I am so thankful that I chose to work with Acquios. As an upcoming new business owner, there have been so many questions and areas of the business that I honestly have had no knowledge about. Kirk and Rick have been incredible. They respond so fast, had the best financial terms of any I had seen, and have already helped me save so much money in the negotiations. The biggest thing that sets them apart for me is how personable and kind they are. So many others I have talked with have been stuffy and intimidating and just made me feel inadequate. I have never felt anything but encouragement and support to my unending questions. It’s a small business that truly seems to care about ME and MY practice and not just a financial venture for them. I feel like they are both my advising team, colleagues and friends. It is by far the best business decision I have made as I know it will continue to positively impact every aspect of my business in the future. I can’t wait to see where this new venture leads!
I’m tremendously grateful for all that you have assisted me through. I know I wouldn’t have gotten this far without you. You’ve always listened to my concerns, and you’ve made such a positive impact for my family and me. Leaving my previous career for a possibly better life with a new practice was a huge, frightening step forward, and I wanted to thank you for having been there every step of the way.
Rick’s philosophy matches up with our own, and his recommendations are time-tested and proven to produce results. He has so much experience with many different kinds of optometry offices and the problems they all face. Since we started working with him, we’ve made tremendous changes to our office and office culture.
We’ve really taken off in the last 4 years, nearly doubling our annual sales to be in the top 5% for a single doctor’s office. Our increase in gross has all been due to our consulting and ideas from Rick. We rely heavily on him for our marketing, business plan, day-to-day office procedures and communications. The best thing we ever did for our practice was to use Rick’s consulting services.
Over the past year I have used Acquious Advisors to help me navigate a practice buyout. Everyone at Acquios was phenomenal. Rick was constantly there to offer me the guidance and support I needed during this time. I am a fairly recent graduate from optometry school, and taking the leap to practice owner was one that I really struggled with. Rick and the rest of the team ran detailed financials on the practice I was buying, and made me feel so much more comfortable moving ahead with the purchase. Not only did they help me complete the buyout, but they also helped with the transition. They walked me through everything from coming up with an employee handbook to having to fire an employee. Rick got to know me and my practice. I look to him not only as a trusted advisor, but also a friend. I would highly recommend Acquios Advisors to anyone looking for assistance in purchasing a practice or needing guidance in running their practice.
Just wanted to tell you thank you. I would be way too nervous to make these big decisions and move forward without your business expertise. I can feel confident growing and moving forward because of you! Thank you. Have a great day!
