With your practice revenues down and your workload–from increased client contact and possibly a few new clients–up, I realize that reviewing your own financial plan probably isn’t high on your priority list right now. But it should be. My advice to my clients and to you is to take a page out of Nike’s book and “just do it.”
With practice revenues down, chances are your own pension/SEP/KEOGH/IRA/401(k)/Cayman account is going to be, or is already, underfunded. And if selling your practice was part of your retirement funding, it’s probably worth less than you projected, too. So you just have to bite the bullet, and do for yourself what you’re doing or will be doing with many of your clients: Considering your options and coming up with a new plan.
