This podcast is not just about real estate. It’s about living life on your terms. And this week Dr. Pete Angerilli shares how he’s doing exactly that.
He started his career as a Peel Police Officer but decided to make a change into Chiropractic and we walk through how he made the move. We also chat about why we need everyone to live life on their terms and eventually transition into some Chiropractic discussion.
Hey everyone, it’s Tom Karadza. And listen, the reason we named this podcast the your life your term show is because it’s not always about real estate. We’re really about living life on your terms. And that’s what this episode is about. We brought back Dr. Pete to talk about his story, how he transitioned from a police officer and appeal to a chiropractor. So it’s half a discussion about living life on your terms. And we kind of go all over the map in that discussion. And then we do talk about some chiropractic stuff and my kind of recent experiences and what I’ve been through in the last few months. And you know how I’ve used chiropractic in that whole bit. So just know that the reason this isn’t all about real estate is really, we believe in using real estate as a vehicle to truly live life on our terms. It’s an amazing financial asset that can really produce some rewards either cash flow rewards, or long term equity rewards that really can set us up nice financially, to live life on our own terms. And because that’s what we’re all doing, we like to have other episodes, we’re talking about things about people who are living life on their terms and sometimes that means bringing on a chiropractor and Talking about their journey and sharing their stories. So that’s why we have Dr. Pete back on. It was a really fun talk on this episode with him. We’re all over the map. And sometimes those are the ones I enjoy the most. So I just want to give that little preamble so that you know, if you’re new listening to this podcast as to why it’s not just always about real estate that would make me go crazy, even though we absolutely love real estate for what it is. And we actually have some really good real estate episodes coming up. I’m flooding my mind. I’m just thinking about interest rates. I have an obsession with interest rates in this country. The Bank of Canada is meeting today and I don’t think they did anything I have to check. Anyway, my mind just raced off into to a side tangent there. So hopefully you enjoyed this episode. And listen, if you are listening to this and you do want some real estate specific updates, there is something that’s always about real estate. It’s our Rockstar minutes on our YouTube channel. You can go to youtube.com forward slash Rockstar inner circle, hit subscribe on there, and you will always get our weekly Rockstar minutes Those are always about real estate specifically, we’re always trying to share some comments this week, we actually put up some charts on the long term historical price prices of us properties and compared long history, long term historical rent. And the reason we did that comparing prices to rent is we wanted to see during the crisis of 2007 and eight, when property prices in America came down on average about 20 25% in some areas, much more some areas like 60% what happened to rent and the reason we want to study that is for us here in Canada, if there was ever a correction, we want to know what would happen to rent. So that’s what we did in those. This week’s particular Rockstar minute you can get all our Rockstar firstname.lastname@example.org.

Are you ready to live life on your terms?
Is it time did take charge, real estate, business building the economy, health and nutrition and more.
It’s the your life your term show
with Tom and Nick Karadza. Are you ready? Let’s go.
We are live. And Nick, can you hear me? No, I’m just joking. Nick’s not even here so he totally can hear me. The reason I’m saying that you don’t even know this is something completely ridiculous that when Nick and I are on a podcast together, I asked him when we kick off, can you hear me? And I think it comes from early on. We had a little kerfuffle on one of them where his audio wasn’t working or his mic, so I always just check with him like, Hey, can you hear me? And
does that sound intro now is that well,
it’s accidentally become the intro that’s getting a little ridiculous, but I’m still enjoying myself with it. That’s where that comes from butter onto serious business. So Dr. Pete is here with us. I you don’t know I’m about to tell you this, but you’re definitely one of the most. I don’t wouldn’t say controversial guests that we have on this podcast. But I get the most interesting feedback about you. And I totally haven’t prepared you for this. Because it’s funny from people in the community, the chiropractic community, they love when you’re on, because I get feedback saying, Oh, my gosh, you know, bring him back on. He’s doing a good job articulating a lot of the things that we believe in, I’m sure everybody has different opinions slightly on the way they do their practice and stuff. And then other people who are outside of the chiropractic community and maybe don’t go to a chiropractor. Give me feedback around the along the lines of, I’m not really sure what to make of him. I don’t know what to make of chiropractors. I really can’t believe you would have him on, isn’t it a real estate podcast? I get like, you’re if for some reason you are just a bit of a lightning rod when it was a good way. It’s a good thing. It’s a good thing. Okay. It’s a positive, positive and binary Want to start with that? I want to start with, you know, we help people with real estate here to live life on their terms. That’s our idea. And a lot of people that we work with want to quit their jobs. A lot of people we work with change careers. There’s a couple people that we know right now in their late 40s, doing complete career change, just starting off a brand new career. And that can be a little bit intimidating. And I just want to ask you, you were a was it Opie police officer?
No, I was actually with no,
no, no. Peel Peel Regional Peel Regional. Yeah,
you were appeal. cop?
Yes. I just can’t see you pulling me. I don’t I can’t see it either.
Okay, so much. So I was you want to talk about this a little bit? How did you? How did you go into become and I know you’re not prepared for this? I know. You thought we were going to be talking about some No, we’ll get there. Yeah, I’ll get there. But yeah, because I think it could be really enlightening for a whole bunch of people. Okay, how did you make that transition? What was the thought process because you obviously want become a police officer.
Well, let me tell the story. It’s not too long but so I finished my undergrad at University of Guelph. And I had, I was I thought, you know, I had thought that I had seen a chiropractor at that point a little bit, and I thought, okay, maybe I think that’s going to be something that I want to do be a chiropractor I applied to I had my dream back then was to live in California. So I applied to this school in California. And I got in, and then I was like, I was talking to my parents, and they’re like, Oh, it’s a lot of money. It’s in the US, like, are you sure going to be able to, you know, for chiropractic school and follow through with it, and I kind of I didn’t go and I had a job when I was in university. I was I had a couple different jobs, but one of my jobs was I don’t know if you know, this autopsy assistant. I don’t know if I told you that. So that’s like, somebody I know.
You were crazy. Yeah, it’s really weird. Yeah.
So what happened was, I got I was working at a local hospital and they needed Someone to do this like, it’s not like our super big hospital. So they might have like, one or two autopsies, if you’re listening you, everybody watches, whatever today CSI or like, somebody dies and they don’t know the cause of death. So they do a post mortem, the M exam and the assistant at least at the hospitals I worked at was you Well, I in university I carried this is getting data here for me like a pager a pager. Oh, yeah.
