Welcome to 2022!
Can you believe it!?! We’re already entering a new year full of possibilities. One of the goals we typically may set for ourselves or family in this season of fresh change revolves around our finances.
Over the holiday’s the amount of advertisements trying to sell you and I on yet one more subscription was too many to count. What I also noticed was that one company (well, there’s actually many, but this one caught my eye) that is trying to help people “manage their subscriptions” was TrueBill.com. [Note: They are not a sponsor of our podcast or any of our publications nor a paid endorsement at the time of the airing of this episode].
But with a new year and a fresh look at our finances we all might be thinking about certain subscriptions in our lives that we’ve signed up for and just don’t use any more. Years ago I called this a “subscription purge” and was criticized for even bringing up the topic of unwanted subscriptions and that there would come a time each year or by each individual or household that we would go through our finances and purge and cancel unwanted subscriptions in our lives. https://soundcloud.com/thedocpreneur/tet-sub-purg-20220103-1546?si=aaa98dcb610a41998f18df8b4c842ef5&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing
One subscription that I would not want to cancel personally would be the subscription I pay to my Physician whom I adore. These are called Concierge Medicine and Direct Primary Care Doctors. They operate on a subscription (eg. annual, quarterly or monthly billing cycles) and have a unique healthcare delivery subscription billing and service offering. If you don’t know much about them, there are a lot of resources out there but we recommend www.ConciergeMedicineToday.org and www.DirectPrimaryCare.com for starters.
Additionally, we found these resources on the topic of subscriptions and cancelling the subscriptions in our lives helpful as reference articles. We included the links below if you’d like to learn more.
