Your "Digital Exploration Phase" is a necessary one, & is more important than ever, especially for professionals who are still unsure of how to use the space, or what their goals should be.

I’d love to share a personal experience, that quite possibly can serve as a lesson for us all; I hope that it especially helps where it comes to finding your niche and existing in/dabbling in social media.

I didn’t know what I could offer to those who followed me, when I first entered this formidable space. I knew that I didn’t want to dispense medical advice, because of all of the legalities that surrounded this. Not only that, but I truly value a customized plan for anyone that I consult with, and it’s hard for me to make generalizations. I think this holds most of the physicians I know back. What they know is medicine. But dispensing medicine advice here is a tricky business, to say the least.

“Of what use could I be?” I thought.

It felt wrong, for some reason, to simply be here and abstractly create. It felt like I needed to know EXACTLY what I was doing, where I was headed, and what for; to identify purpose.

But nothing is further from truth.

Don’t ever wave off what I call the “digital exploration phase”, where you’re still not quite sure who you are here, or where you’re headed.

It is of crucial importance.
