"That Rehab. It was like they. Had you know extension machines? They had pulled down machines. They're doing my little thera- band exercises on this kind staff and I'm doing that's great. That's not how I WANNA practice in. A none of the cameras even had a spare space to do this and they were all you know. Maximum fifteen minute visits all pass the treatments with like maybe you should do. Some exercise thrown in at the end was the best version. You're getting right and so I kinda went now like I wanna be a movement guy. I won't actually have space. So if someone comes in and they say it only hurts when I when I do a snatch barbells Nash or kettlebells natural. It only hurts when I do handstands or something. I don't want to have to go. Oh crap rearrange a slanting walk out there. They'll do it right now and so I knew exactly what I wanted to open place. Right out of school called Vallejo Clinic Still there now. I don't practice there anymore But still helps the great place. Great Staff I was just I just so happened to be timing wise kind of on the front on the Front of the wave surfing the wave as it was coming in when a lot of my kind of practitioner. We're starting to graduate from school or starting to change practice. I I haven't benefit from being one of the first people in town that actually knew how to coach people through good move and actually knew how to observe movement and I actually had the culture of my office where people didn't come to me expecting a snap crack in a little bit of rubbing. They came to me expecting to get in the mood with them. So that was a really big part of how I wanted the practice and I didn't see any Gives you got to do it myself? And I didn't so we really easy for me. Honestly Easy Starting Your Business is never easy but it was an obvious choice for me because I literally went around to anyone. That looked like they were doing remotely close to that. No one was doing what I wanted and again. We're we're doing this thing ourselves again. We're talking with Dr Benjamin Stevens. He's a chiropractic physician in Canada from what you've described Change in culturing and chiropractic schools kind of generation or by decade. Whatever it is and you kind of came out right at the forefront of one which potentially helped or made you successful in your first business and I know from looking at your website and the fact that I first became aware of you by reading one of your blog posts is you didn't just settle the say. I'm going to be the best. Physicians are the best physician in my town. You've gone beyond that and worked on the education aspect. You mentioned that a significant portion of your income right now comes from educating others. Why the switch? Or how did you do the transition? Was that a conscious choice or did you kind of realize this is what I enjoy. In one day you woke up and said Oh wow. I'm doing multiple things rather than just having a chiropractic practice Honestly a lot of it fell into my lap. I always the not always. That's not fair. Once I found my groove I really what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. Even when I was in Chiropractic College Sports Council time at home arrests Was Two thirds of student. Automation was involved in Sports Council There is there is years that we did like eighty events or something they just ludicrous announce events and I was there during the heyday of it. And I even had I had. The president of the school will literally come to me. And say you need to be the guy running organization like because it's a student organization. He said you need to be guy running this You know for various reasons Good idea and I'm very fortunate that I've been involved in so many different things that mostly opportunities like that. But I've had people come to me. I haven't gone out of my way to say no. I'm going to be an educator I'm going to be professionally important on the Internet out but literally when I graduated from school. The first learning opportunities for teaching opportunity came Within a year because I moved back to Canada I just so happened to have one of my great mentors. Stephen Capital Bianco was the medical director for rock. At the time and rock tape was just getting started. In Canada. This led to that He essentially called the person who is in charge of Canada incentive. You need instructors call Ben and I just graduated from school and six months after school. They called me and said we need you to instruct courses all across the country and serve the sign me up off. Figure this stuff out And I didn't I loved I loved years mytalk for tape and it was amazing being involved in that kind of got you know. Got My teeth sunk into it a little bit and that was one aspect of it and then another part is I was constantly educating myself. Not with the goal of teaching. I was just going to seminar after seminar after seminar and the biggest company in Canada Western candidate time that was during these seminars was Semitic senses education. Run by a now. One of my best friend seems Mike LAXA AND HE I in literally. I remember the day I went to a seminar in Calgary which was a eight hour drive to get there. I will do seminar in Calgary. I walked into the room. You and your teaching a seminar right. I cannot even talking about it. Goes like ankeny like you know half the stuff and he literally like you shouldn't even be here right and this was only about two or three years after school but I done about two hundred hours of continuing Edgar Year every year for the first three or four and a lot. It's because of just so thirsty and so curious. Ooh There's so much more than still such an idiot. I didn't need to know more. I I need to get good at this and so You know this led to that and Mike like I said. He's still a great friend of mine and a great practitioner a few years later because he got to know each other and became a good friend. Illegally called me enough when Saturday morning. Five or six years ago. I need I need a business. Partner was not extensive. Need someone to help me. Run this to help on the show and I think he'd be the perfect person I said. Sweet signed me up not even knowing how it's GonNa make a dollar doing it because they're just passionate about education and so that kind of once you get against deeply involved enough opportunities leads. Opportunities leads opportunities selena teaching for several different companies. Taught some you know. Major teams