Testimonials

  • Three years after hiring Jim, my practice continues to grow and be more profitable." Chris Osterlitz, DC Eugene, Oregon

  • “I think that one of the most important things that Jim is teaching me is to run my Corp as a Corp and not as a sole proprietor. We are finding that there are many savings when you work your Corporation properly.”   Dr. Carr, DC Seattle, WA

  • “I am impressed with your knowledge, your intuitive skills and your ability to put it all together to help docs in the field.”

  • “My office suffered an accounting and bookkeeping disaster in 2005. As a result, we paid an ungodly amount of taxes. In 2006, I consulted with Jim Bowen to change the financial direction of the practice. Jim recommended a new accountant and patiently educated me on how to organize my practice and my bookkeeping to minimize taxes. After filing an amended return for 2005, with the proper bookkeeping and a new accountant, we received a refund of $30,000! Need I say any more? I highly recommend Jim’s services to any small business.”

  • “My husband and I became Jim Bowen’s clients in the spring of 2009. Prior to joining Jim, we had actively and happily participated in David Singer’s programs for 6 years. We knew how to get new patients, how to keep them, and how to manage staff. What we couldn’t figure out was how to take our practice to the next level. We were doing well but we kept hitting a growth “ceiling”. Jim came into our practice, spent the entire day with us, and to put it simply, helped us “see the light”. Jim is like no other consultant we’ve ever met. He’s very easy to connect with. He’s caring, personable and objective. His expertise is beyond compare. im helped us get an $11,000.00 tax refund from the IRS within the first 3 months! Our collections have increased by $120,000.00 in 7 months!Our marketing calendar is planned for the next 5 months. Jim helps keep us focused and true to our goals. If you want to make a rapid change with your practice, don’t try to reinvent the wheel, HIRE JIM! You’ll be so very thankful.”

  • “I attended your seminar last night at the WSCA headquarters. I was the Norwegian. I called my wife during the two hour drive home. I told her that your brief seminar was the best one I had ever been to. Frankly she was quite frustrated by the end of our conversation. I relayed that you had provided answers as to why several of our friends had little or no tax worries; they always had these nice write offs, and they were doing these creative tax strategies. I had always told her that we had a great tax accountant (and I knew he was because he set up our chiropractic business as a PLLC) and these clever ways to reduce taxes didn’t apply to us. (Do you remember that I thought perhaps that although my business was a PLLC, I was pretty sure that we filed a Schedule “C”? BINGO.) I have survived for sixteen years in chiropractic and never thrived. I learned how to be a chiropractor but I have never been interested on how to be a good businessman. Money has never been a big motivator for me. I am forever the optimist- it is perpetually “going to get better”, we will “get there” someday. I feel like I have been standing in water that has raised above my mouth, but not above my nostrils. FINALLY you provided some concrete ideas on how we can “pull the plug” and let the water start to drain away. Perhaps with your help and attitude adjustment, I may even make it to dry land!"

  • “Dear Jim, Your services helped me restructure my corporation status, pay myself a salary, and set up my books for the best tax savings ever! Instead of paying out to the government I get to keep more. And that makes me happy. Every year I would have to write the big check that my accountant told me I owed.  With all the restructuring, I no longer do that. This has given me a lot of peace of mind.”

  • I’m currently wrapping up my first year of consulting with Bowen Consulting Group. I have to say in retrospect it was well worth every penny. In fact, business has been doing so well as a result of the consulting that the fee would be a no brainer at this point.  I noticed the consulting fees were essentially reimbursed almost immediately by the strategies Jim helped to set up. I could not have anticipated how far the office and everything else in my life has changed since that time. I was challenged to move out of my comfort in business and personal life and as a result have hit all of my career goals to this point. Our office, business and life are completely transformed in a major and positive way. We've added multiple staff, doubled and now on pace to triple collections. Thanks for everything Jim and Kim! Dr Chris Z. Portland, Oregon

  • "Jim Bowen has been assisting my clients in the strategies and execution of their financial planning for over two years. My clients have reported glowing reviews of Jim’s work and his deep concern for their financial well-being. Glowing reviews are wonderful, but the true success of his work is in how much money he saves my clients each year. All of my clients have reported substantial savings and a marked decrease in their financial liability to the IRS at the end of the year. He also councils them on numerous issues from negotiating leases to buying their next home. Jim is a stanch supporter of “Chiropractic” and understands the unique challenges chiropractors face. This alone has a value hard to put a price on. His approach is direct and to the point and most importantly without judgement. He just wants to see good Chiropractors do well and have successful practices they can be proud of. I fully endorse Jim’s work and I would recommend him to any Chiropractor who is serious about his or her business and wants to create a legacy for the future.”

  • “Three years ago I began using the services of Jim Bowen. Not only did he save me a lot of money immediately, but he also helped me plan for the future. He has kept me focused on my business and personal financial life. He has returned my calls and has made himself available when I needed to speak with him. I feel as he has been better than any management company – as it is not what you earn, but what you keep. I would highly refer anyone to Mr. Bowen, as if I had known about Mr. Bowen I probably would have saved over 1/2 million dollars over the past ten years in practice.”

  • “We have been running a practice for 23 years and in that time, have seen many things. There have been scams that we have narrowly escaped. Given that, we are always leery of franchise building coaches and investments gurus. Though we had heard good things about Jim Bowen, we were still reluctant to meet with him. We were, and have continued to be, delightfully surprised. With his guidance, we have finally been able to get clinic cash flow completely under control. He has always told us the way that things truly are. This man is a financial genius. After 23 years of practice we have been referred to many accountants who were said to be the best in their field. Unfortunately, we would still receive surprises come tax season. Despite the exorbitant hourly fees that most accountants charge, we received little help and still had financial difficulties. Mr. Bowen charges a standard annual fee. For this you can speak to him as frequently as needed and he will quickly and completely solve the problems that arise. In closing, we recommend Mr. Bowen to any chiropractic business owner. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. You will find yourself in very capable hands and dealing with much less financial stress. A gift we all desire and deserve.”

  • “We just had these two speak [James Bowen and Robert Zielke] and it was quite an eye-opener. They are both attorneys. Robert Zielke sheds light on Compliance Audits (warning: this is rather scary, but necessary) and Jim Bowen speaks on how to save money on taxes in a very informative and entertaining way. Wish I would have heard … and listened to him 27 years ago. Jim is from Whitefish Montana and Robert is from Seattle and his Law firm is a Platinum Member of the WSCA. They are offering to travel around to a few places within our state for no charge and put on Free 2 hour/ 2 CE seminars for sharing this info with our docs. They make their money when doctors hire them for their services yet the only pressure applied is that which you might place on yourself, after hearing this information. It’s a win/win and they only ask docs to make a donation to our WCT.Give it some consideration and if you have any questions, I’m always available.”

  • "Jim, Just a heart felt thank you for information. Although I was unable to become a client,I went to your seminar last June and it has changed my whole business and financial picture. My debt load was killing me. Much of it was the yearly 10k plus loan in order to pay my the remainder of my taxes. I could never get out from this burden. I implemented many of the “big picture” ideas in June of 2007 and cut my tax burden by roughly 8,000 K. I am traveling to Washington D.C. in a couple weeks and told my vice president (wife) to bring our company note book to record minutes from our meeting there! An idea that you suggested at your seminar. Thanks again for your invaluable information.”

  • “Dr. Gardner and I have been with Jim Bowen for approximately 1-1/2 years, and LI must say he have helped us tremendously. Jim is always available when I have questions, and he never makes me feel my questions are silly. He truly cares about making our practice as successful as possible, but does not judge if we choose not to implement something. I wish that we would have known about Jim when we started our practice 14 years ago. Thanks for all your expertise.”

  • “I have been meaning to send you a HUGE thank you for giving Ladd the “kick in the butt” he sooooo needed! It takes a lot of stress off of me and gives me hope for our financial future knowing you are involved! I know their is still SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much to be concerned about, but I will be forever grateful for steering him in the right path! Thank you thank you thank you for keeping on him and following up with him! You are a God-send and answer to my prayers and for that I will forever be grateful!”

  • The cost of hiring Jim to consult with us and teach us how to make our practice run as an actual business has been tremendously valuable.  It's like the gift that keeps on giving year after year.  We have easily made 10 times back the initial fee when you consider how much we have saved over the past 3 years alone.  Jim is always available and returns our calls quickly.  He cares about us as individuals as well.  I would have no reservations in hiring Jim Bowen to help you with your business.  He is awesome!

