What does growth look like in an ideal world? In a medical practice, how many patients do you hope to serve? What does success look like, and who are we relying on to drive that success? Forming a partnership in a medical practice—or in any other business—is a critically important decision, and these questions must be asked from the onset. So, in this episode, I will be talking about four areas of important consideration if you’re thinking about starting a company with another person or joining a medical practice with a partner.
Listen in as I explain the importance of understanding the life cycle of a practice, as well as what a potential exit may look like and how to approach this topic with a potential partner to ensure they’re a good fit. You’ll learn how to decide who is in charge of different tasks, the benefit of having an honest conversation with your prospective partners around finances, and why it is always better to decide if you’re a good match with a partner before you sign any documents.
