Oooo, Shiny Object!

Hey lawyers! How would you describe your business strategy? Do you have one linear approach to your business functioning and growth? Or do you spread your attention amongst methods, trying several different approaches simultaneously? I’ve been thinking about this lately for myself and for my business. I think I need to find a balance between experimenting with several shiny and enticing strategies at once (who doesn’t love shiny and sparkly things?!) and selecting one or two courses of action to focus on at a time. This is a challenging balance for any business owner or entrepreneur. Take a look at the video to learn how you might be able to find the perfect balance for you in order to grow and manage your law firm strategically!

How To Take The Pressure Off

Hey lawyers! I was talking to another attorney the other day, and he said something that stuck with me. He stated that he wanted to work with me and use my freelance attorney services in order to “take the pressure off" of his law firm. I sat with these words - “take the pressure off” - and I thought about ways that I can apply this idea to my life and my work. There are so many resources available to help and support us as lawyers, entrepreneurs, parents, and just plain awesome earthlings! Check out this video to learn what you can do to take some of the pressure off in your work and your life!

Best Ways To Manage Your Email Inbox

Hey lawyers! A friend of mine recently asked me how I manage my email inbox. I thought about it and then shared with him my current system of management which involves creating folders and starring particularly important items. I realized, however, that I want to take my email management and organization to the next level. Better email management can certainly save time and increase efficiency of communication and responsiveness, things that are highly valued by my attorney clients. Check out this video to explore how you can step up your game by taking control of your email inbox.

Best Strategy To Multiply Your Time

Hey lawyers! Are you being strategic with your time management? I asked myself this question the other day. My honest answer is, sometimes. Sometimes I make great decisions in terms of time management. Other times I get swept away in the tide of busyness that is the glamorous life of an attorney… I know you all can relate! The truth is that the most efficient time management takes stategery  (not really a word, I know) and planning. Check out this video to learn how you can better manage and even multiply your time!

Why You Should Be A Creeper

Hey lawyers! I want to tell you that you should all be creepers… but not in the way that you might be thinking! I recently noticed that some of my competitors are adopting some of the language and techniques that I use in my marketing. In other words, the competition has been creeping on me! However, I am not upset. Rather, I think that this is flattering and smart. I would advise you to also do some creeping around the internet. Check out the video to learn why and how!

The New Way To Consider Time Vs. Money

Hey lawyers! As you know, I spend a lot of time talking about how lawyers and other professionals can save time and earn more money. These are topics that I read about, study, and ponder for myself. I had a recent experience which caused me to realize that I need to be even more discerning when thinking about the balance between my own time and money. In summary, I recently ordered some clothes which were never delivered to me. Both the seller and UPS marked my package as delivered, but I never received my order. The total cost of the clothing including shipping was about $50.00. Like most lawyers would do, I immediately jumped into action to remedy the situation. What I ultimately decided to do, however, might shock and surprise you. Check out this video to learn how I handled the situation and why!

How To Work With Your Freelance Attorney- Part 12: How To Delegate Tasks To Your Freelance Attorney

Hey lawyers! Many of my attorney-clients and potential attorney-clients are a bit daunted at the idea of delegating tasks to a freelance attorney. Some lawyers feel that it would take them too long to even give me work to do, and they might as well do the work entirely by themselves. This is a misconception that is simply not true. With an easy system in place, you can spend 5 minutes (if that) delegating a two hour (or more) task to your freelance attorney. Check out the video to learn how it’s done!

Why You Should Be Audacious!

Hey lawyers! “Audacity” can be defined as “the willingness to take surprisingly bold risks.” A potential client recently called me “audacious.” The comment was meant to be derogative, however, I am so excited about this that I wanted to share the experience with all of you. I have “played it safe” for most of my professional life. To hear someone describe me as “surprisingly bold” is pretty exciting! I encourage you to think about what “surprisingly bold” risks you are taking in your law practice. Which of these risks have or have not paid off? Check out the video to further explore this topic!
