Oprah Winfrey (and the billion-dollar media brand known only as “Oprah,”) has relied on a personal life coach named Martha Beck for 25 years. Oprah credits Beck’s coaching as one of the reasons she’s been able to reach such heights while also staying on track and achieving happiness in her personal life.
In his prime, Tiger Woods was the not only the best golfer in the world but on track to become one of the all-time greats and shatter every golfing record.

The fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, goes to a sports psychologist coach just to hone the mental side of his game, in hopes that an investment in coaching can help optimize his performance and shave just a microsecond off of his record times.
Tennis great Andre Agassi was #126 in the world and floundering before he hired a new coach, who ignited his passion and whipped his butt into shape to see him rise to #1 ranking and multiple Grand Slam titles.
The mega-band Metallica was rapidly going down the road to a breakup and probable end of their careers, like so many other bands. That is until they hired a coach, Phil Towle, that kept them together, getting along and having fun again, and making some of the best music of their lives.
While Lebron James’ team of coaches, mentors, and advisors helped him not only become the best player in basketball but land a billion-dollar-plus lifetime endorsement deal with Nike. In fact, Lebron often goes to Warren Buffet for financial advice and coaching!
Self-help guru Tony Robbins is a world-renowned coach, working with Leonardo DiCaprio while he filmed the Oscar-winning The Revenant, President Bill Clinton while he was in office and had to make crucial pressurized decisions, and thousands of top business people, celebrities, and athletes. But has had many mentors and coaches, himself, along the way.
Speaking of which, there isn’t a Fortune 500 executive or top producing salesperson in America who doesn’t regular enlist the help of a coach, advisor, or mentor.
In fact, no matter who you are, you can benefit from coaching.
That means you, too, chiropractors!
So why haven’t you enlisted the help of a coach to help you optimize your business yet?
Let me guess, the excuses may range from “I’m too busy,” to “I’m a little skeptical,” to “I don’t want to pay for coaching while I’m struggling with my business.” (I won’t point out that not having a good coach is probably the reason you ARE struggling!)
Or if your practice is doing pretty well right now and you’re making good money, your excuse might be that you don’t need a coach.
I’m sure Oprah, Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt, Andre Agassi, Metallica, Lebron James, Tony Robbins, Warren Buffet, and every Fortune 500 CEO has pondered these exact same excuses.
But no matter who you are and where you are in life, you can be better with the help of coaching.
If you’re a newly graduated chiropractor or in business for less than two years, take an honest look at the statistics. The number of chiropractors that end up going out of business or making a near-minimum wage salary at the start of their careers is shocking. Congrats on your getting your nicely framed degree but now your real education begins – but the good news is that you and only you control your destiny if you enlist a coach.
And if your practice is doing OK now, imagine what you could do if we unlocked your potential by utilizing coaching? Do you want to be a starter or an all-star?
Envision your realistic ceiling for your business’s success. What does it look like? Now ball that up and throw it in the trash, because that’s just a start – not even close to what you’re capable of.
To be clear, coaching isn’t a substitute for hard work and commitment. It’s not a magic formula that launches you to the top overnight. What coaching will do is part the clouds so you finally have a clear view of the horizon. For the first time, you’ll see clearly where you want to go, how to get there, and what pitfalls and rest stops are in front of you along the way.
You can be the best chiropractor in the world and still go out of business because you’re not also a great entrepreneur. Negotiating a lease, hiring CAs and staff, cash flow management, marketing for new clients, implementing systems and organizational policies - and keeping your head on straight so you still love what you do and feel lucky every morning – are just a few of the hundreds of tasks you’ll have to deal with as a chiropractor.
