ELEVATE

ATTORNEY BUSINESS MASTERMIND

Create your next level of success + impact (building the law practice you actually want).

 

*Interviews currently ongoing for a December 2022 start date.

With Lawyer Leadership & Business Coach (And 18+ Year Lawyer) Heather Moulder

The trust with group members was a critical element. They supported me to follow through on a new side venture while also increasing my book by more than $200,000 (in the midst of the COVID shutdown).

Work with Heather to get to the next level without losing yourself in the process.

Heather found the right calling.

She helped me find – and laser focus on – the client development strategies and sales techniques that work best for me. Working with Heather, I increased my business by close to 30% (and continue to grow).

Frustrated? Exhausted? Unsupported?

Overwhelmed by all the hats you wear (most of which law school never mentioned)?

There aren’t any shortcuts to growing and running a successful law practice. Which you already knew.

It’s just that you’re too busy to even enjoy the practice of law, much less devote time to proper business development. From the outside looking in, you have it together. But on the inside… you feel like a chicken with its head cut off. 

You want to grow your business (especially given the looming recession). You’d like to make more money. But you’re not keen to sacrifice every waking hour to do it.

INTRODUCING

ELEVATE

A high-level leadership & business development experience for savvy attorneys ready for more.

  • More clients
  • More originations + income
  • More support
  • More impact
  • More balance + time
  • More recognition
  • More of what you enjoy

Without the stress, anxiety & overwhelm.

As a high achiever, you’ve adopted the work-hard-to-succeed playbook (we’ve all been told to follow).

Which seems to work…

Until

it doesn’t

It starts to work against you because:

M

Working hard on the wrong things won’t help you.

M

You can’t hustle your way to happiness.

M

Doubling your workload won’t double your business.

M

What got you here won’t get you to the next level (you must start thinking & doing differently).

But there’s good news: the formula for success is simple…

Do what works.

Drop What Doesn’t.

Be consistent.

Unfortunately simple isn’t the same thing as easy – especially for the high-achiever mindset that convinces you to keep pushing (on your own) until you’re so tired you need a distraction.

Rinse + Repeat.

Which Is Where A Mastermind Comes In…

Because what you want and need is:

Help creating a strengths-based game plan so you can get a better ROI (with less effort) and actually enjoy business development.

Support from peers you trust who are on a similar journey and who will brainstorm solutions and new ideas with you (without judgment).

g

Customized guidance from an expert who has been in your shoes (because you’re too close to your practice to clearly see what has you stuck).

Structured accountability that motivates you to stay focused and on-track (and not get distracted when things don’t go as planned).

Expert Strategy. Unyielding Peer Support. Creative Brainstorming. Focused Accountability…

…Basically,

a mastermind.

I Knew I Could Help Other Lawyers After Hitting $2.5MM In Revenues (Built From Scratch After the 2008 Financial Crisis)

Hey there, I’m Heather Moulder.

ATTORNEY. CANCER SURVIVOR. HOST OF THE LIFE & LAW PODCAST.

Here’s what I know about you…

You’ve been pretty successful (at least, on paper).

Yet your practice isn’t where you want it to be. You want more control (and would like to make more money for all the effort you’re putting in). Which requires you build the practice you really want. If only you knew how to make it happen!

You’re driven and willing to work.

But you often feel like you’re spinning your wheels without a clear game plan. Is it too much to want your own book of business, a supportive team to backstop you and the recognition you deserve? [Short answer: no].

You’re an ah-mazing technical lawyer.

But there’s more to practicing law than just advising your clients on legal matters. It’s time to embrace something (I was forced to do)…

You’re not just an attorney, you’re a BUSINESS OWNER.

Picture of Heather on Couch

January 2009. Staring at my dismal collection numbers for the prior year, I worried I couldn’t even meet THOSE in the new one.

The small book of business I’d had when being promoted to partner the prior year had been *poof* wiped out by the 2008 financial crisis. As a semi-introvert who doesn’t love to put herself out there, the thought of rebuilding from scratch

felt

terrifying

(especially during a recession).

But I knew being a service partner with no control over my practice wasn’t going to cut it. And so, I:

N

Created a simple, strengths-based business plan.

N

Tested sales techniques that felt good (none of that “send me business” pushiness).

N

Built a strong support system (and shared my struggles with them).

N

Implemented time-savings systems + processes (everywhere I possibly could).

Within 2 years, my originations hit $1MM. And continued to grow (to $2.5MM+) while navigating maternity leave and a battle with breast cancer.

It’s About Strategy…

Heather and the mastermind group were the perfect combination that provided me with a life raft to calm my mind and think strategically through the COVID shutdown.

The group especially helped give me perspective. I’ve always believed I needed to figure everything out on my own, but know now that’s not true.

If you want strategic legal career advice and accountability, join the mastermind.

It’s About Reenergizing Yourself & Your Practice…

I used to feel overwhelmed by my workload and the pressure to build more business. Heather helped me simplify things and let go of the (mostly self-imposed) pressure I felt. This experience gave me space to think out loud without fear of judgment while also challenging me to rethink (and then refocus on) what’s most important.

I increased my book of business by $100,000 and am maximizing my effectiveness as a manager and leader. Work with Heather if you want to be reenergized professionally while growing your business.

    It’s About Transformation…

    The year before I joined Heather’s Mastermind, I started my solo practice and was struggling with how to grow my client base, manage clients and stay on top of the finance side of things all at once.

