Stories of epic romance start popping up everywhere when Valentine’s Day comes around, and they’re
Years later, when I was heading into class at college, I got a crazy phone call that ended up bringing us back together. At the time, I was scheduled to go to an event for Big Brothers Big Sisters that required a background check. I wasn’t worried about it because I have a clean history — until I got the phone call. The caller was from the program, and he said he needed to talk to me about “things that came up” in my check. Then, he started interrogating me about stuff I’d never heard about, including a DUI charge, a charge for “running over landscaping,” and even a charge of resisting arrest! All of the charges were filed in Texas, a state I hadn’t visited since I was a 12-year-old kid. I told the guy as much, and after a bit of digging, it turned out the background check had turned up the information on a different JoshWalker. Not only did he share my name, but we were also the same age and born on the exact same day! I didn't end up doing the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, but the whole incident was so crazy that I had to call and tell Marah about it. We were still friends at the time and got in touch occasionally, but this particular story of mayhem kept us on the phone talking for more than an hour. The way she tells the story, after she got off the phone, her roommates started teasing her about having a crush on me, and theywere right! We got together not long after, and we’ve been a couple for 10 years now and married for six of them. Marah is the more introverted of the two of us, but I love how passionate she gets about things like singing in our church choir, reading, and planning our vacations down to the smallest detail. (She loves to read online reviews.) When I take things too seriously and get stuck in my head, she always knows how to get me out of my funk and into a better headspace. I’m lucky to have Marah not only as a life partner but also as a business partner. Here at Chiro1Source, she helps with customer service and handles all of our accounts payable and receivable, freeing me up to do other work to help our clients. I think our complementary skillsets help us keep the business running smoothly, and I love that I can always come to her if I’m stuck on a work-related problem because she knows Chiro1Source inside and out. Between the two of us (and with the help of the rest of our amazing staff), we can handle any questions you might have about our products, prices, or other programs.
pretty much impossible to escape. A lot of them are classic boy-meets-girl tales, and seeing all of those TV rom-com ads and the rehashing of old friends’ love stories on Facebook always makes me chuckle and reflect on how off-the-wall the rekindling of my romance with mywife, Marah, reallywas. It involved Big Brothers
Big Sisters, the state of Texas, an accidental impersonator, and some seriously damaged shrubbery.
Truth be told, the first time I asked Marah out on a date was in a classic romantic way. We were in high school at the time, and I passed her a note asking her out, just like in the George Strait song “Check Yes or No.” She said yes, we started talking on AOL Instant Messenger, and that was that — at least until typical high school stuff got in the way and we broke up as most teenage couples do.
FromMarah and me to you, happyValentine’s Day! We’re proof that love can pop up from unexpected places, and we hope it finds you this year.
The Secret to Living a Longer, Healthier Life CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE? The human brain is an incredibly powerful organ. It solves complex problems, recalls forgotten memories, and triggers a dizzying array of emotions. But its most incredible power is the effect it can have on the rest of the body. When it comes to love, well, our brains certainly love it, and our bodies reflect that.

Odds are, you love coming into work every day to a clean, well-organized office. But have you given much thought to the types of cleaners being used on your floors, tables, and other equipment? If your answer is “no,” you’re not alone. Plenty of health care professionals don’t spend much time considering their cleaning products. However, it turns out that using the wrong products can be detrimental to the health of your patients, your staff, and even you! According to the EPA, many cleaning products contain chemicals that cause skin, eye, and respiratory irritation, hurting both human health and the environment. That means your patients could actually leave your office feeling worse than they did when they came in! With that in mind, Chiro1Source has started stocking a new multipurpose cleaner from Evergreen Cleaning Co. that’s nontoxic, eco-friendly, and sustainable.
Human beings thrive on a sense of connection and belonging, and studies have shown that love actually has positive effects on a person’s physical health as well as mental. The security and commitment felt in a loving relationship are shown to reduce stress by stunting the production of cortisol, the body’s stress-inducing hormone. Less stress means lower blood pressure, a healthier heart, and a lower risk of stroke, especially in men.
Healthier Immune Systems
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University found that calm, happy people can fight common colds and the flu more easily than those who are anxious or depressed. The physical benefits of love even go as far as healing wounds quicker. Small injuries inflicted on a wide test group at Ohio State University Medical Center healed nearly twice as fast on people who experienced consistent warmth and care than those who experienced hostility. In fact, the latter group needed almost a full additional day to achieve the same amount of healing as the first group. Being surrounded by love may even save your life. A statistic from the National Health Interview Survey states that single people face a 58% higher risk of mortality. Further bolstering that claim is the Harvard Health Blog, which claims happily married participants experience better health as they age when compared to peers in unhappy partnerships. In fact, the blog asserts, “People in stressful, unhappy marriages may be worse off than a single person who is surrounded by supportive and caring friends, family, and loved ones.” So, it seems the results are in: Loving someone is a healthy lifestyle choice. Even having a strong network of friends and family boosts your odds of living a long life by 50%. So, get out there and make the healthy choice for yourself and those around you by leading a life full of love. Longer, Happier Lives
Charlotte, North Carolina, residents Nick Hébert and Ryan Cook are the
masterminds behind Evergreen Cleaning Co. Both health and fitness nuts, they were inspired by their eco-conscious wives to create a safe, 100% plant-based cleaning product that would be better for them, their
kids, and the planet. This was particularly important to Ryan, who already breathed in toxins during his day job as a firefighter.

