Healthcare Boss,

Do you feel like life has been nonstop for the last couple of weeks? During the last three weeks I have attended a Click Funnels conference, (barely) survived hurricane Ian, traveled over 5,000+ miles to Romania, returned home, and then left to the LevelUp Summit . . . and Quarter 4 started!

When you are six miles above the Atlantic with limited Wi-Fi, you have a lot of time to think . . .

Was quitting my job last year worth it? Am I achieving my goals? If I was to redo my resignation, what would I change?

Last October, I gave up a high-paying job as a CRNA to help other healthcare entrepreneurs grow their own businesses. I’m happy to report that I haven’t returned back to my previous gig and there is no return in sight for me!

I no longer need to live with high stress and 60-hour work weeks where I had to sleep in the “on-call dungeon.” I also don’t have to work 16-hour shifts on holiday weekends where I miss milestones with my family.

“On-Call Dungeon”

One thing medical professionals forget is our own personal freedom. (Seriously, sometimes I couldn’t pee for HOURS until my replacement clocked in.)

During this past year, I have had the ability to do whatever I want whenever I want. If my daughter wants to go to the beach, we go. If my son wants to stay longer at the park, we stay. If my wife wants to do a quick RV trip, we can stay all weekend long!

When was the last time you said YES to yourself? Just because you work in the healthcare industry doesn’t mean you deserve some personal freedom too!

If you are a nurse and have the entrepreneurial itch, it’s time to take the leap.

I’m not saying quit your job tonight with no plan. However, I’m sure it comes as no surprise that worker burnout is increasingly growing within the healthcare industry. Have you been personally affected by the long hours and overwhelming workload as a healthcare worker? 

Recently, I was interviewed by Authority Magazine about minimizing medical burnout. What can be done to eliminate the tiring issues within healthcare workplaces? A solution I propose is to transition away from the for-profit corporate healthcare systems and instead create work environments that value patient care and satisfy healthcare workers.

A career is more than making a sufficient income; it’s about doing work that is fulfilling and makes you happy. Are you currently satisfied with your healthcare career? If the answer is no, there are options for you to make a change.

Entering into the world of healthcare entrepreneurship provides an opportunity to do what you love, live your dreams, and achieve a successful and profitable career. Rather than just surviving day-to-day with overbearing work, it’s possible to make life fulfilling with a career that is satisfying for you. 

For this reason, healthcare entrepreneurship is sweeping the nation. As medical burnout continues to worsen, more and more healthcare professionals are moving toward launching their own private practice or start-up.

According to Forbes Magazine, nearly 50% of healthcare workers have plans to leave their job positions by the year of 2025. That means millions of healthcare professionals are beginning to make the change to have a more satisfying and fulfilling career.

I was once where you are: working 60+ hours a week, missing out on holidays and family events, and having to jump through hoops just to get a day off. However, once I started to work toward being a healthcare entrepreneur, I discovered there was a simpler way to do what I’m passionate about and not have to burn myself out in the process.

Believe it or not, the healthcare industry is changing. A clinician report identifies that the industry is shifting to focus more on a patient’s overall health and well-being rather than just treating illnesses and injuries. More and more healthcare professionals are realizing that the key to success is to maintain their patients’ health through methods of prevention and sustainability.

Traditionally, most healthcare practices and clinics worked to fix current illnesses and then sent their patients on their way. That meant that patients were only interested in healthcare services if they happened to be sick or injured in some way.

Now, as healthcare professionals are breaking away from their traditional positions and creating their own businesses—they can optimize their careers with services that bring in consistent patients who don’t need to be sick just to walk in the door.

The Benefits Of Being A Healthcare Entrepreneur

I’m sure by now you can understand why so many healthcare professionals are taking charge of their lives and starting their own healthcare businesses . . . or, at least, considering it.

You may still be asking yourself if there are any real benefits of entrepreneurship other than having the ability to quit your current draining job. I’m pleased to inform you that the answer is yes!

Entrepreneurship brings freedom, autonomy, fulfillment, control, and happiness to a healthcare career. 

Healthcare entrepreneurs have the ability to break away from the healthcare systems that sacrifice patient care quality and worker satisfaction. As a healthcare entrepreneur, you can have:

  • Freedom: choose your schedule with flexibility
  • Autonomy: govern your workplace with your values
  • Control: manage patient quality care and workplace standards on your terms
  • Fulfillment: accomplish what you desire in the workplace
  • Happiness: find joy in your work

A change in the healthcare industry is brewing as healthcare professionals take the leap toward entrepreneurship. 

How Can I Become A Healthcare Entrepreneur?

With all that was previously said, you may be wondering how you can begin taking the steps toward entrepreneurship. At a glance, it seems like a daunting task to own and operate your own healthcare business—but it’s actually more doable than you think.

The bright side is that you don’t have to make this change instantaneously! Thanks to the freedom of entrepreneurship, you can work at whichever pace works best for you. When I was first launching my clinic, I still worked as a CRNA until mine up completely up and running. 

You don’t have to quit your current job until you’re already prepared to bring in a profit!

No one expects you to know everything right off the bat and be an expert in starting your own healthcare business. I certainly don’t! 

So then how do you do it?

In my opinion, anyone can accomplish anything with the right education. The most crucial step for healthcare entrepreneurship is making sure you have the knowledge and skills that lead to success. Achieving this knowledge and gaining those skills can be accomplished through mentorship and robust education.

As a healthcare entrepreneur first starting out, there are tons of resources out there to help you learn and gain the confidence you need to be a great success as a healthcare entrepreneur! 

Did you know that I have three training programs that can give you just that? Whether you’re looking to start an IV therapy start-up, become a ketamine therapy provider, or launch a medspa business—we have courses available for you to grow your knowledge and be ready to take on entrepreneurship.

Medical burnout can be addressed and potentially resolved entirely by filling the healthcare industry with entrepreneurs. This is your chance to not only make a difference in patients’ lives but also in the work lives of healthcare professionals.

The path to healthcare entrepreneurship is not one you have to trek alone. Your entrepreneurial journey can begin today; all you have to do is make the decision to start!
