This article is very skewed. They are talking about long term Big Law lawyers who decide to go solo in complex litigation. It's like taking someone who is used to eating in five star gourmet restaurants and throwing them in a commune to first grow their own vegetables and milk the cow. Some can and want to do it and succeed very nicely. But the kid who grows up on the commune "gets it" from the beginning, learns how to be productive and efficient and reap the rewards of his labor. Yes, running your own law practice is running a business. There is no dispute about this whatsoever. You have to be a business person and love being a business person, too. Or you get help to shore up those areas you feel are more challenging or too time-consuming or you simply dislike. You evolve in your business as required. Solo doesn't mean going it alone. It means being 'in charge' of a crew of one or many.
