20/20 Money Episode #144 – Key considerations when thinking about partnership (and what solo owners can learn from it)

August 9, 2021

On this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Nathan Hayes. Long time listeners will know that Nathan and I can talk about almost any business subject that impacts optometrists, and today’s topic is no different but it’s one that I think is going to resonate with a lot of OD practice owners: key considerations when evaluating partnerships within your practice. In this conversation, Nathan and I talk about when you should you consider a partner and whether the practice can support it (hint, if you’re below $1.4MM in top line revenue, you’re probably not ready), partnership compensation structures, the importance of recognizing admin/leadership time and pay for partners, and a number of other topics. It’s a conversation that I thoroughly enjoyed and believe you will as well.

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 Nathan Hayes.
