    As a Doctor turned full time Entrepreneur, I found myself floating about an unfamiliar world with little in the way of advice or contacts. I was totally blown over by just how much Dr Meyers and SOPE helped me out - especially considering that I am from Sri Lanka, a country on the opposite side of the globe ! If you are a Doctor-Entrepreneur or considering a career in that direction, I wholeheartedly recommend that you speak to Dr Meyers and become a member of SOPE. In fact, I hope to introduce a few other like minded colleagues of mine very soon !
