FREE Webinar for Lawyers Using TextExpander! “How Efficient Law Firms Automate Communication and Writing” – July 19, 2017

I’m honored to be co-presenting a FREE webinar on how law firms can use TextExpander efficiently and expertly along with Smile Software and GlobalMac IT.

If you’re a lawyer, then you do a LOT of typing throughout your day.

If you do a lot of typing, then you can SAVE TIME by having TextExpander type things FOR you!

I’ve been doing a lot of presentations recently to lawyers and law firms to show them how TextExpander can be an amazing addition to the tech-tools they use everyday.

In this FREE webinar, we’ll show you how TextExpander works, how to create your first snippets, and share some tips & tricks for making sure TextExpander becomes an indispensable tool for your practice.

More information on the Registration Page.

Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to talking with you on July 19, 2017 (the webinar will be recorded so be sure to sign up even if you can’t make the live presentation).

Get Away and Get To Work … on Streamlining and Improving Your Practice!

Lawyers always ask me “why can’t someone just SHOW ME how to easily and effectively implement technology in my practice?” That’s a hard thing to do in an hour-long CLE or webinar.

That’s why I’m excited about the 2-day, live, Small Firm Bootcamp I’m involved in on May 18 & 19 down in New Orleans.

Instead of a typical CLE seminar where folks are reading newspapers or trying to secretly knock out some work, the Small Firm Bootcamp offers sessions and WORKSHOPS designed to get you actively participating in learning how to vastly improve the way you run your practice.

“I recommend this seminar to anyone who wants to work smarter…while watching everyone else run around in circles.”—Catherine Fairchild

I’m excited about ALL the speakers coming to the Small Firm Bootcamp, but here are a couple of highlights:

  • Building Your Brand by Mike Kim. Marketing isn’t just about passively “letting people know who you are when they need a lawyer.” You need to know how to build your “brand” so you’re getting the specific message to the specific clients that YOU want to work with. That’s what Mike Kim will be covering.
  • Implementing Systems in your Law Practice with John Fisher. If you’ve read any of the E-Myth books by Michael Gerber, you’ll recall that he talks about creating systems that can be repeated so that you can AUTOMATE those systems and free up your time. Of course the practice of law can’t be simplified into a system, and yes you are a unique lawyer and can’t be replaced with a system … but the TASKS that you have to manage and oversee everyday CAN be systematized so that you can spend time on the things that you WANT to focus on. John Fisher wrote the book “The Power of a System” and will be sharing his experience at the Small Firm Bootcamp (just look at those Amazon reviews!).

“I learned how to develop systems that will make my practice more efficient and profitable” —Christine Senne, Florida attorney

You should absolutely read through web page describing the Small Firm Bootcamp to learn more about the entire course, what we’ll be covering, watch testimonials from other attendees, and get answers to all your questions.

If you attend the live Small Firm Bootcamp, you ALSO get access to the Law Firm Autopilot online course! This course goes into more detail on all the modules, and you get complete access to it. Plus I know Ernie is refreshing all the content in the course and you’ll get access to ALL of it!

If that’s not enough, your entire investment in the Small Firm Bootcamp is COMPLETELY RISK FREE! Unlike others, Ernie is gracious to offer a 100% risk free guarantee – if you have to cancel for any reason, you’ll get a full refund. That’s amazing.

One more thing: you get access to the private Facebook Group where there are amazing discussions happening daily from folks asking and answering questions on how they’re automating their law practices. I’ve been in the Group for the last few days and having a blast interacting with all the members.

Now you’re asking, “yeah, but what does it cost?” And I would say turn that question around and ask “what will it cost me if I DON’T attend?” If you choose to miss this, then you’ll just keep trudging along in your day-to-day stress, getting overwhelmed with everything you NEED to do but never have TIME to do, never getting the clients you want, and wasting your time on the management and technical problems that you don’t like to deal with.

The price of the Small Firm Bootcamp right now is $1,150 but I know Ernie is raising that price soon as we get close to the date. But I am offering you a substantial discount that brings the price UNDER a thousand dollars. All you have to do is send me an e-mail and ask. I can’t give this out to everyone, but if you send me a quick message I’ll be happy to send you a coupon link to save an amazing amount on this amazing opportunity.

