In this episode, Alay, Amanda, and Rob discuss: 

  • Taking the plunge to start your own firm and working with a new partner. 
  • Working with a coach as you start your own firm. 
  • Running a firm with multiple practice areas.

 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Be open and honest with your current firm about your transition to a solo firm. 
  • In order to scale, you have to add people, so get good at hiring.
  • When you begin working with a new partner, you will both have challenges and concerns that need to be addressed in order for the firm to succeed. 
  • Your firm will function well if you honestly communicate with your partner. 

 

Tweetable Moments:

  • “I had a really solid foundation of referral sources and connections in the business that would help launch me.” —  Rob Withrow
  • “I had been by myself for a while, and I developed my way of doing things. I knew that when we worked together, that would have to change.” —  Amanda Mulhall
  • “The important thing is finding the right partner.” —  Amanda Mulhall
  • “You’re never going to be 100% comfortable taking that leap because there’s security in the job that you have. So it’s just lining up as much as you can in advance to make sure that when you do leave, you’re able to start working right away because that’s going to feel good. ” —  Rob Withrow
