After graduating from Chiropractic College, I worked as an associate for approximately five years (three years longer than I would have liked but I did not have a choice). I left my position as an associate and moved into an office share with another chiropractor for several years rather than open my own practice (clearly out of fear of failure and lack of vision/dream). I eventually outgrew the office with the other chiropractor and opened my own practice in 2011. Within a short period of time, I discovered that I lacked the guidance, direction and systems in order to grow and develop a chiropractic practice on my own and make it what I always envisioned and dreamed it could be.
It became clear to me that I was in need of professional coaching in order to reach the goals that I set for myself and so the search for a coach began. After attending a number of different seminars, I remember sitting in my first Integrity seminar and saying to myself “Why have I waited so long and wasted so much time”. Over the years, I have listened to Ryan tell stories about his signup meetings. When I think back to mine, it must have been one of the easiest ever. He said “sign here”, I said “ok” and so it began. It has been five years that have changed my life, not just professionally but personally as well.
Right from the start, it was clear to me that I had been thinking small and that I was now playing in the big leagues. Just the exercise of developing my five year plan showed me how small I had been thinking. I dove right in, listening to every audio and putting the procedures in place as quickly as I could and without even trying my practice began to change. Everything was now uniform, from the way the phone was answered to touring our office to report of findings. There was no more discrepancy between individual staff and everything became seamless. Everyone was on the same page and the differences were immediate. The practice has continued to steadily grow as we have implemented and followed the Integrity Systems.
It is now time to take the next step and convert this practice which has primarily been a Health Insurance/Personal Injury/ Worker’s Compensation Practice into a Wellness Based Practice. I have no doubt that by continuing to use the Integrity System we are destined for success.
There is no doubt in my mind that without Integrity, I would not be where I am today. I would still be that small practice, inching along day by day with no vision, no direction and no dream for the future. Where as today, I know exactly where I want to go, how I am going to get there and I have every tool at my disposal to make it happen and I am a better doctor for it. All I have to do is get out there and do it because there is no limit to what I can accomplish.
I will forever be grateful to Integrity for what it has done not only for my practice but in turn for my family as I am now on the path to living the life I always dreamed of having.
