3 Key Points:   

  1. Many business owners focus on lead generation when their energy would be better spent on retention and client satisfaction.   

  2. If you’re looking to open up a second healthcare practice, consider opening another type of business that you could run more passively.   

  3. When starting out as a consultant, prioritize learning from the best.
