Robert Fragasso, the founder of Fragasso Partners, publishes new book for professionals seeking independence
Robert Fragasso, the founder of Fragasso Partners, has published the Second Edition of his book Starting Your Own Practice: The Independence Guide For Investment Advisors, Attorneys, CPAs, and Other Professional Service Providers. This book shares his expert insight and advice on starting your own practice with step-by-step instructions and actionable items that will help professional service providers become independent.

Fragasso’s book is now available to anyone considering entrepreneurship and becoming financially independent. Readers will receive over 200 pages of straightforward information, practical considerations, and expert guidance on starting their own practice. This Second Edition features all the content from the first book published in 2005 but with more depth on business maturity and succession as well as providing more alternative ideas such as licensing of services and infrastructure.

The book acts as a blueprint for starting a professional service business, taking readers from thoughts of independence to growth and an eventual exit strategy. The first chapter helps readers determine if going independent is right for them by sharing the benefits, risks, and “The Entrepreneur’s Test.”  Readers will then start at the very beginning, choosing their niche, value proposition, and creating an organizational model. They are then guided through all the licensing requirements, staffing, and compensation tools available. Fragasso covers every detail, even providing guidance on leaving their current employer and setting up a new office. He helps readers gain new clients and customers to strategically grow their business by providing proven marketing techniques. Lastly, readers will learn how to manage their business and future retirement.

The book, Starting Your Own Practice, is written primarily for professional service providers wishing to move to independence, including investment advisors and brokers, insurance agents, real estate professionals, architects, attorneys, accountants, appraisers, and consultants.  However, all the principles within the book are transferable to anyone wishing to employ skills and talents in his or her own business.

Robert Fragasso began as a sole practitioner in 1972 and formed Fragasso Group in 1979. He has first-hand experience starting and growing a business and now employs nearly 50 professionals with an impressive $1.5 billion under management and advisement. Fragasso, along with his firm, has been recognized by Barron’s as a top independent advisor and Forbes as a top wealth advisor. The book is available in Kindle or Hardcopy format and is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and Bam! Books a Million.
