Hi i'm dr grace yelm and i'm the founder of mommy denison business. It is a private facebook group with over eight thousand moms. That are dentist all over the us. A and also in other parts of the world. When i started it back in june of two thousand seventeen a lot of the members said. Hey grace maybe you should have your own podcast to be honest. I didn't even know what a podcast was. Let alone listen to any podcast. So i started asking people. Hey do you the gas de. Listen what do you listen to what he listened about. And what are you listening to. And the more people has the more people were telling me that they listen to podcasts. And i was oddly. The only one not listening to podcasts. I didn't even know how to make one in one of the people that i had to ask was at the time. A babysitter who i said. Hey do you pack as you said yes and i know how to make them and said you do and that is how the mommy denison business. Podcast started so in late november. Two thousand seventeen. I started the podcast. And since then we've released over one hundred thirty episodes and counting with topics ranging from dentistry parenting and lifestyle. We've incorporated a lot of material. Twenty twenty introduced us to lots of new friends and gave us time for catching up with old friends. Making our tap episodes of the year episode number ninety with the orthodontist. Dr jean ludi sharing goal setting strategies for success and episode. Ninety eight with dr. Kimberly williams a pediatric neuropsychologist and clinical psychologist discussing covid nineteen and managing all the mental health. Related stresses in adults and children as a result.

Our listeners are not only mommy dentists but people in the dental industry and friends who loved to hear all about the different topics especially a personal trainers. We've got a couple of people on talking experts. I should say talking about nutrition and exercise so those have been very fun so i am just thrilled at the way. Our podcast is going and as an aside. Many of the top podcasts are hosted by men in given that the profession is over fifty percent woman in growing. I'm so glad to be one of the female podcasters out there. As a board certified pediatric dentist leading and paving the way for other females on us to join the podcasting world. And i'm just excited. That i have this opportunity to share mommy.

And i- career is going to the voices of dentistry podcast convention and i missed last winter because we were snowed in. We had some terrible weather. But the year before that i took my team to arizona and got to meet allan mead mark costas and a lot of the other friendly podcasters and that was such a great time and i haven't had that much in a convention at a dental meeting in a really long time so i'm so sad that we won't be meeting because of coronavirus 'cause i was really looking forward to it but i really wanted to share a few clips from the podcast convention and the mommy denison business. We call them end as we'd like to have fun wherever we go and we were able to pull people and do a quickfire challenge. We like to throw questions at people and they need to answer them.

Social media website That really helped everyone feel at ease in returning country oncho k- and then throughout this time. I know you did something with like stuck me about that. You partnered up with like you did like a cosmetic day type of thing with talks right. Yeah so you know for all of our mommy. Dennis visits events for twenty twenty. We did cancel on reschedule them into the new year like twenty twenty one but one event we did not was the bow talks. The talks event was very easy to put together. Only six doctors. You know so small They felt safe. Incoming spread out so that one was a lot of fun in the new york. Academy officials fedex. They would send their instructors and all the materials and we we brought models in so that doctors could practice a practice each other And that was super fun. It's always a really popular popular. Course okay so. This was per mommy. The the group right. Yes yes okay. I thought you were doing this for like the community. You know what i mean like. Now oh but you can write. You can use that what you learn from that in your community cure. Would you be able to like how would you know yeah. I sat for patients. Yeah because i mean. I know you said it was six dentists. Right six practice yes dentists and then is there any specific protocols like chicago's needs to follow for events or anything like that. Can people gather more than fifty. Or no i believe in chicago. Yes they can get fifty. Gotcha gotcha okay. That's interesting. I didn't know missile that the group offers courses like that. you know. yeah yeah so then.

