The older I get, the more I realize the importance of the saying: "Do what makes you happy." This concept applies especially to the decision a person makes in choosing and working in a career, as we spend many hours of our adult life in the workplace. And most peoples' careers typically last 35 to 40 years.
I must say that I have had the privilege of serving people as a Family Practice Doctor for the past 27 years in a few different capacities and roles. It has been a rewarding career thus far when it comes to helping patients feel better, whether it is physically or mentally. That's truly the great and satisfying part for me. The difficult part is all the bureaucracy involved in today's healthcare. It affects you whether you are a small town Doctor or in a huge corporate medical group. It is a very typical conversation that I hear nowadays among my doctor colleagues when we chat.
Although I still have many years to serve others as a Doctor, truth be told, I have always wanted to do a "fun" online business on the side--something I truly enjoy without the demands of my regular career. I have had all sorts of entrepreneurial ideas. My friends and family joke that I should be a professional party planner--because I love entertaining and having events. That is hard work, folks!! I love to garden, but it is truly a hobby.
At the right time, this Rodan + Fields business opportunity came along--and it fits the bill for me as being fun, yet I still get to help others feel better and more confident with clinically tested and proven products designed by two dermatologists. I love being CEO of Younger You, LLC. And I love, love, love the products! And most of all, I love the positive people in this business and the wonderful friends I have made. We support one another and we are a Team!
Do What makes YOU happy,
Dr. Younger You :)
