Doing it

A sage once said:
“the difference between doing something and not doing something is doing it”
Last week I enjoyed a late tipple with Marcus and Louise Spry from Fresh Dental Care in Maidstone.
10 years ago they weren’t enjoying their mixed practice – so they did something about it and converted to private.
5 years ago they weren’t enjoying their private practice – so they did something about it and sold it.
4 years ago they sat at my Cornish dining table and we co-created a 36-month spreadsheet for a new practice.
2.5 years ago they realised a dream and opened a private squat.
The spreadsheet (much amended!) became Fresh Dental Care.
They did it.
They refused to tolerate, took action and evolved.
So can you.
Marcus, Louise – thanks for the company, the pint and the reminder that there are no limits to our potential.
