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.

Katie Gutierrez Miller is the Founder and CEO of Assistant Match, one of the very first companies to offer virtual assistants. Assistant Match is unique in the VA space because all of their assistants are educated and based in the United States, and for many professionals that is an important consideration.
