I worked for 12 years (two years as a doctor) before I began saving more than social security for my retirement.
I worked for 32 years before I achieved financial freedom.
During that time, I worked 21 different jobs in 9 states.
I was a baby sitter, a clerical assistant, a fitness instructor, a waitress, and a model. I picked fruit and vegetables as a farm worker. I sold Amway door-to-door, had Tupperware parties, and sold Rexall on the internet when AOL was still new, and modems were very noisy.
All during that time I was writing, mentoring, speaking and becoming a doctor who cared.
Why am I sharing this?
Because this site exists so that you can learn from my mistakes.
It exists so that you avoid the dead ends I drove myself down before I found myself as a successful physician and mentor.
Why am I telling you this?
Because to enjoy any profession for over 30 years and still be able to count on two hands the number of days you wished you were somewhere else is not about luck and it is not about superior intelligence. It is about taking responsibility for our choices and disciplining ourselves.
It is about taking ownership of what is within our control: how strategically and how efficiently we work.
Two insights for those who are considering medicine as a profession.
The “Golden Age of Medicine” is only over when you decide being a doctor is nothing more than a job and that you are practicing a trade rather than a profession. That is why I stopped supporting the American Medical Association years ago.
The letters after your name, like “M.D.” are called “credentials” because they crown you with credibility. No matter what you choose to do with your life, credibility makes the work of success easier.
