The Reluctant Rainmaker: A Guide For Lawyers Who Hate Selling

The days of having a practice supported simply by being a “great lawyer” are gone forever. Every successful private practice lawyer is now a rainmaker who consistently implements an effective plan for building a full pipeline of new business. Rainmakers harness their unique strengths and perspectives to create a cohesive, strategic, simple-to-implement plan—and they take persistent, focused action on that plan. They create systems and habits to secure new work and serve their clients with excellence. The Third Edition of The Reluctant Rainmaker offers all the information you need to help you create a cohesive business development plan, updated to reflect the changes brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. With new and expanded sections addressing podcasting, virtual networking, videoconferencing, social media, responding to objections you receive when you ask for the business and more, you’ll get a step-by-step guide with clear direction on how you can develop a successful, satisfying, and sustainable practice, all while still being able to look yourself in the mirror. Get your copy here.
