#85 Maximizing Profitability In Part-Time Practice

Are you considering reducing your practice hours to enhance your life enjoyment, personal free time, or to spend more of those precious moments with your family?

One likely concern may be that working less will mean earning less and that’s just not something you want or you can’t have, given your current expenses.

How do we solve this dilemma?

Is working 60 hours a week in practice and on your business the only solution?

Ask Dr. Rachelle Vanderheyden-Jug.

Rachelle is a LBD Director, a mom, a wife and a chiropractor.

Over the past year she’s dramatically changed her model and approach to practice and the results have been, well…, exceptional!

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors I interview Rachelle about the challenges and solutions to maximizing profits during her switch into part-time practice. Read More

#84 What I Learned From Replacing 5 Team Members

No one is going to debate whether having a great team is important to your success…

Heck, we believe it’s one of the 4 requirements for a successful practice (along with systems, communication and leadership).

What happens when you think everything is in place and you can just let one of the requirements, like team, take a backseat?

It’s the same thing that happens when fitness, fuel or the brain-body connection doesn’t get fulfilled…you fail.

In one case it’s your health and performance that will suffer, in the other it’s your practice and business that will begin to fall apart.

That’s what started to happen when I shifted my attention elsewhere without ensuring this key requirement was being nurtured. Lesson learned!

On this episode I share my story about the past 6 months at The Life By Design Centre during which we changed 6 of 16 team members and took a deep introspective look at our hiring, on-boarding and training systems.

#83 Flipping the Switch From Good to Great with Dr. Steven Gall

I’ve known Dr. Steven Gall for close to 10 years.

I’ve personally witnessed and had a ring side seat for many of the challenges, frustrations, hesitations, failures and now, I’m beyond ecstatic to say… successes, that Steven has experienced over his career.

In so many ways, he is the avatar for the majority of good chiropractors who in their mind want to practice in a 3rd paradigm model, but struggle to make it a successful reality.

You know deep down your practice could be better, much better.

You know “some” of the tools and tactics to make it happen.

You even have the willingness to work hard.

But you keep getting in your own way.

Sound familiar?

On today’s episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors we meet with Dr. Steven Gall from Lindenridge Family Chiropractic in Winnipeg, Canada.

#82 Are You Making These Mistakes?

As you scroll through your news feed, skim your newest 100 emails or get lost spiraling through Instagram, this is your lifeline…

The HEADLINE.

A show stopping statement, a message that sparks curiosity or even a graphic that simply shocks you.

In each instance, your mindless consumption of information comes to a complete stop and you need to know more.

That’s the purpose of the headline!

To stop the consumer and get them to pay attention to YOU in a sea of noise and clutter.

Your business is just one of millions and as a chiropractor, it’s highly likely it’s one they are NOT searching for…at least not yet.

On this episode of Life By Design For Chiropractors I’m joined by our marketing pro, Dr. Michael Gibson, and we go granular on headlines.

We often discuss very high level ideas and concepts as they relate to your success in a Retention Based Practice but today we get into the nitty gritty of headlines.

Are you making these headline mistakes? Read More
