Being intentional with cash flow around year-end planing with Jackson Pace, CPA

20/20 MONEY

04-12-2023 • 48 mins

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Jackson Pace, founder of the Refractional CFO. Jackson and I talk through some of the year-end planning considerations that are likely on OD practice owners’ minds and how to think through that decision matrix. We talk about the importance of essentially beginning with the end in mind, evaluating paying cash vs financing a new piece of equipment, how purchasing equipment should be thought of for owners that are looking to sell in the near future, and other mistakes and misunderstandings that we’ve both observed in the work that we do.

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.
