"There has been a growing wave of entrepreneurial physicians finding joy and value in starting consulting and coaching businesses. Many use their expertise to work with physicians exclusively. Our company has been excited to play a part in better spotlighting these businesses. Today it is now even easier to find doctors who can give you guidance on everything from running your own practice more efficiently, build a better relationship with your spouse, to negotiating your next job contract.

We are all aware of the tired refrain that 'physicians are bad at business.' It is time to retire that phrase. Business has not been our primary focus, and perhaps the state of medicine may result from that.

So if given a choice, consider supporting more physician-owned businesses. If you have a problem that needs solving, there may be a colleague out there who has already figured it out and can help."

Michael Woo-Ming is a physician entrepreneur.
