» This is my Shingle from Home Office Lawyer
I have watched the conversation going on today concerning whether we should call it hanging your own shingle or something else. Chuck Newton over at the Spare Room Tycoon had a post today called, Spare the Shingle, Reward the M-Theory. [Read More]

I like your M-theory...."Hang a shingle" is quaint and insider lingo and one interpretation could be excessive overhead...but I'm not sure I agree it rises to the level of your discussion. I see it more representinig a solo's philosophy on lawyering, "breaking away from the establishment" "pioneering your your own frontier" "being the master of your own fate." After all...isn't the website for your virtual office your Third Wave carpet-commuting "shingle" and there still is a small cost associated with keeping your "shingle" out there?
And, yes, you quoted me correctly. "You are the product and everything else is overhead." If you are a smart business person, it is much, much less overhead. Once you adopt this philosophy you realize all you don't need to function as a talented advocate.

I have been teaching lawyers for years, who want to leave jobs at big firms to "fly solo" that being out on your own vs. flying solo inside the establishment of a larger organization is mostly a state of mind.

But just like Neo in The Matrix who took the red pill and suddenly woke-up and could see clearly how everything really works, lawyers who finally wake up and understand "The Golden Rule" when it comes to law firm management, can adjust their own "M Theory" and set themselves free to earn alot more money, have alot more free time, greater career satisfaction and alot more fun too!

And the results can even be kind of scary (in a good way), when lawyers who are already out on their own finally "get it".

To learn what "The Golden Rule" is , and learn how you can set yourself free, visit my blog where I have a more detailed explanation posted.

Respectfully,
