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. 124 – Learn How to Leverage iPhones & iPads in Your Firm at MacTrack Legal 2018 – with Victor Medina

|

Victor Medina, the host of Make it Last Radio and a frequent guest on the show, is back to tell us all about MacTrack Legal 2018, which will focus on mobile computing and the iOS platform. So even if you don’t use a Mac laptop, you might still find it useful to learn how the iPhone and iPad can be integrated more effectively in your firm.

 

You’ll hear me talking about MacTrack Legal pretty often and there’s a very simple explanation for that – it’s my single favorite conference out there! I hope to see you in Orlando in September, and if you need another reason, here’s two: I’ll buy you a drink and Victor is generous enough to offer The Law Entrepreneur listeners a discount.

Ep. 123 – Creating a Virtual Marketplace for Contract Attorneys: Lawclerk.legal – with Greg Garman

|

Greg Garman is the Founder & CEO of Lawclerk.legal, a virtual marketplace where law firms can go to hire freelance contract attorneys. And for those of us looking to create a virtual office and outsource as much work we we possibly can, it’s one of the last pieces of the puzzle.

 

 

We discuss how exactly Lawclerk works, why an attorney might want to use it, and how it can help small, remote law firms. Plus, you can get a $300 rebate on your first completed project by using the code TLE300!

 

And if you weren’t aware, MacTrack Legal is coming up next month, Sept. 27 – 29, 2018 in New Orleans. This is one of my favorite conferences and I’ve attended ever year for the last 10 years, and I hope to see you there!

Ep. 122 – Marketing for Transactional Law Attorneys: Building Authority, Value, & Relationships – with Jessi Patton & Megan Wakefield

|

Jessi Patton and Megan Wakefield are the founders and principles of Juris Diction, a full-service business coaching and marketing company “created for attorneys, by attorneys.” They have a lot of insight into how to grow a law firm and what goes into marketing it, particularly for estate planning and other transactional attorneys – and of course, most of us want to grow in some form or another.

 

Juris Diction’s marketing strategy focuses on consistently creating high-quality content that establishes a firm’s expertise, providing unique and valuable content to a firm’s ideal clients, and building real relationships with potential clients long before a client agreement is signed.

 

It’s a refreshing approach and, if you go to the Juris Diction blog, you can see that they are walking the walk and providing a lot of genuine value to attorneys who want to grow their business, for free.

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.
