In this episode, Rachel is joined by Tara Humphrey, Founder and CEO of THC Primary Care and host of the podcast ‘The Business of Healthcare with TaraHumphrey’

We chat about the main mistakes GPs and other professionals make when trying to run a business, either trying to do everything themselves or not paying enough attention to the business side of things. Even if we don’t run a practice, many of us are self-employed and are running ourselves as a business!

Time is often our limiting factor and there just isn’t enough time to get everything done that we need to. This can be profoundly frustrating and lead to all kinds of stress. Tara chats about the need for strategic planning both in our own lives and for our businesses and partnerships and how setting goals not just for the day but the next 90 days can be vital. We also discuss how getting help can be a life-saver, be it admin support or coaching to help you set priorities.

Tara’s top tips:

1. Write down your priorities for the next 90 days
2. Plan your day before you start work
3. Block off time to do things that refuel you
4. Ask for help when you can
