Episode #437: Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

The Decathlon Dentist – Case Study of a Practice Transition – Kyle Francis, Bill Ladd, Jared Duckett

How do you know when to take some chips off the table? Who to sell to? When to sell? And how to do it. Joining the conversation today are Kyle Francis, a longstanding broker in the dental space, and Bill Ladd and Jared Duckett of Ladd Duckett CPAs, who specialize in dental consulting, accounting, and real estate. We take a case study and discuss how this situation is helpful for you as you figure out how to move forward.

This episode is a great way to take a look at the nuances of the decision tree that many of our dental colleagues are looking at today, or will look at tomorrow when it comes to practice transitions. You will hear about what variables need to be looked at and what the key contractual agreements are that have to be put into place. We will be taking a close look at what the actual purpose of the sale is for the business owner and what their real goals are.

P.S. Whenever you’re ready, here are some other ways I can help fast track you to your Freedom goal (you’re closer than you think) :

In this episode, we finish up the second part of my interview with Rob Swanson and his eight rules of investing. (If you haven’t listened to part 1, be sure to go back and give that a listen before jumping into this one.) Today, we pick up where we left off, covering rules four through eight and talking about everything from decision-making to cash flow and risk reduction.

Listen in as Rob shares his incredible insight and experience in real estate and investing to give us a few rules that help make our decisions and investments more solid. You will hear about the importance of looking at margins before buying and what boxes need to be checked when it comes to predicting a solid income stream. Rob also discusses how to define and mitigate the different risks involved so that you can come out on top.

Alastair MacDonald is a private advisor to established entrepreneurs, investors, and business owners, as well as a TEDx speaker who lectures on economic, social, and financial forecasts. Join me today to hear part two of our conversation at the Freedom Founders Mastermind, where we dive into the concept of certainty, how to hedge against a volatile economy, and why the abdication model is no longer one that works.

Listen in to learn the reasons why Alastair is not worried about consumer price inflation (and what he’s really worried about instead) and why the 401(k) is not always the investment that it is made out to be. You’ll learn why he is most concerned about the issue of division and polarity in the Western world, why your business is your best asset in a volatile economy, and how you can maintain its viability to weather the most intense economic storm.
