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. 99 – From the Kitchen Table to a Thriving Firm – with Tiffany O’Connell

|

I met today’s guest, Tiffany O’Connell, in a marketing group a few years ago, and since then her small firm in Massachusetts has grown and thrived. We discuss Tiff’s transition from insurance defense to estate planning and elder law (one area of law she never expected to be in),, how she leverages guest bloggers to create more valuable online content, and other strategies she’s used to grow the firm in just a few short years.

You’ll learn how to set up a virtual home office, what you will need, what important choices you will have to make, and some of the other pros and cons of working at home.

Ep. 97 – Building Offices Without Walls – with Sahmra A. Stevenson

|

Sahmra A. Stevenson is a solo practitioner in the D.C. area who primarily does family law and estate planning (she describes herself as “The Happy Family Law Attorney,” and it’s an apt description). Sahmra also has an impressive commitment to being a virtual practitioner, or building an Office Without Walls – she even branded one part of her business as Wills on Wheels, a mobile estate planning service that will go to the client, wherever they are located.

 

It’s a really interesting way to approach a solo law practice, and I think it’s probably the way this industry is going – Sahmra is just way ahead of the curve.

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.

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.
