How I Built A Virtual Law Practice to Travel the World
It was November 23, 2017, and I remember it like it was yesterday:
My family had just finished our Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone was scattering throughout the house for football games, side conversations, and family photos. I, on the other hand, was hiding in the bathroom on the verge of a panic attack. I had so much work to do, and I felt like I didn’t have time for holidays (pretty sad, huh?). My calendar was booked solid for the next 8 weeks with no days off, and I was desperately trying to keep up with the workload.
On paper, my law practice looked great. I had blown my annual income goals out of the water, and I had more clients than I ever thought possible. The problem? I was burned out, exhausted, and looking for a way out. My dream practice had turned into a nightmare. Why? Because I had built it the way other “successful” attorneys told me to.
On that Thanksgiving Day, I decided that enough was enough. If I was going to continue to practice law, I had to build my law practice around my own version of success and stop doing what other attorneys said success looked like. I wanted a law practice that supported my lifestyle -- not a life that was built around supporting my law practice. I wanted to travel more, create a warmer experience for my clients, and have an additional stream of income that would support me if I needed a break from the constant grind.
Fast forward to today:
I have a completely virtual practice, multiple income streams, and the freedom to travel the world. In fact, I’m leaving next month for Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, and Greece.
If I said it was easy to rebuild my practice on my terms, I would be lying. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Want to know how I did it?
This Thursday, I’m going live in our Facebook Group, The Thriving Lawyer Society, to show you exactly how I rebuilt my law practice to serve my personal goals and vision for my life. We’ll be talking about systematization, income streams, and designing a law practice that works for you. I hope to see you there.
