I’m Dr. Phil.
This book was co-written by 14 healthcare professionals, 13 dentists and myself, a veterinary surgeon.
(My co-authors call me the “black sheep” of the book project… but hey, I like sheep).
I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian since the age of 5. My favorite TV shows were Flipper, Daktari, and Lassie.
As a veterinary surgeon, I used to work 60+ hours per week, only getting 3-4 hours of sleep per night.
My career demanded everything I had.
I love my work. It is my calling. But without Freedom, it was proving unsustainable.
I was working myself to the bone… something had to change.
My dental colleagues experienced a similar reality.
This book is about our journey to Freedom.
We are an unlikely band of travelers. But our journey’s are strikingly similar. In this book, we share our hardships, our disappointments, and our failures very openly.
It’s written for people like us:
- Practice owners who have found the traditional model lacking
- Business owners who feel like they’re on a treadmill.
- Doctors who don’t see the light at the end of the retirement tunnel.
Today, I’m able to continue my work, but on my own terms. I only do surgery a few days per week. I have time for my family.
I’m able to do what I love, and still experience Freedom in my life.
This book shares my story.
My hope is that this book will change lives… just the way Freedom Founders has helped me change my life.
