When you own your own business, the buck really does “stop here.” I would encourage any attorney who is contemplating going out on their own to make sure that they continually remind themselves to balance the law firm,their clients, their family and their friends.
It is very easy to get lost with all the day to day management issues when you are running your own law firm. The task list never ends. The to-do list continues to grow longer each day. At some point, you can get lost with all the day to day activities of your firm. Remember, you have chosen an independent practice in order to obtain a better quality of life.
Trust me. The rest will simply work out.
