If you start your workday by thinking "I hate being a pharmacist!" the changes are you aren't very content with your job. I might have a solution for you!
First of all, I'm sorry you feel that way about your profession. But I want you to know it's completely normal to feel this way.
Just check out this video by Kevin Yee if you don't believe me:
The truth is that there are tons of professionals in well-paid positions that feel just like you do.
But when you've invested years of time and tons of money to get an education, it's hard to even think about changing professions.
To make things worse, the grass isn't really greener on the other side. The fact is that not all people can adapt to the requirements of the modern-day working life.
I don't know about you, but I would prefer to actually enjoy what I do for a living. Fortunately there are plenty of options in the modern world.
If you don't like your career, the grass unfortunately isn't always greener on the other side.
While a dream job might solve your other problems, you will still be dependent on that income.
In today's world it's wise to diversify your income sources as much as possible. So that you have the choice of turning down jobs you don't like.
If you for example feel that working 40+ hours per week for someone else on their terms is not a sustainable solution, the business model I will show you can offer a real solution.
I'll show you exactly how in a minute but let's talk a bit more why you probably don't like your pharmacist career.
The Challenges Of Pharmacy
You probably got into pharmacy due to three reasons. Feel free to correct me in the comments section below if I'm wrong.
- You were interested in the medical field
- You wanted to help people
- The pay seemed good
Many people who decide to become pharmacists are interested in the medical field but don't for one reason or another want to become doctors.
Maybe the more stable office hours, clean desk work and relatively good pay are what got you hooked.
Whatever your motivations for becoming a pharmacist were, the reality has probably turned out to be something very different.
Instead of having a lot of time to review prescriptions and take enough time to help your customers out, you might feel like a glorified drug pusher that has to serve customers at a ridiculous pace. There is no time to thoroughly review prescriptions and you just have to trust that everything goes well and the doctor hasn't made any errors.
Things, like going over prescriptions with patients and talking to doctors to optimize patient care, are likely non-existent in your work. And if you do get a hold of a doctor, they might not listen to you and respect your opinion.
The office hours might not be that good either, especially if you are retail pharmacy as pharmacies are often open till late at night and in the weekends.
Your job is also likely a lot more stressful than you thought. You have to worry about filling the prescriptions correctly, about fake prescriptions and all the hassle of customer service.
Finally, you probably have significant debt from your tuition, you can't afford to quit your job. You feel stuck.
But you have skills that can get you out of that hole!
Your Skills Are Rare!
You might not realize it or you might take it as a granted, but the fact you've managed to become a pharmacist means that you are an intelligent and capable person.
As a pharmacist, you need to have a good memory, science and math skills, social skills, accuracy, integrity, communication skills, management skills, ability to organize and manage your work independently among many others.
That fact is that not just anyone can become a pharmacist, you need a base level of intelligence and the aforementioned traits to even pass the training.
The good news is that because of these skills, the world is your oyster! You have a ton of options. The world is a playground for intelligent people like you!
I know it might not feel like it, but that's because you are letting learned behaviors to limit your imagination.
I'm going to present to you an option that a person with your ability can use to create success in their life on their own terms.
Online Business To The Rescue!
I'm talking about becoming an entrepreneur in the online world. Now I know you might be suspicious or think that's something you couldn't possibly do because you know nothing about computers or programming for example.
But please hear me out, I promise you will find this information useful even if you don't find it a good match for yourself. This knowledge helps you understand how the online world operates.
You see, there are tons of regular people just like you and me that are earning full-time income and more through content they create online.
There are several ways to produce content and there are several ways to monetize that content. I'm sure you've heard that YouTube and Instagram stars make big money with their content. As do successful bloggers.
While you probably newer have considered those as a career option (I sure didn't), you can actually leverage the online world to create a successful business about anything you feel passionate about.
There is a way that requires next to no technical skills or understanding about programming for example.
It also doesn't require you to be a camera-friendly fitness star or a comedian either, you can, in fact, do it anonymously.
It involves creating content on a website you own, with search engine optimized posts.
So it's essentially like blogging, but you don't just write about whatever comes to your mind. You need a niche that your site is built upon because Google loves relevancy.
You then need to research carefully so that the topics you write about are built around phrases people are looking for, preferably ones with low competition.
This might seem complicated at first but it's really an easy creative process you get the hang of through practice, like with everything else.
