As part of the plan to turn the practice around, I met with local and regional practice groups, arranged in-services, established a company web presence, and engaged and oversaw the work of vendors on search engine optimization (SEO) and online marketing.In the first year, we were able to save the company, which had fallen behind on payments to vendors and damaged relationships with referring practice groups, by rebuilding both sets of relationships, an achievement for which the president and majority partner commended me directly.After turning around the organization, I then grew it from two practitioners to six and revenues from $1M to more than $4M, achieving full profitability in 2005 and peak profitability of $150,000 net in 2015.
