- Gerard’s WHY: Had exercise-induced asthma after football injury, checked out chiropractic to be involved in sports. Never had to use his inhaler.
- ChiroMission: serving in a region where the people do not have care and spread the message of chiropractic. 3 trips a year at least.
- Dreamed of making the biggest practice in Minnesota. Goal of retention.
- Patient experience: Knowing names, how they were referred, having a good feeling about the practice. “If we can get to the cause, you are in the right place.”
- By the time patients walk in, they have already “checked you out” and made up their minds.
- 90% cash practice ? Cash vs. Insurance ? Level of commitment is different.
- High volume practice means short visit times.
- Referrals are high proportion of marketing strategies. Social media and websites, Talks and workshops, screenings.
- Google reviews: retention and attraction tool, patients have eye-opening moment when they actually write it down and share it.
- “Motel vs Hilton” means giving an above-average service.
- Good For You Productions puts together the “experience” videos.
- Going door-to-door made him aware of his commitment to success. Get out of your comfort zone.
- Actionable content for new docs: Have a plan, visit many people 90 days in advance of opening your practice.
- Actionable content for established: Reignite the passion! Get out there and get out of your tescomfort zone!
- Lesson learned: Becoming a leader of a team, realizing there is more than just you involved.
- Success = stories of amazing people that are not famous but they are accomplishing goals in their terms. “Unsung heroes”
- Daily habits: Prayer, Affirmations, Green Books, exercise.
- Book: Start with WHY by Simon Sinek
