In this episode, I talk with Jeff Russell, a successful entrepreneur and business owner, about the importance of mindset and creating a practice that can run without the owner. Jeff shares his journey starting multiple successful businesses and provides valuable insights on how practice owners like myself can achieve freedom and success.

Jeff Russell is a seasoned entrepreneur with five successful businesses under his belt. He started his journey in the medical field, specializing in medical equipment financing and leasing. With his background in coding and logical problem-solving, Jeff quickly systemized his businesses, allowing them to generate revenue even when he's not physically present. He shares his expertise on how to create a practice that can run without me as the owner, emphasizing the need to adopt a mindset that focuses on the future and the value of the business.

"If you create a practice that requires you to be there day to day, you've actually devalued your retirement future." - Jeff Russell

During the interview, Jeff discusses the importance of having a clear personal purpose and why it's crucial for practice owners like me to envision ourselves firing ourselves from our own practice. He explains that by building a practice that doesn't rely solely on the owner, it increases the value of the business and allows for a more fulfilling and balanced life. Jeff also emphasizes the need for practice owners to take time off and dedicate it to thinking strategically and planning for the future.

This episode is a must-listen for practice owners who want to create a practice that can thrive without their constant presence. Jeff provides practical advice and steps on how I can hire the right people, delegate tasks, and build a team of self-motivated individuals.

If you're a practice owner looking to achieve freedom and success, this episode is for you. Tune in to learn from Jeff's experience and expertise, and discover how you can create a practice that runs smoothly even when you're not there.
