Staying Up to Date to Stay Out Front.

Technology is evolving at a breakneck speed. Information is ever-changing. All while you're trying to grow your practice. Yet, without staying current on virtually everything under the sun, you can't be in the know - or in the lead.

Socialize. See what others are talking about. Learn from your peers and friends. Create a page on Facebook*. Ask friends to join your network on LinkedIn*. Have patients follow you on Twitter*. Also, advertise on each site. Get yourself out there. Not sure where to start? Each offers easy-to-follow instructions.

Network offline. Attend seminars and tradeshows. Not only industry-specific topics, but also events that interest you, and possibly your patients. Meet, greet, talk, exchange ideas. Because the more you know, the more you can relate to patients.

Read. A lot. Pick up industry magazines. But don't overlook savvy publications like Wired (http://www.wired.com) or Mashable (http://www.mashable.com), a social media guide that tells you what's hot and what's not.

Make it your business to learn constantly, to be interested continually. Because when you grow, your practice grows.
