We had the good fortune of connecting with Tony Koehler and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tony, what’s your definition for success?
This is a very interesting question because there are so many ways to define this based off the unique situation. However, my one true definition comes from a former hockey coach of mine. His definition was “success is the product of when preparation meets opportunity.” That definition has applied to every single one of my successes today. When the opportunity presents itself will you be ready? Obliviously, this is much easier to apply to a sport where you can train and practice regularly and when its game time you will have a better chance of succeeding but I believe our coach meant it little more deeply then that. If you simply word it differently, when the time presents itself are YOU prepared to succeed. Everyone wants that glory moment to score that game winning goal or touchdown but will you truly be ready for that moment. That where the level of confidence and mental acuity comes into play. However when its applied to everyday real life encounters its very difficult to truly prepare yourself. So when shit hits the fan and the pressure is weighing down on you, what are you going to do to succeed and overcome that obstacle? In short, as long as you provide opportunities for yourself and prepare yourself, through education and experiences, you will succeed. Anything is possible if your will-power is strong enough.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am the sole practitioner and owner of Kore Chiropractic & Acupuncture. I am extremely excited to be opening my own clinic. Its been a long dream of mine but honestly never knew when or how I was going to get there. So an opportunity presented itself and I jumped for it. I have networked, shadowed and worked for many different chiropractors throughout my education and with that experience I have been able to build my ideal chiropractic clinic. One where I narrow down services to specifically help patients manage pain naturally. I have also noticed some chiropractors get bad reputations of being “too expensive, “making patients come in too often,” or being a revolving door where patients are only seen for a couple minutes. I have made it a mission to break those stereotypes and provide the highest quality of care to my patients I possibly can. I have been told that I am very honest and realistic when it comes to treatment plans, and its because I treat every patients like they are my brother. My chiropractic services are only $40 right now and I even provide discounts for active EMT’s, nurses, firefighters, police officers and military personnel as a special thank you for the admirable services those people give to us! My main goal is to build amazing relationships with my patients and watch them prosper in life and continue to do the things that they love to do! Care to the KORE!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Besides seeing the staples like Flagstaff, Sedona, and the Grand Canyon. I have a few spots that are spread around but The Churchill is always a great recommendation also walking distance to many fun bars in that area like The Wilderness, Greenwood Brewery, The Tap or Killer Whale Sex Club! Other spots include Desert ridge for some more lowkey drinks and dinner, like the Sandbar, Barrio Queen or anything off of High street! Lastly, I would have to say my all time favorite place to go on Friday nights is the Buffalo Chip for the rodeo. You may need to appreciate the country scene a little more for this one but it is never a dull moment! There are a lot of fun places up there to eat dinner, ice cream and even go thrift shopping!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This is probably a little cliché, but definitely gonna have to give a lot of credit to my family. They’re are extremely supportive and always have my back no matter what the situation. We are a blue collar family that enjoy the hard labor but I was the only one to venture out into the white collar group. They have been nothing but supportive and admirable to the hard work that goes into becoming a doctor of chiropractic.
Besides the support from my family I have had many hockey coaches that have had a large impact on my success. One in particular, coach Valimont was a huge contributor to my up bringing. He taught me many life lessons that I use daily and will we be passing onto my children in the future!
