How to Build a Successful Solo Law Practice Without Sacrificing Everything Else In Your Life

Don’t Just Earn a Living - Build a LIFE That You LOVE!


Do you ever find yourself thinking… “Is this even worth it?” 

 

You’ve got a successful solo law practice. You’re earning a living. 

 

But at what cost?

 

Are you constantly putting your law practice ahead of all your other priorities in life… getting home too late for dinner, taking work calls when you’re with your family, and checking your email frequently even when you’re on vacation?

 

Do you ever feel like you’ve lost yourself? 

 

Like you’ve had to sacrifice everything to your law practice? 

 

Your family… your hobbies… your health… your TIME… all being forced to take a back-seat to the demands of your practice?

 

Well, there are two things you need to know:

 

First - know that you’re not alone. I’ve spoken to thousands of solo lawyers and worked closely with hundreds of them. These challenges are pervasive - and they’re serious. 

 

Second, please understand that it doesn’t have to be this way

It really is possible to build a successful solo law practice AND still live a life that you LOVE.

This is what it means to build a life - not just earn a living.

This is what it means to THRIVE.

 

You don’t have to choose. You don’t have to compromise. 

 

You can create balance and harmony between your work and the rest of your life.

 

THRIVE is an online coaching program built to help you do exactly that.


Time-Tested, Proven Principles to Take Control of Your Practice - And Your Life

I’ve spent the last twenty years of my life working with solo lawyers just like you. I’ve personally coached hundreds of lawyers through the same challenges that you’re facing. 

  • Not enough time with family
  • No time to pursue hobbies, friends - or even take care of your own health
  • Stuck doing work you don’t like with clients that don’t inspire you
  • Sleepless nights worried about cash-flow
  • No control over how you’re spending your time
  • And so much more

 

If this sounds familiar, I’ve got good news for you: I’ve developed a proven process to help you solve these problems, build a thriving practice, and start enjoying your life again. 

 

In this online coaching program, I’ll lead you through a simple, step-by-step process that will give you the vision and the direction you need to take control of your practice and your life.

 

In just a few minutes each day, you’ll identify, isolate, and master the challenges that are keeping you STUCK and unhappy in your practice. 

 

And, in addition to online learning, you’ll have direct, personal access to me via email as you’re working through these materials. 

 

I’ll provide the inspiration, the strategy, the motivation, and the accountability you need to take control of your solo law practice - and create harmony with the rest of your life.

Real Solutions For Real Solo Attorneys

THRIVE is deeply practical - not theoretical. I teach principles that don’t just “sound good” - they really WORK for busy solo lawyers just like you.

In this course, you’ll hear from many of those attorneys.

Like Michelle - an internationally recognized defense attorney who wanted to be physically and emotionally present for her two young sons. We created a plan, launched a niche practice, and now she owns a thriving solo firm and still has plenty of time and energy to invest in her family.

 

Or Karen - a solo attorney who had always dreamed of teaching a course at law school. We created a strategy, spotted an opportunity, and she achieved her dream.

Or a client who was going through financial difficulty and was completely stressed out about it - to the point where he couldn’t even concentrate on his legal work. I helped him to make a plan, and more importantly, to compartmentalize his finances so that fear and anxiety wouldn’t dominate the rest of his day.

 

This course is created for real attorneys, with real challenges, who need real-world solutions… not theories and ideas that sound nice but don’t make sense in the real world.


Law School Didn’t Prepare You to Run a Business

Let’s face it - when you went to law school, they taught you how to be a lawyer, not a business owner.

 

But as a solo attorney, you are a business owner - like it or not. That means, in addition to doing the legal work, you’re responsible for marketing and business development. You’re responsible for managing the finances. You’re responsible for hiring, training, and firing staff. 

 

Sometimes, it feels like too much weight. 

 

As a solo, it’s easy to feel isolated and it’s easy to be overwhelmed. 

 

I get it. I’ve been there, done that, and coached hundreds of solo lawyers through the same challenges. 

 

As a THRIVE participant, I can do the same for you. I can help you solve problems that are keeping you up at night.  

 

Challenges like…

  • “How do I get my debt under control?”
  • “How can I make sure that clients actually pay my invoices?” 
  • “How do I find the right places to network and build relationships?”
  • “How can I stop email from disrupting my day and ruining my concentration?” 
  • “How can I unplug and actually take a REAL vacation?” 

 

You didn’t learn how to run a business when you went to law school. 

 

This course will give you the practical strategies and solutions you need to get your business under control. 

 

Your practice should be a TOOL that works in harmony with the rest of your life - not a monster that takes it over. 


“Mindset is the most important aspect Paula has helped me with.  I find myself being bolder in my decision-making.”

Are you ready to take control of your practice and build a life that you LOVE? Let’s make it happen... together. 





The Best Investment You’ll Make in Yourself, Your Family, and Your Future

Life is too short - we can’t afford to waste it. 

 

But so many solo lawyers are so busy earning a LIVING, that they never get a chance to enjoy their LIFE.

 

I built THRIVE to help you change that. To help you create a successful solo practice that supports, empowers, and lives in harmony with the rest of your life. 

 

My clients typically pay $20,000 or more for personal, one-on-one coaching. And they’ll tell you - it’s one of the best investments they’ve made. 

 

Through the business development strategies we create, my clients generate enough new business to pay for my coaching many times over. 

 

And even more importantly, they create a practice - and a life - that they love, so that they can actually ENJOY the fruits of their labor. 

 

But I’m not asking you to pay $20,000. 

 

THRIVE is available for just $2,352. 

 

All of my best strategies, tips, and inspiration - available to you at a fraction of the cost that my “in person” clients pay. 

 

And, you can purchase lifetime membership to my online coaching program with just 12 monthly payments of $245. 

 

Now, I recognize that even though $245 a month is much less-expensive than my in-person fees, it’s still a lot of money. 

 

And so I want you to think about this like a business owner. 

 

What’s the return on your investment going to be?

Do you think that the business development strategies I can teach you will result in at least one new client over the next twelve months? 

 

If so… this course is going to pay for itself. 

 

Do you think that the time management strategies I teach you in this course will SAVE you at least $250 per month in wasted productivity? 

 

If so… this course is going to pay for itself. 

 

Do you think that the financial strategies - including debt management, budgeting, and cash-flow management, will save you at least $750 per quarter?

 

If so… this course is going to pay for itself.

 

Do you think that the HAPPINESS this course will unlock, and the HARMONY that this course will create, will help you enjoy your life and not just earn a living?

 

If so… this course is priceless.
