All Posts

On today’s episode, we continue our Part 2 of our discussion with Troy Eckard on the Dentalpreneur podcast! In this episode, we delve into a non-windfall case study, which will resonate with many listeners who haven’t experienced a significant liquidation event but are still earning substantial incomes.

We discuss the scenario of a dental professional making a million dollars a year without a windfall in sight. Troy uses his own experience to illustrate how to strategically allocate free cash flow above basic living expenses. For instance, with a gross income of a million dollars and $300,000 covering fundamental needs, the remaining $700,000 can be wisely invested. Troy explains the benefits of putting a portion into drilling investments to save on taxes while diversifying into various asset classes for growth and security.

Troy emphasizes the value of mineral rights as an investment, especially in today’s market where technological advancements have reduced risks. He shares examples of partners who have successfully built their portfolios by reinvesting dividends and acquiring more mineral assets over time. These investments provide long-term, compounding income, making them ideal for professionals looking to build a substantial nest egg for retirement.

We also touch on the unique advantages of mineral rights, including the lack of holding costs and liabilities, and the consistent demand for oil and gas. Troy explains how strategic investments in minerals can offer a high return with minimal risk, leveraging the stability and growth of the oil and gas industry.

Finally, we explore what to do if you suddenly realize mid-year that you owe a significant tax bill. Troy advises on the importance of finding secure, tax-deductible investments to offset liabilities and create long-term income. He stresses the need to work with reputable partners and diversify investments to mitigate risks.

Troy’s insights highlight the importance of smart investment strategies tailored to individual financial situations, whether dealing with windfalls or substantial annual incomes.
