Which Corporate Entity (S-Corp, LLC, etc.) Should I Choose for My Medical Spa?
Thursday, December 27
1–2pm, Central Time

Description:

It is important for any new or existing business to understand how to best protect themselves, which often begins with forming an entity to shield oneself from personal liability. However, there are many considerations that go into selecting the entity type as well as how to properly structure it once that type is selected. Additionally, there are many other business considerations that influence the type of entity and entity structure. This webinar highlights common pitfalls regarding entity type and structure and provides insights on issues to flag for legal counsel, including differences and qualifications in tax elections (disregarded, C-corp, S-corp, partnership) and their applicability to each formation type.

Referrals and Retention in Your Med Spa
Recorded Wednesday, August 8


***This webinar is free of charge for members and non-members***

 
In a world filled with seemingly unlimited choices and low-cost providers, how can your practice stand out and thrive? How can you ensure patients don’t simply shop you to find the lowest-priced provider?
 
What about referrals? What causes patients to refer friends and family members? More importantly, what keeps a patient from cheerfully recommending you and your services?
 
Like it or not, all MedSpa businesses are commodities. Your competitors sell the exact same thing you do. How do you combat any commodity business and see massive growth without having to compete on price?
 
There are two primary ways, and we’re going to cover both in this webinar. Don’t miss this content-packed webinar, where I will show you exactly what you need to do to grow and scale (without compromising price), get more referrals, and have patients spend more on each visit.