"You need to know how to run their production collections. Each month You need to know how to like. Print out your a are. And if you have multiple specialties in your office you need to dissect out like for me. I have a pedo ortho practice so it was a setting out. Pedo ortho You need to know like your monthly reports and how to collect all the nuns monthly numbers and after you close out the month and then you have to reconcile that and then you need to know how many new patients month getting you should know it and you need to know the data like what percent of your practice like if your general to know what percent of your practice. Endo what percent of your practices pedo present is implants like you need to be able to operate things down. You need to be able to say numbers But you really need to know how to do. All of that provider air totals just things like if you were going to buy actors. What would you Gotcha question ask yourself like. What would i want to see if i wanted to buy a practice. So the main reason you transitioned out just soldier practices was mainly to grow this right. Mommy facebook group and the dentist businesses and right mommy facebook membership and everything. So gimme gimme some advice on like what if what would you recommend right. If let's just say somebody who who. I was in dental school associated for maybe year. My dream has always been a practice. I'm owning a practice. And i'm freaking burnt out like it's been two years. I'm not even breaking even like It's it's taken a toll. It's taking a toll on everything my personal life. My you know what i mean. It's just everything's negative. I wake up not great and the thought of man just going in and getting a paycheck and then clocking out. It sounds so nice. Should i transition out or sell or billing now. Michael suck it up and make this work. Right what what would you recommend to do. Like a deep dive. Unlike what makes you happy and what you need financially. If you're really really feeling stuck that. I say need to get like a coach or consultant to come in at help you Because burn out israeli real and there's a lot of people that feel burnt out and they wanna quit and if it's if it's to that point if you have no passion no interest you're not letting it get out you can see it right. Yeah i mean why torture yourself like if you don't like a you know you're not a tree you can move. Yeah because i've we talk with some startups. Who who feel like that. Who do feel like it's been three years. It's been five years and having broken even it's a miserable and then we ask the question like okay. How would you feel if you were profitable on my gosh. I'd love it. That'd be the dream you know So is it more. So and yeah they. They've hired coach is not the right ones. But i don't know what would the scenario be there. What were the issue is like. Yeah just give it up because you grew. You grew to hate it so some fired. You know what. Here's the thing on. Not all dennis from it to be business owners. Not not all dentist. If you're at the five year mark and you're not breaking even i would wanna why You know three to five years is usually long. It takes to break even but i would want somebody to be breaking even at least three or four. But if you're at your five and you're not breaking when you're doing there's something wrong and if you have coaches or consultants and you're still not then i would say that. Maybe perhaps you're better suited to be dentists like you know you show up to your work and go home and some dentists associates make a lot more money than business owners mistress to rent less stress bide. I think that you have to reevaluate. And it's not a pride thing Your forte your strengths. May just be that you know what you are better off being technician you are the dentist and there's nothing wrong with clean and associate working under somebody As an awesome dentist but the business ownership is a whole nother ballgame and running a successful business while practicing is difficult. Yeah you're absolutely right going back to when you went to the year two thousand and nineteen when you went to some of these events right where you saw the ceo's of companies eso's and things like that right Was there a common thing that you saw between them. Every single see that you spoke with that sold their business. They have like a specific method or train like doing they train their mine and they're all different but they do require the most of them are higher than you stay on for like two three years to transition the practice But they all have differences stages have to kind of figure out where the differences are. And what would be a better fit for you. Gotcha gotcha okay. So then in in the time that you i mean i guess you put it on the market anonymously in january saturday january. So you were still working in your practice and running. How was that. How were you trying to not survive but like thriving in during the pandemic when it was like at its peak peak. What was happening so when we open we did surveys of each practice. We threat service to parents on. We wanted to know how safe felt like communication is really important and for me being pedo ortho you know. The parents were not worried about their children coming to the office unless they had some severe medical condition but they wanted to come in you know but obviously colored safe and they wanted to know what are coated protocols. They want to so the main. I think the most important part of communicating with parents was having a robust website with a cova tab that key Or at least that was key when we opened the patient enter the girls on the front. The answer phones. It was such a long list that the memories everything so it would save just referred to the websites. Please check out our protocols on our website and drew everyone to the website so they can read the protocols. Read what we're doing. And then we put up signs on our front door in the office and that made people feel better. Do you still have that. Like protocol people wanted to look at in kind. Kinda like yeah. It's up there. Wow okay so then that and then when you did you have to furlough anybody now so i laid off everybody and then when it was time to come back you know every everyone. My team came back except for one person. Oh i didn't not do. They not comeback unemployment or childcare. And that's been a like a thing that a lot of people have been noticing. Well okay and so it. Wasn't that hard to get people to come back.

