Let me ask you a question…when you go to work every day, are you doing a job or is it your dream career?
Because there is a difference!
One of the things that I have learned from my years in private practice is that sometimes things just don’t work out. It wasn’t because I didn’t work or try hard enough, it was just not meant to be.
In this episode of the Fearless Practitioners Podcast, I am joined by Amy Goodson and we are talking about how to be brave. Being brave enough to follow up on emails and connect with people can be the key that unlocks your dream career. Listen in as Amy shares how she built her dream career by tapping into her connections, following up with people and being brave.It takes courage to pick up the phone & follow up with connections we have made. This week's #FearlessPractitioners #Podcast has guest @amy_goodson_rd talking about being brave and creating your dream practice. #RDChat #RDtobe Click To Tweet
