LATEST BLOG: 3 Practice Lessons We Can Learn from the New England Patriots

I hope you watched the Super Bowl, because that was seriously the most amazing, unbelievable game I’ve seen in a long time.

And if you didn’t watch it, I’m gonna break down for you the 3 reasons why this game was so amazing.

Hey Pats’ fans, congrats and props to you. Atlanta fans, sorry for the loss, you guys played an outstanding game.

Now just for the record, I’m neutral on this one. I’m from Wisconsin, so I’m a Green Bay Packers girl through and through.

And I’ve gotta admit, I almost stopped watching the game. After the first half, it was looking like a total blow out, but there was a part of me that kept thinking, “Watch...Read More


 
 

Set Practice Resolutions That Stick

Set Practice Resolutions That Stick

I’m super excited to be starting off the New Year with you, and I wanted to kick 2017 off by talking about New Year’s resolutions. This is such an important time of the year for a lot of people where we’re thinking about…

What do you want to achieve in the next year of your practice? What do you want to achieve in the next year of your life?

And the irony is that, for a lot of people, New Year’s resolutions will only last for a couple of weeks. They end up falling to the wayside.

So I want to tackle why resolutions don’t work, and I’m going to give you my 3-step framework that I love to use, so not only am I setting resolutions that actually stick, but actually achieve them and do it in a way that can happen very quickly.

You know I was just in the gym to start the year on a healthy note, and it was completely crowded. I struck up a conversation with one of the managers there, and she said, “in a couple of weeks, it’s going to be completely empty. A lot of people who set the resolution to lose weight or get fit just give up.”

So let’s take a second and think about why...Read More



 
 

Why Gratitude Will Lead to More Success in Your Practice

Why Gratitude Will Lead to More Success in Your Practice

I realize it’s a bit trite to write about thanksgiving at Thanksgiving. We have an actual day set aside here in our country to give thanks and I would venture to say we’ve all gotten pretty good at it on this one day.

We are thankful that mom didn’t burn the turkey, a little less thankful that she tinkered with tradition by using a new gravy recipe, very thankful that Uncle Henry remembered to wear his hearing aids, and most deeply thankful to the great folks at La-z-boy for inventing a chair that lies down.

We are all reasonably thankful on Thanksgiving. But I want to move away from... Read More

Marketing Hacks to Grow your Practice

Marketing is often a HUGE pain point for wellness professionals and ends up at the bottom of their to-do list for these reasons, but it doesn’t have to be this way!

What if there were a marketing strategy for your practice that would... Read More



 
 

Tired of Busywork? Learn the Secrets to Automating your Practice

imagereadblog

I hear it time and time again! Health & wellness professionals constantly complaining about valuable time wasted on the redundant tasks of running their practice.

They tell me how they’re stretched out too thin, doing way too many things at once, and wasting precious time on busywork.

Sadly, they know they’re running things inefficiently, that they’re wasting away valuable time, but they can’t quite figure out what to do.

What's even worse... Read More



 
 

The Real Cost of Burnout

adjusted-blog-page-header

Recently, a comprehensive study was conducted to discover burnout rates among Doctors of Chiropractic. The results were shocking and unprecedented.

48% of the DCs surveyed were undergoing burnout. That’s almost half! In addition, 21% of them reported extreme emotional exhaustion.

These rates are unprecedented to say the least. But that’s not all, it turns out that these burnout rates have been increasing over time. Between 2011 and 2014, the rates had jumped by an average of 10%.

However, the danger of burnout... Read More



 
 

Get Selfish to Serve Patients Better

Get Selfish

Most practices nowadays rely on volume-based incentives focusing on money as their main business factor.

However, the grueling demands of a high-volume practice create intense time and pressure constraints.

Your practice becomes more like a hurried factory desperately churning out dollar-signs (patients) instead of becoming the soothing, relieving, and curing place it should be.

But these constraints also affect YOU, the health professional. You become absorbed in the rat race called running a practice and this results in burnout...Read More



 
 

This One Thing Made Me More Authentic in Practice

FB Ad - Want to Be More Authentic in Practice

Do you feel totally authentic in practice?

If not, what’s holding you back? A boss? A fear? A limiting belief?

I remember feeling completely trapped when in practice. I was working for a boss who was a total KILLJOY. Constantly belittling and criticizing me and my colleagues, and trying to make us into cookie-clutter clones…

…and I spent the first two years feeling nothing like myself.

It affected my success. My patients. And my happiness...Read More

Something interesting happened to some of the best athletes at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

They screwed up, made mistakes, and didn’t quite accomplish everything they wanted.

The media built up their expectations before and during the games. The crowds both cheered and booed them. They shed tears of joy and heartache in their journeys to get to Rio.

They also all walked away....Read More

Build a Practice AROUND Your Lifestyle

FB Ad - Why I Kinda Hate Convention

Back in 2009, I was burned out, broke, and lost my love for practice. After only two years of doing something I thought I would do forever.

Like so many, I fell into a practice situation that is way too common for a lot of doctors out there. High volume, long hours, tons of stress, and a crappy paycheck.

And if that wasn’t enough, I had no life, because I was always in that practice.

It was at that breaking point that I realized something huge. We’re all told this BIG FAT LIE that you’ve gotta work your tail off for the first three years in practice, so you can eventually make money and then finally have a life...Read More
