Freedom Starts in the Heart: Learning to Truly Resolve Conflict for a Healthier Life
Are there issues and conflicts in your life that have you feeling like you're stuck, static, or simply standing still. Are you feeling conflicted? While conflict is part of our daily lives, and it's only natural that differences will arise, still few of us feel confident solving conflict in a healthy way that truly works for us. So, we shoulder the strain as it takes it’s toll on our wellness... but there is a better way... a path of knowledge, practices, and mindset to resolve the conflict within, rise about the anxiety, and loosen ourselves from struggle. It starts with our hearts - what we believe about others, how we practice communication, our approach to conflict resolution and our ability and willingness to forgive. Come take a journey through these steps and more for a lighter, more hopeful heart, and a healthier life. Thank you!

Are you or your spouse stressed about practice finances?
Does your spouse feel like they are on a treadmill and has mentioned they think they may never actually retire due to changes in the medical profession?There are some unique financial concerns and strategies for physicians and physician families. We are not always taking advantage of tax loopholes or perhaps are not vigilant about all that we should be. Retired Medical Oncologist, Scott Dunbar, speaks on lessons he learned on these topics and strategies he's like to share with physician families to lighten the financial and psychological burden many physicians and physician families have have in common.

If you are managing your own practice, or your spouse's practice, we have changed this talk to a lunch hour timeframe for our meetup. Join us as Dr. Dunbar talks about investment and money issues that affect all of our families!
I will focus on investing in a way that helps to remove emotions from investing decisions.
We offer a strategy that results in higher yields consistently, with lower risk and lower costs than most money manager platforms. Of course I have to say past performance cannot tell future returns and there is an inherent risk in the stock market.
We offer a complimentary review of your finances and investments, we are able to offer an hour review with our CPA. We also offer an appointment with an estate planning attorney, both of those are complimentary as well.
I want to help doctors and their families develop a cohesive investment plan that can help shape a retirement plan. Knowing you can retire, even if you don’t choose to is very liberating.
If you are without a plan, getting one set up can allow you to have the power of time and the miracle of compound interest on your side.
Do you know what a fiduciary is, are you paying phantom income tax, have you heard of Dalbar?
Successful investing involves some education and that is a very important in our firm.
Scott Dunbar M.D.
As an avid fly fisherman from New England, I followed a lifelong calling to become a physician. My family has been very supportive of my career throughout.
My practice was in hematology and medical oncology in Ft. Myers, Florida for 15 years.
After retiring from clinical practice in 2016, I realized an interest in the world of finance. I have since become a Fiduciary/Financial Advisor with Vimvest Advisors in Sarasota, Florida.
Within me lives a passion to help people. My desire lies in guiding them to avoid the pitfalls and decisions that can have a major impact on their investments and financial future.
When it comes to healthcare professionals, I have an especially keen interest in advising my peers to make the best decisions for their situation, as well as protecting their future through informed investment choices.
