    Creating a Practice AND a life you love - living with passion, intention, gratitude and grace

    Creating a Practice AND a life you love - living with passion, intention, gratitude and grace

    How would it feel if what you love … became the life you live?

    In this episode Martin Pigg discusses why you need to stop listening to the folks who tell you that whatever you want to do with your life is impossible. And he’s not just talking about the people you know! There are plenty of people you don’t know but see in the media who have a negative world view that is more about who they are, than who you aspire to be. 

    The fact is that, out of the 8 billion people on this planet, you are the only person who will ever be able to do what you can do in the way that you can do it.

    Martin Pigg is an author, speaker and coach in the personal mastery arena and his mission is to radically elevate global happiness with The PIGG Principle. 

    For fun Martin flies airplanes, lifts weights, and occasionally wears a speedo on stage. 

    In this episode we discuss:





    [2:47] - First off, you need to understand Martin, specifically he’s back story and how he has become the coach and leader he is today.
    [11:29] - Finding your passion is an important discovery for us all. Martin describes how you can find your passion. Key ingredients will be your ‘intention’ and ‘gratitude’.
    [20:22] - So why do we lose sight of our passion? And how can we live a true life and apply it to our business life. 

    [23:07] - Martin explains a process for your passion to find you. Your purpose will find you. Purpose is an ideal, just like happiness is an ideal. So find something you enjoy that you can be intentional about, and your purpose (and happiness) will find you.

    [25:24] - Most of us live our lives unintentionally. Martin explains the role of ‘intention’. The energy of what you do and who you connect to.
    [35:38] - Often we forget to acknowledge ‘how far we’ve come’ and what we’ve achieved. So take the time to focus on the view and stop being so hard on yourself. Martin describes how grace and gratitude can help you to achieve this.
    [35:38] - Often we forget to acknowledge ‘how far we’ve come’ and what we’ve achieved. So take the time to focus on the view and stop being so hard on yourself. Martin describes how grace and gratitude can help you to achieve this.
    [38:49] - “Never allow the voices of mediocrity to silence the whispers of your own soul” - Optimise your life and your business to maximise your business joy.

    The Lost Superpower of Practice Owners

    The Lost Superpower of Practice Owners

    John Reid is the Founder, President and Lead Designer of JMReid Group, a global behavior change organization specialising in leadership, development, sales effectiveness and skill enhancement.
    After John survived three bouts of cancer, he decided to pursue his passion for learning and development with a belief that people want to get better and can get better, but it is often the manner in which traditional training is designed and delivered that makes this desire for growth difficult.
    John is the author of Moving from Models to Mindsets: Rethinking the Sales Conversation and, The Five Lost Superpowers.

    In this episode we discuss:





    [7:13] - Curiosity is a lost ‘superpower’ according to John. He explains how your curiosity can be applied in your practice and why it’s OK to be wrong sometimes.

    [11:13] - Having an attachment to being ‘right’ all the time can be an ‘ability bias’ that causes more stress in your business than necessary.

    [13:20] - How well we make decisions, impacts our outcomes in our practice. So do you go with your ‘gut’ … or not go with your gut? Even when we’re wrong, we tell ourselves we’re right. Asking questions and being curious truly is a ‘superpower’ for you. 
    [19:55] - Let’s talk about accountability.
    [25:15] - Does your team want to be heard? Or do they want to be understood? John breaks down how your leadership can explore the accountability of your team.
    [28:36] - As Dentist’s we are schooled to be ‘right’ most of the time, however in business, things are murky, we aren’t always ‘right’. Leadership, to do it well, is about being ok that we may not be right. So what are you about? And are you modeling these attributes?

    [36:05] - Can we change our identity from (for example) I was a command and control kinda person, and now I want to be a more entrepreneurial type of person?


    [40:21] - So if ‘curiosity’ is one of the 5 superpowers … what are the other 4 and how can you utilise them everyday in your practice?

    How to recover from burnout

    How to recover from burnout

    Are you feeling burnt out at work?
    Burnout is a state of physical and mental exhaustion caused by excessive, prolonged stress. It can happen to anyone who works too hard for too long without taking care of themselves.
    But it doesn’t have to be that way!

    Life Coach for high-achievers and host of the “Burnout To Leadership” Podcast Dex Randall joins Jesse in this episode to discuss Burnout. What is it, how do we recognise it, and how can we move through it and become stronger and more authentic within ourselves.

    Dex Randall has carved a career from his own personal burnout story, and now helps professionals beat burnout - so press play and get your mojo back.

    In this episode we discuss:





    [3:59] - The amount of pressure that we’ve all experienced within recent COVID times has caused a cumulative stress load. So is burnout more prevalent now post COVID or is it simply something we are more aware of now? 

    [6:28] - Disconnection can be a big identifier of burnout, Dex discusses the other factors that can identify burnout.

    [9:12] - Dex describes his experience of burnout where physically, it never killed him. 
    [14:01] - What are we likely to be feeling, thinking, and experiencing if we are heading towards burnout? 
    [17:28] - Our inner critic is yelling at us all day … Dex shares some tools to conquer the feelings and affects of burnout?
    [23:19] - The ability to be able to say ‘no’ can be so powerful for our health.

    [26:57] - When we’re on a downhill slope it can be challenging to get off that slide. Dex and Jesse discuss some pattern-interrupts that will help if you are feeling the symptoms of burnout.


    [31:19] - So what does post burnout look like? Dex has shared a free video series especially for listeners of the Savvy Dentist Podcast.

    Creating your dream practice

    Creating your dream practice

    In today’s world, a lot of things are instant … However, success is not!
    In this episode Jesse gives you the big picture vision tools to ensure you are moving your practice, and your life, towards the success you desire.

    We can’t let our life be swamped by the business, so it’s time to get clear and set yourself up for the next 10 years.

    Application of principles over a period of time is the winning formula. 
    So … what are your ‘principles’?
    Where we place our time, energy, attention, money, and effort … and how we use them, is what determines our success.

    Episode highlights 





    [2:19] - Intent + Design. How to create a practice by design, and a life with intent.
    [4:51] - For your business to give you everything that you want … you gotta know what it is that YOU want!
    [6:35] - How does a life wheel work and how can you apply the same tool and principles to your life design.
    [9:15] - We drastically overestimate what we can achieve in 12 months, and radically underestimate what we can achieve in a decade. We often set ourselves up for failure by wanting instant results. If you stay the course, you will achieve way more.
    [10:59] - So let’s set a 10 year vision for your practice. There are 4 types of ‘time’ that we need to get clear on, and Jesse walks through each of these to help you understand.

    [13:51] - Goal setting ensures you have achievable, time relevant, and achievable tasks to ensure you reach your vision. Jesse explains how to understand your ‘effective hourly rate’.

    [18:52] - So what are the 4 types of Business Model and which one do you want?

    [23:52] - The emotional connection that we have to our vision is what will pull us through the inevitable tough times. So let’s get clear on the exact tasks to focus on in the next 3 months.
