Hello YOE - 4.5, BA in credit risk domain. However, I do not possess enough knowledge in the domain and confused about moving forward with this. What should I work on to excel in the CR domain given I have no certification/courses done around finance?
I’m Leaving my job after 3 months for a dream opportunity that circled back to me. Any advice for how to tell my boss tomorrow virtually? I work in accounting at a tech company. I’m joining a non-tech company (and non-accounting role). I also have the option to not say anything for another month but figured it’s better to say something early on vs. when I fully trained

Was your background check complete before your start date?
The BI onboarding team has a flag on one of my previous employers because of a title discrepancy. This seems minor but they said they would review the flag one week prior to my start date. I don’t understand why they can’t review it now...

I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?
Curious where people got their initial funding when starting a small practice. Did you just bootstrap it, or get a loan? If you got a business loan, any tips or suggestions?

ZolaSuite? Anyone familiar and can provide some feedback - it would be greatly appreciated. Still can’t decide on Clio or PracticePanther, and now just came across ZolaSuite and got intrigued, doing some research and it shows comparable and more.
I need some words of wisdom from this esteemed bowl. I have been an associate for almost 2 years in civil litigation with my bread and butter being family and marital law. I have the drive and desire to operate a solo practice with an emphasis on family law as that is my most comfortable area. I've been loved by all my clients and believe I have the charisma to attract new ones. It's not a matter of if I'll go solo but when. Any advice and/or potential pitfalls of going solo so soon?
Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
Do small firms/boutiques really have better hours than Big Law? A recruiter told me I should still expect to bill 2000 hrs at a boutique, but if that’s the case, why take the pay cut?
How do you keep track of your time when you go solo? Making the transition soon and I'm wondering if I should invest in any specific software.
Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.
I was fired for missing deadlines for 1. A response to a motion that hadn’t been filed (still hasn’t) 2. Writing a difficult petition in 24 hours after another associate took 6 days to submit a blank form. Both times deadline was missed by less than 2 hours, while hospitalized (I have a disability). He knew of the hospitalization and said “he didn’t care about the reason I needed more time.” He came to my hospital room to get the company computer and no other attorney was fired. Is this fair?

Considering exiting small practice for a compliance job. My small practice has about 30-40 active cases of a general practice nature and there is only one other attorney here. I am a 5th year. Any recommendations on how I should approach transitioning in a way that does right by the owner and by my clients?
I have a college student wanting to intern at my new solo firm this summer. I totally can’t afford to pay her, but I also don’t plan on making her “work” but instead will teach her and add value through her internship experience. Is this permissible? Do I need to be cautious for any reason?