So the pager meant that
he was very ironic because a pager is like for emergencies and what’s the, the person’s already passed? So you can’t really it’s not really an emergency but so they would, they would page me and I would go to my old Motorola had a cell phone to write and I would call and it’s okay. You know, doctor wants to meet yet tomorrow. 9am so I have to go like an hour early. Take the body or the freezer, put it on the autopsy table, get all the instruments ready. And then basically once I got competent, the doctor would just say okay, go and I would start dissecting And making notes and he would be standing there and then
I passed out in like grade nine science cut yeah frog it’s
not for and I was telling I was talking to a patient about it I would definitely not be able to do it now but back then I was interested in health and anatomy and life and death and all these things and so it was very interest was allowed me to over look the you know, the awful parts of that experience
and it wasn’t as an autopsy only done when the the reason or of death of the passing the death I guess yeah, isn’t known correct. Was that always down? Or is that like your family asked for it?
So every we got into our we’re off. So every jurisdiction is different. I believe in Ontario. It’s a every death has to be death certificate is signed by coroner. That’s a medical doctor who attends at the scene of a death. So somebody dies in hospital with cancer, heart attack or whatever the cause of death is Known so usually there’s no post mortem exam. But let’s say you know somebody dies at home alone or they live alone and then they pass away or there’s obviously like, you know, the you know, homicide, car accidents, other accidents those end up becoming post mortem exam so the so that a pathologist does a report and makes their findings on what the cause of death is and and then that sort of got as close I know why that person died. Yeah. So good. So good. So the reason I so the, I guess the point of the story is I was doing that job and I started meeting police officers who had been, they would sometimes come if there’s like a car accident or something they’d have to come in and, you know, ask questions and stuff. So I met some one of them I became friends with and started to work out with and he took me on a ride along and he was OBP he was Wellington OBP which is outside of gwelf. And he said, you know, you know you might like this, it’s you know, you need to I went for a ride along And it seemed kind of cool. So I was like, What the heck, I’ll apply. And I did, actually, again, to keep the story short, I first got hired by golf, but I ended up appeal. And I did that for a couple years. And right away, I knew it wasn’t for me.
And so what was the moment? Oh, there’s a
let me think I
I can’t think of the moment. I’m sorry. That’s a good question. But it was I’ll tell you, it was shiftwork. It was actually, you know, I can probably, he’s probably think of a moment. It was it’s a corporate entity. So you think of policing but it’s like you work in a big company. And you work with all these different people. So some of them are colleagues on your level. Some of them are supervisors. And I learned I started to see really early Okay, you got to like be friends with this person. If you want to go up in the ranks or like a lot of stuff that I had no idea it was really surprised political, very political. So I thought that I gotta deal with I don’t love shiftwork. I was not healthy at that time. But if any patients listening, they got my email. That’s my email. The intro email I send is that I got motto when I was first on policing. Right? So then and the irony again also ironic was I was like, I don’t want to be a chiropractor because it’s too boring and policing. It would be exciting, right? But a lot of it was like, you know, you’re driving around and you just driving around for going on. So it was kind of boring at times. There were a few exciting moments and I had a few a few lucky you know, arrests to chase anyone down through
dark alleys on them.
Yes. No way. I did a few not a lot of times, but that happens. Yeah, I took some big I got a big bust of like, I think crack cocaine on one did you night shift? Yeah.
Oh my gosh, this is so totally lucky. Like I didn’t
there was no, like nomads detective like like I pulled someone over for a traffic stop and the guy was really antsy and And then he jumped out of his vehicle and ran. And I was like, well, that’s not good. So I had to chase him and then some other officers came to the vehicle and they found all these all these drugs that this guy had in his vehicle. So it was like so I got a reputation as being like, Oh, he’s so lucky. Like another time was like, it was caribana weekend, and I’m sitting in my cruiser at a shopping plaza in Mississauga. And over the radio comes you know, a cab driver just got robbed at knifepoint suspects are blah, blah, blah. And I’m like sitting there and the guy walking across the parking lot looks like
is the guy. I jumped out and said, Hey, and he didn’t rise. He didn’t worry. I said can I talked to you? And it was the guy so they’re like, how did you do that? I’m like, I didn’t do anything. I just was sitting there should
have stayed in the blue. Yeah, you just yeah, you were solving crimes by just
really? Yeah, I was really lucky. So But no, I just knew it wasn’t for me and it feels like ages ago but you’re making
me have a flashback. I was a student customs officer a Pearson in the Walter one. And when you know when flights of families came from Florida everybody declared everything it was like it was almost like it got it got almost annoying because it was like well we have like two Mickey Mouse dolls and you know one bottle of alcohol and this and we’re like that’s fine just go go you know if you are you over your limits you know pay the tax if you’re not just get get out of here I just want to go home right? Yeah, but then the other flights would come in either from like Amsterdam, which is like a known hub coming over from the you know, other side of the world basically. And everyone’s on like high alert, it would be Amsterdam, or just different parts of the world were just known where a lot of funnel a lot of just different drug traffic, the drug dogs would be out. And I remember one flight. Some guy comes with you remember those old blue Adidas bags with the red handles?
Yeah. They probably sell them again.
Yeah, my style. So this guy comes.
I’ve seen him at the gym.
Yes, yeah, yeah. Okay, so he comes running around the corner, basically hugging this thing. And I look at it. This is back in the day where he had plane tickets. And I could tell there’s codes on these plane tickets that they taught us to look for. I could tell the ticket was bought cash the day before. I asked him a couple questions I can’t remember what I asked him something probably I was probably freaking out or something because I was thinking this guy has drugs he’s a cash bar ticket they trained us if you buy the ticket cash the day before and you looks as measures as drugs right, and I put them into get searched and the whole bottom of the Adidas bag that hard cardboard bottom all layered with cocaine
Whoa, yeah, blast Yeah,
just like you just kind of like lucky right? I’m like, I think there’s been another time in immigration immigration was behind the customs booths. And I was sitting there in between flights you do nothing I used to race on the chairs because we would we you know, a bunch of us would get the chairs that had wheels on them and the customs Hall had a hard flat floor and if you ran and then jumped on your chair, you could kind of glide through the customers all like you know 3040 this is what we did between Yeah, flux. Anyway I’m back in my booth. I think I’m studying I’m in last year university or something like that. And some guy just whipped by me the other way like going you know, not the direction he should be going custom holes empty and immigration screams stop that man. I’m like, oh my god. So I jumped out of the booth I start running a full timer runs fat you know faster is past me are already done the thing I’m running down the thing the full the full time guy jumps on I jump over there, guy here so I’m taking back into immigration. I thought that was like the coolest police moment. You know, we got the guy didn’t even know where he was going to run to try and get on a plane. Like Where was he going?
If some of these people have not thought out their nose
by the seat of their pants and usually doesn’t end well.
Yeah, I have ton of stories. But
that’s incredible. I wish we had a little common.
