The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Many people are so busy treading water that they miss the opportunity to do something big. In this episode, Dr. Mark Costes joins me to talk about how to avoid falling into that trap. As someone with incredible insight and experiences, Mark will open up about how failure shaped him and prepared him for massive success.

Listen in to learn how he broke free from the mindset of failure avoidance, as well as the massive importance of making mistakes. You’ll discover how to learn from each mistake, how to move forward after messing up, and how to prepare yourself to handle future missteps by surrounding yourself with the right people.
