If there’s one thing I constantly harp about—actually, there’s more than one thing, but still—it’s that the key to growing a successful law firm is to think of it as a business. You’re not just an attorney—you’re a business person. The more you understand about running a business, and the more you implement the keys to growing one, the more clients you’ll have and the more money you’ll make.
You should devote some time each day not just to “working your business,” but working on your business. To help, I’ve compiled the following list of five podcasts that will inspire you, encourage you and give you ideas to help your law firm grow.
Hosted by John Lee Dumas, this highly popular daily podcast interviews top entrepreneurs from all industries to learn about their worst moments, finest moments and best ideas. EoFire also offers a number of free courses and free live workshops designed to help business owners thrive.
