20/20 Money Episode #127 – Why “intentionality” is key to building a practice that serves you: my guest appearance on the IDOC Focal Point podcast

April 12, 2021

On this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is…me! This is a different solo episode of sorts, because it’s actually the interview that I did for IDOC’s Focal Point Podcast, hosted by Dr. Steve Vargo, OD. If you’re interested in subscribing to Focal Point Podcast, the link is in the show notes of this episode.

On this episode, Steve asked me to talk about how business and personal planning are integrated and why it’s important to understand and be able to answer the question “In service of what?” and “What are you solving for?” when structuring your practice. We also talk about a very impactful tax planning strategy that can potentially save and/or defer practice owners tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes in the year they sell their practice and the timeline to be aware of if you consider this strategy.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Triage conversation to learn a little bit more about how we help ODs around the country reduce their tax bill, manage cash flow, and make proactive money decisions or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Steve Vargo.
