The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

This week, (similar to last week) I’m going to take you inside the special project I’ve been working on, and give you some things to think about when it comes to formal education vs. “street smarts”. And share why real-life experience—learned while you’re doing it and being around other people who can share their thoughts and insights—is so important to your success in business.

Listen in as I talk about my personal journey and how real-life experience was so valuable in my development. You’ll hear the biggest learning experiences that stood out and the important aspects that went into my success in business, as well as investing.
