The Referral of a Lifetime – My List

When I moved to Omaha, I had lots of what I thought were great ideas to make my career extraordinary.  I was resisted and smashed at every turn, which I think made  me better at career building skills.  Now that I have been in a healthy environment long enough to heal, I feel like I can come back to some of those ideas.  In a good situation, who knows how great things could be.

One of the exercises I did after reading The Referral of a Lifetime was listing 100 clients.  At the time I figured if I had 100 (random number) supporters, I could have a very solid career, and that has been true.  How much more  now in an excellent envoronment.

About the list –

These are clients I like, even ones with different primary doctors.

Any of them I would trust to any of the other 8 GDAH doctors in a heartbeat.  That is such an awesome feeling to have that team.

They could come or go – this is just a list of clients that make me happy now – even some that don’t have pets right now or may not again.

I don’t know if 100 is a good number, but it is a start.  (I just counted – I listed over 100 off the top of my head on my first draft and am adding people daily.)

I am writing this list because it is easy to get discouraged, and remembering good clients is encouraging.

I would also include our whole team on this list.

GDAH is my career.  This list is a GDAH list.  If I die or retire, I would want everyone I care most about to stay at GDAH.

You can’t have favorite clients professionally.  It is nice to have that freedom in a list.

You are on my list.  Always.