  • “I signed a contract with Jim Bowen when I began my practice after being an associate doctor on the advice of several chiropractors in the Billings area.  Because this is my first year in business I can’t really tell you how much I’ve saved, etc.  However, I do feel like I am saving because I have someone in my corner who is helping me to set up the business aspect of practice in a way that is profitable for me and using their experience to prevent costly mistakes. It has been great to call Jim when I have a question and feel as though I’ve gotten a valid response.  Jim also sat down with my wife and I and spent a couple of hours getting to know us and really tried to personalize our business strategies. The personal attention is second to none, and it is very easy to get a hold of Jim outside of business hours.”

  • “I have been working with Jim Bowen this past year. He came highly recommended by some very successful, highly respected colleagues of mine.At first, I didn’t think I could afford to, but now I realize I couldn’t afford not to.  I consulted with Jim because my colleagues told me that if Jim didn’t think he could save me $10,000 the first year he wouldn’t even accept me as a client. Jim’s expertise, guidance, and genuine concern for his clients is phenomenal.  My only regret is that I didn’t meet him sooner.  I urge you to consult with Jim and his team to see what they can do for you.  If you care about your business the way I do mine, you will hire Jim Bowen to be your Chief Financial Officer.  He will take all the time you need to get you on track.  It’s hard to say enough about Jim – no matter how much I will gush over him, he will over-deliver. When I sit down to write this letter, I’m amazed at how far we’ve come this year.  I don’t like to think of where I’d be without him. The bottom line is he will save you lots of money and stress by doing what he does, by helping your business to function as a business should.”

  • “Working with Jim Bowen has not only saved me money, it has given me confidence in my business aspect of my practice.He looks at your practice from top to bottom, inside and out and teaches you how to maximize its potential.  He works with all types of DC’s and therefore can give great advice on all aspects of practice.  I am confident about my business future based on Jim’s advice. Thanks Jim.”

  • “Dear Jim, Some time ago you asked for an endorsement of your services from John and myself, and while there was much to say, about our “experience” with you, we were honestly still waiting for results – perhaps because we had signed on after our taxes had already been filed and we had to wait a whole year to see if it was really worth while. Some of your recommendations we already knew needed to be done, but seeing it put in writing really gave us a push. We had to work through some serious growing pains as individuals, as a couple and as a practice. It was no picnic! However, last month we completed two monumental tasks that we would not have been able to accomplish so soon had we not made the changes you recommended. To coin a phrase “the results are in”. Restructuring our tax status, and working with the guidelines set out by yourself and Mr. Zielke, and with Mark Terdle in our accounting corner, John and I were able to pay off his student loans 10 years sooner than scheduled, and finish remodeling our clinic (which will enable us to really grow our practice). Please consider the following as our endorsement of fact with our heartfelt thanks! My husband measures remarkable results in the health of patients who follow his chiropractic treatment plans, and as bookkeeper for our clinic I can clearly measure financial improvements that justify the effectiveness of Jim Bowen’ counsel. We started working with Jim in 2007 and in just over a year of implementing the changes he advised we were able to: Pay off John’s student loan 10 years ahead of schedule, remodel our clinic, save $30,000 in taxes, and increase our NET worth by $95,000. Results can be measured – results count. Thanks Jim!”

  • “Jim Bowen has been assisting my clients in the strategies and execution of their financial planning for over two years.  My clients have reported glowing reviews of Jim’s work and his deep concern for their financial well-being.  As a result of my implementing these recommendations and the follow-up, I have saved more than $11,000 thus far.”

  • “Hi Amy, Just wanted to let you know that Andrea (my wife) and I met with Jim last Saturday. This guy is beyond phenomenal. I have never in my life even imagined anyone could do for our tax problems what Jim can do. After a 4 hour session with him in our office our heads were spinning. Looks like we will be saving three times or more in taxes than what it cost to hire him, and that’s just for the last part of this year! Next year we will save so much money that it makes me giddy to even think about it. And this is only what he is doing for us with our tax situation. The other input and suggestions he made were priceless. I can’t thank you enough for turning us on to him. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

  • “I’ve been working with Jim for one year and I am very pleased with his expertise, responsiveness and common sense approach to business and finances. Jim has helped me understand the basics of operating a business – adhering to corporate governance guidelines, setting up accounting procedures, including choosing appropriate software, selecting outside vendors such as payroll and accounting services and establishing salary and distribution thresholds. Jim is very willing to comment on my accounting practices and to make recommendations for tweaking those practices throughout the year, recognizing that businesses are dynamic and that periodic adjustments are necessary to respond to changing business environments. I know I can rely on Jim for timely, appropriate and insightful support.”

  • “My husband and I run a small chiropractic office. Initially we started out as sole proprietors. When we met Jim Bowen and he suggested incorporating our business, he explained all of the pros and cons so that we could make an educated and comfortable decision. Since incorporating our business, Jim’s financial and accounting recommendations have saved us money (especially in the area of self-employment tax) and have helped us to better prepare for retirement. Mr. Bowen has always been available to provide answers to questions and to offer professional advice that has consistently been proven to be a positive influence on our business financially and motivationally. We have benefited from and sincerely value Jim’s extensive experience and knowledge of business practices and tax laws. He has also been very helpful in assisting with our personal and business goal setting. Jim has always made us feel as though he genuinely cares for us as individuals, not just one of his clients. We would recommend Mr. Bowen’s services to all businesses, small or large, of any variety.”

  • “Dear Jim, I should have written this quite a while ago, but THANK YOU for all the valuable tax and strategic planning advice you have given me since becoming your client. Tax-wise you helped me save thousands and more importantly, regain a sense of control over my financial portfolio. I am happier man for not over-subsidizing our government’s follies. The Strategic Planning – or shall I say LIFE planning – was an unexpected bonus I received with your consulting. I would have been pleased to part with some sound tax advice. Instead you gave me this and helped me develop the clarity to chart a course for my future that I may not have seen on my own. Thanks again for the positive impact you’ve made on my life and best wishes for a happy holiday season."

  • “Dear Colleague, Initially I was very skeptical of any consultant because I didn’t think they could improve my business, much less understand it. But out of frustration with previous accounting advice and the desire to move the business in a different direction, I contacted James Bowen. He was recommended from a friend of mine, Tom Necela. I called Jim on Monday and he was at my office on Friday. He spent the weekend with me and started going through my business. Right away he pointed out things I can do to streamline and improve my business image. He also went through my tax returns, business structure, marketing plans, patient processing, and billing operations. Then he started making suggestions for improved revenue generation and more importantly, take home income. He then provided me with a customized seventeen page report on ways to improve the practice. I am so excited for net, take-home income next year. I can already see a significant increase through 2009. I wanted to tell you how appreciative I am that I have used James Bowen as a financial, and accounting consultant. I am very pleased and very impressed with how thorough and how speedy the individualized information was furnished. James is very, very good. Please contact me with any questions, I’ll highly recommend him.”

  • “Jim inspired me to fix up my very successful office so it looked as good as it worked. Jim gave me some great savings on my taxes and allowed me to be the entrepreneur I wanted to be. Jim’s first look at my corporate structure will save me far more this year alone than his fees. I recommend Jim as a ‘no-brainer’ to decrease your taxes and increase profits. Thanks, Jim."

  • “My wife, Patrice and I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Bowen in the autumn of 2004 through the referral of a close friend. Since that time he has changed our lives for the better significantly. He has helped us to structure our business is such a manner that the tax savings alone have added tens of thousands of dollars to our bottom line. It is difficult to list all of the areas in our business and that have benefited as a result of our association with Jim. I shudder to think of all the wasted money over the 21 years of practice prior to meeting Jim. He has been an absolute blessing to know. He is the poster child of “never promising more than he can deliver and ALWAYS delivering more (significantly more) than he promises. Our tendency has always been to question the advice provided regarding business and tax issues. However, with Jim the advice has always been sound and of good judgment. No gimmicks or slick and slippery plans. The advice he has provided and continues to provide is terrific. However, the telephone calls and emails I receive from individuals I’ve referred to Jim say more than I ever could. To a person, the calls and emails are all communications of thanks for the referral.”

  • “Jim is a wizard.  He has an uncanny ability to sort through the myriad of concerns, practice parameters, financial data and old habits to come up with a practice plan that is both particularly insightful and motivating. He did this for us about 2 1/2 months ago and we are growing and seeing the a clear path to retirement. I am excited about Chiropractic and teaching patients to be healthy in a new and more comprehensive manner. Patients are feeling this caring and sending in their friends and family.  A great win-win situation. Jim is more than a chiropractic consultant, more than a tax attorney and more than an accountant and even more than all three.  We have found an understanding, knowledgeable friend to call on with questions about current practice and financial advice. After being in practice for 30 years I thought I knew a lot. Well, I was surprised when I found that my understanding of my own profession was a small slice of the whole and that Jim Bowen had a wider perspective. I highly recommend his consulting and the allied professionals that he has collected to assist in correcting our financial foibles and directing our planning to help more people with Chiropractic.”

