How productive is productive?

I'm not even going to bother with any numbers or goals today. This past week was packed full and I can't think straight anymore.

On Tuesday, my local hometown paper ran the article on me and my book. The next morning, my very first patient told me he had seen the article and he was so excited for me. He couldn't wait to get the book. It kind of went on like that all day.

Then Thursday morning I had my interview - live - on our local TV station's morning show. Luckily none of my patients had seen it, but I had told enough co-workers about it, so the ones who had seen it told me what a good job I had done. And the rest of my co-workers spent half the morning trying to find it on the internet.

It finally showed up on WJFW's website this morning. We'll see how fleeting my five minutes of fame is.

Lastly on Saturday, I attended an educational seminar for my career as a certified medical assistant. I was getting low on books, so only had eleven to take with. I sold out - I wasn't trying but my medical assistant friends from around the state had all heard about it on Facebook or from each other. I have two people which I owe books to, as soon as I get my order the first of the week.

With all of that, I guess it was a very productive week.

Over 130 medical assistants from across the state converged on Eau Claire for a day long educational seminar. The three women in the front row all bought books.
