"The opportunity to Give."

"Clayton Overton is a California orthopedic surgeon. When his malpractice insurance jumped in one year from $7,000 to $25,000, he and Charlotte took a serious look at starting a business. Both had graduated from Tulane University in Louisiana and would need to return to the more reasonable insurance rates of their home state unless they could earn more. "We were building a new home at the time and realized we couldn't afford it," Clayton recalls. "When friends and relatives laughed and said this business wouldn't work or 'you can't do it anyway,' we just had to make it work," adds Charlotte, who was a teacher. One year later, she was working their business full time. The Overtons travel for business often now. Clayton loves medicine, and thanks to the business does not need to put in 80-100 hours a week as he used to. "When he's in the office," says Charlotte, "he carries a light patient load, which makes it fun." When one son graduated from medical school, before he began his residency Clayton took him to Bhutan for several weeks, where Clayton volunteered his surgical skills. Bhutan, situated high in the Himalayas, has only thirteen doctors and no orthopedic surgeons at all. Clayton took equipment with him to the country, and left it as a contribution.
