#37. How To Start Before You’re Ready (Getting “Unstuck”)
People reach out all the time asking me to weigh in on whether they should change jobs, should they start an online business, or even wanting to know if they should invest or pay down debt. The truth is, most people feel that when making a major decision that there is always a right and a wrong decision. However, the true "wrong" choice is letting a decision keep you from taking action. The best way to get unstuck, I've found is through coaching. If you need help getting out of your own way, then the Alpha Coaching Experience will be opening soon.

#36. Working More Shifts is NOT the Answer to Financial Freedom
Why do you want financial independence so quickly? Many doctors think that by working extra shifts or by seeing more patients they will get to their financial freedom sooner. But working more does not mean working smart. We can’t place our happiness in a future that may never arrive, and to do that we need to slow down. If you're ready to learn about how you can find financial freedom, I'll be hosting a live (and sales pitch free) Financial Freedom Bootcamp on May 10th & 11th.

#35. What Legacy are we leaving for The Next Generation of Physicians?
Based on your current experience in the medical field, would you want your kids or future kids going into medicine? Just because we had to go through hardship in our career path doesn't mean the next generation has to. It's time we started thinking about the impact we're leaving for the future generations of medical practitioners. The key to leaving a positive impact for future generations is by empowering the doctors today to have the financial freedom they need to practice medicine however they want. If you're ready to learn about how you can find that financial freedom, I'll be hosting a free Financial Freedom Bootcamp on May 10th & 11th.

#34. The Physician Should Come First (Not the Patient)
As doctors the mantra, 'the patient comes first,' is a belief instilled in all of us to make sure the patient is given the best care. Unfortunately, this mentality keeps hospitals from taking care of another important group of people: physicians. I'm here to tell you that this way of thinking is backward and if we take care of doctors first, then everyone benefits.

#33. Being an Entrepreneur is the Secret Sauce to Physician Freedom
If you're a doctor who feels like a cog in the wheel, or just a number on a clipboard, then maybe you need to break out to practice medicine on your terms. Unfortunately, you may be saddled with debt or can't give up your salary and maintain your lifestyle. Not to worry. There is a way out of this trap. Today I'm here to tell you why every single physician can benefit from non-clinical income create the freedom they need to practice medicine however they want (if they want).

#32. Do You Feel Trapped, Stuck, or Burned Out in Medicine? Then Let’s Fix It.
Just because medicine has done things a certain way does not mean that this is the way it has to be. If you’re like me, and am tired of apologizing for pointing out the broken parts of our medical system, then I want to assure you that you’re not alone. I refuse to accept that medicine has to continue pushing doctors into burnout or even to suicide, and I want you to join me to find a new way of thinking to change the status quo.

#29. I Drive a F***ing Corolla with Dr. Lil Surprenant
I talk a lot on this show about becoming a coach, and try to provide as much advice as possible to get you in the right mindset and give you the proper tools to succeed. However, it can be just as helpful hearing about someone else's experience to help realize your dreams are possible. That's why I have a special guest on today's episode. Dr. Lil Surprenant is a fantastic coach from the Alpha Coaching Experience and is here to share her experience shifting from working as a full time hospitalist to working as a coach.

#28. Why Physician Entrepreneurs Work Less & Earn More
The more work you do, the more money you earn, right? That's how we're taught to think, and also why a lot of doctors work themselves into burn out. Flipping this script is also why physician entrepreneurs find freedom. The thing is, money and time are not intrinsically linked. Being productive doesn't always mean earning more money and there are so many ways to increase your income while working fewer hours. If you're ready to take control back with your time and your schedule, then it's time to figure out how to work smarter not harder.

#27. Getting Clear on Your “Why”
There is always one more task business owners can try and get done in a day, but this one task always becomes a never ending to-do list. The truth is, if you’re always focusing on the “What” of your business, you’ll never get caught up on that list. That’s why shifting your focus from your “What” to your “Why” can help you make time for the important things in your life, like family. Today, I share some of the struggles I’ve experienced with the Arrival Fallacy in my business, and always say “Hell Yes” to my family.

#26. Why doctors Benefit from Professional Coaching
Does this sound familiar to you? You finish your medical training thinking your burnout and overwhelm will disappear once you are an attending physician and have a salary. It rarely works out that way does it? When we hit burnout, many of us start asking what are our options to leave medicine. With so many possibilities, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start, or who to get advice from. By the end of this episode, you'll learn how business and life coaching can help busy physicians, and then you'll know you're next steps, too. If you are a physician looking to find work-life balance and freedom as a partner, parent, and physician; or you are looking to build financial freedom through a non-clinical physician side gig, make sure to check out the Alpha Coaching Experience at https://thephysicianphilosopher.com/alpha .

