The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

I recently had an incredible conversation with Dustin Burleson, a thought leader, coach, mentor, and colleague in the orthodontics space for over 12 years. Today, you will hear our discussion about what led to me starting Freedom Founders, how important it is to take on investing and wealth-building yourself, and more.

Listen in to hear about some of the problems and drawbacks of the popular 401(k) model, as well as how wealth-building and investing are not as hard as some people may have you think. You’ll learn how to orchestrate it more yourself and how to get into the high-net-worth mindset. (And this is just the first part of our info-packed conversation, so be sure to stay tuned for part 2 next week!)