Yeah, totally tell you right. But I want to get back to your story. Yeah. So you have that realization. But then how difficult was like what was the transition from pulling the plug? Because you had to go back to school? No, right. So yeah, what was that like? Yeah,
I had already done my undergrad. So I had everything I needed to apply to chiropractic school. So I actually said Well, okay, well, I’ll stay local. So I applied to the chiropractic school in Toronto. So I was still working as police officer and then I did the interview and I got my acceptance and I just worked the rest of the summer at peel police and then basically handed in my stuff in August and move to move to Toronto and and start a chiropractic school.
Go so what how old were you then?
You’re still in your twin
20s Yeah, I was I was older than a lot of the, a lot of a lot of right in only a couple years older. So I think in my mid 20s, I believe Yeah. So that and that was really easy because I now like, comparatively to me like, you know, sitting at classroom studying, no night shift. No, like, it was easy, right. But to a lot of the people that had just come from right from university that they were just, it was really tough because it was continuing studying. They had never been there never been out. Yeah, gotta know what I mean in the real world. So like to go from the real roback school was kind of easy, and I enjoyed it.
Yeah. Yeah, that’s cool. I mean, you’re lucky you kind of seem to have made the change. At the right time, it was early. Yeah. I shouldn’t say that. It’s not the right time because people are making changes. Now. It’s always the right time. I just mean, you had the courage to do it at that time. might have been a little easier. You You weren’t married at that time. Yeah.
So Sandy and I were no we weren’t married but we were together so yeah, that required cuz she had some she was a had a job in, I believe, brilliant at the time. We were living in Burlington. So but then she ended up getting hired for the same job in Toronto. So we just moved to two young and Eglinton and had a fun four and a half or so years there. So it was it worked out well. And, but it was funny. Yeah. Because a few of the people were like, well, you What do you mean, you got everybody wants this job? And you’re leaving it after? Two years, right? And then, you know, one get one guy came up to me, it’s like, you’re very smart, because who cares about you know, they’d say, well, you have benefits and you have a pension. Yeah, but I have to trade 2530 years of my life. So what your to your original point, which is, and I would say most of my patients do not really like their jobs, but it’s okay. How long do I have to do that? I’m trading so many years and so many hours of my week for 5560 I get I get to retire just I thought that’s strange idea.
I’m tired of telling people that’s an okay way to live. And I know that some people don’t like it when I say that because you know, everyone has different family needs and they’re supporting family and stuff. But we’re only all here for a very short time. It’s like a blip, right? And I just strongly believe that we all have a unique gift and purpose and that if we’re trapped in something we shouldn’t be, you’re not fully expressing yourself and you’re not fully contributing to the community in the way you could be. Because I can see the way you love chiropractic like it comes out like the passion you have for it when I’m in your office and there’s like six people waiting and you’re there and you start talking like you’re giving a like an impromptu seminar. When you when you ask everyone like okay, let me ask everyone if you sleep this way, and your next like this all night, what will happen and you’re, you’re basically teaching everybody about posture and neck position, like it just oozes out of you at all times. And if you if you didn’t do that, would almost to me be ashamed because how many people you were just telling me about a lady that you did an adjustment on? who hadn’t stood up and kind of and I don’t know what you can and can’t say, Yeah, but but she was having trouble standing up and you did an adjustment and she could stand up a lot.
Yeah, she had had. Yeah, without giving too many details. She had had spinal surgery a few years back, but she’s been coming to me for a while. And you know, getting a lot of benefit from chiropractic care. And it helped her to maintain her quality of life, but because of their surgery, and she had an infection after the surgery and a lot of problems. This is before I had met her. You know, she would, she always stands, she has a walker to get around. And she stands like kind of hunched forward. And I’m always thinking with patients, even though like, I don’t want to be like, I want to be improving. Like, I want to be a better chiropractor when I’ve been doing it for 40 years and 10 years. And I’m saying like, so I’m thinking, I wonder and I had this idea to try something to adjust to a certain way which I hadn’t tried before. And I did it and she got up and she stood up straight. And that was the first time she had stood up straight since before her surgery. And she started crying. How long ago was that? I think her surgery was in 2015. So I mean, that’s, I mean, that’s what brings five. Yeah, it is crazy. It is crazy. So it’s like a miracle in the office. So she was crying and then my assistant Jody came in and we were all kind of celebrating there’s some other patients there that had seen her and they were like shocked too. Is
that sustainable or because her body so used to that other position? Does it GM automatically tighten up and go back? How does that work?
Yeah, we’re we’re working on it with her. I mean, again, this is a person who had like, you know, if they, you know, it’s, it’s entirely possible if she, I’m not saying my care, but had not gotten the right things after this procedure. She’d either be bedridden or possibly not even alive, like just that. There’s a lot of stuff going on there. Okay, so I don’t I now I do this particular adjustment with her every time she comes in, and she and she’ll, it’s lasting a bit longer, and she’s getting to another level of improvement. So that’s really cool. But that’s what I think is like Um, I kind of laugh when people like whatever doctor they go to whether it’s chiropractor, Doctor physio and some and they get the word said to them, we can’t there’s nothing we can do for you. I think the doctor if you, you gotta figure if, if there’s nothing you figure it out, then, like, try to fake try to solve this problem for this person in front of you that wants your help, right? So that’s what I try to do with patients. Sometimes it’s really straightforward. And other times it’s more complicated, and we tried different playing with the variables, how often they come in, how we adjust them, what stuff they do at home, to try to get them that improvement that they want. So anyway, yeah.
