Dr. David & Karen Scharf Free for Life - Freedom Founders

It's refreshing and it's freeing just to know you can sort of do whatever you want.

Meet Dr. David and Karen Scharf

When you own a practice, even when you're not there, your mind is. Even if I was with my kids, mentally, I wasn't present. I was worrying about the compressor that broke or the staff is unhappy or just a hundred different things. It sort of robbed me of that time with my kids growing up. That was the worst part of the whole thing. That was sort of the promise of Freedom Founders that caught my attention.

 

We had invested before with someone and lost a lot of money so we were, to say the least, skeptical. But sometime through my first six-eight months in it, I saw that my monthly checks coming in were enough to meet my Freedom number. I saw that there's a way to invest in real estate and make my money work for me. It changed my attitude about the whole thing.

 

When I think about how different my life would've been if I had known about Freedom Founders in my thirties. The stress would've been different, my income would've been different, my time with my kids would've been different. I guess that's my only regret, not knowing about Freedom Founders sooner. I feel like the future is so wide open. We can live anywhere in the world that we want and those checks, just go into my bank account automatically. It's refreshing and it's freeing just to know you can sort of do whatever you want.

The legacy phase of retirement planning for dentists

Free For Life™ is not the end. If anything, it is an inflection point to go even further.

Meet Dr. Cody & Haily Cowen

I knew that there was this position in healthcare that would allow me to build my own business, hire the people that I wanted to hire to work with, develop the culture that I wanted in my own practice, work my own hours.

With Freedom Founders, I don't have to produce and be the one in the chair from 7:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon. It has allowed me to do things with my practice that I couldn't do if it was just me doing work. As your practice becomes more productive, you grow, you're more profitable, you're less stressful, everybody's happy. Your wife is  happy at home, your kids are happy because you could pick them up from school. Everything gets better.

For me, Free For Life™ means freedom on a work day where you are going to your practice, freedom with your family, freedom financially. Free for life is not the end. If anything, I think that's an inflection point to go even further.

I never thought that I could work one day a week in my practice and let it run for five days, and now I can.

Meet Dr. Dora Lee

It just clicked a few months ago. I don't have to be stuck in this cycle. I couldn't do it if I didn't have this other part of my financial portfolio that was giving me steady and stable income on the side.

 

There's a lot of pressure from a potential recession and inflation that could cause stress. Honestly, I've been shielded from that and I credit so much of that to being involved in Freedom Founders. I never thought that I could work one day a week in my practice and let it run for five days, and now I can. Having that choice is just freeing – I don't have these golden handcuffs chaining me to the practice anymore. It's just a matter of what I want to do next.

 

I love having the freedom to go where I want, discover new things and have adventures. I love learning about other cultures, other people, how they live life. I'm glad that I'm young enough to do all this traveling. I'm glad I didn't wait until I'm about to retire to start thinking about what I'm going to do with the rest of my life.

Dr. Tommy and Shelly Reed - Free for Life - Freedom Founders

Just knowing that you have the freedom to do the things you want to and enjoy, it just makes the day so much better.

Meet Dr. Tommy and Shelly Reed

Shelly Reed:
Tommy has this habit of sucking me into evening events. If it's travel stuff or retirement, I have done it. And when he said we had this event with Freedom Founders, I complained the entire car ride. We got there. I had to eat crow on that one. This is the best one that I made myself attend that I still feel passionate about.

 

Tommy Reed:
The first time I ever talked to David, I was just so impressed. He was so honest, full of integrity, and had a vision for what this could be. He wanted like-minded people to be in this group and being in it gave us a vision for our future. As many times we had talked about the future, it forced us to make decisions, and it forced us to look at things like we never had before. For that I will be eternally grateful.

 

Shelly Reed:
I've loved the fact that he's only three days a week now. He doesn't have to work. He doesn't have to go in. 

 

Tommy Reed:
Just knowing that you have the freedom to do the things you want to and enjoy, it just makes the day so much better. For the longest time, I was trading time for money, and I don't want to trade time for money anymore.

Dr. James and Sara Green - Free for Life - Freedom Founders

Free For Life™ to me is a constantly changing evolution of how we frame and see things.

Meet Dr. James and Sarah Green

Sarah Green:
When James came across Freedom Founders, I think we were looking for a clear path. The stock market was just so stressful. “It's a good day, it's not a good day, it's up, we're down.” I don't think we had clarity of how to be less fragile.

I noticed, just by talking to other members, how transformational this connection had been to them. It just gave me peace, the way that David explained everything. It was all very transparent. 

James Green:
Freedom to me means knowing that if I decided tomorrow I didn't want to do this anymore, I don't have to. That's a big thing because most of us walk around with this idea that we're responsible for our team, we're responsible for their families, we're responsible for all these other people ahead of ourselves. Just to take a few days off seems like we're letting everybody down.

Free For Life™ is not the end of anything. We climb this mountain and we can continue on with whatever our next is. In my mind, Free For Life™ to me is a constantly changing evolution of how we frame and see things.

