156. Whats Next When Disaster Strikes Your Family with Dr. David Phelps the author of “What’s Your Next?: The Blueprint for Creating Your Freedom Lifestyle”
Dr. David Phelps the author of "What's Your Next?: The Blueprint for Creating Your Freedom Lifestyle" is Dr. Brad Miller's guest on Episode 156 of the Beyond Adversity Podcast.
In an in-depth conversation, Dr. Phelps talks to Brad about what actions you can take when you are faced with profound adversity involving your family.
Dr. David Phelps owned and managed a private practice dental office for more than 21 years. While still in dental school, he began his investment in real estate by joint-venturing with his father on their first rental property in 1980. Three years later, they sold the property and David took His $25,000 capital gain share and leveraged it into 31 properties that later produced $15,000 monthly net cash flow.
Life was good, the sky was the limit –until the dark day that David’s daughter, Jenna, was diagnosed with Leukemia. In the midst of cancer treatments, epilepsy and ultimately a liver transplant for Jenna, David made the crucial decision to leave clinical practices so that he could spend every moment with his daughter.
David’s “Plan B” (a portfolio of cash-flow producing real estate assets) gave him the Freedom to focus 100% on what mattered most to him. Jenna won the battle with the disease, and David still enjoys the Freedom to cherish every moment with her that he can.
Today, David is a nationally recognized speaker on creating Freedom, building real businesses, and investing in real estate. He also combines his professional and personal experiences to illustrate how the tactical and aspirational work together. David helps other logical, rational professionals become dreamers, then strategically manifest those dreams into Freedom. He authors a monthly newsletter, "Path to Freedom" and hosts "The Dentist Freedom Blueprint" podcast. Freedom Founders Mastermind Community grows exponentially, year by year, providing the pathway to Freedom for many professionals.
David is the author of What’s Your Next: The Blueprint for Creating Your Freedom Lifestyle, along with two other books: The Apprentice Model: A Young Leader’s Guide to an Anti-Traditional Life and From High Income To High Net Worth for Dentists.
