Leverage the 80/20 Principle
When you use the right strategies, you can more easily get what you truly want from your law business.
The best strategies can also sometimes seem like magic, which is true of the 80/20 Principle (or Pareto's Principle). Many people have used this principle to achieve extraordinary results with minimal effort or resources.
So the first strategy to adopt is the 80/20 principle, but there's a...
It's important to understand that the 80/20 principle is not a get-rich-quick proposition.
Leveraging the 80/20 Principle takes time, effort, and thoughtfulness. But the payoff is huge, and that's why it seems magical.
In a sense, technology is a part of any 80/20 leverage process. But it's not just about adopting technology in general.
It's about using a few key strategies, tactics & tools. And adopting them in the right order.
Finally, it's vital to stay focused on executing these strategies & tactics over time, which is probably the most challenging part.
And that's why the Co-Pilot program was created.

What One Member Says About Her Experience in Co-Pilot...
Family Law Practice | Hermosa Beach, CA
“Before I joined I felt overwhelmed with so many things that I felt I should be doing but not knowing where to start.
Having access to Ernie & the other lawyers in this program helped me feel more confident and clear about what to do next.
Usually, it's just me at my firm that is working on the business, and I hate feeling like it is all on my shoulders.
I've been given concrete steps to improve my practice. All of it is very doable, and it never feels like too much.
Co-Pilot helps me to keep working on my business, not just in my business."
