In this episode, find out why defining your niche may be the key to your success.
Today’s episode features Craig Goldslager, financial advisor and founder of Utterly Financial in West Palm Beach Florida.
Craig created Utterly Financial to help Speech Language Pathologists and Private Practice Owners plan for an exceptional retirement. He is a proud graduate of the University of Miami Herbert Business School. In addition, he received a Master of Business Administration from Nova Southeastern University. He also holds the Certified Exit Planner™ designation. Indeed, the CExP is a demonstration of Craig’s commitment to helping private practice owners strategize the ideal departure from their businesses on their terms.
However, what’s unique about Craig is how he decided to niche down and target a very specific client base–even if it meant saying no to new business. Yet by doing so, he’s able to market his business more effectively. Not to mention, attract clients that he truly enjoys working with.
In this episode, Craig and I discuss the role he plays as an exit planner and how this expertise helps his clients better plan for retirement. Moreover, Craig shares why he chose to focus his practice on speech language pathologists. He also explains why working with such a specific client base allows him to continually improve the services he provides.
Meanwhile, we talk about the steps involved in the exit planning process. For example, how to find out what your business is worth, what you can do to make your business more valuable, and the potential tax implications of exiting your business. Additionally, Craig shares why estate planning is essential for small business owners.
