Marcy Predmore 0:59
Well, good morning, I just want to say Happy New Year to everyone out there in the audience.
Marcy Predmore 1:07
ordinary women extraordinary wealth is so excited to bring an interviewee that's a dear friend of mine today. And in just a minute, I'm going to share who that is, and just a little bit of background, and then we're going to hear her story. But I just want to start the podcast by sharing.
Marcy Predmore 1:26
The reason that I created ordinary women extraordinary wealth was really to, again share messages of we ordinary people, creating an extraordinary journey. In our extraordinary journeys, we all have one. It's not that I have something that you don't, we all have one. And it's just such a joy to bring the spotlight on to that extraordinary. And today we're going to talk a little bit about traditions, we're going to talk a little bit about growth. We're going to talk a little bit about money. And I'm just super excited to have each one of you here today. And without further ado, I am going to introduce introduce you to doc Dr. Jessica, and she is the most amazing chiropractor. She and her husband, Brandon have a chiropractic clinic, One Health chiropractic in northern Colorado in Fort Collins. I'm gonna let her share just a little bit in a minute. She also has the most beautiful little girl named Chloe. And she's already the most intelligent little girl I think I've ever met in my life and just as beautiful. But Dr. Jessica is going to share just a little bit about her practice of being an entrepreneurial woman. And without again, further ado, Dr. Jessica, if you would just share a little bit about your practice your family, just share who you are.
Jessica Buttry 2:57
Yeah, well, first of all, thank you so much for having me on today. Marcy. I'm so excited to be here. And yes, Happy New Year, everybody. We all survived 2020 and 2021 is going to be great. I cannot wait. I'm so excited. But yes, as Marcy said, My husband and I are both chiropractors, our office is one health chiropractic. We are located in Fort Collins, Colorado, so Northern Colorado. And we we opened one healthcare practice in April of 2015. So we will actually be celebrating six years this year. So exciting. Our office just continues to grow and continues to amaze us. Each and every year we continue to serve 1000s of families across northern Colorado, helping them achieve higher levels of health and well being and it's just so rewarding. I couldn't ask for a better profession. And then as Marcy said, Yes, we do have a daughter Chloe. She is nine years old. So she's in the third grade. And we're doing the online schooling and I've been navigating through that. And so I'm kind of relearning third grade again, which is pretty cool because but it's a fun journey. And she's she's just a beautiful, intelligent, talented little girl. And it's so fun to watch her grow. And then we have a dog diesel Of course can't forget the dog. That's right. Gotta love got to give some love to the dog. But yeah, whenever we first opened our office, we moved to Colorado and we didn't know a single person. So I'm from Oklahoma originally. And my husband Brandon is from Iowa. And we went to chiropractic school in Texas. That's where we met fell in love, got married during school, and then graduated, ready to serve. And we just fell in love with Colorado. We took a couple of trips out to visit fell in love with the Fort Collins area. And then a few weeks after we graduated, we packed up everything and moved to Colorado and began our journey. So it was a little scary, not knowing anybody. But we were just so excited and our hearts were full of service and love Ready to give to people? And I wouldn't change anything that we've done so far. So
Marcy Predmore 5:05
oh my gosh, what? What a story. I mean, that could be a book in itself. Yeah.
Marcy Predmore 5:15
I absolutely love it. And, and really, I hope you audience are excited to hear this story because Jessica has, again, from her ordinary life become so extraordinary. So we're going to start with a few questions. And as we move through the questions, Jessica and I are really just going to share some of our own perspective. And it might even just bring up a few perspectives for you. And I would love to hear those perspectives. So anytime, we'd love to have you reach out to us on ordinary women extraordinary wealth group on Facebook. So, Miss Jessica, we are going to start with the very first question. It might seem broad, but it's truly something that we all focus on.
Marcy Predmore 6:01
And what does success mean to you?
Jessica Buttry 6:06
I love this question, Marcy, thank you for asking it. So I always like to go back to too early Earl Nightingale, the Strangest Secret in the world, right? You need to find success as the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal. And then one of our other mentors. He's a dear friend, chiropractor, dr. john demartini. he defines success as balanced in all seven areas of life. So what are the seven areas right? Everybody needs to know what are the seven areas so we're talking spiritual, mental, physical, vocational, financial, familial, and social. So I truly believe that to be successful in today's world in it, it's different for everybody, it looks different for everybody. But it's having balance in all areas of life. Because if we look at some of the quote unquote, people who we would consider successful, maybe like Steve Jobs, I don't know if I would consider him a true success. Because yes, he had a lot of money. But as he said, You can't pay someone to take your place in the hospital bed. So he was lacking in that health, or that physical side of life. And so I truly believe that in order to be a success, that we need balance in all seven areas of life.
