As you may have already learned, there is a lot more to running a business then diagnosing, prescribing, or operating on your clients, In that area I would not be able to hold a candle to your skill sets but in business you need an entirely different set of skills, such as marketing, technical expertise, advertisement, Hippa compliance, accounts payable, accounts receivables, client retention and that’s to name a few, it is in this area that I have perfected and honed my skills.
