Interesting Case ButtonThis week starts with a quote by George Burns and a bonus quote of the day.  Part one of Strength Based Leadership begins and promises to be a foundational and invaluable book.  I particularly like the web-based test that you can take that will tell you your top five strengths!  We look at two of the four leadership strength or styles and real life examples of each.  The ex-NFL football player was in a no-contact game of flag football and took an elbow to the right eye and sustained a blowout fracture of the right orbital floor.  A subciliary incision was made and a titanium impregnated Medpor implant was used to reconstruct the orbital floor.  Check out the radiographs in the Interesting cases section.

EP044: David Sewell enlightens “Mail Box Check” investment opportunity decreasing DENTAL CHAIR DEPENDENCY.

Every practicing dentist is acutely aware of this unmistakable fact:  If you are not sitting in the chair, PRODUCTION=ZERO .  I had no idea that when I started dentistry that it meant that anytime a dollar was earned I needed to have gloves on and be in the trenches working in my practice instead of on my practice.

Every dentist dreams of going to the mailbox and getting a check without having to fix teeth.  David Sewell from International Coffee Farms in Panama tells us how we can decrease our dependency and participate in a socially conscious, passive investment that results in you owning deed property with significant cash flow.  This episode is way out of the norm for this podcast but I could not resist sharing.

I discovered this investment, I vetted them out and I converted a significant portion of my 401k into coffee farms.  In fact my investment was big enough that I qualify for finders fees for new investors for ICF.  The amount is insignificant to me but the investment can change my listeners lives so I felt compelled to share this with you.