Marcy Predmore 7:21
Absolutely. And, you know, I really think that is something, okay, we are all starting a new year together. And Jessica and Brandon really are passionate about that balance. When it comes to health. They really, that's just something it's been a god given gift to both of them. And so I love the balance that they bring, I mean, we've gotten to know each other quite well, and, and they shine that message. So again, I just think that balance, Jessica is super way to bring and mold into the word success. Because if we don't have our health, Mm hmm. What do we have truly,
Jessica Buttry 8:04
and then if you don't have your finances in order, yes, a lot of stress that will then affect your health. And then if we don't have that familial aspect, I think a big part of, of being a success is you want to, you want to leave something to your family, or leave something that people can remember you by I think that's one of the biggest needs as a human is, is we want to be remembered whenever we gone. And so we want to be remembered whenever we're not here anymore. So what can we leave to the next generation or to the world that they'll remember us by. And it's not easy, everybody, when when I say balance in all areas, it is a constant, like I am working constantly to make sure that I am maintaining balance in all areas. And I can tell when I am focusing on some areas more than others, I'll get anxiety or, you know, things just don't seem like they're going the way that I want them to. And so then I have to kind of sit back and reflect and say, okay, yes, the business is going great. Our business is thriving, but because I've been so busy, I haven't made it to the gym. And so now my health like I'm bottling up that anxiety and not releasing it. And so then that's affecting me physically. And then if that's affecting me physically, how is that portraying over to my family? Am I able to be there for my family at 100%. So it's definitely not easy. And it's something that, you know, I don't feel like I'm ever going to arrive. It's something that I'm constantly learning and constantly growing each and every day.
Marcy Predmore 9:28
Oh my gosh, and and we're going to get into that topic too. And I want you all to be very attentive to that piece, because I think we all fall into that category of being too busy to take care of us. So I'm really looking forward to that part of the conversation today. So again, success is a big topic. And as we move through these these questions, some of them are going to seem broad, but we're going to kind of bring them in just a little bit as we discuss them. The next question.
Marcy Predmore 10:02
Wealth sometimes confuses people, because the very first thing that pops into your mind about wealth is money. Mm hmm. Yes, money is super important. We're going to talk about that there is going to be a tip of the week at the end, and Jessica brought it up earlier, it's going to be about legacy. Wealth is a foundation. But there's also more to wealth. And so Jessica, what does wealth mean to you?
Jessica Buttry 10:32
So I think,when I was in school, learning, and a young student didn't know, didn't know anything about the real world, right? So we're in chiropractic school, and we're all Yay, chiropractic and health and working out in fitness, then you're kind of like in a bubble with all the other chiropractors who think like you, and do the same things that you do eat healthy workout, and this and that. And then you get into the real world. And it's kind of like you're slapped in the face a little bit, because you're like, wow, everybody doesn't think like this. And not everybody wants to work out and not everybody wants to be healthy. And not everybody wants to go to the chiropractor, and that's okay. And I think, being in the real world now, like when I was in school, you think like, well, like, Oh, yeah, I'm a doctor, I'm gonna get out and make a lot of money and this and that. And I want the really big house and this and that, and you kind of focus on material things. And then as I'm out of school, and I'm in my business, and I'm working, and I'm listening to my mentors, and reading different books, and personal growth and development, I think the true wealth circles back to that balance, and every single area of life, I've heard tons of stories of you know, this person had all the money in the world, but then you look at their personal life and their relationships, and their relationships struggled, maybe they were abusive to their spouse, or maybe they weren't even married, or maybe they didn't even have any kids. And in my opinion, because I am a mom. And because I do have a family, I would look at that person and say, you know, maybe, maybe they weren't as as wealthy or successful as they thought they were. So I think it again goes back to that balance and every single area of life. And I think when most people hear the word wealth, they think of the Hollywood celebrities and all the money in this and that, and if if you if you follow some of them, you know, when they're retired, they lose all of their money, because nobody's taught them how to properly handle that money. Yes, no, I think the true wealth again, is, is that balance, and then working on yourself and, and growing and learning and then sharing those things with other people. And then living out your true life's purpose. I think if you're living your true life's purpose, I think that is true wealth. And that is true success.
Marcy Predmore 12:35
Yes, I absolutely love them on working on yourself and true purpose. And one of the things that you do have to be focused on so this year, just coincidentally, my word is going to be focused 2020 was the year of vision for all of us. It maybe didn't turn out the way you visualize it. But it was the year of vision and there was much opportunity, minus focus and purpose. So and just I really feel, I'm glad you brought that up. Because if you don't stay focused, right now, for 30 days, I'm reading you squared by price Pritchett. And the chapter that I'm reading is focused on ends rather than the means. So I'm focusing on more the how, but not the doing, right, and really, really trying to be purposeful about my goals. And of course, for me, wealth is part of that. And if we don't have wealth, in all the aspects, again, then we kind of miss a piece of the puzzle. So success and wealth are to me to have some of the most important things to talk about. Those are that's why they're my two favorite questions to ask. Right off the bat. So the next thing that I really want to share is because we are entrepreneurial, entrepreneurial women here at extraordinary women, we're going to talk a little bit about business, women in business, and a little bit about inspiration.
Marcy Predmore 14:11
So Dr. Jessica, I would like for you to tell us what is a day in your life look like?
