We’re nearing the end of another year. BV professionals are holding their collective breath while Congress grapples with tax reform that could eliminate the estate tax. In the meantime, you can’t afford to lose your practice management focus. That’s why our Business of Valuation newsletter is your go-to source for information and advice.

Smaller BV practices often hesitate to reach out to us because they operate with misunderstandings or myths. Mark Orndorff, a Principal with Southard Financial, sets the record straight. Read about how the right comps are key to your work and to assessing your candidates. No one likes to see employees leave. Sarah LaFon gives you suggestions for better retention. And, finally, Ellen Warden writes about how you can deal with “feedback phobia” and deliver the guidance your staff needs if they’re going to grow.

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]