organizations both privately and publicly in In a lot of it is I think at this point. I'm realizing that a professional teacher is actually highly needed Because I think there's a lot of people who they practice for a long time and they think that there's something special so they I should probably drop probably wish reform but some of them are just horrible teachers right and some of them aren't meant to teach meant to be at their job right and there's nothing wrong with that and then there's other people who they're great at their job but they're gift is taking the complexities of their job or the complexities of what they and making it. Extremely teachable People and I realized being business for awhile that there are only a few of those that are actually really phenomenal. Teachers really phenomenal educators. You know at at the reason. I say a few because we forced hundreds of seminars in the last few years and honestly there's probably less than ten who I would look at them and say that's a true professional educator like they borrow up there and I'm trying to develop them right in so big part of what I'm trying to do now is become a really good educator tire kind of popularity contest more Is actually another job. It's you know who's WHO's GONNA getting a followers online and I'm okay with that. I don't play that game at all. I just I don't I don't care too and really hadn't heard me but I just don't care. I honestly I only teach stuff. I want each only Right stuff that I wanNA rice and the vast majority of the time although six times without writing and then I'll just be like all right. This thank Kinda like with long post that you that you right if you look it was probably that before everything and so education is Kinda fall into my lap. And I'm taking it and run with it. I love. I love teaching. It's it's one of my favorite things I get to do. I think whether consciously or unconsciously you've identified one of the reasons I started moving to live in fact you said you know essentially it's a popularity contest and we both know any anybody who's listening you know if you put a scantily clad women up there or a guy who's ripped Doing exercises whether it's a good exercise or not that it's going to get lots of likes if you put up something that's maybe dry but has good information most people are. GonNa Blip over it and the problem is there's so much misinformation out there that the people who are doing it the right way like you often don't get the attention not because they deserve not to get the attention but because they're like look. I'm going to do my job. I'm going to be the best at it and the people who need to know we're GonNa find me which is which is good which is a good message to give. I think in the long term. Yeah you know like I don't. I don't hold anything against anyone that wants to play in the popularity contests. I really don't because if you WANNA have a big impact on world gets game you have to play and I have no qualms with that I the only thing I have calls with people playing that game. That don't actually have anything to get ready. And there are people who are who who are excellent at boast right and I have those are the people that I look up to where I go. You managed to play the popularity game to a T. You're winning that game and you're really truly excellent at your job and you know your stuff inside and out In your excellent educated and like I love those people but like I said I think there's less than ten of those that I've heard of it because I know so many people that I've seen them online and I even get pulled into it because I rented education company now. I bring seminars into Canada. We've got three seven of plan for twenty twenty so I bring people in from all around the World Canada for these seminars. I can't county at Mount Zion. Is that I kind of got pulled into someone's social media game lead to bring him in for in Person Seminar Ono this guy's And the reality is I kinda Invariably I feel bad and districts a little strong there hasn't been many There's been a few but there's definitely been times where I go. Wow this guy is professionally. Famous. They're not actually professionally. Good at their job. You're not actually professional educator professionally popular in. It's hard to differentiate that sometimes so that's the hard part right but I mean there are people who.

Spiel you explain to people. This is what Dr Stevens does usually cy. I entirely can aside my hands over my eyes. Look Tired House long answer. But for the most part I usually just answer sports heartbreaker in a lot of time. That's kind of a cop out answer but Sometimes I'll say I ideally concussions. Sometimes I'll stay I'm a professional educator. I actually I make more of my living in spend more time educating than than anything else right now And sometimes I say I run a couple of businesses so kind of depends the company that But most time Most of the time I decide because I'm literally always I'm always doing about five different things all very much related but I'm always doing different things So it's as you've probably figured out not a lot of time and I know that's something the five different things we're going to get into a little later. I'm always interested when I interview people for moving to live if you're in a movement profession and I would put sport Chiropractic in a movement profession. Were you an active kid and if you were an active kid was because mom and Dad said get the heck out of the house and don't come back. Were you a kid who is an athlete all along at some point? You realize you know. I might not be able to make my living as an athlete. But I'd really like to do something that allows me to be around people that move. Yeah I think I'm I'm of that era where it's you you. You don't bother your parents by hanging around the house in hoping for something to do because they'll get annoyed with you kick you out tell you to essentially come back whenever it gets dark right or comeback. When it suffered time right so I I did. What a lot of kids. I grew up playing with a lot of the neighborhood kids I played pretty well every single sport. that I could get my hands on on the entirely honest I always I tended to not stay with many sports for very long in a lot of that was For me I really enjoyed movements But I was very self paced person and was very noncompetitive. And so you know at this age I can realize a lot of it was kind of a