My partner and I have benefited from the Decade One program in a few different ways. We have used the business knowledge to better understand how to run a successful small business. We can actually understand where we are succeeding and where we need work, rather than just looking at the bank account. We have each set goals, and rather than just saying we will do things, we have a feeling of accountability and are striving to reach the goals we set. We have also enjoyed meeting and getting to learn about other veterinarians close to us. It has given us a sense of comradery thinking that we may be helping each other with similar issues, or even just being contacts for each other.
Individually, it has also given me a sense of empowerment. Rather than just running a small 2, now 3-Doctor practice by a hope and a prayer, I understand what we are doing and why. I use what we have spoken about in the meetings to be more confident in day-to-day and long-term business decisions. Very simply, this is a great program, for vets at any size hospital, anywhere in the country!
