Prior to Epic, I started a practice and for the first year was failing. I had no direction, no idea how to communicate value to patients, no plan to attract patients and had zero income. I was so low personally, I would take “sick days, I would sleep to avoid the pain of a miserable practice, I would avoid speaking with family and friends because of how I felt about my life and I would actually hope that patients would come into the office because I didn’t want them to see how bad things really were.
Then I spoke with Krysti Wick. She her own journey with practice and life that I could relate to and she shared with me where she was only a few short years ago. Her story was very similar to mine. I remember telling her that I really hated practicing with idea of “needing” scripts” and this “do it my way” style of practice. I wanted to be authentic, I wanted to be me…and I felt that in that moment she and Epic could help me find out what that would look like, in practice but more importantly in my life as a father and husband.
In one short year, I went from seeing 35 visits per week, never being able to buy a Christmas gift for my son, never taking a real vacation to finally providing for my family, to taking family vacations, living congruently with my life and my family’s life, sharing my growth and experience at Epic Impact with hundreds of other chiropractors and having a record WEEK and DAY right before our Christmas break (slow time of the year, right?)
If you would have told me that 2016 would be have been that different, I wouldn’t have believed you. But it truly was. My mindset, my communication, my vision, my expectations for myself and my practice have all been grown because of what Epic has provided and because I made the CHOICE to BE Epic and do the work.
If this feels familiar, take my words to heart…it can happen to you too.
In one short year, my life has changed drastically, I am a better human, father, husband, son, friend and chiropractor because of Epic and the Epic community. I am truly grateful for how much Epic has guided my success in practice but more importantly in my LIFE!