Jessica Buttry 14:20
Oh my goodness, crazy. espresso machine so I can have enough energy. Okay, so let's just start out with like Monday. Okay, so Monday is one of our busiest days at the office. That's our longest day at the office. We just have like a quick two hour lunch break and then we work all day. So I'm up first thing in the morning around 445 5am. start my day. Get ready. Try to get my mind ready for the patients that we're going to be seeing. Usually I like to start my day right off with some affirmation. So I'll grab my list of affirmations and start reading them because I want to get my mind ready for the day in my mind ready for the people that I'm going to be serving And then it's after that it's okay, I'm gonna get ready, of course, I get my coffee. And then we head to the office. And then one of the things that we'll do at the office is we have our little gold cards and affirmation cards, and we read them out loud as a team. So we'll go through that way, everybody knows what the goals are for the year. And then we'll read affirmation, so we can all get our minds ready and be on the same page to serve the ever greater number of patients that are coming in to see us. And then we start our days, usually around 830 in the office, and we're serving patients until about noon, or 1215. And then I'm running around doing errands grabbing lunch, I'm trying to get some last minute things done before I have to get back to the office. And then at 230. Again, we go over the schedule, we visualize the people coming through the door, we talk about every patient that's going to be coming in and what they need. So we're all on the same page. And then we're serving patients until 636 45 at night, and then we close up the office, and then I come home and have to make dinner. And then usually by like 930, I'm so exhausted, yes, let me try to kind of focus on the day and focus on you know, I try to find balance one of our mentors, he's, he's really big on you know, if you don't, if you don't Humble yourself, the universe will. So if everything went perfect in the day, and you're writing this high, and oh, we had a great day of collections and this and that, and you're only focused on the positive, the universe is going to bring you some negative to kind of bring you back down to like, you know, reality. I try to go through and think about, okay, you know, what could we have done better today, like, who maybe waited too long,maybe we weren't able to get a new patient. And because our schedule was swollen, we had to push them up, but they really needed to get in. Or maybe, you know, the staff had a hiccup that we could have fixed or just different things like that to kind of bring myself out down to balance. And then I turned on the TV, which is rare. We'll watch like a little funny show to end the night. And then I'm out like a lamb because I'm exhausted, you know, 545 or 445 and fives coming up quick. And then this whole, like winter shift, it's like, three in the morning. So I'm like, Am I supposed to be up right now?
Marcy Predmore 17:14
No, I it's not bothered me really ever before this year has been a tough time for me with the time change?
Jessica Buttry 17:21
I would agree.
Marcy Predmore 17:22
Yeah. Because I think my body just likes to come on naturally and go out naturally. And it's really hard when it's still dark at 7am.
Jessica Buttry 17:31
Because your body's going Wait a second and still dark outside.
Marcy Predmore 17:35
Well, I just love hearing that. And I and the reason I asked that question is because we all have a day in the life of us. And sometimes we look at our own lives. And we think we're the only one on this island that that that our daily journey is more than someone else or less than someone else or not adequate enough. So I just really want to encourage each one of you listening, that your daily journey is such an important example, not only to yourself, but to your family, to the people around you. And Jessica, you said something at the beginning of our time today. And you mentioned like minds, you are in chiropractic school, you are with like minded people that had the same vision as you kind of the same routine, the same philosophy. And you know, when we get out into this big world, there's a lot of minds out there. And not all are like minded or like your mind. So that's why we always need to really be growing, and gird ourselves, for the minds that are going to penetrate with negativity. We have skepticism with control, things that we are not in control of, which is what we're all living through today. So I just really wanted to just touch on that for a minute. Because I really feel like like minds are so important. So you have a group, a tribe, a village, a congregation, if you have a group of people that are like minded, really get your fulfillment from that too, because it's not all from five o'clock in the morning until nine o'clock at night just you against the world.
Jessica Buttry 19:27
And I think that's one of the things like as human beings I know being a chiropractor, I feel like we're a little bit more open to different opinions or, or different things. And I feel like that's where some people their frustration or their anger stems from is somebody doesn't think exactly like them. Or they're judging themselves based on somebody else's story or based on somebody else's purpose. Though maybe they're looking at somebody, you know, like a house mom, for instance, like she might look at a woman like me and think that she's a failure because you She chose to stay at home and take care of the family were as I look at her, and I'm like, you know what you're a success in what you were doing, because that's how you're truly fulfilled. And you can tell that they're fulfilled by the way that they interact with their kids, and the way that they interact with their family and the way that they go out of their way to provide for their family. And I would look at them and say, No, you are a success, because you are doing what you want to do what you feel called to do. And so I think the main thing is just stop comparing your story to somebody else's,
Marcy Predmore 20:29
oh, gosh, I just love that too. Don't yardstick yourself to that, that is just so important. Well, and as we went into the, the, the life of the day, but let's talk just a little bit about how did you feel, Jessica, when you began your entrepreneurial, entrepreneurial, I'm gonna throw that word today. real journey? Did you have a dream as a as a young woman? Did you have a goal? Or tell us a little bit about your journey?
