But before you decide to sit back and enjoy the ride, you've got to ask yourself some tough questions — and learn how a little strategic planning can be your answer to that feeling of lack of control.

If more than finances is on your mind, read how Dr. Melody Heath navigates practice ownership, family, marriage, and pets in "Finding my middle ground."
