Show Summary:

What ISN’T Amanda Hill? She embodies the idea of making our ellipses count. It was so fun to welcome her to the podcast this week, and talk about her career path, her passions, and how she weaves creativity throughout everything she does. Even Wednesdays – yes, the day of the week – get special treatment in Amanda’s world! 

Her latest venture, Guard My Practice, is a brand new business, and we discuss the roller coaster of emotions that goes with putting yourself, your ideas, and your money on the line. Amanda also shares some funny stories from the medical world that will make you glad your doctor wears pants. You just have to listen.
