What’s good everyone!! When I started Docs Outside the Box, I wanted to expose listeners to doctors thriving in non-traditional career paths. Just listening to episodes, might not be enough. I am learning that mindset plays a big part in our ability to take action, and also have positive energy in our lives. The fixed mindset keeps us from removing ourselves from toxic work environments, starting a podcast, or even taking a chance on a side-hustle we might be passionate about. I want to start introducing topics around mindset and habit – building into the regular schedule of this show. Nate Klemp, PhD, is an expert in this field and jumps on this show to talk about his NY Times Best-Selling book, Start Here: Master the Lifelong Habit of Wellbeing. This book is about learning that the same way we train our body for fitness, is the same way you can train your brain for wellness! The book is based on the Life Cross Training System that is currently being used by healthcare systems to help physicians battle burnout and obtain peak performance.  Things you’ll learn on this episode: Dangers of the “grind it out” mentality in health care The benefits of meditation What is gratitude How to manage attention and tension   Follow Nate Klemp: LinkedIn LIFE XT on LinkedIn Twitter   Don’t forget to join the community of DOTB Nation at: docsotbnation.com Check out our great sponsors: Physician CEO Set For Life Insurance

What’s good everyone!! Dr. Mark Shapiro, Host of Explore The Space podcast, jumps on the hot-seat to talk about where the hell physicians fit in the current landscape of healthcare. Are we still in the center, or are we stuck riding the bench while the MBAs make all the decisions? Who knows?! We get real, raw, and even bring up uncomfortable topics not generally talked about. If you’re looking for a show where physicians, academics, journalists are talking about healthcare – then Explore The Space is the show for you. I’m a fan of Dr. Mark’s show and recommend that you put it on your playlist.    Resources: Dr. Mona Hanna-Atisha Extreme Ownership Crucial Conversations Redefining Perfection

What’s good everyone! Welcome to a new series called “The Come-Up.” In previous episodes, I’ve mentioned that it can difficult to identify with a successful person’s journey, especially if they’re on Step 1000 (i.e. Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bezos). If you got a chance to listen or even talk to someone who is on Step 5 would that make a difference in your life? I think so – I would find it really inspiring to see successful people as their “figuring it out.” That’s what this series is all about. Connecting you docs who are “figuring out” their life as a doc outside the box right in front of our eyes. These episodes are meant to be raw, emotional, cool AF and uplifting. The best part is – you can be apart of this conversation. I’m featuring listeners who will allow us to follow them through their journey, and be open to coaching. Our first guest is Dr. Nana Korsah, a former Nephrologist who has recovered from burnout, and now is a locum Hospitalist. She has a side gig as a life and financial coach for physicians who want to both pay off debt and live their life to the fullest.     If you’re interested in coming on “The Come-Up,” click here: https://www.drniidarko.com/contact/   Follow Dr. Korsah: Wesbite: www.mdworklifebalance.com Email: nkorsah@hotmail.com   Resources: The Total Money Makeover Susie Orman

What’s good everyone! Today you’re going to hear from Dr. Peter Valenzuela – the creative mind behind the comic strip Doc Related.” Doc Related is a comic strip with a satirical take on healthcare through the eyes of healthcare professionals. Think of Dilbert and the television show, The Office but for healthcare. You’ve probably seen his comic strips on numerous physician Facebook groups.   Not only is he a creative, he’s also made the transition into hospital administration and serves as a Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of a large physician group in California. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of corporate medicine, but Peter gives us a direct look into the life of a physician who serves as a CMO. Honestly, he has changed my perspective with this interview. For the residents and young attendings out there, this is an episode you don’t want to miss if you’re interested in what life is life in the Corporate Suite (C-suite).   Resources: ProWriting Aid   Follow Dr. Valenzuela: Twitter Facebook LinkedIn

What’s good everyone! What is the use of knowing that “everything is negotiable” if you lack both the skills and confidence?

What’s good everyone, Much like auto body shops, did you know that hospitals present different prices to individuals compared to insurance companies? You may think, “Yeah of course, hospitals present a more inflated bill to insurance companies!” Well, there’s evidence to show this is not the case. Price gouging and lack of transparency has been a major problem in the healthcare industry for decades. Dr. Marty Makary, author of his new book The Price We Pay, drops in to talk about this and the research he is currently doing to combat this issue. Dr. Makary is a surgeon, New York Times best-selling author, and health care expert. He is also a professor of Health Policy & Management at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. His areas of interest include the health care costs, overtreatment, the opioid epidemic, patient safety and the movement to make healthcare more transparent.   Resources Mentioned: Restoring Medicine Giving birth costs a lot.

What’s good everyone, I am very happy as a physician. But I’m not going to lie, there are things that people who are not doctors get to do that make me pretty jealous. One of them is the ability to have a career pivot. So many of my college friends have changed careers and sometimes I wonder “Could that be me?” My next guest is definitely not afraid to both ask that question and take action on it. Dr. Lynn Morski from the Quit Happens podcast joins me on this show to discuss how quitting strategically can be the pathway to a more fulfilled life. That’s right she’s a “Quitting Evangelist,” and she’s very honest about her pathway that has taken her through the tech industry, medicine, and also law.   Things you’ll learn in this episode: Why many avoid quitting How to make your resume/CV look good with multiple experiences in quitting How she helps doctors get over the stigma of quitting How she became a quitting evangelist She takes us through the steps of quitting strategically as physicians How she answers #imnotjustadoc   Resources: Oura Ring Book: Quitting by Design Lear more about Dr. Morski: https://quittingbydesign.com/

On this episode, I’m chopping it up with Dr. Cedric Dark, the Founder and Executive Editor of Policy Prescriptions. Think of Policy Prescriptions as a cliff notes version of health policy research so that lawmakers can make bills based off actual evidence-based studies. Now at this for well over 10 years, Dr. Dark got his start while interning in Washington, D.C. and learning how much policymakers relied on politics and ideology.

What’s good! Things get real for me on this episode. I’m in the hotseat as Dr. Renee interviews the “Doc Outside the Box.” Starting late last year, I doubled down on clinical work.

What’s good! One of the biggest challenges I face with being an entrepreneur is learning how to not be too focused on the minute details of my businesses.

What’s good everyone! Dr. Renee is joining me on this episode. I decided to shake things up a bit and discuss something controversial. Damon “Dame” Dash is an American entrepreneur, record executive, film producer and is best known for co-founding Roc-A-Fella records. For a significant time, he served as Jay-Z’s manager and business partner. Several years ago, Dame Dash came on the popular radio talk show The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 to discuss a new movie. To anyone who isn’t familiar with the talk show, it’s not your typical morning show and if you’re a guest, you definitely can’t prepare for the questions you will face on the show. Let’s just say it turned into a heated talk about employment versus entrepreneurship and other things you should listen to in your home and not at work. On this episode, Dr. Renee and I break down this conversation for you from a doctor’s perspective. There are mad nuggets that Dame drops about employment that we think you all can learn from and we go through each one by one. His thoughts are controversial, but this is Docs Outside the Box - and that’s what we do!

What’s good everyone! My next guest is Dr. Nikki Ramskill – the personality behind the blog “The Female Money Doctor.” There aren’t as many physicians in the United Kingdom blogging about personal finance as in America, but her claim to fame is being the “first ever doctor in the UK to be blogging about money.” The blog has become popular in the UK and focuses on the money stresses that her patients suffer from.
