Don't forget to take care of yourself! As a healthcare entrepreneur, you're always busy taking care of others, but it's important to schedule time for yourself, too.

Being a healthcare entrepreneur is no doubt a busy job, but taking care of yourself should be high up on your to-do list! In addition to helping you stay physically and emotionally healthy, being mindful of your overall well-being can bring about numerous positive benefits for your personal life and career. Being both mentally and physically strong will give you the energy to continue excelling in whatever you pursue, so don't forget to prioritize yourself. It's worth the effort - if you take time to look after yourself, all those wonderful moments spent taking care of others will only be that much sweeter.

Make sure to get enough sleep, eat healthy meals, and exercise regularly.

Eating right and getting enough sleep are essential to feeling your best, so it's important to make sure you're taking care of yourself. Eating healthy meals, getting adequate rest, and exercising on a regular basis will ensure that you stay in the good physical condition and are able to focus on the things that matter most each day. Eating junk food can make our brains not work as well and can even make us feel sluggish or irritable; so it's important to choose nutrient-packed foods instead. Additionally, making sure you get plenty of sleep is key for a strong immune system and memory retention. Exercise also plays an important role when it comes to feeling your best; it helps with stress release, releases endorphins that create happiness, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, helps with weight management, improves energy levels, and strengthens your bones! All of these aspects combined lead to healthier body functions which allows us both physically and mentally to feel pretty great.

Take breaks when you need them, and don't be afraid to ask for help from friends or family when things get overwhelming.

It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed by the things that are expected of us on a daily basis. We want to do our best and achieve our goals, but it can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed. Whenever you start to feel like this, don't hesitate to take a break and allow yourself some time to relax. Having support from family or friends when things become difficult can be incredibly helpful so never be afraid to reach out for help. Studies have found that support from people who care about us can have a major influence in how we tackle challenging situations. Remember to practice self-care and enlist support from loved ones when needed - these actions can help support your success in the long run!

Remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health, so make time for activities that make you happy and relax you.

The brain and body are both connected, so you should never forget that your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Taking the time to do things that make you feel relaxed and happy is essential for overall wellbeing. Whether it's having a cup of tea with friends, reading a book, or simply taking a few minutes to yourself to breathe deeply, dedicating time to activities you enjoy can help clear your mind and keep stress at bay. The importance of taking care of your mental health should not be underestimated!

Taking care of yourself can be tough, but it's worth it in the long run. You'll be able to better take care of your patients and business if you're taking care of yourself first!


Taking care of yourself is no simple task - it can feel like a chore but is worth every ounce of energy invested. Good health leads to good business and good patients too! A well-rested provider can make better decisions and provide superior patient care than their exhausted counterparts. Plus, by taking time for self-care, you have more physical and mental space to continue providing high-quality service. You'll be able to serve your clients better if you're strong enough to give them your best. This isn't just good for business; it's good for everyone involved. Caring for yourself guarantees that you can go above and beyond in everything else you do.

Emmanuel’s handy tip to create and organize a simple timetable:

Take all seven areas of your life—physical, financial, mental, spiritual, social, vocation, and family. Now take a calendar and allocate time for essential life functions like sleep, work hours, and other unskippable tasks. Balance the time left between each of your value system areas. The remaining time allocation should cover all seven areas to reduce stress levels. Needless to say, you should prioritize the areas that matter the most to you.

Healthcare Entrepreneurs!

I can help you gain visibility and credibility in the right circles so you can accelerate your mission and profitability!

After overcoming burnout working in surgery, I went back to my roots in neuroscience and public health. I learned the importance of building key human relationships with my team throughout our organization.

While helping healthcare executives and entrepreneurs to get out of the day-to-day operation of their practice, I realized I needed more visibility and more connections to reach my ideal clients.

Once I set out to be highly visible in the right circles, I was able to leverage my network of strategic partners to convert clients 5x higher than any other marketing channel I had tried previously.

Now I help healthcare change-makers to accelerate their impact and increase profitability by gaining visibility and credibility with the right strategic partners.

My clients no longer worry about where their next client is coming from, the need to plan additional budget for ads spending, or losing the ability to connect with others because their social media account is shut down.

If you want to share your social mission with the world and gain pivotal supporters that become loyal clients... then you are in the right place, with the right consultant who is also a recovered clinician.