  • “As a newer doc, I really appreciated Jim’s input in how to improve my practice. He is great at helping doctors become more knowledgeable regarding various tax implications and corporate structures. He really wants the best for his clients and has helped me operate like a corporation and become more efficient. This has led to increased satisfaction and a more profitable clinic.”

  • “Two years ago, I saw Jim Bowen at a seminar about taxes and saving money. I love my profession, but I’m not much of a businessman, and was still operating as a sole proprietor, hemorrhaging cash for no good reason other than ignorance. His initial “hook” was to get my business by saving me multiples of his fee in taxes, but his advice has since gone so much further than that. My initial contact with Jim Bowen was, in a word, depressing. He showed me how bad my office looked, tore apart my business and practice methods, and showed me giant “blind spots” in my life I hadn’t seen before. I was a professional, but I wasn’t acting like a business. Jim Bowen unwittingly has become the best practice coach I have ever had in the eight years I’ve been in business. One of my favorite quotes I took away from our meeting was, “What you are and what you choose to do is the same thing.” Since meeting with, and in part thanks to, Jim Bowen, I have seen remarkable changes in my practice and my life. I follow most of his advice when it comes to business, and he’s never steered me wrong. He’s what I call “My Business Advisor”. Even now, I still call with questions about changes that are going on in the business world, and Jim Bowen always takes my call. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about Jim Bowen at my office, (206) 343-3325."

  • “Our life has changed since we met you due in large part because of your help. Leah and I were talking and we were able to go back to our meeting with you when a lot started to change. It is easy to look at the books and say that you helped us save a lot of money. Anyone that works with you can easily say the same. You helped inspire us to be more organized, to have higher standards, to be efficient, and to simply work smarter not harder. Just the simple way in which you interact with us providing an incredible level of personalized customer service, sparked us to look for ways to do the same for our patients. We took these and other universal lessons from your great service and applied it to the other areas of our life. Our success has been much more than financial …Thank You!"

  • “I want to tell any doctor business owner who pays taxes –– working with Jim Bowen is a NO BRAINER. Jim found over 200,000.00 in additional write-offs for my two companies.That is awesome, and I feel very well prepared for what ever tax changes may be coming down the pike. Thanks Jim."

  • “Yesterday I heard back from my new accountant and he delivered the news that I was going to pay $50,000 less in taxes this year. That makes you my new hero because without your constructive input and expert advise (not to mention consistently pressing me to get the important things done) it never would have happened. The best news is how I feel about my practice now. It’s making money again, without making any legal or ethical compromises.”

  • “I really appreciate Jim’s expertise in the business side of chiropractic. He has been a great friend and can quickly re-energize your practice economics. would encourage every DC to become a client and benefit from his proven and outstanding business guidance.”

  • “Aside from saving us thousands of dollars in taxes right off the bat and thousands more the following year, Jim has helped change my thinking from being a doctor in a practice to an owner of a business.  He has given me valuable strategies in marketing, taxes and business and has demonstrated his vast experience with chiropractic time and again.  Jim’s resources are deep and he is always there to answer questions.  Jim’s report of findings on me was an eye opener – one of the most comprehensive and valuable tools I have."

  • “Dear Jim, Thanks so much for being the person you said you would be. Of course the news of the refund is fantastic, but I appreciate your insight, recognizing the problems and working with people who are the best in their field.”

  • “We just arrived home and I wanted to thank you for your time and the HOPE you have given me. I wish we had met you YEARS ago, however, better late than never.  I know you will get us on the right track and instill some discipline in us which will allow us to refocus and feel the relief of the burden we are now carrying. Thank you so very much!!!”

  • “If you are a sole proprietor. If you are going to build a building. If you are thinking of expanding your practice to a new facility. You REALLY need to contact Jim Bowen immediately for consulting! He is extremely knowledgeable with the chiropractic profession, corporate structure, taxation, hippa compliance, and business procedure. Jim is well read, caring, and enjoys helping chiropractors. I have been in practice for over 27 years and have had a large and successful practice. Although, I have worked with great coaches to build high volume and increase collection; I have never worked with someone like Jim Bowen. I wish I would have met him sooner. He looks at our practice to increase profit, decrease tax liability, and run the practice as a business. Although, Jim gave us invaluable advice on the finish work of our new 4,000 sq. foot building. Jim guided us through the process of changing from a sole-proprietor to a corporation. Jim is always available by phone and e-mail. He is a remarkable man with good ideas. If the consulting fee is holding you back …. figure out how to arrange payment. After only five months of his consulting we have gained his fees back four fold.The exciting part is we will be able to continue reaping the benefits for years to come.” Thanks Jim!!!

  • "I have been working with Jim for about a year now.  He has taken my practice from being in debt to now having the problem of where to invest all the money the practice is generating.  He is always there to motivate me (sometimes even gently!). He is always looking at the “big” picture and sees the forest where I tend to focus on the trees.  Easily the best practice management partner I could have.”

  • “I started in solo practice 5 years ago with a prior history of success and a game plan to continue the upward trend. The years have not been kind and left their scars of experience. The unpaid bills, backlog of taxes only continued to pile up with no sign of relief. The downturn of the economy was an easy excuse to blame for all my failed efforts, but that still did not keep the lights on. I consulted billing firms, found the best CPA to resurrect me from the grave I was in, but all they seem to be able to do was read me my last rites. My brother told me of a guy that seemed to know his stuff and begged me to listen to him. On borrowed money, I attended his meeting and found a fountain of ideas and had so many doors open to me, in that first sitting, that in less than a month, I saw myself in the black, the office structured properly, and even my tax issues became a thing of the past. The money spent on his behalf was the best investment I have ever made in myself. I can’t say enough of how valuable Jim has been to me personally, and my business.   Five stars from me!!!!!!”

  • “I have used Jim Bowen for the past year and I can honestly tell you my husband and I feel that hiring Jim was the best money we ever spent! Jim is professional and will give you practical, no nonsense and useful advice. He is extremely knowledgeable and has exceptional intellect in all aspects of finances and taxes and if there is something he doesn’t know he will find out for you or refer you to a qualified and knowledgeable expert who can. Jim has always been readily available and prompt to respond to all our emails and questions butthe very best thing about Jim is that I guarantee he will save you money!”

  • “Mr. Bowen’s improvement list is concise, tactically sound, and frames the scope of work to be accomplished in the practice. As a professional note – in 34 years of consulting I have never seen a list of recommendations containing 70+ needed improvements.” Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.”

  • “I have been a chiropractor for 15 years and have tried 5 different practice management companies. All of them taught me valuable lessons, but none of them were able to budge my practice numbers or my bottom line. Jim Bowen not only got to the heart of my practice dysfunction, he taught me how to run a business. After implementing Jim’s Report of Findings, my practice has grown 30% in just 2 months! Thanks again for the positive impact you’ve made on my life and best wishes for a happy holiday season.”

  • “Thank you for helping me with my practice Jim, the perspective that I gained was invaluable You helped me move my practice forward in ways that I would not have come up with on my own, and my practice is thriving as a result of your help.  We saved more than double your fee in taxes our first year working with you. The plan that you developed for me gave me principles and strategies that I will continue to use year after year, and pay dividends for the rest of my career. Thank you for your help.”

  • The business and tax strategies that were implement saved the clinic in the first year more than three times what was paid for Jim’s coaching program! We also made numerous changes to the look and function of the clinic based on Jim’s recommendations that definitely grew the business and added a lot of positive energy for both the patients and the staff! I now count Jim as more than just a business/practice consultant but a “truly” caring and giving person who has become a good friend! If you want to make and keep more money in your practice, Jim Bowen’s coaching program will make it happen!”

  • “First of all, I was caught up in the real estate market. The crash caused a state of financial crisis. I’m normally an extremely positive person. I was getting to the point I couldn’t see my way out. Jim came along and I will never forget his words; “you will get out of this, you are not realizing your assets. Of course the first thing was getting me a $30,000 refund on my last two years of taxes. You helped me move my practice forward in ways that I would not have come up with on my own, and secondly, he suggested selling my second satellite practice. He helped me find a lending institute to finance the purchasing doctor. At the time getting a loan was almost impossible. “He also assessed my practice. He showed me many ways to optimize and gave me a report of findings with 90 items to maximize my practice potential. All of them were very detailed and effective. I had previously paid $14,000 a year for a practice management group. Jim’s information gave a different insight to how the business aspect of my practice should run. The information he gives is vital to business success and he costs much less than the practice management companies. My wife of 19 years says it’s nice to have her positive husband back. Our wonderful life is back. Jim, I cannot thank you enough for sharing your caring wisdom.”

