After 20 years as an Emergency physician and as former Chief of the Emergency Department, Dr. Sam Gerstein witnessed first-hand the toll work stress takes on people’s health. He became interested in illness prevention and began giving talks to help organizations decrease work stress, but deep down, he knew that wasn’t enough. True mental health involves fulfilling your passion and purpose at work.
He began researching people who loved their work and published his results in his highly acclaimed book, Live Your Dreams: Doctor’s Orders, that features 40 entrepreneurs who overcame their biggest fears to start their own Dream businesses.
In 2008, he then completely pivoted his work to open his own private psychotherapy practice to focus on the total Mind-Body. He has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs-at-heart to first manage their work stress so they could leave dissatisfying jobs and discover and start their own Dream Businesses to make a difference in the world.
He is reshaping the definition of work from ‘drudgery for dollars’ to ‘passion for profits’ and has shared his views on Slice TV and Zoomer Radio. Now he wants to do the same for you.
