According to many close to me, I’ve always worked too much.
Gotta tell ya though, I love what I do. In fact, I’m writing this on a Sunday.
I spent all day Saturday working.
In fairness, I took Sun-Thur “off” but even then, I had some consulting calls to mix in while I was “out.”
This morning, I got a great email from Brian Kurtz. He was writing about his mentor and former employer, the late, great Marty Edelston.
One of the topics covered: Work:Life balance. And, probably because it fits me to a “T,” I love Marty’s take.
Here’s what the founder of Boardroom Reports believed about Work:Life balance; it was even printed on the back of his business card:
“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”
-Zen Buddhist Text
That explains me.
I hope you love what you do and get to keep doing it.
A couple of weeks ago I asked y’all to help me out by answering a survey about your biggest challenges in business and the results are in:
2. Operating as an effective CEO of your practice was the second challenge that dentists struggled with (coming in very close to number 1.)
3. Balancing the business side with the clinical side of practice was the least worrisome amongst dentists.
DIDN’T GET TO VOTE? VOTE NOW:
What is your biggest challenge in practice today? Is it…
All-in-all, these three were fairly close.
Thanks for helping me out by learning how to more effectively help you!
To learn more about how Jerry Jones Direct can help you reach your goals in practice, no matter what they are, a great place to start is the survey above!
Then, head on over to listen to what some of our Members are saying, here.
We’re excited to help you build the practice of your dreams!
Business is tough. It can be a grind, man.
Layer the clinical practice of dentistry on top…and you’ve got a double-whammy of a tough day.
Thing is, me and the business side of dentistry are real close. Like you, I’ve got a dental “practice.” (I call it an “office”)
Fortunately (very), I don’t have the clinical side to worry about.
But, just like you, I’ve got families I’m responsible to at my own dental office and here at Jerry Jones Direct, my two+ decade old patient attraction and retention marketing firm.
All-in, well over 30 families to worry, stress and sometimes, like you, lose sleep over.
Oddly enough, I consider it a privilege. An honor. (But it’s not for everyone, for sure.)
And, were it not for having honed my business chops over the last two decades, I wouldn’t live nearly the charmed life I’m fortunate to enjoy.
For example, this summer (and many previous), I’ve played more than worked, which is how summer should be!
In fact, I just returned from a week on Orcas Island with my family and I’m headed out again in a few more days for a week over on the Oregon Coast.
(Above, shot of me on the ‘yak, mooring buoy in the background, in Eastsound, WA, with a BOB setting sun (big orange ball), plying the waters of the Orcas. Photo courtesy of my wife, Tracy.)
Look, if you’re not getting the time out of the office you’d like, the days off…
…the income to spend freely on vacations
…RVs, cars, boats, investments, savings,
and you’re tired of the income roller coaster…
(or the consultant merry go-round)
…then your business might need some help.
To be blunt, if that’s the case –
…and if you’re not swimming in cash and free time – your own biz education might benefit from becoming a subscriber to my Business of Dentistry Audio Series, Dentistry Confidential®!

One-month old start-up practice owner, ClearPath Society® Member and proficient call tracking aficionado, Dr. Daniel Binkowski, has been with the ClearPath Society® since February 2017. Daniel was referred to us by Ideal Practices Founder, Mr. Jayme Amos. As adept as Dr. Binkowski is at using our Ad Systems to further his dental business he is also smart in utilizing our 15-year old, trademarked, Dental Health Care Club™ or DHCC. DHCC is a System created by ClearPath Society® Founder and dental office owner, Jerry Jones, to help his Guests (patients) at his Wellness Springs Dental® put their dental work into an in-house payment and savings program.
Daniel has done a fantastic job of making his dental practice “Real and Reachable.” Dr. Binkowski’s main goal for joining the ClearPath Society® was to blow the doors off his new, rural-Iowa start-up practice with huge numbers of new patients before he even opened; you will see in the graph below that he was succeeded! And, they keep coming in! He received 35 phone calls in the first 30 days; of those 35 phone calls nearly two-dozen made appointments and he’s been very pleased with the resulting production as well!
It is widely held that in a general practice Dentists pay upwards of $250 per each new patient across all media, including direct mail, newspaper, digital, etc. Daniel paid less than half of that at about $112. And again, he is still getting phone calls from his initial new patient blitz from an extremely conservative investment!
As a member of JJD’s ClearPath Society®, Daniel has continuous access to both a dedicated and experienced Graphic Designer and Member Ambassador along with JJD Founder, Mr. Jerry Jones, all of who guide doctors through successful deployment of ad strategies, tools and techniques. What’s more, phone success training is also a factor of Dr. Binkowski’s success with JJD.
