    • Entrepreneurship

In this episode of the Hero of the Hour, Mark is joined by Dr. Eric Studley, a friend and seasoned professional who shares his journey from dental school to the financial services industry. Eric recounts the significant challenges he faced, including not getting into dental school initially and eventually attending in Guadalajara, Mexico, before being accepted to NYU. After graduating, he quickly bought a struggling dental practice in Brooklyn, which he successfully revitalized. However, complications from multiple surgeries forced him to leave dentistry, leading to a career shift when he started working in the medical waste industry and later, insurance, despite initial reservations.
Eric's venture into the insurance business began modestly from the front seat of his car, gradually building a reputable firm focusing on the dental market. His success in the industry is attributed to his commitment to ethics and professional integrity, which he also emphasized during his time as a professor at NYU. Eric discusses the significance of ongoing education and ethical practice, both in finance and healthcare, and how his teaching role enriched his professional and personal growth.

Towards the end of the episode, Eric reflects on his work ethic and the integration of his career with personal values, emphasizing the importance of serving others and maintaining genuine relationships. He underscores the joy derived from mentoring and influencing others positively, both in business and in academic settings. Dr. Studley's story is not just about professional success but about adapting to life's challenges and making impactful connections that enhance both his life and those of others.
