Success Is What You Make It

Success doesn’t happen automatically. You can’t just buy a service or join an organization, sit back and relax, and expect the money and fame to roll in without doing any work!

But hard work on its own isn’t enough, either. No amount of sweat, toil, and hustle is going to help you reach your goals if you don’t have the tools, resources, and strategies that will allow you to work efficiently. Ambition and work ethic are great, but if you don’t know how to get where you want to go, you end up wasting a lot of energy and spinning your wheels.


Success is what you make it, and it requires both hard work and a good roadmap. At the AAPPM, our job is to provide you with the training, the knowledge, the tools, the resources, and the support of your colleagues necessary to take your practice from struggling to surging.

• Do you need training for your staff? The AAPPM is the exclusive provider of the CMOM-Pod certification program specifically for executive podiatry office managers, along with corporate discounts, 24/7 access to a secure library of training documents and critical forms and materials, and training opportunities for both desk staff and medical assistants.

• Do you need a mentor you can rely on as you encounter day-to-day challenges? The AAPPM has partnered with the Virtual Practice Management Institute to provide live mentoring and coaching and a web-based curriculum to our members at reduced cost, 365 days per year.

• What are your struggle points? Marketing? Coding? Billing? Human resources? Compliance? Legal? All these topics and more are covered in detailed workshops at our regular conferences, as well as in our information library and curriculum. Even better, you can connect and network with colleagues and experts who can share their experiences and give you advice for your direct questions.

Now, we’ll repeat it one more time: success is what you make it. We can give you the tools and the resources. We can give you the roadmap and point you in the right direction. But you must take advantage of them! Success is an attainable goal, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you, but it’s not going to come automatically.

And the good news? It works. Members who take advantage of the resources and opportunities available to them make, on average, up to 20.5% more than non-member podiatrists. If you’re willing to learn, grown, and put in the work, your results could be even higher!

If you want to grow your practice and fill your waiting room with patients, and you’re ready to do what it takes, give us a call at (517) 484-1930, or apply for membership online. Let’s build a thriving practice together!
