    Affiliations Strategy Details: the Interview with Ryan Metzler of Stock Legal

    Affiliations Strategy Details: the Interview with Ryan Metzler of Stock Legal

    The "Affiliations Model" has generated a TON of interest and inquiries, so I decided to bring Ryan Metzler of the Stock Legal firm on the show to dive deep into the details. We slice and dice the legal context around ownership, fees, agreements, PIUs, change management and the potential journey at hand. There's so much to cover, we even decided to host a two-day "Working Group" session on "Mergers, Acquisitions & Affiliations" here in Charlotte on November 4&5.

    Enterprise Software Strategy with Carestack's Jim Gerson

    Enterprise Software Strategy with Carestack's Jim Gerson

    Your practice management system should be one of THE cornerstones of your organic growth strategy, but all too often it's treated as just another marginal operational device. Carestack's VP of Sales & Marketing, Jim Gerson, gives us a LOT to think about when it comes to things like: historical versus predictive reporting capabilities; compliance versus strategic application; and increasing attraction and retention of new patients simply by making things convenient and efficient. He'll also share some insights into the data and analysis they derive from their user base. We cover all of that along with Polaris's effort to support the children of Afghanistan through the UNICEF Foundation. We'll match your donations up to $5,000 viz the website:

    Aligning Interests through Equity Structures

    Aligning Interests through Equity Structures

    It's time to stop playing "small ball" with your emerging group. Equity may be your most valuable currency, so listen in as Diwakar and I unpack some of the ways to think about using equity to your advantage for growing your group. There's a reason so many Enterprise-level DSOs use an "equity roll" as a key selling point when it comes to convincing people to join their group - and you can do the same! We cover all of that along with the latest addition to our Data & Analytics team, Chris Yanes, and Dr. Nimesh Patel donates an Ember Coffee Mug to my growing coffee addiction. It's all on today's podcast!

    Mergers Instead of Acquisitions?!

    Mergers Instead of Acquisitions?!

    When it comes to M&A, everybody knows the "A," but what about the "M?" On today's show we're putting the "M" in Mergers. What about using mergers as part of your growth strategy? How would you do it? What are some aspects to think about? Where are the opportunities? And how would mergers be different from acquisitions? Equity is your most valuable currency, so let's start thinking about it differently in terms of growing your business. All of that along with your host's favorite coffee and his favorite podcasts. It's all on today's show!

    Getting Your Ownership Structure Straight

    Getting Your Ownership Structure Straight

    You bought or built your first location outright, then you added a second location with a 50-50 partner...and then you both went in on a third location with a third partner. Now you've all decided you need to form a management company because you want to grow to 10+ locations, so how do you figure out who owns what percentage of what?! Sound familiar? We encounter this scenario frequently and we've seen a LOT of it lately. Getting your equity "capitalization table" straight impacts your ability to govern the business and grow the business. I talk through this scenario in an effort to shed some light on the mathematical component as well as the emotional component. Getting your partnership equity structure "right" early on is critical to your future success.
    That discussion and favorite day planner, the "Self Journal," all on today's show.

Great Podcast

I originally met Perrin on a bicycle ride. And have been hearing from him ever since. Always a wealth of knowledge on dental business. Nowadays there seems to be a ton of dental podcasts, all talking about the same thing. Group Practice Accelerator Podcast stands out. Their content is fresh and applicable. And yes the brew on that Keurig is awful. Nespresso is better.

Perrin and Diwakar are amazing at diving into hot topics and giving honest expert opinions on the subject matter. Always excited for the next episode to come. Perrin is spot on about Keurig Coffee being an awful brew :)
