AN INTRODUCTION TO

CATHY LOVE Occupational Therapist Coach Speaker Author

For first time readers a quick intro, I am Cathy Love an Occupational Therapist, Coach, Author and Speaker. I am the founding director of Nacre Consulting and I work with parents and disability service providers to achieve brilliant outcomes for children with special needs. I provide a range of services: • Private practice coaching to business owners • Family Service Coaching to help parents manage their child’s team and services • Clinical supervision to individuals and teams • Service delivery consultation to disability service providers More to be read about all that over on my website www.nacre.com.au Each month I write up news, useful information and pearls of wisdom for those working with children and families in the disability sector. Given that it is a rapidly changing landscape and one that is increasingly privatised there is lots of news to be shared.

Welcome. Happy New Year, 2017 is going to be amazing. Many of you are on leave, taking a well-deserved chance to recharge for the year ahead and to connect with family and friends. Enjoy. A surprising number of my clients are returning to work early in January; I am impressed. Their days are booked with new clients, assessments, groups, sessions, home visits, community visits and more. Others are writing eBooks, online courses, tip sheets, workshops and developing downloadable resources. Rest assured, there is a lot going on behind the scenes. As for me, I am working right through the break – writing, refining product development, reading, coaching, nutting out business and marketing plans with my clients. The great thing about working during school holidays is having uninterrupted time; being able to both start and finish activities. January is also the perfect time to look far, far ahead and plan the entire year. I am in the “planning and doing” phase with my clients. My new journal should arrive shortly; my vision board is ready-to-go, my whiteboard is overflowing and I have my big plan just about done. By the end of January I intend to have completed my quarterly social media content and e-mag schedule, finalise downloadable documents and client online membership content, and have campaigns for all of the above good to go. Bring It On. However, it’s not “all work and no play”. Admittedly, I have more time for walks, catch-ups, lunches and dreaming. I am currently writing in a lovely garden, and have the beach just minutes away. Whatever it is that you have planned for your January, enjoy it, as term will be starting before we know it. In this edition we have articles about 2017 planning and resolutions, onboarding staff, file audits, why you need a VA, the legalities of e-commerce and much more. So grab the sunnies, a hat and cold drink, then settle somewhere with fresh air for ten minutes to read our January 2017 edition. Let’s. Do This.

17 The Wrap


INVEST IN

YOURSELF

My current reading and listening lists are a mix of business and personal development content, with one or two rogue elements for fun. I currently aim to cover these off for about one hour each day; I book this into my calendar to ensure this happens even when I am super busy. The best thing about summer break is the extra reading and listening time. This year I am rereading a few favourites and tackling some new ones too.

BOOKS

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey. Covey provides a step-bystep pathway for living with fairness, integrity, service, and human dignity – principles which he says are essential to giving us the security we need to adapt to change, and the wisdom and power to take advantage of the opportunities that those changes create.

How to Thrive Under the NDIS – A Pathway to Sustainability for Service Providers, Fran Connelley. The NDIS is the most significant market disrupter this sector has ever experienced. “How to Thrive Under the NDIS” is written for CEOs of disability organisations to help them handle the transformation from running a charity that is heavily-dependent on government funding, to overseeing a financially sustainable, non-profit in the new world order of the NDIS.

The One Thing, Gary Keller.


PODCASTS

The podcast list continues to grow. Here are the ones I added this month. The Moth According to its website (https://themoth.org/about): “Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theatre, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.” Conversations with Richard Fidler This one is new to me and I am only a couple of episodes in but I am loving it. From http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/ conversations/: “Conversations with Richard Fidler draws you deeper into the life story of someone you may, or may not, have heard about - someone who has seen and done amazing things.”

10 questions with Adam Zwar A podcast where Adam Zwar asks different individuals the same 10 questions, then marvels at the different ways they choose to answer them. (https://www.facebook.com/10QuestionsWithAdamZwar/)

Dent with Glen Carlson This one is an ongoing favourite; despite the episodes being long there is amazing detail and stories to learn from. According to his website, Glen is a business geek and loves getting behind the scenes of other people’s businesses to find out how they did it. This podcast spotlights the stories of influencers in various industries from countries around the world so if you want to create a personal brand get better conversions learn key business skills and find practical and innovative ways to grow a business and make a dent in the universe, this show is for you. “How I built this,” hosted by Guy Raz “These fascinating conversations are for innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. Each episode is a narrative journey marked by triumphs, failures, serendipity and insight — told by the founders of some of the world’s best known companies and brands.” (http://www.npr.org/programs/)