big artistic streak in me on and I really appreciate it. A lot of movement disciplines that allowed for rather than having highly stringent rules in highly competitive Matter of Italian board I really appreciate it. Things Ettelaat more expression to them and so even even the sports that I did plan. I always found myself wanting to play the position. That was either extremely important or you have freedom of decision-making so the goalie in hockey or soccer in some way shape or form you know. I try to try and play point guard in basketball all these different things where I kinda got to not run the show but in some way making decisions on the fly because I didn't really enjoy running back and forth on a field for the running back and forth out of fuel but chase a ball so I ended up playing pretty every single sport of Ice Hockey Goalie for twenty years started. Snowboarding got into different kinds of dance and Essentially tried everything else in the meantime Olympic lifting. Powerlifting competed in bodybuilding kettlebells WanNa do for a long time And I'm a I'm a chronic dabbler in every movement discipline and usually I'll just look at something that looks like a lot of fun and figure out a way to try it and sometimes it's six sometimes it stays for years sometimes for days. Yeah creative lifestyle. It's not really something. I have a specific discipline that I that I view as the better discipline. I just I kinda WanNa try them all wanted experience them all and I'll put one that you can add on your bucket list for my local. Fit pittsburgh-based podcast. I interviewed a place that does High Level Pugo sticking and I actually now have an air airfield pogo stick which is absolutely if you ever had a pogo stick as a kid. It is the most fun thing the world record for the high jump in the Pugo stick is ten feet where you have to. You can step off something but when you go over the bar you have to bounce three times. I have no desire to do that. Bouncing around is just that novel or new moving activity so check out X. Pogo chancer or check out. Some of their videos. Because you look at it and go well that might be in business for me or wow. That looks like a lot of fun and I can see how I might want to add that into my life. Yep there's there's a unique aspects of bouncing that's really might have a four year old daughter and she goes the gymnastics and unfortunately they recently changed the rules around this six months ago. Took her to gymnastics at a drop in all the other parents sitting in the corner on the phone and then roaming around like jumping from trampoline the trampoline fifty feet in the air and a lot of. That's just because I did a lot of stuff as a kid you know. I used to being in the air and it was just so funny. I completely forgot all the kids were there and bouncing around for five minutes like heart rates through the roof the love bouncing just flopping on my back in front slips and backflips all these different things on. I'm at an age probably shouldn't be doing that but I get done like a sit down. I look up and like all. The kids have stopped doing gymnastics. And they're just like what's old guy but there's something unique about dancing up and down that Michigan Giddy like a little kid exactly and I'm always curious when I interview people. I've got the advantage of being able to read the form. You filled out prior and check out your webpage. You go to college. I believe majored in biology. How did you decide to major in biology? So the funny thing is I started in biology and I really didn't like it So I worked. I'd been working various jobs in some nine. I started with a paper route and so ended up saving enough money to go to pay for at least my first year university on my own and so kind of like I have the money. I don't really know what exactly what I WANNA do. So I went and started kind of a just general bachelors of science in Biology. Not Knowing where it was going to go and I absolutely hated it mostly because it was. I like the freedom of university compared to high school beard kind of having a job but I mean I was studying flat worms in Geology. And you know social history and just this kind of broad scatter plot of staff which I understand is important for certain things Did that for twelve years. Studied a little bit of everything for twelve years like this is just not fund is doing more of the same so I quit. After my first year I came out to British Columbia in western Canada's SNOWBOARD PUN for year. And then I went back and started a theology degree or something Human Kinetics degree and love every second of it and essentially it. Just kinda a lightbulb moment really hit this is what I. This is what I want to be studying. This is how i WanNa be thinking where I want my brain to spend all its time from now on when school was really easy after that into it's amazing. I had a similar path when I took general education classes my first year. My GPA wasn't very good at no. When I got into athletic training classes all of a sudden it's like Oh this is interesting. It really doesn't seem like work when you have something that you're interested. Yeah Yeah it's funny because I was so we ended up in the last semester of my wife was with me and ended up last semester in school with almost no courses because I literally had taken like seven or eight courses a semester during my entire Undergrad started switched to kings. Y'All AJI and most people are just like trying to figure out what they can get away with that I was literally trying to overload my schedule going like we haven't advanced exercise physiology court. How could I not take right light? It's like this is amazing inside. Take absolutely everything to the point. Where in my last mess courses soda almost essentially ended the whole thing really excited right whereas prior to that it was kind of just like you said it was like an ominous through is like study for this. I found myself. You know reading ahead chapters in anatomy classes geology classes in stopping. I think it's a good sign. You know when you get to that point and I think it's something there's some people who are just hardwired that way. They just have that innate curiosity whatever they learn there's like other there must be something more to learn. Yeah Yeah I think I think honestly a lot of people have built in And the people that don't think they have a built in. They probably just haven't found the same yet. That's all
