Liz Smith’s hometown of Juneau, Alaska is remote. But NLBM helped Liz build her hybrid practice into one of the most sought after in the area.
Liz Smith began her career working for the State of Alaska, with grand hopes of being a longstanding public defender. Those hopes ended five years later, leaving her exhausted and needing a career change. She took a job as a health coach, while contemplating a private practice in the remote part of Alaska she lives in.
Seeing the need in her city of Juneau, Alaska, for trusted estate planners and recognizing her own need for training, guidance, and help to build her practice, led Liz to find NLBM in 2019. She enrolled quickly, encouraged by both the program and the leadership of NLBM’s Founder, Ali Katz.
Liz began to build her practice, first in Juneau, then traveling to the neighboring towns and communities to serve a larger clientele base. Best of all, she was building the practice she wanted and using her time the way she knew was most beneficial to her clients and those she loved most.
Liz has continued to grow her practice, expanding to three staff members and seeing typically 8 -12 clients a month, at an average of $3500 each. Her monthly income is typically $33,000 to $43,000. Incredible for a former public defender in one of the most remote parts of the world.
