Joy in the law

I used to hate my middle name. Growing up, many in my family called me Miss Joy, which just seemed wrong. Joy seemed too soft, too emotional, too feminine. I felt like a walking contradiction because I always saw myself as loud, stubborn, and a bit masculine. And those traits …

The topic everyone is talking about

I had no idea how many of you were interested in the topic of fixed fees! The first episode came out on July 10 (you can listen to it here) but I had so much to cover that I had to postpone the second part until this month. Little did …

Go-to resources for attorneys

I’m completely unplugged while vacationing in Banff (don’t worry, I scheduled this before I left), so there’s not a new podcast episode this week. BUT… I’ve still got you covered. To make it easier for you to find relevant resources on the topics you need, we’ve created the Hustle & …

How to unplug on vacation

Be honest… How often do you go on vacations where you completely unplug? If you’re like most attorneys, you might take trips and long weekends (for a comical yet accurate description of the difference between a trip and vacay, read this. But you probably never take a true vacation where …

Special treat

I’ve got a special treat for you on the Hustle & Flow podcast this week. Today, I’m interviewing Nicole Abboud. You’ve probably heard of her before as she’s the former host of the widely popular Gen Why Lawyer podcast and current host of the new hit Leaders Love Company. I’ve …

Does work-life balance even exist?

This might surprise you but I don’t believe in work-life balance… I know, I know. I lead a retreat called Life & Law in Balance! Everything I teach, even if it’s business development, is grounded in principles related to mindfulness and well-being. Have I had a change in heart? Nope, …

What’s next for you?

The most common question I get asked in my Legal Career Clarity course, and really in any program I lead, is this… “How do I know if I’m making the right decision?” Between our perfectionist tendencies and our fear of failure, the thought of making a bad decision can paralyze …

Building a 7-figure practice

Do you ever wish you could just practice law without having to deal with the business-side of things? I hear this from so many attorneys. But I don’t think attorneys really dislike business. They’re just not good at it. And lawyers don’t like not being good at things… The solution? …
