Thanks for helping me find the courage to change
Thank you for the support and advice. I rocked the interview, got a great job offer and resigned my current position this week. I so appreciate your support. This has made all the difference and I can breathe again!
Update December 2018 Transition to the new position: I’m very open about coaching/talking with you and encourage many others to reach out! I appreciate your support!

Errin is absolutely fantastic & helped me discover a HUGE Aha!
I had the awesome opportunity to work with Errin & was so happy I did! I was specifically asking for help around clarity in my business, and she really helped me organize my very scattered thoughts. I loved that she was able to sum things up in a way that was exactly what I meant....but just couldn't say myself.
She also helped me have a huge 'Aha' moment about how I was wasting a TON of time & energy on those who just aren't the right fit for me. Since our session, I can't even count how many hours I've saved!!! There were hours that I was previously convinced were needed to get more clients. But now, I am able to use them for just spending time with my kiddo, or doing actual productive things for my business!

"Through coaching with Dr. Errin, I was able to turn down a job that wasn't going to fit me, my family and goals even though money wise it made reasonable sense. Then a few months later, the perfect situation arose and I was able to transition easily to it and move forward in my life."

"So glad you came through burnout and found a way to shine for many to receive the help only Errin Weisman can provide! Funny how even when we feel we cannot walk, talk, or see the Lord has a way of making us stronger through it."

If anyone is looking for more one on one help, errin would be an amazing coach for you.
"Over the last year, I have been slowly going down the road of developing burnout and Errin has helped me do some soul searching and been a great listener and supporter! I encourage everyone to follow her page, Truth Prescriptions with Dr. Errin Weisman She posts a lot of free videos and short articles. I really think that these can help you get to know her, and if you needed help or a coach you would feel more comfortable reaching out to her. No way would I have ever just asked a stranger I knew nothing about for help!! Even if you have no symptoms of burnout, there is always some struggles of being a physician Mom and she gets it. "

So far, I’m loving the change. It’s been a huge step to make this change. I feel like for female docs, we have loans, kids, family,and change is scary! And I always tell myself the one thing you said that has stuck with me, “It’s not this or that. This is what I’m doing right now, but it doesn’t have to be forever. Things change. Situations change. You change.” I think you are doing a great job with the coaching and I am always happy to help in any way!

I literally started recommending her work to my own doctors!
"I worked with Errin as her copywriter for about six months when she was first launching her business. From the beginning, Errin felt like a friend and not just a client! Her heart is truly for service and her ability to cut to the heart and help her clients move their lives forward in the most positive way is inspiring. I literally started recommending her work to my own doctors! If you're a doctor/mom and struggling at all with work/life balance or with burnout, hire Errin STAT."

my favorite was the campfire coaching
“I was most interested in the personal reflection aspects of this retreat because it's what I have the least amount of experience with out of all the activities we did. I want more mental health, self care, soul searching questions and discussions that set goals or provide instruction for real life application. I appreciate the reflection questions that Dr. Errin asked during the retreat. From an introvert's perspective, the large groups were a little daunting. I liked that we split into small groups and allowed for more new conversations. I would be a repeat attendee and bring another friend to the same retreat because I love doing all the things we did but I would be even more excited if the next one included more of the life reflection/goals/application aspects.”

LOVed the women in the wild retreat!
“Your retreat meant reconnecting with a “Me” that was slowly dying. I came back as a better wife, mom, and worker! My “give a damn” meter was broken at work. It is on its way to mending. I recognize myself now. I enjoyed trying new things and pushing my experience level. I loved it all and already telling all my friends!”
Errin isn't only a doctor. She's also a mom, wife, friend and an amazing life coach. She understands the ins and outs of burnout better than just about anyone else and brings the human-ness back to healthcare through helping physicians take time for themselves and rediscover who they are, outside of being a doctor. Whether speaking or coaching, her knowledge goes far beyond burnout but touches on remembering who you are beneath the surface so you can be the best version of yourself.

I hope you don’t give up clinical medicine
You stood out from day one. Your drive and love and intelligence. I hate the business of medicine has hurt the passion and love for medicine for so many. Don’t let it win. Errin, you are amazing and what you’re doing for others is amazing.

Thank you for being a source of support! I appreciate you!!!
“I dropped down in days in the clinic. They pushed at me but I stood my ground. They ultimately gave me what I asked for. Now upping my hours on my side gigs. Also dealing with a lot of drama lash back from staff but I’m standing firm as it’s what’s best for me and my family. Thank you for being a source of support! I wouldn’t felt like I was navigating these waters alone until I knew about you and what you’re doing for many docs. It makes such a difference in the confidence in my decisions. I appreciate you!!!”
Where do I even start?!?
I have worked at the Pike County Library for 5 years in September of this year, and every time Dr. Errin visits… the library smiles, as do the clerks at the front desk. Errin has always been a fantastic patron, she can recommend you any YA (Young Adult) book/series if you ask her, she may even be better at it than the librarians!
She isn't afraid to share her thoughts and will let you know how it is. (Which many people don't do) Errin is one of a kind. As soon as we met to discuss our program "Dr. Weisman Tells All" for teens and young adults, I knew this is someone I can trust and we can work successfully together to provide a informational program for teens.
So overall, my experiences with Errin have always been fun and informative! The library and community should be very pleased to have someone as unique and intelligent as Dr. Errin Weisman! Thank you for all you do!
