Big Pharma is Getting Some Payback! 

The former CEO (Doud) and the Chief Compliance Officer of one of the nation’s top 10 drug distributors have been arrested and formally charged for ‘conspiracy to violate narcotics laws, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and willfully failing to file suspicious order reports.’ Can you say “FINALLY!” And maybe follow that up with “right on! Keep ‘em coming!” They handcuffed these criminals and took them to jail!

The Rochester Drug Co-operative, which is the name of the distributor involved, has also been charged by the government. This marks the very first time executives from either a Big Pharma distributor or a Big Pharma manufacturer have been charged for the massive destruction and huge loss of life they have directly caused. This, I’m certain, has Big Pharma quaking in their boots. 

Certainly, the Sackler family, the owners of the company that makes Oxycontin, should be scared penniless. Won’t it be a tiny amount of satisfaction to the surviving family members and loved ones of so many opioid victims to see the executives and owners of these companies that have preyed upon so many people by lying, falsifying and outright criminal behavior? 

Wayne sent me this link yesterday which has more details for those of you with inquiring minds: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/former-ceo-major-drug-distribution-company-first-face-criminal-charges-n997571

With you being on the front lines of this battle to combat the evil that’s been perpetuated by Big Pharma, you will likely appreciate what was just done with the formal charges and arrests. I sure do! Having visited some of the Salvation Army adult treatment centers over the last 2 years and witnessing the ravaging effects of opioids, frankly I’m ecstatic that some measure of justice is finally being served. These drug companies and distributors have been acting like common drug dealers while on the surface looking like responsible executives. In my humble opinion, the drug distributors need to be shut down. They exist, again in my opinion, to allow the Big Pharma drug manufacturers to insulate themselves from selling their drugs to whomever has cold, hard cash. Eliminating the distributors exposes Big Pharma by allowing complete transparency on where their drugs are shipped. 

The incredible, non-drug, state of the art care you provide to the patients we serve is exemplary. I thank you, each and every one of you, for the dedication you bring to your offices every day, fighting a massive battle to get the word out that says “We can help. Opioids aren’t the answer. Come, experience the very best in chiropractic and rehab!”

I hope you are having a great day, as initiated by a great Morning Priming routine. Let’s continue our fast-paced growth and finish out an amazing month!

A little focus for your FRIDAY!

Hello All!

mental adjustment delivered by “The Friday Focus,” which is a brief list of what I’m thinking about, learning about, or doing right now in the pursuit of happiness, health and longevity. I hope you find it useful!

Very Interesting Book Discovered By Complete Mistake: Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life.  Two weeks ago, I quickly ordered 2 books on Amazon. In my haste, this book was ordered instead of a book on tapping, which I found an interesting topic. While in the air at 35,000 feet, I started reading this book, hoping to learn about the technique called tapping. Instead, this book started talking about interpreting dreams. Wow, when applying the information to dreams in the following days, it seems spot on. The result? More mental clarity and an overall sense of calm which comes on immediately after spending merely a little time reviewing the most recent dream. Totally unexpected! If you could benefit from increased calmness or clarity, you’ll like this read.

Extremely Effective Sleep Aid: This one has been kept secret for the last 3 months because it has helped my lifelong insomnia so much, I was waiting for it to stop working. It continues to work amazingly well and is now part of my daily sleep ritual. It’s a Fisher-Wallace Stimulator, which is a transcranial stimulation device that is FDA cleared for the treatment of insomnia and depression. You can order it direct under a DC license. Yep, it feels weird for the 20 minutes you use it, which is now about every 3 days. In the last 3 months, I’ve slept far better than in any time in many, many years. Look it up. Research it. If you have sleep issues, you may want to try it. Or you may want to try it just to say you’ve shot current through your brain and lived! Two thumbs up!

Wonderful Quote to Sit and Ponder: In Order To Succeed We Must First Believe We Can. Nikos Kazantzakas. And we can program ourselves to believe we can succeed at something, but that’s fodder to a different day.

