    Episode 251: Unlocking Entrepreneurial Freedom: Redefining Growth for Law Firms

    Episode 251: Unlocking Entrepreneurial Freedom: Redefining Growth for Law Firms

    In this episode, Molly takes a deep dive into the concept of growth in a law firm setting beyond the traditional financial perspective. She starts the conversation on growth, redefining what growth means on a personal, departmental, and practice area level. She stresses the importance of aligning growth with not just financial gains but also with internal processes and the empowerment of team members.
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    Growth should be multifaceted, encompassing personal development, process optimization, and team empowerment, not just financial success. Consistently measure and track growth in various areas of your business, acknowledging both improvements and setbacks as part of the growth process.
    Delegating tasks and embracing role specialization can significantly increase efficiency and allow attorneys to focus on higher-value activities.
    Having metrics, reporting, and analytics in place, even if they initially reveal areas of concern, is part of growing and allows for more informed business decisions.
    Encouraging a team-oriented approach to growth fosters an environment where employees feel invested and are motivated to ask powerful, business-driving questions.
    Quote for the Show: "Get clear and measure every single week... We're looking at the progress, not measuring from a place of perfection." - Molly McGrath

    Episode 250: Solve Your Law Firm Revenue Problems in 1.5 Days

    In this episode, Molly addresses the challenges faced by estate planning and elder law attorneys. She emphasizes the importance of having a systematic follow-up process, closing the room effectively, and implementing an annual maintenance program. 
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    A "non-attorney salesperson" has a critical role to alleviate the attorney's workload and enable growth. Implementation of an annual maintenance program is proposed as a solution to create consistent revenue and allow for firm investments.

    Quote for the Show: "Give yourself the gift of shutting down your law firm, bringing your team and solving this once and for all in a day and a half." - Molly McGrath

    Episode 246: How to Guarantee Qualified Consults and Close More Deals

    Episode 246: How to Guarantee Qualified Consults and Close More Deals

    In this episode, Molly dives deep into the frustrations that professionals in the legal field experience when dealing with unqualified consultations and the inefficiencies that arise from them. She advocates for the strategic use of educational workshops and webinars to pre-qualify clients, ensuring that by the time a consultation occurs, the potential client is a "hell yes" and already resonates with the firm's approach. 
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    Pre-qualifying consultations can save time and ensure legal professionals meet with only ideal clients. Educational workshops and webinars can effectively prepare and filter potential clients before in-person consultations. The 'workshop model' is adaptable across various legal disciplines and has been proven to increase engagement and sales conversions. The Estate Planning and Elder Law Marketing Summit in Denver promises to provide estate planning and elder law attorneys with a comprehensive system for managing initial consultations and workshops. Quote for the Show: "By the time you meet with somebody, they are already a hell YES!" - Molly McGrath

Invaluable insights for your team

One of my favorite podcasts to look forward every week and as a podcast junkie that says a lot! I get more a-ha moments from this podcast than almost anything I listen to and send these to my staff all the time. A must listen to the entrepreneurs AND intrapreneuers out there.

Total Scammer

Honestly, one of the worst people I’ve ever met. In my opinion, Molly is dishonest, doesn’t practice what she preaches, and ignorant about what she purports to teach.

She is honestly the very worst vendor I’ve ever hired.

Frankly, it’s so bad that I would question the judgment of anyone who comes as a guest on this podcast.

She took my money didn’t complete the scope of work and threatened to reveal personal health related information if I did anything about it.

If you value yourself, stay away from Molly.
