You may or may not have missed my presence here at Social Media DDS for the past few weeks. Why have I been MIA?
I have been taking my own advice.
I have been balancing.
As many of you know, for the past year, I have been in the process of designing, creating, building and opening a new office for my dental business. One month ago today, the new office finally opened. During this past month, I have seen and helped orchestrate an amazing enhancement to our business model and I am loving this process. Family Dental Care Park Ridge is fully integrating its website presence along with it’s presence on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Our previously weak integration on LinkedIn has been strengthened recently and our online activity is humming along at a nice pace. And that’s where the balance comes in.
Sometimes, with all of the responsibilities involved in a rapidly growing business, plates are dropped. The balance and precision involved in keeping all of life’s plates spinning at the same time is sometimes tedious.
And sometimes…something has to give.
And, for the past month, it has been my activity here at Social Media DDS. For awhile, my energies will continue to be focused on my new office. I am extremely pumped about it’s potential and the enthusiasm the office is generating.
And, here’s the really good news. Everything that I believe in with regards to social media and the dental industry is being put to the test and the results are astounding. My office is making connections via social media that are creating growth and potential. One of my favorite social media stories involving the new office is that our new and unbelievably awesome hygienist “found” me via one of my Word of Mouth YouTube videos! She loved what she saw and she took a chance and reached out to me and, well..the rest is history. AND, my patients LOVE her.
So, while I may be concentrating on keeping the plates spinning at my new office and spending a little less time here at Social Media DDS temporarily, know that I am my word. I am Social Media DDS personified at my new office…and it’s working!
What are the balancing acts in your life? Are you able to keep your plates spinning?
