I was recently interviewed by students from a local college studying business. It was really neat to be interviewed by them. They asked about the strengths and weaknesses of business as well as marketing efforts and competition. I spent around 60-90 minutes with them and there will be subsequent interviews.
The more questions they asked, the more passionate I became. I really enjoy being in a practice where I can make the decisions. If I feel a referral to another health care provider needs to be made, I don’t have to worry about what corporate will say. If I want to prescribe a certain brand of lens or contact lens, I am not limited. I can spend as much time examining a patient as I want.
I’ve been practicing in my own business for 24 years and still enjoying it. The fact that I can share this with young individuals is great.
