The Mindset to Change Your Life’s Direction, w/ John Brontsema

My whole life was dedicated to baseball from an early time. People say, “Don’t put your identity,” or “You’re not a baseball player. That’s not your identity.” It really is though. While it’s not, it feels like it, because every decision I made, everything I was passionate about was baseball and achieving the next level.



The Business of Plastic Surgery with Dr. Richard Brown | TSIS #113

Brown Plastic Surgery owner, and author of The Real Beauty Bible, Dr. Richard Brown, joined us on The SKYLER IRVINE Show. 

Dr. Brown was born in Georgia and attended school there. Starting as a communications major, he realized his passion for science and changed gears to go to medical school. In this episode, Dr. Brown speaks about the lessons he learned from medical school, including seeing a patient through till the end of their treatment even when you are tired, and it is easy to pass it off to a colleague. 

After being given a practice, Dr. Brown decided he wanted to set himself apart from other plastic surgeons and build relationships with those who come in. He wants to be authentic as possible on Instagram so his patients feel a connection with him before they even get to know him. A lot of people and surgeons on social media tend to manipulate photos to their benefit. Celebrities tend to this, and it has an extreme impact on the plastic surgery business. This is something Dr. Brown does not want to do. On the show, Skyler and Dr. Brown discuss building a medical business and how it differs from other business, being authentic to your “why”, and using social media to expand awareness. Dr. Brown’s book, The Real Beauty Bible, is available on Amazon for purchase.
