The IBCLC as a Business
Healthcare is undergoing waves of rapid change, from a local to global standpoint. Many IBCLC's are finding themselves in challenging work environments, or maybe without work at all. If the numbers present on social media groups such as Face book or Linked in are an indicator, more and more IBCLC's considering or starting their own private practice are growing each year. However, many don't have a business background, and aren't sure where to begin. In addition, it's very easy to spend a lot of money without planning properly; leading to a tremendous debt load before the business has a chance to stabilize. This session will cover the basics needed for starting and sustaining the PPLC.
