The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Many of us are big on finding freedom in our lives and think that working hard, grinding it out, and making more money is serving our families really well. Although our intentions can be great and family-focused, this can be a tricky thing to navigate when it comes to time, being busy, and ultimately delegating out things that are crucial to the health and happiness of our families. In this episode, my good friend Jim Sheils joins me to talk about just this and how he found a way to put family first and make this time of life count.

It’s easy to let days, months, and years fly by—especially when we’re focused, motivated, and busy. Listen in as Jim shares how important it is to intentionally slow down and soak in the time we have right now. He gives us some incredible insight straight from his experience, as well as tools and resources we can use to make sure we’re making the most of the key years we spend with kids under our roofs.
