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. 149 – PR for Anyone – with Christina Daves

|

Christina Daves is a self-taught publicity expert and the author of PR for Anyone: 100+ Affordable Ways to Easily Create Buzz. She can help just about anyone get more attention from media outlets, which is an area that small firm practitioners are woefully underserved.

 

You might think that the only opportunities for small firm practitioners to get media publicity are that interview on the courthouse steps or getting lucky enough to be invited onto the news as an expert, but there are more opportunities than you might think – and Christina is going to help us uncover them.

Ep. 148 – Creating a Solo Commercial Business Litigation Practice – with Margeaux Thomas

|

Margeaux Thomas is a solo practitioner who specializes in commercial business litigation, and I thought it would be interesting to get the perspective of a solo practitioner who isn’t in one of the more typical practice areas of estate planning, family law, or personal injury.

 

Margeaux offers an interesting perspective on overcoming the trials and tribulations of opening a practice – including the impressive feat of launching a solo practice with twins on the way! – and how she’s been able to keep growing the business.
