Are you doing the most to maximize your profits and sustainability? Discover detailed steps necessary to effectively run your practice and achieve profitable, client-focused results. This is the industry’s first book to address an often-overlooked topic: Business of Financial Planning. In today’s increasingly competitive marketplace, fine-tuning your practice management skills is a necessity—while allowing more time to cultivate new business and focus on clients. The authors deliver practical insight into selecting a business model as well as the advantages and disadvantages of relevant topics including owning a practice.

Knowledgeable strategies delve into:

  • Cultivating a practice through hands-on planning processes
  • Selecting software/hardware based on size & scope
  • Increasing business through market share & credibility analysis
  • Evolving a practice to satisfy market demands & new opportunities
  • Designing a competitive fee structure that yields acceptable profits

What does practice management do for you?

“Long before I got to the end of the book, I felt like I was having a private consulting arrangement with the authors worth thousands of dollars. Every page is packed with indispensable alternatives and understanding. This is an extraordinarily valuable work containing not only their years of experience and uncommon wisdom, but also some of the best thinking from dozens of leading practitioners. Not a theory book, but a practical guide to organizing and running a practice today.”
— J. Jeffry Lambert, CFP®, Co-Managing Partner, Lighthouse Financial Planning, LLC Program Director, Personal Financial Planning Certificate Program, University of California , Davis Extension
