SmartStart Practice


Recognizing new veterinary practice owners as well as current owners yearned for simple but effective practice management advice, I founded a company that provided a mini-MBA in practice management. Based in Portland, OR this company provided a self-study and tutored business education course like no other. It was my first venture into the creation of a course designed to teach the most essential nuggets of knowledge regarding thriving, rather than surviving in practice ownership. We struck strategic relationships with commercial lenders that provided course graduates with a preferred interest rate on business loans, rewarding them for completing the course and saving them thousands of dollars in interest.

Lesson Learned: Education is a powerful tool. Combining strategic relationships adds value, and its possible to create a work product once, that can be recycled over and over again without redoing the work.
