As physicians, we’re no strangers to studying. We’ve all spent countless hours with our heads buried in books, trying to absorb every last bit of knowledge in what little time we had. We’re also no strangers to learning from others. In other words, we know how to model successful people.

Whether it be our teachers in medical school, our attendings, or perhaps the colleagues we respect, we’ve all spent time developing our skills under educated leaders. We’ve looked to these people for help, advice, and guidance. In some ways, we even tried to emulate their knowledge and success.

But when it comes to reaching our ideal lives, how many of us even think to use that same strategy?

Over the last few years, I’ve spent a ton of time trying to figure out how to be successful –not only in my career, but life in general. For me, that feeling of success comes from setting goals, achieving them, then setting new goals.

Did you catch the key phrase there? I’ve spent a ton of time trying to figure out how to do well in these areas. I’ve read stacks of books and listened to hours of podcasts. Don’t get me wrong, all this learning has been hugely beneficial. But eventually, I realized that it can only take me so far.

In fact, I discovered that the best way to truly accelerate how fast I achieve my goals is the same way I worked to become a physician: not only by studying, but by eventually modeling other people who are already successful.

What Is Modeling?

At its most basic level, modeling someone means using them as an example and imitating what they do.

When I realized I wanted to become an obstetric anesthesiologist, I didn’t just want to have the title. I wanted to be good at it.

So, I studied the experts at placing epidurals. I learned how they position the patient, how they palpate the back, how they hold the needle…you get the idea. I leveraged their experience, learned from their mistakes, and accelerated my path to proficiency in this field.

The same happened for me in the world of investing. I met physicians who created significant passive income through real estate, listened to their advice, and followed their path.

I asked so many questions because modeling and leveraging someone else’s expertise is the fastest and quickest way to succeed in anything:

“What did you invest in?”
“What resources did you use?”
“What challenges did you face?”
“What mistakes have you made?” 

Of course, not every method they've used to become successful is right for me. But even if it doesn’t, I can incorporate the parts that do.

I know there are people who want to create multiple streams of income, but just haven’t figured out how to start. And more than that – they don’t know who to model.

Leverage & Growth Summit For Physicians

So I decided that I should create a way for people to hear others’ stories and package them into one powerful resource. I hope that learning from others' experiences would start their journeys to creating ideal lives through multiple streams of income. That is the mission of this site.

I am extremely excited to announce that my team and I have put together just that: a way to share experiences, advice, resources, and connections… a way for us to model successful people who have our same degrees and background.

We call it the Leverage and Growth Summit For Physicians.

We chose this name because we wanted people to learn how to leverage their medical degrees and the experience of other successful physicians to grow their income streams, to strengthen their personal development, and to expand beyond just being a doctor.

I fully believe that if you’re solely relying on medicine to give you security and fulfillment in life, you’re putting yourself in a bad situation. Growing these diverse streams of income isn’t just a side hustle – it’s security and peace of mind.

To that end, I’ve gathered 50 of my physician friends and mentors to share how they’ve been able to create these other income streams. Combined, they’ve achieved success in a variety of fields, from real estate investing to consulting to venture capital to being active in media to creating products and on and on…

They’ll share the stories of how they got started, what motivates them, what resources they find most useful, and what challenges they face.

In these challenging times, I truly believe that this will be a tremendous resource for any and all physicians. My hope is that it will inspire & motivate you, help give examples of people to model, and show you that your goals are attainable.

And even more than that, my other hope is that you’ll find a community of like-minded people who are willing to help each other out.

Oh and we decided to make it a FREE event, but also give people an opportunity to have lifetime access to the whole library of content.

Check it out here and let me know what you think. Let's do this!
