Gratitude, Perspective, YOU

There are thousands of dentists from all over the world reading this email today, on American Thanksgiving.

And while many of you don’t live in the United States, any day is a great day to be grateful.

I just wanted to send out some quick stats to get you in the gratitude mindset…

  • As a dentist, you have defied the odds and have become part of the top 5% of all educated people in the world
  • Of the world’s 7 billion people, 3 billion survive on less than $2.50 per day
  • 2.6 Billion people live without adequate sanitation
  • 1.1 Billion people live without access to clean water

No matter where you are in your practice and life, there sure is a whole lot to be thankful for today.

On behalf of my entire team here at the Dental Success Institute, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and participation in this amazing community.

And to of all of you in the States, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

All the Best,

The Entrepreneurial Satellite Practice

From 1994 to 1997 I was rejected 20 times by various dental schools before finally getting accepted on the 21st attempt.

Following dental school, in the first seven years of my dental career, I was able to build six very successful dental practices.

How was this possible?

Did I posses some knowledge or intelligence that other dentists don’t have? Definitely not.

Did I have a wealthy family who bank-rolled the operation? A resounding NO to that one too… in fact, the while in under grad, I worked a full time forty-hour week and paid for 100 percent of my tuition and expenses. The crushing schedule took a toll on my GPA and left me with an average dental school application.

Fortunately, one dental school admissions committee recognized my persistence and decided to take a chance on me. It was blessing, a stroke of luck, that changed the trajectory of my life forever.

So back to the question…

How was a 20 time reject to dental school who didn’t come from a wealthy background able to build a multi practice empire?

The simple answer is this: I made more mistakes than anyone else.

I failed faster, corrected course, got myself up, and tried again and again and again…

I attended events, found coaches and mentors and surrounded myself with people much smarter than me.

This June marks the thirteenth year of my dental career and in that time I’ve been sidelined twice with major spine surgeries. But never during my months of physical rehab did I experience a drop in my level of income.

Because of what I’ve learned about building entrepreneurial satellite practices and creating passive streams of income, I’ve been able to design a business independent of my own two hands.  I know now that even if I never pick up a handpiece again for the rest of my life, my family will be taken care of.

For me, that knowledge has created a level of peace that is indescribable, and I want that for you.

Whether you want to create multiple streams of income, build multiple practices, or just make your practice and career the very best that it can be, I’ve got an opportunity for you.

On March 20-21st, at The Dental Success Summit 2015, I’ll be uncovering the formula that can help any dentist to rapidly increase the order and profitability of any dental practice. I’ll also be sharing how to predictably open multiple dental practices and transition them for a huge profit and perpetual residual income.

And as a special “Thank You,” for being a member of this community, we have a special early bird discount price…But this special pricing will expire soon.

It’s time to surround yourself with the people and resources that can take your business and life to the next level. None of us can do this alone.

Look forward to meeting you in March!

Walking Away from Dentistry…Your Timeline

Have you ever had a particularly tough day, week, month, or year and fantasized about walking away from dentistry?

As an “in the trenches” practicing dentist, as well as a dental business coach, I know firsthand the frustrations that come along with dentistry and practice ownership.  My transformation from one struggling practice to six successful dental practices can be attributed to just two things… learning from and adapting to the huge number of mistakes that I made, and modeling experts inside and outside of the dental profession.

Dr. Buddy Furqueron is definitely that type of expert…

Dr. Buddy Furqueron is an extremely successful practicing dentist as well as a popular dental speaker and coach. In this video, Buddy will reveal:

  • How to increase your income while decreasing the number of hours you spend at you practice
  • The “Rule of 72” and how to use it forecast and accelerate your eventual transition from dentistry
  • How to decrease fixed expenses and increase profitability
  • How to shave years off of your retirement timeline

On March 20-21, 2015, Dr. Furqueron and a line-up of world class speakers will be delivering their best practice building strategies at the Dental Success Summit 2015 in Scottsdale, AZ.

A Must Watch- Thank You Veterans!

As a first generation American, I have a very special appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans have made to make this country what it is today.

In the late 1960’s my father came to this country with $100, a suitcase, and a dream. Nearly fifty years later, he is the embodiment of the American dream… and I know, that none of it would have been possible without the dedication of our veterans.

Thank you to my amazing hygienist, Courtney Leonard, and to all others throughout the world who have served to make this world a safer place for generations to come.

I hope that your week is filled peace and gratitude!

All the best,

Mark Costes, DDS
