20/20 Money Episode #187 – When is your practice ready for an associate (and how do you prep for it) with Nathan Hayes of IDOC

June 6, 2022

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Nathan Hayes with IDOC.

In this conversation Nathan and I talk through the qualitative and quantitative metrics and mindsets to consider when identifying whether and when your practice is ready to add an associate. We talk about the importance of beginning with the end in mind, the steps to consider when adding an associate, how the math works in which you’ll make more money working less in the practice, and how practices can end up making LESS money as they get bigger by losing focus on the business.

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 Nathan Hayes.
