Facebook can either be an amazing ally in the advertisement of your Chiropractic Practice or it can be allusive, frustrating and a tangle of algorithms.  Previously, FB was a simple and relatively effective means of getting the good word out about your business but now with over 2 billion consumers using the platform, ads have to be flashy, concise & compelling.  It’s stiff competition out there but using some of these...
As with 95% of the blogs I write, the inspiration for them come from my own experiences and mishaps inside my own businesses.  Once again, life has given me another topic to discuss.   Wikipedia says, “ Onboarding , also known as organizational socialization, refers to the mechanism through which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors in order to become effective organizational members and...
It’s that time of year again to break out the resolutions to make 2019 the best year ever!   It’s finally going to be the year I lose “X” amount of pounds, pay off debt or take that once in a lifetime trip.  Heck, I like all of those and I would think most people living in the US or the UK would feel similarly.  Here’s the deal resolutions don’t work, and neither do goals unless you...

Think about it, patients who come in before they have a problem?! What a novel idea ( smirk) .  No insurance companies, excessive forms to fill out or fighting tooth and nail to help patients understand the value and importance of regular adjustments which, all sounds...
In chiropractic school, it was not uncommon for classmates to start to pair off with each other. If you have any kind of Christian background than yes I am talking in the “biblical sense.”  Kidding aside, it does makes sense.  We spent every waking moment either in class, studying together outside of class or imbibing with each other on the weekends to forget the first, two scenarios.  Interestingly enough, I would...
If you have ever gotten to the point in business where you are more owner than operator its unique.  Your friends and family think you sit around all day sipping cocktails and watching soap operas or the better scenario (and my personal favorite) is sitting on the beach all day, sipping cocktails and counting money.