"I hustled and now. I get to reap the benefits. You know. i'm i'm getting a return on my harvest is so to speak and it was all worth it and i know people are always like you need to smell the roses. Yuko and all that. And i'm like wall now. I can smell the roses at forty four. And i still have plenty of time to to other things my career and that was my goal and it was all worth it. It was all worth it. Gonci half okay. Yeah because i mean it still like you. You really did. And here's the thing. I think in greece. In maybe you can Let me know a little bit more about this. Like some people get lost in that right say they start going through all the nooks and crannies of of their business right but do you feel like sometimes there's them in tallahassee where like it's nobody can do better than me. Oh my god. There's a patient that complain. Why wasn't there now. I got to step in and then you know what i mean. They're just like a stuck in part where they're like. I know everything about the business. And i can't really transition out you. Yeah i think that's when you need to have a good team you need to have a good team and you and transitioning out isn't just like a snap of a finger At it took me a whole year. All of two thousand nineteen to research and get ready. And then i finally decided in january twenty twenty till list high practices not honestly on the chicago dental society website for me twenty nineteen after ten years of ownership. I hired a coach and my coach helped me to identify okay. How to get my practices ready. Had to get me ready. And so i was prepared and so when i posted and was ready to sell. It wasn't so emotional like it wasn't dry. Make the right decision. Because i took a whole year to make this decision and get ready And that's what you have to do. I think you need you need to surround yourself with people that can help you. Guide you The right coaches to mentor. You and. I'm so blessed that i do have people around me and i had one of my mentor. She was like you know. You want to sell at your peak. You know you don't want to wind down and then cut that to working one day a week and then realize the practice is producing. And then you don't get what you want out of it. And so i was like i took that into consideration and i was like you know what i'm gonna do that. I'm going to sell a high. And i'm going to sell it when it's worth a lot of money and i will be happy that way if i wanna go back and open up another rectus or business or work for somebody else or sound like if i really miss clinical dentistry than i can always go back at some capacity and start working somewhere but i i really welcome the break on. What's really funny. Is that twenty twenty. When i listed in january who knew the pandemic was gonna hit in march you know. I walked out of my office. March seventeenth tuesday and i said to my staff team. I'll see you in two weeks. It's just a temporary quarantine and that turned into like two and a half months You know so during that quarantine He no. I wasn't sheriff. Anyone was still going to be committed to buying the practices. I in june. You know since january to june. I had over twenty inquiries narrative on three And then worked from there so it was great. It took me nine months to close during a pandemic run a little bit. Who was the you know what i'm asking. Who is the coach that you hired to help you with. This coach was jennifer pierce o. Jennifer she's been on the show. She's so cool. Yeah yeah she's really okay so she helped you transition out. What research did you do in two thousand and nineteen that you would like for example. Let's say hey. I'm pretty much my peak right now and i've been thinking to transition out and sell it but it's just the thought that i thought of last night. Like what research would you recommend. I do well. I would say start by trying to find books to read for me now. I'm in the tunnel. Facebook group. So i started reading and different dental facebook groups I actually at last year chicago. The midwinter meeting Was invited to a panel like an all day discussion with the esso's check out to meet ceos of several different. Dsl and talk to that and During cocktail hour. I went and talked to a lot of people who've already sold their businesses and asked what it took. Take get it ready. I asked what kind of reports do i need. What are they gonna ask her. What are they gonna look for. You talk to my accountant. Who's done transaction with his previous clients. I talked to lawyers. So i talked to like everyone. You know you. You need a good lawyer. You need the accountant. But what it comes down to is that you need to know your business inside out like you need to know the nitty gritty. You need to know what every single night on your pianolas for you need to know what every charging your credit cards for. You need to have a really clean book like clean accounting you in for me I was always the one doing my payroll up until last year. I paid all my bills. I didn't have a bookkeeper and office manager doing it. I paid all the bills. I did all my payroll because i needed to know where my money was. Goi and keep tracking ensure you lose sight of like maybe little details like the two hundred dollar charge. Every month from henry shine because of the detrick software. But you have an idea of cash flow in cash flow out in what your expenses are and that is so important. And i think a lot of people don't g down or they just rely on somebody else to do that. And on the ask somebody s you. Hey you know what. I saw this Nine hundred fifty dollars a month charged. What it says is like That's not varieties and it's volkswagen and that one is the car that i least So that i could travel between the two offices so you need to know how to answer the questions but you need to also know how to run reports like you can't just rely on your office manager. You know during the time of the transaction. I never once head to ask somebody to do something for me. Like i was able to print out my reports. I was able to get what i needed. If it couldn't i would just call. The software company asked to walk me through of it so. I think that it's really important that you know how to do things your numbers. How did you run. Reports like Software company or suffered us. So i used den tracks and You have to know. Had iran your click. They are all your associates..

"Only focusing my attention on mommy denison business and growing that and i've decided to The pivot and avenue calling and it was time. I was getting signs. It was just time for me to move on And i'm really happy with the decision. That i made and i was able to sell my two practices to another Private pediatric dentists with that are two partners and do not use a broker I just was able to do it on my own. and it. it came out wonderfully. And i'm very pleased while so you just walk me through that whole process from the moment you decided to to sell both of them right. You said yes. Ma'am so scary isn't it. is i. Guess the scary thing to be like. Hey this isn't the main source of mine income You know honestly. I'm not scared of it. I feel like. I'm in a place. Where fortunately i am not financially strapped So i can. I can do this. You know and have to be following My passion have to be treated myself. And i felt like i have the opportunity. Why not take it. And i get to spend more time with the kids and i i miss it but i'm also really looking or two am excited about just focusing attention on mommy. Denison business and growing at god. How did your team take it. When did you let them know. How far in advance did you let them know. I didn't i told them. After the fact and it was something i decided to do. Just because i was in i was one hundred percent. Sure if it was gonna happen and you never know until the contractor or the green at signed and when the money hits your account. So i didn't want to tell them because sometimes deals blow up at the last minute and why get them upset or nervous. If it didn't pull through so i told them later after after it will happen. How did he take it. We're in shock. A lot of them had depressed a lot of different emotions going from shock. Sad halley angry upset disappointing. Ed hurt i mean. I think a lot of them were hurt by my decision because i didn't tell him advanced but You know i told them why and they understood. And you know i in my opinion in any job. Any office. setting. Everyone's replaceable including the doctor. I replaced myself so The emotions were very mixed and I'd have to say that like we're still processing it. You know it's still. Fresh coverage is couple of weeks ago. You said right so september fourth is when we closed it was right after labor day. Weekend okay right before labor day weekend. Okay in your last day happened already or not yet. Yeah no i. I basically decided well not decided i asked you know the new owners if they needed me to stay and they said no and i said okay so they didn't want me to are needing to stay and i basically built the practices so that they would run themselves. And that had already transitioned a lot of my patients over to my associates and You know when you have a business model where you're not seeing patients in your associates are are the ones working you can sell it faster and you're not you don't have as many like bound freezer like any ties and so i felt that it was a good decision and we. We've done so then you. How long did you own these two practices for the i owned four eleven years. But mind you. I was about an associate for four years everywhere. I mean i had in that for years. I had three or four jobs in different offices. I at one point lived in california newport beach and business associate fair on. So i was i. Highly recommend people were before they take on ownership. Because there's a lot to learn. And when i was opening up my practice i mean i was ready to go. I really just was ready and that practice you know. We celebrated eleven years in august and the second practice is almost six years old in december So yeah fan for. Wow wow okay. So then i mean you said you created the systems in the business models that so they're not dependent on you grind. Did you start making that transition or did you always know how to do that. Did you always know like growing your practice is like i know exactly how to you know what i mean like not be dependent on me or when did you start switching. What was the main systems. You implemented rear like oh this is gonna affect me in the long run in a positive way before i opened my practice It was always a goal. It was always my goal that i would have businesses that ran without me and i always you know for example like while you don't see the founder of subway making sandwiches every day you don't see the founder of united airlines on airplane everyday working it. You don't see the ceo and finder founder of mcdonalds flipping burgers every day And they may have at one point don it you know by for me. I started industry. You know when. I was eighteen. And i worked every job in the office. I mean i did it all. I learned every single area. You know and i know job was beneath me. I mean i did everything from running out the garbage cleaning bathroom answering phones. Filing insurance filing folders you know back then there was not visual you pull charts pouring model sterilization girl working my way up to cheer site assistant working the front desk. I mean i did everyday working a marketing with the doctors. Working on Lunch lunch and learns advertising going and doing offs of gift baskets and i. I learned every single looking. Grammy of the dental office Being front desk as well. Which front desks you for. A lot of tennis is a mystery. And when you don't have that experience it's a disadvantage to you as a business owner a set out the goal of being like i wanna have businesses that run without eventually but i knew that in the beginning with me i needed to be the one producing. I need to be the brand. I need to be the marketing person you know. I needed to build enough patience to support multiple doctors and my goal. Was you know by the time. I can hester family a wanted to be able to have associates seeing my patients so that i could be home you know during maternity leave and not worry and that was really the turning point because now my patients had to see doctors you know they always requested me after only dockery. I'm only but you know what dr mature doctrine comes on maternity. You have the other doctor okay. And then once they got used to. That i started to wean down my schedule. You is to work six days a week. I used to work. Monday through saturday I had a really strong work ethic and even now like you know. We only take two two weeks off one in the summer one in the winter. It's not because it's not designed. Because i want i don't wanna take more. It's that is just alley Young yeah but now it's like now it's like you know what my thirties was the most dynamic decade of of my life. You know. I'm forty four and i look at my thirties. My thirties is one. I built my empire walk the walk. Talk the talk..

