Scaling Up with James Grant

In this episode, Alay and James discuss: 

  • Lessons learned while growing your firm.
  • Growing into your entrepreneurial mindset. 
  • Changing your mindset from lawyer to business owner.
  • How business coaching can help change the mindset and grow the firm.


Key Takeaways: 

  • Working excessive hours is worn as a badge of honor for many in the legal profession. You should not be doing that – don’t start a business to become a slave the business. 
  • Law school teaches you how to think like a lawyer, but that doesn’t translate to running a business. 
  • In order to scale and grow you must learn to delegate. You do not need to be the best in every aspect of your firm. 
  • As a law firm, most things can be fixed (except missing the statute of limitations). 



Tweetable Moments:

  • “The job of the entrepreneur is to be a visionary.” —  James Grant
  • “There are different challenges with each stage and, as the owner, you almost feel like you’re reinventing yourself as you go through these different stages.” —  Alay Yajnik
  • “The way that you run a $250,000 a year business is not the way you run a $3 million business” —  James Grant
  • “If you want to grow your firm to any kind of significant size, you’re going to have to learn to delegate. No one can be good at everything, and no one has the time to be good at everything.” —  Alay Yajnik
