By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

Listen to the Episode Below: A team that works like a well-oiled machine is a key element to doubling the value of your business. But how do you keep a tight rein with today’s distributed workforce? And do “tight reins” work with more Millennials entering the landscape? On this week’s episode, Sophie Wade, a Future of Work authority, points out the old ways of “being boss” that no longer work, and how to bring in fresh thinking around frameworks and systems to maintain a cohesive team.

Flying solo doesn’t have to mean going it alone.

I’m Nina Kaufman.

I know first-hand that running a knowledge-based service business has unique challenges. It’s so much easier when you have an advocate in your corner. Over the past 25 years, I’ve worked with thousands of New York business professionals who want a legal advisor to guide and support them as they navigate the business world.

With wide-ranging experience as a business attorney, strategist, and media authority, I bring the added power of a business lens to the legal issues my clients are facing.

And because I’ve been a business owner myself, I’ve lived through the soaring highs and devastating lows – like when my first law firm failed. So I understand what’s involved to serve great clients, detect business risks early and build a true legacy.

I can’t get those 12 years back. That’s why I have made it my mission to ensure that business professionals like you can become wise and discerning leaders, build a solid business, and live your best life.
