Membership Benefits

📆 Annual + Quarterly Planning Retreats

At the turn of every quarter, Melissa hosts virtual, 1-day business planning retreats where you’ll complete a comprehensive evaluation of your previous 90 days and design an intentional plan for the next 90 days.

You’ll walk away with goals, rocks, and remarkable clarity – including our custom digital workbooks (that members love to print out and keep top of mind in their firm). 

☎️ Quarterly Office Hours

Meticulously timed to follow each of our strategic planning retreats, this one-on-one assistance helps you finalize your firm’s 90-day plan. 

Utilize this opportunity to begin each quarter prepared and poised for success.

☕️ Weekly Specialist Coaching Calls

These hour-long, interactive, group coaching calls focus on various areas related to barriers that you run into as you’re working the plans you made. 

Topic areas include (but are not limited to): Weekly + Monthly Calendar Planning, Systems, People Management, Numbers + Reporting, Accountability (on your progress), Mindset, etc. 

✅ Monday Map Power Hour

This facilitated weekly virtual session guides you through the Monday Map process that Velocity Work is known for. During Power Hour, you’ll work independently to execute on your Monday Map for the week ahead. We ensure you stay on track.

You will never regret showing up for the Monday Map Power Hour.

🎉 Two In-Person Events

Included in your membership is an invitation to attend two member-only, in-person workshops each year in Golden, Colorado (with four dates to choose from to account for busy schedules).

These events are an opportunity to meet fellow Velocity Work members – law firm owners you share a lot in common with – and to get targeted, personalized advice from our team.

🤝 1:1 Workshop(s) with Melissa

(Value of $4000, discounted to $2500 per workshop.)

Your membership includes the opportunity to schedule a private 1:1 workshop with Melissa. This is not available to the public – and it’s available to you at a discounted rate.

This is a 6-hour virtual workshop entirely focused on you – your numbers, your firm, – whatever you’d like to focus on.

📂 On-Demand Classes + Workshops

Inside the private member area, you will have access to all previous workshops and coaching calls – and their accompanying resources.

Velocity Work’s vault of content – now five years old and growing – is accessible to you for the entirety of your membership.

🛠️ The Toolkit

Also in our private member area, this collection of resources is homebase for all the templates and processes that Velocity Work recommends that members integrate into their firms and workflow.

Velocity Work’s Basic Tracking Template, Firm Financial Organizer, and Goal Calculator for practices with payment plans are a few member favorites.

❤️ Engaged Community

The magic of this intimate community is unmatched, and that has everything to do with the incredible law firm owners who are members of this program. 

We’ve grown slowly with intention to cultivate a culture of accountability, self development, and putting in the work that moves the needle for our member’s firms.

🎁 Bonus Workshops

We’ve been known to host bonus workshops for our members as requests and great ideas arise inside the community. 

When you attend these, expect to walk away with actionable intelligence to immediately implement in your firm. Topics vary, covering critical areas of positioning your business and your mind for growth.
