But things were not always great.
Can I share my story with you?
I grew up in Chicago, Illinois, the youngest of my father’s 6 kids. At a young age, I realized my calling of being a doctor. I was always fascinated by the inner workings of the mind and body. I began to study the human body. I performed well academically in high school, medical school and residency. After completing residency, I started my own independent Physiatry practice and soon built a seven-figure practice.
I travelled the world visiting many countries I always dreamed of visiting including Brazil for Carnival, Dubai to bring in the New Year and Sydney Australia watching the fireworks at the Sydney Opera House. I was able to pay off the mortgage on my parents’ home. After my father suffered his second of three strokes before he eventually passed away, I was able to fly him to my Rehabilitation Hospital in Arizona to receive care as opposed to allowing the hospital to send him to a nursing home.
Despite all of this I had an embarrassing secret. During my first year of college my family was evicted from the home I spent all of my life up to that point. We were now homeless. I vividly remember the Sheriff coming to the house knocking on the door on what otherwise seemed like a regular day. When I answered the door, he immediately dropped the bomb on me and let us know we needed to be out of the house within hours. My heart dropped, I dropped to the floor and cried like a baby. I was numb and in a stupor for months. I had lost my home and my way. I no longer had a sense of certainty or any roots.
This could happen to anyone. Because of this…NOW I am dedicated to teaching new attending’s how to build lucrative independent medical practices so that they have financial independence, security, and the ability to plan and save for retirement. I want to make sure no one else has to experience that pain and embarrassment. I want you to achieve financial freedom so that you control your destiny and have ultimate career satisfaction.
