In between, however, I also fell flat on my face a time or two.
For example, I joined a new law firm and was working on estates up to $500 million... but the firm wasn’t a good fit, and it took a miserable toll on my overall health (an all-too-common problem in the legal community.)
To escape that firm, I had what I call an “entrepreneurial seizure” and started my own firm (the kind of firm everyone tells you you should have) with the brick and mortar offices and outdated models for work/life balance and leadership… and it failed miserably.
And all the while I found myself wondering “Why don’t they teach us this stuff in law school?!”
There is truly so much more to the business of law than just practicing law, or even marketing.
You need scalable systems. A powerful team. A clear vision. financial strategies. And a millionaire mindset while living proven success principles.
Most importantly, however, you need to give yourself space to lead and be the CEO of your practice, so you can design a business that truly supports the life you and everyone in your firm deserve.
It wasn’t until I got back in the saddle and created the law firm my way (that included all of the above) that everything started to click.
After that, instead of the burnout and frustration I was used to, I began to take more time away from the office, and create more space for fun and pleasure.
The craziest part was? While I was doing all that… I was making more money than I ever had.
I knew this was too powerful of a truth to keep to myself -- and I wanted to create the biggest impact possible with it.
That’s when I began teaching attorneys the principles that create explosively profitable businesses and fulfilling, healthy lives outside of the office, too.
I transitioned into consulting, and eventually became a Master Law Firm Business Strategist with specialties in Success Training and Mindset Mentoring for Entrepreneurial Lawyers, supporting lawyers just like you through the end-to-end process of crossing the million-dollar mark (or multi-million dollar mark), becoming CEO of their law firms, and taking their life, health, and sanity back.
It’s my calling, and what I absolutely love to do. And if you’re ready, I’d love to begin this journey with you.
