I am looking for the most motivated lawyer who reads my blog. If you are that person, I will teach you and coach you for six months next year and not charge you anything. If you have an equally motivated lawyer in your firm, or in your home town, I will coach both of you.

Here is what you need to do: Answer these questions and email your answer to

  2. What are your career/client development goals?
  3. What, if anything is holding you back from achieving those goals?

  5. Describe your target market potential clients.
  6. If I were a potential client, why should I hire you?
  7. What do you see as the value of working with Cordell?

  9. Describe an accomplishment in your life that you had a burning desire to achieve and the steps you took to achieve it.