    Presenting my ideas to the group – and the feedback I received – helped sharpen my ideas and bolstered my confidence. They reflected my strengths back to me, giving me insight into how my clients see me and how to be a more valuable asset to them. And Heather helped me assemble the jigsaw puzzle of my thoughts in a way that made sense so that I can put them into practice.

    Thanks to this experience, I’m on track to reach (even exceed) my stretch revenue goal and have confidence in my ability to run a business.

    The mastermind is a necessary endeavor for learning who you really are as a professional. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves.

    It’s About Taking Control…

    Heather’s cut-to-the-chase, no nonsense approach plus the support of my group helped me quickly get to the root of why I was struggling (not just address symptoms) and act on my outside-of-the-box ideas.

    I’m finally in control of my practice, doing more of what I love to do (which doesn’t even feel like work)!

    It’s About Confidence & Consistency…

    The business development intimidation factor that had been holding me back has been eliminated. Business development is no longer an ambiguous concept or theory, but consists of real-world strategies that I can implement immediately.

    As a result, I’m more consistent and actually enjoy business development. I now realize that I’d been sidelining myself assuming that I didn’t have time for proper business development. And that small habits can create big changes.

    You’ll be challenged but you’ll see real results if you put in the work.

    Got Questions? Here are answers to the most common questions…

    How Big Is The Time Commitment (I'm Already So Busy)?

    I’m known for my blunt honesty, and so here’s the truth…

    Your business won’t grow by itself. And it certaintly won’t be the practice you really want without putting some time and effort into it.

    The more time you put in the more you’ll get out of your investment.

    But please note: you’ll be building the foundational skills and habits you need that will save you time and energy in the future. And it won’t take up nearly as much time as you think.

    Group mastermind meetings last about 90 minutes each. And you choose how much time outside of that to put into client development (which will vary based on your strategies, circumstances and goals).

    But note: we’ll narrow your strategies to just 1 or 2 based on your strengths + personality. This will simplify your efforts, save you time and make it more fun.

    Why a 6-month commitment?

    Making big changes (to your habits, your life and your practice) don’t just happen overnight. This is the minimum time needed to create habits and start seeing real results from your efforts. In all honesty, it could be longer (12 months).

    What Results Can I Expect?

    While I can’t guarantee specific results, I’m 100% committed to you and will always bring my best to our coaching.

    The truth is that there’s no magic bullet. Your results are dependent on your willingness to be 100% open and honest, and the work you put in.

    How Do Mastermind Meetings Work? What If I Need To Miss One?

    I’ve been there, so understand how hard it is to commit to regular meetings. Clients spring new emergencies on you daily. But I do expect you to show up to 90% of your mastermind meetings (and to let me know well ahead of time if you cannot make one).

    Masterminds work incredibly well so long as all members attend regularly. We’ll set up a regular time/date that works for everyone at the outset so that you can block off that time and guard it as if your practice depends upon it (because it does).

    What's Your Refund Policy?

    You’re committing to serve the other members of your group. This also affects how many spots are available. For these reasons, there are no refunds for ELEVATE once you’ve joined the mastermind (other than if I cancel, as set forth in your coaching agreement).

    No one has ever requested a refund and I don’t expect you to. That’s why we must chat first. It will allow:

    • Me to adequately determine whether (and how) I can help you,
    • You to get your questions answered, and
    • Both of us to determine whether this would be a fit.
    Is This Right For Me If I'm Not Sure About Staying In Private Practice?

    If you’re at the point where you’re not sure that you want to stay in private practice (or even the legal profession) or are too burned out to know what you want, Inside-Out Success Coaching is perfect for you (NOT my business coaching or masterminds). Go here for more about Inside-Out Success Coaching.

    What About Confidentiality (Especially If My Employer Pays)?

    I take my clients’ privacy and confidentiality seriously, and am subject to the ICF Code of Ethics (which can be found here).

    Before we begin working together, we’ll sign a coaching agreement that contains specific provisions around confidentiality (that will apply to our arrangement regardless of who pays).

    Still have unanswered questions? Email me at heather@heathermoulder.com.

    The truth is…

    You chose to be a lawyer for a reason. Creating the practice you really want – on your own terms – is THE path to making the impact you wanted. For your clients, your family and yourself.

    And although you could do it on your own, going solo hasn’t yet gotten you where you wanted to be (otherwise you wouldn’t be here). What will get you there?

    • A simple, strengths-based plan,
    • Plus strategic support,
    • Plus structured accountability,
    • Plus systems that save you time.

    All the things ELEVATE is designed to give you.

    Having this type of strategy and support might not sound all that exciting but it’s the BEST way to get to the next level without burning out.

    Which leaves you with 3 options…

    (1) Continue on as-is, risking that you’ll continue to waste valuable time + energy (and never see the results you want).

    (2) Invest more time and energy to figure out your missing piece on your own (hoping you don’t burn out in the process).

    (3) Get the support you crave through the Mastermind that’s designed to help you avoid common traps so you can achieve what you want more quickly.

    If you’re ready to elevate your practice and leadership, and #3 is calling out to you. . .

    …then I’d be thrilled to help you get to that next level (and beyond) with confidence and grace (plus some fun!).

    I can’t wait to celebrate your skyrocketing success + impact with you.
