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. 112 – Attention is the New Currency – with Neen James

|

Neen James is a leadership and attention expert known for delivering high-energy keynotes presentations that challenge audiences to leverage their focus and pay attention to what matters most at work and in life – and the value of attention is exactly what we’re going to be talking about today.

 

Neen recently wrote a new book, Attention Pays: How to Drive Profitability, Productivity, and Accountability, in which she argues that we live in an attention deficit society and that by having more intentional attention in our actions and relationships with others, we can improve our profitability, productivity, and accountability. Plus, I know that you all will be delighted by her personality, wisdom, and Australian charm.

 

Neen is also generous enough to offer Law Entrepreneur listeners a FREE gift: you can get a sample chapter for Attention Pays and a copy of her 5-Step Attention Challenge by going to thelawentrepreneur.com/neenjames.

Ep. 111 – How to Strategically Reduce Six-Figure Student Loan Debt – with Travis Hornsby

|

Travis Hornsby is the Founder and “Chief Student Loan Consultant” of Student Loan Planner, a company that helps individuals with six figures of student loan debt reduce the amount or make their payments more manageable. They’ve consulted on over $200 million in student debt and found more than $45 million in forecasted student loan savings.

 

Given the fact that so many attorneys are struggling under tremendous amounts of student loan debt, this is a really important and valuable service for those of us choosing to be law entrepreneurs.

Ep. 110 – How Credit Card Processing Solutions Make Life Easier for Law Firms & Their Clients – with Amy Mann

|

Amy Mann is the Marketing & Communications Director for LawPay, what I consider the premiere online credit card processing solution for solo and small law firms. I like to share the services that I personally use – because, well, they work! – and I’ve been using LawPay for many years.

 

We discuss how secure credit card processing can take a lot of the worry out of billing, payment in a world where mobile devices are everywhere, and the surprising number of firms that still don’t accept credit card payments at all.

Five Ridiculously Easy Steps to Increasing Productivity Out the Wazoo

  Nobody, at least those who publish dictionaries, seems to know what a “wazoo” is. But there is at least one reference that concludes it to be “the part of the body you sit on”. That seems to be about right for this piece. Hi, I’m Neil. I’m a productivity junkie. And I mean that in…

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.
