Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

The “Accidental Teacher”

by | Dec 7, 2015 | MTM Entrepreneurship


“Pharmacists began contacting me, hungry for more information about how they too could become MTM consultants.”

I took an online personality assessment today.  This isn’t unusual due to the fact that I’m a personal development junkie/nerd!

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to take this silly quiz that gives an insight into my personality (I love those quizzes like “What type of cheese are you?” or whatever; you know the kind I’m talking about).  This quiz that promised to show me what type of entrepreneur I am.

According to my results, I’m what is known as the Accidental Teacher.  For once, I think this is a pretty fair assessment!

It all started after a hard job loss and I began picking up any work I could doing pharmacist relief work [read the long version here].  

Then everything really started taking off when I decided that if I was going to do medication therapy management (MTM) for one of the pharmacies where I was doing relief.

As per my personality, if I was going do it I would give 110%

First, I had to figure out the best and most efficient way of doing it!

  • I did so and created a very successful program.

Second, I realized I enjoyed running the MTM program more than anything else I had done since graduation!

  • Immediately, I decided that I would pursue consulting in a more focused way.

During that time and because of that dedication to consulting, I decided to put up a website.  Through my own business building process, I began to put together some marketing materials and started sharing my journey via the blog.

Everything that has happened since is what I consider one of the biggest blessings I’ve ever received!

(This is where the “Accidental Teacher” part comes in)

Pharmacists began contacting me, hungry for more information about how they too could become MTM consultants. The response to my blog was so overwhelming that I had to do something; I didn’t have enough hours in the day to help everyone, I had to figure out a way to get my message out to more people and help other pharmacists realize their entrepreneurial dreams.

After a lot of hard work, I have finally figured out how I’m going to do it!

I’ve already shared the news with my coaching clients and members of the Pharmapreneur community, but I also want to offer this opportunity to as many pharmacists who are interested in building a consulting business.

During the month of December it will be offered to Newsletter subscribers at a very special price!
