1. Client Selectivity
The 80-20 Rule says your top 20% will pay you 80% of your revenues. Stop working for the 80% and only let the 20% in.
2. Hiring Right
A firm with no staff is a dead end, and cheap help is dangerous. Get great help so you can focus on growing your practice.
3. File/Matter Control
Create systems that allow you to work efficiently and systematically. If you don’t know exactly what needs to be done next in every file, you’re in danger.
4. Time Management
The average sole practitioner spends more than 50% of their time on non-billable,
administrative and personal activities while work piles up and cash flow stops.
5. Make a Plan
If you don’t know where you and your practice are going, you’ll get there.
6. Make Marketing JOB 1
Nothing happens until a client asks for help, and nothing is more important than making sure enough of them do. Without clients, your skills don’t matter.