"Grace. How's it going. I'm great thanks for having me on again. Thank you thank you for coming on. And and being a part of this we had you on on episode one thirty two. I don't know when that was like what time of the year but things have changed. Things have changed since then. So i'm excited to but before that what's changed since then let's just assume it's been two years ago right okay. How has the podcast grown. How has mommy dentists business. Grown i mean i feel like you. You skyrocket you know. We just grew really really fast. I don't know how it's all word of mouth and it's been amazing. It's been a great resource. it's been a great grew. i have to say that. The pandemic wrigley showed the strength of the group. And so that was amazing. Gosh you what was the strength of the group. I would say the strength being that we pulled together. You know we. Everyone pulled our resources together. We are able to secure. Ppe we were able to do all of our our our ce's in men just helping each other run our businesses getting our p. d. p. loans and all of it it it just seems so overwhelming by with despite the group. We were able to understand what we were supposed to do with our employees had our lay them off for low them the differences. How to get them back on making sure we're doing everything properly and so it was fast like everything happened. So fast know we had osha experts on. We had air purifying experts on. We were just as soon as we were able to open. We were all able to open god. do it correctly. Yes gotcha gotcha okay. And then i wanted to know so like for the listeners. Who don't probably know what is mommy. Dentists and business. So how how did it come about. And then what is it so It's basically an online facebook group. That is a support group for mobster and dentistry. And it's been three years. I can't believe it so fast and It's been so amazing to see how the need was there for it. People come and tell me. They're only on feast with just for the group which is so flattering so amazing to hear that and people often say you know that the group gives them more resources than other organizations that they are part of that makes me really proud One thing that. I have to say that i think it makes or what makes the group successful is at the speed in which were able to obtain information and when we were looking for guidance from our state dental societies or cd steer you know the bigger organization. It just took a lot of time to get it from them. I mean they were able to give it to us but we were able to get information faster just amongst us and that was really impressive. John okay. So then can is is like a a group anybody can join or just has moms or do you have to. I'm a stickler on twitter about who can join the group. It's strictly you have to be a mother. Someone in the house needs to call your mom and you have to be dentist. Any ever license and In business i mean it was essentially for business owners by we kind of hold that loosely on my because some business owners and up selling becoming associates but have been in business for twenty seven years at can give valuable advice. We kinda hold that loosely. The to real strict things are that you have to be a mom and to Be a dentist and we do have a smaller subset I mean the facebook group is over. Seven thousand five hundred women but we also have some another group a subscription business that if you want resources you have to pay for them and we call that the official members and so that's like an annual price our fee and You can get group discounts. You get discounted equipment. Supplies free c e. I'm we put on like ours and you can even get see for our podcast so We are gdp certified and so that's a really cool thing and and as ashes dental related. I mean we do have other things that we can provide such as lifestyle anything to help. Enhance the business. So that's what we're about. That's what we're doing and we're continuing to grow. And so it's it's been amazing. I have to say. I'm really proud of of of the trajectory and how it's ground thus far. Yeah yeah i noticed like Your podcast right. It is Overall type of wellness. Because i remember listening to somebody. Talk about nutrition right. And that's that's been my background for the longest time. And so. When i was listening to it i was like manna brings back. You know what. I mean like an interesting. I feel like a lot of us. We don't take that especially as business owners into accountable because we like focus on the nutrition of business right instead of the nutrition of ourselves But that was interesting. That was really really good episode. So then the asking you know you mentioned in the group. There's people who were business owners and other associates guaracy. Why of course you know some are like you know. I've i've decided that. I don't need to be an owner. Ernie warm slowing down. I'm selling it to my associate Or are they are they have some kind of life change maybe eight you know. My my husband is sick or my children. Need me more or i just don't need the money anymore And so there's a lot of reasons as to why people decide to sell but of course everyone. It's a personal decision at some people. Say you know. I got an offer. That was just too good to be true. So i took it god and they sell you a majority of our listeners. There startups like transitions right. They want to do start up. But you know how it is. Did you was yours. Acquisition a startup mine. I have to That were startups. I mean built from scratch. I mean they're like and just a big box. Empty box had to build it out. Okay and then you still have those tour. Well i've got some really good news. I actually just sold in september ago. And yeah i am now..

