176: Pivoting to Entrepreneurship with Dr. Jimmy Turner

Wealthy Mom MD with Bonnie Koo | Pivoting to Entrepreneurship with Dr. Jimmy TurnerMy guest this week has had an incredible journey in business and entrepreneurship. If you’re a physician, while you’re listening today, I want you to ask yourself, “How could this apply to me?” because today’s episode is really about deciding what you want to do, what would make you fulfilled, and showing you that it’s possible to do something else with your life and not feel guilty about it.

Dr. Jimmy Turner is the Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Attend: a financial platform built by physicians, for physicians. Jimmy is also a practicing academic anesthesiologist, author of The Physician Philosopher’s Guide to Personal Finance, and host of the Money Meets Medicine Podcast. He’s made many pivots in his career, and he’s here to challenge the idea that pivoting is somehow bad.

Tune in this week to challenge the idea that once you’re practicing medicine, you need to stay that way forever. We’re discussing transitioning into entrepreneurship, charging for your services, and Jimmy is discussing the realities of burning out both as a physician and an entrepreneur, and how he’s pivoted as necessary each time he’s hit the wall.
