260: Momentum with Dr. Michelle Quirk

We’ve all felt the slump that this past year has brought. So many of us have felt stuck. Whether in our jobs, our homes, our workouts, or maybe in our relationships, we’ve felt like things have stopped. When Dr. Michelle Quirk started feeling this, she decided to build some momentum and get moving.    She’s an avid runner and has built a coaching business designed to help professional women to prioritize their well-being through fitness. She knew that if she was feeling that “stuckness” then it was time to do something about it.    How did she move forward? She started evaluating her emotions and why she was feeling the way that she was. Instead of feeling the restlessness that cancelled races started to have on her, she decided to rest in the pause.    Michelle started to refocus and figure out ways that she could alter her normal schedule of events and still create community and connection. She’s now running some virtual challenges and helping women step away from being stuck by starting with bite-sized goals.    It doesn’t matter if you’re on mile 0 or 1000, you have to start somewhere. Listen in to hear all about Michelle’s story, how she’s helping women, and how you can connect with her and start gaining some of your own momentum.    “It’s been a huge thing for me to show that the sport is available to everybody if they want it, and you don’t have to be a certain size or look a certain way.” Dr. Michelle Quirk In this episode: [02:16] Welcome back to the show, Dr. Michelle Quirk! [02:55] Dr. Quirk shares all the amazing things she is doing in the world. [05:47] Listen as Dr. Quirk discusses why she chose the word momentum. [07:33] The pandemic has taken the wind out of so many people’s sails with the loss of connection. [10:42] Dr. Quirk speaks about the whole experience of doing races and how she misses having them on her calendar. [11:26] It might be a good time to embrace the pause and then refocus and figure out why you are doing what you are doing. [13:37] Dr. Quirk shares some virtual challenges they have done. [15:00] Email me if you want to participate in a Doctor Me First 5K Race. [15:40] Dr. Quirk believes you should start with bite-size goals when getting back to exercise or just starting. [17:41] You don’t have to crush it every day; keep your easy runs easy. The first step is putting on your sneakers. [19:22] Thank you for being on the show!

259: Solocast – To All Those Getting Ready To Graduate

I recently had a listener write in and ask me to expand on ways to avoid burnout, before it even happens. Graduation is just around the corner for many med students and one thing your degree doesn’t cover is the effects of burnout and how to avoid it.    When I received the request to go over this topic from Taylor, I thought it was an amazing idea. So, my tips for avoiding burnout or if you’ve already beaten it, keeping it at bay!   First, get your stuff straight now. Write out how you’re feeling, your general thoughts, anything that’s going on right now for you. Write it all out and do this for a week, a month, two months. Don’t wait to start this process!    Then start where you’re at. Meet your basic needs today. Think Maslow here. If you have basic needs that aren’t being met, get them met! You can’t do better for yourself and others if your basic needs are still outstanding.    Next, learn the difference between thoughts, facts, and feelings. There IS a difference between these and knowing the difference allows you to take better stock of your mindset day in and day out.    Last, get really comfortable with fear and how to talk to it. I mean that literally. We all have fears, but your fears don’t get a voice in your decisions, your life, or your needs. Learn how to put fear in its place and to keep moving and striding forward and you’ll find so much more fulfillment.    When you have a better idea of your own personal needs and how they’re affected by the profession you’ve chosen, you’ll be steps closer to fighting off the clutches of burnout! Have questions? Reach out! I’m only an email away.   “We have gotten so good at delayed gratification that we don’t even realize when it slips around our neck and becomes a noose.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [03:04] Here are my five top tips for staying out of burnout. [03:16] My first tip is to get your stuff straight now. [04:13] Tip #2: Start where you are at now, meet your basic needs today. [05:49] You must learn the difference between thoughts, facts and feelings. [10:16] Tip #4: What is your dream life? [12:19] My final tip is to learn to have a conversation with fear. [15:18] Let me know if you have topics you want me to do solocasts on.

258: Clarity with Kelli Thompson

It’s amazing how vulnerable being clear with others can make you feel. Think about it. How often do you tell people how you truly feel? How often do you speak out with clarity and confidence about what you need? Kelli Thompson is a leadership coach who is passionate about helping women find their clarity and confidence.    After spending years in corporate America she realized that her passion lay in helping women make it into the rooms where decisions are made. Not as the “token” HR representative but as an impactful member of the conversation.    She’s joining me to chat about why clarity is so important to her and why she has made it her mission to help other women find theirs. Because when women advance, they’re much more likely to reach back and help others as well. Listen as she shares more about her background and experience and what she’s doing to help more women reach new heights in business and leadership. Stop climbing the wrong career ladders using outdated information! Take a page out of Kelli’s book and change your mindset.    Because our need to rise to the top and be more productive and ear more recognition is one of the main causes of burnout. But there IS a better way!    “The more clear I got, the more successful I was, the more clear I got, the happier I was, and the more clear I got, the more money I made.” Kelli Thompson In this episode: [02:16] Welcome to the show, Kelli! [02:29] Kelli shares a little about herself and what she is doing now. [04:37] Women believe that if they want to be successful, they need to act like their male counterparts. [07:15] What causes burnout is the pressure to conform. [10:04] Only 23% of women are senior executives; something has to give. [13:25] Listen as Kelli shares why she picked the word Clarity. [17:13] Why she focuses so much on women. [20:23] It’s not enough to fill a chair in the room where decisions are made. [23:15] “At the end of the day, someone is counting on your unique calling.” [26:01] Kelli discusses her new group program that starts March 23rd called The Clarity & Confidence Leadership Masterclass. [27:09] Thank you for being on the show!

257: Over-drinking with Angela Mascenik

With the lockdowns and added stress of the pandemic, it’s no wonder that alcohol intake has increased. Does this mean that alcoholism has increased or are we dealing with the ramifications of a very destructive coping mechanism?    Angela Mascenik joins me to chat about her journey and why it is rarely about the alcohol itself and all about why you’re drinking instead. For many of us, drinking begins at a much earlier age than is recommended or legal.    Our public school systems, diet changes, and increased childhood pressures are likely to blame, but what do we do when drinking becomes our main coping mechanism? For many, this spells a recipe for disaster and addiction.   For Angela it spelled the same. She decided to bring on a coach to help her get to the bottom of her drinking habits and hasn’t looked back since. Now she’s dedicated to helping others figure out why they drink and if they choose, ways to kick the habit to the curb.    It’s funny because we all know how much we can drink and still live a fully healthy life, but so few of us pay any mind to that. We keep on imbibing and keep on giving ourselves excuses for why. But once you get to the bottom of your drinking habit, you may find that you no longer need it.    If you’ve found yourself taking in more alcohol than you’d like, listen in and learn more about ways to get to the bottom of your reason for drinking.   “It’s not about the alcohol, it’s about why you are drinking it in the first place.” Angela Mascenik In this episode: [02:18] Welcome to the show, Angela Mascenik! [02:37] Angela discusses the magic she shares with the world. [05:40] It's not about the alcohol, it's about why you are drinking it in the first place. [05:55] Listen as Angela shares her journey and struggles with alcohol and her weight. [09:10] Life coaching changed her entire life. [11:29] She helps her clients get their energy and feelings in alignment. [13:28] Angela discusses the first step you can take to figure out why you are drinking or eating or other destructive behaviors. [15:11] The next step is learning how to feel those uncomfortable feelings you are trying to escape from. [18:04] Angela wants you to listen to your feelings because they are trying to tell you something. [20:54] Thank you for being on the show!

256: Peer Support with Dr. Susan Wilson

Dr. Susan Wilson has focused on peer support throughout her career, but when she had to quit medicine due to her own medical issues, she realized just how important it is. Listen as she shares her experience and why she’s so passionate about peer support and coaching today.   When you’re spiraling through grief and depression due to some really terrible medical news, what do you do? If you’re a doctor, having the support of your medical peers is extremely important.    This is also the case if you’re working in high trauma departments or fields. When it comes down to it, we are on the front lines of some of the worst physically and mentally traumatic experiences that the human body and mind can and do experience.    What does that do to us? After having to leave practice as an emergency medical physician, Dr. Wilson wanted to continue her work in peer support. She is now a coach and provides acute support for colleagues who are experiencing traumatic events.    She shares her views on the difference between peer support and coaching and why both are an absolute must in the healthcare field. She’s also talking about her coaching career and how it has changed since Covid.    If you’ve ever experienced a traumatic moment in your career then you really won’t want to miss this discussion.   “The idea of peer support is more of an acute support or assistance for someone that's really needing help right now. They need something right away to buoy them through the event.” Dr. Susan Wilson   In this episode: [03:44] Welcome to the show, Dr. Susan Wilson! [03:56] Dr. Wilson shares her background and what she is doing now. [05:46] She talks about the stages of grief she went through when she was told she had a medical condition that wouldn't let her keep practicing medicine. [08:28] Listen, as Dr. Wilson shares her idea of peer support for second victim syndrome. [11:29] Her practice has changed through the pandemic and the change in patients' needs. [14:31] Dr. Wilson believes the system's issues need to be addressed, but in the meantime, having peer support in place is so important. [17:20] The education piece towards organizations is critical, and having an advocate is important. [19:02] Dr. Wilson shares her rooftop message. [20:38] Thank you for coming on the show!

