Working Smarter 2.0

You want to work less. But you need to earn more. 

And you want to have more time for your family, hobbies, and the other stuff that makes life worth living. 

Are these things incompatible? It might seem so.

But the fact is they're not incompatible. If you learn to work smarter, that is. So what exactly does "working smarter" involve? 

Well, here's what it does NOT involve...

  • It does NOT involve chasing shiny tech objects. 
  • It does NOT involve experimenting with "productivity hacks." 
  • And it does NOT involve making a bunch of trivial changes.

Look, here's the brutal truth... 

You need to make some radical changes if you want a financially rewarding practice that also provides massive freedom.

Not everyone can do this. That's the harsh truth.

That's why many lawyers continue to struggle —even though they're working really hard. Many simply don't want to change how they run their practices.

But, maybe you're different. And if so...

You'll be interested in the Working Smarter course.

This course tells you exactly what changes to make (yes, many involve technology). 

Most importantly, you'll learn how to make the changes in a sensible way. So you can start to create the practice you want and deserve.

The lessons have been carefully designed to help you make key improvements quickly and effectively (without stress). 

There are 30 videos that are no more than a few minutes long. The video lessons will take less than 75 minutes (TOTAL!) to watch.

There are bonus resources as well. Every resource in the course is designed to give you specific, actionable guidance for transforming your practice, step-by-step.

Best of all?

You can sign up with no risk because the course comes with a no-questions-asked 30-day Full-Money-Back Guarantee.

So, here's the bottom line...

If you want a thriving practice that also allows you to enjoy more time away from work (enjoying life and goofing off more if you want to), this is the program for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's included in the course?

    There are 56 lessons including the bonus lessons; most of the lessons are short videos. The total time to watch the videos is 75 minutes. And you'll also receive lessons via email to make it easier to absorb the content and reinforce key principles. Plus you can schedule a free call to talk with Ernie about whatever you want.

  • Does it matter what technology I use?

    No, it doesn't matter what computer or smartphone you use. Whatever tech/software recommendations are made, they are cross-platform tools/apps (or are cloud-based) so it doesn't matter what devices you're using.

  • How long will it take to complete the course?

    You can watch the video lessons in 75 minutes. The text lessons might take an extra 30 minutes. The bonus materials (which are optional) might take an additional hour. So, no more than 3 hours for everything.

  • How does this relate to your other programs?

    This course is foundational and essential. Therefore, you should sign up for this course before signing up for any other courses or programs that I offer.

  • How tech savvy do I need to be?

    You don't need to be tech-savvy. This course is designed to help you better leverage your knowledge by understanding which levers to push and how to push them. Technology is only one of the levers, and not the most important one.

  • How long will I have access to the course?

    Forever. As long as you want to have access is how long you will have access.

  • Will I be able to get personal guidance?
