I have no doubt, every expanding practice goes through a challenging time. The challenge is an expanding client base and capacity to meet demands of the work.
Since M left, I have been building up a client base. The rate of growth has been the most rapid in my practice’s life. This is through sheer hard work on marketing a few months back.
The recent expansion has made it incredibly difficult for me. It is the hours I work with hardly any time for myself. When I am feeling down, I wish the expansion would stop. In my sane moments, I want my luck to continue. Continue reading “My Week – Overtrading”
I am working less on my business and my client contact has reduced substantially now.
My staff is thankfully taking on more responsibility. Though it is still not as much as I want it be. I am not sure whether this is a one-off or it will always be the way from now on. Continue reading “My Week – Have I Semi-Retired?”
I felt overwhelmed this week because I was trying to achieve too much and in the end not getting that much work done. I think my practice has got to the stage where it is vital that I make wise choices on work I should concrete on. Continue reading “My Week – Need to see the wood for the trees”

There were times I wanted to get back into employment, back to my high salary. Something was holding me back. That something was I do not fit anywhere. That has always been the way for me. Continue reading “My Week – Taking Stock”
Shop front was back on the agenda earlier on in the week. It was the same one which the landlord was not willing to lease it to us earlier.
The deal he wanted commercially did not gel together. Also, his lease terms were unreasonable. The shop is still vacant. Unless the landlord changes his terms, I cannot see it being taken by anyone. Continue reading “My Week – Shop Front Again”
It was clear Sift had put a lot of thought, time and effort in organising Practice Excellence Conference. It was well worth attending.
I was not impressed with the early morning sessions. I think, I was very much in the minority. I have read too many self-help books including attending master motivational guru Anthony Robbins Unleash the Power within seminar. I know what and how the motivational gurus will talk. It was not a surprise. It was not for me. I really have had more than my fill of all these type of events and reading. Continue reading “My Week – The Conference”
