Solve, Not Sell (+ NPLEX Results).

In my Practice Management (aka Business) class, my professor says that as doctors, we won't be trying to "sell" ourselves to future patients, instead we'll be trying to "solve" their problems. Solve, not sell. Our job is to connect with members of the community and try to solve their problems rather than sell them on why naturopathic medicine is for them. Our goal is to share and educate (hopefully future) patients on the benefits naturopathic medicine and how it can help to solve their problems, and then the (hopefully future) patient will then sell the idea to themselves and book an appointment to see you. We just need to plant the wellness seed in their head and then they must decide whether or not they want to make an appointment and start their health journey!

I thought I would take the time to let my readers know that I passed my board exam, NPLEX 1 (written on August 7, 2012)!  I found out the news a couple of weeks ago, but many of my classmates didn't find out until late last week, so I wanted to wait until everyone heard before spreading the news of my own results. Thanks again for following along my journey to become a Naturopathic Doctor.  With this big exam out of the way, I am well on my way (over 50%) of achieving my dream job!
