The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

No one needs to be stuck in any sort of career their whole lives, and Dr. Paul Etchison is a perfect example of how you can blaze a path to a career that supports your passions and lifestyle. Paul joins the show today to share how putting yourself in the right position to grow and having the right mindset is key to succeeding in your practice.

Listen in as he discusses the role of passion in your work, as well as why it can actually be slow to develop. You’ll hear about Paul’s inspiring journey, from jumping into owning and growing his practice to how he found a way to make more time for himself and his family.
