Top 3 Legal Tips for a Small Business from a Formal Legal Assistant

After I graduated college, my first job was a legal assistant/receptionist at a Dallas law firm, specializing in small business. As the firm grew in size, so did my role and responsibilities. Eventually becoming senior legal assistant, I oversaw all paralegal and legal assistant work, deadlines, and drafts. I felt like I was an attorney (without the ethical responsibility riding in my shoulders) with the workload, drafting, courthouse filing, and stress. Ahh! Eventually I moved on, but not before learning a heck of a lot about the legality of small businesses. So I wanted to share the top 3 things I learned and observed all my years in the legal world and with my own small business.

How I Organize My Week to be Successful

Pink Champagne Paper Wedding Invitations
For years I thought I was organized. I have always been Type A – super organized, clean freak, and list maker. Even as young as elementary school, I would clean my room every night before bed without being told and make a list of what outfit I would wear on each day of the week. Yup… that was me.

So when I transitioned from student to employee to business owner, I still had the same method of organization and I thought I would have it all under control. HA! Joke was on me.

Organization is a whole new breed when you own a business. You do it all: Bookkeeping, marketing, accounting, business development, emails, and even janitorial…just to name a few. I wore so. many. hats. and had so many balls in the air, I would look at my never-ending to-do list and almost get a panic attack (and I don’t use the term panic attack lightly).

It took me years after starting my business to learn a new way of organization. Now I not only schedule my time weekly but also daily and even hourly. It may seem like a lot of structure at first, but trust me, it makes #girlboss life SO much more manageable.

So I want to share with you my schedule and how exactly I organize my time to hopefully inspire and help you! In a nutshell, Mondays and Wednesdays are design days, Tuesdays and Thursdays are production days, and Fridays are administrative days.
