Episode #64 3 Steps you can take today to Protect your Practice
Is it a recession? A slow down? Something else? Regardless, NPs need to understand how to protect their practices and even thrive.
The news is quite unsettling these days on many fronts and there is a lot of talk in healthcare about the economy and if, when, and how it will impact healthcare and healthcare practices.
Episode #62 Why You Can't Bootstrap without the Boots
It’s not uncommon that NPs approach business with the idea that they can bootstrap their business. Indeed, if you do an internet search, you’ll find tons of articles on how to bootstrap your business. Indeed, there are many companies that did their startup this way. However, it just means they did not go after investors. They still have some startup capital.
In episode #62 of the NP Business Matters podcast, we talk about the idea of bootstrapping and what it really means. We'll also take a look at a minimal practice startup from the perspective of a mobile practice of seeing patients in their homes, ALF, or SNFs.
Ready? Let's get to it!
Episode #62 What Type of Insurances Do You Need for Your Practice
There are several different kinds of policies and areas of coverage when it comes to business insurance. For practice owners, this can get a bit confusing.
In this episode #62 of the NP Business Matters Podcast, I'm talking about the different kinds of insurance, why you might want to have them, and where to find them. I'll also talk briefly about professional liability insurance.

#59 How to Fund Your NP Practice
In this episode of the NP Business Matters Podcast, I talk about the different ways you can fund your Nurse Practitioner practice.
And while it was all about funding for start-up, I do mention AR funding, which is more of a funding source when you are already in business (oops!).

#58 Starting Your Practice With a Framework
Starting a practice is not an easy thing to do, nor is it a linear process. There are several moving parts, Many things are happening all at once and they are often interdependent on one another. That's where a framework comes in.
Show notes & video version:
Wow! Episode 28 with Dr. Hardy was everything I needed to hear going into this work week. I am not an NP, but I do work in healthcare as an MLS, (ASCP). Dr. Hardy’s professional and personal experiences resonated with me as woman trying to elevate herself in the medical field, while balancing everyday life. Thank you for such an incredible interview!
Episode 33: Hard to listen to
Wow. I have to assume this upload was a mistake. This episode was littered with awkward pauses, restarts, etc. Overall the podcast isn’t too bad, could do without the cheesy light jazz intro music, but otherwise appreciate the content and discussion usually.
Excited for this needed NP podcast!
I am so excited to be listening in to every episode! Just started my own practice and looking forward to more learning and inspiration! Thanks for all you do!
