The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

The topic of recession is a big one and deals with something pretty far out of our control, but there are things we can do to ensure our businesses can deal with the stress they may be under when things get tight. Jake Conway is someone I have come to greatly appreciate for his insights and experience in business financial metrics. He started Custom Practice Analytics, where he really focuses on providing guidance and support to private practice owners, helping them thrive in their personal relationships with their team, seize opportunities in their practice, find solutions, and become more profitable.

Listen in as Jake shares the most important areas that you as a business owner should be focusing on in the next few months—and years—to build a recession-proof practice. You’ll learn the specific ways he is working with other practices to build their profitability and ensure that they have the structural and cultural stability to stand the test of time (and recession).
