Last week I spoke with with Andrea Eisenberg, Managing Director at Preferred Transition Resources, a New York City based firm advising lawyers on career transitions. I was very intrigued by this increase trend of lawyers opening up their solo-practices.
These are my favorite type of clients. Clients/Business Owners who are great at their craft, experts in their field, but need help in setting up and effectively turning their passion into a sustainable business. We at Tiger Cub Advisors enjoy working with solo-preneurs through business coaching or consulting in order to help you create achieve your business goals and vision. Remember the challenges apply on only to lawyers, doctors, but anyone looking to run their own business
Lawyers moving from a firm to their own practice, face common business problems that can overwhelm and hinder growth. However, with a little outside perspective from one of our experts we can work with you and help you manage those growing pains.
