Today we’re going to talk about quitting your law business.
It’s something we need to talk about because the feeling can come over you unexpectedly, no matter how hard you work.
You feel like you’re doing the best you can under the circumstances, not only running your practice, but managing all aspects of it. Then one day you sit back and think it’s not working.
🟥 You are not making the money that you thought you would make.
🟥 You are always wondering where the next client is coming from.
🟥 You are worried that you won’t be able to pay your team and your bills.
🟥 You are worried that you won’t be able to pay yourself.
Then you start to think that maybe you should work harder, but you know that’s not the answer because you are already working harder.
That’s a lot of time to spend worrying and being frustrated and it could potentially lead you to feeling you want to quit. But what would you do? You’d have to go out and find another job.
You are basically lost. So what’s the next step?
Step back and take a deep breath.
Do whatever it takes to calm down. It’s different for everyone.
Anxiety can lead to bad decisions.
Ask yourself this: “Am I 100% committed to the success of this law firm?”
If the answer is “no”, that’s OK.
Once you’ve decided your answer is “no” you can now develop a transition plan that protects you and your clients and allows you to move on to something new.
If the answer is “yes” that’s OK too.
✔️ Now you can develop an effective business plan.
✔️ You can create the client development plan you need to build a successful law firm.
✔️ You can implement the business processes you need to be efficient and best serve your clients.
✔️ You can stop worrying and start enjoying your law firm.
✔️ Make a list of what is holding you back so you can take steps to solve the problem
If you cannot solve the problems on your own, it’s okay to reach out and ask for help.
You need to know HOW to run a business and practice law simultaneously.

Replace The Rat Race With A Bold, Thriving Law Business
With 16 years in a solo law practice, Sharon Christie discovered that the secret to thriving instead of merely surviving lies in the ability to land great clients…consistently. Sharon cracked the marketing code — catapulting her law practice clientele from ZERO to HUNDREDS in under 9 months — and now reveals her proven 3 step formula to other female lawyers who are ready to replace the rat race with a bold, thriving law business.
Part of her 3 step formula in action is frequent lecturing to professional and community groups, including NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore, the Brain Injury Association of Maryland, the Lupus Foundation, Let’s Talk Sarcoidosis and the Sinai Return to Work Program, and authoring books for her law practice clients such as the 2 books on Social Security Disability benefits, The Unofficial Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits and Can You Win Your Social Security Disability Case?: The Blueprint You Need to Get Social Security Disability.