And I want to ask you more chiropractic questions in a second. Yeah, just to round out the discussion just on you know, living the life you really want to live or what we call living life on your terms. I just, if anyone’s listening to this and you’re thinking about, you know, making a change in your life, some advice that like that I always share is that don’t you don’t have to quit too early. I would have hated anyone who told me this. Like don’t quit, you know, stay with your job. And I remember back when I wanted to quit, you know, late 20s early 30s I quit when I was 33. I would have said you don’t understand I hate my job, I’m quitting tomorrow, all I would share with you, if you’re listening to this, have the system in place that’s going to produce some revenue for you in advance. So for you, you went to chiropractic college, you knew there was going to be this other kind of career ahead of you, you just didn’t quit the police force, and say, like money is going to drop from the sky or something like that, you know, in effect, another plan for myself, I wanted to get into real estate, but the idea of real estate wasn’t enough to produce income for my family, we could keep buying properties, but the properties weren’t going to replace I had a pretty high salary, right wasn’t going to replace that income. So I needed to study business, and understand how to create systems to get new customers for the business, Nick and I were going to start which would eventually become rock star. And to me, all that became my number one priority. That became all my focus. And when I got confident in that system that it would produce, cut new customers and clients for us. That’s when I quit, right? It wasn’t like the idea of real estate was in my head. And then I said, I’m going to quit. I waited and studied and learned and tested a few things until I had a system and then I had the confidence to quit. So if you’re listening to this, and you’re like, I don’t know, I want to quit, but I know what to do start looking at systems that will produce income for you. And once you get comfortable with those systems, if you believe in them enough, and they’re mapped alongside the business that you want to get into, or the niche or the industry that you want to get into, then I think you can kind of step into it right but to just quit out of frustration with no plan is a little dangerous, right? Especially supporting a family or you you know, you have some responsibilities. Yeah,
I mean, you know, and you never want to have that feeling of jumping off a cliff and doing something because yeah, as to your point out of frustration, I can’t do this job anymore. So I’m leaving and then you know, I’ll figure it out later. Ideally, you would, as you said, definitely have some kind of, or take your time i think you know, I listened to and you know, Gary Gary Vee, we you know, see his stuff. He’s all over Facebook and Instagram and he preaches Which I love is patience, which is, you know, because you think like, and I dealt with this, like you’re 25 you should have or 30 or 35 you should have and he’s like, well, I’m going to be, he’s whatever he is in his mid 40s. And he’s like, I’m just getting started. I think that’s such a good attitude because we get thinking, especially if we compare and I was really when I graduated and still, earlier in my chiropractic, I met a lot of different chiropractors and some of them had achieved very high levels of financial success very quickly. And you compare yourself way will you know, what am I not doing right that this this guy or girl is doing and I have that way he did this by age 40. And I haven’t made for I haven’t done that reach this milestone, and that’s really not good. That’s,
that’s actually useless. It’s useless. Actually a negative. It’s a negative. Yeah, and the reason it’s a complete negative, I’ll let you complete I know I’m just going good. The reason it’s a complete negative is because you are a unique person, right, the way you deliver Chiropractic and the way you’re going to contribute to The world is very different than those other people and for you to compare yourself against another person, it that they’re on their path they’re doing what they are going to do their way. That’s not the way you should be doing it. So if you try to copy someone else it always I’ve seen this and I’ve seen this in software, right? I’ve seen this in real estate, I see it everywhere. If you are true to yourself and express the business that you’re in the way you want to express it. things start happening as soon as you try to mimic other people and not be true to you. It never works out. You might get some quick money you might make some easy sales or something but it’s not a long lasting success. Like I tell my own kids this that like you know, life is going to be a pretty tough journey at moments. So pick a path that you are excited to be in for you. It’s chiropractic for me it’s real estate, and pick pick it and go into it and expect to the hardships expect the the war scars expect the bad days. Expect Hard work. That’s, that’s all normal, right? And in fact, all the hard stuff is valuable because when you do have the good moments, they’re that much better because of all the hard stuff you went through. So the journey you know, everyone talks about the journey is the success, like the struggle that you’re going through as long as it’s directed in the passion that you have, you know, the area of life, you want to spend your time, nothing can go wrong. The bad days, in fact, aren’t bad because at that very moment, when you have a really bad day, something else in the world is happening that’s going to produce your best day ever. Absolutely. And I just strong and I don’t mean to sound airy fairy. I just believe that in my soul at this point, you know, it’s come to the point where sometimes we’re all bad things will happen to Nick and I’m in real estate. There’s like, there’s countless bad things that can happen. But at that moment, we’re dealing with it. I’m like, I wonder where a week from now something amazing is going to happen. I know it’s brewing out there and something awesome is going to happen. I don’t know what it is yet, but I know I’m dealing with this shit right now. Yeah, so I’m due for one of those awesome moments. And that kind of perspective has selfishly just helped me A lot, right.
I know that’s, I think a lot of times you probably agree with this, like, a lot of the challenges you have, well, one of two things, either it, it somehow spurs you to find a solution or be better. Or it gives you perspective and you say, Well, I had this problem and I didn’t know how it’s going to work out, but somehow it worked out. So the next time something like scary shows up in your path, you don’t have to freak out and have like, you know, tons of anxiety and say, Okay, well to problem I’m not I’m not really sure exactly how it’s gonna work out. But
you know, it’ll work out, right, because those problems are building you into a bigger, stronger person for sure. Because those problems before freak you out because you didn’t know how to handle them, but right problems that come to you now. I don’t even know how old you are.
you’re 45 you went to radio voice when you said that or
when you’re 45 the stuff that you’re dealing with. Now, when you were like 27 might have been a big problem. Now something like that happens in your life and you just kind of shrug it off. So You know, the journey makes you the person and, you know these hardships.
That’s why I think you as you get older, you get you become better. Like because again, there’s I was like, you know, you’d see and this is when I had met some chiropractors before, like, even far as police officer. I liked that. At least the chiropractors I had met, some of them were older, but they were still really passionate about what they were doing. And I had met other people that were like, okay, when do I When do I get to retire? And like, that’s the new life’s kind of over like you’re, you’re racing to end it. It didn’t make sense to me, but like, you know, football and getting filled with Tom Brady right? He’s 42 or 43 bills fan bring up to listen, I’ve had to deal with that guy. You’re ruining my life. Yeah, my whole life almost since he came on the scene. It’s been terrible but like, that’s when I see him. He’s like he’s like, so he you continue to accumulate knowledge of the game, the more experience you have, but because he’s been able to maintain his body then he can Be at a really high level. And that’s what I think for you and I are pretty much anybody like, you could be your best in your profession when you’re 50 or 60, or 70 or 80. Versus, oh, you’re 60 you’re no good anymore. Like, just move aside because you know, your dinosaur.
And it’s funny, like, go ahead. No, no, go ahead.
Well, anyway, that That, to me is really is really interesting. And that’s one of the things I love about chiropractic is that like, if I maintain, you know, as long as I can do this, which I maintain my body, and I can do that, I know that I’m a lot better chiropractor than it was five years ago, or 10 years ago. And wow, 10 years from now be even that much better because I continue to gain data and have experiences that can allow me to become better and better and better versus Oh, I’ve reached my peak. Now. It’s all downhill and I’m just like, you know, go off into the sunset. You’re becoming wise.
I know. It’s funny you say that because what I was going to say is that we Nick and I have a friend who runs a pretty large sized business and had a bit of a health scare a little while back, and now he he would have never done this a little while ago. He has massage once a week. And every other week he gets a chiropractic adjustment. And he said, you know what I’m investing into my body. I’ve never felt better. He’s, you know, he feels like he’s totally engaged in his day and his business. And it’s just come to what you’re saying, even though he’s now older than we knew him 10 years ago, he feels like he’s just the best years are ahead for himself personally and for his business. Because of the way he’s kind of taking care of himself now. So we’re tying it back a little bit, too.
