The office I run and become a "model" office of how to do and what to do along with recognition for this as well. I feel I manage the office well and am proud of my employees.

The lack of TV and radio advertising to help build business. The constant struggle to find good Care Providers to place in Senior's homes. Having to find Care Providers to fill in on cases over weekends, so the lack of professionalism with the independent contractors hired. Stress level is also very high worrying about keeping cases staffed and bringing in new cases.