#25. 5 Keys to Financial Freedom through Physician Side Gigs
Financial freedom can be obtained by saving enough to retire, producing enough income to support your lifestyle, or a hybrid of both. Only 4 years out I’m financially free from medicine, and practice medicine now because I want to and not because I have to. For some people though, this financial independence may seem forever out of reach. We all want the autonomy to do what makes us happy in our lives, but for many doctors they may be tied to financial restrictions that take the joy out of their work. If you resonate with what I just said, then maybe it's time to create a non-clinical source of income, and I'm not talking about "jobby" (Job+Hobby). Today I break down my top 5 keys to help you create non-clinical income, and start earning your financial freedom, too. If you are interested in coaching on how to start your Online Physician Side Gig, the Alpha Coaching Experience is officially on sale from 2/13 until 2/22. Included is 12 weeks of both life coaching and business coaching.

#24. Quid Pro Quo & Disappointing Relationships
Quite often, we get mad at others for reasons that are out of their control. In our minds the problem is that they didn’t meet our expectations. However, the source of the frustration isn't the reality of things happening or not. It's actually that reality doesn't match up with our expectations. This can cause unhealthy relationships both at work and with your family. Today we are going to discuss how harmful conditional love sets you up for disappointment with your co-workers and family. Instead, I want you to choose to love unconditionally and appreciate the people in your life. Also, if you want to learn more about how to control your feelings in and outside of your job, I am hosting a webinar titled Physician Burnout: 3 Essential Concepts to Finding Freedom on 4 upcoming dates starting February 16.

#23. How to have a Healthy Money Mindset
Our past experiences with money may have determined what we think about money now but doesn't need to impact how we think about it later. As someone who is fascinated by the psychology of money, I can understand why many doctors I talk to have a scarcity mindset when it comes to money. However, I also know that this mindset negatively impacts income and causes people to continue working more and as they try to grow their income. If you feel like you can't earn any more money, I'm going to help you break out of this negative mindset. Let's talk about two of the most common limiting beliefs I see doctors have about making money and get you to think about the abundance of your value. Also, I am hosting a webinar titled Physician Burnout: 3 Essential Concepts to Finding Freedom on 4 upcoming dates starting February 16. Seats are limited to sign up now!

#22. 4 Reasons to Stop apologizing every time you say no
It’s Nice to know that Wilt Chamberlain and I have at least one thing in common: we both got over our need to please people. I used to feel responsible for other people's feelings. It's taken so long for me to realize being authentic to who I am means saying no, no matter how disappointed someone else is. That's why I want to share with you these 4 reasons you should stop being a people pleaser so that you can live your life. It's not possible for us to please everyone all the time, so why do we say yes to everything, even when deep down we don't want to?

#21. Choose Curiosity Over Shame
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your identity.” Our human brains are so interesting. So when it comes to our routines, it’s easy to fall back into them after wanting to enact change. You work on making intentional choices. You may even make a resolution. You try not to give into your urges but then… BAM! All that good work seems to go to waste. Here’s the thing, though… your efforts aren’t wasted at all. Choose to be curious about the decision to fall back rather than shame yourself. Choose to treat yourself with the same dignity and respect you would for someone else. Learn how not to beat yourself up. Here are a few pieces of information that could be a deal maker for creating sustainable change when it comes to habit formation.

#20. Building a Hell Yes Policy
When you say yes to one thing, you’re saying no to another. Are you making the right decision when choosing between the two? [emoji shrug goes here] Life as a doctor can constantly feel busy.

I unapologetically sympathize with you. That’s why the Hell Yes Policy means what it means for me to pass along to you. This concept has helped me get through some tough times.

#19. New Year, New You - Building/Breaking Habits
What if you make 2021 a year where you actually accomplish your goals and stick to a new you? That’d be nice, right? Turns out you really can but… queue drum roll... there is a systemic approach to doing it. When it comes to habit formation, I always like talking about the concepts of System 1 and System 2 from Amos Tversky and Daniel Khaneman. You can read more about this in Khaneman’s book, which details their work called Thinking, Fast and Slow. The fundamentals include assessment, interpretation, and intentionality. At least that’s how I talk about it in this show. Through personal experiences, I share how my habits have brought me to a place of unexamined opportunity. I’m not perfect but I was able to rewire my brain. I give you several practical tips for you to do the same. Sign up > > One of my greatest joys is helping you, coaching you, and supporting you.

#18. Faith, Beliefs, and Coaching
My faith was the reason for getting into coaching in the first place. But admitting my religious beliefs publicly usually does two things-- brings people closer or pushes them away. This episode is about having conversations with people who are different from us. It’s about removing the stigma, it’s about meeting people where they are, and it’s about loving our differences while we help each other be better people. Getting o’vr our differences in faith and belief helps us show up for others (and ourselves) in a way that doesn’t discriminate. When we remove the judgmental lenses we’re sometimes nurtured to have, we impact more, love fruitfully, and, at the end of the day, are better human beings. Are you currently facing your own mirror while meeting others where they are? Please let me know. I’d love to read your thoughts. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
