#98 How To Be More Resilient In Practice

Have you had enough?

Your staff is annoying you and their workload is falling on your plate…

Patients just don’t “get it” and you’re beyond irritated with them…

Your partner or spouse doesn’t understand your situation and why you’re so stressed…

The bank won’t give you the extra credit to make that practice change you know will make all the difference…

The endless list goes on and on… and guess what?

It always will.

That’s the nature of being a business owner and entrepreneur. It comes with the job.

You may be wondering if you’re cut out for leading a chiropractic practice and and rightfully so… it’s an important question to answer!

On the flip side, once you’ve answered it and you’re ready to move forward, the solution to your challenge doesn’t come in reducing the amount of “stuff” you’ll need to deal with (that never changes, it just becomes different stuff) it comes from handling that “stuff” better and easier.

There’s many more but these failures and the lessons learned (and still learning) will give you solace if you’re making your own and in some cases, help you bypass the failure but still receive the lesson 🙂 Read More

#95 Your Biggest Barrier To A Massive Return On Investment

Pricing, practice visits, retention, expenses… are ALL practice levers with significant power to increase or abolish your bottom line.

Yet, pulling these levers in your favour depends deeply on ONE character trait.

This single character trait you’ll find in the vast majority of the “ultra-successful” entrepreneurs, athletes and yes, chiropractors.

What is it?

Risk tolerance.

No I’m not talking about jurisprudence, about screening assessments or note taking… the type of risk tolerance we care about for today’s episode is taking calculated action.

The reason it’s such an important discussion is because at it’s core are two pieces that are often avoided:

Risk and action.

The point of this podcast is to give you a deeper appreciation for why you should consider improving your risk tolerance and help you overcome the anxiety that might be keeping you from pulling the trigger on to-do’s that would have a massive impact on your Return On Investment in all areas of life.
