Starting an Optometry Practice Cold
With a wealth of experience in optometry and starting new businesses, we can help you with many aspects of your new venture.
You’re thinking of starting an optometry practice. First let us say, “Whoa! You’ve got guts.” You are also in for a steep learning curve, sleepless nights, and glorious days.
Our founder, Roxanne Arnal, never started an optometry practice cold, but she did start her financial planning business years ago with only herself as a client. Based on her experience in optometry and starting a business, we know there are definitely some tough growing pains ahead and you need to have the financial fortitude to weather the storm. We’re here to help you make sense of all the moving pieces involved with starting a practice.
Do you understand the difference between purchasing and leasing? Is your butt (and your income) covered? How much should you take as salary versus dividends versus reinvesting? We will educate you along the way and ensure that a thorough risk management assessment is completed.
We understand what it means to own a growing business. We grew our optometry practice from one doctor to 2.6 doctors—a full time staff equivalent of 3.5 to 12. Managing is both rewarding and challenging, and we’re here to help guide you as you learn the skills required to manage a thriving optometry practice.
