Your practice won't get healthier than you.
If you tend to live beyond your means at home, your relationship with fees is likely to be unhealthy.
If there are taboo topics at home, there are subjects never to be discussed at the practice.
If things are disordered around the house, you probably lack discipline and attention to detail in the practice.
If you tend to micromanage your children, you're likely to mistrust patients and helicopter over them.
If you show up dictatorial at home, you're more inclined to issue doctor's orders rather than collaborate and create patient partnerships.
If you're risk adverse at home, you're likely to find practice growth too scary or unsustainable.
Most constraints to practice growth have little to do with chiropractic. Because how we show up for anything, is usually how we show up for everything.
It's why personal development is the key to practice development.
