A neighbour said to me that you knew when a business was successful as it was like hanging onto the tail of a tiger! This made me smile and think of our experience with Newtons Solicitors, where the business has snowballed since the first month.
We were the second law firm in Harrogate to achieve the Law Society’s “Conveyancing Quality Standard” and have also achieved the Law Society Practice Management Standard “Lexcel”.
We have had local and national PR and were named as one of the top 50 most exciting new businesses in the country by Real Business magazine in association with Red Bull.
This is a far cry from when I started the business from home in June 2009, sat on my own with a laptop thinking “Gosh this is exciting” but at the same time thinking “Crikey what have I done!”
If you had said then what we could achieve in 3 years I would have told you it was fantasyland. Now I’m asking where is fantasyland, because that is where we are going!
