BUCKLE UP. If you’ve been hesitant to adopt AI-powered technology into your life or law firm, you’re in for a surprise! Phones are the next market to get a glow-up with AI, a “once-in-a-decade-upgrade event,” says Bank of America Securities Analyst Wamsi Mohan. Referred to as “Intelliphones,” you can expect more sophisticated options for personalization and a personal assistant competitor who will put Siri to shame.

FAIL MORE. While possibly counter-intuitive, research shows the more you fail [push yourself to do things outside of your comfort zone and simply try new things], the more you succeed. Star psychologist Adam Grant recommends you make a failure budget: explicitly setting a goal for the number of failures you want to rack up in a year. Just make sure yur failures are experimental (result of trying new things), not operational (lack of effort or not learning from the past). 

PODCAST RELAUNCH

It’s official, the first episode of The Law Entrepreneur come-back has dropped!

In this episode, Neil and Sam talk passing the baton, how Sam plans to continue the legacy Neil started with context for why Sam is uniquely positioned to be your new host, and what you can expect from future episodes. 

With My Legal Academy now the driving force behind The Law Entrepreneur relaunch, we plan to over-deliver on value with tips and guidance on the practical application of digital automation tools, convenient insights into how AI will impact the legal and entrepreneurship space, and how implementing all of the above will help you achieve a lifestyle of freedom, balance, and fulfillment.
