What do most business owners have in common? A lack of freedom.
If you're like most owners, tied to the business, you likely:
- Actively work in the business, trading your time for dollars.
- Follow Wall Street's advice, putting your savings away until "retirement," rather than putting it to work today.
- Wonder whether you'll ever have "enough" to step away from full-time active work.
If you've picked up this book, odds are that you aren't as free as you could be. But there's another way. Instead of working to own your business, it's time to work to own your freedom. When you own your freedom, you're tied to the business no more, able to choose why and how to spend your time and money.
In Own Your Freedom, co-authors Dr. David Phelps and Dan S. Kennedy describe the freedom you can enjoy when you earn passive income through capital investments like real estate. By investing in your capital, the people in your life, and your skills, you can achieve freedom well before a fabled retirement date. Whether you're a young professional just out of college, or a veteran business owner yearning for the next chapter in life, this book shows you how to start today.
Dr. David Phelps is America's #1 Authority on creating freedom in life and business. At the same time, Dan S. Kennedy is familiar to most as a celebrated marketing genius and author of the NO B.S. series of business books. Together, the authors guide you through the process and steps required to Own Your Freedom.
Dr. David Phelps, DDS, owned and managed a private practice dental office for over twenty-one years before his daughter's health crisis served as a dramatic wake-up call in his life. David's "Plan B" portfolio of cash-flow producing real estate assets gave him the Freedom to sell his practice mid-career and focus 100 percent on what matters most. He is the author of From High Income to High Net Worth, What's Your Next?, The Apprentice Model, and Selling Your Practice. David is a nationally recognized speaker and founder of the Freedom Founders Community, providing a pathway to freedom for professional practice and small business owners.
