Dana Heitz and Zara Watkins join host Michael Meyer to talk about Deliberate Solos, the monthly networking group they organize for solo attorneys and the professionals who assist them. They discuss how the group’s three pillars, networking node, business development incubator, and “pop-up law firm”, work together to support solo attorneys’ practices and overcome the challenges they face.
Networking is a crucial part of any business development toolkits. A graphic designer I met through my own networking told me about the Women’s Empowerment Networking Group founded and run by Janice Roven and Davida Perry, and I was struck by the founding story of the all women group. Janice and Davida generously offered to come on the show to discuss their reasons for starting the group, the value of being at its center, the logistical challenges and a bit about diversity.
