Physicians are increasingly seeing entrepreneurship as a way to improve the quality of care they can provide their patients, create a legacy beyond their years of training, and build a successful business. While starting a business is never easy, physicians have many unique advantages that can help them create a highly profitable business. 

In this episode, Lauren and Jacque talk with Dr. Nneka Unachukwu or Dr. "Una,". She is the Founder and CEO of EntreMD. Dr. Una created the EntreMD business school, podcast, and community to help physicians build personal brands around their expertise, open practices, and develop product lines.
