Dirk Edwards, CPA/PFS, designed his financial planning practice to make the complex planning work the centerpiece for his clients. He brings in experts in the areas such as estate, risk management, and investments to implement the planning so that his family clients have the best specialists involved. In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Lyle Benson, CPA/PFS, interviews Dirk to share ideas that may resonate with others in the community. Lyle poses the following questions to Dirk:
How did you get your PFP practice off the ground and evolve it to where it is now?
Since you don’t manage investments or give investment advice, how do you connect the dots to provide holistic advice?
What billing method has worked well with your practice model?
How did you identify your partner to bring in as your successor?
What’s your best of advice for someone starting a PFP practice or a tax professional adding PFP services to their offering?
