A lot of people have asked us why this is something that we feel so strongly about and why we have invested our own money and resources into this.
Anna had been part of a business coaching group for a number of years and had found it very helpful to have the accountability of a group and to be able to network even though people in the group were not in the same or even similar fields. The three of us had come to know one another after each having started our own individual businesses and we found it extremely powerful to share ideas with one another. Medipreneurs was born from that.
Because we have found so much help by working together, we knew that other people would find the same benefits. The summit was born from there. And what an interesting process it has been. It has taught us what is doable, and what is not. It’s taught us to be flexible and enjoy the journey.
We are three smart, fierce, and pretty quirky pharmacists who chose to get out of the box, become entrepreneurs, and find freedom by starting our own businesses. This allowed us to pursue our passions, and approach health care holistically with the focus where it should be – on the patient.
The three of us joined forces to help each other through the journey from traditional pharmacist to business owner and from this we have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly along the way. We spent years working to create business models and systems that work; to understand the marketing strategies necessary for growth; and to grow our highly successful businesses.
We made a choice to forge new paths in healthcare, and take back the power to heal that a pharmacist should have. Although we’re each following our own unique passion, we are united in our purpose: To give other medical professionals the tools to do things differently and join us as leaders in this new movement in pharmacy.
We work and network with many pharmacy entrepreneurs and INTRApreneurs, and we are witnesses to how THESE are the pharmacists who are not only finding true autonomy and are able to provide real patient-centered care, as they should be, but they’re also finding greater financial success doing so.
