    How Do You Measure Progress? The Allied Health Biz Quiz

    How Do You Measure Progress? The Allied Health Biz Quiz

    Do you ever get the sinking feeling that so many other businesses around you are growing and growing? Like larger organisations are getting larger by the hour, and other private practices just keep popping up? 

    Behind the scenes here at Nacre, there has been quite a lot going on, but something that’s definitely stood out is the notion of how we can help Allied Health business owners track their progress - and it just so happens to be the topic for the latest PPMP episode. 

    For many business owners, this feeling of rising competitiveness can take a toll. But the key is to acknowledge that you can’t control how much others grow or flourish.  

    Learn to let that go. Instead, what you can control is setting your own targets. Measuring your own progress. 

    Think of Allied Health Businesses as a competitive sport. Or rather, as a solo sport. Think about how you’re competing on your own terms - competing against yourself. 

    What kinds of standards are you setting for yourself? What tools do you use? What questions do you ask yourself? 

    Every business on the planet should be embracing improvement, but not all of them know quite how.  

    That’s why we’ve created the Allied Health Biz Quiz. You’ll hear all the details in the latest episode, including why you should be completing the quiz, how to complete it, and how it will benefit you and your team. 

    So, stop waiting and watching on the sidelines, and get into the game.  

    The Allied Health Biz Quiz is all about helping you get what you want out of it so that the business works for you, not you working for the business.

    How a New Website Can Benefit Your Business

    How a New Website Can Benefit Your Business

    When did you last look over your business website? Is it as up to date as it should be? Or could it really use some much-needed importance? 

    In this week’s episode, I’m sharing our experience creating a brand-new website for Nacre. It’s been a journey (to say the least), but I knew I had to share my tips and tricks to help all of you awesome people who want to revamp their website. 

    Think of your website like your online real estate. It’s quite literally your shopfront for people to discover what you do and what you’re all about.  

    Another way to think of it is like a garden. You could have all the bees and birds in the world exploring your garden, but if it’s not well maintained, they won’t stay there very long. Essentially, your website isn’t going to maintain itself. It needs just as much care and attention as you would put into your brick-and-mortar. 

    You’ll hear in this episode our experience with Webbies and their guidance, being prepared for a fair amount of mental work, why you shouldn’t compromise on headshots, the importance of your home page, and all about the draft phase of ‘change-your-mind phase’. 

    A new, updated website will not only look great, but it will essentially refresh and refine your brand. And when potential customers and clients explore it, they’ll take note of how much care you’re putting into your site.

    Exploring How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome

    Exploring How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome

    When I say, “Imposter Syndrome”, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? 

    This is such a fascinating subject, and one that I’m keen to bring to your business owner ears. Did you know that up to 70% of individuals have experienced imposter syndrome at some point in their lives? 

    Imposter syndrome can rear its ugly head in many ways. Those who feel this type of self-doubt often find it more difficult to accept their accomplishments. They also don’t feel deserving of accolades, whether that be personally or professionally. 

    It’s described as a psychological pattern of doubting, where success is attributed to luck…and luck alone. 

    Deep down, we all know that’s not the case. You’re hardworking, passionate, and have come so far no matter where you are in your journey. But imposter syndrome is very real, and there’s no point in trying to deny that it’s there. Learning to acknowledge those ugly imposter thoughts when they pop up in your mind is the first step to getting past this thinking pattern. 

    In this episode, I take a deep dive into this interesting phenomenon. You’ll hear me discuss common patterns to look out for (such as anxiety and repetitive thoughts), where and how it can start, and how to live with and manage imposter syndrome. 

    So, in what ways can you be taming your inner critic? And how can you be shining a light on your inner cheer squad as well? It’s time to reframe those thoughts and learn to curate your beliefs and language a little more strategically and assertively.  

    While exterior perceptions might view you as an overnight success, only you really know the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into the success that you are experiencing and have experienced.

    Your Top 10 Magic Moments in 2021

    Your Top 10 Magic Moments in 2021

    If there was ever a time to get out a pen and paper to jot some notes down, it’s right now. So before you keep reading or listening to this episode, get ready for some good old-fashioned note-taking. 

    There isn’t enough celebration going on. Even though 2021 has had its own challenges, I want you to think about how you acknowledge what you’ve achieved, and how you celebrate what you’ve achieved. Where do you dig and harvest inspiration? Are you building in enough time to ponder and actively reflect? 
    What will you be celebrating in 2021? Think about your small, medium, and large memories. Activate those memories and mine for those gold nuggets that were brought to us in 2021. 
    Next let’s think about the power of the pause. Often times, we have to schedule our pauses. When do you build in a pause across the day? Sometimes you have to stop in order to start again. 
    Across the last 12 months, who are the people, events, places that have inspired you? Identify those sources of inspiration. 
    Now let’s check in on the events that have activated you. Whether that be international, national, local - what has motivated you? 
    We also consider any places that energise. Where do you go to feel refreshed and revitalised?  
    Another important element is about capturing powerful insights. Whether they’re positive, negative, or interesting. What have been your biggest personal insights, triumphs, learnings, or learnings that you’ve had across this year? What have been your steepest business learnings this year? In what ways have you contributed to your local community?  
    Lastly, let’s celebrate remarkable impact. How have you had a positive impact on those around you this year? 

    Kudos to each and every one of you for all the hard work you’ve put in this year. Let’s see what 2022 has in store. By my calculations, the best is yet to come. 

    “Celebrate what you want to see more of.”
