If you are going to design your business – what is structure? Structure is the legal framework you give your business. It is like a skeleton supporting all your bones and organs ,so you can move forward with the design
To achieve this structure, you decide with your business attorney whether you are going to form a partnership, be a solo practitioner or a corporation. Once your aging life or geriatric care management agency has a legal structure then you can move on to the design of your business.
Now you the leader or in a partnership or corporations, leaders, decide what are the goals of your business. The example would be to serve the population of Dallas Texas, who are in the top 10% economically, over 75 and need help with at least three activities of living. Another goal might be to have at least 15 cases by month 9 to break even and take a salary.
The next step is to decide how you are going to achieve these goals. Are you going to bill a certain amount an hour and do a financial forecast to make sure you reach you goal of breaking even and taking a salary by month nine? Are you going to offer 5 key products that your ideal client needs to attract those clients in Dallas in the top10%?
So you have added muscle and blood flow to your skeleton, to map out how you will achieve your objectives- why you started this business in the first place.