I hope to see you there!

FREE Webinar “Magic Text Creation for Busy Lawyers” with the Amazing TextExpander (Thurs., Feb. 23, 2017)

Do you type?

Do you want to save valuable minutes every day?

If you answered “Yes” to both questions (who wouldn’t???) then read on …

 

It amazes me how many lawyers actually CHOOSE to perform extra, manual, senseless work that the computer can do for them. Valuable minutes are wasted every day typing the same repetitive keystrokes. TextExpander tangibly and practically improves your daily efficiency and your overall practice. (Just ask Neil Tyra of The Law Entrepreneur!)

If you type everyday, and you long to be more efficient, then you can’t afford to miss a FREE webinar this Thursday (Feb. 23, 2017) where you will learn EXACTLY how to incorporate the indispensable TextExpander into your practice.

This FREE webinar is hosted by my good friend Ernie Svenson (aka “Ernie the Attorney”) who also offers the fantastic Small Firm Bootcamp course. I’ve been working with Ernie on cooking up a live Small Firm Bootcamp event offering hands-on workshops on items like TextExpander. We’ll provide more info on the live Bootcamp soon, but for now just sign up for the FREE webinarMagic Text Creation for Busy Lawyers” and you’ll be on the mailing list to learn more.

I’ve spoken about the remarkable benefits of TextExpander before in November of 2012. Planet10Tech was gracious to record the presentation but so much has changed and improved in the last 4 years that you need to attend the FREE webinar this Thursday (Feb. 23). I’ll show you exactly how to incorporate TextExpander into your practice.

If you’re repeatedly typing the same things every day like e-mail addresses, client or judges’ names, thank you e-mails, date & time stamps, etc., then you are LITERALLY WASTING TIME!!

We’ll start off with simple snippets in TextExpander and then dig a little deeper into constructing complicated documents and designing form fields. And lastly I’ll share a gaggle of valuable tips & tricks to ensure you’re getting the most out of TextExpander. And like past webinars, we’ll keep answering your questions for as long as you’re asking them!

FREE Webinar! Brett Burney to Speak on Boosting Mac Efficiency in Small Law Firms – December 15, 2016

Are you already using a Mac in your practice but believe you should be MORE efficient?

Are you considering moving from Windows to a Mac but just want to be sure it’s the right decision?

Then don’t miss my FREE webinar I’m hosting with my friend Ernie Svenson (aka Ernie the Attorney) at Paperlesschase.com and Small Law Firm Bootcamp. I’ve know Ernie for many years ever since he started using a Mac in his law practice.

Last week I gave a presentation on Macs at the Ohio State Bar Technology Conference and a gentleman attended who had been using a Mac for 2 months. He recently switched after getting completely frustrated with the “forced” updates from Microsoft to upgrade to Windows 10. We had a great discussion and I offered him several suggestions for streamlining his daily work on the Mac and he was thrilled.

I’ve updated my entire presentation on laywers using Macs and can’t wait to present “Boosting Mac Efficiency in Small Law Firms” on Thursday, Dec. 15 from 1:00pm-2:00pm Eastern.

The Name Game: How to Manage & Organize Your Digital Documents – ABA TECHSHOW Summer Series (Thurs. July 16, 2015)

Since I was the Chair of the 2015 ABA TECHSHOW Planning Board (which took place on April 16-18, 2015), I’m a little biased when it comes to how great the educational sessions were. So good, in fact, that the Legal Technology Resource Center (LTRC) picked up several sessions for the “ABA TECHSHOW Summer Series” of webinars.
The first is “The Name Game: How to Manage & Organize Your Digital Documents” that will take place on Thursday, July 16, 2015 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm Eastern. Registration is available here and is only $50 for ABA Members (only $75 if you’re not a member).

The presenters are Nancy Duhon of Duhon Technology Solutions LLC and Steve Best of Affinity Consulting and who also happens to be the Chair of the 2016 ABA TECHSHOW Planning Board.

The material covered in this webinar will apply to any lawyer, regardless of whether you’re using a Mac or Windows computer. But I fin that most Mac-using lawyers don’t have a formal legal document management system and so this webinar will be extremely relevant and helpful.

I encourage you to read more and register for “The Name Game: How to Manage & Organize Your Digital Documents.”
