Through each lesson, you will gain the experience needed to confidently walk your clients through each of the important elements of an estate plan that is much more than a stack of documents, by doing it for yourself first.
Module 6: Understand the Basics of Serving Business Owners - the NLBM WayIn this module, you’ll learn the steps to shift from a traditional "business law" practice to counseling business owners the NLBM way. We’ll cover the big picture of what makes you different as a Strategic Business Counselor, how to counsel your clients to have the necessary business succession and transition conversations by considering all stakeholders, including shareholders, partners, employees, and even clients or customers.

Just like on the estate planning side, and the way you become congruent by starting with your own plan, on the business planning side, you become congruent by getting your own legal, financial, and tax systems in place for your own business. Here, we’ll guide you to see the legal, insurance, financial, and tax holes in your business, and then fill them.
Module 10: Prepare For and Find Your First Two Practice ClientsIn this module, you’re going to prepare for your practice clients by writing your new firm story, your new bio, identifying who you serve and where to find them! Your new story will illustrate not only what you do, but also why the traditional model of estate planning is broken and how the ways you practice will result in a dramatically different outcome for your clients (in short, that they’ll have a plan that actually works when their loved ones need it most). By the end of this module, you should be ready for the next steps of building your prospect list and engaging your first two practice clients.
Module 11: How to Handle Intake of New ProspectsIn this module, we’re going to begin to teach you how to convert your prospects into clients who are thrilled to pay you premium fees, and it all starts with how you handle intake. We give you phone scripts to create a strong intake process, and teach you how to get curious with your prospects so you only meet with people ready to do the right thing for the people they love — and how to answer that pesky question “how much does a will cost” so you can shift prospects from thinking about cost to considering the outcome they really want.
Module 12: Prepare for Client EngagementIn this module, you will receive literally everything you need to get hired every time by every person you sit down with who needs your services. Exciting right? You will also learn how to prepare the meeting folder you’ll take into all of your initial meetings so you are ready to get hired and paid. Finally, you’ll learn how to design your actual office, virtual or in-person, so your clients have a wow experience, plus you’ll learn how and why to automate your client engagement process and other workflow systems so a ball never gets dropped.
Module 13: Practice & Effectively Execute Your Initial Client MeetingsIn this module, you will learn to educate, inspire, and empower your prospects to hire you, and pay you for a great service that will make a difference in the lives of their families, (and their business if you’re in the upgraded business program). It’s time to learn to master the Family Wealth Planning Session and, if you are serving business owners, the LIFT Business Breakthrough Session so that no potential client is ever lost.
Module 14: Create the Right Practice Model for Your Life and Law PracticeIn this module, explore the ideal practice model for you, so you know exactly where you are going, and can get there with as little worry or doubt as possible. You will clarify how many clients you can serve and how many prospects you can take through your initial meeting process per month, depending on your team capacity, your time availability, and your technology setup. You will also learn how you can step-by-step increase your capacity over time, if you desire, with strategic investing in your practice until you get to your ideal practice model. You’ll also learn how you can fund and grow your business in a positive way so you can build the law practice model of your dreams.
Module 15: Marketing FundamentalsIn this module, we’ll explore how to use no-cost marketing to get your next 5 clients. You’ll learn how to network so it works, generate curiosity in your services, follow up, and add value to other professionals you network with so they refer clients to you in the right way to avoid wasting your time, or theirs.
Before joining NLBM . . . I didn’t know how to market, and I didn’t have the systems needed to truly succeed. So I went through NLBM training, and I saw that the training works, the systems work, and the people I meet with always become clients. Within my first month of practicing “next-level estate planning" I started bringing in 2-3 clients a month. The amazing guidance and coaching from NLBM is what allowed me to have multiple 5-figure months. I’m now on a solid path toward having a million dollar law practice.
