Hi Member,

This week a member of our Community emailed me and explained that after resigning from a long term position, they were struggling with grief and a lack of motivation and spark. They questioned whether they could ever move on from feelings of disillusionment and regain their usual committment and passion for the profession they have loved for so long.

What's your advice? How can this veterinarian move on and grow?

Also this week we send 10th birthday wishes to VetPrac and share information on the VNCA's new Wellness Hub - check out all the details below.

Our aim is to help you - save time, connect & discover!

Enjoy your reading :)

Happy 10th Birthday VetPrac

Our friends at VetPrac celebrated their 10 year anniversary earlier this week.

From an email I received during the week from founder, Dr Ilana Mendels:
"When VetPrac started over 10 years ago, it was a dream to solve a problem and give hope to me and my friends in practice. Disillusioned by the repetitive nature of general practice when your skills plateau, we wanted a way to keep reaching, keep growing. VetPrac was born out of necessity and grew into what you see today because you wanted it."

I've always been a big fan of Ilana's vision for VetPrac. I like the way she does things a little differently and the way that the quality of the training is never compromised.

May the next 10 years be just as inspiring!

Visit the VetPrac website & check out the workshops for the rest of 2018

Why the Word "CHANGE" is so SCARY- And a Suggested CHANGE to that.

By Nancy Friedman (The Telephone Doctor)

This short, sharp blog post suggests a very simple yet effective idea.

Most of your team (and possibly yourself) probably hate the word "change". It can be frightening because of the unknown and uncertainty that can accompany any change.

"But what if you could make the word better?"

"You can - simply replace the word "change" with a more positive, rewarding word:

Just consider the difference between these 2 statements:
"I'd like to make some changes around here!"..and...
"I'd like to make some improvements around here!"

Which one would you prefer?
