How’s it going?
Hey, good news for me. Yesterday I think that
I randomly found a person who can help me with
a lot of my operations. Things are starting to
grow so fast in so many different
areas it’s really, really hard to keep up.
Actually this is a good lesson. When you
have a problem, and if you ask everyone and
anyone for help, you’ll find the solution.
This is what I did with bipolar disorder back
in the day and this is what I did with my problem
of handing operations AND using these new technological
things that we bought but never use.
I am actually bringing on two more people to
People ask, how can I afford to hire all
these people? It’s not easy at all. Some think
that I am making millions but others know the
truth when they look at my expenses. I am NOT
making millions. But I firmly believe this
is a tremendous good cause and I really enjoy
working in this field so to speak.
NOTE-I am NOT a doctor, lawyer, insurance
agent, or other kind of professional. I am
NOT offering medical, legal or professional
Anyway, the good news is I finally believe
I have the people in place to help me with
a bunch of technology to speed up the
distribution of new f.ree information that
involves audio and video.
I have wanted to do this for, well forever
but I didn’t know how to do it. Everyone who
currently works for me is way behind in
what they are doing so I couldn’t ask
them. I found some new people who will
be able to help.
I wanted to talk about some signs of a bad
I did an interview the other day with a psychiatric
nurse and she said she was amazed how many people
she knew that had bad doctors but stayed with them
for years and years and years. My mom
had a bad doctor and did the same.
I think it’s because people either don’t believe
there are other choices or they don’t know what
a bad doctor is. It’s kind of like a person in
a bad marriage that doesn’t even know it’s
a bad marriage. Ever meet someone like that?
They make excuses that their husband is never
home, drinks all the time and hits them “occasional.”
OR a wife that is totally abusive, controlling
and hits the husband. He says, “well she is
just overly excited a lot.” Know what I mean?
Anyway, if you need help finding a doctor or
therapist and want to sort through a ton of
them you can use the f.ree bonus in my courses/

Now if that’s not your situation, let’s
talk about the signs of a bad doctor.
For the person with bipolar disorder some
of the signs are:
BIG SIGN #1:
The doctor doesn’t listen to you
This happens a lot I hear. You have problems
and you tell the doctor and he/she doesn’t
The doctor doesn’t take notes or remember
what’s going on from visit to visit. Now
we can’t expect a doctor to remember every
single thing you have ever told them over
a super long period of time. But if you
find your doctor forgets lots of stuff they
shouldn’t, that’s a bad sign.
The doctor is never around for emergencies. Again,
if you call the doctor 5 days a week every month
with an emergency then well they probably won’t
be around. Why? Well because you are kind of abusing
the system so to speak. I know people will get
mad that I said that but doctor’s have lives as well.
Anyway, I am not here to debate that. What I am saying
is, if you call over several months a few times
for an emergency and the doctor doesn’t get back
to you fast or someone in his/her office and this
happens repeatedly, that’s a bad sign.
The doctor has massive turn over with their
receptionist. This is a huge problem. I know doctors
reading this will think:
“Wow, I was with him until he said this, why he
is saying this? He is out of his mind. He has no
clue what he is talking about. What’s with this guy
Anyway, here’s the deal. Massive receptionist turnover
is a BAD SIGN. This means one or more of the following:
the doctor isn’t paying enough causing turnover
the doctor is way to hard to work with causing turnover
the doctor doesn’t have a good system to hire a receptionist
and keeps on getting the wrong person over and over
If you see like 3 to 4 receptionists in like 6 months
and there isn’t a really good reason like well so and
so left because they had a bad, so and so left because
well her husband moved and she went with him, he randomly
got a great new big promotion, and so and so left because
she had to devote all her time to taking care of her child
that now was diagnosed with Cancer.
Something like that. If you doctors receptionists vanish
and this happens a lot, ask what happen to them. It’s a negative
if you get the run around and don’t get a straight answer. Know
what I mean?
One last thing, one more receptionists that one has, the
more chances stuff gets lost. What kind of stuff you might
be wondering? Well your files and also releases.
