Dr. Paul Etchison is a dentist, practice owner, podcaster, coach and writer! Etch has recently released his second book entitled "Dental Practice Heroes II, the sequel: How a 3 Day Work Week Can Give You the Life You Want." Paul joins Alan for this entertaining conversation about how he found himself burned out even when he was very successful. His transition to 3 days a week has changed his role more from dentist to business owner where he works ON his business more than IN his business. Is this for everyone? Maybe not, but we discuss how it could fit into the practice owner's life. Our discussion covers burnout, leadership, delegation and the idea that clinical dentistry isn't necessarily the end-all!
