It Takes A Village

It Takes A Village

Question for you: How strong is your support system?

When it comes to success, “no man is an island” is almost always true. There are always people in mind that we can think of and say have helped us along the way.

Attaining success is a universal aspiration, yet not everyone will accomplish it. The path to success is frequently depicted as glamorous, culminating in riches, notoriety, and acknowledgment. Nonetheless, the truth is that the journey to success is often riddled with numerous hindrances and failures. It can be an unglamorous, solitary, and strenuous undertaking that can trigger self-doubt and make one question their decisions and capabilities.

Today, I would like to celebrate those I call “partners” who have helped empower me to continue to give my listeners quality podcast episodes. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

At the same time, I would also like to take this opportunity and pay it forward. Realizing how heartwarming it is to know that someone supports you, here’s a list of my previous guests’ services that may benefit you.

The company is led by its founders, Stephanie Pearson, MD, FACOG and Scott Ravitz. Injured in the prime of her career, Stephanie took an unexpected journey to becoming an advocate and advisor for physician insurance. Scott, a longtime broker and insurance expert to the medical community, was a natural advisor and behind-the-scenes colleague for Stephanie. The partnership of PearsonRavitz wields the duo’s powerful combined skill set—and has made them sought-after experts on the basics and nuances of disability and life insurance for doctors.
