I think of all of the things that have come up when it comes to running a practice without staff - finding the right programs has been the biggest energy sucker.
The problem is …once you get into the program you find, like a new car, or a shiny toy, you start to learn how it works well or doesn't work well. You learn all of its nuances and hiccups, and you may just find that you've just wasted another 20 hours diving into a program that is not going to get you what you want.
I found that there are a few key programs that make my life easier and streamlined as possible. Sometimes they work together - other times they don't.
When we’re planning to run a practice without staff (or with staff who only does what they're great at doing), it's essential that we have the right tools.
These days, efficiency is everything.
These days, the whole world is running online.
These days, having the right programs to organize, streamline, and automate as much as possible is essential and imperative. (Check out the Facebook Group if you want to know more!)
It's kind of like essential workers, right?
These programs are our essential workers. If we don't have a team, our programs are our essential workers.
I talk a lot about the four options when a task is put in front of you:
The goal is always to protect your time, money, and energy (most important).
If you don't have the right programs in place, you're out of luck. I'm always happy to learn about new programs. So, please be sure to share with me and the community if there are any programs we won’t want to go another moment without.