Yeah. And one thing I want to jump in with is that the other thing I suffered with many problems, one of my, one of the problems was
having a you’re a bills fan. Yeah.
For many years. But there’s good around the corner, right?
Yeah, no, I’m on the bandwagon. Man, James Allen with Joshua jeantel. In his personal development, author of some old books,
I know exactly as a man thinking.
Yeah, that’s right. Yeah.
JOHN, Joshua Joshua.
I’m a big fan. Obviously. Well, we’re working on it’s fine. But you you, like we only know what goes on in our head. So you think now you look around and you say, well, that, you know, all these people have got it together and I’m have these problems, I’m a mess what, but what I as I meet more people in life and in my practice, a lot of times, you know, the the person that’s really doing well financially, maybe they’re not doing so well on their health or someone that’s doing well, with their health, their businesses, they have some challenges or, or their relationships, so we can all sort of help each other. It’s sort of a cooperative thing is that, you know, you’ve helped me with ideas around marketing and advertising and business, and I can help you with your health and we all start to accumulate skills, but don’t think that like, like, you know, I should have at a certain age, I should have it all together because as you can see, you know, it’s that’s not the case, but all of us can sort of benefit from so I’m benefiting from your experiences having spent these years we’re learning marketing and advertising and welcome at your shelf. books here have all this and you’re benefiting from my you know the adjustment I give you today is actually going to benefit from all is getting benefit from the patients I’ve seen over the last 1415 years and the skills and knowledge I’ve accrued right so it’s kind of cool that yeah awesome so
we’re I guess the circle it all back We’re glad you made the transition from an officer to a chiropractor I am Yeah, totally and it shows
so either way I’m 111 more thing I want to say I have total respect for police officers it’s a tough job and but when I you know when I left there was a sergeant there this is near the end of before I left and we were wanting for night shift and you and he said his wife was complaining because he was happy going into night shift right and I’m like that’s the guy that’s supposed to be a police officer cuz he loves coming in he’s been doing it for those people should be police guys should be doing it and and I’m the guy that shouldn’t have been doing it and we can all find what what that is for us
totally. And you know what, there’s some members of Rockstar who are police officers, and we’re just Born to it. They’re amazing police officers, you know, and there’s firefighters and they’re amazing firefighters, some want to get out but others don’t. They love their career and it’s amazing. And they should continue doing it for sure. Right. So
those and those are the people that if your mom calls 911 because that’s the one you want going out. And if you’re someone so called a chiropractor and needs help, they want you want them coming to me because you want people caring about what they do. And that’s going to be great service for for everyone, right and the people that aren’t into it, like move on to something else like because you’ll be happier too. I want to transition to some chiropractic chit chat before we spend all our time talking about is I got this concussion kit or whiplash
concussion situation at probably end of September. And so for those of you listening don’t know a guy on our team got a Tesla with ludicrous mode. He puts it in ludicrous mode drives me around the block I’m not gonna say which streets or anything I’m not even gonna say his name but it let’s just say he went really fast. Any went really fast, let’s say four or five times and I got smashed around in the car a little bit I wouldn’t even I got out thinking nothing really happened but I definitely didn’t have my head against the headrest. So you know, I was jostled around in there, and I had a really bad concussion like seven eight years ago. Anyway, next morning I get up I thought I was just groggy from the car ride almost like being on a roller coaster and you’re like, Oh, I just need to sleep it off. Got up the next morning and definitely had concussion like symptoms that match my previous concussion groggy head if there was too much noise or just holding a conversation with somebody would be really exhausting all these symptoms that I had before and luckily knew you and you started giving me adjustments early on that really helped so from I was just curious, from your opinion, what was happened why was that helpful to me because it kind of it almost like it, the lights turned back on in my head a little bit, not a little bit, actually a quite a lot and then it would kind of drift back. Right and then I would Do another adjustment and and i also you know, well I don’t know I was gonna say I was also kind of trying to figure out myself what was happening but what what do you think was that why was that helping me through that period?
Well there’s two
two sort of explanations and and they both may be going on but let’s let’s assume that something in this well you might have some pre existing issue from your previous maybe right but you go through this experience and you get like a whiplash or you get like your head gets knocked around. And it’s a stress to your nervous system into your brain perhaps like from you know, from the end even if it’s I don’t know if it wasn’t this case, but if it’s like a violent enough thing, your tissues are damaged in the process.
And that’s the thing I don’t know if I don’t know if it was, I don’t know if someone has been like,
So then there’s so then your nervous system has gone on it goes into you know, perceived a threat goes into high alert. There’s a two divisions of the nervous system The sympathetic and parasympathetic, sympathetic like fight or flight stress response. So there’s all kinds of changes that go on with that response. So it may be decreased blood flow to certain parts of the body, even even the brain, changes in muscle function. All of these things which may cause you to feel lousy, headache, dizziness, pressure,
well off balance all these all these things right. So now you know if so if you’re an and a lot of the, the wiring of the nervous system is through the spine. So if we, if that’s if those nerves are being in the necklace, say upper neck near the skull near the head or being irritated, and I come in and I do an adjustment that allows that sympathetic fight or flight tone to go down your body and your body to relax. Then you shift into that parasympathetic state so blood flow may improve to the head muscles may relax. Breathing may become deeper And then you feel I’m kind of getting back to normal,
which is what I did feel it was more like, yeah, like a while I don’t understand why. Like, it’s because the nervous system was like, what is it that you’re doing with a chiropractic adjustment that allows me to go that felt?
I mean, yeah, like, again, and I would say that we continue with research, we continue to learn what I don’t got
trouble saying, No, no, I’m not gonna say now I know. Now I know all about things. I’m not
gonna say any to say what you’re allowed.
That’s what I’m gonna do. I don’t want it but here’s what I would say. Here’s what we know when we make so good. Sometimes people say, well, what’s the difference between a massage and an a chiropractic adjustment? And sometimes people say, well, it feels different. And so with massage, again, generally speaking, people you’re you’re putting pressure onto muscles and soft tissues. With the adjustments, at least the way I do it, you’re going deeper to the level of the joints at the spine. So that has a different, somewhat of a different neurological response then just touching someone or doing a massage. So when we get in deep and make those spinal joints move, there are the it activates nerves that go to the spinal cord to go to the brain that seemed to create certain responses and changes in things like again, blood flow and muscle tone. Certain biomechanical biochemical changes can be picked up in the bloodstream after an adjustment after we get in there and activate those things. So if I’m adjusting you, it’s got to be again, we don’t exactly know all of the way it works, but it’s changing something in the nervous system. And that sounds interesting, but the best part about it is you’re telling me I feel better after you do that. And I’m getting better as we continue to do this. But definitely when we make an adjustment where people think, Oh, it’s a bone, it’s a muscle thing. It’s a nerve thing. We’re getting to the nerve receptors in the joints that fire off into the spinal cord into the brain and create changes that are that look to be positive. for that individual and they feel better than that’s the complete package.