Chat 10 Looks 3. I am a huge fan of Annabelle Crabb and Leigh Sales and their podcast is hilarious. Enjoy. “Annabelle and Leigh talk about books, television, radio, movies, food, politics and whatever else they feel like. Even show tunes.” (http://www.chat10looks3.com/)

ONBOARDING YOUR NEW RECRUITS

SUCCESSFULLY “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients.” - Sir Richard Branson. The first few weeks or days of a new recruit entering your business is critical to the success of your ability to effectively lead and manage the whole team, as well as the long-term happiness and productivity of the new recruit him- or herself. As the business owner you must understand your legal obligations. You also need to prepare effective policies and procedures and engage the whole team in inducting the new recruit. Here are some tips to help you prepared.

basis as your business requirements change. Review all onboarding procedures, checklists, task lists and delegations to ensure this change is captured and easy for the new recruit to digest. Update, update, update. You want your new team-mate(s) to step forward with your current best practice. Set tasks and times and who is responsible for those tasks. You don’t have to do it all on your own. If you have senior therapists and administrative staff, list the activities they can do, discuss the assigned with them, and upskill them as required. Carefully allocate specific tasks to certain days and people; both the trainer and new recruit need to sign off once the agreed tasks are specified.

A new recruit is most likely to leave in their first three months, which is not good for anybody. What can you do more effectively to help ensure that new recruits settle optimally? Here are some ideas to get you thinking.

It’s more than clinical skills. Small business in the disability sector is all about customer service, articulating your values and providing excellent administrative services. Make sure these vital topics are introduced to your staff during their early weeks and then reinforced ongoing. I can’t emphasise this enough.

Check over your Employee Handbook (or equivalent). It is mandatory to have policies and procedures addressing Workplace Health and Safety. Other obligations are outlined in the agreements you have with third parties such as Medicare, NDIA, DSS, including Privacy, Information Handling, Complaint Management and more. It would be ideal to review these agreements and to refamiliarise yourself with the obligations imposed by the laws overseen by the Fair Work Ombudsman.

HR resources may be one area that you do need to obtain specialist advice. Several agencies provided dedicated small business support and are well-worth speaking to. Ultimately, you need to read, review and understand your legal obligations, those of your employees, and how those obligations will be understood and complied with by everyone in your team, including any new recruits.

Review your procedures and checklists. Your business operations change (or should change) on an ongoing

How will you check up on your legal obligations? What needs to be done? What are your timeframes?

3 WAYS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT CAN INCREASE YOUR EFFICIENCY Would you like to get 5 hours (or more) back each week? Research shows that on average, businesses spend at least 10 to 15 hours a week on non-core, unbillable tasks. So, if you’re earning say, $150 an hour, taking all day to do a particular admin or social media task (and tearing your hair out while doing so), it makes sense to pay someone $50 an hour to complete the task in half the time and possibly with twice as much skill. Virtual Assistants not only save you time and money, but they increase your productivity by improving your efficiency. Here are the Top 3 ways a VA can increase your efficiency …

#3 … CRM Maintenance Transform that pile of business cards into a centralised, electronic Customer Relationship Manager (“CRM”) where you can track communications and potential earnings from clients. Awesome CRMs include Capsule, Insightly, 17Hats or the big gun, Infusionsoft. Most, if not all, integrate with email marketing programs and accounting packages, again streamlining and automating processes. Release the admin, regain your time, and focus on your core business activity. What will you outsource to a Virtual Assistant to make your business more efficient?

#1 … Setting Up Processes How much time are you spending on everyday tasks? Do you ever wonder if there is an easier way of doing things? There are tons of programs available now that can help streamline and automate these everyday functions and a VA can help pinpoint these for you, set them up and get them working for you. #2 … Social Media Management We all know that social media can be and is very time-consuming. Sure, you can do it yourself, it’s not rocket science but is it a good use of your time? A VA can create and curate your content, and schedule your posts using programs such as Hootsuite, Buffer or Recurpost, just to name a few. They can also gather data and report on your social media effectiveness.

