Tremendous shifts are occurring in the wellness industry and are reflected in this edition which is broader in scope than previous editions. The marketing chapter is greatly expanded, the practice management chapter has been split into several chapters; plus there are two new chapters: Conscious Business and Therapeutic Communications. We've added more than 200 new pages of
material, including samples of ads, promotional materials, and contracts. In addition, the forms have been updated and the layout revamped. We hope you find this edition even more useful and fun to use. We were unable to include specific examples for each type of practiceùotherwise this book would have contained many thousands of pages. It's our hope that everyone can easily relate to the examples provided.
Business Mastery3 covers the major aspects of building and maintaining a successful practice. You may find that you only need to concentrate on certain sections of this book depending on your business experience and the degree of clarity you possess. Some of the topics may not be relevant to you now, and may become so in the future. These business skills are fundamental
to your successùwhether you work for someone else or are self-employed. It's beyond the scope of this book to thoroughly educate you in all of these areas. Some skills are extremely difficult to illustrate in a book (such as the delivery components in public speaking). Other topics such as insurance reimbursement may require several books to cover procedures and codes. And scores of books can be found on communication skills. The intent here is to convey the fundamentals for business success and to familiarize you with the other principles and skills so that you can appropriately decide which areas you want or need to pursue.
No matter where you are in your career if you are willing to take a new look at your life and challenge some of your old thought patterns, you will find that reading this book from beginning to end is an incredibly valuable process.
Business Mastery3 has been designed to follow a pattern with the chapters build upon each other. You may need to read a specific chapter and then go back to the beginning of the book. The major culmination of this book is the business plan. Please skim the book eventhough you may go directly to the business plan.
The book filled with numerous exercises and soul-searching questions. One way to make reading it more manageable (and less overwhelming) is to allot a specific amount of time each day to work through the book.
One of the first activities is to create a business journal using a three-ring binder so you can easily add information. Items to keep in this journal are your responses to the exercises, your business plan and samples of your marketing materials.
Appendix A contains business forms you can copy for personal use. Appendix B contains valuable information on working with people with disabilities as well as a business organization directory, professional association registry and listings of IRS and SBA resources.
This is not a book to read and put on a shelf. Business Mastery3 is a handbook and a resource tool for you to use regularly. It will help you create the success that you truly deserve!
