Join Me In St. Louis For A Day Of Practice-Building

When the number of filings is falling and competition for clients is cut-throat, what you need is a day of fresh ideas and how-to’s to jump start your practice.

Jay Fleischman and I have put together an intense day long workshop for June 9th at an airport hotel in St. Louis to focus on those real world issues of expanding networks, becoming an authority, getting a website that really works for you.

We’re going to talk about getting paid what you’re worth, which social media outlets are worthwhile for lawyers and how to market without money.

I know it’s a distance. Jay’s not willing to do it in California since he’s moving here: he sees no point in educating his SoCal competition. So if this appeals, you’ve got to join us mid continent.

You’ll come back with new ideas, a set of immediately usable skills, and Jay’s top ten lists for lots of marketing stuff.

The price is about half a Chapter 7 fee, and Jay’s said I can offer a $100 discount to those who follow me here.

The whole story is on the Bankruptcy Practice Workshop page. Enter the promo code california to save $100 off the registration fee.
