For What Am I Thankful?

It’s Thanksgiving Day and I’m at an airport. I’ve been up since 2:45a local time. I am traveling for work. But I am not complaining because I love doing what I do. I love the impact that I’m making through business. And I have wanderlust, so I love any chance I have to get in a car or on a plane. For many years, my brother and sisters have compared me to Nicholas Cage’s character …

Welcome to 2019!

What Have I Been Doing? It’s interesting how many people are introspective at the end of each year. It’s also interesting how so many people develop corresponding “resolutions” because of that introspection.  According to the Washington Post, 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. That, to me, is a positive. (There is ample evidence that shows that less than 3% of Americans actually write down their goals.) However, according to an old Forbes article, “Just …

Happy Independence Day 2018

Whenever I travel abroad, I am always amazed at how many people view United States Capitalism as a negative and exploitive system. There is seldom a reference to the positive outcomes of impact capitalism. And the negatives are usually more attributable to corporatism than capitalism. Even more frightening is how more young people in the US are viewing capitalism as a harmful system and should be replaced by socialist ideas. On this Independence Day 2018, …

Free Fallin’

I write this post as concerns of a trade war are brewing between the United States and China (early 2018). The rhetoric being pushed out by the United States (among many other activist actors) is that current agreements are not free and fair. This post is not about trade wars. Rather, I want to explore the two core perspectives used in this specific economic argument: Free and Fair. As discussed elsewhere, we at IC believe …

The Trouble with Double-Ds

What a title! Is this about what I am thinking? No. No it’s not – but the case here is still going to be viewed by some as insensitive. The Double-D’s that I am talking about are two dangerous but prevalent words/concepts: Deserve and Demand. No two interrelated words should frighten Impact Capitalists more than deserve and demand So, what’s the problem? Don’t we deserve things? And shouldn’t we demand what we deserve (and when …

What is Regenerative Health Management and Why Does It Matter?

Regenerative health management is the active, on-going process of helping the body heal itself. This process considers the regenerative properties of the human body, not simply a checklist of therapies, drugs, or surgeries. Unfortunately, the relatively new field of regenerative medicine is already falling into the old traps of checklists and high priced surgeries. What’s continuing to exacerbate the problems surrounding the field of regenerative medicine is not having the primary care physicians involved. Regenerative …

Time Management Issues: Email

“The Death of Email” is something that’s been foretold for over 10 years now. And whether you love it or hate it, email is not going anywhere. Not any time soon, however. There are other tools that have come along and tried to supplant email, but at this point, these programs are merely supplemental tools. Albeit, very good tools. We use email for external communications. For internal communications and collaboration, there are 2 main tools …

Pursuing Your Righteous Path as an Impact Physician

Being an impact physician is not about “changing the world” or “pursuing your passion.” It’s very much different from either of those misguided notions… As you may well know by now, being an impact capitalist is about using business ownership to make an impact, or a meaningful difference, in the lives of others. As an impact physician, that is done coupled with the art of healing. But how do we, as impact capitalists and impact …

The Impact Physician Give-Greed Continuum

*This post is revised from previously published Give/Greed post to emphasize Impact Physicians and healthcare – there is more info in that blog – so check it out We’re necessarily looking to “change the world.” At least not in the sense that everyone else talks about it. There are many people trying to “change the world” and many more teachers, pastors, coaches, business leaders, and politicians, to name just a few, who are encouraging others to …
