When I finally got the nerve to launch my health advocacy practice in 2017, I had a huge problem- I had no entrepreneurial experience and no roadmap. I had a desire to help others navigate the healthcare system the way I had done for my late father and for many of my patients. I knew that if it was difficult for me (a physician) and my sister (a nurse administrator) it must be 1000x more difficult for those without a background in health care.
All of my life I had followed a plan. The next step had always been mapped out. College, MCAT, medical school, residency, board certification…
That’s not how entrepreneurship works. Sure, there are books- I read a bunch of them. There are podcasts- I became obsessed with them. There are even conferences and of course, the tried and true practice of “brain picking”.
Ultimately, I had to take ACTION. I had to try things- some worked, some didn’t. I had to figure things out as I moved forward. I made a lot of mistakes and my mindset was a huge barrier. Then one day, it all began to click!
Now I have a successful health advocacy and consulting business that earns multiple 6 figures and I am transforming lives and our broken healthcare system one client at a time.
Navigating Health Advocacy: Ready, Set, Launch!™ is a group coaching program for physicians interested in learning how to launch a successful health advocacy practice. I created the blueprint so that you don’t have to struggle the way I did. If you are a physician who wants to explore health advocacy as a side gig or career transition but have no idea where to start, let’s chat!
“Thank you so much for a truly amazing coaching experience. I was very “iffy” about whether I was actually going to start this business, but after the first module and discussion, I knew it was doable, and I haven’t looked back. Thank you for giving me the skills and the confidence to make this happen!’
