What a godsend, concise, no sponsors, no fluff

This is an amazing podcast for those who are on the edge, thinking of purchasing a practice, or starting the journey of practice ownership of finding and buying a practice. It’s super helpful with gold nuggets in each episode. Season 2 is especially awesome when he starts interviewing doctors who went through the experience of purchasing a practice and he also summarizes the key points of each interview at the end. You can see that Brian really puts in time and effort planning each of these episodes to make sure the information is concise and there’s no rambling or tangents. It’s so great of him to provide all this resource for free!

Must listen!

Incredibly helpful podcast about buying a dental practice. If you are thinking about buying a practice, this is a must-listen.
The current season is a deep-dive about getting a practice loan. The host Brian Hanks asks bankers from two companies about getting a loan. Very cool format.

Must listen

It’s hard to describe all the ways this podcast has been helpful in my journey to buying a practice. I cannot imagine going through this process without having Brian coach me along. There is so much I didn’t know that I didn’t know and getting other resources for help are not easy to find. Brian explains his recommendations easily and without unnecessary information. An absolute must listen!
