    150 - An honest convo about weight loss and stress for Docs

    150 - An honest convo about weight loss and stress for Docs

    So back in the days of medical school, I used to be able to brag about eating a BigMac and then be able to run a 5 minute mile on the treadmill. Well those days are long gone. I can’t run anywhere near that fast and I still got the fast food habit. To make matters worse, how easy is it to get something healthy while on night shift and its 3AM?!!
    I invited Dr. Siobahn Key to help us understand that weight is a common struggle for physicians and we often feel that we should have it figured it. Let’s get real - there are plenty of aspects of our job that make it easy to gain and hard to lose weight.
    Dr. Siobhan Key is both a Family Physician, and Obesity Medicine and  Weight Loss Coach for Physicians. She is the host of a weekly podcast Weight Solutions for Physicians. Her passion is helping people learn to stop emotional eating and feel confident in their ability to manage their weight for the rest of their life.

    146 - DOTB VS Day 3 - Learn How To Better Allocate Your Time & Money So You Can Start Living a Life Where You Call the Shots!

    Today is Day 3 of the summit and I’ve got a special interview for you. Did you know that there is a growing movement of individuals and couples retiring in their 40s and for some even earlier? This is called being Financially Independent & Retiring Early movement. It’s safe to say that joining the FIRE movement requires not just discipline but a huge change in mindset.
    My next guests are Christina and Amon Browning, who recently on their popular YouTube channel announced they retired in their early 40s. They called in all the way from Lisbon, Portugal, and we’re going to hear the nuts and bolts of mindset and lifestyle changes necessary to reach this feat. Some of the moves they made included saving over 70% of their income, making smart decisions with real estate, and having a “can-do” mentality.
    If you haven’t discovered their YouTube channel then you are missing out. They’re videos are amazing and educational. They just dropped their FIRE workbook, which is a step by step guide to getting to financial independence. ….cuz a brother is giving away free copies of this badboy. We’re using this and are on our way….

    145 - DOTB VS Day 2 - Work Smarter, Not Harder by Embracing Passive Streams of Income

    145 - DOTB VS Day 2 - Work Smarter, Not Harder by Embracing Passive Streams of Income

    We’re on to Day 2 of the Docs Outside the Box Virtual Summit. Yesterday, we heard from Dr. Carmen Brown on how leaving the US to practice overseas both revitalized her career and her mental well- being.
    Today we’re shifting to creating wealth for yourself but not through your job. A lot of people who have detached from their 9 to 5 refer back to the book called Rich Dad, Poor Dad as the catalyst. This book was written by Robert Kiyosaki in 1997 and told the story of his 2 dads – his real father (poor dad) and the father of his best friend (rich dad) – and the ways both men shaped his thoughts on money and investing 
    My next guest, Dr. Peter Kim has been doing the same for some time now. He’s he runs the famous blog Passive Income MD, and Curbside Real Estate, which is a concierge service for physicians looking to buy real estate. He’s here to help me parse through a recent interview that real estate mogul Grant Cardone did on VladTV, which is a popular YouTube channel focused on the news in Hip Hop. In this video interview, Grant talked about his childhood, how he started in real estate and also how he quickly multiplied his holdings. It’s a very polarizing interview, look below for the embedded video to watch.
