“Burn the Boats” - From Police Officer to Private Equity With Whitney Sewell [Limitless MD, Episode 33]


How do you know when it’s time to “burn the boat” and take the risk to start anew? It beckons. It is something that burns inside you, that nags and nudges you until you get sleepless nights and restless days trying to figure out what it is that’s begging for you to pay attention. It is your passion, buried deep by the daily grind, and sometimes, we feel like it may be too late. 

In this new episode of the Limitless MD, you’ll come to realize that when it comes to pursuing your passions and living your best life, you’re never too late or too early. When the time is right, when your thoughts are clear, you’ll know exactly what it is that you want to achieve. Then, when you muster the courage to pursue it no matter what, that’s when the universe aligns.

“Find that thing you’re passionate about, otherwise, how much more Whys is it gonna be for you?”

Whitney Sewell
