Every woman attorney I know who has read Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, sees herself.
In the Oprah – Michelle Obama interview, they discussed this section…
“I hated being a lawyer. I wanted a life, basically. I wanted to feel whole.”
Our former fabulous FLOTUS goes onto say…
“It took losses in my life to make me think, ‘Have you ever stopped to think who you wanted to be?’ I had not.”
A 9th year I spoke with embodied this. She said, “Up through law school, I just checked things off. Now I want to formulate a goal, beyond just getting out. Something that will allow me not to be a servant. Where I am balanced and have the energy for my life.”

How good would it feel to regain control of your time, career and life?
Many attorneys who feel stuck and not happy also think, “I’m smart and capable and should be able to figure this out on my own.” Of course, you can.
Only… if you want to make it easier, do it more quickly and have more fun… you could join WILL. 😊
You are not alone. You will be with other women going through the same thing. Giving and receiving support, love, and encouragement both from me and the other WILL members.
Here’s what WILL members said at the end of the 2018 Sprint…
The support and accountability from others have been wonderful! Law firms can be such myopic places to work, and it’s been nice to hear from people outside the organization and to be honest.

It’s rare to have this kind of dynamic, especially in the legal profession. It’s been interesting learning about different experiences everyone has had, and also the pointers and the support that people give. It’s been really helpful.

I don’t feel like I’m honest with most people in my life, especially people I work with. I loved having this dedicated group of people that were professional cheerleaders for me, but they were also personal. Everybody wants the same thing for themselves. That’s rare to get that in a group of people in your life.
