We had the technical knowledge to do our specific jobs but never focused on our practice as a business. This had us circling the drain within a short amount of time of being fully operational.

Shortly after, we had a “lightbulb moment” at a GG12 Retreat during a Team Member breakout session. Tom Rich did a Veterans Day presentation, and we sat down with a GG12 Coach, Lisa Weber, to talk about implementing a plan. The best part about GG12 is that you can pick, choose, and tweak the tools you want to fit your practice. That’s precisely what we did with Tom’s Veterans Day idea.
