FTCA Podcast #22 - Jon Morrison - Storybrand

Too many business leaders are missing opportunities because they struggle to talk about what they do in a way that connects with potential clients. Whether it is In person, online, or in a presentation - they want to make dynamic connections with people to gain more leads and grow their business but feel they are missing out on what could be done.

Jon started a company to business leaders talk about what they do. Using the power of story, Jon has a proven framework that captures attention and generates business.  Jon is the Founder and CEO of Get Clear Consulting, a Vancouver Canada-based marketing company, specializing in leveraging the power of story.

FTCA - It is time to Storybrand!

FTCA Podcast #20 - Marc Bronson DC - Evidence Based Chiropractors

The Marc Bronson podcast episode has been removed.  I would refer you to the iCARE Podcast episode with myself and Marc, which covers similar topics and is very well done.

In this episode I chat with Marc Bronson DC, who created the facebook group Evidence Based Chiropractors.  Marc was also a co-guest with me in a two part iCARE Podcast that you should also listen to.  Marc's specialty is evidence, research, and bringing rational thought to the chiropractic profession.


FTCA Podcast #17 - Brett Winchester DC

Technicalities abound in this podcast!!  And they are all the host's fault.  Brett stopped his truck to do "podcasts from a truck", yet it was I that had mic problems, and had part of the podcast drop out.  And worst of all, I didn't even appropriately introduce our most esteemed guest!  We WILL have him back on to go further in depth.  

But for now, let us properly introduce you to Brett Winchester DC:

Dr. Brett Winchester lectures throughout the world, teaching his functional approach to patient care.  Combining manual therapy, including joint manipulation and neuromuscular stabilization, with therapeutic exercise, Dr. Winchester effectively treats functional pathologies and acts as a catalyst for patients working to enhance their performance.

Dr. Winchester is the founder of Winchester Spine & Sport located outside 

St. Louis, Missouri.  His current appointments include:

•St. Louis Cardinals Team Chiropractor

•Advanced biomechanics course instructor at Logan College of Chiropractic

•Instructor and board member for the Motion Palpation Institute

•Chiropractic Rehabilitation Diplomate instructor 

•Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization instructor trained by Pavel Kolar

•Gestalt Performance (owner)

Dr. Winchester’s published research includes topics such as offering a multidisciplinary approach for treatment of the pregnant population and foot dysfunction.  Various chiropractic journals have also featured Dr. Winchester for his patient-driven treatment model.  He also has authored two chapters for textbooks.

Dr. Winchester enjoys treating professional and collegiate athletes and has gained a reputation for his sports medicine background.  His expertise has placed him at the forefront of the ulnar collateral ligament rupture epidemic in professional baseball pitchers, providing insights into causation and effective treatment protocols.  Still, his passion remains with diagnosing and treating the ailments of a diverse patient population with conservative-based protocols.  

FTCA Podcast #16 - Professor Stu McGill - Legends Series

Stu McGill.  Nothing else to say.

This interview was career fulfilling for me, as professor McGill has served as one of the fathers I never had.

As recommended in this interview, be sure you pick up copies of Professor McGill's book "Back Mechanic" by the case, and make them available to your patients.  All of Professor McGill's books should be part of your library:

- Low Back Disorders (or as I mis-named "low back pain" in the podcast)
- Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance
- Back Mechanic
- Gift of Injury:  The Strength Athlete's Guide to Recovering From Back Injury and Winning Again

All of Professor McGill's books and more can be found at:  http://www.backfitpro.com

Enjoy our conversation!

FTCA Podcast #15 - Brandie Nemchenko DC - Experience Chiropractic

Brandie and I had a great time talking about nearly every aspect of chiropractic practice.  We "went there" a few times, and there were no holds barred.  Brandie is a great example of the fact that women can be a great force in the profession, and quite successful, without having to resort to the nonsense and "party line" that it is assumed women must fall into to succeed in our trade.  She's tough, evidence informed, and passionate.  Powerful stuff.


FTCA Podcast #14 - Travis Hornsby - Studentloanplanner.com

When I was told that Travis wanted to be on the podcast to talk about student loans, I didn't even think twice.  "Yes!"  Such a crucial topic for everyone involved in the profession.  From the schools down to the students and their families and the public at large.  It effects EVERYONE!  

We all could use some better financial management and planning in our lives.  We couldn't help but get off into a financial planning tangent.  Managing your student loans is such a huge part of this.  It doesn't seem like such a big deal until you blink, and 10 years of practice have passed you by (it goes by REAL fast) and you've been paying this whole time and your principle balance hasn't moved an inch.  Ouch.  Travis is here to help you plan ahead.

In addition, Travis is having a webinar in just a few days (Tuesday, April 10, 5pm EST, 2pm PST), so you will want to get registered for that.  The link is https://www.studentloanplanner.com/chirowebinar/ 

Don't miss it!
