What if you look at your dental practice as the economic engine that drives the personal financial success for you and your team? This course will emphasize aspects of practice management AND financial strategies proven to ensure your wealth accumulation.
Learning Objectives:
Identify clearly where you are in your own financial life cycle
Understand your practice’s economic engine, existing financial reporting and how to strategically maximize your “nest egg”
Explore the Prosperity Formula and its 5 components
Understand debt and its true cost for your advantage
