Why would anyone leave a position at Mayo Clinic to do something new? Does that actually happen in real life? That's exactly what Dr. Jagi Gill did when he joined Boston Scientific and later launched and sold a sports medicine company. Today he's part of the leadership team of Acumed and is improving patients' lives by combining medicine, business, and technology.
In today's episode, you get to hear about Jagi's fascinating career path and about what it's really like to be an entrepreneur. He's convinced that entrepreneurship is not for everyone and helps you know if it might be a good fit for you and your personality .
He warns that while the highs are high, the lows are low. The entrepreneurial path is riddled with self-doubt. He discusses how to deal with the self-doubt, how to seek genuine support, and how to ignore the naysayers.
Dr. Gill and I also discuss the importance of finding what brings you joy, why having a supportive community is critical for entrepreneurs, and how to avoid burnout.
