A few important lessons learned this year as a newbie social impact entrepreneur.

Don’t be afraid to take the leap, but always have a plan. While I left my faculty position in academic medicine a year ago, I didn’t jump without a net. I transitioned to a part-time position in an urgent-care setting while I continued to build Advancing Health Equity.
Try to keep an abundance mindset. You don’t have to say ‘yes’ to every opportunity. You’re probably thinking that this doesn’t make sense. Only say ‘yes’ to the opportunities that you have time and energy for and that align with your values and priorities.
Outsource as needed to maintain your sanity and band with. I started this year solo, but I now have a virtual assistant who helps with scheduling and administrative work. I’ve formed a team of trusted consultants that help facilitate trainings and engagements.
It became apparent early on that I could not do this work alone.
Make sure to set goals and then conquer them!