Jessica Buttry 21:01
Yeah, absolutely. So I know, you know, when you're in chiropractic school, not really sure about the real world yet, you know, we all had those dreams, and oh, we're all gonna see 1000 patients every single week, and you know, we're gonna have 100 new patients in a month, and this and that, and you kind of eat you, you really reach for, you know, anything, because you're not really quite sure what it all entails, or maybe how much work it all entails. And so whenever you get out into the real world, and you start working, you're like, Okay, maybe the 1000 patient visits per week, maybe that was a little too, but you know, I think I'd be good enough. And so kind of, you know, learning and then molding your goals and kind of shaping your goals on on the information that you've, you've gotten as feedback. And so I know, I tried to position myself with with some of the chiropractic women in our profession who are doing extremely well, because I want them to pull me to their level. And so I, I've made it a thing to really listen to and interact with other successful chiropractic women, because let's just face it, you know, being a chiropractor, in general, you know, there's some skepticism, but then you add being a woman to the mix, and people go, you can't adjust people, you're too small. It's true. There's different things where, you know, I kind of have to accept that, you know, maybe that's their opinion, and I'm not going to change their mind. But I know what my body is capable of. And I know that maybe, if I am lacking in the physical, then that's where I need to, you know, improve and get into the gym more. That's why I lift weights, to make sure that my body can support the Adjust or the patients that I'm working on. But then I've tailored it to my own specific niche. So my niche is pregnant women and small children. And I feel so fulfilled doing that, because, you know, adults, it's fun to adjust adults. Let's face it, we beat ourselves up pretty bad. And we wait until it gets really bad before we seek help. Kids, it's more about helping them express their fullest life potential, or working with the nervous system. So every time make an adjustment, especially on a child, I'm opening up that nervous system, or that flow of the brain to the body and the body to the brain. And I'm helping them grow at the most optimal level, I'm helping them live at the most optimal level, so that they can do the things that are enjoyable to them. And that in and of itself just makes me feel so fulfilled. And then pregnant women, oh my gosh, I've got great stories of pregnant women who the baby was breached, and we got the baby to go head down and perfect labor and delivery with no c section needed. Or, you know, there's those stories of hours and hours and hours and hours of pushing. And they come and see me for their second child and they push three times and the baby comes out. And so I've kind of I still struggle with it a little bit. I'm not gonna say that I'm perfect, but I'm working every single day to work on myself. So that other people's opinion of me doesn't affect me. And I think that's hard for a lot of people. We, we want to be liked. We want to be loved. We want everything to be perfect. And sometimes we just have to let the naysayers go because they're always going to be there. There's always going to be people that are trying to bring you down to their lower level because they don't like your success. And so I try to maybe pull people up to my level a little bit instead of being drugged down to theirs.
Marcy Predmore 24:26
Oh gosh. And and to me that is again, some some amazing nuggets today is we can't let the outside pressures again the negativities because we are not going to please 100% of the people 100% of the time. Yeah, in our industry here at private banking concepts, and yours at one health. We know that we started our day, saying God just prepare us for who you're going to bring to us. And we you know, it might not be look perfect to them, we did our very best. And we really had the great intention, it might not have always worked. But that doesn't mean you failed. That doesn't mean that again, if you're too small that you can't create velocity with your stature. I mean, really? Yeah. I mean, really? Go ahead, go ahead.
Jessica Buttry 25:23
I know in the beginning, you know, being a business owner, it really it really weighed on us. I mean, me and Brandon, we'd sit at home some nights, you know, if, if maybe a patient was upset because they didn't get the results, they thought they were gonna get right away, because the body and healing takes time. And it's, we live in that instant gratification world where, oh, I have a symptom. So I'm going to take the pill and my symptom goes away, but the problem is still there. But people equate symptoms with being healthy. So if my symptom went away, then I must be healthy. But that's not the case. We always tell patients, you can't base your health on how you look and how you feel because there's quote unquote, healthy people dropping out have heart attacks, or going in for their yearly physical, and they're diagnosed with stage four cancer. But they didn't have any symptoms, or maybe their only symptom was they were tired. Yeah. And so early on, we would let other people's opinion affect us and it kind of weighed on you and kind of brought you down a little bit and made you feel like maybe you weren't worthy enough or weren't doing enough. And I think as we've worked on ourselves, and personal growth and development, and been around mentors, and been around other successful people, and realize you're not going to make everybody happy. And I think too many people are trying to please everybody else, when they should just be focused on doing what makes them happy. And then the reflection of that maybe it will change other people's hearts are changing other people's minds, and pull them to your level.
Marcy Predmore 26:52
And that's really true. Be confident in who you are today. Be confident in what you have to offer today. No. And I just I mean, so many, you're just giving me tons of nuggets right now. And so I just really appreciate your insight. And so that those are going to be some of our next questions. And it's all going to be around inspiration. Now, Dr. Jessica, Dr. Brandon, as I said, are very dear friends of Tim and eyes. And we all are like minded some of the biggest things that we like to do. We like to go to events, we like to read books, we like to grow us and and again, the word affirmation is going to get thrown out. We're going to talk a little bit about that. We're going to talk about what are those tools? So Jess, I know you have just an amazing routine, in growing who you are and sharpening your own sword. So can you tell everybody, again? how you create your goals? Again, possibly a daily ritual, and then throw out some some books, some podcasts, some, some things that really push you or grow you?