  • “As I look back over the past 32 years as a Chiropractor, I realize that I have done a few things right, and probably a lot of things wrong. Getting Jim Bowen as my Tax Advisor was definitely one of the things I did right. I have been a client of Jim’s for 6 years. During that time I have not only seen my practice double, but I have been able to keep more of the taxable income. I am sure I could pay for his fees 10 times over with my tax savings. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually gets back to you when you call. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually has a sense of humor. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually cares about his clients. Unlike most attorneys, I feel that Jim cares more about my money than the money he makes from me. Well you get the idea … Jim is always there when I need him, and ready to give me the right advice. Jim gives great tax, business, and professional advice, all rolled up in one.”

  • “I consider Mr. Bowen an asset to my business and a mentor to me personally. He has such a wealth of knowledge and an incredible amount of experience. He will expose your weaknesses and give you ideas on how to improve, grow and achieve your dreams! I highly recommend Mr. Bowen and look forward to continuing our business relationship for years to come. Thank you for everything.”

  • “Three years ago I made a decision to hire James Bowen to consult for my practice. I was in a very transitional time in my life and my practice was umm … floundering? The potential was there but I was not running it like a business. Jim came in and started laughing!! Anyone who’s been to his seminar has seen my awesomely ugly scale that I left at the front door. Well, after he stopped laughing, he started talking and talking and talking until I thought my head was going to pop off. How can anyone get that much energy just off of caffeine? I went home and cried! Then I went to the office and did some major repair work. I basically started a new practice 3 years ago with Jim’s unwavering devotion and guidance.It didn’t happen overnight, in fact the 2 months after our first meeting was the shakiest my practice had ever been or felt. Think earthquake! I realized, with Jim’s help, that fundamentally my office was a wreck. With no solid foundation, the smallest quiver would topple me! The first 2 months were so transitional that I didn’t even have enough money to buy Christmas presents. I had no idea I was that close to financial ruin. The biller was trying desperately to get me up to speed, we were learning new EMR, and I had hired staff. Well, January came and talk about Christmas!!! Since that month we have continued to change and grow! I even moved my office. (At Jim’s suggestion). The first year tripled my income, in the middle of the 2nd year I moved my office and kept it level. My children love that. Thank you Jim for your patience and understanding that we all aren’t born business people. Oh yeah, I just deposited over $12,000 this week alone. I cant wait to see what the taxes look like next year!! … .. No I’m not joking! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!.” This year I am projecting double my previous year. Its been getting better every year … Oh yeah I work a lot less."

  • “I pondered hiring Jim Bowen for two years prior to taking the plunge. It was a big leap of faith at the time. n hindsight, why did I wait so long? He saved me more than the cost of a year of consulting in just the first six weeks of his program. I have a much better practice today with Jim’s help than I could have imagined prior to working with him.Jim gave me a snapshot of my business (both good and bad) and a strategic plan for future growth and financial freedom. I look back and wonder why it took so long to hire him. Not only have I made a good business decision, I have made a good friend as well. Thanks Jim!”

  • “I have heard Jim speak several times over the years, yet I clung to what I knew: running my practice as a sole proprietor. Finally I realized that I could be wrong, and that maybe he just might be right. He got us on track to change, including a CPA who did things in MY best interests, not the IRS’s. As for the IRS, refund checks came pouring in from 2007, 2008, and 2009. Even after skipping my 4th quarter 2010 estimated tax payment, I received a large refund for 2010. In all, I received back over $37,000 in money that I overpaid to the IRS for the past 4 years. Unfortunately, I don’t even want to think about how much money I threw away the prior 20 years. Better late than never to accept good advise!”

  • “I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the thoughtfulness and consideration you have shown my family and me. You have always given me a vast amount of areas in my professional life to examine. I appreciate the straight direct solutions that you give and continue to give. I am looking forward to your next seminar. I know I will come away with my eyes opened and gain specific, practical ways to make more and keep more of what I earn.”

  • “This is something we have wanted to express for quite some time. From the first conversation we had a few years ago to the present, you have given us excellent advice, guidance and encouragement. When we first met, we had been dealing with an insurance company audit that caused serious stress to our lives and practice. After meeting with you at our office, your insight in tax structure and recommendations for the proper legal counsel and CPA helped transform our lives and business from fear and uncertainty to prosperity and purpose. Thank you for your continued service – we appreciate all you have helped us with, especially moving forward to a new life with a clear vision.”

  • “When I met Jim I was an associate doctor in a satellite office. I thought I was “The Man,” until he started talking. I quickly realized that I might have been a good chiropractor in the clinical sense, but as far as in the business sense, I was a tadpole in a big mucky pond and didn’t know what I was doing. One of my strengths is knowing I don’t know everything. I’ve had coaches and mentors in every aspect of my life, yet I didn’t have a business coach until Jim. He took me from hoping things worked out to having a battle plan with goals, strategy and peace of mind. If I remember correctly the first thing Jim ever said to me was, “you’re lucky you even get bread and water” as he referred to the earning potential in which I was practicing. There is something about Jim that is so honest it hurts and hurts just enough to make you change and grow and succeed. We soon latched on to his recommendations and implemented his plan. Within the first several months of knowing Jim, I bought the practice and have since transformed the look, feel, and operation of my office into a strong, stable corporation with a promising future. We are so happy with everything we have seen through our transformation; we even started wearing the “WWJD” bracelets (What Would Jim Do?).  Thank You Jim!

  • “I recently decided to go through the last decade of tax submissions that had been stored out in the garage and organize and categorize everything. My husband and I have known for some time Jim has saved us thousands of dollars over the last four years but to be reminded what we had been paying to the IRS before Jim came into our professional life was truly shocking and remarkable! We have saved between $25-$30,000 a year utilizing Jim’s restructuring advise. I am always the first to tell new doc’s about Jim Bowen for I have no doubt we would be retired by now if we had met him 35 years ago. I highly recommend you speak with Jim and I am always available to rave about him if you choose to call me. We have continued to use Jim’s services as our business consultant because he not only dispenses valuable tax advise but also has insight into what other offices around the country are doing to serve our patients in the best way possible.”

  • “The bottom line is this: After implementing Jim’s recommendations, I received an IRS refund check for over $22,000. I had been overpaying my taxes for years assuming my CPA knew best. At least I was able to recoup some of the losses. Jim pointed out some crucial corporate tax advantages I was missing out on that my experienced CPA wasn’t aware of. This was back in 2006 and I have reaped the benefits of proper accounting and his guidance ever since. Jim also suggested that I rework my office relationship with my massage therapists. The end result: my practice assessed value increased by $100,000 and the overall patient flow in the office greatly improved. He is now helping me navigate through the process of bringing in a new practice partner. I would not want to do it without his help.”

  • “James Bowen has been a fabulous addition to my practice team! I say this because he provides a group of services that is unique to my practice, was grossly missing and is unique to Chiropractic. THANK YOU James! I am certain that James’ services are not provided by any other consultant in our profession. We recouped our fees for his first year consulting just by re-submitting of our previous two years tax returns. I hate to say anything negative about anybody, but he showed holes in my accountant’s knowledge that I was paying a premium for, and suffering greatly from. Luckily, I was able to recoup from many of them. Once again THANK YOU James!! One of the things that I did not expect was to have James come into our practice and look at how we ran things from a business and practice perspective and help us see things that needed to be changed. I realize now that it is great to get a perspective from a non-chiropractor who is intimate with the Chiropractic profession. I don’t believe in coincidences so the 20% growth that my practice volume has had in the last 5 months definitely has something to do with James Bowen’s efforts. Now my practice has a great business and tax plan and my practice is growing, thanks in no small part to your help … THANK YOU James!!!”

  • “My biggest complaint about Jim Bowen is that I met him 20 years late. The amount of money I could have saved by improved tax and business strategies would have easily paid for my house. In the first day his advice saved me more than five time the cost of his fees. His ongoing council continues to secure and optimize our practice.”

  • “As a professional, you can sometimes get bogged down in the day to day operations of your practice and forget the structural aspect of your business. All of us at one time or another have had our CPA hand us a bill for our taxes, and we have stood there wondering what we were doing working so hard, just to have it all taken away. Without proper direction to make all of that hard work come back to you, what good is it? It is benevolent to help people but it is also just as benevolent to provide a great life for yourself and your family in the process. That is what Jim Bowen has done for me and he can do for anyone who will listen. He has helped me to think and to rethink properly and set proper entities in motion so that the hard work I enjoy is also done smartly. If I had met him years ago, I would have avoided many costly mistakes – very costly mistakes. The affairs in my office run more smoothly and as a result, I am not only more profitable, but I have more peace of mind knowing that my entities are set up correctly. Do not hesitate. The “proper planning” he has to offer along with his experience and other great suggestions that he has to offer will truly help you to “promote proper performance.”

