medical doctors and practitioners
If you want to make bank, go to med school.

Are you surprised? I don't think so. Even though CEOs pull in a pretty penny, doctors make even more.

Look at the photo on the left. Those people sporting scrubs and stethoscopes bring home fatter paychecks than those donning suits. And you can see the hard numbers in the chart above. 

Hard data says that these salaries will only grow in the future. 

What's that you say? You need more patients for your practice. You've spent all those years and money to get where you're at. But you're still not earning the income you desire. 


It's not that you haven't tried. You've place ads in the local papers and business directories. You've even joined local business associations and given a few speeches. Still, that surge of patients hasn't happened.  


I bet you even have a web site. You paid the local high school whiz kid to put something up on the internet. But that was about it. You're not even sure if it is even worth it. But that would be a big mistake. You would be leaving a lot of money on the table.
