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. Oh how I wish!  The truth is many business owners still may have sleepless nights even when things are humming...
80 hours a week, 14 days in a row..leads me to a very hard learned lesson.  What is the lesson? If you are a manager, general manager or business owner who develops, hires and/or trains employees the lesson is always be recruiting . When you’re not always on the hunt for new talent that’s when the old talent is going to leave you hanging. Have you ever noticed that when you don’t have extra money sitting in the...
The Next Evolution of Employment for Chiropractors     I was perusing through Chiropractic Economics and came across this article entitled “Chiropractic on the job: Worksites clinics attract more DC’s.”  This is a review/ summary of that article from issue #15: September 21, 2018.   Are DC’s who have owned and operated their own clinics for 10+ years really throwing in the...
I think one of the most powerful things about owning a business is the ability to leverage making money without performing some or all of the service. This amazing gift requires one monumental thing…a great team. The hiring process can prove to be one of the more difficult tasks when it comes to running a successful business.  Unless you have worked for the government interrogating people it’s not easy to ask the right...
In my recent quest to investigate the ups and downs of practicing chiropractic around the world, it would be a shame to not put Australia on the list.   I know for Americans, the idea of spending a couple of weeks vacationing in Australia would be nothing short of a dream come true.  From the beaches, the food, kangaroos, touring Sydney, I have never heard of a bad trip to Australia (at least among my circle of friends). The...
As I was perusing through the different job opportunities on chirorecruit.com I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the Philippines.  The only experience I ever had was as a kid.  My first stepfather was a marine and he was stationed in southern California. I remember our next door neighbors were another military family and the wife was Filipino.  At the time, this was not so uncommon.  Between my...
In the last blog, the discussion was about how countries around the world view chiropractic. If you currently live in the states, UK, Canada or Australia chiropractic is clearly defined and regulated.  This is not the case in many countries.  I commandeered the legend below from Part 1 of this blog series to catch us all up to speed.  Below the legend describes countries from “a-d” in how chiropractic is viewed...
  Part 1   I think there comes a point in everyone’s life where we are open to the possibility of leaving behind the familiar and ushering in the different aspects of a new country, customs and maybe new language.  Opening your eyes to a unique landscape filled with people who have musculoskeletal complaints common to all humans and unusual afflictions that many of us have only read about in textbooks. ...
If you are reading this blog, there is a good chance you are a doctor, you’re going to be a doctor or you’re thinking about being one.   The ability to really help people is an amazing gift and opportunity.  The dark side to drive, ambition and getting through all that schooling is usually (but not always) fueled by a very “type A” go-getter kind of personality.   If that is true for you,...
I’m 31 years old; you would think that my millennial instincts would naturally kick in here.  Nope. I have my hand in three franchise kickboxing studios and my own chiropractic office.  Facebook without consulting me changed the rules and now traffic to my websites, which generated leads, has slowed way down.  What does that mean? May was a terrible sales month across the board.  It used to be easy.  We would...
We live in an age where information comes to us in small pieces, like 10 second videos, sound bytes, word bytes, tweets, and pictures.  Whether you are into the social media sphere or you still prefer your reading materials printed as opposed to on a tablet, it doesn’t matter.  If you want a great employee, you are going to need a few things in your job description to win over the roving eyes of young chiropractors....
Finishing up a Doctrine of Chiropractic Degree is no small feat. I think the age-old adage “blood, sweat and tears” could not be more fitting for the years spent in chiropractic school.  I remember entering into my last year excited to be working on patients in the clinic but at the same time, I had this gnawing feeling in my belly knowing that all too soon it would be time to start looking for a job.  Depending on how...
