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. 180 – Creating a Business That Serves You with “The Small Firm Roadmap” – with Stephanie Everett

|

Stephanie Everett is VP of Community Success over at Lawyerist, responsible for leading the Lawyerist community and Lawyerist Lab, and the co-author of Lawyerist’s new book, The Small Firm Roadmap. Don’t let the name of the book fool you, though — it is anything but small. This is a very serious literary work about how to achieve growth and success as a small firm practitioner, and I think it has the potential to become the go-to book for solo attorneys and small firms who want to grow.

 

One of the things I like most about the book is that it tackles the topic from the context of today; it recognizes the major shifts currently happening in society and in the practice of law, offering some guidance in dealing with those changes and reframing them as opportunities.

 

If you want to win a FREE copy of The Small Firm Roadmap, you can record a one- to two-minute video sharing a little bit about yourself and why you think you’d benefit from reading the book and send it to me at neil@thelawentrepreneur.com. We’ll pick one winner and announce them on the show in the future.

|

Gary Zalarick is the Principal behind The Legal Assistant, a practice management software for U.S. law firms, and a Partner at Sammarro & Zalarick.

Ep. 177 – 10 Rules for Surviving as a Solo or Small Firm Practice – with Dustin Cole

|

Whether it’s as a coach and mentor or the founder and creator of the Attorney Master Class, Dustin Cole is dedicated to helping attorneys build more profitable and successful legal businesses.

 

I actually stumbled onto Dustin’s work after reading an article he wrote for Attorney at Work called “10 Rules for Surviving as a Solo or Small Firm Practice.” That piqued my interest (for obvious reasons) and I liked the article a lot, so I asked him to come on the show and expand on those 10 points for all of you.
