Here are a few ideas for keeping your health care costs down. 
Sometimes what stops a lawyer (new or old) from starting a solo practice is not fear about knowing the law or finding mentors. It's about affording to go into practice. Health insurance is a big part of the 'affordability' question. It is for all self-employed people. It is for me, too.

It is definitely a factor in leadership.
We hide our leadership abilities ‘under a bushel basket’ because we may feel have no concrete evidence to showcase our leadership skills. We fail to adequately value our own innate talents because we have been out of the legal 'game' for a long while. So, how do you find your competencies? This post will help you to do just that.

"Facebook is already well on its way to becoming a global financial institution. Last summer, Financial Times discovered that Facebook is close to receiving approval from the Central Bank of Ireland to become an electronic money institution throughout Europe. This would allow users the ability to store money with the social network, transfer money to others, or buy items online.

Long term, Facebook payments has the power to completely destroy Western Union and Money Gram (good riddance) and massively benefit millions of people in the developing world with billions of dollars more freely flowing into those countries. Facebook is in a position to control the lion’s share of remittances sent globally by offering below market-rate transfers and the best experience on mobile."

This is why #lawyers need to be empowered to become self-employed:

"Today, only a quarter of the world’s workers are on permanent contracts. The rest are either unpaid at home, self-employed, working informally or employed on a temporary contract."
According to a report from the International Labour Organization (ILO), a global trend towards insecure employment has taken hold since the onset of the financial crisis. Today, only a quarter of the world's workers are on permanent contracts. The rest are either unpaid at home, self-employed, working informally or employed on a [...]

I'd love to know your thoughts!
Hypercapitalism is a term used by Marxist scholars, in their continuing critique of political economy, to depict a relatively new form of capitalistic social organization marked by the speed and intensity of global flows that include exchange of both material and immaterial goods, people, and information. Will lawyers become hypercapitalists in order to compete in the 21st Century?