255: Married To An Alpha Female

Did you know that some of our listeners only listen to the Married to an Alpha Female episodes? It’s true! Thank you so much to everyone who listens to these because we love doing them.    Okay, now to get into our discussion!    Not much has been going on down on the farm. Craig has been taking grain to market, and no that does not include a horse and buggy, but it has been oddly impacted by Covid. For instance, some of his grain gets shipped to Japan to make beer, but the market has been down due to Covid. Why? Because in Japan they only drink beer at the bar. People don’t drink at home. It’s crazy how societal differences impact people all over the world.   We also do some scrapping to make money on the side for birthdays, Christmas, traveling, you know, life stuff. These past few months scrap prices have been way down, but lately they’ve been going back up. Why? Covid.   Again, it’s so interesting how our economy is affected by what’s happening around the world and here at home.  Listen in to hear all about our son Briar’s birthday wish and why we may need to get our kids out of the house more as well as what you can do to empower your Alpha Female. Let us know how you like these episodes and definitely what you’d like to hear more of!   “There are some listeners that only listen to the Married to an Alpha Female episodes.” Errin and Craig Weisman   In this episode: [02:37] Let's start by listening to what's happening down on the farm with Craig. [06:39] Errin discusses all the things that come from overseas that have been at a shortage. [08:25] Listen as they share their recent trip to Olive Garden for Briar’s birthday. [10:23] This time last year they were in Atlanta, Georgia, for a Physicians Coaching Alliance retreat. [12:47] They both believe that Kansas City will win the Superbowl.

254: Vaginacologist with Dr. Teresa Irwin

We all know that female reproductive and general health has always been lower on the totem pole in the medical field. Only in recent years has the narrative begun to change and one of the big players in that is Dr. Teresa Irwin. She’s the Vaginacologist and she’s here to share her story and why she’s so passionate about women’s health.    So how did she come up with the name the Vaginacologist? She didn’t! Her 15 year old son was trying to explain what his mother did and came up with it for her, but seriously… isn’t that the best title ever?    Teresa now spends her time creating resources for women all over the world to better their reproductive health. She covers everything from properly completing kegels to the benefits of proper diet and exercise and even performs surgery as a last resort.    In fact, did you know that one of the top women’s sports is to blame for incontinence? Not pregnancy?    Listen in to hear about the different types of kegel exercises and why they matter as well as the reasons you should practice proper positioning for relieving yourself. That’s right, you can pee and poop in such a way that makes incontinence worse.  This really was an amazing conversation full of extremely pertinent information that every woman, young or old, needs to hear.    “It’s not just about learning about kegel exercises, a lot of things you do every day just make it worse.” Dr. Teresa Irwin In this episode: [01:41] Welcome to the show, Dr. Teresa Irwin! [02:01] Dr. Irwin shares her title and what she does. [03:58] How the Vaginacologist brand got started. [08:45] The risk factors associated with vagina issues. [11:30] Listen as she discusses the two areas that kegels need to work separately. [15:44] TikTok is the platform Dr. Irwin chose to get her message to the younger generation. [17:55] Which sports can contribute to stress incontinence and how to mitigate the damage. [21:57] Grab the free downloads she offers on her website. [25:58] Thank you so much for being on the show!

253: Solocast – Student Loans

This is not a political episode… I don’t care where you fall on the issue of student loans, but I DO care about how you relate to your student loans. So often I hear people take on personal identifiers when they talk about their student loans. It’s as if the loan itself has some sort of hold over our identity.    Things I’ve heard, and thought, in relation to student loans:    If I leave medicine then I’m breaking a promise that I made when I signed the promissory note… If I leave, then I’m weak. If I leave, then how will I pay these back.  I got the loans, so I have to stay and suffer until I pay them back.   But here’s the thing, your student loans and the officers that manage them, don’t have any emotion tied to them. You either pay them back, or you don’t. There is no morality in a piece of paper being written to pay for your education.    So I wanted to bring this up because our thoughts around student loans are damaging and in many ways, contribute to the burnout culture that we live in. Just because you have student loans does not mean that you are a bad person or that you deserve to suffer.    Want to hear more? Listen in and start making strides to separate the emotion from the money. Because in the grand scheme of things, that loan is there. You will pay it off. It doesn’t matter if you’re in medicine, it will get done. But are you willing to give up by focusing on this mountain of debt?     “Somewhere along the way we have made student loans mean something morally about us.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [02:52] Today we are talking about student loans and how they perpetuate your burnout. [04:14] I want to get into the thoughts we have around student loans because they are damaging. [06:56] When we are wrestling with the student loan question they are usually wrapped up in, did I make a mistake becoming a doctor? [10:21] I had a hard time deciding to quit my job with the student loans still hanging over my head until the wonderful Mr. Weisman shared his wisdom. [11:20] Welcome your thoughts in and invite them to sit down and have a drink. [12:34] I want you to just do the math and find the facts over the feelings. [15:32] My last tip is to own it all.

251: Solocast – You Can Figure This Out – Self-Trust

You can figure this out. You can honestly figure anything out. Do you ever find yourself thinking that you’re a failure and that you’ve just reached the end of what you can do? Guess what, you haven’t.    No matter if things are going right or if things are going wrong, you will be able to figure out the next step. You didn’t make it through your residency and all those years of medical school to have absolutely no ability to “figure it out!”    Here’s the thing, being successful isn’t about having all the things and gaining all the accolades. Being successful is knowing that you trust in yourself and that you will be able to face whatever comes next.    The bumps aren’t going to get you because you know that you will find a solution. You don’t have to change your life today. You don’t have to change your life at all. You can keep doing exactly what you’re doing and if you’re finding happiness and fulfillment, then that’s perfect.   But if you’re ready for a change, maybe it’s time to come have some conversations with me and the wonderful group that I’m coaching!   “Being successful is having the trust and the faith in yourself that no matter what comes knocking, no matter what bumps into you, you’re going to figure it out.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [02:25] Are you ready? It’s story time. [05:06] You can figure it out! [05:40] I think we all have issues with self-trust. [07:45] You have solved problems before and you will do it time and time again.

250: Gatekeeper With Dr. Nii Darko

What do you do when a fellow alum is running in similar circles as you? Do a podcast swap! Dr. Nii Darko and I have been in each other’s spheres for years, but everything has finally aligned for us to chat about all things business and gatekeepers.    Honestly, this interview was truly amazing. I have been following Dr. Darko’s journey for years and it is just so inspiring. Between paying off debt, living a more abundant life, though he wouldn’t necessarily call it that, and cultivating a far reaching impact, it has been amazing to watch.    His word today was gatekeeper and it really was the perfect word to describe the changes in our abilities as doctors to reach the public. Even 10 or 15 years ago, you couldn’t have reached as many people as intimately because there were gatekeepers everywhere.   Fast-forward to today and it’s so much easier for us to not only have a voice, but to be heard as well. It’s on us to bring light to the issues in the industry and the profession and it is an honor to be in Dr. Darko’s company while doing this myself.   Listen as we chat about our history, our drives, and what it has been like for us to pay off the massive amount of debt incurred to become doctors. We both feel very passionately that we as doctors need to do more both for each other and the public.I’m happy to report, that we certainly are doing the damn thing!   “If you wait until it’s perfect, you probably waited too long.” Dr. Nii Darko In this episode: [02:51] Welcome to the show, Dr. Darko! [03:30] Dr. Darko speaks about his podcast Docs Outside The Box. [06:52] "If you are willing to put your stuff out there and you don't care what the trolls say, that's when you know you are rolling."  [10:29] Listen as Dr. Darko shares why he picked the word gatekeeper. [12:45] When he realized there was no gatekeeper. [16:00] Dr. Darko talks about doing extra jobs to get his debt paid off sooner. [20:26] What I’ve learned by following Dr. Darko's podcast and his journey. [24:34] What is a poor mentality? [27:00] It's learning to not work for money but make money.

249: Solocast – Burnout Destroyed My Faith Belief System

Burnout destroyed my faith. There’s no other way to say it. Having grown up as a conservative Baptist I fully expected medicine to bring me closer to God. Instead I chafed against beliefs that weren’t supported by my experiences and that I had been questioning for a long time.    But burnout took those beliefs and put a huge crack right down the middle of them. I couldn’t believe that God wasn’t stepping in to help me through some really dark times and everything I’d been told just seemed… ridiculous.    Since coming out of burnout, I’ve begun building new beliefs and honestly feel like I’m more spiritual than I have ever been. But it was a hard road. I’m digging deep today. Sharing some really dark times and giving some perspective on what it really meant to leave behind beliefs that had been ingrained in me from my first days on Earth.    Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen miraculous things happen. I haven’t suddenly become an Atheist and believe that there is nothing out there, but the way I believe now is nothing like it was then.    … and burnout is the reason why it all changed.    “I was getting ready to go to work on Monday and the dark, dark cloud of dread was just all over my house and all over me.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [03:37] I share my religious background. [06:30] Listen as I share how my burnout destroyed my faith. [08:50] I decided it was time to talk to the pastor, and I share my conversation with Pastor Logan. [12:28] Pastor Logan changed other things in me. Not all of her ideas were right for me, but she got me implanted in the church. [15:27] Sitting in the muck allowed me to come to new truths. [17:35] I speak about what has become my new belief system. [21:18] I now lean into what feels aligned, real and true to me.

