Is fear the real reason you haven’t made a career pivot?


Like many other physicians, I found the environment of the healthcare system had become so toxic that I wanted to leave.


Fortunately, there are excellent coaches out there who helped me with the how-to of finding a nonclinical alternative. And trust me, I entertained all options!


But I found my BIGGEST challenge, after wondering if I was even capable of making a pivot– and still earning a living– was justifying my desire to leave traditional practice because most people didn’t understand.


And especially in the early, most difficult stages, I desperately wanted acceptance and support.


From my family, my friends, my patients—and most of all—

                    from myself.

I certified as a Master Coach 4 years ago so I could assist doctors, and anyone else in transition, in achieving the mindset necessary to make a successful switch.


But I don’t just talk the talk. I also created a whole new career for myself, as a writer.


If you’re stuck, I’d like to help you find the craft that will light you up and make you excited to go to work every day–and then help you go for it. That could be by tweaking your role within medicine or by doing something entirely different.


See, I found it wasn’t enough for me to change my profession; I had to redefine myself to become the person I wanted to be. And I had to stop living up to other people’s expectations.
