20/20 Money Episode 26 – Eye Moonlight as a Podcast Host: The Careers of Drs. Roya Habibi & Jimmy Deom

May 6, 2019

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show are Drs. Jimmy Deom and Roya Habibi.

This conversation is a great one because, in addition to both being practicing optometrists, Jimmy and Roya are co-hosts of the popular optometry podcast Try Not To Blink, which I was actually privileged enough to be a guest on a couple of weeks ago. In this episode, we talk about each of their paths in optometry and their chosen specialties, what’s different about optometry than they anticipated coming into the profession, some of the biggest lessons they’ve learned while practicing, and how they’re setting themselves apart in each of their practices by incorporating leadership skills. We also touch on something that I’ve personally encountered and is seeming to pop up in other conversations I have with professionals…something called imposter syndrome. We talk about what it is, why it happens, and how to deal with it. Towards the end of the conversation, we talk about how Try Not To Blink was started and what it’s meant for each of their careers.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 15min pre-discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or download our popular ebook called “Five Tips to Financial Freedom for Optometrists.”

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Drs. Roya Habibi and Jimmy Deom.
