I'm not lying...
clinic really is a goldmine waiting for someone to take it
I want to give you a little scenario as
to the true potential the clinic has to offer to it's new
Before I do though I have to stress I am not a lawyer or
accountant and this can't be taken as financial advice and as they say in the financial papers your returns
could be greater or less than those shown here.
It should be a
lot, lot more but you could be terrible at treating and keeping patients - in which case it won't
clinic has a gross turnover of £135,000 with just me working there on my lonesome.
If you bought
clinic and you decided you wanted me to be your associate I'm prepared to stay on and work with you for 60%. I
want you to succeed and prosper so I'm happy to stay on for a good couple of years whilst you transition the
clinic to your own style of practice - but I wouldn't work for less than 60%. You could of course always give
Imagine, in this
scenario, you decided you wanted to be busy from the start so I would reduce the number of patients I saw by a
third and you would take over those straight away.
Lets see how
that would look:
Out of the
turnover of £135,000 you would get 1/3rd straight away as I reduced the number of patients I saw.
That would give you £45,00.
£90,000 I took you would get 40% of that - or £36,000.
£45,000 plus £36,000 is £81,000 a year.
£81,000 a year with no growth to the patient
numbers no change to how the clinic runs and no change to the clinic opening hours.
Do that for
three years and you have made £243,000 - almost the cost of the clinic!
Of course these figures are gross takings
and are just illustrative. It depends on your expenses and overheads as to what your nett income will be,
but - and this is the important thing these figures
figures show no change in how the clinic is run and the hours it is open!
Out of a possible
11 shifts a week (Monday - Friday mornings and afternoons and Saturday morning) I only work on average just over 7.
because that is all I want to do - not because the potential to see more isn't there!
If you were to
open more (and with a couple of practitioners working that's easy to do) there is almost another four shifts
worth of extra patients to be seen. Put another way, there would be an increase in turnover of almost 50% again and
it all goes you way!
And that is only
with you and (possibly) me there!
more therapists to do
more treatments and the turnover
increases yet again!
potential is huge for the right person!
Thirty years ago
that person would have been me - but not now.
Now it's time for
me to have a few more holidays...
Now it's time to
pass on the baton and let someone else grow and expand the clinic!