Jessica Buttry 28:09
Yes, absolutely. So every single year, it's usually around like the Thanksgiving time we kind of my husband and I will sit down and we will kind of reflect on the year that we've had and the goals that we had set. And, you know, I'm not gonna lie there, there hasn't been a time where we 100% hit every single goal in the year. But we were very, very close and stressful. And so we take that and we go into the next year saying, Okay, this is where we were in this year. How much further do you think we can push ourselves next year? What can we achieve? And so we kind of sit down and we set like our practice goals for the year, we'll typically set some personal development growth or personal development goals of you know, how many books do I want to try to read this year? How many seminars would we like to attend? How many, you know, online trainings do we want to do? And so I think a lot of it is just taking the time to sit down and figure out what it is you want. I think that's one of the hardest things for people today is we can't just sit down with ourselves because we go crazy, because our mind is constantly worried about oh, well, you know, if I'm down here, what are the kids doing, or if I'm down here, the laundry is not getting done, or the house isn't getting cleaned, or dinner needs to be made or whatever it is, and I struggle with it too. But it's just taking that time with yourself, maybe closing yourself off in a bedroom or maybe even leaving your home and going to a coffee shop or somewhere where you find peace and quiet, to just really focus on what it is that you want. And I think when you're setting a goal, the intention needs to be clear of what it is you actually want. You know, I could say, Oh, I want to be wealthy. Okay, but what does that look like for me? Yeah, that mean, you know, paying off student loans, does that mean? You know, some other investments and different things? Does that mean acquiring more passive income? Are you what specifically does that look like? I think you need to be clear with your goals. So that's one of the main things and we'll sit down And do that every Thanksgiving. So our goals are already set before we get into the new year, I think one of the things is people wait too long, and they get into the new year. And they're like, Oh, I don't have any goals set. And so then they, yeah, like, oh, the year already started. And so then they're rushing. And so maybe they're not taking the time to really think through what it is they actually want. And they're just throwing things out there and then hoping that they can achieve it. I know, one of the other big things around goals is, is not worrying about how it's going to happen. But just setting that intention with the universe. And then knowing that as you're working toward it, the universe is going to provide for you to help get you to that goal. I think a lot of people focus on I know, in the secret they talked about like the how like, well, I want a million dollars and then Okay, well how is that going to happen? It's like don't worry about the how if you're working and you're serving and you're congruent with what you're studying, then the universe is going to provide you the how and so don't focus on the house so much just put out there what it is you actually want. But make sure it is congruent, you know, make sure you're not just saying, Oh, I want a million dollars, so I can sit on a beach and do nothing for the rest of my life. Because I think a big part of, of being human and, and and feeling like a success is is being in service to humanity. So making sure that you know, with what you're asking, you're being congruent in that aspect. And so yes, personal growth development books. I mean, I'm always got books around me. One of my favorites that I go to is the science of getting rich.
Marcy Predmore 31:35
I love that book,

constantly reading it over and over and over again. Wallace D wattles. I mean, it's just, it's phenomenal. Yeah, and every time I read it, I pull something, I pull another new nugget out of there that I didn't see the first time and then Think and Grow Rich. That's one of my other personal favorites. I tried to read from those two books on a weekly basis. And then different podcasts and things that we listened to were a big fan of Tony Robbins obviously I love Tony Robbins, Bob Proctor oh my gosh, Bob Proctor, we actually did one of his trainings while we were all like in lockdown. Because his stuff is phenomenal him and Sandy Gallagher, great influencers, great leaders in the personal growth session. And then I have my chiropractic tribe that I follow. There's some Dr. Wilson, she's a phenomenal female chiropractor. I love her stuff. And then her husband's actually a holistic cardiologist. So we love listening and learning from them. Dr. Bruce Lipton PhD, he is phenomenal around epigenetics and health isn't really that, like the mental aspect because our minds are controlling so much. And I think once you understand that, a lot of the symptoms or things that we're manifesting are things because we're not living our life. congruently like maybe we say we want one thing, but we're doing something else. And so then your body will provide you with feedback, to say, hey, you're actually not doing what you say you want to do, or you're not living your life. congruently so the mental aspect, understanding that, especially as a chiropractor, is a big part. dr. john demartini chiropractor. He's the human behavioral specialist. Now he travels all over the world. We love dr. john demartini, his books, his podcast, his interviews. And then Tim and Marcy, you guys mean, my goodness, Marcy, one of the biggest influencers? in our lives, especially since we met you guys. I think it was four, four years ago at chick fil a.
Marcy Predmore 33:38
Jessica Buttry 33:40
So love you guys love the information and the doors and just what you've opened our eyes to. Yeah, absolutely.
Marcy Predmore 33:49
Yeah. It's been a joy for us. I mean, and again, we're all learning from each other who's been a true joy and you were brought into our lives for a reason. And I know the journey was meant to grow together. So that's been it. I love that grow together. Yeah, yeah. Yeah.
