Episode #239: Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Alan Stern DDS - Better, Richer, Stronger

The decisions you make put you where you need to be in your career—or they keep you from it. Today Alan Stern joins me on the show as a self-anointed late bloomer who has figured out the key to getting past perfectionism to create a better, richer, and stronger life and practice. He discusses the business decisions that got in the way of his success and how he was able to reach a better place.

From a perceived loss of status to a major jump in cash flow and business, Alan was able to realize the importance of community, self-reflection, and perspective. Listen in as he shares how dental school unintentionally sets us back, why we shouldn’t let money be a limiting factor, and valuable tips on how to get your clients and your team on the right track.

Minute Markers:

2:43 – How Alan turned his practice and his life around.

6:58 – Why Monday morning doesn’t have to suck.

9:10 – What makes us diminish ourselves and hide things—and how that can change.

17:02 – How Alan was able to eliminate money as a limiting variable in his life.

19:53 – What he learned about hiring poorly and having to let people go.
