20/20 MONEY

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Bethany Fishbein, CEO of The Power Practice and host of the Power Hour podcast.

On today’s episode we continue our dialogue that we started on my last appearance on the Power Hour podcast, which was around year-end planning. However, this conversation starts with the non-financial decision-making process that practice owners should be considering as they map out the direction of their practice going into the new year, specifically around the addition of treatments, therapies, and services they can provide to their patients.

Bethany shares great insights on how practice owners can start thinking about which treatment/therapies/services ODs should consider in their practice, the dangers of giving into FOMO and the bandwagon effect, how to present change to both your team as well as an associate OD you might have in the practice, and the importance of understanding the opportunity cost of these decisions. We wrap up conversation by distilling all of this down into the most important KPI (key performance indicator) that you should be tracking and reconciling a decision like this against in your practice.

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 your 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 ultimately help them live their best life on purpose.
