Be The Best That You Can Be - Dr. Nick Laurie

March 14, 2018

Dr. Nick Laurie says that doing a lot of personal development, going to many seminars as you can, and having a mentor can teach you the quickest way to grow your practice and reach your target without sacrificing your family and health.

Nick has been in practice for close to 18 years. He graduated from NZCC where he was in their 2nd class. He also came up with Fiji on Fire, where chiropractors have the opportunity to learn from ‘Chiropractic masters’ through power sessions and hanging out.

Nick shares how he got hung up on the value of achievement and got focused on the numbers which made him felt isolated from his family and friends. He did things to make up with it, but didn’t realize it was putting his health at risk.

Nick had a heart attack, and when he recovered, the things he learned from coaching and self-development programs have helped him to rebuild himself and his relationship with the people around him. Get all the resources for this episode and listen to more at http://www.drdonmacdonald.com/

Dealing with Feedbacks - Dr. Paul McCrossin

March 7, 2018

Not all people who go to chiropractic clinics understand what chiropractic is all about and its true message. Thus, for people in practice, it is vital to be able to understand people's health views and let go of those who don’t accept your message.

On today’s episode, we are here with Dr. Paul McCrossin. He has been in practice for 23 years, very much involved in the United Chiropractic Association, and helps other chiropractors practice safely and ethically. He talks about the reasons why people complain and how to handle it. For him, it’s a feedback when people complain.

Paul says that miscommunication is one of the reasons why there’s a disconnection between the chiropractor and the practice member. People drop out of care because they feel they’re not being listened to or the chiropractor doesn’t care. When you communicate where they’re at, you would be on the same page making them feel connected to you. Get all the resources for this episode and listen to more at http://www.drdonmacdonald.com/

Making Wise Investments - Dr. Ernest Li

March 2, 2018

Being with like-minded people and having a mentor can definitely up your game. Dr. Ernest Li invested his money, time, and effort attending seminars, which made him realized what his true value is.

On today’s episode, we are with my mastermind buddy, Dr. Ernest Li. He is a chiropractor, and a businessman who owns real estates and a pub.

Dr. Li wouldn't have discovered chiropractic unless he hadn’t gone into his fifth car accident. The accidents he had caused him pain that made it tough for him to focus on school. He tried everything else and ended up seeing a chiropractor as his last resort. After three adjustments, he felt better than a year and a half of physiotherapy and massage combined.

Like other chiropractors, Dr. Li also overdid the practice, got burned out, worked his butt off serving his patients, which took him away from family time. That was the time when he thought that there must be easier ways to make money other than being a chiropractor. When he started investing his money in various things, he realized it isn’t easy and that no matter what business you’re in, you got to work hard.

HRV University for Chiropractors - Dr. David Fletcher

February 28, 2018

People want to know more about Heart Rate Variability and how to use that application in order to deepen conversations with practice members.

On today's episode, we have Dr. David Fletcher to discuss HRV and to help us understand it in the Chiropractic setting. Also, he shares how to describe HRV in a simplistic model to your practice member when you’re doing it.

How chiropractic differently impacts the HRV compared to sleeping or exercising is that it engages specific parasympathetic feeds, arousing the body’s innate responsiveness, and giving it an energetic boost so it can keep the momentum going.

Create The Shift Towards Vitalistic Chiropractic - Dr. Marc Hudson

February 21, 2018

Some institutions have an oppressive environment where students are forbidden from being exposed to Vitalistic Chiropractic. They’re in a culture where they are afraid of making adjustments and of saying anything.

On this episode, we are here with Dr. Marc Hudson. He graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in 1994. He, together with his wife, Lynn, created ChiroEurope. They also founded Barcelona Chiropractic College, where they were able to raise two and a half million euros to establish it.

Dr. Hudson says that you can’t be a Vitalistic Chiropractor when you practice in fear. It is because fear keeps you away from your practice or your dreams. He shares how chiropractors can get over their fears for them to achieve success. Moreover, Dr. Hudson also talks about ChiroEurope and how unique it is in the chiropractic world right now.

Connect With Yourself And Others - Dr. Nicole Lederman

February 14, 2018

Dr. Nicole Lederman knew she wanted to be a doctor and help people at an early age. She graduated from CMCC in 2000 and then worked as a locum for almost three years in Ontario. When she moved to Texas together with her husband, she ended up teaching in the clinic and on the academic side of Parker. After 11 years of teaching, she realized it was time for her and her family to come back to Canada to start a new phase of life.

On this episode, Dr. Lederman talks about how her 18 years in practice have been like. As a woman who is less than five-foot tall, she emphasizes that size doesn't matter. In fact, she shares that small female chiropractors are highly specific when making the adjustments.

As a working mom, she also experienced being burned out and not being her vibrant, healthy self which taught her that it isn't true that you can have balance. What’s true is you can choose what you want to do. Moreover, being herself, doing self-care, and connecting with others is the biggest things that have helped her over the time.

Breaking The Underdog Curse Podcast

February 7, 2018

On today’s episode, we are going to switch the tables to learn more about the ultimate underdog, Dr. Don MacDonald. Don shares how his last 18 years of being in chiropractic have been like.
When Don was starting out his practice, he apparently loved chiropractic and the potential of what it could do for people, and then, it became not that for him. During the first seven years of his practice, everything seems like such a price for him that he lost any vision of what the promise was.

Don was able to keep the practice at a good volume and still did a lot of things for the profession, but it was at a huge detriment to his health. He had gone through a couple of issues and trauma that not only burned him out mentally but also his health. He felt broken, hurt, and exhausted all the time.

What Don realized was he was not doing what he needed to do to take care of himself. What he did is he focused on his body and on few things that he knew are going to make the most significant difference in his practice. Aside from perseverance, another key to his success is his wife, Brandi, who supports him of what he does. Get all the resources for this episode and listen to more at http://www.drdonmacdonald.com/
