One of the things I love about Reed Tinsley's blog about the business and financial aspects of practice management is the minutia. He manages to encapsulate some of the nitty, gritty details of practice management, and occasionally stumbles into the territory of personal finance. If you want to retire by stepping down your job duties and participation, you should really read this post. It contains the actual language from one medical practice's partnership agreement that facilitate a stepped-down retirement for practice partners. Detailed, thought-provoking, and useful.
