Important Announcement, SPU Classes in January…and Much More


We want to give you a heads up! Within the next week or so Solo Practice University will not only be upgraded and sporting a new hairdo, we’ll also be introducing a new tuition structure.  If you’ve been considering enrolling, you may want to lock in the current tuition today.  With more than 700 individual classes and many more to come, now might be the perfect time to join us on the inside while getting the benefit of locked-for-life tuition at our current pricing!

Now on to the January recap!

All across the United States it seems January showcased historic snowfalls and arctic cold.  Being housebound, it was (and is) a great time for settling in with a warm and cozy laptop and catching up on the latest SPU classes and blog posts:

The audio series is simply called – you guessed it -  ‘What’s New?’ We’ll feature a new guest lecture approximately every other Tuesday.  We hope you benefit from them and share the links with others!

First up was talented smart marketer, Mark Merenda with his audio lecture on Smart Marketing for your law firm  in 2011.
