The Clinical Entrepreneur

The Clinical Entrepreneur

The Clinical Entrepreneur podcast is for healthcare practitioners who want to turn their clinic into a thriving business and create a life they love. We talk about marketing strategies, building the right team, family, work-life balance, where to find your perfect patient and when to wear your CEO hat. Full of practical information, humor, and a hefty dose of motivation, host Ronda Nelson will inspire you to take massive action toward creating an authentic business you can be proud of — and most importantly, how to make an abundant income that creates financial freedom.⁣ ⁣ With a background in accounting, 20+ years experience running a thriving wellness clinic and educating practitioners all over the nation, Ronda shares her best business and marketing practices so you too can thrive. She knows all too well that being a great clinician won’t get you far if you don’t understand how to run a profitable business!⁣ ⁣ They say life has a plan for us all… Well, after her child’s cancer diagnosis in the 90’s, Ronda fought hard to save her and became a functional medicine doctor. She then grew a successful wellness practice, but later fell into deep financial trouble after a bad investment. Again, she leaned into her business background and dug herself out, re-establishing her practice as the #1 clinic in a highly competitive market. Educating and supporting fellow practitioners along the way, she quickly realized that they too need the business and marketing tools that helped her succeed. Ronda is a bookkeeper, turned clinician, turned consultant and she’s here to make a difference.⁣ ⁣ On the Clinical Entrepreneur Podcast, Ronda distills the best advice from her own experiences, interviews top thought leaders in the clinical and business realm and then applies it to the world of healthcare in a way that is easy to understand and implement. You can expect raw business coaching sessions, honest conversations with industry peers and most importantly: tactical tips and a step-by-step plan to empower entrepreneurs to build a brand they believe in, market themselves in our ever-changing world and create a life they love.

Let me ask you something, friend → 


Are you one of those practitioners who somehow manage to get everything done on a regular basis? 


I mean…of course, you show up for your patients, but I’m talking about all “that other stuff”….


😳 The updated “welcome sequence” emails

😳 The social media posts

😳 The annual branding & office photos 

😳 Those darn Practice Better automations

Let me ask you this:


What do you think your patients say about you?? 


If asked, they might say things like:


🗣 “She’s always really friendly.”

🗣 “He helped me get to the bottom of that joint pain.”

🗣 “The herbal blend she recommended is actually working - it’s great.”

🗣 “Yeah she’s been pretty great - you should try her!”


But here’s the problem…that’s only IF someone asks about you!

I’m not one to sugarcoat things. 


And the truth is…sometimes marketing your business can feel like you're in a boat in the middle of a huge lake, with only one oar.

We're faced with them daily. Everything from the type of shoes to put on in the morning all the way down to the shade of gray that will look best on your kitchen cabinets (but seriously, whyyy are there so many shades of gray!?) 🤪

If we're being honest, analyzing blood labs can be…well, A LOT.

And I mean what really, TRULY works. Because effective marketing is about more than a catchy website headline and nice headshots. Don't get me wrong, these things are important (and I do loveee a professional photo sesh 📸).

How much to charge for your time…


Almost every single practitioner I work with struggles with this.


In fact, over 80% of practitioners (this likely includes you) are undercharging. 🤯


When you're working from a “practitioner mindset,” it's easy to forget that you're also the CEO. 


You heard me right friend…you 👏 are 👏 the 👏 CEO 👏 of 👏 your 👏 business.

Business finances…


"Here's my income, these are my expenses…bada bing bada boom. Right?"


 Well, generally speaking - yes. 


But, if you simply leave it at that (and many people do!) you'll miss the tiny but oh-so-important things that'll leave you wondering where in the heck your money went at the end of the month. 😕


There are little details that MUST be addressed in order to really set yourself u...

Here's a given  - in order for things to run smoothly in your practice, you NEED to have systems in place. But they don't have to be overly complicated in order to work really, REALLY well. So well, in fact, that the business can actually run smoothly without you. (Helllooo, real vacation time 🌴)

I know how hard you work in your practice.


You care so much about the work you do. You're passionate. That's the whole reason you got into this field in the first place - to provide the best care possible and change lives for the better.

Overwhelm…ohhh the overwhelm. 😵‍💫


From endless content creation to patient intake forms, and the laundry list of admin in between, running a business can feel daunting! So daunting, in fact, that it's not uncommon to see practitioners give up on their entrepreneurial dreams. Thankfully, there are ways to safeguard yourself (and your business) from this kind of burnout. 🙌

Several weeks ago, I had an “I-never-want-to-have-that-happen-again” experience with a patient that left me with a serious dose of Imposter Syndrome. 🥺


It happens to all of us, right? A patient disagrees with you and starts to argue and push back, tossing out facts, figures, what they heard on the news, and why they think you’re absolutely wrong. It can leave you feeling a little (or a lot) less confident than you were be...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
