The women I speak with often went into law for a number of reasons. The top ones I hear are…
- To do good in the world and help people.
- Not sure what else they wanted to do.
- A childhood idea they would be a lawyer, often fueled by TV and To Kill a Mockingbird.
When listening to them now, I hear this:
- I didn’t go into this to make banks and companies even richer
- I feel unfulfilled
- I need time for my life
- Existing is not the same as living.
- I’ve been having crippling anxiety.
You are not alone. If you want to…
Take control of your time, energy and contributions from work that do not represent your values…
Begin on a path to truly making an impact in the world…
Create boundaries so you can focus on your mental health, well-being and happiness!
I work with clients all over the country. As C.D. in San Francisco said…
“I am open to leaving big law now and I have a vision for what that might look like. One of my big concerns would be waking up 10 years from now. I’d be unhappy if I was I’m still doing this job. I don’t want to be doing it just because of money or prestige.
This has given me the vision that I can make this change a reality. I believe that changing could bring me happiness.”
