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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
