I Just Love Living
We lost a great American this week — Roberta McCain, wife of a four-star admiral and mother of a senator, died October 12 at age 108. 108! When you think about it, she was in diapers as World War I was erupting, and lived until last week, hard to fathom. She grew up as the daughter of a rich oil entrepreneur, who raised his kids as a stay-at-home dad, unheard of at that time. They traveled the world extensively, and she could have easily lived fancy-free as a debutante or social butterfly.
But it was not her…
Thrive In Five: Three Ways The Law of Attraction Helps You Build Your Practice
Hello, everybody and welcome to Thrive in Five. I’m Dr. Dennis Perman and I’ll be your host for today. Our topic of conversation today is three ways that the Law of Attraction helps you build your practice. Now, you’ve all heard about the Law of Attraction. You saw The Secret and you’ve read the books and you’ve heard about this for a long time. And the odd thing about the Law of Attraction is nobody really knows exactly how it works. We know that if we visualize things, then we have some positive expectancy around them that something happens and nobody really understands the mechanism of it. But it seems to come down to one of two things, either when we visualize something, because thoughts are things, those visualizations go out and create stuff, and then we…
Hope, Mood and Immunity
I spotted two articles this week that pointed at a much-needed uplifting organizing principle – that developing a hopeful, upbeat mood is good for your immune system and your brain health.
Hey, I’ll take “Holidays You Didn’t Realize Existed” for 200, Alex – Saturday, October 10 was “World Mental Health Day,” and with the onslaught of pandemia, hurricanes, fires, political and racial conflict and financial woes, there’s no shortage of stress to go around. If there is a…
Thrive In Five: Whose Running Your Practice Anyway?
Welcome to this week’s Thrive In Five. Hi, I’m Dr. Bob Hoffman and today’s topic is Whose Running Your Practice Anyway?
If they shut down your practice once, they can certainly do it again. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pandemic, fear or politics, we’ve learned that your board, your mayor, your government or your federal government can decide at any time when you should be opened or you have to close. So, how can you take back control? That’s the important question. By building a business not dependent on brick and mortar, yet at the same time make sense with what you already do.
Chiropractic is a business you could…
More Than Our Thoughts And Prayers
For the last seven months we have been dealing with a health issue the likes of which we have never before seen, and it has taken a while for us to begin to wrap our minds around what is happening. I’ve attempted to redirect this column toward other subject matter, but this dilemma keeps pulling me back in, as the myriad facets of interest and opportunity continue to develop.
The sanest among us are realizing that this is not a plague, not an inevitable widespread death sentence, but rather, a…
Thrive In Five: The Two Secrets To Practice Growth
Hello, everybody, and welcome to Thrive in Five. I’m Dr. Dennis Perman, and I’ll be your host for today. You know, I’ve been a chiropractor for 43 years, and 32 of them, I have spent teaching high achievers how to help as many people as possible.

And as it turns out, there are two secrets how to grow a practice, that if you understand and master these two secrets, then you can have any size practice you want.
The first is…
What Bold Leaders Do
Ah, I had such high hopes for 2020 – an active seminar schedule, fun and enriching Winners Circle weekends, meeting my new grandson, not to mention shows, concerts, baseball games, fine dining experiences, the list of cancelled plans is long and disappointing.
I know, many had it much harder, look at me complaining that I couldn’t eat out when so many are unemployed, out of business, sick or…

Thrive In Five: Where are You Putting Your Attention?
Hello everyone, and today’s topic is where are you putting your attention? I’m Dr. Bob Hoffman and let’s dig right in. Are you looking for status as a great doctor or consistent and predictable practice growth? If your attention is on constant and never-ending improvement, well then, that is the mindset of all successful practitioners. Please recognize that beating the competition is not your goal. It’s just ego based. Beating your performance yesterday or last week or last month or last year is always the goal.
Is your attention on selling your technique or is it on selling chiropractic? So many in our profession mistakenly try to impress their patients with…
Milestones and Legacy
You may know that Friday, September 18, 2020 was the chiropractic profession’s birthday, the 125th anniversary of DD Palmer delivering the first adjustment to Harvey Lillard on Brady Street in 1895. Based on everything that led up to that momentous occasion, and the convoluted path we have taken since, it is surely a day worth noting, celebrating, and pondering where we’re headed from here.
The same day marked the passing of another kind of pioneer, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, second woman to serve on the Supreme Court and an iconic voice for gender equality and civil rights.
Milestones like birthdays and deaths matter because we have only so many…
