Have you ever struggled with the idea of being burned out? Maybe you’re not sure even what it is.

After all, you are working hard and going through the day doing your thing. It’s just part of the job, right?

Maybe you’re sitting here, listening to this podcast and reading these words & you’re feeling like you’re starting to feel disconnected at work and disconnected at home.

As I’ve been meeting with different physicians across the country, I’ve been shocked at the number of physicians that say that they wouldn’t go back into medicine.

I believe that’s why we need to make a paradigm shift.

The goal of this podcast my friends is to help you slash your debt, slash your taxes, and live a liberated lifestyle. However, to live a liberated lifestyle, we need to feel free and feel great about ourselves.

That’s why today we are going to tackle and empower you with 3 tools to combat physician burnout.
