Whether you like it or not, if you’re an orthodontist who currently owns or wants to own a practice, you’re an entrepreneur. Yes, you signed up to be an orthodontist, but as a business owner, you’re a willing or reluctant entrepreneur.
Many books have been written on the subject of entrepreneurship, but one of the best out there is “Traction”. Written by Gino Wickman, it introduces EOS-the Entrepreneur Operating System-the bible for many businesses. The average business that implements EOS grows 18% per year.
What does that mean to you?
Lets’ say that your practice collects $1 million/year. That means in 5 years, you will have collected $2,287,757 and in 10 years, you will have collected $5,233,835. That’s pretty solid growth. But, it doesn’t come for free. You have to work at it and EOS can get you there.
You need to be disciplined and there are many different facets about EOS that we can discuss at another time, but let’s hav you take the initial EOS questionnaire and see how you do. Before you take it, here are some simple ground rules:
- Be super honest in evaluating yourself. Kidding yourself and giving yourself a top mark when you don’t really deserve one doesn’t help you.
- See rule #1
Click HERE to go take the questionnaire and see how you stack up. This is just the first step in helping your practice reach new heights.
Wishing you the best,