247: Solocast – Throw Away Your Gratitude Journal and Busy Work

When I was in the pit of burnout, having one more thing to do or focus on was the absolute last thing I needed. So many people talked about gratitude journaling and focusing on goals and creating vision boards… but I couldn’t even focus on things that were right in front of me. Are you drowning in burnout? This is for you!   Have you ever been told you should start a gratitude journal and your first thought was, yes… that will make me feel better. Then you don’t do it and you feel guilty for not acknowledging the things you’re grateful for?    Stop! There is no “busy work” technique that is going to magically wash away your burnout. There is also no one way to truly get out of the pit of burnout. But giving yourself one more thing to do is certainly not going to help you.    Listen as I share my experiences and what it took to make me realize that the things others were pushing on me were actually making my burnout worse. If you’re there, then listen close and give yourself some grace!   “If you are feeling great, you’ve already figured out how to have joy and invite gratitude in.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [00:32] I am so excited you are with me today! [02:45] Let me tell you why I think you need to throw away your gratitude journal. [05:14] It’s okay not to do a daily gratitude journal! [08:50] I want you to try a resentment journal. [09:35] I really believe that feelings are emotions are sign posts for unmet needs and wants. [11:00] Listen as I share my definition of toxic positivity and give some examples of what I mean. [14:15] When we give a compassionate response, it feels more meaningful. [16:45] Thank you for listening!   Links and Resources   3 WAYS TO GET INCREDIBLE HELP AT LOW-COST!!!

246: 4thTrimester Renaissance with Dr. Sonal Patel

When it comes to postnatal care, the United States healthcare system has a lot of catching up to do. The fact that we have one of the highest maternal and infant death rates of any 1st world country is evidence of that. Dr. Sonal Patel recognized this fact and is doing her part to serve new moms and babies in her community to the highest standard.   Dr. Patel has built an in-home private postpartum care practice that sees mom and baby together, in the comfort of their own home.

245: Solocast – What’s The Difference Between Grind and Hustle Culture and Working Toward Your Goals

Did you know that there’s a huge difference between grinding and hustling and actually working toward your goals? I’m sharing the difference and how many of us use our work to escape everything else. It’s an addiction and it’s time to quit.    I started working on a new book and it really inspired me to get to the root of this issue that I have with overworking. It’s a problem that I’ve had since I was very young. I was driven and if I wasn’t moving and going and succeeding at something then I was devastated.    But that’s not how we’re supposed to live our lives. Hustle is not the way to success. It is a one-way ticket to burnout town and life of dissatisfaction. Which is why I’m sharing my tips on quitting the hustle and leaving work in its proper place.    Listen in to hear why time blocking and accurately estimating your time blocks are both extremely important. Wherever your “work” blocks are in your schedule, do the work for the time you’ve allotted and then walk away.    Don’t forget to schedule in some white space into your calendar. If you don’t schedule it in, it won’t happen. So put it on your schedule and make it non-negotiable.    These tips really will help you see a whole new side to life. Don’t believe me? Just try it and let me know what you think and how you FEEL!   “I’m here to be a voice in a conversation, not the guru.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [08:16] Hear a segment from the book she is working on. [10:31] Working has always been her addiction and her drug. [13:45] Listen as I share my tips for transitioning from a hustle system into achieving your goals in a sustainable way. [13:55] Tip #1 is time blocking. [15:57] Tip #2 accurately estimating your time blocks. [17:05] Tip #3 do your work, and when the time in your time block is up, walk away. [18:24] Tip #4 you must have time in your schedule for white space, fun and pleasure, and sleep. [23:44] Tip #5 delegate.

243: Married To An Alpha Female

It’s the last episode of 2020 and Craig and I wanted to do it together. There has been a lot going on this year in general so it felt right to end it all with just us, talking about the family, and things we’ve learned along the way. Listen in to hear the last Married to an Alpha Female episode of 2020.   First up, Craig and I dig into what’s happening down on the farm. Honestly, it’s pretty darn interesting. The harvest is officially over and now it’s time to do an evaluation of the land. Which plots yielded more, which less, and why. Plus Craig is prepping for the rainy season and making sure that the ground is equipped to slough off excess.   This land has been in Craig’s family for generations and it’s crazy how we put our marks on it in such a permanent way that years later we know what happened back then. This is a deep dive into farming and it’s super neat.    Then we move into Things Craig Doesn’t Know. There really isn’t a ton but some of it is important...and fun! Things like what the kids are getting for Christmas. Nope...Craig doesn’t know. And what’s coming up next in my business and practice. Some of that he was aware of.    We make it a point not to have to share every detail of our lives because we trust each other. We’re in this as a partnership for life, not for business or money.    Honestly, this was one of our most fun Married to an Alpha Female episodes and my tips are truly perfect for the partners of those alphas. Craig and I use these in our everyday lives and it helps us respect and acknowledge each other as humans and partners.    Listen in to learn more and see you in 2021!   “We chose each other as life partners, not as business partners.” Errin and Craig Weisman   In this episode: [02:05] Let's start by listening to what's happening down on the farm with Craig. [04:14] Craig explains what tiling is and why you put a pipe in a field. [10:16] Quick mental picture of what these pipes look like. [13:04] They talk about what pattern tiling is a relatively new procedure and what the old procedure was like. [17:55] It's not necessary to know everything that's going on in each other's lives, and that's how you build trust. [22:07] It's time for the Things That Craig Doesn't Know segment. [22:07] Craig doesn't know everything the kids are getting. [25:16] Craig doesn't know the name of the new podcast Errin is launching. [27:09] Craig has no idea about the new cheetah picture on the wall. [30:38] Craig doesn't know that Errin got published in Indigo Blue as an entrepreneurial expert talking about toxic work environments. [31:30] January is going to be big.

242: Feelings with Dr. Katrina Ubell

Ever had some huge emotions swamp you and all you could think was, “Feelings… yuck!”? Well believe it or not, you are in control of your feelings and emotions and they are the key to unlocking success and fulfillment. Don’t believe me? Dr. Katrina Ubell is here to share why this is true and why her methods work for her clients.    Dr. Ubell is known as the weight loss coach for busy physicians but what she really does is so much more impactful. After spending years of her life on the yo-yo of dieting, losing and gaining weight in equal measure, she knew there had to be a change.    It took having a pretty huge emotional event happen for her to realize that it was time to bring in an expert. She started with a life coach and what she realized was that her weight loss or gain was directly related with the feelings and emotions she was experiencing.    From there she was able to take charge of her emotions and she’s been finding success and fulfillment ever since. She was one of the very first physician coaches that I started following and unbeknownst to her, she’s the reason that I knew this path was possible.   Listen as we chat about her background, the role of emotions in our lives, and why you don’t have to be ruled by them nor do you need to suppress them. So much of what we learn as doctors is to ignore what’s going on in your body so that you can just keep pressing on. It’s time to stop and we’re sharing how you can do it!   “Feelings are everything, feelings are so important, feelings do create all of our results, but we totally have control over what we are feeling.” Dr. Katrina Ubell   In this episode: [01:50] Welcome to the show, Dr. Katrina! [03:53] Dr. Katrina shares her background and what she is doing now. [08:25] Dr. Katrina speaks about how nice it is to hear that she is making a difference in people’s lives. [11:22] Dr. Katrina discusses how even though you have evidence that people love what you are doing, you will focus on the one negative review. [15: 29] Being average is perfectly ok. [17:37] Listen as Dr. Katrina shares why she picked the word feelings. [20:19] Dr. Katrina spends a lot of time with her clients teaching, them how to actually process emotions. [24:19] “Our emotions are created by our thoughts.” [26:19] Emotions are data points for unmet needs. [31:00] Dr. Katrina speaks about neural pathways and rerouting them.

241: Solocast – Fear

We all feel fear,  but what do you do when it comes over you? For many the answer is to let it drive your actions and how you approach your life. But what if you could feel the fear, understand its place in your life, and still make strides towards your goals? You can!   There are two books that have been instrumental in how I talk about and think about fear. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert and The Art of Fear: Why Conquering Fear Won’t Work and What To Do Instead by Kristen Ulmer. In both, the authors share ways to approach fear without losing your drive or passion.    In Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert writes a letter to fear. She lets fear know that he can come along on the ride with creativity, but that he’s there as an observer only. He doesn’t get to talk, share an opinion, mess with the music, and most importantly, he’s not allowed to drive.    Isn’t it amazing to think about talking to your fears in this way? Acknowledge that they exist but then remind them who is boss and what their role is in your life?    I think that is so empowering and it’s helped me to rethink the role of fear in my life and my business. Listen as I share my insights about The Art of Fear as well and why I use both of these books with my own coaching clients. I’m also sharing my tips on approaching fear with a healthy respect and perspective.    “So many times in my own life, fear was the driver.” Dr. Errin Weisman   In this episode: [01:20] We are talking about fear today. [02:10] Hear a letter to fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. [05:23] Learn about the monster in the basement as Kristen Ulmer described it in her book. [10:32] Sit down and think about your fear monster and have a conversation with him. [11:29] Whatever you repress becomes your represser. [15:29] My Errinisms about using fear more wisely.

