20/20 Money Episode # 78 – The How and Why of Having an Accountability Partner as an Optometrist with Drs. Jennifer Stewart and Jeremy Ciano

May 4, 2020

Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guests on today’s show are Drs. Jeremy Ciano and Jennifer Stewart. Longtime listeners of the show will recognize those names as I’ve had them both on a number of times in both 1-1 interviews as well as a three-way discussion. I respect both of their opinions and perspective as they both run highly successful practices, and that success does not come by accident.

Jennifer and Jeremy join me in today’s conversation to discuss accountability as a business owner. As practice owners, it can be sometimes be hard to set and maintain goals that we set for ourselves. Because there’s no one other than ourselves truly holding us accountable to our goals, it can be easy to slip into a sense of complacency or lose focus on where one needs to “move the needle” in their practice. Jennifer and Jeremy talk about where to find an accountability partner and how to make accountability work for everyone involved, some of the areas of their practice that they hold each other accountable, the frequency with which they check in and how they tie their frequent accountability check-ins to their long-term goals.

I’m a firm believer in having an accountability partner and I hope you enjoy this episode and that it empowers you to find someone or a small group to collective help everyone achieve more. Progress, growth, and thus profitability happen when you stay focused on your KPIs in your practice.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm, how we serve ODs around the country, or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Jeremy Ciano and Jennifer Stewart.
