What They Didn't Teach Us About Running a Business in Law School

with Neil Tyra

Tyra_LawEntre_Final_Bug-half-2

Do you ever feel like what you learned in law school didn't prepare you for the world of running a law practice? Law school didn't teach us how to start our practices the right way so we could scale them into a thriving business. We didn't learn how to make sure that our businesses would meet our financial goals and provide the type of lifestyle we deserve. After ten years, I was fed up with struggling in my practice and decided to begin a journey to scaling a

successful practice that would actually allow me to finally live the life I've always dreamed of. I invite you to listen in on the conversations I'm having with some of the most successful solo and small firm practitioners  along with leading business entrepreneurs and share how I am implementing what I am learning. All with the goal of helping you take control of your practice, and your life. This is The Law Entrepreneur.

Ep. 183 – Law Firm Autopilot: Bootstrapping & Automating Solo Law Firms – with Ernie Svenson

|

A couple weeks ago, we re-aired an episode with David Burkus, author of Friend of a Friend, and I received positive response from that episode that I wanted to share another one of my favorites from back in the archives. (But I promise this isn’t going to be a regular thing now.)

 

Originally aired in April 2017, this episode features Ernie “the Attorney” Svenson, an expert in helping solo lawyers and small firms make their practices more profitable and vastly easier to manage. Since this episode released, Ernie has also launched Law Firm Autopilot, which is both a course that helps attorneys automate their firm and a supportive community full of lawyers who want to learn new things.
