It's been said there's nothing better than being your own boss. However sometimes the weight of "wearing all the hats" can be emotionally and spiritually draining. So next time things seem a little overwhelming, refer to these five principles every happy business owner lives by.
Ontario's low back pain strategy and how this program can raise the profile of the chiropractic profession will be the topic of the keynote presentation at the upcoming Canadian Chiropractor Business Forum on June 13, 2015, at McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, Ont.
There is no doubt that chiropractors have to constantly balance responsibilities. Not only do we have to be great healers, we need to be effective communicators and marketers, and have the responsibility of doing all the small things necessary to run a business. Having said this, however, the primary focus should always be the delivery of excellent care to the patient in front of you. This is the most fruitful and efficient way to grow your practice.
Businesses need to generate a rhythm in order to generate consistent cash flow. This requires repetition of delivering a quality product in a routine fashion. Interruptions break routine, which promote chaos over order. If you study how the business calendar is designed you can see that when it comes to building momentum to spark growth in our practice, the odds are stacked against us due to frequent changes in routine.
We have all experienced a multitude of changes to the chiropractic industry. Such controversial topics include but are not limited to the amount of integrated practices, insurance premiums and affordable health care. There are many more trends coming that chiropractors should be aware about and it is best to get updates on some of the many changes DCs need to be prepared for.
Canadian Chiropractor Business Forum goes to Vancouver! Make the connection and take your practice to the next level, Saturday, April 25, at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.
I have developed a burning passion to help others in our profession become successful. I now expect more from the academic institutions that house future chiropractors at a time in their careers when they are most fragile. I expect chiropractic schools to be leaders in the profession on all aspects of practice, and I refuse to accept anything less, because leaders not only expect to be successful, they demand 100 per cent from everyone around them.
With the holiday season upon us, many business owners struggle between making time for their family while giving their chiropractic practice or business the attention it needs. The fact is that in most cases, it's the business that wins.
Most chiropractors I interact with share a proactive and preventative approach to health and well-being with their patients.
When employing an associate, most chiropractors realize that in time this associate will leave, go elsewhere or establish his or her own practice.
How many times have you gone into work and felt tired and fatigued? It happens to all of us at some point.
After 12 years in private practice, I decided to turn back the clock and open a satellite clinic to complement my flagship office. This start-up office provides a niche service to patients while expanding awareness of my brand.
