“From a Skinny, Shy, Cross-Eyed Boy with Scoliosis to Creating One of the Most Successful Chiropractic Practices!”
As a six-year-old, I remember every time I talked to my someone, they would turn around or look to the side to see if I was talking to someone else. I had suffered from “lazy eye,” but worse, I felt disconnected with the world around me. I was ridiculed in class and made fun of. For something I did not even have control over. My caring parents tried to help. They worked hard and saved thousands of dollars to get my eyes corrected by surgery. The result. My eyes straightened, and I thought life would be great after that…only we did not know. The eye “correction” was performed by cutting the normal muscles to become as weak as the weak muscles. Well, that created new problems resulting in my spine twisting and developing a scoliosis. Weak, scared, and alone. That were my regular thoughts and emotional state at that painful time.
“Our Struggles can form the seeds of our Purpose.”
Then on that one day everything shifted. My dad asked his chiropractor, Dr. Elliott, if he may be able to help his son. Dr. Elliott evaluated my spine, sat close to me, looked me in the eyes and with his positive loving energy gave me hope. He proceeded to not only care for my back, but he cared for my mind and spirit. He took me under his wings and shared with me principles of healing and success. At 9 years old, I made the decision to become a chiropractor, just like Dr. Elliott.
Fast forward, I studied hard, worked in his office in high school, attended undergraduate college followed by chiropractic college, worked for great physicians until the one day I opened my own practice almost 20 years after making my decision to become a chiropractor. My practice was contingent upon my SBA loan approved which happened on that fateful day for our country- September 11, 2001. That’s right, on the day we were brutally attacked on American soil, my practice was born. Now with $250,000 in debt, I finally had the opportunity to start my practice. But was anyone going to come? Fear was at an all-time high.
Thank God that throughout my painful history and the journey to pursue my life’s passion and purpose I had studied and gained many life skills to successfully navigate the chaos. After one year, I had created one of the fastest growing practices in the country. From that time up until no, we have continued to serve a new patient every hour in our practice, caring for almost 20,000 folks, and I have delivered over 250,000 adjustments.

I was only able to reach all those people in my community by leveraging my strengths, shattering limiting beliefs, and finding my purpose. Even with all of that, I had to learn how to assemble the right people by connecting with masters both inside and outside of my profession. I have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars and hours upon hours studying success, business, and health principles to nail down my systems. I even became a certified professional executive coach.
I leveraged all these skills to coach my patients and my team. I trained over 25 other physicians and 100 support team members in processes I developed and refined. Other people around me noticed. After enough people around me asked for help in their business- most outside of chiropractic, I decided to help coach them on growing their company to make it as healthy as mine.
Although incredibly fulfilling, this type of 1-1 coaching took precious time away from my young family. I wanted to be the positive light of encouragement that Dr. Elliott and my parents were to me. That is when I started writing books, creating online courses, and speaking even more to audiences. I had so much to share that I had to develop these new strategies to help the masses achieve not only healthy bodies, but also healthy lives. Lives where they could achieve The Synergy Life- where everything all seems to work even better together! Great professional lives, amazing marriages, connected family, abundant finances, lives on purpose leveraging strengths, all while have vibrant health. It is possible. I made it my mission to help those around me achieve their best health and life ever. A Synergy Life.
