Starting Your Network – Part 1 of 2


A question that I am often asked is “How do I start a DSO” or “What’s the first thing that I should do when starting a network”?

Just to clarify before we start, what we are talking about is not the corporate DSO’s but rather networks of no more than 15 to 20 offices.

Should You Increase Your Revenue, or Decrease Your Expenses?


We have previously addressed the issue that practice value is a function of profit. Increasing your profit not only provides you with more cash flow, it also increases the value of your practice.  Profit is the result of subtracting your expenses from your gross revenues, so to increase your net profit you can do it by increasing your gross, decreasing your costs or a combination of the two.  A combination of the two would…
