Accelerating Towards Your Goals at Year End – It Takes a Team!

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” – Michael Jordan

Q4 is always a frenzy, isn’t it? Between the seasonal pressures of our personal and practice lives, and juggling the schedules of our practice members, our team members and that of the wider community, there is just SO MUCH TO DO! The calendar seems to be flipping by faster and faster. And the year’s hopes and expectations start to weigh on us. We worry about our pace of growth, the year’s starts and stops, and so many other things as we begin to reflect upon the year.

Take a breath. You’re not alone. You have your team. Not just the team that your family, friends and staff represent, but also the AMPED team. We’re here for each other. Lean into us and we’ll get each other through. If you had some set backs this year, let us know how we can help.

But even if things seem to be going smoothly and, in fact, you’ve blasted through your goals already, Q4 is NOT the time to coast. As Dr. Jessica Harden explains in the video below, don’t stop pushing! Stay consistent, stay organized and stick with your plan. The moment you start coasting is when you start losing touch with your practice.

Watch as Dr. Jessica Harden and Dr. Sara Nelson discuss the role of the team in a practice’s success. This is a fascinating excerpt from their recent KickStart program Hangout.


So good luck in this last quarter of the year. Lean on your team and let them know how much you appreciate them. Commit to sowing more effort and attention to your team in the new year. And bring as many team members as you can to the January Team Conference in Atlanta!

AMPED Member Focus


Dr. Jamie Adams

We are proud to bring you the story of Dr. Jamie Adams, who is located in Covington, GA! All of us in the AMPED community wish her the best of luck.

Q. How long have you been open?

A: We opened October 15, 2013.

Q. How many patients do you see per week?

A: We’re at 457 per week (but we’ll hit 500 very soon).

Q. What is your focus or specialty?

A: Our focus is primarily pediatrics, pregnancy and overall family health and wellness; we use diversified and torque release technique (I use diversified and my associates use TRT).

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

A: I was working in a terrible associate position after graduating from Life in 2011. After working there for a little over a year, I left that position and had no plan for a new job and had no idea what I was going to do and I surely was not trained on how to open / run my own practice. Two weeks later I met a DC who was retiring and he asked me if I wanted to rent a small space in his practice and work on the days he wasn’t there. I had nothing else lined up so I agreed. When I started there a week later, I was broke and all I had was an old laptop and a refurbished adjusting table that my mom bought for me. The first day I was open, I saw two people. I continued to grind and work on the days the other DC was not there, very slowly building my practice. A year after opening, I joined the AMPED JumpStart Program knowing I needed to make a drastic change if I was ever going to have CFC grow. The next year, we did grow A LOT but I was still very limited with space and resources since I was still sharing a space. We had no working xray equipment and the space was very old and was in desperate need of a face lift.

In 2015 the other doctor finally retired and I got to completely take over his space. I immediately started a massive renovation and thanks to AMPED, I was able to pay cash for the all the office renovations and equipment to make CFC what it is today. We are currently seeing almost 500 / week and are looking to expand our space even more to accommodate our future goals. Our goal is to reach 1000 / week by the summer time.

Q. How has AMPED helped you?

A: AMPED has helped me get to where I am today. The systems and procedures provided by AMPED provide the structure necessary to have a successful and rewarding practice. AMPED also provides us with a community to help keep each other accountable, affords growth for our profession, and grows and empowers impactful leaders.

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

A: This is a community! Be part of it! Never be afraid to ask for help or provide help!

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

A: DO IT TODAY!!! You won’t regret it!

Q. Where can people find you?
