I Planned On Working Alone
The truth is, I've always enjoyed working alone. I love helping others and working with my clients, but I never planned on hiring anyone for my law firm. It is small practice, so why would I need to? That sort of logic seemed rational but it was actually pretty limiting. As a business coach for entrepreneurs, I am constantly implementing tools for growth and breaking down the value of delegation.
You will always go farther with a little help! If you can increase your impact on the world - why not go for it? So that is what I did.
Although I am finally juggling all of the various social media platforms, I spend most of time on Instagram. So when I come across an interesting profile, I usually say hello. You never know when someone might be a great podcast guest, client, or maybe even your very first legal intern. Go figure! Instagram can be a great lead generator just like LinkedIn. It really just depends on how you decide to use the application.
A Few Important Notes About Hiring
Before I dive into how great Julianne turned out to be, I'd like to share a few tips for my fellow law firm owners and other entrepreneurs looking to bring someone new to the team. Consider the following:
Originally from Florida, Julianne has called Brooklyn home for 4 years, ever since she graduated with her Master's in Applied American Politics and Policy from Florida State University. Julianne also worked as a Governmental Affairs Consultant and Political Account Executive before moving to New York in 2016. She is entering her second year of law school this fall at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City, where she will be serving as a Staff Editor for the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution and participating in the New York Attorney General's Social Justice Division Field Clinic. Outside of law school, Julianne is also the creator of @howtobebrokeinnewyork, New York’s leading on-a-budget blog. Through this platform, Julianne provides resources, deals, and events to help others live a great life on a budget, while also hosting live interviews with elected officials and experts to civic engagement, policies affecting affordability for New Yorkers, and systemic disenfranchisement!
