Hey lawyers! If you are like me, you are a mega-go-getting-attorney! You have to be driven to, not just practice law, but also run your own business at the same time. There are so many hats that we have to wear on a daily basis, juggling skills and tasks like it’s another day at the circus. If you’re like me, you frequently find yourself thinking, “oh, I’ll just do this easy task real quick.” I have been a victim to this thought many times, and before I know it, my entire day has gone by “real quick.” Check out the following video to learn how you can accomplish more by doing less!
Hi lawyers! As you know, I’m fairly active on social media as a member of many groups of lawyers. I recently came across a lawyer who was lamenting a colleague of hers who was throwing shade her way. The colleague was majorly hating on this lawyer and her law practice. In my opinion, that’s not cool of the colleague. It’s not easy being an awesome lawyer and business owner (like you are). We would be better off supporting one another. However, I started to think. Having “haters” is actually pretty cool. Anyone who has “made it” in any type of industry has mad haters. (I’m trying to find some for myself!) Check out this video to learn how to benefit from having haters!

Hey lawyers! I recently completed a LinkedIn training about “pitching yourself.” It had some good insights that apply to us as lawyers running our own businesses. The training made me think. Essentially, we need to be our own hype-men and hype-women. You know how Jay-Z titles himself as “the best rapper alive?” If you listen, he voices this and labels himself throughout many of his tracks. Have you ever questioned him? I sure haven’t! I think he’s on to something and there are some strategies that we can learn from and apply as lawyers and business owners. Check out the following video to learn why you should be “the best lawyer alive!”

Hey lawyers! What time do you usually get to bed? As a solo practitioner or small firm attorney, are you staying up late most nights working and running your law practice? I have a colleague who was staying up regularly until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, answering emails and completing other tasks for his law firm. He made one small change in the operation of his law firm, and now he is able to go to bed earlier and even watch some Netflix at night. Check out this video to learn what my colleague did and how you can get more sleep!
Hey lawyers! I know we, as kick-butt-awesome-entrepreneurs/lawyers, are always budgeting and trying to make wise financial decisions for our law practices. When I outsource tasks to different contractors, I always run the numbers- considering my expenses, my time, the rate of the contractor, etc. The cost of working with a freelance attorney can be easily calculated and considered along with the rest of your law firm’s numbers. In fact, the true cost of working with a freelance attorney might surprise you. Check out this video to learn exactly how much it will cost you to work with your very own freelance attorney!
Hey lawyers! Are you interested in having more fun during the summertime? As solo practitioners and small firm attorneys, it seems like we are always working.

In fact, “with a little help from our friends” (la la la- imagine me singing here) you can do more than just “get by” during the summer. Check out the following video to learn how you can easily get more enjoyment out of your summer!

In my quest to educate the legal profession regarding how freelance attorneys can be used to help solo practitioners and small firm attorneys, I decided to do a video explaining exactly what tasks a freelance attorney can take off of your plate.

Hi lawyers! When I explain to my friends and family exactly what I do professionally- run my own firm as a freelance attorney- sometimes they respond with, “Oh you’re like a paralegal!” When I hear this response, it makes me want to fly into an immediate fit of rage (just kidding!) Freelance attorneys are not as well-known as paralegals. Freelance attorneys, however, fill a very different and a very specific role in the functioning of your solo or small law practice. To learn when you should use a freelance attorney instead of a paralegal, check out this video!
