How to Own a Law Practice and Not Have it Own You
Mark Metzger
Transform your practice by transforming your mindset. Almost every law practice fits into one of three mindsets: The Great Lawyer Mindset, The Practice Grown Mindset and the Market Leader Mindset. These mindsets dictate what you can and can’t accomplish in your law firm. Making the smart commitment to a new mindset can allow you to build and grow your practice without grinding yourself into dust. Learn about the three major law firm mindsets and why changing yours can create new opportunities to advance your practice and reputation as a market leader – all while gaining the specific strategies that will propel you to a more successful and satisfying work/life balance.
