The Real Reason You Aren’t Delegating
By now, I am sure you have heard a lot about the importance of delegating. There isn’t a business coach out there that won’t bring up delegation and say you should be doing more of it. Why? Because it’s great advice!Despite all the great advice, I find many women law firm owners still really struggle with delegating. Why are we like this? 😊In today’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer® Podcast, we are going to take on this hot topic and get to the root cause of why we aren’t delegating enough and what we can do instead.Listen in as I share with you:6 red flags that are warning signs you are not delegating enough—if you spot ‘em, you’ve likely go ‘em! (These aren’t the only red flags but it’s a great place to start.)10 reasons why we don’t delegate enough even when we know we “should.”My down and dirty quick trick to help you get clear on what must be delegated immediately!

Why Solos Aren’t 7-Figure Law Firm Owners
Oct 7 2022
Why Solos Aren’t 7-Figure Law Firm Owners
In today’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer® Podcast, I want to discuss something that most law firm coaches are afraid to tell you: it is highly unlikely to achieve 7 figures in a law firm business if you are still operating as a solo.Yes, even if you have one or two staffers working for you.It’s a hot topic, and we are going to get into it today. If you are a solo and you are listening to this thinking “Davina, that’s not true! Don’t crush my dreams!” I hear you, and I encourage you to please hear me out, because after 9 years—almost 10—of helping women law firm owners scale their law firm businesses I never want to crush someone’s dream or tell them about “reality.” I believe we have the power to create our own reality—however, the path to get there may not look the way we envision.What I do want to do in today’s episode is challenge some of the beliefs that may be holding you back from achieving your biggest, baddest, most audacious goals.Listen in as I share with you:Why I’ve devoting all of October to discuss how to expand your capacity for wealth and a $1M law firm business.The one question I hear all the time that keeps women law firm owners stuck doing it all.My recommended time frame for hiring your first one or two employees (or virtual assistants)The top revenue I think you can achieve as a solo and why I don’t think you should strive for this (Hint: you’ll pay a steep personal price to get there).Why the same thing that go you to where you are today as a solo is not the same thing that’s required to get you to the next level.The middle-America belief that likely is holding you back (It did me for far too long).The secret of any solo who says they are making a million dollars or more all by themselves (There’s more going on behind the curtain than you realize).14 questions to help you identify whether it’s time to uplevel your mindset so you can expand your capacity for wealth. I do hope you enjoy today’s show.

Christie Arkovich | Can You Build Wealth with 6-Figures in Student Loan Debt?
In this episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer® podcast, I chat with Christie Arkovich, a Florida licensed attorney for more than 30 years, and a frequent presenter for continuing legal education seminars hosted by the American Bankruptcy Institute (“ABI”), the National Association of Consumer Advocates (“NACA”) and the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association (the “TBBBA”). Christie also writes a quarterly column for the TBBBA, Student Loan Sidebar, and maintains a Youtube Channel for the Student Loan Sidebar at www.youtube.com/c/arkovichlaw about recent student loan related laws, regulations, and developments nationwide.Prior to starting her own law firm in 1995, Christie worked as trial counsel for Sallie Mae, ECMC and other student loan servicers or guarantors. She recently served on the Student Loan Committee for the new Student Loan Management Program in the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida and was Chair of the Consumer CLE for the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association for 2019-2022.“Most of our clients nowadays, you know, they want to repay what they borrow, they understand they signed a contract (and) they're good with that. What they can't pay is the excessiveness…because with the cost of interest with a default, which basically adds 25%collection costs on a federal loan, you end up with just something that's unpayable. We getrid of that excessiveness, and then we try to do it in a way that's tax free, or at least with anunderstanding of what that potential tax issue could be..” – Christie ArkovichListen in as Christi and I discuss…Why people were able to pay their student loans in the 80s and 90s (even with higher interest rates) and what’s changed since (no, it’s not your imagination)How to explain to your grandma why you are struggling to pay your student loan debt.How Arkovich Law helped a 70-year-old neurosurgeon get out from under $1.1M in debt so he could finally retire.The many ways high student loan debt can affect your ability to lead a rich life.Why forbearance is never the best solution (even though the lenders so kindly offer it—don’t be fooled!)How the three-pronged Bruner test keeps you from discharging student loans in bankruptcy (A clear example of “good cases make bad law”).How to refresh your memory about what kind of loan you have so you can assess what type of relief may be available to you.One trick that will help you tell whether your student loan servicer is lying to you about what type of loan you have and the relief you may be entitled toCritical deadlines you need to know! (Write these down.) (Important update: Since we recorded this podcast episode on September 27th, the law has changed around consolidating FFEL loans—government-backed loans held by private lenders—in that effective September 29th, you can no longer consolidate these types of loans to Direct Loans and quality for the one-time $10,000 relief grant).And much, much more!The Wealthy Woman Lawyer® Podcast is sponsored by Wealthy Woman Lawyer.®  We help women law firm owners scale their law firm businesses to and thru $1M in gross annual revenue with total ease so they can fully fund—and still have time to enjoy—the lifestyle of their dreams!
