From the Publisher

Financial planning is a young industry. The International Association of Financial Planning—one of the predecessors to the Financial Planning Association—was formed less than forty years ago. But as the profession's first tier of advisers reaches maturity, the decisions that may be part of transition planning for their firms loom large. A sale? A partner buyout? A merger? No matter what the choice, its viability hinges on one critical issue—the value of the firm.

Unfortunately, many advisers--whether veteran or novice—simply don't know the worth of their practice or how to influence it. That's why How to Value, Buy, or Sell a Financial-Advisory Practice is such an important book. It takes advisers carefully through the logic and the legwork of coming to a true assessment of one of their most important personal assets—their business.

Renowned for their years of experience helping advisers tackle the daunting challenges related to the valuation, sale, and purchase of advisory firms, Mark C. Tibergien and Owen Dahl offer guidance that's essential and solutions that work.

Eileen never knew what she'd find when she opened the door--a chipmunk, vole, mole or bird. Nimbus was easily forgiven--he was a cat, operating solely on instinct. Far more accountable are those who manage their business the way Nimbus operated his--by plopping the unwanted and often distasteful straight into our unsuspecting laps under the guise of "marketing." Here are my top picks for business marketing efforts that are as distasteful as dead cri

How to Balance Your Personal and Professional Presence Online

As Twitter has grown in influence as both a social platform and a communication channel for companies, I have recalibrated the way I interact with people there--and, by extension, any social network where I represent my brand. It has been a subtle shift, but an important one. This was on my mind when a question came up at a marketing event where I spoke recently: How do you balance the personal and professional on social networks? I advocated for a blending of the two. At its heart, that's the real opportunity of social media, isn't it? People do business with people--not faceless, soulless ed

Trump Questions a Rule Obliging Financial Advisers to Put Clients’ Interests First

WITH THE STROKE OF A PEN, PRESIDENT Trump has put the future of a controversial financial-planning rule in doubt. On Feb. 3, he signed an executive memo instructing the Department of Labor to review the fiduciary rule, which requires financial advisers to put their clients’ interests ahead of their own when giving retirement investment advice. If the department finds that the rule has hindered the public’s access to retirement-planning information, officials would need to publish a new rule to either rescind or revise it. The review is a victory for opponents of the rule, enacted by the Obama
