I am enjoying the opportunity to write posts as a guest columnist for Solo Practice University. Solo Practice University is the brainchild of Susan Cartier Liebel who built the site to educate solo practitioners and allow them to connect and network with one another. The courses are varied and include instructors that are at the top of their legal practice areas nationally.

Robert Ambrogi’s Law Sites Blog had a playful post on NotifyWorks this week called Tickle Your Clients from the Cloud with NotifyWorks. Bob’s site is an ABA Blawg 100 honoree and well worth reading on a regular basis if you’re interested in the new and intriguing legal related sites on the Web. Bob is one of the most prolific legal bloggers so it’s really nice that he took the time to write about us.
Bob had this to say about NotifyWorks,
Elephants never forget. Unfortunately, attorneys and clients sometimes do. Consider the new web service NotifyWorks a virtual elephant for the law office. It remembers to remind your clients of important events that they otherwise might miss.
A virtual elephant for the law office? We might steal that one!
The Des Moines Business Record recently featured NotifyWorks as one of four startups to watch. The other three startups included:
- Locusic (Local music streaming service founded by Jake Kerber)
- eDossea (Internet based portal for dentists founded by Shawn Harrington)
- Appcore (Cloud computing for telephone companies founded by Brian Donaghy)
Check out the article here.
Brian Hemesath, co-founder and software developer of NotifyWorks appeared on Episode 56 of PrairieCast to discuss his startup companies and the lessons learned while bootstrapping his businesses. A serial entrepreneur, Brian not only owns a part of several businesses now, but has already been on the exit side as he sold one of his businesses a few years ago.
Brian also presented at the BIZ luncheon this week as well to discuss bootstrapping and entrepreneurship. Subtitled “The Non-fundraising Path,” Brian shared his experiences on key components to start-up success beyond, raising capital. These components included: the best reason to start a business (hint: it’s not to get rich), choosing the right partner, the best way to network for business and community growth and many more.

Silicon Prairie News featured NotifyWorks in an article entitled, “With automated email, NotifyWorks hopes to keep deadlines in mind.” The article is a follow up to my appearance on PrairieCast on August 16th.
