After visiting a Colorado dude ranch recently, I couldn't help acknowledging the several business lessons I gained from my equestrian experience. And it was a very fun metaphor to work with!

In this month's Entrepreneurial MD Newsletter article, I share horse tales from the Colorado dude ranch I recently visited.

Whilst having fun was my number one priority, I couldn't help acknowledging the several business lessons I gained from my equestrian experience. And it was a very fun metaphor to work with!

The six horsey lessons I learned (along with their business translations for physician business owners) are:

  • It’s all about balance
  • It’s all in the hips
  • It’s all about ease
  • It’s all about knowing who’s Boss
  • It’s all about communication
  • It’s all about trust

Read the whole article here... (and I'd love to hear your life lessons learned if you're a rider, in the Comment section!)

And yes, that is me in my cowgirl hat :-)
