New Solo Success Made Easy!

The episode with Mark on starting a new solo law firm was packed with practical, succinct advice that resonated deeply with me. The way the hosts "demystified" the often overwhelming and terrifying sense of risk for new solos was incredibly reassuring and empowering. A must-listen for any lawyer venturing into solo practice!
