ABSTRACT: Selling a private practice can be a lucrative experience that funds the owner’s retirement and rewards them for years of hard work. It can also be nearly impossible for those who don’t adequately prepare. Learn how to treat your practice like an investment rather than just a career, with examples from actual transactions involving audiology practices, and put yourself in position to celebrate the sale of your practice as a joyous – and profitable – event.
