Great show for lawyer entrepreneurs!

Great show with ideas for lawyers who need to grow their firm beyond the current rut. Once you’ve got a running firm, your challenges change and you’ll need new ideas to get past this plateau. This podcast is the place to get those ideas.

There are many reasons to listen to a podcast- to be entertained, to be informed, maybe even to be inspired. This podcast has all three. Melissa Shanahan gives you a little tough love with a smile. If you add this podcast to your week ...and actually follow the advice she is giving, you will see big changes in your practice. The steps are simple. The execution is hard. But Melissa will get you there if you really want to achieve your goals.