So if I guess in layman’s terms for me, where is the nurse or the nerves pinched a little bit
like are in your case? Not really. And you know, here’s another way to look at you know, when you when you work out, yeah or go for a run and you feel better after word like the runner’s high. Absolutely right. Yeah. So what we think we think that is, is that when you’re moving these parts of body joints to the body, nerve signals fire into the spinal cord cerebellum in the brain. And then some, there’s some responses which are endorphin release, right? So you know that if you work out every day, you feel better than if you lie on the couch all day, every day, right? We feel better, we feel more alert, we sleep better everything. That’s kind of what adjustments doing. It’s adjustment is firing off receptors in the joints of the spine, that go to the brain and create endorphin release and changes in brain function. You could
sound crazy to some people listening to this and but I felt almost like that when you fork right? some adjustments more than others, some adjustments like oh, wow, like it just really feels great.
Yeah, you could almost think of it again, it’s not totally accurate but recharging the brain we’re getting like signals going to the brain, which like your brain, the less the less you do with your brain, the more the poor, it felt like the less you do as a bot with your body, your brain function kind of or I should say brain function, but your mental acuity goes down if you don’t read if you don’t think if you don’t exercise, you just lay around all day.
We need this even Shouldn’t the human body just be perfect the way it is? Is it like just a modern, you know, person’s problem? We’re in the last hundred years we all have possibly more like like 150 years, maybe more and more hundred years ago like that people need chiropractors or is this something where we need them now just because of our postures messed up or hunched over text messaging all the time on your laptop? Yeah, you’re
great question. Now if you if you look historically, there have been there are Greek pictures from ancient Greece of people putting your hands on people’s spines or backs. There are I have patients from I think I told us on a previous
Okay, that makes sense because if you throw it a rib or something,
but they weren’t, they weren’t necessarily doing it for that reason they were doing it as like, and again, I did, I had some patients from one from Trinidad, and she had just came to me and when I was when she saw me doing the adjustment, she goes all that we had, when I was a little girl growing up in Trinidad, we had an old an old lady, she said in the village, that if you had any stomach hurt or whatever, you would go over and they would move your crack your bones. And that was so you know, for for really thousands of years. On some level there’s this understood a connection between spine and joints and overall health not just like, you know, elbow pain or do something to your elbow, but they thought there was some connection there and now we know that the connections and nervous system, so I think we know better now what it can do for people and probably again If you look back, I don’t know, industrial pre industrial. If you were a farmer gatherer, you were moving all the time. Maybe you got a lot of that nutrition to the brain, because you’re moving all the time now. Okay, you have your half an hour to go to the gym the rest of day you’re sitting
in front of your computer. So time and it’s probably
Yeah, it’s probably more valuable to people now that maybe it was 100 or 200 years ago. And that’s probably coincides, interestingly, with the timing where chiropractic was sort of founded, which was 1895, over 100 years ago, and it’s become very valuable for for a lot of people I think,
yeah, it’s, it’s kind of a fascinating field to me, and I feel fortunate that I’m able to get this kind of treatment, but I have something else for you is that I become very self aware of my own body over the last six years before that, like between the ages of like, I don’t know 25 and 30. I was just so busy in a new career software career and then buying real rental properties and then quitting and starting this with Nick rock star. I didn’t pay any attention to my body. You know, I had like a god and I’m, you know, I just my body fat percentage was definitely different. And do you think if I was getting adjustments in when I was 35, I would have even felt because I’ve thought about this I’m like, I can definitely feel a difference when I get adjustments. But I wonder if at 35 cuz I was so out of it like I didn’t even I wasn’t in tune with my body or any sort of, you know, personal health at all. I wonder if I got an adjustment if I would have just written it off much more easily. Whereas now, like, there’s a real benefit there because I know how I feel and I’m really much more in tune.
Yeah, I think that’s a fair point. I would say, generally, the people that perceived the biggest benefit, I’m okay. You know, I’m saying like if I have someone that comes in at work, so a lot or they’re an athlete, or they’re, yes, certainly if they’re an athlete, they feel the fine tuning of their body and they Oh, they, they they like perceive that better. But if you’re like completely in your head, working every day and you’re not really paying attention to your body until Oh my Gosh, my back is killing me or my next call me. You might feel okay, I got adjusted, I feel better, but you don’t have the same amount of fine tuning but I, I think I feel this way and probably you are gain this, like the more fine tuning you have, the better the experiences because it’s not like I feel nothing. Now I feel bad. As opposed to like I feel good. I feel really, really good. I feel slightly less good. But it’s, you’re feeling those levels of fine tuning right, which is not just chiropractic. It’s working out yoga, meditating all those things combined, right? Totally.
And I know I know when I’m in the best rhythm it’s always when I’m going to the gym ideally three times a week and I’m if I get an adjustment from you once a week through that, that to me is my sweet spot. Because if I’m going to gym three times a week, I really feel just get a good kind of, I don’t know, I’m sweating, I get the gaffin rush. I feel like I feel really good. And that adjustment just combined in there. That’s my sweet spot. And then of course I can always hold that you know, travel right different things. I haven’t been to the gym now. It’s going to be I guess like eight or nine weeks. I was just telling Someone, this is the longest haven’t been to the gym since I turned 40, some 40. So six years, I’ve never had a break like this. And now I’m in that phase where I’m like, I’m a little scared to go back, I got it. Like, oh my gosh, it’s gonna hurt, it’s gonna hurt when I go back,
it will. But I would you know, I think to our previous topic, you know, I think after you get back and get that you’re going to be better in six months than you were prior. Because I think you’re going to come to a new level of like, sort of function and appreciation and you’ll be able to, like, exceed where you were before. Sometimes that’s how plateaus are busted with a challenge again, so
and you know what this, this whole concussion experience has really allowed me some time to reflect on my life a little bit, because I’ve just had a bit more time to think and I’ve been resting a little bit more, which has been tough. Nick and I have a pretty busy schedule. I’ll just tell you right now is insane for us. Like Yeah, we’re about losing our minds. Yeah, we’re hanging. It’s all good, right? It’s all good. But the discussion has had me have moments of where I’ve just purposely and you’ve helped me with that. Break. My day and that kind of stuff where I had to, but just having that time to think has been really, really helpful. And I just feel like I’ve this concussion has allowed it’s, it’s, it’s funny because it’s a negative experience. But the positive that has come out of it is so great because always in my life, the best things have come when I’ve had time to reflect and think. And in the last few years, and they can have been having so much fun building a rockstar, I haven’t made the time to reflect and think because I’ve been doing what I wanted to be doing. So it’s almost like you kind of wake up and you run out the door of like, yeah, I gotta do this, I’m going to do that and you’re kind of excited. Whereas this has forced me to reflect and think and I got the creative juices flowing. And I have a bunch of ideas for Nick on how Rockstar can have a greater impact in the community with the investors that we’re working with. And it’s just this negative experiences really, I can see the positive that’s coming out of it because now I’m going to schedule in days throughout the month. I’m gonna start with one day, so I don’t just have quiet time in the morning. I’m going to have a day a month where I have nothing scheduled I’m gonna go for walks, I’m going to think nothing in my calendar for the whole day. And so there’s there’s all this great positive that’s coming out of this negative
is happening I, I completely see that and I Yeah, I agree I agree I think you will have that and I you know that goes to I used to tell patients like you know if they’re having a tough go with their health or stress or whatever it so you know, I want you to go home tonight and just like get some takeout, put your feet up, watch a movie, relax and go to bed early. And, and as I’ve gone through, like, people never want to do that. That looks like you’re the hardest thing on the world or
especially a tough person.
