Hey Doc, welcome to the simplified integration podcast. My name is Dr. Andrew Wells and this is episode zero. There's always a story.
Speaker 2: (00:11)
Leonardo da Vinci once said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and I agree. You see the problem with the way that most consulting groups approach medical integration is anything but simple. In fact, it's the exact opposite. It's expensive, it's complicated and quite frankly it's exhausting. Enough is enough. There are far too many amazing integrated clinics that are struggling. Well, I'm on a mission to change that. What I've come to find from over five years working with integrative practices is that simplicity really is the secret. The old saying of less is more is true. Through a streamlined approach, I was able to create multiple successful seven-figure integrated clinics and now I'm going to show you how you can do the same. Join me as I share with you the secrets to successful medical integration and practice growth. Join me on a journey to greater sophistication through innovation. I'm Dr. Andrew Wells and welcome to the simplified integration podcast.
Speaker 1: (01:08)
Hey doc. First and foremost, welcome to the simplified integration podcast. I'm thrilled to have you on here and I want to give you a little bit of an introduction on where this podcast came from, why it was created, and most importantly, how you can get value from listening to this podcast. So when my wife and I first opened our practice, we started, we moved to a city in Western North Carolina and we live in the mountains and we moved here specifically to be close to the outdoors. And so I love, I love trail running. I love mountain biking, I just love to be outside. And I remember our first two years in practice, we look back and I can count on one hand the number of times I'd been running and biking and camping and being outside. Like we had literally no life outside of our practice.
Speaker 1: (01:49)
And really it wasn't just the first two years. The first two years were rough, but it was really the first five years we were so focused on our practice. We had like, we had no friends, we weren't going out on like my wife and I weren't going on dates. Like none of the stuff that we love doing because we're so focused on taking care of our patients and our practice. And that was like, that was number one. And after a couple of years I realized like, I really don't want to do that for the rest of my life. And I knew there had to be a different way. And that's why the simplified integration podcast was born. And so we tried, we tried everything in our practice. We, to give you a little background, like we ran a cash chiropractic office, we did medical integration, we did STEM cell therapy, neuropathy, weight loss.
Speaker 1: (02:27)
We even tried doing functional medicine. And so we had a lot of success and we grew multiple offices, but we also had a ton of failure. And I really want, the reason for this podcast was I want to share with you my successes and my highs, but also like we had some like bring you to your knees, uh, failures. And so I really want you to be able to learn from my successes and my failures so that you can implement these things simply into your practice, into your home life, to give you a better life. And that's why this podcast was born. Now I really want this to be interactive. So if you're listening, if you have a question, if you have a topic you want me to talk about, I would love to hear from you. Just send me an email@example.com. So info and integration secrets.com.
Speaker 1: (03:09)
So if you love me, if you hate me, uh, just let me know what you're thinking. I'd love to be this for this to be a two way street. Now, the format of this podcast, I'm going to be releasing an episode every week. Sometimes it's just going to be me. Sometimes we'll have some guest doctors and some, some thought leaders, uh, on the podcast so that you can, uh, I really want this to be relevant to you today in your practice and personal life. And I try to make these episodes as short as possible. So I'll give you some little bite sized nuggets. Most episodes are about 12 to 15 minutes long, so you can listen to this on your way to work. You can listen to this when you're working out or during your lunch break. So every week I want to provide you some amazing valuable content that you can use to make your life better.
Speaker 1: (03:48)
Now the first five episodes, uh, in this podcast are, is actually a series called the seven figure shortcut. So wanting to give you the overall arching philosophy and structure behind what we're going to be talking about. Uh, so you can really start implementing this stuff today in your practice. And this is all, this podcast is all about business strategy. So in chiropractic you have your clinical side and you have your business side. I love both, but there also should be a blend of those two. But I really get excited about the business strategy part. So that's primarily what we're gonna be talking about on this podcast moving forward and a little bit more about me. So I, I share with you, I love being outside. Uh, I also have a family. I'm married. I have two young boys. Uh, right now they're three and four years old and they're a blast.
Speaker 1: (04:32)
I'm a total like family guy. I love spending time with my kids. And that was like a lot of this change happened when my wife and I first had our family. And when I was growing up, like I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and my dad growing up was really never around. And uh, cause he was working, he was running a small business and he was like, he wasn't like a big part of my life growing up. And, uh, I remember I knew why he was doing that. And he, you know, thankfully provided us with, uh, you know, food, shelter, clothing, a good education. But I knew he was working really hard. And when we, when we first had our family, I realized that I didn't, uh, I, I recognize that my dad worked very hard for us, but I didn't want to be, uh, an absentee father.
Speaker 1: (05:13)
And so I wanted to structure my life where I could be really successful financially and help a lot of people, but also be there for the people who, uh, economy the most, my wife and my kids. And so that's like, that's where my passion comes from. That's really what I want to help you. And maybe you don't have a family. Maybe you do, but these secrets I'm going to share with you will help you in all areas of your life. And that's what I really get geeked up geeked out about. So that's, we're going to be sharing on this podcast. So Hey doc, thank you so much for joining us.
