Mindset Secrets: Stop Playing By the "Rules" All of us live by unwritten "rules" we tell ourselves. "I don't have enough experience to enter this market." "I look too young to be taken seriously." "Credit cards are dangerous and should never be used." "If my peers don't think highly of me then I must not be that good." "If I charge a lot for my services and make a lot of money I am a bad person." These "rules" exist only in your head. The sooner you release yourself of these rules and...

091: Networking Secrets – Two Questions I Ask Everyone

2/5/2018
More
I love networking. It makes me a lot of money. But I used to suck at it. I used to hate it. And part of the reason for that was that I didn't know how to approach it correctly. I was looking for the wrong things. I was talking to the wrong people. I was having meeting after meeting with seemingly no results. And then I realized, I was asking the wrong questions. Networking is a lot more about finding people that are congruent with you and your goals and your plans than it is about finding...

Cheap Law Firm Does Not Equal Efficient Law Firm I saw someone in the Facebook Group talking proudly about being a true solo, a true one man law firm, and looking for help and guidance on how to make that set up even more efficient.

Law Firm Advertising Myths The other day I had lunch with a financial planner buddy of mine. We were talking about what was working and what wasn't in our businesses. He doesn't like advertising because it's hard (not just the regular hard - they have a ton of regulation to deal with). I love advertising because it's amazing. And you probably hate it because you buy into the myths of law firm advertising. Why myths? Here are the three law firm advertising myths I talk about in the podcast:...

Stop Looking Backward and Start Getting to Work There is an ancient Chinese proverb that goes something like this: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today. It always happens to me around this time of year. I start looking back at the year to evaluate what went right and what went wrong. And often I find myself dwelling on what COULD have been. "If only I'd done 'x' things would have been crazy." "I can't believe I didn't fully integrate 'y' like I...

I told him I disagreed and then launched into the myriad of reasons why I was right. I wanted to share those ideas with you here today. Here are several reasons...