240: Identity with Dr. Tracy Asamoah

239: Permission with Dr. Kara Pepper

You are worthy, you simply need to give yourself permission to believe it.    Dr. Pepper followed her childhood dream and became a physician, had the husband, and had the two kids.

It is okay to say no. It is a complete sentence and it is fully within your right to tell others no when you’re being asked to do things that do not serve you. Which is why I’m sharing my tips and tricks for canceling the hustle culture and taking better care of yourself.    It is okay for you to do anything you need to do to protect your peace, safety, freedom, autonomy, and your bank account.

Listen as I share my list of excuses that you can no longer use.    It’s never too late to make the changes you want to see in yourself and your life.

236: Stress Relief with Dr. Leslie Koenig

Becoming a doctor means dealing with stress all day every day as you work to help better your patient’s lives. As you well know, it starts while you’re in school and typically just escalates as you start building out your life and practice. So what’s the best way to deal with stress and making sure that you don’t reach a place of burnout?    For Dr. Leslie Koenig stress relief equals being mindful of her energy and her brain space and meditating to stay in a place of flow.    She didn’t always think that meditation was going to be the key for her. In fact for many years she was extremely skeptical of the practice. But as her stressors increased she found herself looking for a quiet space to just breathe and the meditation techniques that she learned helped move her through.    Listen as she shares her experience being one of the first physicians in her area exposed to Covid and why it was the catalyst for her creating her Stress Relief Survival Guide. This was an amazing conversation with a fantastic physician and person and if you’ve been feeling the cold claws of stress, you won’t want to miss it.   In this episode: [01:47] Welcome to the show, Dr. Leslie Koenig!

235: Rules with Dr. Devon Gimbel

Do you ever find yourself looking at life through a lens of rules that you have no memory of creating for yourself? For physicians, but especially female physicians, there are a host of rules that internalize in our lives, but are they really the rules we want to have around our lives?    Dr. Devon Gimbel is one of my business besties and a true friend in this life and she’s here to talk about how she kicked her rules to the curb and found a better, more fulfilled life.    So, what are these rules we’re talking about? For Devon, one rule was that you never call in sick. If you called in sick as a physician then you were lazy and not serious about your career. She recalls having the worst bout of food poisoning ever and still going into work because she was scared of what others would think.   One of my own rules was that all patients lie, so we have to figure out the real story. Which is actually something that is taught to us in school, but who is that helping and how does that impact our relationship with our patients.    Listen as we chat about the various rules we’ve had in our careers and what it took for us to realize that other people’s rules do not have to dictate our lives. This is a very powerful episode and the conversation continues over in the Patreon group, so if you’d like more, join us there.   “You are never locked in to doing one thing, one way for the rest of your life.” Dr. Devon Gimbel   In this episode: [01:47] Welcome to the show, Dr. Devon Gimbel! [02:10] Dr. Gimbel shares her background and what she brings to the world. [04:58] Listen as she speaks about the rules we set up in our heads. [11:27] One rule that has permeated my life as a physician. [14:52] Dr. Gimbel discusses what happens if you decide to step away from clinical medicine. [17:04] Dr. Gimbel talks about how she coaches people around these rules. [22:52] She says to get really clear on, what am I doing this for and what am I doing this from? [25:26] “If it feels like crap, you are probably doing it right.”  [26:03] Dr. Gimbel believes that once you are clear, the next step is having your own back.

234: Confidence with Dr. Beth Pederson & Dr. Debrah Wirtzfeld

Many of us go through life believing that we either have innate confidence or we don’t, but what if being confident was really a skill that you develop over time? There have been years of studies that suggest most human beings and women in particular, develop confidence rather than simply having it.    Listen as Dr. Beth Pederson and Dr. Debrah Wirtzfeld share how they started working in the field of professional confidence and why it is so important to them.   As Covid began to bare its ugly head, both Beth and Debrah realized that they needed to take their executive coaching to a new level. Many professionals were lost in a sea of impostor syndrome and they knew that they could help.   They’ve developed specific tips and processes to help professional women find their strengths and use those to develop their confidence as a whole. Because women in all areas of the workforce need to build and understand their strengths and reveal their confidence within.   If you’ve struggled with showing and sharing your own confidence then you won't want to miss this powerful conversation.   “Confidence is in your actions and the networks you form” Dr. Debrah Wirtzfeld   “As you get skills of confidence, you will live your absolute worth.” Dr. Beth Pederson   In this episode: [01:30] Welcome to the show, Dr. Pederson & Dr. Wirtzfeld!

233: Solocast – Winter is Coming

Winter time and the holidays in particular are not necessarily happy times for everyone. No matter if you’ve lost someone or if the holidays just always trigger anxiety and depression, there are ways to combat the triggers. Listen in to hear my four tips to make this the best winter ever.   First up, lower your obligations. Feeling like you’re obligated to do certain things is the leading cause of anxiety, but are you TRULY obligated? No. This year especially there will likely be a reduction of your “responsibilities” during the holiday season. Make a list of all of your normal obligations and start marking off the ones that you can.    Reducing the load of obligations is the first step to having a much better holiday season.   Next, reduce the size of your expectations. Rome wasn’t built in a day and you can’t have holiday celebrations in five different places in a day either. At least not in an enjoyable way. Stop expecting the world of yourself in this time and make realistic goals!   And don’t forget to go on some adventures. The winter time is a great time to reconnect with nature. It may be chilly outside, but there are fewer bugs and fewer plants that could cause you issues. Take a hike, chop down a tree, go on a safe road trip. Make time to have fun.   Listen in to hear my last tip because it really is the best of the bunch! The winter time and the holidays are stressful, but they don’t have to be so overwhelming. How are you making the most of this time?    “White space is a time of just being and experiencing, not doing.” Dr. Errin Weisman   In this episode: [05:12] I’m sharing tips on how to make this the best winter ever. [05:24] Lower your obligations is the first tip. [07:23] Tip #2 is have bite size expectations. [08:36] Have winter adventures is tip #3. [10:23] Tip #4 make this a time of growth, rest, recovery and restoration. [17:07] Your kick of encouragement. 3 WAYS TO GET INCREDIBLE HELP AT LOW-COST!!!

232: Flexibility with Suzie Brown

Coming out of one fellowship and looking at starting into the process of another, Suzie Brown felt trapped. She’d spent her life pursuing medicine but never found the fulfillment she thought she’d feel. Instead, she’s found comfort, solace, and peace in creating music.   Suzie has been involved with music her whole life, but her dream was medicine. She specialized in cardiology and found herself on the long path toward cardiac research and clinical medicine.

And she’s still doing the same today. She’s been able to build quite the body of musical work while still impacting the world through her work in cardiology.    Listen as she shares her story and why this path has been the best for her. She also digs into why flexibility is so important to her, now more than ever, but really has always had a place in her life.    If you’ve always felt called to do something for your soul, then this is the episode for you.   “More than any other time in my life, I didn’t care what they thought because I had clarity about what I needed to be happy.” Suzie Brown   In this episode: [01:51] I’m so excited to have you on the show, Suzie!

231: Married to An Alpha Female

It’s been a while friends. Things have been crazy down on the farm, but Craig and I finally had a moment to sit down and record another Alpha Female episode! Get ready to hear all the updates for the Weisman family!   First up, Craig is talking about the harvest. As usual we have too much grain for the size of our operation so things are quite hectic. It doesn’t help that he got into an accident as well. Listen in to hear all about it. I’m definitely looking forward to the harvest being over so I can have my husband back!   We’re continuing on with “Things Craig Doesn’t Know!” But first, did you know that we recently got some kittens? We were supposed to only have 2 but we ended up with 4 and they’re all healthy and sweet. But what I didn’t expect and what Craig doesn’t know is that I think I’m an ambi-pet lover.    That’s right. I’m no longer JUST a dog lover. Keep listening to hear all the other things Craig doesn’t know this week.    Did you know that no matter how “together” your Alpha Female’s life seems to be, that she’s still scared of rejection? It’s true! In many ways we are all scared of rejection, but for the Alpha Female in your life, that means that she is less likely to reach out when she needs help. So take time to reach out to her!   “Even though your alpha female kicks ass and takes names we are still all fearful of rejection.”  Dr. Errin Weisman   In this episode: [01:48] Craig starts out with his down on the farm segment discussing harvest.

230: Passive Income with Dr. Jeffrey Anzalone

One thing we don’t learn in medical school is how to run a business. Which means that we don’t learn about investing and creating new income streams. For Dr. Jeffrey Anzalone this became a problem, right out of school.    The job that he thought was his was ripped out from under him which left him with a 2 month old, $300k in debt, a new home loan, and no way to pay anything. He did get back on his feet, but he realized how important it was to address the huge amounts of debt that doctors take on to learn about their field.    It wasn’t until he injured his right hand many years later that he realized the impact of not having multiple income streams. He was faced with his own mortality and knew that he wouldn’t necessarily always be able to provide with his main income.    Listen as he shares his journey into learning more about passive income and creating multiple income streams. This concept is so important for all adults but very important for doctors.    Have you considered a way to build passive income into your life?    “Everybody is walking around with a problem and if you can figure out a solution to that problem and it’s something that you like, that's where you need to start.” Dr. Jeffrey Anzalone   In this episode: [01:24] Welcome to the show, Dr. Anzalone! [01:55] Dr. Anzalone shares his background and how he is living the dream. [02:34] Listen, as Dr. Anzalone discusses the journey to where he is now financially. [08:42] Dr. Anzalone discusses the things he wants anyone listening to this podcast to walk away with. [10:50] Dr. Anzalone shares a study he read about how much money you need to retire and continue your current lifestyle. [13:22] He speaks about some other ways you can have passive income. [17:55] Dr. Anzalone believes that the way he is investing now allows you to do what you want to do. [19:05] Dr. Anzalone talks about what he would say to the risk-averse person who is listening.