  • Three years after hiring Jim, my practice continues to grow and be more profitable." Chris Osterlitz, DC Eugene, Oregon

  • “I think that one of the most important things that Jim is teaching me is to run my Corp as a Corp and not as a sole proprietor. We are finding that there are many savings when you work your Corporation properly.”   Dr. Carr, DC Seattle, WA

  • “I am impressed with your knowledge, your intuitive skills and your ability to put it all together to help docs in the field.”

  • “My office suffered an accounting and bookkeeping disaster in 2005. As a result, we paid an ungodly amount of taxes. In 2006, I consulted with Jim Bowen to change the financial direction of the practice. Jim recommended a new accountant and patiently educated me on how to organize my practice and my bookkeeping to minimize taxes. After filing an amended return for 2005, with the proper bookkeeping and a new accountant, we received a refund of $30,000! Need I say any more? I highly recommend Jim’s services to any small business.”

  • “My husband and I became Jim Bowen’s clients in the spring of 2009. Prior to joining Jim, we had actively and happily participated in David Singer’s programs for 6 years. We knew how to get new patients, how to keep them, and how to manage staff. What we couldn’t figure out was how to take our practice to the next level. We were doing well but we kept hitting a growth “ceiling”. Jim came into our practice, spent the entire day with us, and to put it simply, helped us “see the light”. Jim is like no other consultant we’ve ever met. He’s very easy to connect with. He’s caring, personable and objective. His expertise is beyond compare. im helped us get an $11,000.00 tax refund from the IRS within the first 3 months! Our collections have increased by $120,000.00 in 7 months!Our marketing calendar is planned for the next 5 months. Jim helps keep us focused and true to our goals. If you want to make a rapid change with your practice, don’t try to reinvent the wheel, HIRE JIM! You’ll be so very thankful.”

  • “I attended your seminar last night at the WSCA headquarters. I was the Norwegian. I called my wife during the two hour drive home. I told her that your brief seminar was the best one I had ever been to. Frankly she was quite frustrated by the end of our conversation. I relayed that you had provided answers as to why several of our friends had little or no tax worries; they always had these nice write offs, and they were doing these creative tax strategies. I had always told her that we had a great tax accountant (and I knew he was because he set up our chiropractic business as a PLLC) and these clever ways to reduce taxes didn’t apply to us. (Do you remember that I thought perhaps that although my business was a PLLC, I was pretty sure that we filed a Schedule “C”? BINGO.) I have survived for sixteen years in chiropractic and never thrived. I learned how to be a chiropractor but I have never been interested on how to be a good businessman. Money has never been a big motivator for me. I am forever the optimist- it is perpetually “going to get better”, we will “get there” someday. I feel like I have been standing in water that has raised above my mouth, but not above my nostrils. FINALLY you provided some concrete ideas on how we can “pull the plug” and let the water start to drain away. Perhaps with your help and attitude adjustment, I may even make it to dry land!"

  • “Dear Jim, Your services helped me restructure my corporation status, pay myself a salary, and set up my books for the best tax savings ever! Instead of paying out to the government I get to keep more. And that makes me happy. Every year I would have to write the big check that my accountant told me I owed.  With all the restructuring, I no longer do that. This has given me a lot of peace of mind.”

  • I’m currently wrapping up my first year of consulting with Bowen Consulting Group. I have to say in retrospect it was well worth every penny. In fact, business has been doing so well as a result of the consulting that the fee would be a no brainer at this point.  I noticed the consulting fees were essentially reimbursed almost immediately by the strategies Jim helped to set up. I could not have anticipated how far the office and everything else in my life has changed since that time. I was challenged to move out of my comfort in business and personal life and as a result have hit all of my career goals to this point. Our office, business and life are completely transformed in a major and positive way. We've added multiple staff, doubled and now on pace to triple collections. Thanks for everything Jim and Kim! Dr Chris Z. Portland, Oregon

  • "Jim Bowen has been assisting my clients in the strategies and execution of their financial planning for over two years. My clients have reported glowing reviews of Jim’s work and his deep concern for their financial well-being. Glowing reviews are wonderful, but the true success of his work is in how much money he saves my clients each year. All of my clients have reported substantial savings and a marked decrease in their financial liability to the IRS at the end of the year. He also councils them on numerous issues from negotiating leases to buying their next home. Jim is a stanch supporter of “Chiropractic” and understands the unique challenges chiropractors face. This alone has a value hard to put a price on. His approach is direct and to the point and most importantly without judgement. He just wants to see good Chiropractors do well and have successful practices they can be proud of. I fully endorse Jim’s work and I would recommend him to any Chiropractor who is serious about his or her business and wants to create a legacy for the future.”

  • “Three years ago I began using the services of Jim Bowen. Not only did he save me a lot of money immediately, but he also helped me plan for the future. He has kept me focused on my business and personal financial life. He has returned my calls and has made himself available when I needed to speak with him. I feel as he has been better than any management company – as it is not what you earn, but what you keep. I would highly refer anyone to Mr. Bowen, as if I had known about Mr. Bowen I probably would have saved over 1/2 million dollars over the past ten years in practice.”

  • “We have been running a practice for 23 years and in that time, have seen many things. There have been scams that we have narrowly escaped. Given that, we are always leery of franchise building coaches and investments gurus. Though we had heard good things about Jim Bowen, we were still reluctant to meet with him. We were, and have continued to be, delightfully surprised. With his guidance, we have finally been able to get clinic cash flow completely under control. He has always told us the way that things truly are. This man is a financial genius. After 23 years of practice we have been referred to many accountants who were said to be the best in their field. Unfortunately, we would still receive surprises come tax season. Despite the exorbitant hourly fees that most accountants charge, we received little help and still had financial difficulties. Mr. Bowen charges a standard annual fee. For this you can speak to him as frequently as needed and he will quickly and completely solve the problems that arise. In closing, we recommend Mr. Bowen to any chiropractic business owner. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. You will find yourself in very capable hands and dealing with much less financial stress. A gift we all desire and deserve.”

  • “We just had these two speak [James Bowen and Robert Zielke] and it was quite an eye-opener. They are both attorneys. Robert Zielke sheds light on Compliance Audits (warning: this is rather scary, but necessary) and Jim Bowen speaks on how to save money on taxes in a very informative and entertaining way. Wish I would have heard … and listened to him 27 years ago. Jim is from Whitefish Montana and Robert is from Seattle and his Law firm is a Platinum Member of the WSCA. They are offering to travel around to a few places within our state for no charge and put on Free 2 hour/ 2 CE seminars for sharing this info with our docs. They make their money when doctors hire them for their services yet the only pressure applied is that which you might place on yourself, after hearing this information. It’s a win/win and they only ask docs to make a donation to our WCT.Give it some consideration and if you have any questions, I’m always available.”

  • "Jim, Just a heart felt thank you for information. Although I was unable to become a client,I went to your seminar last June and it has changed my whole business and financial picture. My debt load was killing me. Much of it was the yearly 10k plus loan in order to pay my the remainder of my taxes. I could never get out from this burden. I implemented many of the “big picture” ideas in June of 2007 and cut my tax burden by roughly 8,000 K. I am traveling to Washington D.C. in a couple weeks and told my vice president (wife) to bring our company note book to record minutes from our meeting there! An idea that you suggested at your seminar. Thanks again for your invaluable information.”

  • “Dr. Gardner and I have been with Jim Bowen for approximately 1-1/2 years, and LI must say he have helped us tremendously. Jim is always available when I have questions, and he never makes me feel my questions are silly. He truly cares about making our practice as successful as possible, but does not judge if we choose not to implement something. I wish that we would have known about Jim when we started our practice 14 years ago. Thanks for all your expertise.”

  • “I have been meaning to send you a HUGE thank you for giving Ladd the “kick in the butt” he sooooo needed! It takes a lot of stress off of me and gives me hope for our financial future knowing you are involved! I know their is still SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much to be concerned about, but I will be forever grateful for steering him in the right path! Thank you thank you thank you for keeping on him and following up with him! You are a God-send and answer to my prayers and for that I will forever be grateful!”

  • The cost of hiring Jim to consult with us and teach us how to make our practice run as an actual business has been tremendously valuable.  It's like the gift that keeps on giving year after year.  We have easily made 10 times back the initial fee when you consider how much we have saved over the past 3 years alone.  Jim is always available and returns our calls quickly.  He cares about us as individuals as well.  I would have no reservations in hiring Jim Bowen to help you with your business.  He is awesome!