Marcy Predmore 34:06
And, you know, as you were talking a little bit about that, about mentors. Yes, Bob Proctor right now. I mentioned him often, because that's who I listen to every day and who do you listen to every day? That's a question that I want you all out there to think about is Who do you listen to? Every day? Do you listen to somebody who has been where you've been? But is it attained something that you really want to attain? Or what what message What news? What, what are you listening to? That's penetrating your thought process. So Jessica, I just really I can't stress enough repetition also and you also brought it up. One of the things that demartini Bob Proctor Kevin Trudeau many Talk about his repetition. And if you all remember Jessica just said, Yes, she said it many times, she reads, thinking Grow Rich, and the science of getting rich every day. And it's not that we pick up a book, and we read it cover to cover, that's really not the point of what she's sharing, or at least how we've understood it, is you're going to pick up the book, and you're going to make it a concerted effort. I use 30 day windows, you can do whatever you want. But I do 30 day windows, I pick a chapter. And I read it for 30 days. And Jessica was even saying, I mean, just what would you say? The science of getting rich? When have you known that book? For what, five years? Well, gosh,
Jessica Buttry 35:52
yes, I believe it was our chiropractic business coach who actually introduced us to that book, it was on his list of readings. So yeah, it was like a list of 60 books or something like that for personal growth and development. And as soon as we got that list, Brandon and I, and we got on Amazon, we were ordering books like crazy. I think we were getting deliveries every single day, which was fun. Really, but yeah, for the past five years, and I still read it and go Holy cow. I didn't understand it that way two years ago, when I was reading that same section, because I'm a different person now. And I love the thing from Kevin Trudeau when he's talking about the guy, and he's like, Oh, yeah, there was a new edition of the book. And the guy was like, Okay, I'm going to go and read that. And it was the same edition. But the guy still got so much more out of it, because he was a different person when he read it versus when he read it the first time two or three years ago. Yeah. So it's, it's not about like what you said, just reading it cover to cover and then going, Oh, I read the book, Okay, I'm done with it. When I'm reading this thing I am highlighting I am writing in the margins, I, I have one note on my computer, Brandon has a one note on his computer where we're going back and logging different things from the book that really stood out to us. And that we want to go back to at different points. So yeah, and I will admit, I haven't got to read as much as I would like to. So that's one of my new things going into 2021 is I want to make sure that I'm setting aside that time because it's just so important. But don't get yourself either. So you know, you don't have to sit down and read the whole book in one day, you know, just take those little bits and pieces of you know, I read a paragraph this morning, and then I'm gonna read another paragraph before I go to bed. And don't punish yourself, you know, if you think oh, I should have read more, know what you did is fine. And then you can read more tomorrow.
Marcy Predmore 37:39
And again, all successes, I feel like we focus too much on my failures. And we don't celebrate the small successes. And that's
Marcy Predmore 37:47
why we're here. That's why we're here to celebrate the extraordinary. And you know, you said one last thing on this topic is it's the moment in time. So when Jessica started reading this 567 years ago, that was a moment in time, but she's grown from there. So when she reads the same chapter that she highlighted January 1 of 2015, she might get something completely different out of it, I out of it, I know I do. And so it's the moment in time for the growth that you're feeling and that you're ingesting. So I just want to encourage you pick a book. And we're going to have some of Dr. Jessica's books in the shownotes. So if you would like to hear how she reads are what she reads, who she listens to use that as a resource, and then make an effort to call it 30 days, whatever it may be, but get focused on really ingesting that information and making a change in your life today.
Jessica Buttry 38:53
Yes, you can't, you can't read while the TV's on and the kids are running around crazy. Like you want to be in a quiet place where you can really meditate on that information that you're taking in. That's absolutely right. And getting up a little bit earlier. So I've had to do that sometimes being a mom, you know, when the kids wake up, it's crazy. And it's got to get breakfast and gotta do this and that and on to the next thing. So sometimes I have to wake up just a little bit earlier. So I make sure that I get that alone time with myself so I can really focus and really take in the information that I'm reading.
Marcy Predmore 39:23
And you know, as a woman entrepreneur, that is really that that probably resonated with every single woman on this podcast, because we have children, we have spouses, we have family. We do everything out here, but we also have to do the everydays. Absolutely. And you know, what if Chloe wakes up with a tummy ache you already had your day planned? Yeah, but guess what? You had to pivot or you had to make a quick left turn when you meant to go right? Yes, and go forward. But we've all been there. We've all been there. where things have come up? So really like Jessica says, You are not a failure. Just pivot to whatever that day is, and be kind to yourself. Absolutely, yeah. So now we get to do we get to hop into a topic that's uncomfortable for many. And again, we talked about the meaning of wealth to you.
Marcy Predmore 40:22
But we're going to talk about true money. So ordinary women, extraordinary wealth, truly has a foundation around money. And it's a fearful topic. Sometimes it's a humiliating topic. Sometimes it's an embarrassing topic, it could even be a prideful topic. But we all grew up with a tradition around money. And my tradition was, I would say, I thought I was again, just that word, Mary. But Jessica, I would like to hear growing up. Now I want to talk about growing up yours first, the tradition that was passed down from your family, your parents, your grandparents around money, how is it, how to save it, how to how to have it, go ahead.
