Interview Transcript (Modified for Readability)

“My lecture today was [titled] Powerful Secrets. Somewhere in the middle, a slide comes up, ‘Here’s what most dentists read’ It’s Dentistry Today, Dental Economics, The Journal of the American Dental Association, The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry. And that’s great. You have to keep up with that.

But we’re running a business today. And there’s business journals and motivational journals that also have to be read. I believe Harvard Business Review is absolutely fantastic. Right below that, Success. Success Magazine is absolutely amazing, you will never be disappointed. Every one of my team members gets it. I bought it for them as an annual subscription.
