I've lived in New Orleans almost my whole life. I was born here. I went to college and law school here. Got married here, and raised three kids here.
I will surely die here. And when I do it will be with a broad smile on my face because this is the best city in the world to live in.
In this free "course," I've compiled my best tips for visiting the city, whether it's your first time or your thirteenth time.
Take these recommendations more as a brainstorming worksheet than a "guide" to slavishly follow. New Orleans is all about improvising (which is why jazz music was born here and continues to flourish). So improvise and enjoy the sights, sounds, and the serendipity.
Ernie learned the secret to working smarter (not harder) right out of law school. In 2000, Ernie discovered the power of creating a paperless practice, which was dismissed as impossible by most lawyers.
Two years later, he was the 5th lawyer to create a weblog, which led him to discover the power of online marketing before 99% of attorneys even imagined they might be able to get clients via a website.
For the past decade, he's been dedicated to teaching solo and small firm lawyers how to harness the power of systems, technology, and psychology to transform their practices in mind-boggling ways.
