Scaling Your Everest: Radiation Oncologist Turned Real Estate Mogul With Dr. Larry Daugherty [Limitless MD, Episode 153]


If you’ve ever hiked up a long trail with a high incline, you’ve probably felt like this: You’re walking strongly but eventually your breath starts to get heavier, then your legs start to feel it. You think you’re on the right path but you’re slowing down, you’re actually not sure. Is this the right path?

You’re waiting for your next sign…Something to tell you how much longer. Should you turn around? You’re getting tired. Is it even worth it to keep going?

And finally, after a bunch of almost turning around moments, there it is, you eventually hit the peak of the trail.

Life is similar. Those tough moments often hold the keys to developing a solid mindset that could help you achieve everything you have ever dreamed of, financial freedom included.

That’s what Dr. Larry Daugherty is talking to us about today.

He is an adventuring radiation oncologist and father of 5 living in Alaska. Larry’s passion for adventure led him to explore passive income to find more freedom. 

He now works part-time in medicine, owns 200 doors, and has been building his brand, “The Freedom Physician,” where he coaches high-income professionals on how to scale their portfolios. He also co-founded Radiating Hope, the leading nonprofit in radiation oncology, which aims to improve access to cancer care in developing countries.

Larry has led climbing expeditions all over the globe, including trips to Mt Everest, Kilimanjaro, and Aconcagua.

Join us to discover insights and lessons that will ignite your transformation.

“My mindset went from ‘This is something that would be nice and that I’d really like to do and that I’m committed to’ to ‘This is something that I have to do, and I must do this, and I must do it quickly.’” – Dr. Larry Daugherty
