This week on the show we have Melissa Shanahan, founder of Velocity Work, a law firm consulting and coaching company.
In this episode we’ll discuss how Melissa started in the consulting industry, which KPI’s are important and how to track them, how she keeps her law firm clients accountable on goals, and how she keeps level-headed when working with such a diverse client pool.
From Ashley: Don’t let the muggles get you down
Me: Read the book 5AM Club, its amazing. My wife doesn’t like getting up that early so she’s starting a 5-minutes early club so she never feels like she’s running late by arriving 5 minutes early to everything.
If you’re like me you’ve got post-it notes everywhere. Post-it has a new app that lets you write post-it notes on your phone that follow you around at all times. It’s a convenient and fun way to keep track of all the little notes we leave for ourselves.
My tip of the week is to reduce your inputs. Be intentional about the media you let influence you.
I listen to every podcast, Saturday morning shows, HotSeats, etc. The information and ideas I learn from
each one. I may only receive a nugget of information, or feel encouraged that I am not the only one
going through something.

The podcast and fb group has been life altering. I always felt like I would never know enough to hang my
own shingle and employ people, but here I am, killing it. Lots of actionable steps for working on mindset,
business (some I had to go outside of law to learn) and really gathering attorneys who are willing to
share and lift up others, as opposed to tearing other attorneys down. I first heard about the podcast on
Ernie the Attorneys podcast and how they were doing amazing stuff. And they continue to do so. Now if
we could bring back maxlawcon I’d be over the moon.
