The dog days of summer are just ahead. As hot and slow as the weather can make you feel, you can’t afford to take your foot off the gas when it comes to running your practice. Your Business of Valuation newsletter is here to help you steer a smarter course.

Nobody likes to see anyone fail. But if your staff can’t fail they can’t grow. More importantly, your practice can’t grow. Ellen Warden explains more in our leadoff article. Read about the Goldilocks Trap and ways to avoid it. If you think there’s no way experience could be a bad thing, we have a surprise for you. Finally, we listened in to the first Practice Development INSIDER webinar with Rod Burkert and Chris Mercer. We’re here to tell you: Don’t miss the next one.

We want you to get more out of this newsletter than the time you put into reading it. We always welcome your comments and suggestions for information that would be useful in your practice. We also invite you to contribute material. Send us an email to: [email protected]
