    Reflecting on Mindfulness and Being our Own Worst Critics

    Do you ever feel like you're never doing enough, or maybe that you're doing so much but that inner voice inside is still saying "do more"?
    It's important to know that you're not alone with these thoughts.
    In this episode, Alex and I dive deep together and self reflect on this very issue and share how each of us works on this common problem that pharmacists face on a regular basis.

    Validation

    In this episode of The Happy PharmD podcast, we talk about validation. It feels good to be validated -- whether you're told, "Good job!" from your boss or a patient or a fellow co-worker -- but as an entrepreneur, it's more difficult to get this kind of validation so we share validation stories that we've had in our entrepreneurial journeys.

Fun to listen to with great content.

This is a great podcast! It is well thought out and well executed. Alex is funny and educational and really has a good pulse on what is going on in pharmacy. This is exactly the information I’ve been looking for as I plan to pivot my career in pharmacy! I’ve been binge-listening to the episodes and have enjoyed all of them so far.

Incredibly insightful!

I am 14 years out of school, and am on job #4 ~ I’m constantly reinventing myself; growth is so important to being happy. Alex captures that idea, and presents the information concisely and with enthusiasm!

Alex is a host who genuinely cares

I was hooked after one episode, and just like I did with Breaking Bad on Netflix, I binged this whole first season of the Happy PharmD. Alex does a great job delivering insightful viewpoints on the profession of pharmacy and opens up avenues in our profession that need to be discussed if we are to move our profession forward. I'll be sharing with all of my friends in conversation. As we all know, pharmacy talk ALWAYS comes up (or dominates the conversation). Looking forward to the next season!