Four this podcast. It's called the the dental market or society. And i'll put a link to that and the show notes below as well but anyways guys in this episode i interviewed dr grace yom zimmerman and grace has been killing it. So she has should. I say she had an amazing thriving practice and she just sold it and we are recording this episode. She i guess this was the episode where she like reviewed it because she hasn't really talked to anybody about it sunk literally bit proud about that but we talk about that. We go much more into detail. We'll talk about if it's okay for business owners like a practice owner to transition back to being an associate. Don't look at that as a failure. I mean sometimes. Yeah you want to go into practice ownership and maybe you did it for a couple while a couple of years or something like that and then you know what. I'm ready to sell and go back into associated ship. I'm done with this part. Or maybe she's not cut out for you. Owning a business right and associated is what you want to be so we talked about being okay with that. We talk about how she just saw to her to practices and she didn't even use a broker so we discussed the details about that. We talk about her business model now. Grace created a business model where they don't have to depend on her right and i'm sure a lot of practice owners want to do that right now. Maybe create systems where you feel if you were to be gone for like a week two weeks a month. What do you grow your practice or what. Just start dying outright. Like oh my gosh. you're going to be gone. What are we gonna do. What's going to happen so we discuss that. And she explains the process about how she created that and so forth. We also discuss front desks and the front office team now. This could be a mystery for some but she breaks down to us what you need to look for in a front desk or front office and we also talk about something we all experience which is burn out. Was she burnt out. Are you feeling burnt out. What can you do about it. We get into detail about that and we talk about transitioning out what research degrades do in order for heard a seller practices and transition out. Who was her coach because she hired coach to transition out and know the process about all of this. Because if you don't know what to do. I mean you want to go to the people who do know what to do. You know that information and so forth so. She talked about her coach. She talks about where research she did. And so much more. She talks about how she ran the reports what reports she had to prepare for. And all these other things and we also discuss how you need to sell your practice at your peak and that's interesting because a lot of the times we think we're at a peak sell. Should we not now. let's. Let's wait till i eat a couple more years until we start seeing a decline we sell. Sometimes we think like that but we discuss why. It's so important for you to sell your practice at your peak and something else we discussed is grace has their own podcast and she does a lot of her own virtual summits and actually just summits in general the mommy dentists in business summit and she.

Here are five points to remember regarding your 4. Number one fees matter in their impact can be devastating. Seemingly small percentages have a huge impact in regards to your account rothe over time just one percent excessive annual fees can add up to hundreds of thousands even millions of dollars in lost retirement number two layers upon layers of fees are hidden in plain sight. The good news is in two thousand twelve. The law finally required fees to be fully disclosed. The bad news is the fee closures are thirty to fifty page documents that the average citizen has no chance in deciphering America's best 4. Can help number three mutual funds in your plan.

"Unnecessary amount of stress because it's not systemized correctly so if you can handle all four of those squadrons and look at those those pragmatically and there's an approach to master each of those four quadrants than you can handle burn out and you will be much better equipped to handle the pressures of this profession that we called mystery yes that can we get a man yeah. I'm all for it the whole like exercising and keeping your body healthy. I mean like if you're not healthy you can't do anything I mean like your back hurts your neck. Whatever all of that makes complete sense to me but implementing is probably the hardest part and figuring out how to do all four because I feel like it's a continuing it's like a gradient and it's like a push poll push Paul and trying to stand top of it? It takes a lot of work but I just want to thank you so much for all this wisdom and like just you're all like I can tell through. You're talking that it comes with a lot of experience and everything that you've learned you teach to others and I think that dentists really should get coaches and get professional help in that arena to increase longevity in their careers for sure so I just want to say thank you and I know that I'm going to have to end soon but if you had to give one piece of advice to a working parent but her mom or dad as a dentist. What is the best piece of advice? You have this an easy one for me. Not as take care of yourself I I I have three boys fifteen twelve and ten and they weren't always in the double digits. You know we had three little ones at one time and priorities get skewed very very quickly. If you don't take care of yourself you know good to anybody else and you just said that grace so take care of yourself. I start with a morning routine something really simple think of those four quadrants that I'm talking about just if you could do one small thing towards the improvement of each of those four quadrants every single day maybe before the rest above the family wakes up and you can really kind of get your mindset in the right place. You'll be so much more equipped to handle the stresses of parenthood and business ownership and being a physician so that's the big bit of advice that I have is take care of yourself. I perfect and Dr Mark.

