I’ve said this before, but it comes down to time blocking. Just as an example, you have tech free Fridays and block that time so no appointments creep in, shut down all electronics after market close, turn OFF phone, and do whatever is healthy and makes you happy: golf, bike with the kiddos, nice dinner with your partner, work on that half marathon. The sky is the limit, and you know what? It’s very freeing to know you’re business is still there the next day.

We will start the FET process in early Jan. The Doctor’s office (SGF) is saying since insurance needs to be re-verified and they need to submit authorization again, we have to pay the FET cost upfront and then later get it reimbursed from insurance. Is this reasonable? I don’t understand why they cannot submit the pre-authorization now. Thanks again.