Yeah, like, which a lot of maybe a lot of my patients with that way or I’d say like, you know, once you go meditate, you know, 15 minutes and it’s just like asking them to do the most difficult man, it’s
hard to find,
how am I gonna find the time for that?
It’s gonna be really hard. We’re all
but they would do something else that would be like they would drive themselves, you know, 16 hours a day working. That’s they’ll, they’ll accept that. But what We have to realize is the trade off. When you take, if you look at and you’ve read all these books, a lot of people that get the big big ideas that it comes to them when they’re relaxing, either when they wake up in the middle of the night with an idea, or they’re like sitting, you know, on a beach and they get this idea, it’s like you can’t like force your mind to grind out good ideas like
so can schedule it from one of my good.
So if you realize, oh, when I relax or meditate or or go to bed early or whatever, that’s actually going to make me more productive on the other end because if I if I’m functioning well, I can get things done very efficiently very quickly. But if I’m scattered or tired or whatever, then Okay, I’m working hard but it’s actually taking me way longer to do this. So you’ve got to sell it to people and sometimes when they try it and in your experience that you were maybe forced to because of this experience, right? And now you’re like well maybe if I schedule it’s almost
like a universe was just slapped me across our thing. Yeah, totally. Yeah.
And and I too That’s our thing because I, you know, all this stuff on Instagram and you see people that like, and it’s good idea to schedule every, you know, minute of it but if you go Okay, I’m going to just like, Well, I’ll tell you what happened to me today and I hope this doesn’t sound weird but I tried to go on like, you know, just kind of like after I meditate if I get an idea, I try to follow through with that, for whatever it is. So it’s I meditate today after yoga, and I had the idea. Go get a coffee at this place in Mississauga that I haven’t been to in a couple years, but I just felt like okay, I should just go there. There was nothing really magical wasn’t like a light out of the sky or anything from heaven just need a coffee. No, I did, but it was where to get it. So I felt like, I’ll get gonna go to this place. I haven’t been there in a couple years. So I did a few things. And I got there and I walk in I look down to the end of this cafe and sitting at the thing is my this guy Nino who cuts my hair. And I’m like, Oh, hey, you know, how are you like, right? And he’s sitting here talking to a guy so I’m like, nice to see I order my coffee. And then something in the voice inside of me, we have the voice over, just go over and shake his hand. I’m like, Alright, so I’m over. How does How you doing, you know, shake his hand, and you go and I said, you sitting with this guy. So I said, Hey, I’m Pete shook his hand. And he’s like, oh, what are you doing? I’m a chiropractor. And he’s like, oh, and I was like, Okay, sit down. Next thing, you know, I’m having this conversation with this guy. And he’s looking at my YouTube channel on and telling me on his phone and telling me you have to change this and this so that more people will see it. Like, what the heck happened here? So like, I just got so what was that? I don’t know. But I got some really valuable advice on how to improve my YouTube channel. I didn’t schedule it. I didn’t plan it. But this impulse to go to this and the timing, because if I had gone 20 minutes earlier, 20 minutes later, they wouldn’t have been there. I don’t really know how to explain that. But I like I noticed when I meditate, I get more and I and I get more
flow that go and
flow, you know, but flow so and when you’re in flow, like it’s magical and when you’re out of flow, you feel like you’re walking quicksand nothing is like going right and you could try for months to improve your YouTube channel but one guy, and he also told me maybe you know to get on LinkedIn, I’m like LinkedIn. I’ve known about it
on LinkedIn, we get some of our best leads from LinkedIn.
Anyway so i don’t know i’m talking about this but anyway so so what I’m trying to sell myself on meditating every day because and then just going what you know like not having it but what should I do? What’s the impulse leading me to
your your next level? I think most people just need to carve out that 15 minutes just to chill. Oh, yeah,
yeah, yeah. First start with that. Yeah. But then see and see how it affects your day. And
that’s what before I quit my job I was spending a lot I don’t know if I told you that my our mom when I was 13, and Nick was eight. I can’t believe Nick did this just in his personality type took us to meditation camp for summer school. Did we ever
tell your mom didn’t?
