Hi! I’m Allison. I’m a lawyer, author and President of Legal Ease Consulting, Inc. I help lawyersimprove their office functions, productivity and billing and work with them on marketing andbusiness development to attract the kinds of clients they want. These are 5 of my mostindispensable “tools” that I carry with me every day.
Smart phone – Droid Razr MaxxI’m on the go a lot, so I’m often checking my calendar, emails and socialmedia from my smartphone – not to mention taking client calls. Andalthough it might not be the best camera out there, it still is a camera inmy pocket, and it takes pretty good photos – like this one.
CuriosityThere’s always something new tolearn and do!
An Open MindI like to be open to whateversurprises might come my way,and try not to approachthings with a preconceivednotion of what they might –or “should” be.I also don’t believe in “bestpractices” and try not toblindly accept conventionalwisdom.
Evernote + Lists…to keep track of all of the greatideas and inspiration that resultfrom being curious and having anopen mind…and all of the things Ihave to do on a daily basis!
Whether RSS feeds, feeds from social mediasites like Twitter, Facebook or Google+, I relyon my feeds for interesting links, articles toshare and inspiration (which I’d like to say Icarry, but it doesn’t always come withouthelp)News Feeds
