Lawyerpreneur

Lawyerpreneur is the podcast where we discuss the alternate paths that allow lawyers to engage their entrepreneurial spirits and distinguish themselves from others. Lawyerpreneur is about encouraging you to explore your entrepreneurialism and creativity both within and outside of your law practice, because being a lawyer doesn't have to mean doing business as usual. Do you envision yourself as a lawyer-entrepreneur? Or just want to be inspired by others who are? Then this is the show for you.... Show More

 When you love your work as an intellectual property rights lawyer and you're an artist at heart and you have small children, that might all culminate into writing a children's book to help children understand what intellectual property is from an early age. Or at least that's what happened for Atlanta-based lawyer, Becki C. Lee. 

After writing a poem about what patents, trademarks, and copyright are so that young entrep...

For as long as I've had the idea for Lawyerpreneur, Marc Randazza was always on the list of people I wanted to talk to. Sometimes when you've been thinking about something for so long and built up an expectation for it, you find that the thing can't actually live up to it. 

But that wasn't the situation with Marc Randazza. Here's a list of topics we discussed:

  • Getting started in 1st Amendment work

    In Episode 24 of Lawyerpreneur, Sam Mollaei talks about the importance of being virtual, scalability, and automation in his law practice.

    For a while after my interview with Sam, I was thinking about our conversation (and there was a lot to think about). I was struck with a line from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, when Butch says, "I got vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals." That's what it was like talk...

    After a career in corporate America, Ruth Kaufman launched into her second act, leaving the security of her day job behind. Kaufman had been acting and doing voice work for two decades, a long enough runaway that she was confident in her ability to succeed in the creative work she was prepared to make her day job. In Episode 23 of Lawyerpreneur, Kaufman and I discuss her second act of acting, writing award-winning novels, and other...

     This is the Lawyerpreneur episode that I should have recorded yesterday. That I should have released yesterday. But I didn't. You want to know why? Because I chickened out. Because this episode is about how personal relationships are central to our businesses and necessary for our long-term success. And it's somewhat personal, so I bailed on it.

    So I've tried to redeem myself today. This episode is about the business of...

    In today's episode, I discuss what to do if your big break never happens and the myth of the overnight success story. But I'll go ahead and spoil the surprise, most "big breaks" are the culmination of years of hard work and determination by people who kept showing up every day and doing their work.

    Portions of this episode are an excerpt from my book Stop Putting Out Fires.

    In Episode 18 of Lawyerpreneur, Jay Harrington and I talk about distinguishing yourself from your competition and his path from corporate bankruptcy lawyer to business consultant. But my favorite part of our conversation was where we talked about having a vision for your work (Episode 13), goal-setting, and selling yourself time (Episode 6) to do your most important work.

    In Episode 13 of Lawyerpreneur, I discuss ideas about making sure your law firm is working for you, having a vision for your law practice, developing S.M.A.R.T. goals to see your vision through to achievement, and implementing metrics to monitor your progress.

    Countless lawyers have said, "I'm going to write a novel some day." I am included among them. There's something innate, particularly among litigators, that compels us toward storytelling. But Robert Dugoni has actually made the transition and written not one, but more than 20 novels.

    Primary care law is a vintage (and all but forsaken) form of law practice under a new name that Melissa Hall has coined to convey her intent to the community she serves. Melissa's "cocktail party" law practice serves a niche community in Seattle. At its essence, she has transported a small town practice to the big city.
