What do you think the answer to the riddle of having doctors care in America is a luxury these days is?
The answer, if you have one of these items pictured above; you must have the other.And without either of them; you can’t have neither of them. woot woot, ain’t she witty. LOL
Folks, one has to laugh, jest, and give a giggle during these treacherous economic times or how else shall we remain sain. I mean, geesh, what do you do when you as a business owner have no health care insurance; much less the ability to offer it to any employees. Realizing that if you get sick, business drops off, and then; poof your company is down the drain and the economy continues to chase it tail.
Early on when the recession first hit many people were still able to use that ol adage about “People are living from pay check to pay check”. Hmp; that’s the good ol days, friend. Today’s cliché looks more like this, “Businesses are living from invoice to invoice and that’s if they don’t have any interruptions; “. God forbid one thing go wrong with your health when you are the sole proprietor and/or CEO girl go Friday or Man on board. Think about it, what would happen if you became ill or something in your health prevented you from doing what you do in your business? Like the shocker I got this past weekend.
Here, again, I know what y’all are going through. That is why I am still out here pounding the pavement looking for resources for business owners and individuals like me, who need help now and again. That’s why I am using the Exceptions Barter Exchange (aka the bank, alternative currency, the latest mechanism to aid businesses before they go out of business) helping them get the tools, services, vendors, and anything else under the sun that they need to do business.
This past week-end, my hanging by a thread, next to front tooth, fell out after my unmanaged thyroid condition had finally taken its toll on the health of my teeth. First thought that came into my head was not OUCH,, it was OMG what am I going to do; I have no health, dental, or vision insurance. My cash flow will surely not support a procedure like what will be needed to correct my issue; what am I gonna do? I thought.
Well, here’s what I am going to do to help myself and other Business Owners get health insurance. For we all know that without health insurance we go down. And if we go down the ship goes down or at least astray.

Let’s say last week you had 5 open slots for dental work that went unused. OK,, remember last week is gone and so is your profit when you were not busy during those five hours. For the sake of this conversation, let’s say each of those appointments cost you on average $200. So the grand total for lost revenue is: $1,000.00 . But, you still have to pay the window washer; your carpet need cleaned, you need a new copier for the front office, your tools need repairs and you also need some new ones. The special light bulbs you have in your exam rooms are going dim. And the list continues of all the stuff you still have to buy in order to operate your practice and keep your business growing.
For a checklist of items you could purchase through Exceptions Barter Exchange for your dental practice download the spreadsheet. I found this little handy dandy pdf “Dental NEW practice items checklist” at : http://www.dentalclinicmanual.com/docs/New_Practice_Checklist.pdf
It list everything under the sun that any one could ever need for their dental practice. Are there any items missing? Let’ me know, we will find it if its out there.
NOTE to self: If the IRS does not care what you call it and they still want income taxes whether its in cash dollars or alternative currency trade dollars; why would you care what’s it called as long as it spends. I t can pay for your over head cost, provide you with free advertising, get you new clients you would not have otherwise known, and most of all lead you to new cash paying clients in the end.
