Chapter 1: Oh, Canada
Born and raised in a rural, small town on the Canadian prairie, Tim Dudley’s childhood was a unique blend of Tom Sawyer type adventure and devotion to succeeding in sports. Raised in a town where being the best was not just hoped for, but expected, (have you seen the movie Hoosiers?) can be both a blessing and a curse. Tim had many pivotal events growing up that defined the principles he lives by and teaches today. A few include: being “held back” in school, seeing the movie, “Rocky” for the first time then taking up boxing, and having a double knee surgery in high school when all that mattered was football.
Chapter 2: Defining Capable
After being cut from his college football team, flunking out of college, and getting dumped by his girlfriend, Tim made the decision to do the next “logical” thing…become a cowboy. Tim spent the next year and half traveling around western Canada and the U.S. learning to ride a bucking horse, eventually becoming the College National Champion bareback rider. What he learned from rodeo has become the foundation for his Narrow The Gap framework for success. He then served two years for his church in the inner city of Kansas City, Missouri. Tim overcame many obstacles by using his natural ability to relate to others, and his sweet break dancing skills.
Chapter 3: Build a Foundation
Tim attended University of Lethbridge, in Canada, and then Parker Chiropractic school in Dallas, Texas. He married Kara in 1996, graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1998, and relocated to Boise, Idaho. Tim established an extremely successful practice based on principles he learned during a very difficult first three years of business. Tim created a lucrative business based on his ability to communicate, be authentic, and commitment to refining this skills of his profession. For 17 years, Tim has grown his business, grossing over 500K yearly, maintained an incredible staff and done this with essentially no external marketing or gimmicks.
Before long, Tim had many opportunities to mentor and speak to others who wanted his secret formula for success.
