Fast track partners, er...fast track lawyer entrepreneur!

Well since I'm already the sole owner (no partner sharing here...at least for now) of a law firm, I'm not all that interested on the fast track to partner status, but, National Law Journal (10/31/05) does have a useful piece on Fast-Track Partners. There's some very applicable stuff to practice building in general. These comments from the new partners stood out to me:

*Don't make an accelerated career a goal: If you do excellent, top-shelf work, people will notice.
*Find a practice you enjoy.
*Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and take risks.
*Find out what organizations your clients belong to an join those groups.
*Volunteer; volunteer; volunteer...it will come back to you tenfold.
