Student DCAs I am writing this, I have a little kink in my neck. The cause? A student adjusted me the other day. I always have some students or interns—or both—hanging around the clinic. I never say no to a student who wants to shadow or intern with me. Does it help my practice? No, it’s more of a distraction than a help, as even unpaid interns end up causing more work than they save. One summer intern took down our internet access for a day.
Personal Growth The MOO factor is about the “margin of opportunity” that exists between where you are today and where you can be. It’s about the time you have left to accomplish your goals and fulfill your dreams. It’s your chance to win. You have short-term MOO of one day, one week, and one month, to longer-term MOO of months, years and a legacy. This is your time to be your best and maximize your potential. This period of time and what you accomplish in it is all about you and how you show up every day.
Practice Central You’ve probably traversed at least one intersection where you’re unsure how people navigate it safely. Most of the people make it through, sometimes there’s a bump or two, and sometimes you pray for safety and then are grateful for PIP insurance. In a figurative sense, those same intersections exist in your practice. You might not be sure how people do it. You might not be sure how to navigate through the place where your message got misunderstood, when it seemed so clear to you.

Student DC The chiropractic profession has grown exponentially. With that growth has come more practitioners and an ever-changing health care marketplace. From a public perspective, locating a doctor of chiropractic isn’t difficult. The problem finding one who is consistent in his or her delivery, shows up and, most importantly, stays in business.
