Some people are just don’t made to run a law firm or solo practice.
1. You don’t like hustling for clients.
Finding the people that need our services in a way that is energetic, purposeful and deliberate in a way that attracts people to you and makes them want to hire you.
When you run a solo practice, hustling is fundamental. It’s the only way you will get clients and grow, therefore, it’ll be the only way to keep your firm running.
2. You don’t want to monitor your numbers. KPI’s.
Key Performance Indicators. The number of potential clients. Cash in – Cash out. Numbers, statistics. Information that will show you how the firm is and how it will or can be.
KPI’s will let you modify, improve, reduce, fasten, the way you work and systems and that way maximize your firm.
You’d rather be comfortable with a monthly paycheck as opposed to the risk and reward of running your own firm.
There is definitely some internal strength that you are going to need in order to be able to soldier through when things get tough and there are ups and downs to practice.
Sometimes you feel the risk is greater than the opportunity.
