dr. ketcham offers hope to the hopeless & helps the broken re-kindle their dreams.
He was in private practice as a chiropractor for 20 years & 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. His articles were very well received and are also available by following Doc's Blog.
However, when it comes right down to it, he is the first to acknowledge, “I am NOT an expert! In fact, it is highly unlikely that I will ever use the term "expert" again in reference to myself. The more I've learned about everything, the less, I've come to realize, I know about anything. Paraphrasing Bertrand Russell, there are far too many morons alive today, blindly sure of themselves and their ideas, while the truly wise are riddled with doubts." He prefers to simply be addressed as "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 completely 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 to illuminate the way out for others still lost in the abyss of darkness.
jon is also the author of the iContractor book series, including:
- The "Zero's Journey" - A Modern-day Survival Guide to Weathering Accidental Enlightenment
- The Golden Role - Just Be Nice!
- Ask Me Who I Was - audacious brain farts on life, death and immortality

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.
