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...
Has the “man” got you down and now you ready to serve justice by being the “man or woman” yourself? I’m only kidding but has the entrepreneur itch seized it’s grip on you?  Are you tired of not running the show, being told when to show up and how it’s done?    Maybe you are one of those fiscally responsible folks who has been hoarding your paychecks under your bed waiting for...
Have you been posting your resume here, there and everywhere with no luck? I recently discovered that resume writing is a true art form and a matter to be taken very seriously.  In today’s job market where having a four year degree sometimes only gets you a barista position at Starbucks it’s imperative that your CV and/or resume is  glistening with professionalism, expertise and an easy to read format to find your...
Article Review from Dynamic Chiropractic Vol 36, #11 I think deep down, it’s a secret wish of all chiropractors to have a wellness based practice. 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 like...
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. 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...
