016: Not Everyone Is Going To Be A Successful Law Firm Owner

The theme of today’s episode is pretty simple: maybe you don’t have what it takes to be a successful law firm owner. This episode was sparked by a recent episode of Suits that I watched. Mike was managing a legal clinic and there was a lawyer in the group that really wanted to be a litigator. He wanted to be a trial attorney. He went to court and got demolished. He simply couldn’t think on his feet. Then he tried it again. Demolished again.

012: Starting a Law Firm Books – My Favorite 5

I was having a conversation the other day with a member of my Inner Circle group (don’t worry, it’s not open right now) and he was telling me about how great things were going for him and his law firm. From there he started asking about the books I was currently reading. I thought about it for a minute and told him I actually wasn’t reading much new stuff right now, for a couple of reasons. Reason number one was that I had plenty of ideas that I knew would work, I just needed to execute on them. Reason number two was that a lot of my reading was practice based, as it’s something I’m actually interested in learning and implementing and I have some new, fun ways to incorporate what I’m doing into my law firm. But that got me thinking about the starting a law firm books I’d recommend if I only had 5 I could go back […]
