Larry Brent

Dentist

While being your own boss has a host of benefits, Larry Brent, owner of Brent Dental Arts also knows the challenges.

But slow payments from patients and insurance companies meant some months showed negative cash flow. Larry needed wiggle room to keep growing his practice.

Dr. Steven

Physician

When Dr. Steven, a hospitalist in Michigan, started his own practice, he wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming tax complications he would face. Compounding interest, high rates, and penalties kept his payments from making a dent. He was losing focus on his practice and he needed help fast.
