From Christina Scalera, solo practitioner + founder of Ruckus:
Every month, as I'm speaking at yet another conference full of bloggers, small business owners and wedding professionals, I'm the gal with the line of attendees waiting to get a chance to talk to me after my presentation. I'm definitely not the coolest person and the topic (legal) is super boring. So what's with the line of anxious attendees waiting their turn?
Without fail, they're not interested in the content. My presentation was fine, nothing spectacular, and they're not there to congratulate me.
Instead, I find them "outing" themselves as attorneys. Sometimes they're stay-at-home moms looking to get back to work, other times they're in school and thinking about becoming an attorney, but most often, they're stuck in big firms and looking for a way OUT-- a way to spend more time traveling, or with their family, or just to do something that isn't so mind-numbingly BORING and stressful.
A little bit of my heart breaks for them, because I can distinctly remember quitting my in-house legal job. For a normal 26 year old, it would have been a dream job on paper. But inside, I was falling apart. Stressed, overworked and dealing with unpredictable fainting spells brought on by the situation, I had to leave. The only problem was that I had debt and absolutely ZERO plan as to what I was going to do next.
Through a series of failures and missteps over the next year, I ended up accidentally starting a law firm when one of my friends hired me to fix her photography contract. She referred me to plenty of others and business has been booming ever since. Unfortunately, even if you stumble upon this kind of opportunity (which in hindsight is actually incredibly easy to reverse-engineer), it doesn't mean you'll have a successful firm.
I very quickly was thrown into the world of law practice management, and even though I have started several successful companies since this time period, there's nothing like starting a law firm. I was featured on Entrepreneur, and yet I still had to learn how to manage clients, attract new ones and keep good books (don't even get me started on IOLTA accounts!)
One question kept running through my mind since starting my firm-- "if it was this difficult for an experienced and accidentally successful entrepreneur to start a law firm, how hard is it for someone who has no clue and no clients?"
Out of this, the Jumpstart Your Practice Summit was born. In this Summit, you will learn how to:
