Tom Burden: There are plenty of teaming opportunities, but we prefer to prime. While we may miss some opportunities, we like the control that goes with priming. Both Bill and I have been doing this in a fairly specialized field for over twenty years, and we think we know what works and what doesn't.
WashingtonExec: How is mobility changing the role of the healthcare industry?
Tom Burden: Because of the ever-growing demand for all types of healthcare workers, today's healthcare workers are essentially at full employment. Other than filling entry positions for new grads, any employer hiring for a healthcare position usually has to lure a candidate away from another employer. Frequently, this occurs by increased compensation, thereby contributing to a very mobile workforce.
WashingtonExec: What's the greatest risk an entrepreneur can take?
Tom Burden: To me, the greatest risk, after a lifetime of working for someone else, was deciding to forego the financial security that went with being an employee and to commit to being my own boss - entirely responsible for my own success or failure. For instance making five payrolls before getting paid was certainly an eye-opener. Now, I say, "Why didn't I start sooner?"
WashingtonExec: What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Tom Burden: In 1973, as a young enlisted Navy hospital corpsman and college drop-out with a wife and child, I was grateful to have a steady paycheck and thought I'd be lucky to just keep climbing the enlisted ranks - not much more. However, my boss, a mid-grade officer who himself had been a prior enlisted man, took me aside one day, and basically told me I was wasting my time and talents. He advised me to get busy, get back into college, and go after a commission through the Navy's In-service Procurement Program. Something clicked - that was the kick in the rear I needed to see myself as a success. Three years later my wife and skipper pinned my ensign shoulder boards on.
WashingtonExec: What is something most people might not know about you?
Tom Burden: I'd rather be doing photography, but I can't make it pay enough.
