You had a big vision when you started your firm…
You’d get to truly help people, and you’d have greater freedom with your time and more income than you would working your way up the ladder somewhere else.
If only it were that easy, right?
Because if you’re like most law firm owners I talk to, the reality is that you’re spending far too many hours in the office, and the really important parts of your life are left on the back burner — like time with your family and friends.
It would be one thing if the profit you’re bringing in was consistent and afforded you the lifestyle you truly wanted… but the truth is it’s pretty unpredictable.
One really good month might be followed by a few lean ones — it’s like you’re stuck in this cycle of hustling to get new clients, then being so busy serving them that you can’t continue to grow, only to have to jump on selling hard again when their cases are done.
That’s an awful lot of work for very little payoff. And since part of what drives you is wanting to prove you can be successful to those you care about, at the end of the day, it feels like you’re failing.
The thing is, it’s not YOU that’s failing.
It's the lack of a strong plan that is.
