5 biggest mistakes of solo attorneys

Have you ever dreamed of opening your own firm?

Even if it’s just daydreaming about what it would be like to be your own boss, set your own hours, choose your favorite clients, and create an awesome culture.

When I used to get frustrated in BigLaw, I’d browse commercial house rentals in cool areas of town where I’d envision bringing my dogs to work and a more relaxed way of lawyering 🙂

Am I the only one?

Whether you’ve actually taken the plunge and hung out your own shingle or you’ve just been toying with the idea, today’s Hustle & Flow podcast is just for you!

I’m breaking down the 5 biggest mistakes that I see solos make so you can:

  • Plan ahead and avoid them entirely if you’re thinking about going out on your own
  • Stop making them if you’ve already made the leap but aren’t getting the results you want

Listen to the episode HERE.

If you’re a solo or small firm partner ready to take your practice to the next level in 2019, be sure to apply for the co-ed Solo/Small Firm Mastermind that kicks off in January.

We’ve already admitted a great group of attorneys from states like Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Tennessee, and Montana.

And, we’ve already received applications and started the interview process with attorneys from Florida, Ohio, Massachusetts, California, and even Canada!

To be considered for this Mastermind, all you have to do is apply HERE.

If we think you might be a good fit, we’ll then schedule a telephone interview where we’ll ask you questions and you can do the same.

Based on these interviews, we then invite a select few each week to join the group on a rolling basis. It’s our way of making sure the group is the perfect fit, without too many attorneys from the same practice area or geographical location.

Although applications don’t close until December 21, we suspect the group will be full well before then! So, don’t wait to apply…

P.P.S. Not a solo or small firm partner but still interested in joining a Mastermind in 2019? We’re collecting interest forms from other attorneys, which will help us decide which groups to put together next. Complete the interest form HERE.
