20/20 Money Episode #60 – Personal Budgeting Tips and Tools for Optometrists and Private Practice Owners

December 30, 2019

Hello, and welcome to the last episode in 2019 of 20/20 Money! In this final episode of the year, I spend time talking about how important it is to take time to measure where your money is going in your personal life and how the only way to really get a good picture of that is by analyzing your spending by running a personal budget. I talk about the different kinds of expenses to track and a number of tools that you can use to help you kick-start the process of analyzing your spending.

I then discuss how having clarity and confidence around your personal expenses can help you make clear and confident decisions in your practice. Whether your practice is set up as a partnership, corporation, or LLC I’ll provide you some guidance and information on how you can think about paying yourself in multiple different ways with the net profitability of the practice.

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 15min pre-discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.
