In this episode, Alay and Brittny discuss: 

Adjusting to leaving a larger firm for a solo or small firm. 
Finding partners and resources to assist with specific tasks. 
The benefits and challenges of partnering in your firm. 
Finding the balance of bringing in and redirecting work. 


Key Takeaways: 

The bar association has a solo/small firm section which is a great resource for you as a small or solo organization. 
When starting your own firm, there are two roles we suggest you fill right away: a bookkeeper/accountant and an IT person.
Your role in the firm is likely to change as your firm grows and evolves. 
Even if you don’t want to grow, find the work that brings you personal satisfaction. 


Tweetable Moments:

* “The biggest challenge was losing my colleagues and losing the staffing support. As a solo, I had to kind of come up with…surrogate work colleagues and surrogate staffing support.” —  Brittny Bottorff
* “If you find that you’re doing tasks where you have to routinely discount your rate, or write off time…that’s a signal that you might need to hire for that role.” —  Alay Yajnik
* “You want to make sure you partner with the right person, because it’s a big commitment, and it’s a big undertaking to do together.” —  Brittny Bottorff
* “If you’re looking to grow your firm, one of the biggest mistakes that I find attorneys make is they wait too long before they hire people. The opposite is also a problem, which is if you hire too early, and you don’t want that either. One of the ways that we help our clients walk that line is the 20/10/5 rule.” —  Alay Yajnik
