This week next level physician entrepreneur and Dr. Anne Kennard and I took the conversation to another level as we conversed about her journey, speaking, and creating a career of her design.

Highlights from the conversation:

· You have to ask yourself "What do I really want?"

· Working with a Physician Coach helped her get clarity

· Her book "Nourish" was created as a result of her making use of some much needed time off.

· Getting into professional speaking requires persistence and the understanding that "No's" are not personal. Try again.

· Having a book gives credibility and helped her get hired for more speaking gigs

· You can be an example of what it is to take care of yourself, be a physician, and create a career you love by your design.