“My wife was using vinegar and baking soda as a green cleaner, but I couldn’t stand the way that smelled!” Ryan explains. “I thought, ‘There has to be a better way.’ So I started doing some research into what makes a good cleaner and alternative cleaning methods. My brother-in-law and I reached out to a couple of chiropractic offices in our area to get a feel for what they were using, and we found out most of them were using the toxic stuff — really harsh cleaners — on their equipment and beds and to clean their offices.” After months of research, Ryan and Nick released Evergreen Multi-Purpose Cleaner specifically for chiropractors, partnering with us for distribution. It’s made from simple, effective ingredients, and lightly scented with lavender essential oil for a calming patient experience.

Help Your Patients Fall Back in Love With Their Feet! VALENTINE’S DAY IS FOR ‘SOLEMATES’ For patients with foot, knee, or lower back pain, insoles and good shoes are a match made in heaven, which is why so many chiropractors sell them. If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect insole to offer in your office, consider playing matchmaker with our DoctorInsole orthotic insoles just in time for Valentine’s Day! These unique insoles were designed by a podiatric surgeon in Beverly Hills whose patients were fed up with choosing between the $600–$700 payout for custom orthotics and the mediocre support of Dr. Scholl’s. He wanted a product that was corrective, available over the counter, and affordable for most patients — so he decided to consult a team of other doctors and scientists in order to create his own. DoctorInsole was born from that inspiration. The company’s insoles, which come in multiple variations designed for different genders, shoe types, and activity levels, include a top coat made with layers of memory foam and a semi-rigid polypropylene shell. Each insole is crafted in an orthotic lab and utilizes memory foam that takes an active impression as you walk, which eliminates the need for heat guns or molds taking up your time. We’ve heard patients love these insoles in part because they can finally afford to buy multiple pairs of quality insoles and avoid the hassle of transferring a single pair from shoe to shoe. Better yet, the insoles are tailored to their shoe types! The Women’s FitStep insole, for example, is designed for tennis shoes and ideal for running, hiking, and playing sports, while the Women’s MultiStep insole was made for professional flats or boots with low heels. We stock seven different DoctorInsole products on our website, including a unisex option and a DoctorInsole Starter Pack. Because many patients buy multiple insole types, if you choose to play matchmaker this month, try stocking up on a few different varieties. Your patients’ feet will thank you, and so will your bottom line.
“If anyone understands the importance of a healthy, functioning body, it’s chiropractors, and we had them in mind when we created this product,” Nick says.

Increased Use of Data Analytics
“Big data” is intimidating. For years, sifting through customer data and extracting valuable information that can be used to grow businesses was something that only the largest companies had the time, funds, and expertise to do. However, more programs that reduce the upfront investment and expertise necessary to contextualize customer data are popping up. If you can make use of your customers’ data, you can give them an experience with your business that they won’t find many other places. Continued Reliance on Social Media Social media marketing remains an effective tool for attracting customers to your small business, even if the tools continue to change. While marketing on Facebook and Instagram might seem like old news, marketing on trendier apps, like TikTok, Pinterest, or Snapchat, can still work to your business’s benefit. A recent study showed that 45% of consumers head to social media when they have a question about something — are you going to be there to answer it? Keeping up with the latest and greatest tech trends in small-business management can be exhausting, but in an age where technological advancement is accelerating faster than ever, it’s necessary for the survival of businesses of all shapes and sizes.
businesses and those beneficial for small businesses continues to blur. While the latest software programs were once only available to large companies that could afford them, some of these programs have also become available and profitable for small businesses to use. In an age of increasing connectivity, these are a few tech trends that small businesses should watch out for. CollaborationWith Artificial Intelligence While it certainly shouldn’t replace every customer interaction, using AI software programs for small tasks — like email marketing, data entry, accounting, and some low-stress forms of customer service — is invaluable to small businesses. Delegating menial tasks to AI can free up time for you to focus on those more important face-to-face interactions with your customers.
