I used to work for a large insurance defense firm. That means I worked for an insurance company, defending personal injury claims. That's the opposite of what I do now. While my clients were technically the policy holders of the insurance company, my employer was the insurance company. Therefore, I had very little influence (basically none) about how the insurance company conducted business, how they advertised, the way they handled claims, etc. I was a tiny fish in a very big ocean. Those kinds of decisions were made in ivory towers at the corporate level.
After working for 13 years for the insurance companies, I decided it was time to open my own practice. It was something I really had been wanting to do for about 4 or 5 years before actually "jumping ship." There was an entrepreneurial bug in me that had been dormant for years but finally revealed itself to me. I must admit, making the transition was a very scary event, and opening a law practice just before the Great Recession hit was not fun.
In any event, one of the things that I really enjoy about my law office is the ability to have total control about my marketing, my message, how I communicate with clients, the ability to educate...basically the ability to call all the shots. Unlike my former law office, now I have total control over how I do things. While there are certainly burdens associated with being ultimately responsible for everything, there are definite benefits to "being your own boss."
One of the things I most enjoy is the marketing of my law office. For example, this website is managed by me, and pretty much all the content on the website was authored by me. This video above is no exception. Like I said, I really enjoy marketing so I had a lot of fun making this "animated" short promotional video for my personal injury practice. I hope you enjoy it too. It's the story of Frank.
