If  you’ve  been  an  attorney  for  2  or  20  years  and . . .

  • Deep in your heart you want to make a change.
  • You believe more meaningful work is possible. 
  • The stress, hours and demands are NOT aligned with the life you want to lead.

Wouldn’t it FEEL wonderful to…

  • Free yourself from work that drains your time, energy and soul?  

  • Enjoy time with family and friends without worry or anxiety?

  • Go to work with a smile on your face?

I, like a lot of other lawyers,
get stuck in my head and go down that
rabbit hole of despair, inaction and self-doubt.
WILL forces the time and investment
that otherwise isn’t going to happen.
– Jenny, Las Vegas


When we started, I had no framework for how to approach
the conundrum of what to do with my career.
Now I have a lot more confidence.
I’ve decided to leave my firm and I’m coming from
a place of clarity and belief in myself.
– Angela, San Francisco


I recommend WILL to people who like me can benefit
from a framework
for approaching the question of
what to do next.
When you pay for it,
you carve out the time to do the work.
– C.D., San Francisco


I hadn’t thought about my “inner critic”
and the harsh things I was saying to myself.
Now I monitor the voice that tells me
what I 'should' do as opposed to
what I WANT to do!
Karen, New York City


Before WILL I was thinking ‘What’s wrong with me?’,
but NOW I KNOW, it’s this job that's wrong for me.
– Gwen, Washington, DC
