Welcome to AMG, an organization I birthed to support the administrative and educational needs of the healthcare industry. At AMG, we are here to connect our resources and expertise with your healthcare needs.
I am Tamesia Alston, Founder & CEO of Alston-Adun Management Group. I created the ‘Ask A Healthcare Professional’ Facebook Group after months of emails and phone calls from other healthcare professionals. The topics ranged from getting into the field to earning a 6 figure income as a coding professional. ••
The emails and phone calls allowed God to show me a void in the industry that needed to be filled. Through this platform I would like to give healthcare professionals - or those interested in the field - access to a group whereby we discuss all topics healthcare. People are gonna throw any questions out for anyone to respond to. Billing, coding, auditing, compliance, finding a job, resume writing, marketing, legal issues, transitioning to healthcare, various career options, etc. ••
Hit a roadblock in your career and not certain about your next step? AMG has you covered. We have a team of healthcare administrators and clinical professionals awaiting your questions via our Facebook group, 'Ask A Healthcare Professional.’ Know that you are not alone. Even if you simply have a billing, coding or other question, ask away. (Just nothing that is warranted by an office visit.) I truly believe that we can all win together and mentor those who are following in our footsteps. ••
I love all of you. Thank you for continued support! *Note: feel free to post ads marketing your businesses in the group. We have to support one another ✊🏽 #IssaMovement#AMG#healthcare#professional#management#coding#coderlife#cpc#medical#nurse#pa#np#dr#dental#hygiene#pharmacy#life#happiness#peace#balance#perspective#mentor#motivation#success#support#mompreneur#entrepreneur#entrepreneurmindset
🗣BREAK-THROUGH’S START WITH REALIZING EVERYTHING IS YOUR CHOICE.
You choose to win just like you choose to lose.
Choosing to workout or choosing to sit around.
Choosing to track your diet or choosing to just guess.
Choosing to get more sleep or choosing Netflix.
Choosing to practice your morning routine or choosing to sleep in.
Choosing to meditate or choosing to skip it.
Choosing to show love and appreciation or choosing not to.
Choosing to network or choosing to stay in your bubble.
Choosing to invest in your business or choosing to stay stagnant.
Choosing to educate yourself or choosing to stay close minded.
This applies across the board in our lives and as much as it’s the reason seeing results can be easy, it’s the exact reason why success is so hard.
Choose to find a path, choose to take action, and choose to stay consistent.
🥉But it’s just as simple to not choose any of that, because it can all be uncomfortable.
What’s great about this... is that it IS choice. So if you want it, really... it’s yours.

After playing to the very end of two sets of dead strings, my new set is finally here!!!!! When I started violin, I was honestly never positive how committed I would be to it. I also didn't expect to go through strings very quickly as a beginner. So I never bought in to keeping a full new set of spares on hand.
But I have found myself very much in love with the instrument. I also find that I play hard and wear through a set as fast as any serious player. So that will be changing soon. In a month or two, I plan to get a whole new set of strings to have on-hand for when these wear out in addition to a spare E string. In the meantime, I am fully in love with my new set of Il Cannone Medium strings by @larsenstrings.
This is my second set of Il Cannone but my first playing on a set entirely of medium tension strings, and I am so excited to have them installed fresh on my English violin made in the 1790's by Adam Martin in Hermitage Bridge, London. They already sound incredible, and they will sound even better once broken in! New, fresh videos of my progress and what I've been working on will be coming very soon, in a few days, once these have broken in a bit. Thank you, Larsen Strings!!!!! 💜
My favorite thing as a trained musician in other disciplines about not having a teacher on the violin is that I can address my needs myself as they arise. I am constantly learning to listen to my body, to my fingers, and to my instincts. No one is rushing me. No one is making me doubt myself. No one is pushing me to do things at their behest. Each decision I make in my training is a personal accomplishment I can take ownership of and responsibility for.
Double stopping is viewed broadly as a pretty advanced technique. It is treated as a “next-step” to be taken once a violinist has mastered playing a single line in tune across multiple positions and strings. Isn't it fair to say it would be an ideal accomplishment to be able to play single-line passages and pieces well before incorporating double stopping, which would overcomplicate your accuracies?
These views are fatally flawed in not recognizing that playing an instrument is a gestalt. Limiting oneself to overly-isolated studies allows the fingers to find coordinations that may work for the limited scope of material at-hand but may be practicing deficiency as pertains to the overall goals of the instrument.
The known should always be an indicator of other unknown factors. In double stopping, the known is that it imposes much stricter requirements on the player for accurate intonation. Double stopping is merciless in this. If one of the two notes is a hair off, you are immediately assaulted by beats in the sound.
The unknown is what is most dangerous. What deficiencies are being retained in the finger coordinations by not working with double stopping? What minute graduations in finger arch and the frame of the hand are being unrefined by never fingering more than one string at once? What lack of flexibility and muscular static are being strengthened by never going beyond one finger at a time? I don't know. And I refuse to be defeated by the unknown. I look forward to digging into Ševčík Opus 9!!!!!
Even on their worst days, my beloved Larsen's Il Cannone strings are truly spectacular. On the 24th, I'm ordering a new set, a full set of medium tension strings. But I simply could not continue to abide the Vision G, D, and A with Obligato E that came with my new instrument. The D string majorly lacked character, and the A string was quite sharp, a combination that gave a nasty timbre shift between strings.
The Visions and gold-plated, Obligato E were selected to provide brightness to what was thought to be a dark-sounding instrument. But all it did was bottleneck the overtones from fully coming through. This instrument jumped out at me for having a much fuller set of overtones than the others in the shop, which is likely why it was perceived as dark. But now that it's mine, not being compared to other violins, I'm starting to hear the needs of the instrument itself.
Switching them out for my old set of Il Cannone from my old violin with soloist G and E strings with medium D and A was a huge improvement. The D and A in particularly are so much more full of life. I do think brighter or higher tension strings bottleneck my instrument's sound. The higher-tension G and E work, but I do think medium will be way better on those as well. I can't wait to hear what a fresh, new set of medium-tension Il Cannone strings will sound like (especially after the 3ish-week break-in period)! This line of strings has become a huge obsession of mine, and I love the concept behind the sound. I feel like @larsenstrings's vision for them truly achieves something special.
