I have always been a fighter, and coupled with that, I have always thrived on proving wrong anyone and everyone who dared to tell me "you can't" or "you wont." That was my fuel. What motivated me everyday to sacrifice whatever I had to sacrifice to be a success.
You Can't: Rise above your station in life...but I did.
You Can't: Marry the most beautiful and sought after woman in our high school...but I did.
You Won't: Make it into Dental School...but I did.
You Can't: Earn your MBA while simultaneously earning your dental degree...but I did.
You Won't: Be successful in building a niche dental practice in the most saturated dental market in the U.S...but hell yes I did.
You Can't: Rival a conglomerate like Clear Choice with a local homegrown practice...but I am. With outstanding results. I am.