229: Be Happy Now Masterclass on Boundaries

Boundaries are important for life. We need them in our relationships, in our work, and with ourselves so that we can maintain a healthy lifestyle and mindset. In October’s “Be Happy Now Masterclass” we talked all about boundaries and what we can do to make them stronger.    For so many people, doctors especially, the concept of having healthy boundaries is foreign. But they’re imperative to a healthy career and a healthy life. So how do you go about evaluating your own boundaries and building them back up?    First, take a moment and do a self assessment. Do you tend to overshare? Is TMI your middle name? Then you likely have loose boundaries and you need to work on shoring them up. On the flip side, do you ever feel like there’s a force field around you, your emotions, and your ability to talk to others? Then it’s time to bring your boundaries back down.    Listen as I share the seven most important things to remember about boundaries and the nine steps to take to improve yours. Your boundaries are meant to keep you healthy and sane, not isolate you from the world around you.    After you’ve listened to this masterclass, take a moment and sign up for the November masterclass. We’re going to be talking all about frustrations and the healthy way to experience them and let them go. Will you be there?    “No, is a complete sentence.” Dr. Errin Weismann   In this episode: [00:30] Hey there, my friends! [03:11] The ladies in the class share what they are doing. [04:40] How boundaries contribute to being stuck. [08:03] It’s important to have a physical representation of what your boundaries feel like.

228: You Are Not Broken with Dr. Tonya Caylor

If you’re a full fledged doctor who has completed all of your residency rounds, do you remember the days of residency? If you’re a resident, do you ever feel like you’re simply surviving day to day? You don’t have to live like that. Dr. Tonya Caylor is a resident wellness advocate and she’s sharing her thoughts on changing the practice of residency.   While overall the residency period is important, it’s not practical to run people into the ground for a calling. Most doctors and nurses will say that they’ve been called to medicine and that helping others is simply in their DNA, why would our current system want to cull that out of us.    Dr. Caylor has been focusing on residency wellness and supporting residents in her area to understand their rights and their responsibility to themselves. You see, it is irresponsible to suggest that the pace and requirements of residency are necessary to become a good doctor.    Experiencing various rotations and having a better understanding of the variety of ways doctors affect patient lives is a requirement. Because a well rounded doctor is a much better doctor.    Listen as Dr. Caylor shares her thoughts on resident wellness and why it is so important. She also reminds us why it is so important to take time off when necessary and to quell the negative self-talk we all indulge in. You are a badass, it’s time you believed it too!   “We have to let go of perfectionism and we’ve got to get rid of the self doubt.” Dr. Tonya Caylor   In this episode: [01:42] Welcome to the show, Dr. Caylor!

How would you ever move past the mom guilt and the expectations?    Dr. Leslie Cadet has been there, done that, and now she’s coaching other single mothers how to do the same. After leaving an abusive relationship, she knew that nothing would ever be the same.

If you have ever felt like you’re drowning in the experience of motherhood, then you won’t want to miss this episode.   “You are in this lane where you have perceived notions of what motherhood is supposed to be when you have the power to make that definition for yourself.” Dr. Leslie Cadet   In this episode: [00:30] Wake up, call my friend!

226: Secret Dreams with Dr. Toni Liu

Living authentically and being yourself are not always the easiest things to do in this world. Sometimes being you and making choices that make you happy is the hardest thing you’ll ever do. But according to Dr. Toni Liu, it’s also one of the most rewarding.    Secretly, Dr. Liu has always wanted to be a cartoonist, but she was scared to share that part of herself with the world. While experiencing burnout in her medical career, she found herself drawn back to art and began creating again. This led her to realize that her true passion was no longer to be a doctor, if it ever was.   She then started using her art to educate her patients and make it very easy to remember some of the more important details of female health. Now she’s a life coach helping to spread the reality of living a life that is true to your dreams, passions, and beliefs.   Dr. Liu is also looking forward to traveling the world and living the nomad life.

Listen as she shares her story and how she found her way to DPC.   It didn’t take long for Dr. Sumner to realize that a typical corporate practice was not the right fit for her or her family. After working in an understaffed clinic and finding herself sitting in her car, dreading the idea of going into work, she knew there had to be something different.   She created her own Direct Primary Care practice and set her family free from the bonds of corporate practice. She’s also an Amazon best-selling author and her book, Fill Your Cup, is all about properly caring for yourself first. Because it’s true, “you cannot pour from an empty cup.”   The change from corporate to direct has helped her keep a modicum of sanity in these crazy pandemic times, and has helped her be more present with her family. But her biggest reason for creating a DPC is that she is able to serve her patients and her community in a way that creates lasting health.    She is a wellness strategist and is determined to get to the root cause of illness rather than prescribing medication after medication that impedes health. Listen and learn more about prioritizing your happiness for the benefit of others.   “You cannot pour from an empty cup. It’s really tough for you to give out to other people if you’re not feeding and replenishing and nourishing yourself.” Dr. Felecia Sumner    In this episode: [00:29] Wake up call my friend! [01:12] Welcome Dr. Felecia Sumner to share the magic she’s doing in the world. [03:03] Why she picked prioritizing happiness as her topic.

224: Non-Conformity with Doctors Rachael Holliday and Lindsay Moore-Ostby

Have you ever heard of Direct Primary Care providers? Neither had doctors Rachael Holliday and Lindsay Moore-Ostby, but when they did it changed their lives. Listen as they share their stories of burnout and how finding DPC has helped them take back their careers.   Lindsay and Rachael worked together in their previous practice. Unfortunately however they were at the mercy of their shareholders and the powers that be in their billing and patient care practices. (As are most of us right?)   They realized very early on that the way medicine and practice were being done was what was causing their burnout but they had no clue how to get out of it. At their lowest they’d both recognized why physicians often take their lives. Neither of them truly considered it for themselves, but even recognizing why it was appealing scared them both.    Later they found out about DPC and thought it was too good to be true. It wasn’t until they met other doctors doing the same thing that they realized this new method of patient care could work for them.    They buckled down and found a way to create their own DPC clinic and are now happier than ever. They can doctor their patients the way they want to. They can answer their own phones and really make connections with their patients. Both Lindsay and Rachael have now realized their original goal in pursuing medicine. To better the lives and health of others.   This was an amazing conversation with two brilliant primary care physicians. If you’ve been looking for a way out without leaving the dream of doctoring, you need to hear this. If you’d like to learn more, don’t be afraid to reach out and see how you too can make DPC work for you.   “As doctors we’re really good at jumping through hoops. We spent decades...learning how to play the game. How to get the grade. How to do what you have to do just to get to the next stage.” Dr. Lindsay Moore-Ostby   In this episode: [00:29] Welcome back friends! [01:57] I’m so excited to welcome Rachael and Lindsay to chat about nonconformity.  [05:11] Learn more about their “Matrix” moment. [07:46] Rachael shares more about their journey toward creating a better system. [10:36] Lindsay digs deep into one of her worst burnout experiences. [13:43] How the physician patient relationship started to break down. [15:39] They’ve unplugged the Matrix and are now direct primary care doctors. Learn more.  [18:10] Why switching to DPC has been amazing for their health and happiness.  [21:22] It’s not just primary care that’s leaving the system.  [23:52] Primary care doesn’t have to be astronomically expensive.  [25:53] DPC is an amazing nonconforming physician led movement to take back medicine.

223: Non-Toxic with Dr. Aly Cohen

As a rheumatologist who has seen an increase in autoimmune disorders and childhood diseases and disorders, what are you to think when your dog comes down with autoimmune hepatitis? You begin to research what could have caused this disorder.    For Dr. Aly Cohen this situation led her down a rabbit hole of research that she realized was related to her work in rheumatology. She has since helped to write multiple books on toxicology and the prevalence of the chemicals we use in exacerbating and causing autoimmune disorders.    Her work has connected her with some of the biggest names in toxicology and she is now on a mission to help others understand how the chemicals we use affect our bodies. Toxic load is real. Dr. Cohen is helping people heal from it.   She is sharing the full story of how she found toxicology and why she is now a firm believer in living as non-toxic a life as possible. It all starts with better understanding the ways in which our government has failed the consumer by protecting manufacturers.    Listen in to learn more about the toxic world we live in and how you can better protect yourself and your family.   “I was unveiling an enormous amount of information about how we lack oversight and regulation for the majority of chemicals that are, in, on and around us.” Dr. Aly Cohen   In this episode: [01:55] Welcome to the show, Dr. Aly Cohen!

