Dr. Shannon Helps Female Docs Grow on Remarkable Radio AM 560.

My fellow Women Chiropractors,

This is your year!

Since graduating Chiropractic school, you have most likely been existing in one mode: frazzled fast-forward! You work to treat your patients, raise your children, fit in some exercise, assist aging parents, complete your practice notes, care for your families, maintain your friendships, do the laundry, read a real book ….. then, of course, there’s the whole “building your business” thing… I think you can pencil that in on Wednesday between making dinner and preparing a health lecture!

It is nothing short of complete overwhelm! As a mother of two young children, I have lived it!
The very first thing that helped me and my practice get out of Frazzle Town, was to go back to the basics and get grounded in who I was as a doctor and why I became one in the first place.

I believe one of the most important questions that you need to answer in order to find any level of success is “What is my WHY?” What is the purpose, the cause, the belief that inspires you to do what you do? What fills your bucket? Sometimes the answer comes easily and other times you need it expressed like a 2X4 on the side of the head!

When the following letter arrived from my coaching client, Elizabeth, I officially received my “WHY Smack” – you know, that clubbing over the head that makes you finally say “This is why I do what I do”…..


Dear Dr. Shannon,

When I graduated Chiropractic school, I thought the sky was the limit and if I just hung up my sign, patients would flood my office. I was the valedictorian of my class and was lead to believe that if I was just a good doctor, patients would come, refer other patients to me, and spread the word about me. I truly thought it was going to be nothing but uphill. How delusional I was!

I now realize that patients discontinue care as soon as they feel slightly better and I find myself spending an obscene amount of money trying to find new patients to replace the ones that have gone missing. It is a constant race going nowhere.

As a mother of three children, I am doing this while trying to raise my kids in a way in which they NEVER feel slighted by having a working mother. HELP!

Help me stop worrying about chasing new patients. Help me have more free time while effortlessly making 6-figures. Help me stop being jealous that the doctor who ranked last in my class is making more money than me! Most importantly, help me prove to myself that I can balance both a practice and a family while actually finding time to sleep!

I don’t want to lose my passion for my job; however, the way things are going, I am reconsidering my career choice. Sorry for the long list of frustrations, but you asked!!

Sincerely, Elizabeth


Not only did I intimately relate to Elizabeth’s frustrations (I had lived them daily in my own practice and life for many years), but through her letter, I also relived my own gut-wrenching experiences of practice building that kept me awake many nights in those early years.

But, I also smiled at her letter. Not because it is funny (far from it), but because I knew immediately that I could help her. Because I have been where she has been and I’ve built my practice (twice!) from the ground up, on solid strategies and techniques that work. And, I knew I could help her do it quickly, without the setbacks and obstacles I experienced.

If Elizabeth’s story hits home with you too, then you are in the right place at the right time. As women, we take on an incredible amount of responsibility, convincing ourselves that we can do it, all of it, mostly on our own. The good news is that we don’t have to do it all and we don’t have to do it on our own!

My “WHY” is seeing women doctors like Elizabeth go from feeling helpless to feeling empowered, confident, and UNSTUCK in a very short period of time. Watching my clients double their practices, triple their referrals, and still be at their child’s soccer game on-time and truly present is what fills my bucket!

I want to help you do the same thing.

I can help you realize your practice dreams by giving you practical, proven, easy-to-implement strategies that will allow you to:

  • Increase your number of ideal patients and quickly triple your referrals
  • Create a solid marketing plan that allows your practice to market itself
  • Accelerate the making of a life-long customer
  • Control your time so you can live a more balanced life while making more money
  • Build limitless loyalty that creates patients for life
  • Integrate the most-effective practice building tools that give you the most bang for your buck
  • Spend more focused time on yourself and your family

Now is the time to stop rehearsing for the juggling Olympics and get your life and your practice on track!

No worries if you are not yet ready to take that step. You can get more acquainted with me and how I can help you move forward with my “FREE 5-day coaching course”

Finding Your Referral Catch-Phrase!

BY Burke Shannon Posted on September 09 2014

As a physician, especially if you are a new physician, so much of the procrastination that comes with asking for a referral is mental.  Yep, mental.  These are just some of the thoughts that go through our heads when we're about to ask a satisfied patient for a referral: Oh my…

Productivity on Steroids!

BY Burke Shannon Posted on August 26 2014

We all know the deal ...writing down our goals and peeking at them periodically greatly increases the chances of us actually accomplishing them. And we all have the best of intentions to list them out, check them off, and skyrocket our productivity. In the real world; however, the list ends…
