Dr. Pamelar Hale has returned to the podcast, this time with her colleagues Dr. Keith True and Dr. George Melillo. Together, these veterinarians bring decades of experience and a shared passion for vet owned clinics and veterinarian leadership in the field.
The wealth in the industry is more often not going to veterinarians but instead to corporations, and while corporations have a place in the field, these three want vets to know it’s time to take control and it’s okay to prioritize wealth building.
Often veterinarians ride the saying, “I didn’t get into it for the money”. That’s often true, but Dr. Melillo wants vets to know you can have it all. You can be kind, compassionate, intelligent, AND build generational wealth that will impact your career, family, and community for the better.
There are many paths to leadership opportunities depending on the desires and capacity of each veterinarian, whether it be full ownership, co-ownership, or even hybrid practices.
Dr. True emphasizes the importance of taking control and being honest about what you want your career to look like. And Dr. Hale and Dr. Melillo remind vets that the pursuit of happiness is important, and money and building wealth are tools for that.
These three veterinarians have a great perspective when it comes to veterinary leadership and building wealth to positively impact the industry. These conversations are so important for the field.