222: Remembering Who We Are with Dr. Jessica Wei

Have you ever felt as if your worth is solely equated by your achievements? That you’re only as good as the work you do and the people you help? You’re not the only one. Most physicians feel that way, but that feeling is not the truth. Jessie Wei joins me to chat about what it means to remember who you are, not what you’ve done.    Jessie is a former OB-Gyn who has spent her career helping women to bring life into this world. Her focus and dedication made her the number one person to call in life threatening emergencies, but what it was doing to her mental health was terrible.    After battling severe depression and anxiety and realizing that medications were simply making her symptoms worse, she started to research what it means to be healthy. She is now registered as a Functional Medicine doctor and is helping others find the root cause of their health issues.    Listen as she shares her story and why changing her mindset of worth from achievement to simply being here has changed her life. You are not worthy because of any external action, you are worthy because you are here.    If you’re ready to Be Happy Now, then join us at this month’s Masterclass and learn all the things about boundaries. Also check out Jessie’s new book that’s releasing this winter, Physician Care For Thyself Pre-Order.   “Jessie Wei is worthy just because Jessie Wei is Jessie Wei, not because she is useful, not because she is a physician, not because she is a mother, but because she is a human being like everyone else.” Dr. Jessica Wei   In this episode: [02:32] Welcome to the show, Dr. Jessica Wei!

221: Career Transformation with Dr. Jawaria Suhail

There is no one right path for physicians in medicine. The medical field is made up of so many more puzzle pieces than simply being a clinician and the field overall benefits when doctors choose to take on non-clinical careers. No one knows this better than Dr. Jawaria Suhail.    She was born in Pakistan and raised in Saudi Arabia with only one professional path available to her. She was going to become a doctor. She was sent to boarding school with a very tiny support system. Later she was put through an arranged marriage and then moved to the states.    Through this time she also had twin boys and started to look for medical careers here in the United States. It wasn’t until she was going through her divorce and realized that she was truly depressed that she knew she needed a change. Due to the stigma around mental health in relation to practicing physicians she turned to coaching.    She is now a medical director for an insurance company, a life coach, and she handles telemedicine and home visits. She is truly the queen of career transitions and she’s made them all with grace and passion.    Listen as she shares her journey and why she’s so extremely happy with her career transitions and her life. She has such an inspirational story that you won’t want to miss it.   “I don’t have to stay in this story anymore, I am not alone in this anymore and I am not the only woman who feels this way.” Dr. Jawaria Suhail   In this episode: [01:25] Welcome to the show, Dr. Suhail!

220: Transitions with Dr. Beverly Joyce

Menopause is more than hot flashes and night sweats. It affects every woman differently and can have symptoms that range from anxiety to memory loss to depression. Why is it that women physicians who are making this transition know very little about the condition?    Dr. Beverly Joyce has studied female anatomy her entire medical career. She has been in gynecology and obstetrics for many years but it wasn’t until she too was going through menopause that she realized how little even she knew about it.    In fact, rather than believing she was going through menopause she truly believed she had dementia and was falling into the grips of alzheimers.

We also discuss the transitions that have impacted her life and how she became the Menopause coach!    If things have been feeling off and you’re within that age range, it may be time to see if you are going through this transition as well.

218: Depression vs Burnout with Dr. Michelle Curtin

Mental health is one of the most important areas of our overall health, especially for physicians. But the stigma surrounding mental health has many doctors hiding behind burnout rather than find a solution to the underlying problem. While that may not be all of us, it certainly is many.   Dr. Michelle Curtin is passionate about helping young clinicians to understand the difference and to get their life and careers back on track from the beginning. Listen as she shares how you can keep a clear gauge on your feelings and emotions around your job and how to pull back.    Michelle credits her ability to move and shift as she’s changed positions for helping her to build the support system that’s kept her grounded. She came out of residency completely burned out and she realized it was due to the fact that she’d left her friendships and relationships behind. Once she found them again, she experienced a huge change in her mindset.    What is most concerning to both Dr. Michelle and myself is the number of people who associate the symptoms of depression with burnout. She recently gave a talk to medical students about the prevalence of pediatric depression and the questions she received all had to do with burnout.   There is a difference between burnout and depression. While one may lead to the other and vice versa, they require very different types of treatment. If you’ve been struggling with the difference between the two, then this is an episode you won’t want to miss.    In this episode: [01:28] Welcome to the podcast, Dr. Curtin! [01:43] Hear about her background and what she is doing now. [02:58] How she found her way as a young clinician. [05:14] Errin shares a cool homework assignment she gives her coaching clients. [09:19] Learn more about the ebbs and flows of Dr. Curtin’s journey in medicine. [11:47] Why she did a recent medical student talk on depression.

216: Black Beauty with J.N.C (Necessary with Nena Wallace & Dr. Candice Williams)

You are beautiful just the way you are. These are not words that women of color hear very often in popular culture and many times not even within their own culture. Nena Wallace, Candice Williams, and Jasmine Colbert created the Black Beauty Project and even created and produced their own single, also called Black Beauty.  It all started as a dream. Candice fell asleep one night while thinking about all of the issues with the world today. Specifically, what led to the deaths of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor (as well as all of the others) and as she dreamed she felt as if God was there, telling her, “Black people are beautiful. You ARE beautiful.”  She woke up and immediately started writing the song. All three of these amazing women have been involved in music in the past but none were prepared for what was to come. As they dug deeper into the message that they were revealing with their song, they realized this was a movement.  They created the Black Beauty Project together and now seek to elevate a positive message of acceptance and love for all men and women of color. You are no less due to the color of your skin and these three women are here to tell you just that. “As Black women they are standing up to declare the beauty and dignity of Black people everywhere.” Click here to listen to their song and support this wonderful message.   In this episode: [01:47] Welcome to the podcast, Nena and Candice!

215: Well-Being with Brenda Thompson

Why are physicians much more likely to experience burnout than other professions? Brenda Thompson has worked in various roles throughout her experience in Graduate Medical Education. Everything from accreditation specialist to GME manager to wellness and transition trainer. She’s the first to tell you that the reason we experience burnout is the systemic disregard for physicians as human beings. These days residents are no longer putting their lives on hold to make it through all the requirements needed to become doctors. They’re getting married, having children, and realizing that there is nothing wrong with living their lives. But the medical profession has not caught up. Instead, these residents are facing endless 80hr weeks, ongoing education, homes, families, and all the stresses inherent to practicing in their field. Mind you, their field may or may not be what they’re passionate about if they were improperly matched.  Brenda may not be a doctor, but she has seen what doctors go through and has been working on the inside to try and change the system.  This conversation was an amazing deep-dive into various facets of the typical physician’s life both personally and professionally and why things need to change. There’s no better place to start than with physician education. Listen in and learn ways that you can start making a difference in your organization.   In this episode: [01:29] Brenda shares a little about herself and her job. [03:43] Listen as Brenda speaks about the struggle ACGME is having around wellness. [07:23] Why the rules for training physicians need to change with the times.

214: Powerful with Sabrina Runbeck

Why do we push ourselves beyond what a normal human being can stand? Why do we work and work regardless of the state of our own mental and physical health? Because we’re doctors. Because we already have all the medical knowledge so we must know better right? Wrong! Pushing ourselves to try and be superhuman is not what makes us powerful. Instead rebooting your mental immunity, eliminating saboteurs, and creating momentum with your new habits is how to take back your power. Listen as Sabrina shares an exercise you can use to take mini-vacations and allow your brain to rest and re-energize. We have to reduce our internal stress levels or we are all going to be riddled with diseases at extremely early ages. If you’re not taking care of yourself then you cannot show up for the people who are relying on you.

You’ve got your patients, your family, continuing education, insurance debates… obviously I could keep talking, but how do you move past the overwhelm and find joy in life again? Dr. Michelle Chestovich found herself asking these exact same questions and after listening to a podcast episode had an epiphany. The way you feel about your life is solely in your hands. If you no longer want to feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders, then stop feeling like you need to take that weight on. So much of our overwhelm and anxiety stems from our need to control every facet of our lives, when really, we have no control! You can only adjust how you perceive and react to various situations. This conversation was perfect for the year that we’re having what with the pandemic and all the social changes that are happening. Overwhelm seems to be on everyone’s minds, but wouldn’t feel amazing to realize that you don’t have to stay there? Listen in to hear how Dr. Chestovich overcame her overwhelm and how she’s helping other women do the same. Be the creator of your own story and stop allowing your mind to keep you from enjoying all there is in life.   In this episode: [02:41] Dr. Chestovich shares her word and why she chose it for this episode. [05:20] The phrase that was the catalyst for change in her life. [07:20] She realized that she was trying to control everything around her. [08:44] How she’s now helping women who are going through the same things. [12:29] Why she felt like she was on a treadmill going nowhere. [13:23] How you can change your life. [14:40] Be the creator of your own story. [17:50] Errin shares some final thoughts.   “I don’t have to live in this state of overwhelm anymore, I’m creating that myself.” Dr. Michelle Chestovich    Find Dr. Michelle Chestovich West St. Paul - Entira Family Clinic LinkedIn | Facebook | Instagram   3 WAYS TO GET INCREDIBLE HELP AT LOW-COST!!!

212: Allies with Dr. Shika Dooley

Being a female physician comes with a slew of problems that has nothing to do with doctoring. Being a female physician of color is a whole other conversation. Dr. Shika Dooley joins me to start that conversation and I invite you to continue it. For Dr. Dooley, and all the physicians just like her, there is not much more they can do on their own to bring awareness to their plight. They’ve had protests. They’ve kneeled. They’ve started the conversation, but as she says, it’s now up to us to carry the torch. She founded the Thrive Together Conference for physicians and aspiring-physicians of color to have a safe space to share their stories. She encourages white physicians to join them so that they too can hear the stories and become proponents of the cause.  This is why she chose the word Allies for this conversation. She needs other women to stand up and help carry the banner of change for them. I am happy to be her ally and I invite you to do the same. Doctor Me First is giving away 5 seats for the Thrive Together Conference. If you’re interested in becoming an ally yourself, email me and join the conference.     “The only way that you can know what other people are doing is by hearing their story.” Dr. Shika Dooley     In this episode: [02:23] Welcome to the show, Dr. Dooley! [02:59] Dr. Dooley shares what she is passionate about. [03:45] Listen as Dr. Dooley shares the background for forming the Thrive Together Conference.

211: Burnout Climb-Out with Dr. Brian Young

When you have as impactful a conversation as this one, it doesn’t matter if the person is male or female; it must be shared. Which is why I’m doing another Patreon exclusive episode. Listen as Dr. Brian Young shares his journey with burnout, and if you want to hear the entire story, stop on over and check out the Patreon group. Dr. Young struggled with burnout before it even had a name. He came out of a surgical residency feeling completely overwhelmed and questioning whether he wanted to even be a doctor. There were some twists and turns from there but he ended up working as a doctor in the E.R. and his burnout intensified from there.  Since this was before burnout was a recognized problem in the medical community, Dr. Young didn’t know where to turn to get help, so he turned to the bottle. He began drinking at all times during the day and night and was even going to work under the influence.  When someone smelled alcohol on him, the hospital required that he attend AA or he would lose his license. Listen in to hear all about his story and why being caught under the influence at work ended up being one of the best things that ever happened to him. He’s doing great work these days and is still working in the medical field, but no longer as a doctor. Instead, he’s making doctor’s lives easier through informatics.  You truly won’t want to miss the end of this conversation, so click here and get your butt in the Patreon group!   “I realized I had tools and skills, but I needed to figure out how to use them in a different context.” Dr. Brian Young   In this episode: [02:01] It’s great to have you on the show, Dr. Young! [02:13] Dr. Young shares his background and what he’s doing now. [03:44] Listen as Dr. Young shares what he means by burnout climb-out. [05:28] Dr. Young discusses when he realized he was experiencing burnout. [06:57] He came to the breaking point in 2000 and went into recovery for alcoholism. [09:01] Dr. Young speaks about his mindset once he was finished with recovery. [11:30] Listen as Dr. Young shares what helped him find his way forward.

210: Resentment with Caitlin Donovan

Sometimes we need to go fringe to get out of our heads. Caitlin Donovan uses Chinese medicine to help her clients get out of the pit of depression and burnout. She has traveled a windy path to find her current career. We chat about a variety of topics that all come back to the overall theme, we all heal differently. Do what’s right for you! As Caitlin says, there is still a bit of magic in this world. We have to harness it and help each other see more of it. She herself is truly a piece of that magic. Using Chinese medicine and acupuncture, she has seen people completely transform their lives.  But at the heart of it all is the beauty of the placebo effect. In all medicine, alternative or traditional, 30% of the healing process stems from the placebo. What does that mean? Taking the time and making the space for yourself to heal is just as important as which methods you use.  Caitlin shares a story about a man in China who had a massive stroke. They had to remove part of his skull because the blood clot was so large and he could no longer walk. Through intense acupuncture treatment, he was back on his feet within 30 days. In the United States, he would have been wheelchair-bound.  So, do you believe in the magic behind healing? Listen in to hear all about Caitlin’s studies and stories and then take a minute to download her resentment journal. Everyone talks about practicing gratitude, but what if the first step is releasing resentment?    “Emotions are fine. It’s ignoring the emotions that are problematic.” Caitlin Donovan   In this episode: [02:01] It’s great to have you back on the show, Caitlin! [02:30] Caitlin shares what has changed in the last year and what she’s doing now. [05:36] Errin discusses the Resentment Journal and how much she likes it.

209: Pediatric Complexity & COVID with Dr. Stella Evans

There are so many aspects to complex pediatric care that most doctors tend to shy away from the practice. Caring for the most innocent of lives takes a toll no matter who you are or what your motivation. This became even more true when Dr. Stella Evans had her son.  She was drawn to complex pediatrics for many reasons but when she had her son she realized that she needed to help support other parents facing the same problems as herself.  She has worked to make sure that she approaches every parent with empathy and care. Because that’s exactly what she needed herself when it was her own son.  Her work has become even more complex in the face of Covid-19. Her son was meant to graduate this year and he was going to attend an amazing transitional school that would help prepare him for life in college. However, he is not able to wear a mask for long periods of time and therefore cannot ride public transportation. Listen as we chat about various facets of complex pediatrics and why this population and those that support them have been hit hard by the pandemic. Dr. Stella is a beacon of hope during this time, and this conversation was truly amazing. You won’t want to miss it.   “It takes strength to show when you are hurting and to reach out for help.” Dr. Stella Evans   In this episode: [01:49] Welcome Dr. Stella Evans to the show! [02:31] Dr. Stella shares her background and the practice she specializes in. [04:32] How she started in complex pediatric care.

208: Married To An Alpha Female

Back by popular demand… Our Married to an Alpha Female episode! Craig and I sat down to chat about everything from back to school, the things he doesn’t know, what’s happening on the farm and why farmer suicide is on the rise. I won’t lie, it was late, I was tired, and we had a fairly jumpy conversation but you’re getting a great inside look at what it means to be in the Weisman household. The kids and I have been having some awesome conversations as well and we chat all about that too. We also got some new barstools! Yay! New furniture. Most importantly, Craig had no idea that there is a Patreon group, that we have different episodes there, that the music is different and that for some reason my book has stalled out in publication. We’ve chalked it up to us both being crazy busy working, but I think I’m liking this new segment. Listen in for your monthly dose of what is going on behind the scenes with the Weisman’s and let us know if there are any conversations you’d prefer to have a non-doctor, male voice attached to!   In this episode: [01:48] Welcome back to the show! [01:56] The kids are back to school and it’s been a bit crazy. [03:54] Suddenly realizing that I place less emphasis on my past achievements than I used to. [07:30] Because those achievements aren’t what will matter when I get to the end. [08:38] The boys and I had some fun conversation this week! [09:29] New Segment: Things Craig Doesn’t Know. [12:27] What’s happening Down On The Farm? [20:28] There are so many parallels between our two worlds. [22:28] Why is farmer suicide on the rise right now?

207: The Why with Drs. Jill Wener & Marjorie Stiegler

The friends you make in medical school are friends for life. Very few people know what that experience entails. For doctors Jill Wener and Marjorie Stiegler their friendship has solidified into a business partnership as well. Both of them were bitten early on with the entrepreneurial bug and wanted to create more out of the careers that they were focused on. They were still fulfilled but they knew there was more to be done. They put together TransforMD after experiencing different life events that made them pause and re-evaluate their life path. TransforMD is a community built for women physicians who love their practice but know that the traditional path is not for them. They host retreats and conferences showcasing non-traditional paths that women in medicine can take with their careers. Both Jill and Marjorie have hearts for service and want to impact so many others. This is their way of doing that. It all comes back to their “why.” They want to spread the message that your unique gifts are what elevate your work and your message. You just have to find them. But you don’t have to do it alone. We are all in the same boat, we just have different roles to play in elevating women physicians across the globe. Listen as we talk about life, love, and our passion for helping others. What dreams have you placed on the back burner? Now’s the time to bring them forward.   In this episode: [01:38] Welcome to the show, Dr. Wener & Dr. Stiegler!

Just because others think your way is wrong, doesn’t mean that’s true.

205: Chrysalis with Dr. Melinda Toney

Understanding that our growth and development over time has a huge impact on our health is one of the key components of Dr. Toney’s programs. Listen as we discuss how breath work impacts health and how you can begin to shift your health focus into a more holistic view.

201: Self Compassion with Dr. Nerissa Bauer

Your ability to feel compassion for yourself is imperative. Why? Because no one else is meant to take care of you but… YOU! If you don’t have compassion for yourself, who else will? Dr. Nerissa Bauer is here to chat about burnout and how to circumvent this horrible fate. You have to love yourself enough to let other people help you. Period. The only way to grow and thrive in any business is to understand what you can and can’t do and then to delegate those can’ts. We are in this age of Covid so we really have to pick and choose what we minted to be passionate about and first and foremost we need to be passionate about self-compassion. Give yourself the grace to succeed or fail during this time. So many of us are working at home with children while trying to support patients. You need to give yourself grace. Depending on your child’s age, they may have every right to help you make decisions within the family. Stop taking everything on your shoulders. Let your children help make decisions and establish themselves as change-makers (with supervision.) We are all working on this new dynamic. Don’t succumb to the negative thoughts that tell you, you aren’t enough.

