I Quit Naturopathic Medicine and I'm Not Turning Back.
I regret to inform you all; I will no longer be practicing naturopathic medicine.
It took some time for me to realize I'm no longer happy in the profession, but I love freelancing and want to make more room for it. Although I have enjoyed making a difference in the lives of my patients, I've felt that it was time for me to make room for better opportunities for personal growth and my career. I was thinking about walking away after the holidays, but since I have been richly busy in other areas of my career, I thought it was time to let naturopathic medicine go now. I wouldn't necessarily say I am quitting naturopathic medicine all together because I'm using my naturopathic knowledge for other areas in my career. I'm making more room to advance and be in the career I want and enjoy!
I currently am taking on freelance health writing opportunities, consulting for nutritional supplement companies and formulating natural products and cosmetics for start-up companies. Keep an eye out for the launch of my new ebook, "A No-Nonsense Writing and Entrepreneurship Guide I Wish Existed Before I Started."
For the past year, I have been formulating hair and skin care, natural, and supplement products for companies or organizations for specific health conditions (alopecia). I've enjoyed freelancing so much I have decided to open my business for this opportunity. I'm signed on to formulate for big companies all over the globe! In addition, my supplement consulting business is booming, and I am a nutrition consultant for a startup company in China. So, I'm making a huge difference in the lives of my clients across the globe, starting with China. I am utilizing most of my time catering to my formulations and writing business while writing helpful blog posts.