Yeah, Toronto Central Library did throughout Toronto Central Library. In the middle of summer there was a meditation camp as a 13 year old and an eight year old. She takes her mom’s genius. And yeah, we they used to have us medic And then we would, you know, you’d see the movie screen of your life and what you wanted to play out like and that you also do little exercises like, pick an exact time and meditate on this that you want to wake up tomorrow with no alarm clock and it couldn’t be like 730 had to be like, you know, 704 or you know, something strange. And it worked like a charm. And I remember at that time, I don’t know if I was young, I just remember thinking, Wow, you’re, I just remember thinking, Okay, I’m pretty powerful, like my mind is really powerful thing and kind of didn’t pay too much more attention to it other than that, but I’ve always just kind of had that. And so meditations always been part of our lives. Nick was maybe a little bit young to go at eight years old, but it definitely had an impact on us. But the point I wanted to make is that all of us are running around too busy in North America, like especially in North America, we are running from school, drop the kids off at school, pick kids up, go to activity number one, go to activity number 15. Next stays the same. Try to get in you know, you can’t get to a chiropractor because you don’t have the time. And the biggest thing. It’s funny cuz I just wrote an article on this for the Rockstar inner circle members, that there is power in subtracting things out of life. Right. Derek Severs has this great thing. It’s a little article that he shares on like, it’s on his website, I think he go to servers.org. org forward slash subtract, I think is the URL for this little passage. It’s such a beautiful passage, because he basically says if there’s a think of a scale of zero to 20, and it either and you’re basically way off kilter, right, you don’t want to be at zero, you don’t mean 20 in your perfect life, you want to be a 10. So if you’re at like 13, and you’re trying to get 10, if you add seven, is that going to help you get to 10? And no, but that’s what our society kind of teaches us to do. You’re always adding things add this into your life, add this, do this, where this Fitbit tracker where the check your HRV do do that and sometimes to get to the place you want to go, you actually need to subtract,
and I thought that was such a powerful message and we wrote a big article on it instead. And I just think that it’s valuable that you’ve carve out the time and I’m realizing well I’m carve out more time for myself right now I’m working on it. I’m like, I’m like anybody else like you maybe I started a bit earlier with that, but I’m working on it because again, one for the relaxation but to there’s a payoff because things go smoothly and I’m more efficient and like you can you can notice the payoff, but I think it’s a good point. Yeah, cuz you just try to cram more in. And then you’re so stressed, you’re not even really an indigo. And then you’re like, What? You don’t even know what you weren’t present? No, no,
no, I noticed that most when we go to Croatia, because when tourists go there, the internet breaks the structure. They can’t handle the infrastructure. So when all the tourists come there, you literally if you launch your phone to get an update on anything and a little bit of sports news that’s happening in the middle of summer anything or some interest rate update, or whatever I’m looking for you you can’t get it like the the internet’s like literally clogged so you can only get on the internet between like 1am and 4:30am. Really, so sometimes if we really have to do something, Nick, and I need to Sudden alarm, get up at four, you know, we got like 30 minutes to jam out a couple emails or texts, but it ends up being beautiful because the first few days you’re freaking out, you’re totally freaked out. You’re like, Oh my gosh, then after that you look at your phone, and you’re like, I’m going to throw this piece of garbage into the sea. This thing is sucks, right? Because you’re so in the moment with the family, like when no one because they can’t get on the internet either. Right? So when you go for lunch, and you’re laughing and talking and in the moment, and no one’s checking anything else, or it’s, it’s beautiful. And to me, we’ve lost that a little bit in life, but I want to come back Listen, we’re talking about all this stuff, which I love. But from I just want to circle back to chiropractic but for a moment, what are what are signs that somebody should maybe consider getting themself checked out by a chiropractor for long term optimal health? Not if you obviously have back pain, you know, if you obviously have some postural problem with your neck, your back, okay, check, get it checked out. But I just mean, is there something else is there Is it just you go to a chiropractor who knows what they’re talking about? And you get checked out and see what happens? Or the winds? Or do you just go?
Yeah, I mean, I think, well, this is like, it depends on where the person is at. So I would say that first of all, because what a person’s values are will dictate, right? Should everybody have their spine looked at by a chiropractor? Sure. So everybody goes to the dentist, have their teeth looked at sure. But Is everybody ready for that right now? No. You know, for some people the priorities, they have other priorities, but so for people that if we we can talk about conditions, right, back pain, neck pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, joint problems, low energy, all those things chiropractic can often help with but for someone that, you know, they vet like yourself that values their day to day, how they feel and how they perform those two things because you think about our association together. You know, You’ve had the odd ache or pain or tweak, but what would you say chiropractic has given you was in a really general term,
it just allowed me to function optimally, right?
Keep going to the gym,
get up, do your do your business. And so for people that are into that, then and and you know, looking for the next thing, that would be something that they want to check out. I want to say this too. And every, every profession has really great providers, and maybe those that aren’t as excited about it. And people will resonate with different people. So I’ve had, you know, people that have come to me that have been to other chiropractors, and then I adjust them and they go, Wow, that’s different than I’ve never had that before. So if you if you have so I don’t want
you to know, a bit of an art to this.
There’s an art to it, but there’s also an art of like that person meshing with that provider. So I will have people that have come to me and probably left and went, yeah, I didn’t like that guy. And like we did, it’s the same with us in real estate and real estate. Yeah. So if you if you went to a chiropractor and you’d had a less than Like, you know, stellar experience, don’t just write it off. If you feel like you’re looking for that edge, you’re looking to be doing better. And the other part that we want to I want to interject here is that your kids are young people. So joint and spine and nerve problems start like our nervous system is wiring our body and how it works from birth. And if we get into imbalances and joints not moving properly at three and four and 10 years old, those things become very difficult to work with later in life. They can be worked on always scared with my daughter just because she does the competitive dance he’s always jumping around doing Yeah, and I know yours does cheer here, soccer and you know all these things. So if you if you’re a proactive thinker, you may think you know what I should get my kid their spine and their joints checked by a chiropractor and monitored so that they know that would In my opinion, set them up for actually a better future than you and I are capable of because they it would be like you know if we had first went to a dentist Step 40. Well, it’s great. But it would have been better to start off. And we may have some limitations to most people have been like I pay Where’s most benefits?
covering your most benefit plans?
Yes, it is. And again, this comes down to value, right. So I would say the majority of my patients spend over and above their extended health benefits for care. That’s not the norm in every office. God, that’s the case in my eye.
We’re getting into the chiropractor’s getting into the behind the scenes.
No, no, no, but I just want to say like people, like, you know, I’ve been thinking about this lately. There’s a lot of things that are good for a lot of people. Yeah, but like, sometimes I’ll say, I’ll meet somebody and they say, Well, I went to a chiropractor and this he or she wanted me wanted me to come this off and pay this much blah, blah. Got it. He or she wanted me, right. Do you ever say hear someone say I’m holding up my iPhone. I went to you know, I went to the Apple Store and they wanted me to buy an iPhone 11. And it was $1,000. No, what do they say? I want that thing. Or they don’t say it, they want it. So if somebody comes to you, the timing is right. They want to be there, you’re never making them or selling them or anything. So I get a lot of, I don’t really know why. But more and more, I’m getting people coming to me who are already there saying, I want to, I want you to help me with this problem. And I want you to set me up on a maintenance plan. And I haven’t said anything to them. That’s the first thing that comes out of the wealth. Whereas maybe when I was I don’t know why if I was attracting differently when I was early in practice, I wasn’t having that experience. So if somebody wants something, they pay for it. If they don’t really want to be there, well, I’m going to do the minimum I’m going to come them and I’m going to pay them and I’m going to pay nothing if I can get away with it. Right. So it’s about setting up and and that’s the whole other topic. YouTube and Facebook and emails is getting people to understand it and have an idea of it and maybe perhaps wanted see the value before they actually enter interact. So
perfect segue. We’re going to start to wrap up Yeah. How do people find your YouTube videos because you do or Facebook what’s the best way to find some stuff if they can just check out the other thing that you’re doing so
