I Want to Retire, so What's Next?

Your accounting practice has value, and the way to end it is not by telling your clients to go find someone else. Before you dust off your fishing gear or head for the warmth and sunshine, read about taking those important next steps and by all means offer your insights and advice in today's discussion.