Just think about how you wound up here. My passion is to help out people struggling with their careers. I want to help people find alternate options. I want them to succeed on their own terms.
So I knew there are Pharmacists who hate their careers, I looked it up. My niche is everything work and online business-related. I created this post around what you likely write in Google when you are frustrated.
So how I monetize this post? Well, I'm going to show you the place I learned these skills a couple of years ago. I'm an affiliate of them, so if you decide to join through my link, I will earn a small commission with no additional cost to you.
The place is called Wealthy Affiliate. It's a platform that includes step-by-step training and all the tools you need to create a thriving business.
While I'm an affiliate of theirs, I truly think it's the perfect solution to your situation. I've used their service extensively and know from personal experience it 100% works if you follow the training and put in the work.
I also know the system works on any niche because I actually initially created a site about strength training for seniors following their training. I monetize that site mainly through Amazon products.
There are tons of success stories that prove you can use this system to create an income-producing website in any niche.
I'm so impressed with the service that I decided I want to spread the word about this opportunity to people in similar situations I was in.
So please rest assured this is not about promoting their product forward and getting news people into the system. There are unethical companies that do exactly that. They are often pyramid schemes or so-called "High Ticket Programs".
Wealthy Affiliate is nothing like that, you'll find they are a very honest and straight forward company if you do a bit of digging around.
They just offer you the opportunity and tools to create your own business for an affordable price.
How To Succeed With Online Business
I learned about this business model several years ago but I actually never succeeded it with until I followed the training at WA.
The fact is that the overall process is very simple but there are a ton of little details you need to know. The technical side is very easy but you still need to know a ton of "tricks" to succeed.
That's why it's very important to have someone to guide you. This is where WA steps in, it will help you learn and work efficiently while growing your business.
I want you to know that if you join through my link you will also have my full support. You can contact me anytime through at WA and I will promise to do my best to help you out.
If you want further support, I recommend you join my free 7-day online marketing course. It will fast-track your progress at WA and I will share with you my personal tips.
You will also gain my additional support because you can contact me by replying to any of my emails.
Your business essentially consists of your website or websites. They are your base of operations.
If you follow the training, you will get the technical things right. This gives you the opportunity to succeed but it's not enough to actually create a successful money-producing website.
The real key to success is creating enough content. It's the thing that will create authority for your site and rank it on Google.
I want you to know this so that you have realistic expectations and so that you don't waste your time and energy on things that don't matter as much.
My other site didn't receive any traffic after 30 posts. After 50 posts it was getting consistent traffic but little sales. At the 100 posts mark it was producing a consistent income. Nothing huge but a nice extra where to grow from.
And it has continued to produce that income for the past 5 months even though I haven't touched it. I've been working on this site.
So to truly succeed with your online business, you should aim to write at least 100 targeted blog posts before expecting any kind of meaningful income.
I've seen the number 400 posts thrown around as the magical number for making a full-time income. I know that sounds like a huge number but it can actually be done in a year if you write every day.
Most people can't achieve that, I know I haven't, but I'm not in a hurry. If I don't hit 400 this year, I'll hit it the next. My site will grow regardless.
But I want you to know what you are getting into. A proficient writer can write a single post in about 2 hours. I usually take about 3 to 4 hours and I have a goal to write every day even if I don't manage to publish it.
So there you have it, I've given you all the information you need to create an online business of your own. Are you going to keep hating your career or are you going to invest in your future?
Like I said in the beginning, I'm sorry you hate your job as a Pharmacist but I want you to know this is very common. There are endless amounts of employees in well-paid positions like doctors, dentists, lawyers, sales jobs, etc. that hate their careers.
The fact is that many think they can't afford to quit their jobs and never even try to find a way out. Unfortunately, this will kill your spirits over time and can lead to depression and anxiety or even burnout.
I don't want you to end up like this. That's why I hope this post created some hope in your heart.
I remember when I found out about this stuff for the first time, I felt a great sense of hope and excitement. I realized I have the opportunity and it's just up to me to take it.
It took me several years and finding the right training at WA was the turning point. I eventually accepted I needed to actually apply what I've learned.
I wrote a ton of content and things just clicked. I'm not doing this full-time but I have a very nice side income and I know that replicating my previous actions I can grow it.
This is something I want you to realize. This is a huge profit opportunity, not some scam that promises instant success. But it requires serious effort on your part.
But if you work on it every day, you will eventually succeed in creating a full-time income of it.
