Flat Fee Billing With A Kicker
Re-investing Profits: Idiocy Or Confidence?

Partners Can Be Major Drag On Innovation

I often wondered when I was thinking about starting my own firm which direction the firm would head when I no longer had to answer to my partners or other interests. While I am still shedding old skin from an hourly billing life, I have to remind myself to take a look at all that has been achieved. I am surprised at the level of innovation which is possible when you don’t have outside influence weighing you down. If I wake up in the morning with a great idea, I can have that idea implemented by noon. This could never happen in a partnership practice.

One of the great adventures of the independent practitioner is letting the strength of their own thoughts and ideas propel them forward.
