Taking the Leap: From Doctor to Entrepreneur with Dr. Pranay Parikh [Limitless MD, Episode 78]


Doctors: if you’re ready for the next chapter of your life, this one’s for you… What if you could build your medical career around your life instead of building your life around your medical career? Limiting your shifts, starting a private practice, taking vacations without worrying about loss of income – all these things take one thing: money.

This week, join me and my guest, investor, serial entrepreneur, an all-star strategic consultant (and yes, ALSO a doctor), Dr. Pranay Parikh, to talk about taking the leap from doctor to entrepreneur. We’ll talk about letting go of perfectionism and learning to take risks. We’ll talk about finding the mentors and community to help support you in your journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur. And we’ll talk about that elusive secret ingredient: confidence.

Remember this: the qualities that make you a good doctor are ALSO the same qualities that will make you a great entrepreneur. You’re good at learning new things. You can talk to people. You’re resilient. You know how to negotiate. Tune in this week to learn how to build a sustainable medical career while also developing passive income streams. You’ve got this!

“Courage is not the absence of fear. It’s acting despite fear.”

– Dr. Pranay Parikh
