The fact is, not evåeryone is cut out to be a law firm owner, much less a successful one.
The more people I talk to, the more I realize there are some very specific telltale signs of those that will likely not be very good as a law firm owner.
Here are the 5 reasons you won’t succeed as a law firm owner:
- You were born to be a ditch digger.
- You are lazy.
- You think being a good lawyer is enough.
- You refuse to get out of your comfort zone.
- You are an excuse maker.
No, these are not nice. Business isn’t always nice.
If you have some of these problems there is hope. You can change yourself. You just have to want it and then go out and get it.
