The Practice Lab Update: June 2019
The winter months are generally a very busy time for private practices in Australia. Not only that, June is an important month for businesses as they review the financial year gone by, in preparation for the new financial year.
How did you kick off the busy season last month?

If you didn’t get a chance to finish your business review and planning last month, it’s not too late to do so now!
6 Signs You Need to Change Your Private Practice Business Attitude
Do you find that you work so hard non-stop, yet your practice doesn’t seem to be growing?
If so, one reason might be that your approach to business may need readjusting.
If you agree with any of the following statements, read our blog on reevaluating your private practice business attitude!
- “I can’t block out any hours for business tasks. What if clients want to book in during that time?”
- “I can’t do business meetings (or other tasks) during XAM-XPM because that’s my prime client time.”
- “I’d happily book in a spontaneous, same-day appointment in the time slot that I saved to do admin or business tasks.”
- “I’d rather do my business-related stuff in my own time and leave the business hours to just see clients.”
- “I don’t have enough time to work on my business properly because I’m seeing clients until late at night (or I have back-to-back appointments).”
- “I could never imagine dedicating a whole day a week to business tasks and miss out on a whole day’s worth of revenue.”
