This post is a continuation on how Twitter has transformed the way we will approach tradeshows.
Carolyn‘s blog, MyShingle, is the longest-running blog for and about solos and small firms, covering topics such as how to start a firm, working from home, and maximizing use of technology. Carolyn saw a huge gap in the resources and tools offered to solos and small firms, and created MyShingle around filling that void. Again, in our meeting I felt that Carolyn and I really connected at a level, as Clio was also created with the co-operation of the Law Society of British Columbia with a view to helping solos and small firms manage their clients and matters and, most importantly, avoid malpractice and ethics complaints.
MyShingle just isn’t about helping existing solos and small firms out however – Carolyn actively evangelizes the Solo / Small Firm lifestyle. MyShingle’s companion e-book, Solo By Choice, covers topic such as work-life balance, how to write a business plan, and how to build a forms library.
Carolyn’s blog is currently undergoing a major redesign, and will be relaunched in March. At Clio we truly believe in the value MyShingle delivers to solos and small firms, and will sponsoring Carolyn’s blog to allow her to put even more time into writing. I came away excited about what we can do together, and again, the meeting was the result of just bringing a laptop and a Twitter account to a big convention like LegalTech New York.
