Don’t settle this year; thrive.
As Solo and Small Firm business owners, managers, and stakeholders, we are the law firm. Have you asked yourself what you are going to do this year to make achieve your goals? Have you taken the time (I know it’s so hard) to sit down and actually figure out what your specific goals are? If not, I highly encourage you to do so. We all want to be successful (whatever that means to you), we all want to make enough to at least pay the bills every month, maybe we want to "do better" than last year or "network more" or "get on a board" or "insert vague aspiration here." Let’s get specific. Let’s make a vision board or a specific goal list if crafting makes your skin crawl.
