The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

After reading his book on retirement planning, I knew that Mart McClellan had to come on the podcast and share his unique perspective on finance and creating an effective retirement plan. Today Mart joins the show to explain how common misconceptions and bad advice in finance can be detrimental to your plans. He also offers tips and ideas that will help you build retirement savings earlier and faster.

Listen in as Mart discusses how he discovered his interest in finance—and found so much success that he had to bring what he learned to the dentistry world. You’ll learn the most important ways we should be keeping our money in motion and working for us, big myths that we shouldn’t buy into, and how to make our money gain velocity.
