I had a few ideas in my head but of course I had to turn to my old friend Google to get even more inspiration and see if I was on the right track.  I don’t recommend searching for “why people hate chiropractors” unless you need a good cry or want to beat someone up. Turns out, I was barking up the right tree.  Keep on reading to find out why chiropractors give some folks the heebie-jeebies.   ...
Unless you are the only employee in your business, you will eventually run into this issue.  There are times in a business when it would be very difficult to not be excited.  Grand openings, appreciation parties, killer sales months, hitting new landmarks within the company, etc. all help to keep employees soaring high.    But what happens when there is a slow month? What about three slow months in a row?  All...
As I continue to evolve as a business owner, I have said on multiple occasions I wish I was a profiler for the FBI. If you don’t know what a profiler does, they are really good at reading all the little cues someone gives during interactions. All the signs, eye blinking, story telling that someone gives are tell-tale signs. The profiler is really good at assessing their psychological, mental and emotional states of the person sitting in...
As massive corporations continue to grow, it’s sometimes hard to imagine that a small, local business would have the same threats.  In my mind, if I’m going to rob a business wouldn’t I want to target the ones with all the money? I’m not saying small business owners aren’t successful but it’s usually at a different level than a major multi-million/billion dollar enterprise.  I did some...
Have you heard about the Clinic Challenge Experience at Sherman which is designed to help students make the transition from classroom to chiropractic internship? Fifty four interns have just completed the challenge during the spring 2019 quarter. The challenge is a rope course on campus which presents a variety of “challenges by choice” using ropes, pulleys, walls, poles and platforms. Students use problem solving skills and...
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...
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...
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...
