Interview with Dr. Cory S. Fawcett
Good morning guys - Recently, I have been able to interview some of the very best MD coaches - when it comes to physician engagement, burnout, career transitions, & leading a more purposeful-balanced life.
Dr. Fawcett is an award-winning author, speaker, entrepreneur, coach, and "repurposed" (in his own words) surgeon.
He has written 3 "Dr.'s Guide To" books including:
#1 Starting Your Practice Right
#2 Eliminating Debt, &
#3 Smart Career Alternatives & Retirement.
Dr. Fawcett's goal is to help physicians become financially-free so that they can live the life of their dreams - i.e. "David Ramsey for Physicians".
Dr. Fawcett has graciously donated his time answering a few questions for fellow blog readers.
1.What prompted you to pivot from practicing medicine & go into coaching.
I was ready to retire from medicine but wanted to still have a purpose. So I found a new purpose for the second half of my life. I told my story in my 3rd book
2.Any pitfalls, or pieces of advice that you would recommend to those undergoing career transitions.
Make sure you are clear about your "why." When you are second guessing yourself later, you will need this answer. I spend a whole chapter on this in book 3.
3.Who is your target audience?
Physicians who want to lead a better life and become debt free.
4.What is the #1 fear, frustration that your clients express to you.
Fear that they will not be able to retire with the lifestyle they want.
5.What is the #1 thing that your clients are pursuing.
Getting their finances in order to become debt free and retire when they want.
6.What is the #1 question that you get asked by your clients.
Should I invest or pay off my debts first.
Thank you, Dr. Fawcett.
