What is the Estate Planning Practice Growth Program?

The Estate Planning Practice Growth Program™ (EP PGP) is a group coaching program designed to significantly increase your income, dramatically decrease stress, and ensure you implement the fundamental practice management systems that reduce the firm’s dependency on you. This powerful program uses proven methods to break down the steps behind creating the life and practice you desire. The skills required to start a practice are different from the tools required to grow and scale that practice. The EP PGP program helps you assess exactly where you need support and assists you in creating a plan and implementing changes that revolutionize your practice.

3 CORE ELEMENTS

How the EP PGP Works

  1. A focus on the cornerstones of practice growth: Every law practice desiring substantial growth and freedom must master time management, client development, staffing, and cash flow/profitability.
  2. A proven formula for implementation: Discover how to immediately implement significant change in your practice and life.
  3. A robust community of support: Join with like-minded estate planning attorneys for monthly intensive, half-day coaching workshops facilitated by experienced attorneys and coaches who have created the same change you hope to see in your firm. These attorneys and coaches will facilitate a step-by-step breakdown of the turnkey law office systems into smaller, manageable action steps.

The EP Practice Growth Program is the key to:

  • Increase revenue by at least 25%, potentially doubling your revenue thereafter
  • Attracting the clients you enjoy serving
  • Creating systems and processes that bring freedom by allowing you to take more time off
  • Hiring and developing a strong team of dynamic individuals who help keep your practice running smoothly