Jessica Buttry 41:12
So I don't think there was anything about saving money I was growing up throughout the years. And, and honestly, like, when I think back on my childhood, I know a lot of the fights that my parents had were around money, I think that's a lot of Americans today is the fighting and stuff is around the money or the lack thereof. Or that fear of running out of money or losing money, or not maybe doing the smartest things with money. I know, in my family in particular, my dad loved the casinos and love to bet on football games and, and this and that. And so I kind of have like a scar around casinos and different things like that I refuse to business visit those establishments. Now as an adult. Because of the things that I saw as a child, you know, my dad going to the casino, and my mom's sitting right there by him making sure he didn't lose all the money, or maybe he lost more money than he should have. And then there was an argument and screaming and different things like that, that me and my older sister would have to kind of, you know, plug our ears and act like okay, we can't hear what you're saying. And so there really wasn't a lot of, of teaching about, you know how to serve people and make money. I my family has always my dad has always been like a kind of self employed. He's been a cattle Farmer and Rancher. And then my grandparents had a bowling alley and restaurant that my parents ended up taking over when my grandpa got sick. So I was able to work as a young child in the restaurants and make money to buy some of the things that I wanted, but there wasn't really ever any teaching on you know, okay, Jesse made this much money this week, let's maybe put some aside for savings. And then you can, you know, spend a little bit on some of the things that you want. There wasn't really any of that, honestly, I didn't, I didn't really start to learn about money and financial stuff and true wealth until I got into chiropractic school, and then got my own business. And then it was, you know, a lot of the chiropractic students, you come out and you're up to your hair and debt. And, you know, how are you going to pay that back, the schools teach you how to be a chiropractor, but they don't teach you how to make money, how to run a business, how to structure the money, so you are paying off your debt in a timely manner. And there's, there's that like negativity about like debt, like, Oh, my gosh, you have doctor debt and student loan debt, and this and that. And so there really wasn't any of that. Nothing growing up, and then nothing in chiropractic School of, hey, here's what to do when you get out of school. And so you kind of had to learn as we've gone along. And so out of school, we did get a business consulting coach, because it goes back to what you said, Marcy is, you know, the whole point of like, a mentor is somebody that's been where you've been, but now they've attained what you're trying to attain, and you're kind of feeding off of them and learning from them to minimize the mistakes that you're gonna make along the way, because let's face it, you're gonna make mistakes. Absolutely. Typically, the mentors have made the bigger mistakes, and they can help guide you so that maybe your mistakes are just minimal and don't end up costing you more. And so it probably wasn't until we actually met our business consulting coach, that the idea of finances and wealth and money even really became a big factor. And then he kind of helped us change our way of thinking of, you know, the steps not bad, it's not bad debt. I mean, somebody took a chance on us to become a doctor. He could serve humanity. And so when I look at my student loan balance, I don't sit there and it's not like this big dark luminous cloud. It's I look at it as somebody gave me an opportunity, and I'm serving people. And I know that the debt will eventually be gone.
Marcy Predmore 44:54
And, and really, that's it. Don't beat yourself up over it. There is there's no There's going to be debt, money debt, it could be it could whatever that may be. But right now you had a passion. So yes, you have student debt, but then get creative and grow with it, which is what we've been doing with you and Brandon is get creative with it, grow through that dead. Don't let it Don't let it weigh on your shoulders like a weight, just make it a game, let's just get through that data,
Jessica Buttry 45:24
Exactly what we've done so recently has been, he's just hilarious. So we've had, he turned like one of our closet areas into like, his Think Tank room, I guess, I don't know. But he wrote out all of our student loans, and he's got them like on papers. And so we just paid off two big ones. And so he ripped the paper down, and he rip the paper up. And he's like, Well, our net worth just increased by however much. And so it kind of turned into this game of like, okay, you know, what do you think we can do within the next month? And so we've kind of made it fun. Versus sitting there. And, and, and looking at it and being disappointed or being, you know, looking at it, like, Oh, we haven't paid it off yet. We must be a failure. Different things like that. So
Marcy Predmore 46:09
you bet. And the other thing I want to bring up? And the reason I asked this question is because you have an ingrained message on how your dad lived and how he maneuvered money. Mom kind of went along with it. But think about this. It was truly a gift to you. Absolutely. Because now you know what you don't want to because you don't want to utilize your money the way he did. Now, I'm not saying that's bad or good. That was his decision. He was able to raise you and your sisters, it was a decision he made? No. But instead of us always, maybe putting the blame somewhere, take 100% responsibility for yourself. Absolutely. And really realize that your dad gave you an A not an amazing gift,
Jessica Buttry 47:00
insane learning opportunity.
Marcy Predmore 47:03
It's a learning opportunity. So again, I just I caught that one right away is it's something you don't want to go into a casino. But even if you did, you know, it was just really it's just going to reinforce what it is that you know, you don't want.
