Curious what niche fields you all are aware of. I started my practice a few months ago, focusing on business lit and transactions. I’ve had success, but I feel like I need to zero in on a specialty and direct my marketing that way. So I’m just curious what niche fields are out there. Thoughts?

There's a lot of great podcasts on this. To sum it up, a niche is not the same as your practice area. The rule of thumb is to go two steps further so that when someone has a specific issue you become the "go to." For example, an estate planning attorney that focuses on working with millenials with pets to create pet trusts.

Practice area- Estate Planning
1st step - clients are millenials
2nd step - clients are millenials with pets that need pet trusts.

Hope that helps!

So I'm at an agency and 80%+ of my time is new business. Pitch, win, set-up/semi-service until we get hires, move on to next pitch etc. (w/ fair share of losses too, of course). But I'm burned out. And while I'm valued, I don't see a return on my investments: personal time, my heart (I'm all in) and professional development. I get rewarded with small spot bonuses sometimes, but not a commission. So do I try to pivot to a real bus dev position? I feel confident I could. Anyone seen this done?
