There is a reason that medicine doesn't feel like the promised land you thought it would...
Yet most doctors don't realize that these (hidden) obstacles are causing the problem...
Pay attention! This is important
if you don't want to keep feeling trapped in medicine!
Does this sound like your current situation?
You have a hard time making it to the tee-ball games, recitals, and PTA meetings...
...so you have thought about going part-time or changing jobs.
With your success you should be happy, but all you feel is burned out by the pre-authorizations, peer to peers, and charting...
...so you have thought about leaving medicine altogether.
You don't have the money you need to walk away from medicine or go part-time...
...so you keep showing up, even though you dread the next shift.
You feel stuck because of student loan debt, non-competes in your contract, and having no leverage.
...so you have thought about creating a side-gig, but you don't even know where to start.
There just isn't enough time in the day to get everything done...
...so, you put your head down and work harder, only to become more burned out by the EMR, online modules, and insurance company demands.
If ANY of that resonates with you,
you are the victim of a broken medical system.
But it doesn't have to be this way!
Hi! I'm Jimmy... and I used to feel burned out in medicine, too.
Imagine if you ...
Could enjoy work!
Had the time to make it to your kid's tennis practice and tee ball games!
Fell back in love with medicine.
Felt present at home as a wife, mother, AND physician (or husband and dad)!
Were content at home and at work.
Rekindled your love for medicine and your passion for being a doctor.
Knew exactly how to work through your problems and career decisions.
Could enjoy work (and actually looked forward to your next shift)!
Felt validated and surrounded by doctors on the same journey as you.
Knew exactly what you needed to do to fix your career.
Became a better version of yourself (or found the old you).
Felt supported at home and at work!
Become the captain of your ship.
These are the words doctors just like you use to describe their transformation after ACE...
The Alpha Coaching Experience
Our Exclusive 3 Pillar System to Physician Freedom (see below)
Our step-by-step process for defeating burnout and creating work-life balance.
The Self-Coaching Book For Physicians
We aren't going to fish FOR you in ACE. Instead, we teach you how to fish. This book lays out the coaching concepts you need.
The 3 Pillars You Will
Master Inside of ACE:
Do you want different results? Then, it takes a different version of you. This is where you learn how to do the hard work of changing your thoughts to get different results.
Like gas for the car of work-life balance, money is what allows us to live the life we want to live. Save for tomorrow while you build cash flow for today.
Time (Ideal Life)
Finding that elusive work-life balance requires intentional planning, intentional thought work, and mastery of your “why” in life.
Because when you master your mindset, money, and ideal life… THAT is when you can take back the autonomy and control over your life.

ACE can help you!
Dr. Michael Runyon, MD
"I have to admit that I was a bit of a coaching skeptic, but I am so glad I that I took the leap because the Alpha Coaching program has been a truly transformational experience!
This has helped free me from the anxiety of my to-do list and empowered me to live in the present, secure in the fact that I am exactly where I need to be at any given moment in time...
and that I have an intentional plan for managing my other responsibilities. I highly recommend the Alpha Coaching program to anyone who wants to live a more content and intentional life.
Maybe you don't feel trapped in medicine... Maybe there's another reason why you want to go to the next level as a physician...
There are many reasons people join the Alpha Coaching Experience.
- Some doctors want to go from "Good" to "Great"
- Doctors who know they need to make a change in their career, but want help figuring out what it is and how to take the next step!
- Seekers of a new way of thinking (because the old way isn't working).
- Those who want a like-minded community of physicians who are tired of the status-quo

By the end of the Alpha Coaching Experience, you will be able to:

Serena H. Chen, MD
"The coaching has been invaluable to me... I can't say enough about the experience."
Drew Cronyn, MD
"When I started I thought the price was high...It was well worth it. I would probably say he could charge 3 to 4 times the amount and it would be worth it. This will undoubtedly buy extra years in my career."
But it costs too much!!!
...It's not about the price though, is it? It is about the value.
If I offered you a Ferrari or a Porsche for $10,000... you'd find the $10,000. Why?
Because you recognize the value of the investment (even if you aren't a car person)!
Coaching is the same... and if that isn't enough, ACE teaches you a STEP-BY-STEP process to create financial freedom so there is a literal Return On Investment.
Even if there weren't an ROI, how much is it worth to you to enjoy work again? Or to look forward to your next shift?
You and your family can't afford NOT to invest in you finding the freedom to live life on your own terms!
Joining ACE and Learning The 3 Pillars to Physician Freedom is an investment in you.
After all, if you don't take care of yourself first, how can you properly take care of anyone else in your life?
It is like oxygen on a plane. If the plane starts going down, you are instructed to put your oxygen on first.
Why? So that you can help other people next.
