Podcast Episode 63 – Burntout to Bad**s: How I Quit Full-Time Medicine to Start a Six-Figure Coaching Practice – Dr. Errin Weisman
Episode 63 – My guest on the podcast today is Dr. Errin Weisman. Dr. Weisman faced serious burnout after a very short time in her clinical career, but she pulled herself up and started a coaching business on the side. That business has become her primary business, making six figures a year, and yet she still practices part-time medicine! She’s a full-time wife and mom, living on a farm in rural Indiana, and she has proven herself to be a major thought leader in the physician self-development space. There’s a lot to learn from her about entrepreneurship, leadership, business savvy, and learning from your mistakes. Whether you’re looking for tips to grow your leadership skills, how to step away from full-time medicine, work-life balance, entrepreneurship, we cover it all in this interview. There’s definitely something here for everyone.
Register for Residency-Proof Your Marriage!
I’m excited to tell you about a new online course I’m launching called “Residency-Proof Your Marriage.” I’ve seen way too many couples get divorced or see their relationships go sour during their medical career. Medical training is an inherently divisive time, so you have to work to combat that!
This online video course will coach you through setting expectations, communicating effectively, getting on the same page with finances, and keeping your relationship thriving during a difficult time. Whether you’re in medical school, residency, or out in clinical practice, Residency-Proof Your Marriage is going to help you build a thriving medical marriage.
I’m looking for 15 couples to sign up for the beta version of the course. You’ll get full access to the course at the lowest price it’ll ever be offered. We’ll also ask you for feedback periodically throughout the course to help us make the course even better.
The price is $69 for students and trainees, and only $99 for practicing physicians. This is a very inexpensive investment in your marriage. A weekend marriage retreat will cost upwards of $1000 between food, registration, lodging, and vacation time.
Registration closes on June 20th, so sign up today!
For this course, you’ll get all the great content in the course for a fraction of the price and you complete it on your own time as your schedule allows. Go to www.thescopeofpractice.com/marriagecourse to sign up today. We’re limiting the signups initially to 15 couples, so sign up today. Again, just go to www.thescopeofpractice.com/marriagecourse to sign up today.
