It Isn’t About The Money

All the fun in entrepreneurship and Urbanrehab isn’t really about the money.

Yes, we do pay our therapist very well and yet still have enough to take care of our own expenses.

Yeah, we do have more than we had before, we can now buy more chips, treat friends and loved ones to meals without thinking like a thousand times, but really, entrepreneurship isn’t all about the money.

True, money’s great for many things.

…but the most important thing is that the freedom that we have, to do the best we can for our patients, our doctors, our therapists.

Though there are stresses and difficulties, yet, I’m happy, when we do the level best that we can provide, and they are grateful and happy.

I can’t put the emotions and thoughts to words, but I can try to describe to you -

I feel really, really glad, that we’ve built this. I am so glad we have the opportunity to do this.

It’s a kind of deep, deep joy, not like those quick laughs when you see a funny video or hear a funny joke, but it’s a kind of very warm, fuzzy sort of happiness, that’s deep inside.

And that’s what that keeps me going.

I think I need to step away from direct day to day tasks

I think it’s time for me to step away from the direct hands on in my clinics already.

What had happened was that there was a walk-in patient that came to our clinic without calling, and all our therapists were fully booked. So our front counter informed him that we’re fully booked and that he has to wait for 1.5 hours to get his appointment.

He looked disappointed, so I wanted to do my best to ensure we could serve him and gain a new patient, so I tried to shift the timing of other therapists to serve him, but the patient left in the end…

…leaving me with two annoyed therapists, whose schedules I had almost scrambled.

Hmm.

I think I should definitely stay away from the day to day and focus on what I do best – simplify processes and connect referring accounts.
