I was inspired by a post earlier on, by the warm hearted @botoxjosh
coining the phrase "community over competition". We read it as the sun came up over our Dubai clinic, this morning - and nodded wholeheartedly at this message. Whilst our team love this industry and the sheer power it has to help individuals - it's also one of the most toxic we've experienced. Insecure competitors, sharpen knives and talk (for want of better terminology) absolute crap - and large genuine accounts like ours will often trigger all kinds of negativity.
It's not what were about at all. Never have been, never will be. Some of the best times in our industry, have been spent with my "greatest competitors", and yet we potentiate our power to learn when we share best experience with others. @drgalaharonov
I can see from our Beverly Hills window, yet there is not an ounce of competition between us, only respect. @lipdoctoraesthetics
is 5 miles down the road, let we have had a glass of wine and brainstormed re joint cleft clinics and best practice. @juliehornelips
is another lips giant, yet we cannot say enough good about her work. @skindoctorclinics
is incredible at tear troughs and we've learned so much from her. @leewalker_academy
is my mate and go to for those odd cases, and specialist knowledge. Why would we do anything but celebrate another strong and kind clinician?
This is real too. Not praise to appease followers, and then ignoring them to their face at conferences (y'all know who you are). This is nothing but high octane respect for them all as human beings, doctors, nurses and often friends. This is DMs, texts, laughs, stage sharing, waving and thumbs up at each others talks from the front row, and knowing we can contact each other freely for help. And isn't being as strong as we can for the patient what it's all about? What are you achieving, by being an asshole? You just get to go to bed, knowing you're kind of mean and could do better. Congratulations.
