20/20 Money Episode #176: KPIs, profit loss plinko, generational human capital management, and buying or selling in today’s market with Dr. Solomon Gould, OD MBA

March 25, 2022

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Solomon Gould, OD MBA (Facebook. LinkedIn, Instagram, Email).

In addition to owning two private practices in MN and being part of a multigenerational optometric family, Solomon is a speaker, author, practice management consultant, and all-around glass-half-full kind of guy and I really enjoyed this conversation with him. Our conversation first starts with us talking about KPIs in a practice and which ones to focus on and which ones to not focus as much attention. We then pivot the conversation, diving into the human capital conundrum that a lot of practice owners are feeling right now and how generational differences can impact the way that practice owners should be showing up in their practice and how they lead their team. We also discuss ways in which practice owners can reduce their expenses, the value of buying groups, why online scheduling is table stakes for practice owners right now, and whether we’d each rather be a buyer or a seller right now in today’s market. Last but certainly not least, I give Solomon an acuity check on the spot and he shares his answer to the question that we ask every first-time guest on the show.

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, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and 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, proactively manage cash flow, and make prudent investment decisions or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks, blog posts, and on-demand webinars.

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Solomon Gould.
