    Jim Salmon of Navy Federal Credit Union is guest on Small Business Week

    in Lifestyle

    Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.


     


    LIfe Lessons kicks off National Small Business Week with Jim Salmon, the head of Business Lending at Navy Federal Credit Union. Salmon shres how to start and grow a business, and he'll share information about programs designed to help military veterans run a successful business. A military veteran himself, Salmon will also discuss why it's good business to support veteran-owned and operated businesses and how veterans have many of the skills necessary to run a successful business.  


     


    We hear a lot about helping our brave veterans, but the sad fact is that despite an improving economy, many have difficulty finding employment after leaving the military. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), young male veterans, ages 18 to 24, who served during the Gulf War II era, including those who have served at any time since September 2001, had an unemployment rate of 21.9%(more than double the national average).

    Pick Up The Pace

    in Business

    Take it or leave it. Too many firms are still operating with this recession era mentality and losing candidates to other firms.


    On this show, I walk through some of the BLS numbers and point out some changes you need to make.


     


    Hiring staff doesn't have to be hard, difficult, painful, exhausting or take so long.


    For most organizations, the systems you have in place do not facilitate hiring well-enough but does a great job of facilitating "applicant tracking."


    Sometimes you need recruiting help. Contact me at JeffAltman@TheBigGameHunter.us and lets figure out a time to speak.

    SwCA Episode 190: How Did You Open Your Own Law Firm At Age 26?

    in Business

    SHOW NOTES: This episode is, “How Did You Open Your Own Law Firm At Age 26?"

    I opened my law firm when I was 26 years old. My office was in a lower income part of town next to railroad tracks. My office rent was less than $300 a month. I had no financial help from anyone. It was one of the best decisions of my life (economically, emotionally, professionally, etc.)! 

     

    1) Why?

    Why not?

    - I made a fantastic income and I was in control of my destiny!

    Solo Practitioners annual income  in Texas $97,142 (2009 data) ( https://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Archives&Template=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=11241)

    - I am not alone.

    “The number of recent law graduates going solo increased from 3.5 percent in 2008 to 5.5 percent in 2009, the biggest one year jump since 1982, the National Association for Law Placement (NALP) reports. That percentage increased to 5.7 percent of all private practice jobs for the class of 2010, the highest it’s been since 1997.”

    (http://www.nbcnews.com/id/43442917/ns/business-careers/t/law-grads-going-solo-loving-it/#.U_T1-bxdVmg)

    "As of 2005, some 62 percent of attorneys in private practice work as solo or small-firm practitioners, according to the most recent data avail­able from the American Bar Association. "

    (http://www.abajournal.com/magazine/article/so_you_want_to_go_solo_you_sure/)

    "Solo practice: ~271,000, or 35% of US lawyers (this takes the ABF estimate of the share of lawyers in solo practice and multiplies it by the total number of lawyers in law offices reported by the BLS) (id.)";
