Stingy Isn’t Always Bad. It Just Depends on What You’re Stingy With.

Dana Corriel, MD, describes an instance where professionals actually NEED to be stingy.

Who else out there is stingy with their time?

Allow me to explain.

Someone from a group I’m in asked about healthcare advisory roles.

I chimed in.

I’ve had experience with MANY offers, many negotiations, and have taken on various advisory roles.

Needless to say, I have become quite stingy with my time because I believe in valuing my worth.

Everyone, in fact, should actively, and properly, asses their worth.

Because here’s the thing: being stingy with your time isn’t at all a bad thing. It’s a smart thing. It protects our well-being and contributes to our happiness. It’s putting yourself in the driver’s seat.

Where it comes to advising/consulting, this is especially true, because deals aren’t always straight forward.

If there’s a clearly spelled out monetary return for your time (and intellectual property), it’s usually more straight forward. However, where equity is offered, you need to understand the logistics at play, and this is where it becomes much more complicated.

There’s a lot being built out there today, and a lot of strategic offers from companies just staying out, and where your time may not translate into payment.

That said, if you’re the one who’s building the startup, look into ojrnoiblicly accessible doctor Databank, where you can not only find today’s “doer” doctors, but where you can filter out specifics like their online presence, side gigs, and more: https://doctorsonsocialmedia.com/health-experts.
