Hey Group Practice listeners! In this real talk episode, Amy Parks and I go deep on Shiny Object Syndrome and how it relates to group practice owners specifically.

Here’s what we’ll discuss:

  • how social media plays into shiny object syndrome
  • the temptation to always get the next best thing
  • when it’s worth it to make changes
  • taking the time to find the ease within yourself
  • ideas for how to combat shiny object syndrome
  • looking vs. doing

The show

The podcast is structured so that you get practice building tips in small doses, where an episode can be listened to (and a group practice building lesson can be learned) in a single car ride.

Episodes are structured into categories: coaching sessions where I coach a group practice owner on a specific topic, tips of the day by yours truly, real talk where you get to be a fly on the wall while an established group practice owner and I talk about the highs and lows of ownership, and trainings done by experts in the field.
