20/20 Money Episode # 132 – Warming up to cold starts (Part 2) with Drs. Eric Baas and Bob Steinmetz of iCare Advisors

May 17, 2021

On this episode of 20/20 Money! My guests on today’s show are Drs. Eric Baas and Bob Steinmetz, co-founders of iCare Advisors.

If you missed last week’s interview or this is your first time checking out 20/20 Money, please go back and check out last week’s interview. You don’t need to listen to that one first to gain value from the rest of our conversation, but you’ll definitely want to go back and give that a listen as there was a lot of great information.

As I mentioned in the intro last week, we continue the conversation today by discussing the runway to profitability and how they think about the return on investment in equipment in a cold start, how you grow into the next “chapter” of the practice’s life cycle, why a 2nd location might be better than expansion of your existing location, staffing and scheduling best practices, their outlook on cold starts and private equity’s influence on the success of cold starts, and we wrap it up with their insightful answers to the one question I ask every first-time guest of 20/20 Money.

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 the rest of my conversation with Eric Baas and Bob Steinmetz.
