This is the third post I’ve done on our favorite books for practitioners. You find the other two here and here. 1. Essentialism by Greg McKeown This was one of my favorite books last year. I love the idea of doing more by doing less, and this is the best book I’ve read on learning to focus on […]

5 (More) Books Every Practitioner Should Read

Some time ago we listed 7 books we thought every practitioner should read. Of course, we read a lot of books, so we’ve discovered a lot of great new ones since then. Here are five more (well, really six if you count the pair) that have made a difference for us. None are specific to […]

The Practitioner’s Journey: The Path to Practice Success

On June 21, 2010, in books, by Dan

Many moons ago we set out to write a book. One that would help all CAM practitioners, from acupuncturists and chiropractors to massage therapists and energy workers, get what they really want from their practices. A book that would help struggling practitioners get unstuck, find balance, and make a decent living. Today I get to […]

Top of Everyone's Mind: Reconnecting With Missing Clients

On June 10, 2010, in books, practice marketing, repeat business, your patients, by Dan

Sometimes, clients just appear on your mental radar. They pop into your mind out of the blue, and you think, “Gee. I wonder what happened to so-and-so?” They might have been in active treatment, but have since dropped off, or recovered from a condition and haven’t been back since. Whatever the reason, it happens, and […]

A Great (and Free!) Practice Growth Book

On March 17, 2010, in books, online resources, your practice website, by Dan

When we started this blog (four years ago today!) we were also working on a book. I thought it would be my next book, but then along came Escape 101. And then The Secret Language of Money, a collaboration that included our good friend and Go-Giver co-author John David Mann. And, of course, along the […]

7 Books Every Practitioner Should Read

On July 28, 2008, in books, by Dan

I credit much of our good fortune in practice (and other things) thus far to a voracious appetite for learning, especially via books. Summer’s here for our part of the planet, and Tara and I both tend to increase our book consumption a little more than usual. Here are a few of the books that […]

Practice versus Business

On March 7, 2007, in books, strategy and philosophy, by Dan

I came across a tidbit today that does a great job of describing the difference between running a business and running a holistic practice.

I just finished Lisa Rohleder’s book, The Remedy: Integrating Acupuncture into American Health Care. I’d discovered her book and Working Class Acupuncture, via the Integrator Blog a while back, and she was kind enough to shoot me a copy of the book to review. If you’re NOT an acupuncturist, let me grab you before you […]
