In this Mastermind, we will discuss:

What my clients say…

“I worked with Steve to plan my transition from an in-house career back to private practice, with the ultimate goal of developing a large enough book of clients to secure my independence from working as someone else’s employee. Steve helped me develop a business plan and coached me in networking tactics, and perhaps most importantly he gave encouragement when the goal seemed too distant. It took a few years, but I recently formed a new boutique law firm with a partner, and I could not be happier.”
