We are a mobile society, aren’t we? “They” say (yes, I often wonder who “they” are!) that Americans move an average of 7 times in their adult lifetimes. Personally I’ve skewed the averages myself, having lived in 9 states, with 19 moves.
I know moving!
One of the big tasks we have to manage when we move is to change addresses on everything from bank accounts and bills to magazine subscriptions to holiday greeting cards.
That done, most of us think – whew! – there’s no need to change our cell / mobile phone numbers! Keeping the same number means we can stay in touch by voice and text without skipping a beat. Right?
Because, if you own a practice, you probably can’t afford a mismatch between your old number and your new location.
