Abstract:

"Does your current work situation bother you? Do things beyond the ordinary, day-to-day issues of working in a business environment - such as lack of input into important company decisions and compensation - continue to frustrate you? If you're tired of working for someone else and have contemplated striking out on your own, Starting Your Own Practice: The Independence Guide for Professional Service Providers can help make the transition as smooth as possible."

"Written from the perspective of successful entrepreneur and investment advisor, Robert Fragasso, Starting Your Own Practice has been designed to help professionals who provide skilled personal service - especially those who already have experience as investment advisors, brokers, consultants, attorneys, and accountants, as well as insurance and real estate agents - make the right choices as they pursue their independent business endeavors. But, the principles contained here are also readily transferable to a much wider segment of the service sector, including computer programmers, architects, and healthcare professionals."--Jacket.
