Taking A Leap In White Center

With the recent adventure of practice ownership that Kathleen and I have undertaken, I decided to take a step back and really think about why we made this leap. I mean, who would not want to own a business? All the fun of dealing with banks, construction, hiring employees, just to mention a few.
