Any suggestions for an organizational/organization expert, coach, or someone that helps with getting firms organized? We need to be more efficient and have better systems in place.

Brief problem: We feel that we (partners) are unorganized, and as a result our staff is following the same disorganized structure and we’re not getting as much work/tasks completed as we should.

I need someone to help whip us into shape.

I have a consultant I used. She works remotely and is great!

I would be interested in talking to you. I started my own firm a little over a year and a half ago after working at a prior firm that purchased and merged another firm in. It was quite an experience, but I absolutely loved working on the logistics.

I left my prior firm in part because there were inefficiencies that were impeding the firm’s success. Since I have left, the owner advised me that she has put at least one of my requests in place and it appears they have incorporated more requests into their firm as well.

Logistics has always been something I have helped with wherever I have been.

I considered being a business coach at one point, but I wanted to actually get in the business and work on logistics instead of asking questions that help owners realize they need to make changes.

Feel free to send me a DM if you are interested in talking further. Great job recognizing the need for some possible change! That is such a difficult process to go through sometimes.

I’m a 3rd year insurance defense attorney in a small town. So far this year through June I’ve billed $110,000 and collected $95,000. I expect the second half of the year to be about the same. My salary is $53,000, with potentially bonus at the end of the year (totally the discretion of the partners). Benefits are fine but nothing special. Am I being undercompensated? I enjoy where I live, the work I do, and the low cost of living, but it’s hard to build up savings on my current salary.
