Part of marketing your practice is telling your story to the people you are trying to reach so they feel like they know you before they ever come through the doors.

Business leaders young and old face the same problem — how to form a solid team that will work hard to promote the business’s success. Whether it’s a new business or an established one, the people you recruit will be crucial to your survival.
