184: Selling Your Practice to a Private Equity Firm
It is becoming more and more common for physician groups to be approached by a private equity firm that wants to buy the practice and make them “more efficient.” Of course the older partners think that this is a good time to sell. The younger doctors thought they just joined a partnership and were looking forward to owning their business and having control. What do you do if you are the younger doctor? We discuss some ideas in this episode that will hopefully help, if you find yourself in this situation.
We also answer a lot of other listener question about challenges facing families with children with special needs, small business retirement accounts, understanding a wash sale, reporting the backdoor Roth IRA with a loss, understanding dividend stock investing, the S&P 500 vs total stock market index fund, and what recommendations I have for medical students to do early in their career to prepare themselves for entering the workforce.