We are no good to our families or our patients if we are worn out, anxious, fatigued, or overwhelmed.
Transformation is possible. It is time to learn how to be the best version of yourself and enjoy the journey along the way!
P.S. There is a no-questions-asked refund policy, too! So what do you have to lose?
The Alpha Coaching 14-Day Free Trial:
We believe in coaching so much that we GUARANTEE you will agree that it is worth the investment...
... and we want this to be as easy as possible for you to get the coaching you need!
So, for 14 days the program costs you no money. Take a spin, get some coaching, see what its like, and if you don't find it helpful, simply cancel your payment!
No questions asked.
If You Want to find the Personal and Financial Freedom to Practice Medicine Because You Want To (Not Because You Have To)...
You have two choices:
1) Stay Exactly Where You Are, and...
- Remain burned out in medicine until you've finally saved enough to walk away.
- Keep feeling unappreciated and undervalued.
- Continue to tell yourself it is the system's fault and there is nothing you can do about how you feel.
- Make excuses about not having enough time or money to make a change.
- Constantly feel overwhelmed and stressed.
- Experience the constant stress from busy clinics, OR schedules, or shifts.
2) Take a Leap of Faith with Coaching, and ...
- Create work-life balance so that you can be present at home and at work.
- Create the financial freedom you need to live the life you want.
- Fall back in love with medicine.
- Eliminate burnout.
- Stop feeling overwhelmed.
- Become the captain of your ship.
- Look forward to your next shift at the hospital or clinic.
Alpha Client Stories:
Ryan Stringer D.O.
"It's incredible to see the difference this course has made not only in my professional life, but my personal life at home."
Dr. Andrew Hart
"I know in the future as I learn more and get coached more it's only going to keep getting better and better."
Can't I just get one-on-one coaching? And wouldn't it cost less?
First, you'll need to interview a lot of coaches to find a good fit. Then, you'll need to hope that they are good at what they do. (And that you won't need any other kind of coaching they don't provide).
Or... you can let the Alpha Coaching Experience do the heavy lifting for you by finding the right coaches to fit your needs!
- What happens if your one-on-one coach isn't a good fit?
- What happens if you want to get coached one week on your career and the next week on your marriage? (And the following week on business?)
My friend, with one-on-one coaching you are stuck! With just one option.
Inside the Alpha Coaching Experience, we hand-select coaches for each enrollment based on the needs of our Alpha clients!
You want coaches to help with burnout? We have them.
You want to get great marriage coaching? It's there.
Oh, you want money coaching to help you earn more money? Yep. We offer that too!
You may be thinking...
"How will I find the time for a coaching program? I'm already overwhelmed!"
You aren't alone! Most hard-working doctors feel like there is never enough time in the day (which causes them to feel overwhelmed - sound familiar?).
THAT is why we actually teach our clients how to become time-management gurus through our Hell Yes Policy and A Priori Planning processes inside ACE.
Because, at the end of the day, it isn't really about not having enough time, is it? We all get 24 hours in the day no matter who we are.
That's why we teach our clients in ACE how to effectively and efficiently manage their time so that they can be present in the moment both at home and at work doing exactly what they should be doing (including getting the coaching they need!)
Sourendra Raut, MD, CM
" The Alpha Coaching experience is an excellent combination of one-on-one and group sessions that allows you to generate insights into many of the common issues that we as physicians struggle with on a regular basis.
Through the guidance of Jimmy and his coaching colleagues, I have been able to modify my behaviors to effectuate positive changes in my life. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course for any healthcare providers who want to start approaching their careers and lives in a more sustainable manner and need some guidance and support to get this accomplished."
Dr. Adam S.
"Joining this group has been the best professional decision I've made all year.
Life, career, finance - nothing is off limits and this program has taught me how to be more intentional in all aspects of life.
I cannot speak highly enough about this coaching program. It's something I recommend to friends and co-workers regularly - no matter what career stage you are in, this will be well worth your time!"

Meet Our Amazing Alpha Coach Team
Lil Surprenant, MD
Internal Medicine Hospitalist
My name is Lil Surprenant and I've worked as an IM hospitalist for many years. I'm originally from South Carolina, trained in Utah and traveled here and there before landing back home. I've worked in multiple hospital systems both big and small and have travelled the road from serious burnout to real satisfaction at work.
On the personal side, this many years on the planet has allowed for a lot of experiences that give me perspective as a coach...divorce, bankruptcy (yes, I'm telling you this on a bio!), remarriage, sprinkle on a sustained 75 lb weight loss and lots of living in between. I'm the person that you can bring your stuff to, no matter what it is or how you feel about it now. I've got you.
Daniel Presutti, MD
Originally from Connecticut, Dan is currently an academic anesthesiologist in North Carolina. Interestingly, his path into medicine was not the result of 20+ straight years of academics.
