"You have absolute control over but one thing--your thoughts. This divine prerogative is the sole means by which you may control your destiny. If you fail to control your mind, you will control nothing else. Your mind is your spiritual estate. What you hold in your mind today will shape your experiences of tomorrow."

           Second Career CV:
(2000 to present)

“Information Marketing”

Summary: Intensive entrepreneurial drive to impact the world of medicine in areas that have been neglected both academically and personally by medical schools and physicians themselves. The two highly significant areas that are now contributing to the loss of doctors, downgrading of the profession, and are likely to continue to push our profession into socialized medicine under governmental
control are:

  1. No business knowledge: Physicians and other doctors have never been taught business principles nor how to implement proven business systems into their medical practice businesses.
     
  2. No marketing knowledge: Physicians have no education concerning the value of marketing to medical practice or any business nor any knowledge about how to learn and implement marketing strategies into their medical businesses.

Education in business and marketing:

  1. Continuous self-education in business and marketing since 2002.
  2. Business and marketing seminars, teleseminars, and live seminars.
  3. Mentoring, advice, and support by business and marketing experts.
  4. Marketing and business newsletters published by these experts.
  5. Resources made available by experts from books, CDs, video, podcasting, email, and other teaching parameters like masterminding.

Technology Education Support:

    1. Computer and Internet expertise
    2. Copywriting training
    3. Blog education and use
    4. Website mastering
    5. Optimization for search engines
    6. Keyword expertise
    7. Marketing tactics and strategies
    8. Business systems
    9. Graphics and design use
    10. Generation of list building, ideas, and goals
    11. Time management
    12. Selecting targets
