David Phelps, D.D.S. owned and managed a private practice dental office for over 21 years.
While still in dental school, he began his investment in real estate by joint-venturing with his father on their first rental property in 1980. Three years later, they sold the property and David took his $25,000 capital gain share and leveraged it into thirty-one properties that produced $15,000 net cash flow within 15 years.
Multiple health crises suffered by his daughter, Jenna (leukemia, epilepsy and a liver transplant at age 12), caused David to leave the practice so that his time could be spent with his daughter. Unfortunately, a divorce and failed practice sale provided additional setbacks that he had to work through.
Today, David is a nationally recognized speaker on creating freedom, building real businesses and investing in real estate. He authors a monthly newsletter, “Path to Freedom” and hosts “The Dentist Freedom Blueprint” podcast. Freedom Founders Mastermind Community has grown to over fifty members, providing the pathway to freedom for many professional practice owners. He is also a huge advocate for joining a real estate mastermind group and explains why in our conversation.
“The greatest risk in life is doing nothing.” - David Phelps

Cory Boatright has started, run, or been directly involved with almost 40 different companies ever since his early twenties. After bringing in almost 4 million dollars in sales from the first company, he sold it and directed his passion to the world of real estate investing.
Well, most of his affluent customers in his first business owned real estate so he knew there was something to be learned in that industry. He was a complete novice to it and didn’t even graduate from high school.
He started as a “bird dog” and quickly learned how much money the investor was making selling the houses he was bringing him. So he quickly learned how to assign, wholesale and flip distressed properties. He then put together a skeleton rehab crew tho his rehab attempts ended up being more of a mirage instead of a real profit center.
Around year 2004 that he stumbled his way through a short sale and made over $30,000 on that first short sale deal!
He soon became known as the local “go-to” guy for doing short sales. After discovering a loophole in the short sale submission process he partnered to create a short sale software that grew to over 5000 users.
Cory has become an International speaker, real estate trainer and coach, book author, private consultant and real estate investor. He also serves on the BOD for a landlord and property investor association in Oklahoma City called ”Millionaire Possibilities” (MPREIA). He’s published in the Wall Street Journal for successful business aptitude and voted #4 in the world out of nearly 30,000 others by Fast Company Magazine Social Influence Project as “Most Influential Marketer”.
The biggest lesson I have learned in life is: “Be a solutions provider by asking how you can serve one another better. The rewards of servanthood are invaluable”- Cory Boatright
