Today, my good friend Barbara Stackhouse joins me on the show to talk about the Profit First system and how you can use it to stay on track, get ahead, and be less stressed. Barb is someone who has been in the industry a long time and has been helping dentists boost their revenue and profits. In this episode, she explains how she does this and what you can do to get started doing the same through a combination of wellness, accounting processes, and knowledge.
Through Barb’s story and insight, you will see her passion for helping others in their journey to freedom, profit, and impact. Listen in as she discusses how health is also an important component of finances (and everything we do in life) and shares why she became a board-certified natural health practitioner. You’ll gain a solid understanding of the Profit First system and how you can implement it into your own dental practice.
