    "Lauren is a go-getter. I have seen her rise from being a broke lawyer to a six-figure earner. This book is a guide that is created from her charging down this path and forging her own way forward. She has laid out each and every step for you so that you can skip the figuring out part of how to run a business and jump straight ahead to earning a great living and doing life-changing work."
    - From the Foreword by Ally Lozano, Esq., Law Firm Business Consultant

    Lauren Eagan has done everything she writes about, and with her guidance you can begin with a strong foundation to make sure everything is in place to make your firm last.

    Starting in a new city with student loan debt, Lauren Eagan explains how she effectively built her business. She explains how you, too, can take advantages of resources you might not have known were available, such as free and low-cost technology solutions, online resources, and leveraging the skills of your friends, family, and mentors.

    More than anything, starting your practice depends on your own hard work, research, and decision process all dedicated to achieving your goal. Following the book's path towards opening your own practice, Lauren Eagan explains these key ingredients in the mix:

    • Doing the necessary work while getting started: contract work, document review, and more
    • Adding a business focus to how you think: goal setting, choosing a business entity, bank accounts, insurance and taxes
    • Make your firm seem established: names, logos, office space, and online communications
    • Determine a target market and get clients: from networking to volunteering and giving presentations to the importance of social media
    • Case management: software and systems
    • How to get paid: fee arrangements, invoices, and how to follow up
    • Planning in time for you: vacations, weekends, and adding efficiency
    • Know when you're ready to grow: outsourcing, delegating, and hiring
    • And finally, What to do when you’re ready to start: create a business plan

    Chapters are accessible and encouraging, tackling topics that can be overwhelming in a constructive, step-by-step manner. Throughout, the author has shared checklists, flow charts, plenty of real-world tips that she used in setting up her successful law firm, and a chapter checklist to capture the core information by topic.
