In this podcast episode Gordon talks about productivity and time management in private practice. One of the main things that separates really successful private practice owners from those that struggle the most, is how they manage their time and get things done.

How many times have you felt overwhelmed with the shear volume of stuff that needs your attention? For me, it happened a lot!  So I decided to get a handle on it and look at how I was spending my time and what I could do to better manage not only my time but my productivity.

One of the main productivity “hacks” for most people in private practice is to hire a virtual assistant.  One of the biggest time killers for anyone in practice is doing follow-ups and answering phone calls. So Gordon has a conversation with his virtual assistant and intake coordinator, Nikki Carey, about what they have learned together about managing intakes and helping Gordon spend his time on things that truly need his attention and expertise.
