Well, we were somewhat blown away when we started Partners Club because we were made to realize that we didn't know the numbers in our firm that we needed to know to have a successful law firm and a successful business. And so, when we went ... came to our first Partners Club event and he was asking the attendees what certain numbers were within their firm, we were embarrassed because we didn't know.
After that first event, we made sure we knew exactly what those numbers were because those numbers are enlightening as to the health of your business. And so, what the Partners Club does for us is cause us to reflect upon numbers that actually drive the firm's bottom line and drives the firm's cases from beginning to end in a successful resolution.
So, we've really have enjoyed Partners Club because we're getting so much out of knowing what numbers we need to manage, number one, and then, what I just described comes from Richard James. The other part of what you get from Partners Club is interacting and networking with the other members who have sometimes a very similar practices, sometimes very different practices, but you can ask them any question you want and everyone here is very giving and generous of any help they can provide to you.

Rich is very confident. And that is contagious. When you talk to Rich or when you listen to Rich it gives you confidence. It makes you feel like you can do what he's teaching you and that helps.
When I started practicing law I got out of law school and thought I knew how to run a business, because I was an attorney. But, that was a hard lesson that I had to learn. Getting out of law school doesn't mean that you know how to run a business and so, I started looking for something like what Rich offers. Rich James just gives you the business background, the business lessons that we didn't get in law school.
There's a lot more to implement than I realized. There's a lot more that I still have to learn. I haven't been able to get everything done that I'd like to get done. But, now, after working with Rich my law firm is more stable. I kind of understand why things are working the way they work. I have a good sense of reaction of how to fix things when things do go wrong.

On Richard, it was someone who is on fire about making stuff happen and that wants to see things happen, want to help the people around him make things happen.
I was worried about whether I was going to be able to make my monthly nut. Worried about how I was going to process these cases, and I was taking a lot of cases that I did not want, but because I needed the revenue from those cases to keep myself afloat and to pay my bills for that month.
I have two to three months of expenses in savings. I have new staff that I'm bringing in and that are ready and trained, and that are able to take what we have from Richard James and other stuff that we developed on our own and swipe and deploy and put in place. Also, I'm able to turn away the cases that I want, not only because they were outside of my practice area, but even cases that are within my practice area, but I can tell it's going to be a difficult client. I have the freedom to turn them away.
