How I Went From A Hospital-Employed Physician to An Online Entrepreneur
I built my first business when I was eight. I wanted to go to the local fair and ride on tons of rides, but I grew up in a small town in Maine,USA and I knew my family could not afford the “extras.”
Ever since I can remember, I refused to take “no” for an answer. Even at a young age, I knew there was always a solution to my problems, I just needed to figure out how to find it.
To raise money for the fair, we started “Ali and Lynette’s Lemonade Business.” We scavenged both our houses for paper-cups, a pitcher and left over lemonade packets in the back of our cupboards. We took our lemonade set-up and our home-made signs and stood on the busiest corner of our town at 5pm each Monday through Friday.
I think we made more money on that business than we could possibly spend all Summer on cotton candy, balloon-dart games and twirling rides at the fair.
I have always loved strategizing win-win situations. People leaving work were hot and thirsty on that busy corner of my town. I gave them lemonade and they supported my fun at the fair.
Looking back, it only makes sense why I became restless when, in 2008, I went from owning my own Pediatric Primary Care Practice to becoming a Hospital Employee. My “creative-entrepreneur-side” became unfulfilled.
Even though I didn’t love working for someone else, being a Hospital Employee satisfied my family’s need for me to have a reliable schedule and decent income. So I continued full- time while I wrote books for pleasure and held lectures on the side. I never gave up the desire to create a growing business that “Changes The World,” I just had no clue how to launch it.
In 2017, stress kicked in and I developed visual loss with my migraines. I had to cut back work at the hospital. With less work, my migraines got better, but my family needed the income. I knew going back to full time employment while trying to write and lecture on the side would be too much again and my migraines would come back.
So I started searching online for alternate income solutions…and I found one.
Six Figure Mentors provided a digital education I now use to share my Lectures, Webinars and Ebooks with the World, as well as their step-by-step formatted affiliate program I use to promote the company I love and almost immediately supplement my income so I can stay part-time at the hospital.
I found the win-win solution I was looking for and now I help others do the same.
