Elements Of An Effective Law Business Plan

Elements of a Successful Business Plan

Your law business is your vehicle for realizing your dreams in life. Done properly you will create a business that provides you with the money you need to live the life you desire, and the time to enjoy it with loved ones – meaning you’re not working 50-70 hour weeks, and when you’re home, you are pleasant to be around. To write an effective business plan, like any effective communication, you need to know your audience. Who is this plan for? There’s a big difference between a business plan for seeking bank funding, and a business plan to keep yourself … Continue reading »

Don’t Waste Your Money On Legal Marketing

Wasting Money On Legal Marketing

This is an important public service announcement if you are considering hiring a legal marketing company, agency or service to market your law firm. Please take it seriously. Far too many lawyers think legal marketing will be the answer to their prayers — I get it, I once thought that, too — but what I discovered (and you will, too, if you don’t heed this warning) is that legal marketing is just a teeny piece of the law business puzzle. You’d think it was the whole enchilada if you pay attention to what every online marketer in the legal space … Continue reading »

How Long Before I Will See ROI From My New Assistant?

How Long Before I Will See ROI From My New Assistant?

At first, 90 days may feel like a lifetime. However, when you consider the milestones you’ll hit in that time, and the full support you’ll receive after ramping up, 90 days really isn’t that long at all.

What’s Really Holding You Back?

Last weekend, I attended a fantastic conference last week in San Francisco called The Traffic & Conversion Summit, put on by two marketing entrepreneurs and their attorney partner. Alexis and I met several lawyers taking massive action in their businesses and enjoying the benefits of clear, decisive action amidst everyone else’s paralysis. It’s funny – there are people who are always blaming the economy, and there are people who are always making money, no matter what the economy is doing. I learned years ago during my brief stint as a real estate investor that markets are cycles. When you know … Continue reading »