Freedom of Time gives us the opportunity to work more on our relationship together, our relationship with our family, our kids, our grandkids, our friends.

Meet Dr. Guy and Patti Nash

Patti Nash:
We were sensing that it was going to be time for Guy to retire, and I wanted him to feel like he was able to retire, but we didn't have a solid plan for what that looked like.

 

Guy Nash:
When we joined Freedom Founders, I think the main focus was: “How we can be free financially?” And while we definitely accomplished that, we realized there's other levels of freedom too.

 

Patti Nash:
Freedom of Time gives us the opportunity to work more on our relationship together, our relationship with our family, our kids, our grandkids, our friends. We've made so many nice new friends within Freedom Founders, and we can now just enjoy those friendships even more and not be so tied down.

 

Guy Nash:
Now we’d like to instill the values of care, compassion, helping those that might be disadvantaged – the core principles that help you live your life to the fullest and not just living for yourself.

Dr. Jason and Amy Lowry - Free for Life - Freedom Founders

[Freedom Founders] helped us finalize our blueprint, and get us to a point where we have freedom in so many different areas of our lives.

Meet Dr. Jason and Amy Lowry

Amy Lowry:
We were running out of money, and we couldn't find a house. We didn't know what else to do, so we’d sleep in the dental office at night. Really early in the morning we'd wake up, throw the air mattresses in the minivan, and I'd just take the kids to the park. We would spend the day out until he was done with work, then we’d go back to the dental office. We had to make every dollar stretch, but we made it to where we are now.

 

Jason Lowry:
I've had two things that have defined me as a professional: Being a dentist and a real estate investor. It's what has gotten us to a point where we can kind of sit back and relax. It's never been about when I accumulate X money in stocks or so much in real estate. It's only ever been about the passive income per month. Freedom Founders helped me dial in that last little bit, helped us lose those last five pounds that are the hardest to lose. They’ve helped us finalize our blueprint, and get us to a point where we have freedom in so many different areas of our lives.

 

Now, we're excited to be grandparents, and show our children how to use real estate as a vehicle for passive cash flow. We're really excited about all the opportunities and time we’ll have with our family.

 

Drs. Scott and Kelli Fischer - Free for Life - Freedom Founders

It's like a weight lifted off your shoulder when you have your path laid out in front of you and you know everything's going to be okay.

Meet Drs. Scott and Kelli Fischer

Scott Fischer:
I'd say our family culture is very tight-knit. We've worked together as co-dentists in the same practice for 32 years, and we sat next to each other in dental school, so that was another four years. We're as tight as tight can get.

 

We were amassing some money, but as Warren Buffet said, “If you're not making money while you're sleeping, you're in trouble.” And when you think about trying to leave dentistry, get out of the practice, do the math, no matter how much money you got, it's not going to last very long. It's changed our mindset completely to figure out what passive income was and how to do it.

 

Kelli Fischer:
We have one son, Jake, who is 23. He has made an investment already with one of the Trusted Advisors. He's getting that mindset, and that is very rewarding to see him taking charge. Gosh, I would give anything at 23 years old to be able to have that knowledge.

 

It's like a weight lifted off your shoulder when you have your path laid out in front of you and you know everything's going to be okay. That's what freedom means to me.

Dr. James and Margie Stafford - Free for Life - Freedom Founders

Freedom to me means not having to worry about what's in store for life, or where the money's going to come from.

Meet Dr. James and Margie Stafford

Margie Stafford:
James has always wanted to do what’s best for his family. Family has always been important to us. When the children were growing up, we’d go visit the grandparents, visit relatives, and friends.

 

James Stafford:
I've always been real disciplined about saving. At the same time, I was always interested in real estate. I just didn't know how to do it.

 

I’ve really enjoyed the experiences and all the knowledge we gained by being in Freedom Founders. It’s also all the relationships we’ve formed in the community. It's a fine group of people and I've really enjoyed being with everyone. Even though I'm taking more days off, I'm really enjoying practicing right now.

 

Freedom to me means not having to worry about what's in store for life, or where the money's going to come from, and being able to do whatever we want to do whenever we want to do it.

The #1 Trait of Our Most Successful Mastermind Members: They Took Action. Are You Ready to Join Them?

Most Dentists Don’t Have a "Plan B"...Do You?

The Cruelest Fate is to Possess Wealth Without Freedom.

It’s a fate that can be costly…

As my friend Dr. Mike Abernathy says:  “Being a solo practitioner dentist past age 50 is a 99% fatal condition.”  

  • The industry is changing (corporate dentistry, managed insurance, etc)
  • Your retirement “runway” is shortening
  • Your health is in the balance (decades of leaning over the chair takes its toll)

If you’re a solo practitioner still active in your practice nearing (or past) the age of 50, with little clarity about your plan for retirement… The time to act is NOW.  

The good news is, it’s not too late.

When you visit our Mastermind, you meet dentists who got on track (in the second half of their careers) and found Freedom… in less than 3-5 years.

You can too.

Once you join, financial Freedom is often only 3-5 years away (or less).
