Jarod Carter is often asked what the key to success is as an entrepreneur. Based on what he’s observed in his own businesses as well as the many other practice owners he’s coached in his Mastermind group, the main factor governing your results is always the perspective you apply as you begin. By mastering the right mindset, you can create a fulfilling opportunity to serve your patients instead of turning yourself into a stressed-out workaholic.

In this week’s episode, he explains his own entrepreneurial background and walks you through the specific mindset shifts that he believes are critical to cultivating a business you will love to be a part of in the long term.

This “highlight” is taken from Q&A calls with his Mastermind Gold group — a highly interactive, supportive group where people who have tons of questions and concerns about how to start, grow, or transition to a cash-based private practice get the answers, resources, and confidence they need to build the practice of their dreams.

More specifically, he discusses these cash-based practice topics:

  • The perspective shift that will keep you from burning out early in the life of your new practice.
  • Why approaching your business with the right mindset will help keep your passion alive and allow you to enjoy the work for years to come.
  • The personal-development technique he used to become a dramatically more effective entrepreneur.
  • Why comparing your results to others who appear to be succeeding more quickly can make it difficult to create a thriving practice.
  • Some of the many places he has looked to find no-cost inspiration, information, and advice on his entrepreneurial adventures.
