S4, Episode 24: Top 5 Podcasts of 2017- #4 The Complete Guide to Taking The Road Less Traveled [Physician Fireside Chat] with Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley of Physicians Helping Physicians

June 8, 2018

This June we are focusing our attention on the Top 5 Podcasts that we had in 2017. They are a great mix of topics from real estate, taxes, and the ever popular side hustle.

Here are the notes and resources from this episode:

Welcome back to our monthly fireside chat with a physician to get to know their journey, their joys, and their struggles with finances and outside of finances.

My friends, in this show, I try and dig deep to find interesting people. As a matter of fact, our next guest was featured on the August 27th, 2016 episode of Dr. Nii Darko's podcast, Doc's Outside The Box.

I was immediately drawn to this episode, as it was titled, "This doctor had it all, but didn't want it."

She was a top performer in medical school, and then got to the point of struggling with whether or not she wanted to be in clinical medicine. Fresh out of residency, she decided she not to.

In this interview today, we’re going to talk about her journey and successful transition, because now she is helping other physicians do this as well.

Please help me welcome Dr. Michelle Mudge-Riley from Physicians Helping Physicians. Welcome Michelle!   

In this podcast you will:

  • Discover what led Dr. Mudge-Riley away from clinical medicine into helping other physicians who also want to escape clinical medicine.
  • Be inspired on how taking the road less traveled can lead to the greatest successes.
  • Gain knowledge on how Physicians Helping Physicians, Dr. Mudge-Riley's organization, develops customizable plans for each of their clients.
  • Learn from Dr. Mudge-Riley's mistakes and acquire the right tools and protocol to protect yourself if you decide to also move away from clinical medicine.

June 1, 2018

This June we are focusing our attention on the Top 5 Podcasts that we had in 2017. They are a great mix of topics from real estate, taxes, and the ever popular side hustle. 

Here are the notes and resources from this episode:

My friends, in this show, I try and dig deep to find interesting people. As a matter of fact, LinkedIn is a wonderful tool and this physician reached out to me on LinkedIn.

He also was kind enough to mention the podcast in a post that I will link in the show notes.

Our next guest is the author of that post. He graduated from the Mayo Clinic in 1999 ready to conquer the world. Working as a family physician in Southern California, he truly enjoyed medicine but wanted something else in life. In 2003, an event occurred that really spurned his life and drastically changed his direction that I’m sure we’ll get into.

Mike Woo-Ming MD MPH

As a doctor working 60, 70, 80 hours of a week that just wasn’t happening. So he made the decision to go full-bore into starting his own online business and has sold and started others since. Today, he has an online site- BootstrapMD- which was created to help work with other like-minded doctors who are ready to be their own boss and take control of their physician life.

Please help me welcome Mike Woo-Ming MD from Bootstrap MD. Welcome, Mike!      

In this podcast you will:

  • Discover how his family had an influence on how he handles money.
  • Receive Mike's BIGGEST financial mistake, so you don't make the same mistake.
  • Learn what drove him to become a doctor and what other choices he had to choose from. (HINT: You may be able to relate to his situation).
