DR. BRETT AXELROD, ELMSFORD NY

Q. What path brought you to ChiroDestiny?

A: I love to share what I’ve learned with other chiropractors. I want to see other DC's be able to reach their full potential. Rick and I became good friends and shared a vision of creating a coaching company together to create hope and inspiration for our colleagues.

Q. What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?

A. I am known professionally for teaching a daily routine called the HOUR OF POWER. It consists of having written goals, saying affirmations and doing visualizations/meditations on a daily basis to reprogram your subconscious mind to a successful and empowering mindset. I have a knack for inspiring and motivating chiropractors out of a slump and off of a plateau to a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to practice again.

Q.What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your clients? 

A. The one problem I am best at solving is helping DC's to create empowering belief systems from limiting belief systems and to create the necessary state management to handle any challenge in their life personally and professionally. 

Q. Who have you worked with in the past? And what have you done for them?

A. I have worked with chiropractors from all walks of life from the start up to the doctor seeing 800 visits/week. I help them to get clear about what the next phase of their life, both personally and professionally, could look like and then help them design the action steps to manifest it.

Q. What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy?

A. Personally, I am passionate about staying in great shape and being really fit. I am also a vegetarian as well. I love playing basketball especially against younger kids and having the ability to not only keep up, but continue to beat them based on experience. I also love spending time with my wife and 2 daughters. I get great pride in watching my two girls work through academic challenges, and then watching their self-esteem grow. It’s been a fascinating journey watching them mature into young woman. Kudos to my amazing wife, Jill.

Q. Why would someone not want to work with you?

A. Someone would not want to work with me if they are not prepared to do whatever it takes to succeed. If they going into the coaching relationship half-heartedly and not prepared to work harder on themselves than they do on their practice.

Q.What is your grand, audacious goal? What do you wish people would know, believe, do?

A. My grand, audacious goal is to build ChiroDestiny into the premiere Coaching and Success company and become completely financially independent so I can help as many DCs as possible, and go wherever I want to with whomever I want to. I wish people would believe that all success and prosperity comes from who they are and that they have all the control in the world once they learn to change their thinking, create a feeling of expectancy, and take inspired action.

DR. RICK MARKSON, N. MIAMI BEACH FL

Q. What path brought you to ChiroDestiny?

A: From the first time we met in 1997, it was “Bro-mance” at first site.  Brett and I knew that we wanted to help chiropractors grow personally and professionally. We do this through our own brand of “Edu-tainment”

Q. What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?

A.   I have been raised in chiropractic and success philosophy since I was born. I knew from the age of 6 that I was going to follow in my dad’s footsteps as a chiropractor. I performed in musical theatre through high school and sang in a band in college. I use those stage skills in my practice and my coaching to keep audiences engaged, entertained, and helping them to see what’s possible.

Q.What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your clients? 

A. I would say I’m best at building rapport with all personality types. My goal is to help people fulfill THEIR goals. I have no judgment or ego behind my coaching. It is all about them. Each coaching client becomes a part of my family, and my family is my highest value.

Q. Who have you worked with in the past? And what have you done for them?

A. I have coached hundreds of doctors and CA’s and I have spoken in front of tens of thousands. If I even had a little impact that allowed those people to become more self-aware, so they were able to turn their weaknesses into strengths, I did my job.

Q. What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy?

A. My highest values are family, friends, and passion. I love contributing to others, both in practice and in coaching. I love to work on my weaker areas. I love to set goals and achieve them. I love to use my creativity to help others break through. I’m most passionate about experiences. I don’t care much about material things. I am more about sharing experiences with the people I love.

Q.What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your clients?

I feel a personal responsibility whenever possible to have a positive influence on those doctors in our profession who have the potential of impacting the health and well-being of this world.

DR. SUSAN MITCHELL, BLOOMINGTON IL

Q. What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?

A. As a coach I have a real knack for helping my clients define and create their most authentic, fearless selves.  I can quickly identify what is limiting their success.  I think so many of us are trying to balance work, family and so many other obligations, that we forget why we are even doing what we are doing. We get so into our to do lists that we forget to live and consciously create our lives. That is where I come in.

I am also known for not having a filter.  I call it as I see it but very much from a place of love and support!

Find the cause and do the work to reduce the interference to the life of your dreams.  I really think it is that simple.

In practice, I am known for my high volume, pediatric practice.  I am known for speaking up for children's health.  I feel like I am our children's voice.  I have delivered Chiropractic care and educated parents for 2 decades on how to keep their children healthy naturally from conception throughout their lifetime.  I believe every parent deserves to know the true effects of subluxation, vaccines, medications, and the poor food choices they are making for their family and that job lands on our shoulders as Chiropractors.

Q. What's the one problem you are best at solving for clients?

A. I can see through the limiting beliefs and help my clients see where they are holding themselves back.  I help people to see they can juggle it all and create an amazing life full of success, love, great relationships, and a great family life!

Q.What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy?    

A. I am an awareness junkie.  I love to be self aware and help others have their own awarenesses to help them get unstuck in their life. I am very passionate about helping clients and parents make empowered, conscious decisions for their businesses and for their families.

Q. Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? 

A. I love to be outside in nature. Relaxing at the beach, hiking the mountains, or a glass of wine on a nice patio...I am in.

Q.What is your grand, audacious goal? What do you wish people would know, believe, do?

A. I would love to see every man woman and child living their most authentic life.  I want to help people break through their "follow the herd" mentality and just be the best and happiest version of themselves. I think most people are told how to live from the second they enter this world. I want to give people the tools to create all THEY desire in every aspect of their life.

DR. Bryan Wills, Rochelle IL

Q. What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?

A. Professionally, I am known for having a very high patient visit average (PVA). I am very passionate about living the chiropractic lifestyle and connecting with patients. Most doctors that I coach believe that patient education is the only way to move people from symptom care to wellness. However, while I believe that education is a must, I think a far more important and ignored aspect is relationship building. Patients will follow doctors that they like and respect. Your patient education falls on deaf ears if you don’t have relationships built with your patients. That is where I come in.

Q. What's the one problem you are best at solving for clients?

A. One of my strengths is helping chiropractors to see that most of the time, the glass ceiling they are consistently running into is simply a projection of their own fears and limiting beliefs onto their patients. Once those are identified, we can replace those beliefs with empowering ones and stop the projecting. Only then can chiropractors experience the practice success they were meant to have.

Q.What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy?    

A. I am very passionate about my family. I’ve been married for 17 years and have two young kids. Traveling and making memories with them is something I cherish. I am also passionate about helping others learn the success principles that I have picked up over the years from my own mentors. Whether through my practice, coaching, or serving on our school board, I want others to have the chance to chase all the success they desire.

Q. Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? 

A. When I’m not working you can usually find me at our lake house with the family, on the golf course, or manning the grill with a cold drink.

Q.What is your grand, audacious goal? What do you wish people would know, believe, do?

A. My grand, audacious goal would be to expand my influence on the chiropractic profession by creating multiple offices in our area and by coaching chiropractors around the world. If each and every chiropractor truly understands that everything they could ever want is on the other side of their fear, our profession would become the dominant force in healthcare that it should be. As a wise man once said, “It’s all in your head!”

A. My grand audacious goal is to show Chiropractic Assistants that this job is NOT just a stepping stone for them. This can be their career and a calling just like it is for the chiropractors. I wish people knew that if they believed in themselves more and put positive energy into everything they did personally and professionally, then amazing things would happen.
