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. 242 – Move Your Finances Beyond Bookkeeping – with Shawnna Weber

By cody | November 30, 2020

Shawnna Weber is the CEO of Edgewood Business Solutions which provides a number of financial services to the legal community and more. They provide not just bookkeeping and accounting services, but “virtual CFO” services and a range of other financial services. Attorneys often overlook the financial aspects of our business if we’ve outsourced all of our bookkeeping, but there’s much more that can be provided that you may want to take advantage of.

Ep. 241 – How to Draft Fee Agreements That Don’t Leave You at Risk – with Megan Zavieh

By | November 23, 2020

Megan Zavieh recently published an article with Attorney at Work about everything a lawyer needs to know when drafting fee agreements, and as soon as I read it, I knew that I needed to invite Megan back on the show to talk about this. An improperly drafted fee agreement can create a lot of problems — and put you at risk as an attorney — but a lot of people, like myself, are using templated agreements that may not be sufficient. I’ve already started making some changes to the way I do things after talking to her, and I think this is information that all solo and small firms need to know to protect themselves and adequately serve their clients.

Ep. 240 – Law is a Joke: Being a Solo Attorney & Comedian – with Nick Leydorf

By | November 16, 2020

Nick Leydorf recently made the transition from being a criminal defense attorney to being an estate planning lawyer — but he also has a very active and successful career as a stand-up comedian. We talk about legal funnels, the importance of presence as an attorney (and comedian), and the paradigm shift from criminal defense to estate planning.
