Step 2 of forming your Private Practice
Now that you have created your board of advisors, the second step of setting up a practice is putting yourself in the financial position to open up your own Practice. You need Liquidity, Credit, and typically a Banking relationship to fund your start up.

  1. Liquidity

  • Most of my clients are saving in their cash accounts or short term mutual fund strategies that are conservative with little deviation
  1. Credit
  • Know your credit score!

  1. Payment history,
  2. Credit balances
  1. Banking relationship
