With Easter not far away hopefully you have started to think about what you need to do at your practice when there is a holiday period. Easter eggs have been out in force this year in the shops – for a while too – each time I grocery shop I panic about when Easter is and if I am organised. Seems to always sneak up on me, even though the signs of Easter are in the shops for months!! The Easter period means different things to each of us, but the common thread if you are running a private practice is that you may have a closure period coming up. Here are 5 things to consider this Easter in your practice.

I believe one of the biggest factors that can really set apart a great entrepreneur in health care is the ability to be resilient. It is such an important concept, often overlooked.

The term entrepreneur is not greatly understood I believe. Sometimes it is associated with really out-there ideas, ground breaking wonderful “hang on to your hat” type ideas, and other times it is associated with the little people starting with little ideas. In healthcare it is rare to hear of an entrepreneur – and I often think that is because it has been associated so closely over the last 5 years with ‘business’ and ‘youth’ that people have started to feel it is not something that fits in our industry – I completely disagree! There are so many entrepreneurs in the health care industry.
