Selling or buying an optometry practice? An update on practice transitions nationwide with Erik Ferjentsik, MBA

20/20 MONEY

11-12-2023 • 1 hr 1 min

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Erik Ferjentsik, MBA, founder of Visionary Practice Group.

Erik and I have good, spirited discussion about transitions and what he’s seeing in the marketplace right now. We spend some time giving an update on the state of private equity, some common mistakes that he sees being made, the difference of listing with a broker vs “just” paying for a valuation and then shopping/listing it on their own through their own network, and a number of other topics.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, be sure to subscribe to our monthly “planning life on purpose” newsletter that’s filled with tips and ideas to help you plan life on purpose. You can also set up a Triage conversation to learn a little bit more about how we serve in the capacity of a personal and professional CFO: helping OD practice owners around the country reduce their tax bill, proactively manage cash flow, and make prudent investment decisions both in and out of their practice to help them live their best life on purpose. You can also check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks, blog posts, and on-demand webinars. Lastly, if you’re interested in learning more about the upcoming launch of the 20/20 Money Membership, please check out the link in the Resources to learn more about what we have in store for you!

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Erik Ferjentsik.