Dan earned his Bachelor of Science from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Post college graduation, Dan served as an Army Officer for 5 years, including deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003). It was during this time of service when he made the decision to change career paths and pursue medicine.
Dan’s wife, Jenna, is a CRNA and there’s never a dull moment with 3 kids, a Saint Bernard, and a Bernese Mountain Dog! Dan brings a variety of life experiences, including a divorce, that have helped shape his views on life. He coaches physicians in areas of interpersonal relationships, life balance, and building self-worth and goal orientation.
Tricia James, MD
I am an Academic Internal Medicine physician still practicing inpatient/outpatient medicine and teaching. Coaching helped me go from feeling trapped in my job to thriving! I also have 3 young kids, so I am very familiar with the journey of balancing work and life.
Physicians are some of the most intelligent and resilient humans and I love helping them reconnect with their power. I can’t wait to help you take control of your life, dream about what could be, and then make it happen.
Pete Baum, DO
I am a husband, father, outdoor enthusiast, life coach, and Family Medicine Physician in the greater San Diego, CA area.
Like many doctors, I burned out early on and wasn’t happy. Life coaching helped me to regain control of my life, one thought at a time. Yes, it’s that simple…
I can help you to work through and overcome burnout, self-doubt, and imposter “syndrome.” I will help you discover insights into your relationships and empower you to change so you can start showing up as you want to be. Whether it's money mindset, your financial goals, or starting a side-gig - we can tackle it! Every topic is coachable. Let’s get started!
Krystal Sodaitis, MD, MPH
Welcome! I am a board-certified pediatrician, fellowship-trained in academic general pediatrics. I transitioned from academic medicine to working for a health insurance company 7 years ago and I am currently a Senior Director.
I am a coach, pediatrician, wife, mother, health care executive and, life long learner. Externally I seemed to “have it all figured out” yet was filled with doubt, self-hatred and Imposter Syndrome. All that changed when she found coaching. I coach myself every day and use it as a leadership tool for my team and to nurture the leader in me.
Why do I love coaching gifted people? Because the smarter someone is the more likely they are to have an area that are NOT good at. This fact often causes a lot of stress, pain and anxiety. This is even more likely if they have a diagnosis that affects their ability to focus or learn. If this sounds like you, I’m your coach.
Elizabeth Chiang, MD, PhD
Call me Elisa, short for Elizabeth. I am a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon who has worked both in private practice as well as for a bureaucratic hospital system.
The hospital system, along with taking 24-7 call, resulted in burnout. Although I had the financial piece of the three pillars figured out, it took coaching and working on my mindset to overcome burnout. I dove into the world of personal finance and investing when I was in the grad school years of the MSTP (combined MD/PhD program) and set my mind toward FIRE before the term became popularized. I started investing in stocks and mutual funds as a graduate student. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I tackled real estate investing and flipped two houses before graduating medical school. I continue to invest in real estate both actively with rental property I self-manage and passively with syndications and real estate funds.
I can help you overcome burnout, get out of the trap of arrival fallacy, and build your path to financial independence while enjoying the journey to get there. I can’t wait to work on your money mindset or help you toward whatever goal you want to accomplish.
Adam Broussard, MD
Adam is a pediatric anesthesiologist, life coach, and investor. He has special interests in pediatric pain and resident education. He has worked in both academic and private practices.
When not at work, Adam spends his time with his wife, two sons (2.5 and 4 months), and two dogs. Adam is a budding real estate investor and entrepreneur.
He enjoys helping other physicians find better work life balance through defeating burnout, spending their time more effectively, and living the life that they want today.
Who is the creator of the Alpha Coaching Experience?
Jimmy's background as a husband, father, physician, and side-hustle extraordinaire led him through a dark and lonely road through burnout (and Grave's disease). His drug of choice to help him get through it all was an arrival fallacy - the idea that the "next" accomplishment would make him happy.
Through coaching, Jimmy was able to regain power and autonomy over his life. He now loves the journey (and the life he and his family live), and now helps other doctors do the same.
Jimmy is originally from Florida, but now lives in North Carolina where he practices academic anesthesiology. His wife Kristen is an educator, and they have three children. Jimmy is also the founder of The Physician Philosopher blog/podcast.
When not practicing anesthesia, Jimmy enjoys golf (don't confuse this for being "good" at golf!), working on The Physician Philosopher, hanging out with Kristen, and playing Chess and video games with his kids.
Jimmy Turner, MD
I would highly encourage anyone considering this course to take a leap of faith and enroll now. The value that you will receive will far exceed the time and money that you will spend on this course. Participating in the Alpha life coach course may be one of the best decisions I have ever made.
