qadeerWelcome to another episode of the Dentalpreneur Podcast.

One of my biggest pet peeves is exaggeration and hyperbole in copywriting.

With that being said, I am extremely optimistic about an innovative company called Pro Care and their accomplished CEO, Qadeer Ahmed.

Qadeer and Pro Care have a vision to completely eliminate dental insurance from the profession and they’ve got the plan and resources to pull it off.

He went on to revamp three technology companies, provide game-changing advice to many Fortune 500 corporations and help another company obtain $1 billion in capital financing offers.

Qadeer’s team is creating what could be a revolution to the profession of dentistry and the way that offices get new patients, get compensated and manage cash flow and overhead.

Bedros is the founder and CEO of FitPro Newsletter, FitPro Magazine and one of the fastest growing fitness business franchises known worldwide, Fit Body Boot Camp. Today Bedros and I speak about his journey from having a personal mentor/business coach to becoming the high performance entrepreneur he is now. I also share my journey as one of Bedros’ coaching clients and how that experience has made an enormous contribution to my growth and success. Bedros and I speak about the growing popularity and benefits of belonging to a mastermind group. He also shares how he maintains balance in his professional and home life by creating discipline, structure and delegating.

More About This Show:

Bedros came to the United States with his family at the age of six from Armenia. With very meager beginnings, Bedros became a certified personal trainer. While he was working for a big box gym, as a fry cook at a theme park and as a bouncer, a client took a special interest in Bedros and began to mentor him in business and marketing. From this first experience in being coached, Bedros has proven to be a success in not only learning but coaching others and utilizing the concept of mastermind groups to take many entrepreneurs to level after level of success.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Why it is important to find a business coach that is relatable to you
  • How delegating tasks can actually get them done quicker
  • Why discipline, structure and delegation are important to work/life balance
  • How to prepare for creating your sidegig while still working full-time
  • Why doing one thing and doing it well is a good business model

dental practiceLook in any direction, and you’ll find dental practice “marketers” trying to sell you the newest, best and brightest shiny object that promises to send a flood of new patients through your doors.

From social media to SEO to pay-per-click to reputation management to limitless more traditional marketing channels, it’s becoming more and more difficult for any practice owner to know where to focus their attention and marketing budget.

In this week’s episode of the Dentalpreneur Podcast, I interview Cadu Medina, a marketing expert who holds degrees in both advertising and marketing and who has worked for some of the largest advertising firms in the world.

During the interview, we discus:

  • The foundational elements that must be in place in any practice prior to spending a significant amount of money on external marketing
  • The most important considerations when designing an effective marketing campaign
  • How to begin the marketing process that will ensure the greatest effectiveness
  • Which mediums are the most predictable when creating a marketing campaign
  • The lowest hanging fruit when it comes to new patient acquisition