BUSINESS PLANNING

‘A goal without a plan is just a wish’. January provides time to revisit your business plan, set goals and determine how to successfully implement it all. We want ideas off the wish-list, goals kicked into reality and marketing actioned. Let’s go. Mid-Year or New Year planning. Book time to check your business plan in June and July (if you run to the financial year), or write your 2017 plan now. Yes, it takes time. Yes, you need to know all your numbers inside out. Yes, you need a business plan. I urge you to plan for your lifestyle and your business. To support you with this, we have designed an easy-to-use template specifically for paediatric allied health business owners. Sound useful? It is our gift to the first 7 readers who email me at this address cathy@nacre.com.au We know how to set goals. We were trained to do this, we set goals with clients every day. Now… let’s set them for ourselves and our businesses. Remember to check them weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually to measure progress and tweak activities. Here are some ideas to get you started: • How many hours do you want to be working? • How many new referrals do you need per month? • What’s your 2017 revenue and your personal income goal? • When will you take holidays and where will you go? • How many workshops, downloadable documents, and/or online courses will you sell?

How’s your marketing plan looking? Have you deep-dived to profile your clients; do you truly understand their worries, hopes and future needs? Understanding your market and your target market is “Marketing 101”. Relationship building and content marketing are contemporary ways of reaching your market and target market. Now’s the time to define the content you’ll create and curate and the channels you will use to deliver your content to them: face-toface, social media, web events, newsletters, videos, fact sheets … ideally all of the above. Once term starts it will be operational chaos, so get strategic while you can. Transforming your wishes into reality with a business plan, setting your goals, strategically planning your marketing via great content, and working out how to build and reinforce customer relationships are the big ticket items to work on during the summer break. I am working all through summer on all these and more for my own business. Don’t be shy, you can give me a call any day. How will you implement your marketing plan? What are your next steps with your business plan? How well do you know your business numbers?


5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONDUCT A

FILE AUDIT

Most practices have a combination of paper files and digital files, with information in at least two places (or more, if you or your team use multiple gadgets such as tablets, laptops and phones to communicate about and do your work). Quieter holiday weeks are perfect for tackling a file audit. Whilst it’s not hard, it is timeconsuming. Select three clients from each of your clinicians, then browse their files. Here are five reasons why this is good for your business. 1. Ensuing consistency If your training and support is adequate, all your clinicians should be completing assessments, letters, reports, session notes and reviews in a consistent manner. This ensures your customers are experiencing consistent services from everyone in your team. 2. Performance management An absence of documents (email and conversation logs being the usual culprits) is problematic. Excessive deviation from recommended formats and style can be equally concerning. How will you get the clinicians’ documentation and compliance with record-keeping obligations back-on-track? 3. Alignment to policy and procedures If you find concise, correct and complete files, congratulations, your policies and procedures are well-defined, understood and meticulously

PAEDS BIZ 13

implemented. The reality may be that your team needs a refresher on what’s required and why. How will you do this? 4. Review of standard templates As you audit the files you may notice that they don’t reflect the way you currently speak and deliver services. Templates may be dated and the language a bit tired. NDIS providers would pick up on this instantly. How will you re-work your templates and communicate the updates to your team? 5. Current client content Pause and consider your clients’ perspectives. What would it be like to receive these emails, phones calls, letters, and reports from your business? What could be done to make them even more positive, respectful and family-centred? You may be able to delegate or share the file audit to senior clinical staff, keeping in mind your obligations to staff under privacy laws. A hefty to-do list could be generated from the audit. Plan the actions that are required and tackle each systematically. The ultimate result will help your business become more efficient, quality-driven and client-obsessed.

5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SELLING PRODUCTS ONLINE (E-COMMERCE)

1. Selling products online and running an ecommerce store is a very popular business strategy. You need three main legal documents in order to run your ecommerce store; sale terms and conditions, website terms of use and a privacy policy. 2. Your sale terms and conditions set out the terms under which you sell your products to your customers. These should address what you provide and how you provide it. Delivery, payment, refunds and returns (set out in a refund policy, which should be part of your sale terms), all need to be dealt with in your sale terms. 3. Your sale terms also need to set out the Australian consumer law mandatory consumer guarantees. They should also limit your business liability to the extent possible. An example would be disclaiming any liability if a customer uses a product that you sell in a way it shouldn’t be used and an injury occurs. 4. Every e-commerce site also needs website terms of use, which govern your relationship with visitors to your site. These cover issues such as copyright, protecting your intellectual property including photos of your products, permissible use of the website, and limiting liability for viruses.

PAEDS BIZ 15

5. Finally, make sure you have a website privacy policy that complies with the Australian Privacy Act. Running a successful ecommerce site generally involves marketing to your customers. By law, you need to set out what personal information you collect, how you collect it and how you will disclose and use it. You also need to set out client rights to complain and contact you regarding their personal information. ...
