"I would love to work for myself. I don't have a lot of experience running a business. I don't have a lot of money to start a business. I don't want to have to deal with the stress of billing, coding, credentialing and managing office staff. I'm not sure I could figure out how to have a cash only practice that works. Actually, I wouldn't mind having a part time business. Is this possible.?"
Oh yes, it is certainly is.
The key to running a successful NP business is find a niche that answers a community problem and fits you. My niche actually found me. As an avid traveler, my primary care patients would ask me about their trips, their kid's trips, their parent's trips. And I realized a couple of things....
First ,I wanted out after 30 years of running my own primary care practice. The administrative burdens, health care crisis and future uncertainties, never mind the long hours, billing, coding and management issues and all the things that were taking me away from what I wanted to do most - spend time with patients, had worn me down. I wanted a part time, low stress, profitable practice. Second, there was a need int he community that wasn't been addressed.
And so, I made a plan and started a travel clinic. My plan was to start it slow and easy while I was still doing primary care and then close the primary care practice once my travel clinic was performing where I wanted it to.
And then I had so many NP's and RN's asking me how can they could do this that in 2016 I ran a live 2 day program on how to start and run a travel clinic. It meant you had to take time off, travel and try to absorb all that information in 2 very full days.
That's when I decided to make this an online program. Do it at your own speed, replay it as needed. Have access to it all 24/7 for 365 days.
