Sandy Chin is a successful financial planner who lives in New York City. During her career, she has helped thousands of clients reach their financial goals. She recently offered business advice to young entrepreneurs in her area.
One of the most common issues that business owners have is raising capital. Few banks are willing to lend money to new business owners at a reasonable interest rate. Instead, entrepreneurs are forced to sell equity in their company for capital.
To make things worse, many young business owners borrow way too much money at first. High debt levels can cause numerous financial issues in the future. Some people end up closing their business and still have thousands of dollars in debt. Sandy recommends that new business owners limit the amount of money they borrow.
Financial planning is a critical aspect of business success. Some people never create a financial plan for their company. Working with a financial planner is a proven way to get quality financial advice. All business owners should have a detailed plan for the coming years. Tight expense control is vital when starting a company.
Another issue for business owners is getting burned out. Some people work way too many hours each week trying to get a company started. As a result, their health begins to deteriorate. When Sandy founded her financial planning business, she eventually developed health problems due to her hectic schedule. She now spends adequate time each week relaxing and exercising.
Advertising is essential for a new company. Some entrepreneurs wrongly assume that customers will flock to a new product or service. Instead, many business owners spend the vast majority of their time looking for new customers. An effective marketing strategy is essential for anyone who wants to manage a thriving company.

According to a research, a third of Americans go to emergency rooms when looking for medical care even if their needs don’t warranty the services of an emergency department. That has been the trend going decades back. Dr. Eric Forsthoefel has confirmed the fears about the state of emergency rooms in Florida.
Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is a renowned critical care physician with over 6 years of experience. The critical medicine specialist graduated with a medical degree from University of Louisville School of Medicine. In an interview, he shaded more light on the situation.
What is Dr. Eric Forsthoefel’s take on the problem?
He has witnessed a lot of such cases and he has attributed it to barriers to access to primary care. The doctors are obligated to attend to all the patients regardless of their condition. According to him, doctors work hard to meet the healthcare demands of people. However, he laments about the resources of emergency care rooms being limited and therefore, attending to non-urgent cases reduces their resources and capability to handle critical and acute situations.
Why do people opt for emergency rooms for non-urgent care?
A study showed that many educated and well-off people choose to go to emergency rooms for non-urgent care because they think it will take them too long to get an appointment with their care provider. Others prefer the rooms because of ER’s convenience or their incapability to secure the services of a primary care provider. Other studies reveals that the youth and men are likely to go to emergency rooms for a non-emergency issue.
All these studies corresponds with Dr. Forsthoefel’s assessment.
Actionable solutions to the problem
Addressing the issues that make people go to emergency rooms for non-emergency issues is a good start to finding a lasting solution. Critical medicine doctors such as Dr. Forsthoefel feel that if the primary care providers improve their service delivery, it will go a long way into easing the situation in the emergency rooms. They can do that by reducing waiting time and improving on their availability.
Carefully crafted research, studies and data have pointed to making of primary care and other options a convenient place to get medical care as an effective way of reducing significantly the cases of people visiting ERs for non-urgent care.

As per Forbes, he has been working as the host of American Idol for the whole duration of the series. The show started in 2002, lasted until 2016, took a hiatus in 2017 and resumed in 2018. The series is still pretty hot, but it doesn’t really seem nearly as hot as it was in the early to mid-2000s. The show kind of ran out of steam after so many years—popularity-wise. Time went on and other things came up in the media and in society. However, it is still a pretty entertaining show for people who choose to watch it. Compared to the mid-2000s, probably a lot less people would know who the winner of the show is.
