Physicians and other medical professionals today must acquire far more business knowledge than they did even a generation ago. Whether you are directly involved in a medical practice acquisition, sale or merger, or you are a consultant or hospital executive needing to know more about the acquisition process, you must understand how to arrive at a fair valuation, negotiate a sales price and complete a successful deal. To gain this knowledge, you need a comprehensive reference book that explains situations, provides helpful case studies and answers your questions. In Buying, Selling & Merging a Medical Practice, successful medical management consultant Kenneth Hekman has compiled an all encompassing sourcebook that contains the explanation, techniques and proficiencies necessary to send you to the negotiating table well-equipped to complete a successful deal. Hekman covers the entire subject of buying, selling and merging medical practices by presenting its component parts in clear, concise language.
The 1960's ushered in one of the most quickly wide-spread trends up until that time...the American cowboy. This was due in part to the acquisition of television into many of the homes of the baby boomers. All of us who were 'cowboys' during this time still feel a connection with each other. From that vantage point we moved on to the days of go-go boots and from there to being flower children and wearing peace symbols and fringed vests. Our clothing became a way of expressing who we are at an individual level, rather than just an expression of our class or socio-economic status, as had been the case in the past. We enjoyed being able to express both our collective spirit and our individual natures through our clothing choices. Perhaps we haven't always realized the extent to which clothing trends and experiences shape us into the people that we become on the inside. Is it possible that our character and integrity are affected by something as simple as our clothing? It's worth thinking about and remembering those significant clothing experiences along the way.
