//Grow and Better Your Small Law Firm with the Smokeball Back to Business Conference

Are you ready to learn how to revamp your small law firm? Our exclusive half-day Smokeball Back to Business Conference is approaching fast! On Wednesday, September 16 from 12:00 to 4:00 PM CDT, you can join our webinar to learn about marketing best practices for attorneys, tech tools that can make your work easier, and much more.

Last week, we introduced you to two Back to Business speakers, Ari Kaplan and Ernie Svenson. Today, we’ll tell you more about the other two speakers: Jeena Cho and Smokeball’s own Chelsey Lambert.

Better Lawyering Through Mindfulness – Jeena Cho

Jeena Cho coauthored, with Karen Gifford,  The Anxious Lawyer, a lawyer’s guide to using meditation to better their practice. She’s a partner at JC Law Group PC, where she practices with her husband and works with individuals with financial troubles. In addition to meditation and mindfulness, Jeena works with lawyers and law firms on stress management, work-life balance, career transitions, increasing productivity and overall wellness.

As lawyers, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the fast-paced work environment and forget to pause. If your mind is constantly going at 150 miles per hour, this is the session for you. Jeena will teach attendees how to cultivate mindfulness and explain how a meditation practice can help improve focus and productivity. Join us to learn how you can physically and mentally prepare to give clients your best work.
