Episode 30 – Building Long Term Wealth In And Out Of Your Dental Practice with Dr. David Phelps

When you open your own practice, there are things you must commit to:

  • Long hours
  • Hard work
  • Sacrifice

Sadly, one of the biggest regrets dentists have is putting so much into the business that they don’t enjoy life outside of the office.

They go into the business thinking they’ll be able to enjoy life when they retire.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

There are many ways to create passive income streams (and make yourself replaceable so that you can enjoy that extra cash flow).

Dr. David Phelps specializes in helping dentists create a long term vision business (and their personal life). He then recommends ways to accumulate wealth through various sources.

He is also a former practice owner, and creator of Freedom Founders, a place where people learn how to manage profitability.
