Jon Ketcham

Dr. Ketcham is the author of the "iContractor" book series, a Motivational Speaker and Dream re-Kindler to Earth-bound Travelers of Light.

Dr. Ketcham was in private practice as a chiropractor for over 17 1/2 years & contributed contributed a quarterly philosophy column to his hometown newspaper, The Meadville Tribune (circ. 12,000), in the Active for Life supplement, from 2009 until 2013.

Dr. Ketcham is also a motivational speaker who delivers a powerful message of taking responsibility for your results in life and changing those results by changing yourself from the inside-out!

"In order for things to change and improve, you don't need a 'change of venue.' What you need is a 'change within you.'" (iContractor 1, p. 42)

However, when it comes right down to it, Dr. Ketcham is the first to acknowledge, "I am nobody; no better, no worse than anybody else. I am just doing the best I can with the resources I find before me; just like everybody else." In fact, rather than puffing out his chest and touting his credentials, he prefers the simple title of "jon."

Much like Job from the Bible, jon has known more than his fair share of adversity and misfortune. Having gone broke 3X within 4 years, nearly dying from a life-threatening illness and skirting perilously close to homelessness, he immersed himself into a decade-long study of personal development and success that included reading over 100 classic works, repeatedly listening to more than two dozen audio programs and watching over a dozen videos. He was then able to turn his life around and build the "waiting-list" chiropractic practice of his dreams, only to have his entire livelihood mostly evaporate following sweeping insurance company reductions in Pennsylvania in 2012 that took most of the fun and ALL of the viability out of private practice. By documenting his journey into hell & back, he leaves a trail of light for others still lost in the abyss of darkness

His latest book, The "Zero's Journey" - A Modern-day Survival Guide for Weathering Accidental Enlightenment comes out at the end of this year.

The First Step to Managing Change

The nature of life is change. And, the more we strive to keep things the same, the greater the changes seem to be. Nothing lasts forever. We only need to visit any cemetery to get a fresh reminder of the transient nature of our existence. Economies and industries rise and fall. Remember Kodak film? How about vinyl records, cassette tapes and VCRs? It is a given that, at some point in time, in each one of our lives, we will all experience the bitter taste of failure as well as the savory sweetness of success; the vulnerability of weakness as… Read more.
