    174: The Truth About Stress & Strategy

    174: The Truth About Stress & Strategy

    Have you ever wondered what your employees really think? It’s important to hear what others that work with you think and what people are saying and thinking about employers in this day and age. Join the host of the show and the Founder of Hiring And Empowering Solutions, Molly McGrath, as she explains how to handle stress and have a good strategy with your employees. 
     
    Takeaways: 
    Everybody says they are busy and stressed, but that is not the case. If you are busy and stressed, you need to look at why you are stressed and see how you can ease your burdens. Turnover is a part of any business. You don’t want a high turnover rate but it doesn’t hurt to be honest with someone during the onboarding process about turnover.  The ultimate goal is that you don’t want to burn out. It’s easier to burn yourself out but you don’t want to be going home at night complaining about work and saying how stressed you are. If that’s the case, you need to leave that job. There is a big difference between stress and strategy. Stress is like an alert system to your body, while if you are thinking of ways to make a process better at work that is more strategic.  When you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, that means that is time for a strategy to step in. You can ask your co-workers to help you with your workload to take some stress off of your plate.  “Future Pulling” is when you can’t stop thinking of work outside of work, which doesn’t allow you to take time to relax and mentally recover.  Don’t be afraid to talk to somebody because they are busy. A good manager can take the time to talk to others at the office.   
    Quote of the Show:
    "Eradicate the words Busy & Stressed from your language and watch your entire business transform. Overnight. Guaranteed."

    173: Traditional Law Firms are about to get their Asses Kicked

    173: Traditional Law Firms are about to get their Asses Kicked

    Today’s guest is passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow and protect their businesses. Andrew Legrand is the Business Attorney at Spera Law Group LLC. Andrew was inspired to help others from a young age and he knew that he wanted to leverage current technology and try to be paperless. Andrew joins the host Molly McGrath to talk about the core values of his company and how to retain employees.
     
    Takeaways: 
    Being a lawyer can be stressful and often time people tend to bring work home with them, so it’s important to live your best life. Take time off if you need it and focus on taking care of yourself mentally.  Communication is key when working at any company. It’s better to over-communicate and make sure that everything is crystal clear rather than leave something unsaid or open to interpretation. Pay attention to the small details. When creating documents for clients, make sure that all the details are correct and that you are using the proper pronouns in the document as well. Employees like to have the freedom and flexibility that smaller businesses have to offer, and it’s important to make sure that their needs are being met. They no longer are looking at just the pay but also the company culture. If you are dealing with high turnover or having retention issues, that means that it is a management problem. That requires a deeper level of self-reflection to figure out what the issue is. A business coach can be helpful to see where the flaws might be in your business and help to figure out how to solve the problems. It’s a good idea to reward and recognize people in your company who are showing examples of actually embracing the core values.

    172: Cryptocurrency Law Issues

    172: Cryptocurrency Law Issues

    In this week’s episode, we take a look at a topic that is very popular right now, cryptocurrency and blockchain! Anthony Garcia is the Cryptocurrency Legal Consultant at The Anthony A Garcia Law Firm. Anthony joins the host Molly McGrath to talk about some of the biggest issues and questions about cryptocurrency. 
     
    Takeaways:
    Crypto is very similar to a bearer asset, where whoever is holding it currently is considered to be the owner.   An issue with Cryptocurrency is that since it is pretty anonymous, anyone who has access to the private keys for it can take it from you and claim it as their own. Since the network for blockchain is decentralized, it creates an issue of trusting where in the blockchain you might be getting the crypto from, which makes devalues the trust in the currency.  When dealing with crypto, you never want to share any information about your private keys. Those are essential the keys that protect your crypto from being stolen by someone else.  Private keys are stored in a set of 12 or 24 varying numbers of code that are generated at the time you create your crypto wallet.  If you don’t include crypto as part of your estate plan and then something bad happens to you, you could lose the crypto assets that you had.  At the end of the day, crypto is just another form of asset and it’s important to treat them as you would treat any other asset.  
    Quote of the Show:
    "Cryptocurrency is disrupting and revolutionizing the practice of law!"

    171: The Attorney Abuse Must Stop

    171: The Attorney Abuse Must Stop

    Today’s guest is focused on providing groundbreaking, value-driven solutions to continue growing the practice of law. She is driven by her beliefs in technological innovation and working with Lawfecta has put me at the forefront of issues affecting Legal Professionals in the technology realm. Stacey Lake is the Founder and CEO of LawWurk. Stacey joins the host Molly McGrath to talk about how you can better treat your attorneys.
     
    Takeaways:
    Sometimes people forget that attorneys are also human beings and they need to be treated with respect.  When working with a team, you want to give your employees the option to have anonymous feedback to see how you can improve. Self-reflection is an important part of being a boss. The energy that you bring into the room with it will affect how the conversation is going to end up. You have to give your team the respect of time, effort, attention, collaboration, and communication. That will show them that you value them as a member of the team. As a leader, it’s important to keep yourself knowledgeable in leadership and look for thought leaders within your team. If you have a high turnover rate at your company, your customers and others will notice that as well and take note of how you treat people. The energy at a law firm starts with the owner. The attitude of the owner has a trickle-down effect and it can reach all the employees, so have a positive attitude.

    170: The Answer is at your Front Desk

    170: The Answer is at your Front Desk

    In any law firm, there is one person who is an unsung hero and contributes more than you could ever imagine to the team. That would be the person who sits at your front desk. It’s the most important position in not just law firms but in any business really. Join the host Molly McGrath as she shines a light on the receptionist position and how important hiring the right person for that position can be.
     
    Takeaways:
    The answer to every problem you have in your business is in the room. Just look at the person at the front desk and they will be able to help you. Every time you look at the filling cabinet and you get stressed out and not sure how to deal with it, the front desk person can help you clean it up and make it nice and clean. A good front desk employee can help to organize you and get you motivated to get back on track for a project. The receptionist is the one who talks with the clients and knows what they want, so they can help you figure out a better way to reach out to them. Make time to sit down and talk with the receptionist and be as honest and authentic as you can be and make them feel included in the company.  Don’t be afraid to ask the front desk person about what they see in their role and how you can better serve them. It’s important to know if the person at the front desk is capable of giving you ideas or bantering and being a part of the company.

    169: Strategic Planning: How to Build a Results Cycle Law Firm

    169: Strategic Planning: How to Build a Results Cycle Law Firm

    Today’s guest spent several years at a consulting firm coaching over 350 doctors, lawyers, and other professionals until she decided she had enough. Melissa Shanahan is the Founder of Velocity Work and the host of The Law Firm Owner Podcast. Melissa joins host Molly McGrath to talk about how to build high cycle results for your law firm.
     
    Takeaways: 
    There are many law firm owners out there that are ready to take on clients and work but they need guidance on how to run their business. It’s important to have accountability when it comes to running your law firm. You have to take ownership of your business. Most law firm owners are looking for a way to feel organized and feel more in control of the things that are happening around them. You don’t need to be hyper-focused on a certain issue. Hold yourself accountable and bring in others to help you solve the issue. Fun team-building activities shouldn’t replace serious planning for the next quarter. You can still have fun but the serious work needs to be done. Your business is either in a low result cycle or a high result cycle. You can’t be in the middle.  There are three parts to success; know what you are aiming for, make a well-thought-out deliberate plan, and you have to honor your plan.

    “There are Low Results Cycle and High Results Cycle in Business. Where is your Firm today?"
