Driving the “Net” • • • • • •

Which is better? 65% or 70% 65% of $680,000 is $442,000 (NET: $238,000), but… 70% of $1,000,000 is $700,000 (NET: $300,000) 65% of $1,000,000 is $650,000 (NET: $350,000) Is this an investment issue or “revenue” issue? Maybe it’s both!

Understanding Practice Economics • Overhead is 100% until you break even • Overhead is the lowest after break-even (variable) • Driving hourly growth is key • Driving capacity is also key

• Investing in the right team profile

COMFORT ZONE

Understanding the Culture of Growth Pyramid (and where you currenty stand within it) it is important in establishing the next steps in your journey to success. A Culture of Growth with a Leadership & Learning Framework in place allows you to only feel risk when you are spending too much time in your “comfort zone.”

The Three Drivers of Possibility

Believe it or not, we all get to choose where we stand in our careers. The default setting for most of us is to stay within the Comfort Zone. That’s the place that keeps us feeling warm, cozy and safe. We need to get out of Cruise Control, punch through the Risk Zone that acts as a barrier to the Learning and Growth Zones. But only after we encounter our Pivotal moments can we advance far enough to stay firmly planted in the land of Growth.

1 CHOOSING YOUR PLACE

Steady and consistent progress compounds to success beyond your highest expectations, opening up more available choices about practice and personal lifestyle.

2 CLARITY FOR ECONOMICS

3 THE IMPACT OF COMPOUNDING

The lowest overhead is after you break even. Top-line growth after that significantly impacts your net. Invest to protect and enhance it.