  • “I signed a contract with Jim Bowen when I began my practice after being an associate doctor on the advice of several chiropractors in the Billings area.  Because this is my first year in business I can’t really tell you how much I’ve saved, etc.  However, I do feel like I am saving because I have someone in my corner who is helping me to set up the business aspect of practice in a way that is profitable for me and using their experience to prevent costly mistakes. It has been great to call Jim when I have a question and feel as though I’ve gotten a valid response.  Jim also sat down with my wife and I and spent a couple of hours getting to know us and really tried to personalize our business strategies. The personal attention is second to none, and it is very easy to get a hold of Jim outside of business hours.”

  • “I have been working with Jim Bowen this past year. He came highly recommended by some very successful, highly respected colleagues of mine.At first, I didn’t think I could afford to, but now I realize I couldn’t afford not to.  I consulted with Jim because my colleagues told me that if Jim didn’t think he could save me $10,000 the first year he wouldn’t even accept me as a client. Jim’s expertise, guidance, and genuine concern for his clients is phenomenal.  My only regret is that I didn’t meet him sooner.  I urge you to consult with Jim and his team to see what they can do for you.  If you care about your business the way I do mine, you will hire Jim Bowen to be your Chief Financial Officer.  He will take all the time you need to get you on track.  It’s hard to say enough about Jim – no matter how much I will gush over him, he will over-deliver. When I sit down to write this letter, I’m amazed at how far we’ve come this year.  I don’t like to think of where I’d be without him. The bottom line is he will save you lots of money and stress by doing what he does, by helping your business to function as a business should.”

  • “Working with Jim Bowen has not only saved me money, it has given me confidence in my business aspect of my practice.He looks at your practice from top to bottom, inside and out and teaches you how to maximize its potential.  He works with all types of DC’s and therefore can give great advice on all aspects of practice.  I am confident about my business future based on Jim’s advice. Thanks Jim.”

  • “Dear Jim, Some time ago you asked for an endorsement of your services from John and myself, and while there was much to say, about our “experience” with you, we were honestly still waiting for results – perhaps because we had signed on after our taxes had already been filed and we had to wait a whole year to see if it was really worth while. Some of your recommendations we already knew needed to be done, but seeing it put in writing really gave us a push. We had to work through some serious growing pains as individuals, as a couple and as a practice. It was no picnic! However, last month we completed two monumental tasks that we would not have been able to accomplish so soon had we not made the changes you recommended. To coin a phrase “the results are in”. Restructuring our tax status, and working with the guidelines set out by yourself and Mr. Zielke, and with Mark Terdle in our accounting corner, John and I were able to pay off his student loans 10 years sooner than scheduled, and finish remodeling our clinic (which will enable us to really grow our practice). Please consider the following as our endorsement of fact with our heartfelt thanks! My husband measures remarkable results in the health of patients who follow his chiropractic treatment plans, and as bookkeeper for our clinic I can clearly measure financial improvements that justify the effectiveness of Jim Bowen’ counsel. We started working with Jim in 2007 and in just over a year of implementing the changes he advised we were able to: Pay off John’s student loan 10 years ahead of schedule, remodel our clinic, save $30,000 in taxes, and increase our NET worth by $95,000. Results can be measured – results count. Thanks Jim!”

  • “Jim Bowen has been assisting my clients in the strategies and execution of their financial planning for over two years.  My clients have reported glowing reviews of Jim’s work and his deep concern for their financial well-being.  As a result of my implementing these recommendations and the follow-up, I have saved more than $11,000 thus far.”

  • “Hi Amy, Just wanted to let you know that Andrea (my wife) and I met with Jim last Saturday. This guy is beyond phenomenal. I have never in my life even imagined anyone could do for our tax problems what Jim can do. After a 4 hour session with him in our office our heads were spinning. Looks like we will be saving three times or more in taxes than what it cost to hire him, and that’s just for the last part of this year! Next year we will save so much money that it makes me giddy to even think about it. And this is only what he is doing for us with our tax situation. The other input and suggestions he made were priceless. I can’t thank you enough for turning us on to him. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

  • “I’ve been working with Jim for one year and I am very pleased with his expertise, responsiveness and common sense approach to business and finances. Jim has helped me understand the basics of operating a business – adhering to corporate governance guidelines, setting up accounting procedures, including choosing appropriate software, selecting outside vendors such as payroll and accounting services and establishing salary and distribution thresholds. Jim is very willing to comment on my accounting practices and to make recommendations for tweaking those practices throughout the year, recognizing that businesses are dynamic and that periodic adjustments are necessary to respond to changing business environments. I know I can rely on Jim for timely, appropriate and insightful support.”

  • “My husband and I run a small chiropractic office. Initially we started out as sole proprietors. When we met Jim Bowen and he suggested incorporating our business, he explained all of the pros and cons so that we could make an educated and comfortable decision. Since incorporating our business, Jim’s financial and accounting recommendations have saved us money (especially in the area of self-employment tax) and have helped us to better prepare for retirement. Mr. Bowen has always been available to provide answers to questions and to offer professional advice that has consistently been proven to be a positive influence on our business financially and motivationally. We have benefited from and sincerely value Jim’s extensive experience and knowledge of business practices and tax laws. He has also been very helpful in assisting with our personal and business goal setting. Jim has always made us feel as though he genuinely cares for us as individuals, not just one of his clients. We would recommend Mr. Bowen’s services to all businesses, small or large, of any variety.”

  • “Dear Jim, I should have written this quite a while ago, but THANK YOU for all the valuable tax and strategic planning advice you have given me since becoming your client. Tax-wise you helped me save thousands and more importantly, regain a sense of control over my financial portfolio. I am happier man for not over-subsidizing our government’s follies. The Strategic Planning – or shall I say LIFE planning – was an unexpected bonus I received with your consulting. I would have been pleased to part with some sound tax advice. Instead you gave me this and helped me develop the clarity to chart a course for my future that I may not have seen on my own. Thanks again for the positive impact you’ve made on my life and best wishes for a happy holiday season."

  • “Dear Colleague, Initially I was very skeptical of any consultant because I didn’t think they could improve my business, much less understand it. But out of frustration with previous accounting advice and the desire to move the business in a different direction, I contacted James Bowen. He was recommended from a friend of mine, Tom Necela. I called Jim on Monday and he was at my office on Friday. He spent the weekend with me and started going through my business. Right away he pointed out things I can do to streamline and improve my business image. He also went through my tax returns, business structure, marketing plans, patient processing, and billing operations. Then he started making suggestions for improved revenue generation and more importantly, take home income. He then provided me with a customized seventeen page report on ways to improve the practice. I am so excited for net, take-home income next year. I can already see a significant increase through 2009. I wanted to tell you how appreciative I am that I have used James Bowen as a financial, and accounting consultant. I am very pleased and very impressed with how thorough and how speedy the individualized information was furnished. James is very, very good. Please contact me with any questions, I’ll highly recommend him.”

  • “Jim inspired me to fix up my very successful office so it looked as good as it worked. Jim gave me some great savings on my taxes and allowed me to be the entrepreneur I wanted to be. Jim’s first look at my corporate structure will save me far more this year alone than his fees. I recommend Jim as a ‘no-brainer’ to decrease your taxes and increase profits. Thanks, Jim."

  • “My wife, Patrice and I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Bowen in the autumn of 2004 through the referral of a close friend. Since that time he has changed our lives for the better significantly. He has helped us to structure our business is such a manner that the tax savings alone have added tens of thousands of dollars to our bottom line. It is difficult to list all of the areas in our business and that have benefited as a result of our association with Jim. I shudder to think of all the wasted money over the 21 years of practice prior to meeting Jim. He has been an absolute blessing to know. He is the poster child of “never promising more than he can deliver and ALWAYS delivering more (significantly more) than he promises. Our tendency has always been to question the advice provided regarding business and tax issues. However, with Jim the advice has always been sound and of good judgment. No gimmicks or slick and slippery plans. The advice he has provided and continues to provide is terrific. However, the telephone calls and emails I receive from individuals I’ve referred to Jim say more than I ever could. To a person, the calls and emails are all communications of thanks for the referral.”

  • “Jim is a wizard.  He has an uncanny ability to sort through the myriad of concerns, practice parameters, financial data and old habits to come up with a practice plan that is both particularly insightful and motivating. He did this for us about 2 1/2 months ago and we are growing and seeing the a clear path to retirement. I am excited about Chiropractic and teaching patients to be healthy in a new and more comprehensive manner. Patients are feeling this caring and sending in their friends and family.  A great win-win situation. Jim is more than a chiropractic consultant, more than a tax attorney and more than an accountant and even more than all three.  We have found an understanding, knowledgeable friend to call on with questions about current practice and financial advice. After being in practice for 30 years I thought I knew a lot. Well, I was surprised when I found that my understanding of my own profession was a small slice of the whole and that Jim Bowen had a wider perspective. I highly recommend his consulting and the allied professionals that he has collected to assist in correcting our financial foibles and directing our planning to help more people with Chiropractic.”

