Welcome to Business Innovators Magazine Dr. Marmur…What would you say is the area in business that you are most passionate about and why?
DM: Empowering doctors to become their best in the business of healthcare, brings me the most joy
BI: How are you different than your competitors?
DM: Doctors get little to none formal business and leadership training, and once they start practicing
they are too busy to take initiative. In this scenario, clinicians fall easy prey to insurance
companies and consulting firms. These companies often create dependence on their services,
rather than fostering long term doctor success. With no long-term commitments right success
coach, like myself, can make all the difference at a fraction of the cost.
BI: Please tell me about any recent business accomplishments that you are most proud of and
DM: One of my recent clients was on a brink of quitting a family practice. She was tired, frustrated, and discouraged after long days of dealing with insurance-driven practice. This doctor wanted a
change but was afraid of losing patients and staff. Instead, I coached her and her husband
through a transition to Direct Primary Care. To her surprised, 60% of the patients signed up for
the new practice model and her team cheered the change. I never saw someone so happy to
BI: What Leadership qualities in Leaders do you most admire and why?
DM: Action. While motivation and inspiration can make leaders strong people
managers, it’s the action that ultimately drives the respect and trust needed to be
BI: What has been a key element of your success?
DM: My success comes from constantly learning new skills and pushing myself
outside of my comfort zone. I read at least one non-fiction book a week and try to
acquire new skills all the time. These skills include web design, public speaking,
playing a new instrument, or learning a new language. It keeps my mind sharp
and my creative juices flowing.
BI: What are some of the business projects that you are currently working on that you are
excited about and why?
DM: Currently I’m working on a new lecture series addressing labor shortages and in
a strong economy. Paradoxically, historically low unemployment creates its own
set of problems for a business owner. Tight labor conditions create talent
shortages. These, in turn, requires an innovative approach in hiring, training, and
maintaining a highly skilled team.
BI: What are 1 or 2 things you would like to say to a prospective client who stumbles across this
DM: Commit to change. Without commitment, no action can be taken, and one will
only procrastinate indefinitely. Write down a list of goals you want to achieve,
actions you need to take, and then next to it list things that stop you from doing
it. Can you overcome these obstacles by yourself? If not, there is no better time
than now to start your coaching sessions.
BI: To wrap this up, what are you most excited about in the upcoming months in your business?
More lives changed forever. I have been so blessed by our business success
that I can only feel a sense of satisfaction seeing all my coaching clients
transforming their lives forever. There is no better feeling than seeing hard-working mother or a father having more time and resources to spend with his
family and enjoy their life.
