Episode 27: Is the key to unlocking law firm economic success between your ears? An interview with Allison Williams from Law Firm Mentor - Lawyer Community Miniseries - Episode #1

Here on Financially Legal we often focus on the nuts and bolts of finance and economics but, often, the biggest obstacles to economic and business success are not financial or even business-related but mental.

In this episode, we dive in on mindset - and we’re doing it with someone who thinks about this deeply - Allison Williams is a Business Coach for Solo Law Firm Owners at Law Firm Mentor. She’s also the CEO and Founder of a multimillion-dollar law firm, the Williams Law Group.

Allison and I talk about the differences between the CEO mindset and the employee mindset - and why one is not better than the other, but that they’re just different. We talk about the notion of “freedom of money” and a scarcity or abundance mindset - including how lawyers and firms can get more comfortable investing in themselves and their firms - be that through marketing, hiring, or other growth levers.  And so much more.

This is also the first of a series of episodes this month on lawyer communities - you can find our summary discussion of these groups with additional commentary here. As part of Allison’s Law Firm Mentor work, she hosts online (but hopefully soon-to-be back in-person retreats) events and retreats and runs a Facebook group of lawyers who share information about what they’re learning as they work to grow their firms. The group is free for lawyers to join