As always, please let me know your requests and suggestions on Twitter. Which focus point above is your favorite? What do you want to know about? Just send a tweet to @Christomshack and put the #TheFridayFocus in there so it can be easily found.

The Friday Focus

Hello All!

This is your bi-weekly mental adjustment delivered by “The Friday Focus,” which is a brief list of what I’m thinking about, learning about, or doing right now in the pursuit of happiness and health.

Book I'm reading -
‘The Difference’, by Subir Chowdhury, is a short but amazingly wise message on constructing a great business and a great life. He attacks the notion that ‘good enough is good enough’. In fact, he says that “good enough isn’t enough!”  He shows you how to easily eliminate your “whining time” so that you have more happiness and success. Along that line, he carefully and brilliantly shows you the four-step system to build a caring mindset; all designed to help you live your life’s dream. This book is simply incredible and will make a wonderful addition to your hard copy or digital library.


What I'm doing to relax and focus -
Outdoor meditation in bare feet. I cycle between the Headspace and Inner Balance apps.

What I'm eating -
I was grabbing a protein bar a few months back and lo and behold, the shelf was stacked with Quest Bars. Boy, how I’m tired of eating Quest Bars. Sure, they have lots of flavors but I wanted something with less protein since I’m ketogenic. I ordered some Bulletproof Vanilla Shortbread collagen protein bars. They are perfect for the healthy ketogenic way of life. 12 grams of protein and 14 grams of healthy fats with minimal carbs. I love them and they’re my go-to bar along with 2 others we’ll talk about in the future. They are temporarily out of stock but you can get them here when they’re back in stock.

Quote that I love -
“You have enemies? Good.  That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” Sir Winston Churchill

New gadget I'm using -
We all know that a wallet in your back pocket is just plain stupid. But what are the alternatives? Using one of those black clip things not only looks bad, but it kind of makes you feel cheap. And the metal pocket money clip caused unsightly permanent marks on my jeans. Look no further. Serman makes a wonderful front pocket leather wallet that looks and feels great. It’s the perfect gift for you or your spouse, with plenty of room for your cash, credit cards and license. Here’s the one I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IGFHE54/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ted: The FINAL Chapter

Things are cooking. Ted has a new found passion and zest, both for his business and his family. As he builds his business, he is systematically creating more money and TIME for his family. He does this by implementing our non-personality dependent business techniques: by recreating himself in others, in other words, leverage.

The first week of July found Ted in this scenario: 6 more new clients (his goal used to be 5 a MONTH), launching a new reactivation campaign for females only, hanging dry erase boards to list goals, chart progress toward them, and list team celebrations, he’s drinking 3 green drinks a day now in addition to green tea, and he’s conceptualized his Christmas in July promotion. This was a huge week.

The second week of July sees Ted with 6 more new clients yet again. Remember, he’s probably the most expensive trainer in Ohio. He’s looking for another trainer to facilitate more growth and ensure he does not have to train new clients, and he’s down to training about 4 clients a week himself. He is meeting with the direct mail company RSVP to do a direct mail campaign. This is similar to Val-Pak but much higher end (we’re working on this right now too). He bought a house for his Dad to rent from him and he paid cash for it (his idea, not mine. I would have counseled not to use cash). He started working on a direct mail campaign to attract attorneys as clients and he sent out another batch of reactivation letters. Another week in the books and he crushed it. His trend is skyrocketing after 5.5 months of blocking and tackling implementation, which means implementing correctly the fundamentals of business growth.

I sincerely hope you have enjoyed reading about Ted’s journey. All the lessons and the activities for growth are directly transferable to your practice, albeit with some tweaking. The great news is that in HealthSource, we have all these already done and ready for you to implement. So I ask you, why wait? Why not do things vastly differently from this day forward and construct, from embryonic stage forward, the practice and lifestyle of your dreams. Nothing is stopping you but you, and you can evolve.

Questions? Shoot me an email. No one is destined for mediocrity. Choose greatness!!

All the best to you!
