#67 You Need To Live It To Lead It

I’m not sure there could be a more important topic than the one covered on this episode.

It’s the NUMBER ONE character trait I personally see in successful people that is missing in those who struggle.

I’m not just talking about Chiropractors…I’m talking about ALL PEOPLE.

My suggestion is to listen closely to this episode, and if you’ve realized you’re deficient, and take immediate action to start building this trait.

What trait am I pointing out?

Integrity… aka doing what you say you’re going to do!

More specifically carrying out the appropriate action steps with regards to your own lifestyle blueprint.

If you have big plans for your practice and hopefully your life, you know a healthy lifestyle…fuel, training, fitness, sleep, etc. all MUST play a central role in giving you the physical and mental resources for success.

Are you consistently meeting all your requirements? If not, why not?

What is holding you back?

The great news is after 15 years of entrepreneurship I’ve faced many of my own challenges in successfully implementing a blueprint that works and I’ve also brought on a guest who has done the same…

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors, myself and Dr. Mike Gibson share our strategies and tactics to help you solve this BIG problem and start living it to lead it. Read More

#66 How Chiropractors Should Use Instagram

The marketing landscape is changing rapidly… Thirty years ago it was direct mail, then came email marketing and finally social media has taken the world by storm… Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

We’ve repeatedly made it known that while the tactics and best places to grab attention may change, marketing principles do not.

There will never be a time when positioning, differentiation, segmentation, knowing your target market or follow-up are not at the centerpiece of your marketing plan.

Yet, that hasn’t stopped chiropractors from chasing the shiny penny from one social media platform the next using the same old marketing tactics (and some new sleazy ones too).

It’s not that social media can’t be a valuable asset in your marketing arsenal..at this point in the game, it should be a foundational component.

That said, there’s a way to use social media – a method to the madness that can yield some insanely incredible results for the chiropractor.

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we’re joined by LBDFC Director Dr. Kreso Jug to discuss his success using Instagram in his practice.

#65 The Chiropractor’s Curse

Don’t be frightened…“The Chiropractor’s Curse” is not one that needs Harry Potter to break the spell, it’s something you can tackle yourself if you know what to look out for.

Our profession loves the next shinny penny and I mean LOVES it.

We’re constantly in the search for it and when we find it, we snatch it up like it’s gold…until it’s magic wears off and the search for a new one ensues.

This cyclical activity that dominates the marketing radar for most chiropractors keeps them attentive to new ad tactics popping up on Facebook, new ways to bot social media followers, click-bait, bait and switch tactics…essentially anything that looks and appears new and claims to deliver 100’s of new patients.

Aside from the obvious fact that even if it did work, the majority could never process that many new cases properly. It also soaks up the time and energy that could be allocated towards building a lifetime strategy and follow up systems to support it.

In this episode we give you tools to avoid this trap and build a strategy that yields big ROI over the long haul. Read More

#64 Handling Objections Starts With A Line In The Sand

Handling objections is generally one of the least liked components of a successful practice.

I say successful, because without handling objections, your chance or growing and developing the practice of your dreams is nil. Zero. Zilch.

Love it or hate it, that’s just the way it is… and the sooner you realize it the sooner your practice can move the needle.

The question is how do you best handle the types of objections you get in practice? Whether it’s on day 2 during the agreement, daily visits or it’s that no one wants to come to your workshops, this is an essential skill that you MUST master!

As much as there are tactical steps and conversation frameworks that would benefit you to know, it’s one, single piece that outperforms all the rest…

Surprise, surprise, it’s mindset. However, the mindset I discuss on today’s episode is not the head-space you typically hear about…

It’s not “Fake it til you make it” or some variation.

It’s building YOUR foundation by developing your self-esteem and knowing where you draw your line in the sand.

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors I’m joined by Dr. Kreso Jug as we tackle this extremely important starting point for addressing objections in your practice.
