Comment Chiropractic Conundrum

Hello my faithful and friendly followers. I think there are about 2 of you all together and I have neglected you most severely. That is because I changed my stars!! Not only did I pass a test, get a producers license in Health/Life insurance, and get a grown up job that makes 3 times what my sweet husband makes, but I finished writing one of my books. My focus was on that stuff.....but hey, here I am. Regretfully my book isn't about chiropractic at all!! It is being published this month under my pen name and it's not a book that is socially kosher.

Surprised? I don't just muse about being a Chiropractor's Wife you know! When one is well adjusted the sky is the limit!!!

So I came here to do some housekeeping and provide you with a well deserved entry! First of all let me tell you, I moderate the comments and there must be a glitch because there are so many that I am drowning in them and had no notice that they even existed! I approved most of them but man, oh man, really? If you want to publicize your practice I am 100% for it but I'd rather you just do it, not try to sneak it in compliments! I see right through it. Busted!! I see you!! It's annoying!

As for you positive "Look at me, I am so rich from chiropractic. I worked my ass off and ignored losers like you to get to where I am." I appreciate those too. I really do. You deserve all the success and we deserve the business education you have to offer when you tell us in your spirited comments that only 5% of small businesses make it no matter what field you go into. Yes. Thank you. Thank you so much. Listen, it isn't okay. Those facts are completely unacceptable. It is not okay that modern chiropractors are in such a gross amount of debt due to the cost of education. An education that costs that much would do well to take some of that profit and purchase educational programs so that people like my husband had a shot. The secret is out! People... follow your bliss. If that bliss is chiropractic, win the lotto first.

Since you are busy and a tad lazy like me, I will once again explain the point of this blog. This blog exists to share my experience as a Chiropractors Wife. I tell you everything in hopes that you will avoid this for yourself. My story is not unique or is THE MAJORITY. If you want to ignore my story and others like it, go ahead. I sleep well at night either way. Perhaps the unique thing I will admit, is that our marriage is still in tact. Now that is rare whether you marry a woman chiropractor or a man!!

As per our 2013 tax return the Mobile Chiropractic business we started in September made $850.00. I think that is great!! So far for 2014 it hasn't made a penny. My husband teaching chemistry full time obviously deflects the time and attention from that endeavor resulting in less money. A no brainer. From experience, we prefer this situation to putting all the time and talent into the chiropractic only to be living in poverty. No thanks. His overhead to maintain his license, insurance, gasoline, and CE credits will use every penny that this mobile chiropractic has brought in. So alas, it is an expensive, but rewarding hobby. Family can depend on him for a lifetime of relief for free. It makes us feel really good at night but it doesn't pay the bills. My husband got into that field to help people, AND make money.

I have just decided my next post will be my survey results. You guys are going to LOVE it. I actually have to buy the results since the responses grossly outnumbered my free 100 response limit. When I upgrade my account, I'll be able to access every one of them to accurately make each one count. The results totally, completely, and utterly validate my entire blog. I can't wait to show you!!!
