Finding a mentor is such commonly shared advice that it’s almost cliché. Yet, without a doubt it is a crucial part to your development.

When I think about the mentors in my life, not all of them were two way relationships, some we’re people I listened to and absorbed wisdom from over many years.

Dr Jesse Green falls squarely into this type of mentor for me. Through the Savvy Dentist Podcast, his blogs, books and courses I have learnt an immense amount about business, communication and practice ownership. I’ve been fortunate enough to form a real relationship with Dr Jesse Green while managing and creating www.cpdjunkie.com.au and the learning hasn’t stopped.

This has been one of my favourite episodes and without doubt you will get pearls of wisdom from it. A fitting way to see out 2020.
