We welcome Dana C Palmer, Esq. back on the Law Business Podcast.
To listen to our previous interview with him, please check out episode 012.
The reason we called Dana back the show is because recently he took six (yes, 6!) weeks off of work with emergency access only, and while he was away, his law firm continued to function normally.
We were curious about how he achieved this level of freedom, and what preparations were necessary for his law firm to function without him being in the office.
Dana was more than generous in sharing every detail about the process he went through to achieve his goals.
Taking six weeks off cannot be done without motivated team members. Dana talks about how he finds the right employees, and how he keeps them motivated.
As a real CEO, Dana works a lot on building his business, but spends progressively less time doing actual legal work. To buy his time back and to be able to focus on higher level issues, he kept hiring new team members to replace himself.
Listening to Dana’s experiences really clarifies what “working on your law firm” means in practice.