  • “As a newer doc, I really appreciated Jim’s input in how to improve my practice. He is great at helping doctors become more knowledgeable regarding various tax implications and corporate structures. He really wants the best for his clients and has helped me operate like a corporation and become more efficient. This has led to increased satisfaction and a more profitable clinic.”

  • “Two years ago, I saw Jim Bowen at a seminar about taxes and saving money. I love my profession, but I’m not much of a businessman, and was still operating as a sole proprietor, hemorrhaging cash for no good reason other than ignorance. His initial “hook” was to get my business by saving me multiples of his fee in taxes, but his advice has since gone so much further than that. My initial contact with Jim Bowen was, in a word, depressing. He showed me how bad my office looked, tore apart my business and practice methods, and showed me giant “blind spots” in my life I hadn’t seen before. I was a professional, but I wasn’t acting like a business. Jim Bowen unwittingly has become the best practice coach I have ever had in the eight years I’ve been in business. One of my favorite quotes I took away from our meeting was, “What you are and what you choose to do is the same thing.” Since meeting with, and in part thanks to, Jim Bowen, I have seen remarkable changes in my practice and my life. I follow most of his advice when it comes to business, and he’s never steered me wrong. He’s what I call “My Business Advisor”. Even now, I still call with questions about changes that are going on in the business world, and Jim Bowen always takes my call. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about Jim Bowen at my office, (206) 343-3325."

  • “Our life has changed since we met you due in large part because of your help. Leah and I were talking and we were able to go back to our meeting with you when a lot started to change. It is easy to look at the books and say that you helped us save a lot of money. Anyone that works with you can easily say the same.

  • “I want to tell any doctor business owner who pays taxes –– working with Jim Bowen is a NO BRAINER. Jim found over 200,000.00 in additional write-offs for my two companies.That is awesome, and I feel very well prepared for what ever tax changes may be coming down the pike. Thanks Jim."

  • “Yesterday I heard back from my new accountant and he delivered the news that I was going to pay $50,000 less in taxes this year. That makes you my new hero because without your constructive input and expert advise (not to mention consistently pressing me to get the important things done) it never would have happened. The best news is how I feel about my practice now. It’s making money again, without making any legal or ethical compromises.”

  • “I really appreciate Jim’s expertise in the business side of chiropractic. He has been a great friend and can quickly re-energize your practice economics. would encourage every DC to become a client and benefit from his proven and outstanding business guidance.”

  • “Aside from saving us thousands of dollars in taxes right off the bat and thousands more the following year, Jim has helped change my thinking from being a doctor in a practice to an owner of a business.  He has given me valuable strategies in marketing, taxes and business and has demonstrated his vast experience with chiropractic time and again.  Jim’s resources are deep and he is always there to answer questions.  Jim’s report of findings on me was an eye opener – one of the most comprehensive and valuable tools I have."

  • “Dear Jim, Thanks so much for being the person you said you would be. Of course the news of the refund is fantastic, but I appreciate your insight, recognizing the problems and working with people who are the best in their field.”

  • “We just arrived home and I wanted to thank you for your time and the HOPE you have given me. I wish we had met you YEARS ago, however, better late than never.  I know you will get us on the right track and instill some discipline in us which will allow us to refocus and feel the relief of the burden we are now carrying. Thank you so very much!!!”

  • “If you are a sole proprietor. If you are going to build a building. If you are thinking of expanding your practice to a new facility. You REALLY need to contact Jim Bowen immediately for consulting! He is extremely knowledgeable with the chiropractic profession, corporate structure, taxation, hippa compliance, and business procedure. Jim is well read, caring, and enjoys helping chiropractors. I have been in practice for over 27 years and have had a large and successful practice. Although, I have worked with great coaches to build high volume and increase collection; I have never worked with someone like Jim Bowen. I wish I would have met him sooner. He looks at our practice to increase profit, decrease tax liability, and run the practice as a business. Although, Jim gave us invaluable advice on the finish work of our new 4,000 sq. foot building. Jim guided us through the process of changing from a sole-proprietor to a corporation. Jim is always available by phone and e-mail. He is a remarkable man with good ideas. If the consulting fee is holding you back …. figure out how to arrange payment. After only five months of his consulting we have gained his fees back four fold.The exciting part is we will be able to continue reaping the benefits for years to come.” Thanks Jim!!!

  • "I have been working with Jim for about a year now.  He has taken my practice from being in debt to now having the problem of where to invest all the money the practice is generating.  He is always there to motivate me (sometimes even gently!). He is always looking at the “big” picture and sees the forest where I tend to focus on the trees.  Easily the best practice management partner I could have.”

  • “I started in solo practice 5 years ago with a prior history of success and a game plan to continue the upward trend. The years have not been kind and left their scars of experience. The unpaid bills, backlog of taxes only continued to pile up with no sign of relief. The downturn of the economy was an easy excuse to blame for all my failed efforts, but that still did not keep the lights on. I consulted billing firms, found the best CPA to resurrect me from the grave I was in, but all they seem to be able to do was read me my last rites. My brother told me of a guy that seemed to know his stuff and begged me to listen to him. On borrowed money, I attended his meeting and found a fountain of ideas and had so many doors open to me, in that first sitting, that in less than a month, I saw myself in the black, the office structured properly, and even my tax issues became a thing of the past. The money spent on his behalf was the best investment I have ever made in myself. I can’t say enough of how valuable Jim has been to me personally, and my business.   Five stars from me!!!!!!”

  • “I have used Jim Bowen for the past year and I can honestly tell you my husband and I feel that hiring Jim was the best money we ever spent! Jim is professional and will give you practical, no nonsense and useful advice. He is extremely knowledgeable and has exceptional intellect in all aspects of finances and taxes and if there is something he doesn’t know he will find out for you or refer you to a qualified and knowledgeable expert who can. Jim has always been readily available and prompt to respond to all our emails and questions butthe very best thing about Jim is that I guarantee he will save you money!”

  • “Mr. Bowen’s improvement list is concise, tactically sound, and frames the scope of work to be accomplished in the practice. As a professional note – in 34 years of consulting I have never seen a list of recommendations containing 70+ needed improvements.” Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.”

  • “I have been a chiropractor for 15 years and have tried 5 different practice management companies. All of them taught me valuable lessons, but none of them were able to budge my practice numbers or my bottom line. Jim Bowen not only got to the heart of my practice dysfunction, he taught me how to run a business. After implementing Jim’s Report of Findings, my practice has grown 30% in just 2 months! Thanks again for the positive impact you’ve made on my life and best wishes for a happy holiday season.”

  • “Thank you for helping me with my practice Jim, the perspective that I gained was invaluable You helped me move my practice forward in ways that I would not have come up with on my own, and my practice is thriving as a result of your help.  We saved more than double your fee in taxes our first year working with you. The plan that you developed for me gave me principles and strategies that I will continue to use year after year, and pay dividends for the rest of my career. Thank you for your help.”

  • The business and tax strategies that were implement saved the clinic in the first year more than three times what was paid for Jim’s coaching program! We also made numerous changes to the look and function of the clinic based on Jim’s recommendations that definitely grew the business and added a lot of positive energy for both the patients and the staff! I now count Jim as more than just a business/practice consultant but a “truly” caring and giving person who has become a good friend! If you want to make and keep more money in your practice, Jim Bowen’s coaching program will make it happen!”

  • “First of all, I was caught up in the real estate market. The crash caused a state of financial crisis. I’m normally an extremely positive person. I was getting to the point I couldn’t see my way out. Jim came along and I will never forget his words; “you will get out of this, you are not realizing your assets. Of course the first thing was getting me a $30,000 refund on my last two years of taxes. You helped me move my practice forward in ways that I would not have come up with on my own, and secondly, he suggested selling my second satellite practice. He helped me find a lending institute to finance the purchasing doctor. At the time getting a loan was almost impossible. “He also assessed my practice. He showed me many ways to optimize and gave me a report of findings with 90 items to maximize my practice potential. All of them were very detailed and effective. I had previously paid $14,000 a year for a practice management group. Jim’s information gave a different insight to how the business aspect of my practice should run. The information he gives is vital to business success and he costs much less than the practice management companies. My wife of 19 years says it’s nice to have her positive husband back. Our wonderful life is back. Jim, I cannot thank you enough for sharing your caring wisdom.”

