#81 12 Things You Must Do To Make 2019 Great

The new year is right around the corner and it’s approaching fast!

As much as you’re probably tired and excited for an extended break (I sure hope you’re taking one), this is not the time to just shut down and shut off.

I’m not saying you can’t take that path but come January, you’ll wish you didn’t.

The new year is an incredible time for growth, with boundless opportunity and excitement. If you don’t use at least some of your free time wisely and plan ahead, you’ll be playing catch up from the start…again! 🙂

As with any extended pause, we can finally free some space in our mind to create and it’s this cyclical process of reflection, contemplation and only then, planning, that yields extraordinary results.

On this Life By Design For Chiropractors podcast we share 12 things you must do to make this upcoming year great.

It’s a mix of actions we’ve already been doing with some ideas we have yet to implement ourselves but think are wonderful concepts to put in play as soon as possible. Read More

#79 Are More New Patients Worth Risking Your License & Reputation?


If you’re a Canadian chiropractor, you likely know about the recent hit piece regarding chiropractic in the Globe and Mail.

It’s just one of many over the past couple decades and it definitely won’t be the last.

What that means to us at Life By Design For Chiropractors, is that lessons can be learned from these articles…lessons that can help us design our practice approach in ways that deliver the impeccable level of care we imagine and keep us from risky behaviour all at the same time.

These are not mutually exclusive ideas.

Many chiropractors think that to see enough new patients we need to litter social media with ads and offers for low price examinations or other hooks to lure potential prospects close enough to snatch them up!

On one hand proponents would say “but they work!” and while I’d agree, I would also add in the caveat… “but at what expense?”

Is a stream of new prospects worth the risk of losing your license? Your reputation?

In this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we explore the article’s tenants and tease out which are completely false and which ones we could actually learn a thing or two about in order to protect us in the future. Read More

#75 The Secret Ingredient For Success That Nobody Talks About

It’s rare to find someone that has worked their tail off (even when doing just about everything else incorrectly) for an extended period of time and not had some level of measurable success.

Hard work is very often THE missing ingredient and in the absence of knowing what to do, can be a replacement until the proper knowledge base is developed.

Now, imagine if you worked ridiculously hard and nailed every requirement for success as well?

That would be the ultimate success formula for every single area of life…

(Time + Consistent Action) to the power of Correct Principles = Extraordinary Results.

As a chiropractor we’re told a successful practice comes down to “telling the story” and “delivering the goods”.

“You too can soon work 1 day and have 500 visit per week practice with only 8 hours.”

What is not often promoted is the incredible amount of effort it takes to truly excel.

The jump from good to great is massive; the gap between great to extraordinary is monumental.

Hmm, that sounds like a lot of work. LOL.

In a profession where good is almost always good enough to not worry about money or other stresses that plague most others, you’re left with a decision…

What does success look like for you?

Is it just getting by or is it leaving a massive impact?

In today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, we share our raw, unedited opinions about the work volume it takes to reach the peak.

Enjoy! Read More

#67 You Need To Live It To Lead It

I’m not sure there could be a more important topic than the one covered on this episode.

It’s the NUMBER ONE character trait I personally see in successful people that is missing in those who struggle.

I’m not just talking about Chiropractors…I’m talking about ALL PEOPLE.

My suggestion is to listen closely to this episode, and if you’ve realized you’re deficient, and take immediate action to start building this trait.

What trait am I pointing out?

Integrity… aka doing what you say you’re going to do!

More specifically carrying out the appropriate action steps with regards to your own lifestyle blueprint.

If you have big plans for your practice and hopefully your life, you know a healthy lifestyle…fuel, training, fitness, sleep, etc. all MUST play a central role in giving you the physical and mental resources for success.

Are you consistently meeting all your requirements? If not, why not?

What is holding you back?

The great news is after 15 years of entrepreneurship I’ve faced many of my own challenges in successfully implementing a blueprint that works and I’ve also brought on a guest who has done the same…

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, myself and Dr. Mike Gibson share our strategies and tactics to help you solve this BIG problem and start living it to lead it. Read More
