Expanding The Horizons Of Your Life w/Brett Levine EP 372

Dr. Brett Levine is an ENT surgeon and serves as the CEO of Beach Cities ENTS in Torrance, California. He is also the founder of Breaking Out of the Medical Mindset. He has authored the book, “How to Join, Buy, Or Merge A Physician's Practice”.

In 2012, Brett began to notice an imbalance in his life that he could no longer ignore. Working more hours than ever and craving more for his life, he realized that everything he had done to succeed in medicine was not helping him succeed in life. Listen from Brett about how to break out of the boxes that people live in and redefine the identity that he viewed himself with for so many years.


Brett says “The opportunities to learn and grow ourselves are limitless. Keep yourself open to learn and look at people who are living lives that you want to live and learn from them.”

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
