Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

How are you preparing yourself for career opportunities in 2022?

After setting the bar high with my Big Vision, I still couldn’t visualize how to move forward.

Problem was, my subconscious mind didn’t have a blueprint to expand upon.

I was close friends with Fear and Self-Doubt when I really wanted to be hanging out with Courage and Confidence.

Have you ever heard that you are the average of the five people you surround yourself with?

Well, it applies to Thoughts and Emotions too.

Especially if those Thoughts and Emotions aren’t aligned with your Big Vision, they can be very detrimental to your progress because they keep you distracted.

Do you ever feel like you’ve been half-heartedly starting in a million different directions with no real results?

Fear and Self-Doubt keeps us from getting very far, doesn’t it?

However, finally, my Path led me in a new direction.

Lackluster results prompted me to try something new.

Something that was so far outside of my comfort zone I was actually ashamed about it at first!

Inner Mean Girl Blair said, “You don’t need help, you are smart, you can figure this out on your own.”

I was allowing that negative inner voice to lead the way.

Until one day, I chose a different decision.

It was one of the scariest things I’d ever done in my life…

The day I decided to hire my first business coach.

When she charged that first $1500 to my credit card, believe me, I had some major buyer’s remorse.

Have you ever had a physical reaction to spending money on yourself?

I thought:

  • I’d made a huge mistake,
  • wasted my money,
  • would look like a fool,
  • was destined to fail,
  • etc.

All the things Mean Girl Blair was telling me so that I could still let myself off the hook.

How many times have you let yourself off the hook?

When we really want something, accountability is key because it’s so easy to let Fear and Self-Doubt creep back in.

My coach not only seemed to think my goals were totally within reach, she actually encouraged me to think even bigger!

She gave me permission to dream as big as I wanted, and boy did I ever!

When I told her the million different business ideas I had, she helped me focus.

When I had questions about sales, taxes, legal issues, etc, she not only gave me advice, she also taught me how to navigate these issues myself.

She introduced me to my new friends Courage and Confidence and knowing that I had her support was all the permission I needed to succeed.

Over the past six years, I’ve invested over $135,000 on business coaches, courses, and conferences.

Today, my business has returned my investment over tenfold.

You can’t build a seven-figure business without first building a six-figure business.

A business coach is the one team member a growth-oriented business owner doesn’t go without.

Some people have asked me, “Can a business coach guarantee my results?”

And the answer is that only you can get results!

However, what we will guarantee is the Pharmapreneur Academy will provide you with the information, support, and business coaching you need to accomplish your goals.

If the Academy program doesn’t meet your expectations, you have the right to request a full refund within 14 days.

We’ve spent the last six years putting together the most comprehensive resource on pharmacist billing services available to date.


Remote services, health and wellness programs, precision medicine…

These are just a few options for a new career (within non-traditional Pharmacy) that don’t require you to go back to school, take out more loans, or quit your day job.

Sounds too good to be true?

Pharmacy Consulting creates a meaningful and fulfilling Career by LEVERAGING your existing skills.

As pharmacists, we know the value of our skills, the problem is we don’t know how to apply those skills to the needs of the healthcare market.

In the last six years, we’ve helped over 600 pharmacists build their own Consulting Businesses through the Pharmapreneur Academy…

And THOUSANDS more through the Elevate Pharmacy Virtual Summits.

Learning business skills like how to describe your value, ex.) strategies for marketing and SELLING your services give you the power to make a new career choice that doesn’t take a ton of start-up capital.

The best part is that there is no risk in trying it out!

Many of the leaders within the Pharmapreneur Academy started by building their businesses alongside their current roles.

Two things tend to happen when pharmacists decide to cultivate their “pharmapreneurial” mindset:

1. They find a new opportunity in a consulting role OR

2. They find a sense of joy by pivoting in their current role

Either way, they recognize that TAKING ACTION is the only way to begin moving towards their Dream Career.

What if you could be a part of a Community of like-minded pharmacists and mentors, and have access to information and resources that would help you succeed in breaking up with the ‘traditional pharmacist’ role?
