Frequently Asked Questions

Important Homework!

Before you hop on your call with Chris, take a moment to review these quick answers to the most common questions we receive from folks who want to learn more about Freedom Founders.

There are also some “Should Ask Questions” – questions that you’ll be asking down the road when you’ve learned enough to ask them. We thought it’d be helpful to put them on your radar now. 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

Freedom Founders is a mastermind community of dentists and other practice professionals (veterinary, chiropractic, and physicians). Our purpose and mission is to show our members how to become “Free For Life” by:

  1. Optimizing current assets (business and investments).
  2. Deploy capital into alternative investments (primarily real estate) in order to become financially free in as few as two years – depending on one’s asset base, debt, lifestyle, and commitment to action.  

Think of Freedom Founders as your Board of Advisors.  Because of Dr. David Phelps’ network and the reputation of our group, we often get first shot at inside investment deals not available to the public. (Such inside information and access would be illegal on Wall Street).

We offer education, access, and speed.

We start with a customized plan – called the “Freedom Blueprint”. It’s a path to financial freedom based on your situation, goals, and risk tolerance (which changes with knowledge and experience).  

The plan has three parts:

  1. Defining what freedom looks like for you.
  2. Assessing your current assets and liabilities.
  3. Implementing action steps to “close the gap” from current reality to financial freedom by redeploying assets and diminishing liabilities.

In order to put it into action, we meet live 3-4 times per year.  In between our meetings, we do many live virtual trainings, small-group masterminds, and weekly accountability calls, and we bring access to new and highly curated investment opportunities.  

Membership is by application only. The right fit is essential for both the member and the community.   This is intentional. We operate on core beliefs that are critical to the long-term success of our members.  Integrity is number one, and we self-police. Any member or advisor who does not perform with integrity is dismissed.  It happens occasionally – not often.

We try hard to protect the quality of our Mastermind community. Everyone in our room has been carefully, personally vetted through a strict application process. One of the ways that we have kept the bar high is by requiring some skin in the game (our application deposit).

It’s a demonstration of commitment on your part that you intend to come and see the Mastermind for yourself. That’s all that we require in order to save you a seat. (As a practice professional, you know that nothing is more disappointing than a patient deciding to skip an appointment you reserved for them – it’s a waste of everyone’s time).

Obviously, you can’t just take our word for it. 🙂 The best answer is: come see for yourself. You’ll get the chance to meet our members and ask them directly. We have members who have become “Free For Life” in less than 3 years.  The community, the access, and the security…it works.

Our members become lifelong friends. Some members have said that the community is their best insurance policy; not just because of what they learn and put into action on their financial blueprint, but because they know they have friends who have their back and would step up for them if a crisis ever occurred.

Plus, we have a 100% 30-day money back guarantee.  Love it or leave it.

Have you ever tried to explain an experience to someone, only to throw your hands in the air in frustration and admit defeat… “You just had to be there!”

That happens a lot when folks don’t come as a couple to Freedom Founders.  Some things, you have to experience personally to “get.” Most of our members attend the event as a couple. We believe it’s vital to have your spouse on board with your decision to come to Freedom Founders.

Membership is an investment – a chance to buy future dollars at a discount for decades to come.  We have membership levels ranging from $13,497 to $165,000/year. The greater the investment, the faster you’ll be able to achieve your Freedom goals. It’s all about speed and focus. How fast you go is up to you.   

Most of our members have access to at least $1M or more of investable capital (this can include under-utilized equity or money in traditional retirement accounts). The average capital deployed by our members in year one is over $650,000.  

The ROI (return on investment), both direct and indirect is “priceless.”  That’s why our average member stays with us and reaches their freedom goals in 3-5 years.  Some less, some more. Couples tell us that Freedom Founders has been one of the best decisions of their lives with the return being priceless.  What is the value of freedom?

There is also the annuity value both during and after membership.  The skill of orchestrating one’s own financial future with confidence, predictability, and sustainability is similar to a doctor or dentist being licensed and authorized to practice – one can work and create a relatively high income for as many years as he or she desires to work.  Those skills don’t go away. In Freedom Founders, the ability to continue to build wealth and recurring income doesn’t stop once a member reaches their goals…those skills last for a lifetime.

Life is busy. It can be tough to decide what to prioritize. Here’s what David would tell you: “You always make time for what matters to you.” Here’s the thing: Freedom is really all about creating more time. The faster you achieve your Freedom, the faster you can free up time for what matters most. Our members share countless stories of how the Freedom Blueprint helped them get free of what was holding their schedules hostage… allowing them more time for family, travel, community, building new businesses, or whatever their dreams might be. The question is: are you willing to prioritize building that Freedom of time now?

"Should Ask" Questions

Key questions that you should be asking if you want to learn more about Freedom Founders and achieve Freedom in life and business.

We are NOT is a financial advisory or investment house. Unlike most financial or real estate platforms, we do NOT sell real estate or any other services or products. We also do NOT manage your money for you.

This allows us to be 100% agnostic and free of any conflict in how and in what our members invest. We show our members how to create a clear and viable exit strategy (or remain in practice on their terms, not the insurance industry) within 3-5 years.

What we offer is education, access and speed.

Most people unfortunately think of “retirement” as the endgame. They work 30, 40, 45 years in a career or business, and then are forced to retire for health reasons. That’s a pretty sad way to live. You shouldn’t wait until you’re too old to work any more to start thinking about Freedom, and life outside the 4 walls of your operatory. Your endgame shouldn’t be in your 80s or 90s when you really can’t work anymore. Take “retirement” out of your vocabulary. Define your endgame. Start thinking about what life could look like beyond your active income days – that inflection point might be closer than you think.

The key to finding the right deal is to first find the right “who”.

Relationship capital is just as important as financial capital, and possibly more so. You don’t want to reinvent the wheel, or go out and start a business called “fixing houses.” There are great people who deal with contractors, permitting, and code enforcement – all the stuff you don’t want to do. You want to be the investor – the financial partner at the table.

David has great deals cross his desk all the time – he’s built up a digital rolodex of hundreds of people who he’s known over the years who have good track records. He finds the deals to invest in through the relationships he’s built over the past 39 years. If you’ve got time, you can do the searching yourself. Or, you can buy speed through other people who already have those connections.
