Navigating the financial intricacies of healthcare practice ownership can be daunting, but with co-owner and CFO of Econologics Financial Advisors Eric Miller’s expertise, you're in for a wealth of knowledge.

On this episode of Practice Freedom, Mark sits down with Eric to unravel the ACE model—Acquire, Control, Expand—and view your practice as a pivotal investment. The conversation ventures into how mindset influences spending and financial strategy, and we address the integration of personal and business financial planning to sculpt a thriving career in healthcare.

The path to mastering money management for business owners is often rocky, but this conversation leads the way to avoiding the pitfalls. We unearth the power of assigning every dollar a purpose, inspired by the “Profit First” system, and discuss the discipline needed for a profit-oriented organization.
