For What Am I Thankful?

It’s Thanksgiving Day and I’m at an airport. I’ve been up since 2:45a local time. I am traveling for work. But I am not complaining because I love doing what I do. I love the impact that I’m making through business. And I have wanderlust, so I love any chance I have to get in a car or on a plane. For many years, my brother and sisters have compared me to Nicholas Cage’s character […]

Welcome to 2019!

What Have I Been Doing? It’s interesting how many people are introspective at the end of each year. It’s also interesting how so many people develop corresponding “resolutions” because of that introspection.  According to the Washington Post, 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. That, to me, is a positive. (There is ample evidence that shows that less than 3% of Americans actually write down their goals.) However, according to an old Forbes article, “Just

You can read about the companies I’m building and the content development with each below: Impact Physician – Here is the Impact Physician Blog.

What is Regenerative Health Management and Why Does It Matter?

Regenerative health management is the active, on-going process of helping the body heal itself. This process considers the regenerative properties of the human body, not simply a checklist of therapies, drugs, or surgeries. Unfortunately, the relatively new field of regenerative medicine is already falling into the old traps of checklists and high priced surgeries. What’s continuing to exacerbate the problems surrounding the field of regenerative medicine is not having the primary care physicians involved. Regenerative

Time Management Issues: Email

“The Death of Email” is something that’s been foretold for over 10 years now. And whether you love it or hate it, email is not going anywhere. Not any time soon, however. There are other tools that have come along and tried to supplant email, but at this point, these programs are merely supplemental tools. Albeit, very good tools. We use email for external communications. For internal communications and collaboration, there are 2 main tools

Pursuing Your Righteous Path as an Impact Physician

Being an impact physician is not about “changing the world” or “pursuing your passion.” It’s very much different from either of those misguided notions… As you may well know by now, being an impact capitalist is about using business ownership to make an impact, or a meaningful difference, in the lives of others. As an impact physician, that is done coupled with the art of healing. But how do we, as impact capitalists and impact

The Impact Physician Give-Greed Continuum

*This post is revised from previously published Give/Greed post to emphasize Impact Physicians and healthcare – there is more info in that blog – so check it out We’re necessarily looking to “change the world.” At least not in the sense that everyone else talks about it. There are many people trying to “change the world” and many more teachers, pastors, coaches, business leaders, and politicians, to name just a few, who are encouraging others to

Stealing Medicine Back

  Medicine has been stolen. It has been hijacked. And we need to steal it back! Is it really that bad? We think it is much worse than people realize. For example, there are advances in regenerative medicine (where we are building our impact capitalist business, RHM) that are being confined and locked in to this hijacked model. And that will ultimately hurt patients and physicians seeking to make life better. So, who stole it?

Build the Process before you can Trust the Process

No Matter How Difficult, We Must Trust the Process Instead of trying to see the end, embrace the current struggle, create a process and follow it. Starting a new business can be very easy. Developing and growing a business is very hard. Especially if you don’t have a process to follow. “Trust the Process” is a phrase that great coaches tell their players, fans, and the media. But what does this mean? It means having

Learning from the Past to Impact the Future

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana Welcome to 2018! I don’t know about you, but I am very excited to put 2017 in the past and move on to making an impact on 2018 and beyond. About 18 months ago, I went to a conference at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The keynote speaker, originally from Senegal, spoke about how she was trying to preserve