"Okay then throw in the town quit or like. Are you kinda like step it up. Come on Lake. I would say cheese. It's really difficult for me to throw a a number out there but more than fifty percent of the doctors that hire me to coach them fall into that category of burnt-out disenchanted regretting that day selected dentistry as a profession it is very very common and in our profession because it's a pressure cooker. What we do is extremely difficult what we're expected to do on a daily basis to be able to run a business and be the manager it'd be the marketing coordinator later and be the treatment coordinator into the office manager and to worry about all of the vendors to worry about all of the personnel and every single patient and whether or not they're suppose stop sensitivity or failed Lester nation or what what were expected to do and the level at which were expected to perform clinically while balancing all these other things? It's really really exhausted and that's why there's such a high burnout in our profession so I would recommend and this is something that we've been working on a great deal in the last two years we have the system called the fourth futures and we have journal associated with it and everything and this is something that we work on as heavily now with our clients than we do with all other aspects except practice management and that's making sure that we have a balanced so if you drawn Exxon a piece of paper makes four quadrants on that piece of paper before quadrants that we make sure that everybody in our coaching group is focusing on the first squadron is mindfulness the second one on his meeting the third one we call muscle or on jeopardy or health and then intentionally the fourth one is money so mine meaning muscle and money so those are the four quadrants that we make sure that we're focusing on mindfulness mindfulness means that we are taking the time to have some sort of gratitude and mindfulness routine every single morning or were reflecting on what we're grateful for and we're making sure that we quieter mind and we're taking the time to just look at the picture it's all about keeping perspective and having gratitude and quieting the mind now meaning. That's all about relationships. How do we handle our personal? Relationships are work. Relationships are primary relationship our relationship with our kids. There has to be a very tangible way that we handle those they have to be. I'll the highest priority because if that falls.

"To qualify for for more lending and access access to more capital which is a great thing so what has to be really really clear which had to keep in mind when you're involving yourself in a partnership is that you have to plan the divorce before you get married and I really really mean it literally like that because when you get into a partnership it is like you are married to that person. You have got to have an exit strategy you you have to have attorneys get involved and you have to plan out exactly what things will look like if one person awesome wants to leave or one person is an abiding by what's contained in the operating agreement so if you do it correctly if you have a business attorney or a dental specific attorney any a partnership attorneys draft of the divorce before you actually sign on the bottom line as partners. You'RE GONNA be a lot better off. You're you're going to be a lot safer and it'll be cleaner. If you guys decide to go your separate ways which does happen the majority as a time in partnerships most people wind up breaking up with their partner and going their separate ways. Wow Yeah have you ever had a partner. I've had many partners and currently I have in the practices. I have two partners in the practices. I have a partner in my to California practices. I were fifty fifty partners on those two practices and then I have one of my practices in Arizona. I'm actually minority partner and he has the majority stake in that particular practice all the other practices. I own a hundred wow so my next question is like because you've purchased and sold and acquired and that gut like how do you know which ones to let go of and how do you not get emotionally attached to a practice and like how do you know when lend to let it go yeah. I think the first time that I saw the practice there was a tier to shed but it wasn't because of the actual asset it. Wasn't you know this is how this is how I separate myself. I'm already calling him asset the not practices but it wasn't because of a particular asset it was because of the people that actually were attached to that practice that asset those are the things that I get personally attached to like the teamwork and the Camaraderie and the actual individuals I get to know and loved these people and that's that's what makes it difficult about building practices and having to sell them sometimes but the actual tangible asset the business itself I typically don't get to emotionally involved with them and it's very simple formulaic decisions for for me if it's cash flowing well and it's worth the effort that myself and my executive team are putting into building it and there is we have busted through a ceiling and we think that we can continue to grow we'll hold onto that asset forever but if if we find ourselves in a different demographic where the demographic is changing or we are having a really difficult time getting a good provider to that particular location or the management team in particular location isn't living up to their end the bargain and we have significant turnover in that area and we have a willing somebody. That's willing to purchase the practice then we'll make that business decision and we'll let that practice go so I've done that. You know I've had fourteen practices. I've sold seven practices. So there's nothing that we can't figure out as far as finances and remove the emotion from it if you're a real business owner yeah. It sounds like you know the point that I'm getting from you. Are you need to have really a strong team. The you trust and you let them do their job and sprinkles from the top all the way down into the practices and the other point that I'm getting is that you make sound decisions based on hard numbers. It's not like just an intuition. It's like who need data and then you move forward from there and you make business decisions and not emotional ones and you you consider them assets. That's just kind of learning here from our conversation and I'm getting a quick tutelage here but that's what I'm learning. How do you feel about like the if a doctor is like I'm burnt out? I feel like I I can't do this anymore. What do you say to those doctors like?.

