Unless you’ve been going out of your way to avoid the news lately, you have probably seen that Venezuela has elected Socialist Hugo Chavez as President, and that he is going about the business of nationalizing all kinds of private property.

So what does this have to do with your law firm?  Well, it demonstrates that history really does repeat itself.  Ayn Rand wrote Atlas Shrugged back in 1957.  Anyone who has read it, knows pretty much exactly what’s ahead for the poor souls in Venezuela.

Similarly, there are all kinds of historical reference points for predicting what is going to happen in a law firm.  Do you know what they are for yours?  I encourage all my Rainmaking Clients – and everyone who reads my blog to study their history in order to be prepared to repeat only the best parts of it and avoid the rest!
