Corruption. Leadership. And Personal Growth As A Dental Practice Owner – Episode 17

Corruption. Leadership. And Personal Growth As A Dental Practice Owner – Episode 17

Today’s guest has seen it all.

Marilee Sears comes from a “dental household” and watched her father run his dental practice as she grew up…

Which gives her a unique advantage and perspective.

Nowadays, Marilee uses her strengths to specifically help dentists put the right systems in place so they can focus on what’s really important: work, family, and friends.

Marilee helps dentists through private and group coaching to break through the 7 figure mark while reducing stress and making the process as fun as possible.

Today’s bonus: Exclusive access to Marilee’s “The Future Of Dentistry” Interviews (not available anywhere else). Click here to get those now.

Here are a few things you’ll discover in today’s episode:

  • How Marilee’s father played a HUGE role in her becoming the “systems” person to dentists across the world.
  • The thing that was said in front of dental students at a local event that upset the industry (and the problem posed by corporate dentistry having a presence in dental schools)
  • Why it’s a GOOD thing that the dental industry is highly competitive (and why you can still make a ton of money if you go about it the right way)
  • Natural leadership as a dentist. Is it natural or a teachable skill?
  • The breakthrough moment Marilee had that reshaped her career, business, and life.
  • One of the biggest ways to get further as a dental practice owner (and why this was the best investment Marilee and I have made).
  • What sets apart the dentists who succeed from those who don’t

Free Episode Bonus:

Marilee hosts a show of her own, called “The Future Of Dentistry”, but handles it a little differently than I do this podcast.

For instance, you can’t get your hands on these interviews anywhere.

Marilee was extremely generous during our interview and decided to give exclusive access to all 23 of her interviews, just for Ambitious Dentists.
