The power of disconnecting

Between my podcast sabbatical and an unplugged trip to Bermuda last week (phone was shut off), I already feel lighter and my creative juices are starting to flow again.               I’m curious… When was the last time you completely unplugged or gave yourself a …

What it’s really like to start a business

Everyone said I was crazy when I walked away from my firm and started my own company in late 2014. And, I probably was… but I’ve not once regretted my decision. Over the past two years, I’ve covered all kinds of topics on my Hustle & Flow podcast, but I’ve …

What a week!

Last week was amazing! Over 600 attorneys participated in the annual Get It Done Challenge – a week dedicated to spring cleaning our crazy to-do lists and getting a reset for the second quarter. There were so many breakthroughs and success stories from last week that I wanted to make …

A lesson I wish I’d learned much earlier

Here’s something you may not know about me… I used to be a super reactive hothead. Even when I managed my emotions in front of others, it still created needless internal drama and turmoil for me. It wasn’t until my breakdown (aka spiritual awakening), as Brene Brown would say, that …

It used to be discussed behind closed doors of women’s initiative circles and organizations. Examples of male partners who wouldn’t go out with female associates alone. It was a rare story – and often one from many years before – but everyone was shocked when it was shared. Which is …

Struggle capturing billable hours?

It’s the last week of January, so you know what that means… Your time is due! If you’ve got it all in and you’re feeling great about your numbers, way to start the year off strong. If you’re dropping your head or outright cussing me, you probably fall into one …
