Today's guest, Dr. Nii Darko, explains how he chose a different path after medical school and became a freelance surgeon. Hear why that made sense and even how he and his wife have built their family around this idea.
We can often get stuck in thinking life only has one-lane roads, but if we slow down and look for those hidden turns, we can find a life built from the ground up unique to us and designed and wired for success.
