    Each neuromodulator differs in formulation and has different components that hold their peptides to create a stable, active, complex absorption... So one of the main reasons for the longevity effects is the peptide it's made up of. - Ashley CarterComprehensive consultation, how important that is, and really educating your patients on a full good skincare routine—it involves all those elements.

    Using Data to Drive and Scale a DSO with Eric Pastan, David Wilson and Greg Mahoney

    Using Data to Drive and Scale a DSO with Eric Pastan, David Wilson and Greg Mahoney

    Even before the turn of the new millennium, the power of data and information has been apparent. But in the last few years, we’ve seen how data analytics have driven various industries to advance and scale, particularly the medical and dental industries.

    Data allows DSOs and MSOs to provide the appropriate response, services and patient care, which allows for better operations management and growth projection.

    In this episode, James Turcott talks with Eric Pastan, David Wilson, and Greg Mahoney about the success stories on how the power of data and how using analytics and key performance indicators drive and scale DSOs, and what it really means to be a data-driven DSO.

    In this Episode, You’ll Discover
    How the quality of data input into the system mattersThe practice management system as a crucial tool to drive dataData tracking in different fields of the medical and dental industriesHow leadership and a culture of excellence ties into being data-drivenAnalyzing performance and success indicatorsSetting up data collection infrastructure to back up data Episode Insights
    What being a data-driven DSO means is creating leadership and creating a culture of excellence around what the data is saying and that everyone is all in all the time and always looking to improve and more accurately predict and forecast performance. - James TurcottFrom inside the four walls of our office, what's gonna dictate success is our people understanding what they need to do in order to create success in their role for the organization. And those are what those KPIs are intended to do. - Eric PastanTypically what I've done when I've come in and looked at a situation is I've tried to simplify it and take the noise out of it. Because ultimately, companies, as they move through time, have a tendency to go down the rabbit holes and collect more and more information. Keep it simple. Keep the focus on the data on the four corners of the page and communicate that throughout the entire organization so that everybody's operating on the same page. - David WilsonAbout the Guests:

    M&A in the Med Spa Industry with Tedd Van Gorden

    M&A in the Med Spa Industry with Tedd Van Gorden

    Albert Einstein once famously said, “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” As we are seeing a lot of macroeconomic headwinds brought on by the reaction to inflation and a looming economic recession, there is foreseeable growth in the med spa and aesthetic industry.

    New technology in the form of digital platforms and physical equipment has brought new excitement to this space, and many private equity firms have shown a huge interest in acquiring businesses that have the right mix of assets and opportunities.

    Listen as Ben and Tedd Van Gorden, VP of M&A  at Skytale Group talk about the growing demand and attraction in the med spa industry and how business owners looking to sell can strategically add value to their businesses.

    The market is expected to grow from 13.9 billion to 23.4 billion. So 10 billion in growth by 2027. That equates to a compounding growth rate of around 11%. And they expect it to grow an average of 11% per year until the year 2027. That's an incredible amount of growth, especially in comparison to some of these more established healthcare industries that a lot of investors are already saturated with. - Tedd Van GordenInvestors want to know about you as the owner. What's your story? Why did you start this business? What do you think about your business? What is your day-to-day impact on the business? What are your roles and responsibilities? They really just want to get to know about you and what you do that's unique. Why do you think your business is great and what do you wanna do going forward? - Tedd Van GordenIf you're thinking about selling and if you're thinking about talking with investors, they'll wanna know why you're selling and what your personal goals and interests are. Investors really dig in on this. - Tedd Van GordenMed spa owners should surround themselves with trusted advisors: a good lawyer, consultant, or even an M&A  advisor. These trusted advisors are outside people that you have faith in to give good advice and perspective. - Tedd Van GordenI've always been baffled by anyone who would sell their business without some help, being that it's typically your largest income-producing asset. And for most of us, if we do ever sell, it'll be one time that we do so in our life. - Ben HernandezAbout the Guest:
