Follow me on Snapchat @nic_abboud and send me your questions, I’ll send you back my answers.

My guest today is John Skiba, a consumer debt collection and bankruptcy attorney in Arizona. John is a solo practitioner and fellow podcaster. His podcast, the JDBlogger podcast, focuses on smart legal marketing techniques.

  • Incorporating technology into your practice is essential to a solo practitioner’s success
  • How to strike a balance between work and life when you work from a home office
  • Why your mentors can be wrong about the advice they give you
  • The benefits of starting a podcast are endless, especially for attracting clients
  • Video is the most powerful tool to converting clients
