About the EPI Best Practices Mastermind Virtual Roundtable:

The EPI Best Practices Mastermind Virtual Roundtable webinar series is a collaborative peer discussion centered around a different key topic each month.  This session brings together CEPAs across the country to listen and discuss.  It is a great opportunity to get answers to your questions, brainstorm new solutions to common and unique problems, share methods that have worked well for you, and learn ways to get past roadblocks.  This session is held monthly and is another way to meet CEPAs that complement your practice needs and to build your expert network.

This monthly discussion is hosted on the GoToWebinar platform.  It is not a lecture presentation; it is a discussion forum among peers. Experience the power of your CEPA community.


You can help owners create strategies that will reduce risk, build value, and harvest wealth. Your credential is listed on your business card and you are ready for the floodgates to open…now what? As much as we’d like to simply learn new skills and have a line of clients waiting to pay us for our expertise, it is unlikely that demand will build itself. Exit planning is personal, transformational, and unique. And it will take new business development skills and effort to fill your sales funnel and put your practice in a position of abundance versus scarcity. We can help.
