Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

Highlights from 2019 and Plans for the Pharmapreneur Community in 2020

by | Dec 12, 2019 | Consulting Pharmacist Education

Things are in full swing for the holidays and I hope 2019 has been a fantastic year for you!

I enjoy looking back and celebrating past accomplishments while also putting together my plans and goals for the following year.

Here’s a few highlights from 2019:

As a clinical pharmacist, you may be thinking about making the jump from your 9-5 to being an entrepreneur — especially with a new year (and new beginnings) around the corner. 

If you are, I have one piece of advice: don’t jump in over your head.

You can snuff out even the most promising budding business by taking too “healthy” a salary right away.

I saw this question in one of my pharmacist groups today: “How do I transition out of retail pharmacy and still make a six-figure salary?” 

My answer: do the “un-fun” things first.

Sacrifice time by building a side business in your area of interest.

Whatever income you bring in during the first few years should be mostly reinvested into: 1) the business 2) your financial health 

Focusing solely on getting to “six figures” in business is a goal, but one that doesn’t usually happen overnight.

Stay in your role while building your side business, until you are ready financially, emotionally and mentally to transition out and into entrepreneurship.

If you are ready to learn more about how to navigate that transition, join us on Jan. 5 for our LIVE webinar exploring the three predictions for pharmacy practice from 2020 to 2030:
