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

with Neil Tyra


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.

I Suck at Being Accountable…

There is no productivity system or tool that I can’t ignore and make useless. Honestly. I am the worse. In order to juggle three jobs (attorney, podcaster, business owner) – or maybe it’s four or five if you add social butterfly and family – I have an elaborate productivity system designed to keep me on track, moving forward, and accomplishing great things. And yet, it is a system that I can successfully ignore or change whenever it is needed such that I don’t get nearly as much accomplished as I ought to or want to.


The Good Times (Vegas), The Bad Times (Sick)

Yep, that pretty much describes why I haven’t written anything for awhile. First I was out at the Lawyernomics 2016 conference in Las Vegas sponsored by AVVO.
