#104 Could You Afford Your Chiropractic Care?

Could you afford your chiropractic care?

That’s a question I was once asked by a speaker from the stage and unfortunately the answer was “no”.

I say unfortunately, not because I couldn’t afford my chiropractic care if I were the prospect, but because the thought that I couldn’t afford it prompted me to start worrying that…

1. Others couldn’t afford chiropractic care either and worse…

2. It was my responsibility to make sure that they could.

Like most responsibilities in my life, I took this one seriously and if you’ve listened to this podcast the rest was history.

Years of good intentioned but very bad business decisions led to low revenues, non existent profits and more stress than I ever could have imagined I’d be able to handle.

Fast forward a decade (almost two) and exposure to the right people with correct thinking… life and practice are much better.

The goal of today’s podcast is to help you avoid the massive pitfall that destroyed my practice before it ever started and kept me fighting for my practice life for years.

#98 How To Be More Resilient In Practice

Have you had enough?

Your staff is annoying you and their workload is falling on your plate…

Patients just don’t “get it” and you’re beyond irritated with them…

Your partner or spouse doesn’t understand your situation and why you’re so stressed…

The bank won’t give you the extra credit to make that practice change you know will make all the difference…

The endless list goes on and on… and guess what?

It always will.

That’s the nature of being a business owner and entrepreneur. It comes with the job.

You may be wondering if you’re cut out for leading a chiropractic practice and and rightfully so… it’s an important question to answer!

On the flip side, once you’ve answered it and you’re ready to move forward, the solution to your challenge doesn’t come in reducing the amount of “stuff” you’ll need to deal with (that never changes, it just becomes different stuff) it comes from handling that “stuff” better and easier.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we talk about exactly that… How to Be More Resilient in Practice.

#97 Lessons From 12 Months of Practice Failures

Failure isn’t inherently bad.

We typically associate failure as a set back, something to be avoided at all costs and even an embarrassment.

It’s our emotional affiliation with failure that can keep us from pushing the boundaries where incredible growth happens.

Need not fret… as failure, learning the lessons from failure and taking the next series of actions are trademarks of entrepreneurship and make up a fundamental cycle for development in nearly all successful businesses.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we share just some our failures over the past 12 months.

There’s many more but these failures and the lessons learned (and still learning) will give you solace if you’re making your own and in some cases, help you bypass the failure but still receive the lesson 🙂 Read More

#89 Ten Habits Guaranteed To Increase Your Profitability

Have you ever wondered how can some people be so ridiculously productive?

It’s seems nearly impossible that they can accomplish all they do in such short time frames and still be happy, energized and excited to tackle more.

That was until I met Dr. Mike Gibson.

In the beginning I thought he was more alien than entrepreneur but once he revealed his secret ways and took me under his wing like a young Padawan…it all became clear.

It wasn’t a trick, there were no smoke and mirrors. In fact, I was kind of sad it was a simple system built on principles and habits that when applied consistently, yielded NASA level results.

It was sad for me because I realized Mike didn’t have special powers and my lack of success in the realm of productivity was, well, my own darn fault.

Fast forward 5 years later and I’m happy to say that more than any other area of growth, focusing on my productivity has, without exaggeration, revolutionized my life.

This includes more profitability, happiness and impact.

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, Mike and I cover our top 10 productivity habits. Read More