Jessica Buttry 47:21
Absolutely. And I think that's, oh, gosh, you like hit the nail on the head and mercy. Even like with Chiropractic and our health. You know, a lot of it stems from what our parents teach us, you know, maybe our parents, we were overweight, because that's how we ate as a child. And that's what we saw our mom making. And so that's what we grew up making or knew how to make. And so we continue that tradition. And then my parents didn't exercise, so I never exercised and so I never developed that habit of going to the gym to exercise. And a lot of people will blame put the blame on other people. They'll blame their parents because Oh, they didn't teach me right. But I think that it's it's a blessing because you can see what they did and maybe what didn't work. And then you can make the decision to take responsibility and say, I'm not going to do the same thing. I know we hear all the time. Oh, yeah, my mom had arthritis. That's why I have arthritis, or I might have diabetes, because my dad had diabetes. And there is some genetic component. But the research and science is showing us that maybe diseases one to 3% genetic, and the rest is lifestyle choices. With the health and the finance, I think we have to kind of take a look at you know, what did our parents teach us? And then grow and learn from that and then make our own decisions and stop blaming other people like, Oh, you know, I grew up in a poor family, I didn't have the opportunities as somebody else. Because that was probably my mom's side of the family. You know, she came from a poor family, they worked on the farm, they made a lot of their clothes. And so there's that thing of like, you know, when you're growing up, you want something Oh, we can't afford that. Well, now in our household, we don't say we can't afford it. We we kind of phrase it with our daughter, okay, what can you do to maybe earn the money to pay for that? Or, you know, maybe it's not we can't afford it. It's just we choose not to spend our money that way at this time. We're kind of carrying those lessons over into our children or child because we want them to, to maybe have a different outlook on it than him and I did growing up because I know his family was was similar. His mom came from a very poor family. And you can see that mentality still when we're around our family, it's very hard to be around them because that negative that Oh, that's too much money or Oh, that's too expensive. And if it doesn't go compared to what you have, and I think too expensive compared to what
Marcy Predmore 49:41
exactly and boy no truer words have been said because truly what our family sometimes are the hardest to be around. We adore them. We love them. I'm saying and grateful for them, when sometimes can deliver a message that can just take the wind out of our sails. Let's. So you know, as we have those families and we grow up with those traditions, so now,
Marcy Predmore 50:09
you shared a little bit about your traditions as a as a young woman. But then as you grew into your where you are today, I know you probably had to have some positive mentors. And I just like to ask you, and I am going to kind of focus on women right now. But can you think of one or two women that have impacted you with just your thought process and it could be money, it could be health, it could, whatever that may be, that you carry those tools that resource today?
Jessica Buttry 50:43
Yeah, so I mean, honestly, Marcy, you're probably at the top of my list for women, mentors. Thank you, because I have learned so much from you. And I, I know, when we met you guys, a few years ago, we were, we were in a place and we were unsure and uncertain and kind of you know, skip skeptical and different things like that. And, and as we've been around you guys, and gotten to know you and seen your heart and your passion. You're one of my main motivators.
Marcy Predmore 51:12
That what a gift today,
Jessica Buttry 51:14
nice, woman, you're very influential. you carry yourself so well. And you have just, you've taught us so so much. And so I will forever be grateful that we went to that chick fil a that day and mass, you know, that networking group. And then I mean, honestly, like, I'm not gonna lie, most of the stuff that I read, I noticed it is men. And there's a few women chiropractors that I look to, yeah. But honestly, some of the main influencers are men, I know, we have a pastor of a church that we used to attend, whenever we were in Texas, um, I still go back to some of his stuff, because he kind of came from the family where they would say, can't afford it, and can't do this and that and, and he came from a family of nothing, and he created a legacy. And he's continuing that legacy and passing that on to his children. So I would say, at the top of my list is definitely Marcy,
Marcy Predmore 52:05
oh, that, again, you're, you're such a blessing. And it's such a joy to be able to impart that because I thought I did grow up ordinary. But I know there's an extraordinary mesh message that you and I need to share. And I feel like, that's the gift I have to offer. So thank you for that compliment. I really appreciate it more than you'll ever know.
Jessica Buttry 52:31
And I'm not just saying that because you have me on your podcast. talked with Brandon time and time again. And I'm just like, I'm so thankful. networking group, because I'm pretty sure it was early in the morning, and I don't think we wanted to, but you were kind of like we have to we need to go. And then we ended up meeting you guys. And our lives have just changed drastically.
Marcy Predmore 52:56
Oh, yes, yes, we just lost our backdrop. But what we'll we'll kind of wrap up here. And you know what the word legacy keeps coming into play. And every week, I give you a tip of the week. And today, I'm going to change my tip of the week because this word keeps resonating with me, Jessica brought it up at the person the call, she just brought it up, excuse me at the end of the call.
Marcy Predmore 53:22
But one of the things that I want you all to think about is we talk a lot at the company that Tim and I have my husband and I have his private banking concepts. We talked about the basics of money. And at the end game, it's really not about us. It's about the legacy, the message that we're going to pass along to our, the people around us, our family, our kids, our grandkids, and our great grandkids. Legacy is truly important to carry on who we are. And Jessica, one of the things that, again, you mentioned, again, with your two with myself and even with your pastor in Texas is these messages are going to be a legacy to Chloe, and to Chloe's children. It has a lot to do with you and Brandon today because it helps you grow. But more than that, you're paving the way for a solid foundation for a legacy tomorrow. So Tip of the Week is let's talk about legacy. If anybody has questions about legacy, shoot them to me, because that's something that's so important to me, just to really focus on building a solid foundation for your legacy. So that's really my tip of the week. And Jessica I just I can't thank you enough for taking the time sharing your light on your extraordinary and allowing us to shine White on your extraordinary journey from growing up in Oklahoma on a farm ranch to Northern Colorado where you knew no one and just blazing the way for women, chiropractors, and women entrepreneurs. So thank you so much. And we look forward to having you again with us soon.
Jessica Buttry 55:24
Yeah, thank you so much, Marcy all in with one of my favorite quotes. Whether you think you can or you think you can't, either way, you're right. I
Marcy Predmore 55:36
thank you. Thank you. Thank you and happy new year, we look forward to what 2021 is going to offer for every one of us. Have an extraordinary day.
