1. YOU – How to stay RSU by bringing the absolute best version of yourself to life every day regardless of the circumstances.

2. YOUR CUSTOMERS – How to stay RSU by providing the kind of service that makes your patients your greatest marketing strategy.
In this section you will learn how to create such an exceptionally positive and happy experience for your patients that they will become fiercely loyal fans for life, and scream your praises to anyone who will listen. You will also learn:
· Three human commonalities you MUST know before you ever interact with any patient.
· The #1 thing people will ALWAYS remember about their experience with you.

3. YOUR CHALLENGES – How to stay RSU up by creatively solving problems.