  • “As I look back over the past 32 years as a Chiropractor, I realize that I have done a few things right, and probably a lot of things wrong. Getting Jim Bowen as my Tax Advisor was definitely one of the things I did right. I have been a client of Jim’s for 6 years. During that time I have not only seen my practice double, but I have been able to keep more of the taxable income. I am sure I could pay for his fees 10 times over with my tax savings. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually gets back to you when you call. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually has a sense of humor. Unlike most attorneys, Jim actually cares about his clients. Unlike most attorneys, I feel that Jim cares more about my money than the money he makes from me. Well you get the idea … Jim is always there when I need him, and ready to give me the right advice. Jim gives great tax, business, and professional advice, all rolled up in one.”

  • “I consider Mr. Bowen an asset to my business and a mentor to me personally. He has such a wealth of knowledge and an incredible amount of experience. He will expose your weaknesses and give you ideas on how to improve, grow and achieve your dreams! I highly recommend Mr. Bowen and look forward to continuing our business relationship for years to come. Thank you for everything.”

  • “Three years ago I made a decision to hire James Bowen to consult for my practice. I was in a very transitional time in my life and my practice was umm … floundering? The potential was there but I was not running it like a business. Jim came in and started laughing!! Anyone who’s been to his seminar has seen my awesomely ugly scale that I left at the front door. Well, after he stopped laughing, he started talking and talking and talking until I thought my head was going to pop off. How can anyone get that much energy just off of caffeine? I went home and cried! Then I went to the office and did some major repair work. I basically started a new practice 3 years ago with Jim’s unwavering devotion and guidance.It didn’t happen overnight, in fact the 2 months after our first meeting was the shakiest my practice had ever been or felt. Think earthquake! I realized, with Jim’s help, that fundamentally my office was a wreck. With no solid foundation, the smallest quiver would topple me! The first 2 months were so transitional that I didn’t even have enough money to buy Christmas presents. I had no idea I was that close to financial ruin. The biller was trying desperately to get me up to speed, we were learning new EMR, and I had hired staff. Well, January came and talk about Christmas!!! Since that month we have continued to change and grow! I even moved my office. (At Jim’s suggestion). The first year tripled my income, in the middle of the 2nd year I moved my office and kept it level. My children love that. Thank you Jim for your patience and understanding that we all aren’t born business people. Oh yeah, I just deposited over $12,000 this week alone. I cant wait to see what the taxes look like next year!! … .. No I’m not joking! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!.” This year I am projecting double my previous year. Its been getting better every year … Oh yeah I work a lot less."

  • “I pondered hiring Jim Bowen for two years prior to taking the plunge. It was a big leap of faith at the time. n hindsight, why did I wait so long? He saved me more than the cost of a year of consulting in just the first six weeks of his program. I have a much better practice today with Jim’s help than I could have imagined prior to working with him.Jim gave me a snapshot of my business (both good and bad) and a strategic plan for future growth and financial freedom. I look back and wonder why it took so long to hire him. Not only have I made a good business decision, I have made a good friend as well. Thanks Jim!”

  • “I have heard Jim speak several times over the years, yet I clung to what I knew: running my practice as a sole proprietor. Finally I realized that I could be wrong, and that maybe he just might be right. He got us on track to change, including a CPA who did things in MY best interests, not the IRS’s. As for the IRS, refund checks came pouring in from 2007, 2008, and 2009. Even after skipping my 4th quarter 2010 estimated tax payment, I received a large refund for 2010. In all, I received back over $37,000 in money that I overpaid to the IRS for the past 4 years. Unfortunately, I don’t even want to think about how much money I threw away the prior 20 years. Better late than never to accept good advise!”

  • “I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of the thoughtfulness and consideration you have shown my family and me. You have always given me a vast amount of areas in my professional life to examine. I appreciate the straight direct solutions that you give and continue to give. I am looking forward to your next seminar. I know I will come away with my eyes opened and gain specific, practical ways to make more and keep more of what I earn.”

  • “This is something we have wanted to express for quite some time. From the first conversation we had a few years ago to the present, you have given us excellent advice, guidance and encouragement. When we first met, we had been dealing with an insurance company audit that caused serious stress to our lives and practice. After meeting with you at our office, your insight in tax structure and recommendations for the proper legal counsel and CPA helped transform our lives and business from fear and uncertainty to prosperity and purpose. Thank you for your continued service – we appreciate all you have helped us with, especially moving forward to a new life with a clear vision.”

  • “When I met Jim I was an associate doctor in a satellite office. I thought I was “The Man,” until he started talking. I quickly realized that I might have been a good chiropractor in the clinical sense, but as far as in the business sense, I was a tadpole in a big mucky pond and didn’t know what I was doing. One of my strengths is knowing I don’t know everything. I’ve had coaches and mentors in every aspect of my life, yet I didn’t have a business coach until Jim. He took me from hoping things worked out to having a battle plan with goals, strategy and peace of mind. If I remember correctly the first thing Jim ever said to me was, “you’re lucky you even get bread and water” as he referred to the earning potential in which I was practicing. There is something about Jim that is so honest it hurts and hurts just enough to make you change and grow and succeed. We soon latched on to his recommendations and implemented his plan. Within the first several months of knowing Jim, I bought the practice and have since transformed the look, feel, and operation of my office into a strong, stable corporation with a promising future. We are so happy with everything we have seen through our transformation; we even started wearing the “WWJD” bracelets (What Would Jim Do?).  Thank You Jim!

  • “I recently decided to go through the last decade of tax submissions that had been stored out in the garage and organize and categorize everything. My husband and I have known for some time Jim has saved us thousands of dollars over the last four years but to be reminded what we had been paying to the IRS before Jim came into our professional life was truly shocking and remarkable! We have saved between $25-$30,000 a year utilizing Jim’s restructuring advise. I am always the first to tell new doc’s about Jim Bowen for I have no doubt we would be retired by now if we had met him 35 years ago. I highly recommend you speak with Jim and I am always available to rave about him if you choose to call me. We have continued to use Jim’s services as our business consultant because he not only dispenses valuable tax advise but also has insight into what other offices around the country are doing to serve our patients in the best way possible.”

  • “The bottom line is this: After implementing Jim’s recommendations, I received an IRS refund check for over $22,000. I had been overpaying my taxes for years assuming my CPA knew best. At least I was able to recoup some of the losses. Jim pointed out some crucial corporate tax advantages I was missing out on that my experienced CPA wasn’t aware of. This was back in 2006 and I have reaped the benefits of proper accounting and his guidance ever since. Jim also suggested that I rework my office relationship with my massage therapists. The end result: my practice assessed value increased by $100,000 and the overall patient flow in the office greatly improved. He is now helping me navigate through the process of bringing in a new practice partner. I would not want to do it without his help.”

  • “James Bowen has been a fabulous addition to my practice team! I say this because he provides a group of services that is unique to my practice, was grossly missing and is unique to Chiropractic. THANK YOU James! I am certain that James’ services are not provided by any other consultant in our profession. We recouped our fees for his first year consulting just by re-submitting of our previous two years tax returns. I hate to say anything negative about anybody, but he showed holes in my accountant’s knowledge that I was paying a premium for, and suffering greatly from. Luckily, I was able to recoup from many of them. Once again THANK YOU James!! One of the things that I did not expect was to have James come into our practice and look at how we ran things from a business and practice perspective and help us see things that needed to be changed. I realize now that it is great to get a perspective from a non-chiropractor who is intimate with the Chiropractic profession. I don’t believe in coincidences so the 20% growth that my practice volume has had in the last 5 months definitely has something to do with James Bowen’s efforts. Now my practice has a great business and tax plan and my practice is growing, thanks in no small part to your help … THANK YOU James!!!”

  • “My biggest complaint about Jim Bowen is that I met him 20 years late. The amount of money I could have saved by improved tax and business strategies would have easily paid for my house. In the first day his advice saved me more than five time the cost of his fees. His ongoing council continues to secure and optimize our practice.”

  • “As a professional, you can sometimes get bogged down in the day to day operations of your practice and forget the structural aspect of your business. All of us at one time or another have had our CPA hand us a bill for our taxes, and we have stood there wondering what we were doing working so hard, just to have it all taken away. Without proper direction to make all of that hard work come back to you, what good is it? It is benevolent to help people but it is also just as benevolent to provide a great life for yourself and your family in the process. That is what Jim Bowen has done for me and he can do for anyone who will listen. He has helped me to think and to rethink properly and set proper entities in motion so that the hard work I enjoy is also done smartly. If I had met him years ago, I would have avoided many costly mistakes – very costly mistakes. The affairs in my office run more smoothly and as a result, I am not only more profitable, but I have more peace of mind knowing that my entities are set up correctly. Do not hesitate. The “proper planning” he has to offer along with his experience and other great suggestions that he has to offer will truly help you to “promote proper performance.”
