Quote of the Show:

“There are Low Results Cycle and High Results Cycle in Business. Where is your Firm today?”



  • There are many law firm owners out there that are ready to take on clients and work but they need guidance on how to run their business.
  • It’s important to have accountability when it comes to running your law firm. You have to take ownership of your business.
  • Most law firm owners are looking for a way to feel organized and feel more in control of the things that are happening around them.
  • You don’t need to be hyper-focused on a certain issue. Hold yourself accountable and bring in others to help you solve the issue.
  • Fun team-building activities shouldn’t replace serious planning for the next quarter. You can still have fun but the serious work needs to be done.
  • Your business is either in a low result cycle or a high result cycle. You can’t be in the middle.
  • There are three parts to success; know what you are aiming for, make a well-thought-out deliberate plan, and you have to honor your plan.
