About Our Guest:

Dr. Gilles LaMarche is a chiropractor, educator, passionate healer, accomplished author, professional speaker, and inspiring certified personal development/executive coach. Dr. LaMarche found his calling as a healer when at the age of twelve he was taken to a chiropractor after years spent as an “unwell” child. His only expectation was that a chiropractor might help him resume regular activities without pain; little did he know that one meeting would change the course of his life.

For almost 40 years, he has studied the philosophy of success, a hobby that has supported his vision to share the message of health and personal responsibility. He is the author of 13 books and numerous articles focused on health and healing; The ART of Being Healthy series has been read by hundreds of thousands with contributing authors from multiple continents. In addition to his roles as Vice President of University Advancement at Life University, member of The Australian Spinal Research Foundation Research Review Panel, and appointments to numerous committees and boards in Cobb County, his current projects include the book The ART of Being Healthy – A collection of real life accounts of people healing with chiropractic; and Tribe of Chiropractic MenTORS

Gilles has learned to balance his life, enjoying a successful professional career and a wonderful personal life. His personal philosophy encompasses mind, body and spirit. He believes in the great importance of commitment and responsibility to the world in which we live. He is a husband, a doctor, a teacher, and a friend, and proud Dad to three terrific young adults, and “Papa” to three beautiful girls, and two “little men”. His mission is to help all those he meets achieve their potential. Gilles is a little man with a big heart and an open spirit. He has chosen to live his life from a position of “Loving Service – My First Technique”, a way of life he learned from his mentor Dr. James W. Parker.

Raptors Wisdom

In Toronto we are still riding high from the Raptors winning the NBA Championship! My son took this video of star Kyle Lowry at the end of the game, and I love what he said: 

Winning took hard work, not letting others tell them it couldn’t be done, and a great team of support. 

Sounds to me like the right combination for success in life and business too.
