Episode 32 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine
Budgets, law firm marketing and business development. Why are lawyers so bad at running their firms like successful businesses?

Many say five percent of projected annual receipts should be allocated for annual advertising, marketing and publicity efforts.

In today's episode, we'll discuss why I don't believe in "Cookie Cutter" Budgets. Many financial gurus try to sell people on a one-size-fits-all formula of financial management, which is destined to fail for most who try it. I'll talk about why it's important to create a budget customized to your family's situation, needs, and goals. Yes, there are some overarching guidelines that are good for everyone to follow, but how those play out in your individual life are unique - and that's a good thing! I'll also answer listener questions about budgeting.
