  • My experience with Velocity Work has been exceptional. I honestly value their ability to view the personal and the business side of my practice. What I value most is how they take the time to truly understand you and your business. Finally, their approach of ensuring that you are as organized as humanly possible has changed not only how I go about my day/week/month in my firm but also in my personal life. Velocity Work is truly a game changer and exactly what I was looking for.”

WHO CAN YOU RELATE TO MOST?

DEREK
Lifting a firm off the ground

Congrats on starting your own firm! We know how chaotic it can all feel. Many true solos use Mastery Group to ensure they stay out of their own way when trying to go from zero to one. The more dialed in you are, the smoother and faster it will go.

REYNA
Growing into a small firm

The path from solo to small firm can mean more bandwidth, but it can also start to feel like the wheels are coming off. Mastery Group is perfect to help you grow the firm on your terms by mastering how you operate, and ensure the culture of your firm is not only results-oriented in theory but in practice.

MICHAEL
Scaling up the firm

You have some stability and a team. As the owner, it’s imperative that you’re spending a solid portion of each week focused ON the business and in a very strategic way. Left to our own, it’s easy to stay busy but not truly productive. Mastery Group will require you get clear about what you want and line things up to make it happen.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY

  • Mastery Group helped me gain control over my schedule by putting time into planning up-front. Scheduling your activities and requiring yourself to do things sequentially is a superpower. When you spend more time on the process, researching, and outlining, the actual tasks go by very quickly. I’ve seen so many projects go from idea to completion because of this program.”

-Joey Vitale
Indie Law

  • Velocity Work's process has changed the way I look at everything. I've honed in on results (not just tasks), so I know exactly what to do, how to best approach the project, and how to stay accountable to myself. With Melissa's personal and group guidance, I've made major improvements in how I look at and value my time so I can be accountable to honoring my firm's core values”  

- Claudia Revermann
Revermann Law

  • I can try a case. I don't need a class on that. But what I didn’t know was how to work ON your business and not IN your business. I had no clue how to do that or how to start. Now, I have a vision of what I want this to become. And we're getting there.”

Mastery Group isn't for everyone.

Building habits and developing skill sets to become the kind of owner you need to be in order to build the firm you want to build requires hard work, time, dedication, patience, and consistency. Overnight mastery doesn’t exist.

Inside the Mastery Group membership we provide the framework, resources, coaching, accountability, and support you need to make it happen.

But you have to be committed to doing the work.

About Your Coach

Melissa Shanahan founded Velocity Work after several years at a consulting firm focused on the growth of private practices all across the U.S. After coaching over 350 doctors, dentists, and lawyers - she chose to narrow her services to attorneys only and started Velocity Work.

 “Attorneys who go out on their own are my favorite people.  They’ worked so hard to become a lawyer, AND they have the guts to start their own firm even though they don’t receive training on how to build a business! 

That takes guts. So yeah, they’re my favorite people. And Velocity Work is committed to serving these extraordinary humans to build a firm they are proud of and a life that they love.”

The host of the Velocity Work podcast and an extremely effective coach for attorneys running their own firms, Melissa brings her
A-game to everything she does. Her energy is infectious and the material she’s teaching will forever change how you think. 

From mindset, to vision, to productivity, to tracking firm data, Velocity Work has helped hundreds of attorneys grow their firm on their terms.

  • For months and months, I kept pushing off my goal of implementing systems and software to organize my firm's back office. After working with Velocity Work just one month...mission accomplished! The journey was fun and invigorating thanks to the accountability and Melissa's persistent yet nurturing coaching and encouragement. Now, I am on to an even loftier goal and in light of last month's result, I have no doubt I can tackle this bigger challenge.
