#57 How To Juggle Practice & Motherhood with Dr. Rachelle Jug

Thank you very much for all the amazing and positive feedback for The Life By Design For Chiropractors Podcast.

It’s been an overwhelming and rewarding experience as well a wonderful opportunity to share our best content with you.

That said, one of the questions we receive from time to time is “what about us?”

That “us” is women.

The challenges, struggles and difficulties that women face in chiropractic practice are unique and, since I’m not a woman, I will never fully appreciate or have direct experience in solving.

The good news is right here at Life By Design, we have an extraordinary woman!

Our guest today is Life By Design Director, Dr. Rachelle Jug.

Since the birth of her two beautiful boys Ari and Vedran, Rachelle had decided her top priority was spending as much time as possible with them.

Once Ari was 3 and Vedran 1, she began to consider stepping back in to practice.

The decision was a difficult one, but it’s turned out to be incredible!

#55 Be Like Alex: Grow Your Practice 144% In 9 Months

One of the absolute best parts of my “job” is working with chiropractors to help grow themselves and in turn, grow their businesses and leave a much bigger legacy than they had ever expected.

BUT, I don’t love working with every chiropractor (no offense)…

What really gets me excited is to partner with driven, ambitious and hard working docs who are willing to put in the effort AND do the long work in order to get results. 

I’m energized every time I get off a call with a doctor who is taking full responsibility for their success and only sees me as an assistant NOT the primary cause of their outcomes (good or bad).

One of those chiropractors is Dr. Alex Ritza.

Alex had followed Life By Design For Chiropractors for a few years prior to working with our team. He consumed the free content, gathered up piles of value (and implemented what he could) until he reached the point where he knew the next step was a more intensive relationship and what he hoped would be an extremely fruitful one.

His situation is not unlike many of our listeners, and as such, I know you’ll get value from this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors. Read More

#53 Is Scope Expansion Good For Your Practice?

Drug prescription rights, blood-work requisitions, diagnostic ultrasound, minor surgery? 

Scope expansion has either happened in your jurisdiction, it’s happening or it will very likely happen.

Your solution…get ready.

How in the world do you get ready?

You begin by asking the fundamental question – is it good for your practice?

Once you answer that single question, everything else will follow…

If you don’t you’ll be subject to consequences that you will not like.

#49 Is Chiropractic BS?

You’ve probably read this article or at minimum seen it posted on various Facebook groups followed by streams of commentary.

Chiropractic is BS.

Now, you’ve been told to look away, don’t draw attention to the article, do not comment on it or “share” it…

For many of those reasons, I agree. There’s nothing worth starting an online debate about. It’s a recycle of the same old s&*#.

That said, I do believe there is value in using the article for our own education and personal development.

Much of what the author says is built on straw men, cherry picking, appeals to authority and ad hominem attacks. There’s a clear misunderstanding, misinterpretation of information or a blatant attempt to just leave out some of context.

At first read, the scathing commentary about Chiropractic would make nearly any chiropractor defensive…the author is blasting the profession saying it’s BS, it’s been linked to injuries, stokes and death…

But the deeper you go, the more you move past the easily dismantled arguments and find a source of truth. The likes of which we need to accept and begin to address.

If you find yourself struggling for certainty, feeling defensive every time an article blasting chiropractic is posted or anytime someone you know has a negative comment about your profession…this episode is definitely for you.

Knowing in your mind what is correct gives you the ability to live in reality, accept your shortcomings and grind ahead solving the problems that keep you from an extraordinary practice and out of the trenches battling your (and other people’s) demons.