199: Stigma of Mental Health with Dr. Lynette Charity

We’re doctors. We should be the first to realize and understand that we’re dealing with mental health issues and how to treat them right? Wrong. Many times we are struggling with things but because there is no safe space to talk about them, our issues become worse rather than better.   Dr. Lynette Charity has been there and she’s not going back. She grew up in the segregated south, watched a car hit and killed her sister, dealt with bullying and posturing, and through it all made her dream of becoming a doctor come true. Why then did she find herself at 60 years old feeling like she’d missed something?   She struggled with depression and anxiety given her history and one day felt like it was all too much. The voices in her head were telling her that she wasn’t enough. Not a  good enough doctor, parent, wife, daughter, etc., and that she should just end her own pain.   Thankfully her husband found her before she could do anything that would have taken her from this world, but even after that episode, she was scared to continue treatment. There is a stigma around mental health, not just in the medical field, but in general.   Once you’ve been labeled as mentally unfit, you never go back to being “normal.” Listen as Dr. Charity and I discuss her story and why comedy has become the light in her world. She is an amazing storyteller and has a powerful message to share.   If you’ve felt the niggling of depression or burn out, seek help. Don’t stay in a place of darkness out of fear!   In this episode: [01:26] Welcome back to the show, Dr. Charity! [02:06] Dr. Charity shares her background in healthcare and why she got fired. [06:43] Listen, as Dr. Charity speaks about wanting to be a stand-up comedian and how her love of humor got her where she is today. [08:02] Dr. Charity discusses getting a coach, and the coach suggested that she become a speaker and add humor. [12:10] Dr. Charity speaks on physician burnout, depression, and suicide. [14:29] A doctor feels like they need to be perfect, and they can't talk about being depressed or burned out. [16:30] Dr. Charity discusses a ted talk she did called Heal the Healers; it was about her journey of getting psychiatric help. [19:05] Errin shares that this is not an unusual story. You are not alone. [20:12] Listen, as Dr. Charity speaks about when she realized she needed to get help. [25:02] Dr. Charity shares that she had voices telling her she wasn't a good doctor or mother and that she should die, and she attempted suicide. [30:34] Listen as Dr. Charity gives advice and says you can't help anyone until you help yourself first. [32:11] Dr. Charity shares that she is reinventing herself and will start coaching people who want to become speakers. [33:44] Thank you so much for being on the show!

198: Childhood Trauma with Dr. Lulu

An epidemic of extreme proportions has hit the world, and it is not Covid-19. The rate of childhood suicide is skyrocketing and the reason behind it is undiagnosed trauma per Dr. Lulu. Depression is not the only reason someone may fall into thoughts of suicide, but trauma is the one common link.   Suicide claims the life of one person every 20 seconds. Why? Is it because of the increase of childhood trauma through events like divorce, death, bullying both in person and electronically? The instances of potential trauma have increased as the world becomes a smaller and smaller place.   This increase in the number of children having thoughts of suicide in the face of trauma means that trauma-informed care is essential in pediatrics. Rather than asking a child or their parents about what is wrong, ask what has happened to them.   A child of divorce is more likely to commit suicide. A child who has been abused is more likely to commit suicide. A child who feels unwanted, neglected, or abandoned is more likely to commit suicide. We need to start asking the right questions at the right time and realize that the words you hear aren’t always the emotions being felt.   Dr. Lulu shares her own incredible story and what happened that made her want to dig deeper into this epidemic. She is now an in-demand speaker sharing this message all over the world as well as sharing her knowledge in her books. Listen as Dr. Lulu and I discuss the increase in childhood suicide and what we as physicians can and should be doing to help.   In this episode: [01:52] Welcome back to the show, Dr. Lulu! [02:04] Dr. Lulu shares her background when she first met Errin and how she pivoted her career. [05:06] Dr. Lulu discusses suicide in children and that the roots of suicide being trama. [06:52] Dr. Lulu asks if mental illness is the reason for suicide why is the use of antidepressants and anti-anxiety medicine is going up but so are suicides? [08:15] Covid-19 doesn’t kill someone every 20 seconds, but suicide does. [10:03] People don’t want to think kids can be traumatized enough to commit suicide. [11:52] Have you ever asked yourself if the world would be better off with you dead? [12:54] Suicide is a series of traumatic events. You can’t give a person a pill for that. [14:49] Listen, as Dr. Lulu describes what a trauma-informed provider means to her. [19:41] Errin tells her residents, I don’t care where they come from or where they are going, in this moment, we need them to feel safe. [20:40] The question isn’t what’s wrong with you; it’s what has happened to you. [23:13] Dr. Lulu shares her books available now on Amazon. [29:26] Errin speaks about having conversations with her children about racism while watching Dr. Lulu’s videos she did on her book. [30:16] Thank you so much for being on the show again!

197: Effective Marketing with Dr. Dena George

What do you do when you realize you love your job but it’s no longer your passion? Find another passion. For Dr. Dena George she found a love of marketing through storytelling. Most physicians don’t know how to go about sharing their practice and their message with the world, but Dena does.   Dr. George now works part-time as a physician, a coach, and a marketing strategist using the StoryBrand formula. She loves to help physicians and those in the field of medicine to find the stories that will resonate with their clients and customers. She added in coaching when she realized how many of us struggle with having the confidence to do and be our best.   The StoryBrand formula has helped her to build a business that she loves.

196: Solocast – Frequently Asked Questions About the Burntout to Badass Course

What would it mean to you to no longer feel like you are on the brink of collapse? How would it feel to wake up each morning feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to conquer the world? It would be amazing right? If you’re at or nearing burn out, then the only thing you’ll be feeling is exhausted, overwhelmed, and ready to quit. After experiencing my own form of burn out, I vowed to help my fellow medical professionals get off the hustle bus and onto the path of healing. Which is when I started coaching, but coaching is not feasible for everyone… it’s true. It’s taken me months, but I’ve finally put together a beautiful course to help you find your balance and stave off burn out. Between me and the wonderful team that I’ve employed to help make it happen you will be well taken care of. Listen in to learn more about the course through the frequently asked questions I keep getting. But if you’re thinking to yourself, “I just don’t have the money.” I have a question to ask you… how much money would you pay to never feel burned out again? How much money would you pay to tap into a wealth of energy and passion that you forgot existed? You have the money… but do you have the will and the drive to do the work and leave burn out behind forever?   In this episode: [01:43] Ever wondered how many medical professionals experience burn out at any one time? [02:28] Well… Errin’s got the remedy! Her course Burned Out to Badass. [03:41] The number one question Errin gets - What are we going to do and what am I going to learn in this course? [06:56] What if you can’t make time for the live calls? [07:42] Third most common question is can we have a different day and time? [08:53] What if I can’t afford this? [10:12] The final most asked questions are - What if I don’t know what I want to do now, what if I don’t know what kind of job I want to do next or what if I don’t even know what that best life is?

195: Solocast – Burntout to Badass

The course is almost ready! In case you haven’t been following me, you know, since forever, I created a course! Why?

I created the course as a way for all of my wonderful followers to have access to me no matter where they’re at with finances. However, if you need more individual attention, you’ll have access to yours truly at a discounted rate! Here’s the thing, none of us have time to be burnt out and miserable. If you’re ready to take the steps necessary to start healing and growing, then I want to help you do it. No matter where you’re at! If you want to learn more about the course then take a minute and listen as I share how this course came about and what you can expect to find.   In this episode: [01:32] Errin shares why she decided to do an online course on burnout and how everything progressed. [04:51] When COVID hit, everything fell apart while creating the course. [06:09] Does asking for help make you feel weak? [06:49] Once Errin asked for help, the course was completed within three weeks. [08:05] Errin shares her ‘why’ for creating the course.

193: Non-Clinical Careers with Dr. Sylvie Stacy

There you are living your life-long dream of becoming a doctor when you look up one day and realize that this was not what you thought it would be. Maybe you love the science. Maybe you love the work. Maybe you love everything except actually practicing medicine. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a medical career that has nothing to do with practicing medicine. Many medical students realize quickly that while they love medicine, they hate patient interaction and the rounds of true clinical care. Newsflash, people with medical degrees are a necessity in many organizations and not all of them are practicing in offices or hospitals. Dr. Sylvie Stacy struggled through her first years of residency because she realized that while she loved medicine, she knew regular clinical practice wasn’t for her. She developed a quiz to help other practitioners determine if perhaps other avenues would be appropriate for their skills and through her research realized that there were no solid resources outlining other career paths. So she wrote her own. Listen in to learn more about her story and how you too can find joy in your work again.   “Hey, I’m wired a little differently, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong or broken.” Errin Weisman   In this episode: [01:35] Welcome to the show, Dr. Stacy! [02:05] Dr. Stacy shares her medical background and the work she has done. [04:03] Listen as Dr. Stacy speaks about what led her to step out and start doing non-clinical work. [07:45] Do you know what your superpowers are? [08:37] Dr. Stacy discusses what motivated her to write the book. [10:09] Dr. Stacy believes that physicians stay as clinicians throughout their entire careers because they think that is expected of them. [11:53] Errin shares her husband's struggle when he wanted to step away from education. [14:10] Dr. Stacy says there is a lot of peer pressure in a clinical setting and it can get negative if you talk about leaving clinical medicine. [16:38] Dr. Stacy shares about her book, what it’s about, and where you can get it. [19:13] Thank you so much for coming on the podcast, Dr. Stacy. [20:03] Errin gives us her kick of encouragement.

Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow— You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor’s cup, And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out— The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit— It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
