How to Take an Extra Month Off
If you’re producing $500,000 a year now at $300 an hour, you’re taking 1,666 hours to do it. (These numbers are of course just examples—you can fill in your own story and the numbers that reflect your reality.)
As we all know, time and money are part of the same equation. But what we sometimes forget is that a relatively modest increase in revenue can have a profound impact on the time side of the equation.
For instance, what happens if you set and achieve a goal of $350 an hour? Trust me, this is actually quite a modest goal. Over the years, I have personally seen countless dentists increase their hourly rate by $50 or more within six months, just by implementing a few carefully-targeted strategies around things like case management, the new client experience and other basic value-creation techniques. Anyone can do it. In fact, I’ve created an entire course that’s available on our digital learning curriculum to showing how simple it really is.
Reach that target of $50 more an hour and suddenly that figure of 1,666 hours has dropped to 1,428 hours. Congratulations, you’ve just liberated another 30 days for yourself.
