The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Richard James does what I do for dentists—but with attorneys. His focus is on helping attorneys learn how to run a real business while finding freedom personally and financially. His son, Michael Strauch, aims to empower entrepreneurs, and both men join us today to share some great insight and inspiration.

Listen in as Richard shares his journey into entrepreneurship and Michael opens up about his experience growing up in an entrepreneurial environment. You’ll learn the importance of being unafraid to fail, rapidly implementing what you learn, and much more from this father-son duo.