"What kind of person I am that I, that I treat them fairly that I'm honest with them. I never look down on anybody. You know, they know they can come to my office stores, always open. They know that they can come to me with anything. And you know, there are times where I'm super forgiving within their times where I'm super hard on that, but they know might where where it's coming from an having, an open channel. Communication with your team is so vital because you are the leader of the office. If you don't teach them how you're gonna McCain communicate with them, how are they gonna communicate with one another and running team is kinda like like I always explained to them the analogy of a professional baseball team or professional football team. All players need to know what's going on. All players need to know how to communicate with one another. In if you don't, you're never gonna win the Super Bowl. Right. Exactly. That's so true of, yeah. So I'm like, you know, I'm the coach and you guys are like, you know, the quarterback in the, you know, defenseman or whatnot. In. If we don't practice our skills and we don't practice were never going to get to the level where we wanna be. But I always say we wanna bring our a game every day. In what with that level of communication understanding in sounds like empathy. Eight it. It does make a difference. So you have that talk over that stressful day and you go home in in granted, things probably didn't go the right way. How do you relax? Yeah. What relaxing to you in full? It's it's really hard because it's like you want to go home and relax, but you can't because then you have a five year on three eighty. Right. He's got an you spent like all day with everybody else's children. Yes, yes, to it's like you spent the whole day with kids, crying or land there, whatever. And then you come home and you're so close to your own kids that you're just like exhausted in. So I do the best that I can with them, you know, dinner bath, you know, get ready for bed and then afterwards it's like eight o'clock at night. And if I can get a sitter all, go and get like a manicure or something, or I'll try to work out or try alternative something to kind of decompress. And usually there's Auckland involved. Wonder beer. Usually a little of the direct Ryan to to kind of late and take the job and kinda wind down after the manicure. Yeah, exactly. That that's usually kind of like my my thing and luckily where I live, there are a lot of places where you can go eight night time. Yes, so, and I'm okay. You know, doing things myself going places myself in like my husband travels a lot for work. So if he's home than we like to go out to dinner lot. So then like have a dinner end just talk with our phones away rule. Yeah. So we have a rule that we're at dinner. We do not have our phones out. That's really good rule. They used to be a family rule when we all meet together. But not we break the rule. Jenner noticed that our phones are still right next to us. Right. If you. It's funny like if he's working on like a deal or if I am expecting something from patient at the end of dinner will be like, okay, phone. You're the same, you know, frame of mind though where it can be away, then it's like, okay, phone check in your both doing that together. So that's really important. It sounds like when you talked about coming home and you know you had two kids all day and then you have your own children. They're sort of on a nice little schedule that feels comfortable in spending time with them up because it is about managing in I, I'm a scheduler. I put everything on my schedule to make it work in all those priorities in at the end of the day, somehow you find that me time which you clearly have have stated. What do you think. Are the key characteristics of the successful business owner and maybe just touch on what success feels like to you? Okay. So I think success has different meanings definitions amend for me. I think success is setting a goal and cheating it like when it comes down to the gritty. And so for me is I take little steps in. I learned somewhere that if you write things down, you're more likely to pursue those goals achieve that. Right. So I try to do I used to like, right, but now I do everything on my phone, so I put it in my leg note seven of my father and I'm like, these are the things that I wanna do. And so one of the things that I would tell other people if they wanna be successful as write it down and give yourself like a timeframe of when you wanna have done by in, tried to achieve that way on into, that's what successes to me and. I, I tend to like be a visionary, and I like to think outside the box and if something isn't attainable, where I don't sure how teen it definitely ask around, you know, like I'm not trying to do by myself like a tram, be resourceful and ask other people for help in how to ask their opinion like headed, do you think I could go about doing XYZ, you know, on an, I feel like part of my success is surrounding myself again with knowledgeable people and people that I look up to answer that has been my way of achieving success. You know, I love that you're surrounding yourself with knowledgeable people. I always say that if you feel like you're the smartest person in the room, there is a big problem. Right. People who know more or doing more or has some sort of different perspective of at least I find that that just helps me to keep reaching and ask those questions in going deeper for EM's with me, just give some quick parting advice to other business owners about building a business and in being a little more social at the same time, right while I would say, don't give up, you know, and businesses are always going to have their ups and downs. You're never always one hundred percent could be successful. You have to fail at some point on, it's what you do with those failures that makes you learn not to make that mistake again. But don't give up like if it's something that you wanna pursue, nothing in life that's worthwhile is easy. No one's going to hand you a silver platter here. Here you go exam. You have to work hard for what you want. And I think that a personality trait of successful people. Is that you have to have some grit bike. You need to have a little bit more grit and have a fire on your belly to pursue your goals on. So my advice for business owners is to do just that and also look at all avenues on how to create success, including social media because so some people shy away from it because it's kinda new, they don't know how to use it. But if you are not up with the times and you're not keeping yourself current, this new technology, you're missing out on an avenue that could increase your visibility and therefore, you know, you're, you can't be successful, you can be or could be satanically use social media to your advantage and be a student of social media. Read dear dress. Manses or the monarch communicator. And be be resourceful because that's where it's headed. You know, like that's the new way that's modern. I can't stress enough the importance of being modern and no matter how would you are. My dad is seventy three years old and he's got apple, walk era go down. I, you know, Langley is totally up with the times in any more than I do. On the show like put. I mean, like that is I think, really important. So I'm not going to keep battling end on that note modems. Dave great advice, grace of or or less question super-busy. Where can people find out more about you and your? Oh, great things on.

