According to the ADA Health Policy Institute, the average dentist currently retires just before they turn 69, although back in 2001 their average retirement age was about 65.
Do you want to be forced to practice into your late sixties because you don’t have the financial means to retire and enjoy the lifestyle you want? Will you be physically able to practice that long? Many of you have neck and back pain now.
Believe us, we know how hard you work. We bring you the Freedom Blueprint Workshop to give you the tools to control your retirement destiny. If you can achieve financial freedom with passive income, you have choices. If you enjoy practice, you can engineer it to fit your desired lifestyle without the financial pressure. If you want to leave daily practice, you can replace that income with cash flow investments that will replace your practice income. In either case, the Freedom Blueprint Workshop will help you design a plan with the tactics and strategy you will need to achieve your goals.