W A R N I N G ! ! !
In my courses/systems I tell people to call every
three months to make sure the doctor still has
the medical releases you have signed. Make sure
you do that. I bet 99% of people do not do that.
I do it all the time. Guess who you are talking
to? The receptionist.
With my mom’s new good doctor, she had two receptionists.
Between the first and the second, the releases my mom
signed were lost and I went from having the ability
to talk to her to not having the ability to talk
to her (the doctor). One of the receptionists lost
I learned the hard way. Call and make sure yours
are in place.
Your doctor is in a really bad part of town where you feel
your life is at risk when you visit. This is a bad sign
because this means the doctor isn’t thinking or could
have money problems. Don’t laugh but I have heard this
so many times it’s amazing.
Your doctor appears to have little to no knowledge
of bipolar disorder. You ask questions about stuff
in the news about bipolar disorder. They say, “huh?
What’s that? Who’s that? What do you mean?”
These are all bad signs. Make sure you have a
great doctor who specializes in bipolar disorder
and illnesses like it. Meaning in some cases, people
can be misdiagnosed so if you have a doctor who
specializes in bipolar disorder and depression
he/she is a little more well rounded. But you don’t
want them where they are like an expert in 17
different areas. Why? You can’t keep up.
I know what I am talking about because I focus
on bipolar disorder AND borderline personality
disorder. That’s my two focuses. I know about
schizophrenia but don’t put in the time like
I do with bipolar disorder.
I only have one person I think with schizophrenia
that works for me as well. Maybe not? I actually
The doctor sees you for minutes or seconds and
offers assembly like fraudulent chiropractic
What do I mean? Well if you go to the doctor
and he/she is like “hey how’s it going? How
are you feeling? Great okay see you next
time” and only a few minutes go by,
That’s like what bogus chiropractors
do. They bring you in, spend minutes cracking
your back and then put you out the door and
say, see you in 2 days. It’s like a scam.
How do I know? Well I have friends in
chiropractic that do NOT do this but they
tell me all the time this is common. This is
unfortunately common in mental health as well.
Now 15 and 20 minutes is all you will get.
My mom gets I think 30 minutes but my mom
pays more. My mom’s current doctor charges
her the most any doctor has ever charged her.
BUT she does a darn good job. Even my dad
who is famous for buying everything and
anything on price alone agrees she is well
worth it. He and I learned the hard way.
Anyway, you are better off paying more
to find a doctor who spends at least 15 minutes
Now there are some ways to turn the 15 minutes into
24 minutes or 28 minutes :). I reveal that in
Actually I hope when I say it’s in my courses/systems
you don’t think that I am just trying to sell
you. The thing is, there is a ton to learn and
I can only put so much in emails, podcasts, etc.
I try to give as much as I can but some you
have to get by making an investment. I hope
These emails take at least 1 hour to formulate,
write and distribute.
Okay so back to the signs, the last sign
The doctor doesn’t believe in anything other
than bipolar medications. He/she doesn’t think
that therapy, diet, exercise, stress reduction,
sleeping well and on time has any impact on
bipolar disorder. Medication is critical. NO
QUESTION ABOUT IT. But there are other things
that can aid and help.
The doctor doesn’t believe in bipolar disorder
or labeling people. This might sound crazy but
there are doctors like this. These doctors
generally give the wrong treatment plans
and put people on the road to a disaster.
Again, I am not a doctor and nothing I am
saying should be used to diagnose, treat
or prevent and disorder or illness.
Seriously, please don’t think that I am a doctor.
Hey, tomorrow I am going to talk about
how to turn a great doctor into a really
bad one fast. Lots of people do this and then
get all mad at the doctor when it’s their own
Okay I have to run.
I have to do three interviews
today, go the library, talk to one consulting client,
review a new computer software program, interview
two new potential people, look over 4 new almost
completed projects, write 4 articles, look at this
murder case of someone with bipolar disorder,
review a new podcast I am going
to be releasing, and then record some audio.
Catch you tomorrow.
