Have You Worked Towards Your Perfect Life Today?

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”
Attributed to Abraham Lincoln, Peter Drucker, and others

Each new day is another chance to shape our future to match our most intense and meaningful desires and goals. The actions we take today and tomorrow either further our progress towards the life we want, or set us back and make us wait. The choice is up to you. What’s it going to be?

An Invitation for Students

Docs in practice know how the future of their offices depends on the little things that happen in each moment. But, it’s easy for students to lose sight of the big picture when they have to deal with all the distractions that make up student life.

The AMPED Conference helps students keep their eyes on the prize. The Family Conference is especially valuable. Where else can a student see so many leading chiropractors reveal the tips and tricks they use to balance practice and family life?

Students – don’t miss the opportunity that the October 6th-8th AMPED Family Conference represents. Take a look at this amazing itinerary we’ve put together and make the decision to come!


Tickets are 100% free so bring your fellow students with you! Info and registration at

AMPED Member Focus


Drs. Logan and Laura Swaim

We are proud to bring you the story of Dr. Logan Swaim and Dr. Laura Swaim, who are located in Lakewood Ranch, FL! All of us in the AMPED community wish them the best of luck.

Q. What is your role at the practice?

A: Dr. Logan – Chiropractor, Networker (all things social ;))

Dr. Laura – Chiropractor, Office Manager (all things numbers ;))

Q. How long have you been open?

A: One year and 10 months.

Q. How many patients do you see per week?

A: 400

Q. What is your focus or specialty?

A: Torque Release Technique – Families, pediatrics and pregnancy.

Q. What would you like to tell us about your practice adventure?

A: Our practice adventure started while in school. We traveled through many states searching for the perfect spot for us to practice and raise a family. Once we moved to our town, we hit the ground running attending every networking event and knocking on doors while training a team at a local school during the day and preparing paperwork, office material and scheduling events at night. We passed all our office inspections the day before our ribbon cutting and our front desk construction was not even complete. We are forever thankful to AMPED students who helped us prep our office, gather material and serve the day of our ribbon cutting and first few weeks into practice. We opened with 150 new practice members and grew to 300 the end of the first year. There were a lot of unknowns but the best memories were those busy days serving together as husband and wife and not having to think what was happening next; the systems were in place – we just needed to serve. We have enjoyed the whole process – the ups, downs and the different seasons that brought different joys and challenges knowing we are providing a better quality of life by allowing innate to have full expression in our community.

Q. How has AMPED helped you?

A: AMPED has given us all the tools necessary to serve our community with excellence. There were a lot of unknowns, especially with opening, and AMPEDhelped us see what is possible for our business and personal lives.

Q. Do you have any advice for fellow AMPED members?

A: Plug into everything that AMPED has to offer. If you are 100% committed, you can get 100% results. Follow what works – do not try to re-invent the wheel. Ask questions – no matter how small the question may seem; others will benefit from it later on during that season in their life.

Q. What would you say to anyone considering joining AMPED?

A: Visit offices that are part of AMPED and ask questions. If nothing else, you WILL getthe principle of chiropractic. Do not be a skeptic – dive in. You will not regret it. AMPEDis a family and everyone helps everyone. Enjoy practicing knowing you have fellow AMPED members that are there to support your journey to uplift and encourage you and even help push you to limits you never knew possible.

Q. Where can people find you?
