Episode Notes

I think the overarching theme of my new solo practice and the way that I’m able to sleep at night is I’ve tried very hard to keep things simple. I can always add later.—Katie Floyd

During this week’s podcast, Aaron and Sam discuss why sometimes lawyers should shorten written content, and Sam talks with Katie Floyd, co-host of the Mac Power Users podcast, about setting up her solo practice and tips for Mac and iOS users.

After nearly 10 years of working in larger firms, Katie Floyd fulfilled a life-long dream and opened a solo practice with the goal of providing personal and practical solutions to client problems. She believes that technology is the great equalizer for the small firm and solo practitioner. She is nationally recognized for helping individuals and small businesses make the most out of their technology and speaks regularly on the use of technology and the practice of law for the American Bar Association and others. She is also the co-host of the Mac Power Users podcast, which provides tips and tricks for both Mac and iOS users.
