As a highly competitive collegiate athlete, Vince Taylor, DC at Tennessee Center of Integrated Medicine had a natural interest in the human body and its development into optimal performance. During college he explored various realms in health and medicine before ultimately pursuing a career in chiropractic where he was able to nurture his passion of helping people reach their full potential in health.
After finishing school in 2013, Vince and his wife Erin opened their own practice and saw significant growth early on. They had a large insurance base in chiropractic and acupuncture with a steady flow of clients but began feeling overworked and overwhelmed.
“We were very successful getting started but there was that level of burnout in dealing with insurance companies. It’s just never ending how to deal with that, and the staffing required to run a clinic of that nature was really taking its toll on us.”
Knowing it was time for a change, Vince recalled a previous conversation he had with Dr. Gregory Fryer about FPC and decided it was time to learn more. He attended one of Dr. Webb’s webinars, made the investment, and proceeded to revamp his business in three months.
“The insurance base fell out through regulatory changes, and we had a huge drop in revenue. I knew we had to switch gears fast. That’s when I hopped on a webinar with Dr. Webb. We signed up and turned our practice around in three months.”
With FPC’s help, Vince went from constantly worrying about his business to having a clear grasp on where he was going and how he was going to get there. Though he admits that he is not completely worry free, he has found comfort in having a process mapped out and knows that if he sticks to it, his business will continue to grow.
“Before, it was just a lot of worrying. We were totally dependent on insurance, and we didn’t really have control over the business. Now there’s a lot more comfort in knowing the process and being able to pinpoint any issues. There are times when I still worry but I know if I do the talks and stick to the process things are going to be fine.”
Although Vince had some mindset challenges from the start when it came to the PME and the program investment, he adapted rather quickly and broke the 100K mark in programs sold in his first nine weeks with FPC. He explained that when broken down, the packaging of the programs is invaluable.
“Presenting the plans to people in the PME was pretty nerve-racking for me in the beginning, but the more I do it, the more comfortable I am. And we’ve had multiple people say, oh my gosh, thank you so much, because they’ve worked with other functional medicine practitioners and there is an up and down cost of testing and supplements that it makes it hard for them. So, they appreciated the fact that we can plan, budget, and break it down easily.”
“Everyone loves it,” Vince said when I asked if the team was enjoying being a part of FPC. “Helping people walk through the process and use a structured educational curriculum has been a big game changer for us; and having the systems in place has really helped. Professionally, it’s boosted my confidence in helping people with chronic health conditions.”
As someone who ran a seven-figure earning business for several years, Vince has had the opportunity to analyze and truly reflect on the meaning of success. He learned that there is much more to it than income and net worth and believes that being successful is more about a sense of fulfillment and purpose.
“Early on, I thought success was hitting a financial benchmark within a business but now I don’t think that’s really it. It’s more the professional fulfillment that you’re making a difference within your community and actually changing the course of health within America. The financial side will just be the side effect of accomplishing that. There are days when people tell me how much better they feel and, in those moments, I feel like this is my purpose, this is success.”
In joining the FPC community, Vince understands the integral role he plays in changing lives and is honored to be a prat of our mission.
“There is power in unity. Having a united group of elite practitioners focused on reversing chronic health conditions is awesome. I feel humbled to be a part of that overall mission.”
