Dr. Ken Hicks practice launch | I’m raising some money to help launch my new practice. You’re help is so appreciated!
A New Start:
Sometimes, new starts are long, planned out adventures. All the ducks are in a row and all of the i’s have been dotted. And, sometimes, life happens.
I have a chance for a new start that, while I wasn’t quite planning on it, I’m actually extremely excited about. It’s simple. I had a job and a paycheck and everything seemed fine. Opening my own practice again was a “down the road” kind of thing. And then life happened. Now it’s a “wheels on the pavement” kind of thing. By the way, the loss of the job was a result of major cutbacks in insurance reimbursements for chiropractors in Tennessee. Nothing “bad” happened. There was simply no budget left to pay for my position after the cuts.
My intention is to open a very simple, very laid back, but very effective practice. I want to bring my nearly two decades of experience to bear in a much more intimate setting. I’ve spent the recent past in a great, but very busy practice. As I write this, I have just turned 50. My pace has changed. My intentions have grown up a bit and I’m ready for a slow, but fun and results driven practice. Building from the start with an ultra-low overhead model will allow me to do just this.
I have an amazing opportunity to do it right here in Chattanooga.
I need your help. Nothing like asking friends and family for money, but that’s exactly where I find myself. To be clear, I’m not asking for donations or charity. I plan to pay you back. And, yes, you might even get a t-shirt.
The impact of your contribution is actually big for me. The timing in this whole adventure is really fantastic with the one glaring exception of the ability to cover my start-up costs. Like I said, I didn’t pick the timing. But, in the age-old “make lemonade” way, I’m going to do more than just get by. I’m going to make it a great thing.
I’m trying to raise $7,500. Which really isn’t much to start a practice. But it’s more than I can put my hands on at the moment, and the moment happens to be here now. So, I ask.
I anticipate needing around $3,000 for clinical equipment, $2,000 for furnishings, and the last $2,500 for a little working capital to get things started. That’s it.
For Chattanooga locals, there are options. If you prefer, you can use any contribution toward future care. And, if you contribute $1,000, I will take care of you for free for as long as I’m in practice. That should give you at least 15 years! If you contribute $2,000, I’ll take care of you and your immediate family for as long as I’m in practice. I’d love to give you that as a show of my appreciation.
If you have any questions at all just email me at [email protected]. I’m happy to answer any and all of your questions. To find out a little more about what I’m doing to prepare, check out www.drkenhicks.com.
