What if you could hang out with healthcare private practice owners (optometrists, plastic surgeons, chiropractors, orthopedists, family practitioners, disease specialists, and more), having rich conversations about their successes and failures, their world-views and habits; then take an insight or two to inspire your own growth? That’s what we do each week on Practice Freedom.

Hosted by business coach Mark Henderson Leary, every episode is an in-depth look at how to get the most out of our people, our business, and most of all, ourselves. The goal is to help you make a bigger impact with your business and in your personal life while scaling your private practice to multiple locations and helping as many people as possible.
