Neil is stuck inside on a mediocre snow day, but that doesn’t mean he can’t work – just one of the pros (cons?) of working out of your home that is discussed in this episode. You’ll learn how to set up a virtual home office, what you will need, what important choices you will have to make, and some of the other pros and cons of working at home.

Sahmra A. Stevenson is a solo practitioner in the D.C. area who primarily does family law and estate planning (she describes herself as “The Happy Family Law Attorney,” and it’s an apt description). Sahmra also has an impressive commitment to being a virtual practitioner, or building an Office Without Walls – she even branded one part of her business as Wills on Wheels, a mobile estate planning service that will go to the client, wherever they are located.

 

It’s a really interesting way to approach a solo law practice, and I think it’s probably the way this industry is going – Sahmra is just way ahead of the curve.

Samantha Kelly is a small business owner from Ireland who started using social media to market her business because – and I’m sure many of us small firm practitioners can relate – she didn’t have a marketing budget. By communicating with, helping, and listening to people online, she has become an influencer and sold her niche business.

 

You’ll learn how Samantha became an influencer, simple strategies for building a community, and how professional services can use Twitter as a platform for engagement, lead generation, and branding.

Emily D. Baker was a Deputy DA in LA County for over 10 years – but, eventually, she wanted greater control over her life. Emily is now the Founder of Ask a Lawyer Now, a service that makes compassionate legal services available to everyone. She has two coaching niches: helping online entrepreneurs start their business legally and preparing individuals for a divorce.

 

We discuss how starting a business helped Emily attain a greater sense of work-life balance, how to overcome the biggest challenges of opening a small business (or law firm), and what it means to be a self-described “legal-ish life coach.”

Chelsey Lambert is a veteran of the Legal Technology space (with experience as both a vendor and an educator) who runs Lex Tech Review, a blog that translates legal technology for real-world attorneys. Chelsey recently published a free 200-page Legal Technology Buyer’s Guide reviewing hundreds of the different products and services that are available to solo and mid-size law firms.

 

We discuss how Chelsey translates complex technology for the layman, why she is writing a series of buyer’s guides, and why all attorneys should learn more about business development.

Jeff Miller has had a tremendous positive impact on my local community, and he has been able to do this because he is a business coach and entrepreneur – he learned early on that if you can impact the life of a business owner, it will have a ripple effect on their family, schools, and community.

 

Jeff shares how, as small business owners, we can leverage our businesses as vehicles for positive change (and, ultimately, grow our businesses in the process).

John Corcoran is a former speech writer for the Clinton administration and a “recovering” solo practitioner, but he’s probably best known for founding two businesses in the entrepreneurial space: Smart Business Revolution & Rise25.

John started his entrepreneurial ventures to diversify his revenue, which is extremely important for solo practitioners (but rarely considered) – now he helps other business owners scale up and diversify by shifting from "one to one" to "one to many" programs and offers.

Brett Burney is an E-Discovery Consultant – that means he goes all around the country “bridging the chasm between the legal and technology frontiers of electronic discovery.” Brett recently released a new course, iPractice on an iPad, which does just what the name implies: teaching you how to conduct your law practice using an iPad as your primary tool. However, you don’t need to use an iPad, or even Apple products, to get some incredibly useful (and practical) tech tips from this episode.

Here’s an example of how an iPad can help in your practice: the Easy-Peasy “Print” to PDF feature.

Let’s say you want to create a PDF of an e-mail you received. To do that...

  • Just make like you’re going to PRINT the message (which is under the “Reply” arrow)...
  • but instead of selecting a Printer, place your thumb & finger on the Print Preview and spread them apart, or zoom-out, or pinch-out.
  • Behold! It turns into a PDF file!

Now you can use the “Share menu” in the upper right corner to upload this PDF file to Dropbox, or open it in another app like PDF Expert so you can highlight text.

Or maybe you want to convert a web page into a PDF. Use the “Share menu” to “Print” it, zoom-out on the Print Preview, and you have a PDF!! (Going into the Reader Mode in Safari gives you a cleaner PDF without all the ads and junk.)

Now you could attach this to an e-mail message to send to a colleague or client, or upload it to OneDrive.

You can also do this from the Notes app, or virtually any app where you have the ability to “Print.” It’s even a good way to quickly export a note from Evernote to PDF. Brett has long used apps like PDF PROvider and PDF Converter to convert files and text to PDF, and he still uses those apps from time to time for their additional features, but this easy, BUILT-IN “Print to PDF” option on iOS is so incredibly handy!

Today we’re going to learn about a novel (but common-sense) business strategy that Ross Albers implemented to grow his solo practice into a successful small firm: the early use of a business coach. Many lawyers don’t consider hiring a coach until late in their careers, but Ross shares how it helped him improve in every facet of business ownership (and why he wishes he’d hired someone even earlier).

We also look towards the future, and consider the role video may play in attorney-client communication.
