The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Today I share a conversation that I recently had with Austin Hair, managing partner of Leader’s Real Estate. Leader’s Real Estate helps healthcare partners, providers, and operations with their commercial real estate needs. In the first part of this two-part conversation, you will hear about my freedom journey and how crisis became my path to freedom in my 40s.

Listen in as Austin and I chat about my initial entry into real estate investing and some of the key lessons that can be learned from that era in the markets. We also discuss interest rates and the changes that have happened over the years. As the markets and real estate arenas shift, it’s important to have an understanding of the past and what got us to where we are now in order to have the most discernment moving forward.