"Studi. Exactly. So I, I love learning and the podcast I wanted it to be for the moms in our group because we ask so many questions like, hey, what are the using for skin care? What are you wearing it? You know, what are your outfits for work, which shoes are the most comfortable. So what I tried to do was kind of find different experts in different fields to kinda take it into deeper level. In answer this question that we have been talking about in the group, so whether it's fashion, whether it's business, whether it's social media, like different topics, different exercise, deer, urine expert. So I had you on the podcast to share on everyone. We have such a tremendous response hoping doing. It was great. It was great in the thing is we don't have these resources at our fingertips nor to the time to. Seek it out. So I thought, you know, how great would it be to be able to do these podcast interviews to educate ourselves and to help educate my group in for anybody who you know who wants to listen essentially, and I really enjoyed it so much in it also taps into my passion for communications things back back to back to school, the school days. So for me, it's more personal than anything. I'm not trying to make money off of it. I'm not selling anything. I'm really just doing it for my own personal, you know, on education and if other people can benefit from it than its crate through your passion in learning coming through loud and clear grace.

And I were chatting about dentists on social media, and she was just sharing about her podcasts in FBI. Live show mummy dentists in business grace. Okay. You are super social as a Piatra dentist. You know, we talked about how you tied your communication studies into your dentist practice, and you've seen a lot of success in it. Sounds like there's a tremendous amount of bonding that's going on as well as like you said the passion in learning. However, there's always challenges, and I think it's important to touch on those challenges, whether you're a mommy at distant business or any profession. So they wonder or some of the challenges that you face in business today. While I think that the challenging aspect. In my life with the businesses just time. I feel like there's just never enough time, you know. And so you're always for me racing to do this racing to do that. China squeeze this in just balancing work like balance a everyone struggles a lot with that too. Especially if you're apparent in your working. So for my business, the challenge is always been like while I wanna be there for my patients need to be there for my family. So it's just managing my schedule and running trying to be successful as I can and being there for everyone who needs me to be at the right place right time net show up to the door Atallah just the wrong day. One, I mean going back to something you said before about you have people emailing, they're texting, they're leaving Facebook comments. They're still picking up the phone and probably calling whoever is manning the desk grade at your practice so that that creates challenges in and of itself with time it does because you're constantly checking but also do people at the office that are monitoring social media that are monitoring the Facebook pages instrument counts. And if some, if somebody asks a question through there, they notify me and I have my Email system set up to that. Patients are not emailing me directly most trying. They're mostly directly emailing the AUSSIE male. So instead of its instead of emailing Dr? Yeah, they're emailing the office and then whoever is handling the Email will either, you know, come to me and say, did you see this Email or how should I respond? I've trained my team well enough that they know how to respond to certain things on. So it's not always on my plate, and if it's something above and beyond what they can help within the come to me is a, hey, you need to call so and so back or you need to do the XYZ on the me make it happen. Yeah. I think the people monitoring is a really important point that you just made and having people around you that understand in almost prioritize for you. Yes, because I'm sure that the monitoring is on social media. They're looking at comments. Were you said the Email system so you're probably putting in. Time to train people. But if you put the time in early, it works out on the back end, yes. So it's really important to train properly and manage your expectations and manage the way you want things done. So that you're not like constantly micromanaging, you know. So like if you trained properly in the front end than you don't have to manage so hard. Exactly. Makes us. Yeah, your team feels trusted and you're letting them make decisions. And you're basically saying, you know, I trust that you're gonna handle this in get what I need to know as a priority quickly that probably makes a stronger team together and with you. Right. Exactly. And so when you have a properly trained team, it makes your work less stressful and more manageable. So it's just learning how to run officially and productively everything's once. You him at all the little details. You're just kind of running a tight ship. So I find that if have systems in place and everyone knows the role in responsibility. There's less chance of mistakes right than you said. Everybody note has the the same expectations. Everybody's on the same page is really important to writing to that out. Right? So why while all this monitoring is going on and you have your fair share of being in different places in in doing what you need to do, do you ever

I wanna be dentist when you I went to school, tells a little bit about how you ended up as a pediatric dentist share while that's a great question. And now the answer is no. I never thought I was going to be a dentist. And actually when I was high school, I really thought about becoming a pediatrician, like I wanted to be a medical focus growing up. I was like, never one to be like sick from, you know, seeing blood or I would watch my doctor gave me a shot like a number. Great kid. It was like one of those things like that. My mom was like, oh my God, like you really are afraid of all the stuff, you know, like medical stuff in. So I worked for paediatrician Mike utrition in highschool as a part time job to answer phones and I really loved it. I loved what my teacher was during that then one day, you know, got that. Like a newborn baby died and I just, you know, when you're in high school and you're not familiar with life and death situations. Yeah. So I was so upset and I just was like, you know what? I can't deal with life. I can deal with blood. But I cannot deal with the life and death situation thing, but yes. Right. You know, guess worrying too much. I ended up being a communication studies major, but in college I had pretend job in a dental office for north honest and really loved that. And I always come that in the back of my mind. Like I really love the sciences. I love no medical stop in the next like with dentistry is kind of cool, but then I really loved communication studies in. So that's kind of what I pursued as a nature and all taking science classes at the same time. And the more I worked in the dental field, the more I really enjoyed it on it was kind of like a struggle like a push Paul, like, I wanted to go this way out of the way, but then I took a gap year and missed the dental field. Then I was like, okay, I do wanna do this. And then that's gotta dentistry. In been in it since then? Absolutely. Still love it very much. But now like you mention having that communication cities background, his been a really good like advantage for me. It's been a plus because now with social media platform, I can use the skill sets in what used to be passionate about. So it's been like a very interesting like partnership in marrying dentistry to the communications, and
