Are you curious…?

One of my interests is art. I love going to museums. This photo is from earlier in the summer while at MassMOCA. I saw a Sol LeWitt painting in WILL colors! My son took a picture of me (but I thought he was taking selfies)! What are some of your interests? If you...

Birthplace of WILL

Two years ago while on vacation in Cape Cod, the idea for WILL woke me up. The idea nudged me awake at 5:30 am. I rolled out of bed. Wrote feverishly. The words “women interested in leaving law…WILL” flowed out. I wanted to share joy and possibility with women...

Drum Roll Please…

We have some clear results from the WILL Survey as to the barriers that keep you from leaving big law or making a career change. Top 5 (in order): Worry about the money (84%) Not knowing what else I could do (64%) Time to make it happen (56%) Feel l like a failure if...

Ambivalent no longer!

I remember being acutely ambivalent when I graduated from college and had my first job offer. I could become the Assistant to the Executive Director/Office Manager at a small non-profit, or keep looking. I was up in Ithaca, NY with my family, visiting cousins. I...

The Antidote to Shame

No one wants to talk about shame. It’s unpleasant. The mess in the corner we try to ignore. I recommend Brene Brown’s two TED Talks to all my clients. If you haven’t watched them, find links below. She shares how shame thrives in the Petri dish of...

Malcolm Gladwell’s Rule of Living: Pull the Goalie

My wife Melissa and I were in the car driving to the North Fork of Long Island for the weekend while the kids are at camp. I asked Melissa if she had any good podcasts to listen to. She told me about Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History and the episode, Pull the...

Won’t you be my neighbor?

Last weekend I saw the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Did you grow up watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood? If so, you will love the movie. I was reminded of sitting cross legged in front of the TV, watching the trolley go into the Land of Make Believe, and the...

Her Hair Was Falling Out.

At a recent WILL Meetup, the women spoke about the physical toll of the stress. A woman in her late 20s told us her hair falling out. Someone else had heart palpitations. Another client had migraines. None of them had had a good night's sleep in years. Constant worry...

Two Year Sprint

For the past two years, building WILL has been my primary creative and business focus. I've been on a mission to help women who struggle to leave (big) law, believe its possible, discover new appealing possibilities and take action! After the the first pilot group...

Amy Schumer and Oprah are both… (you’ll be surprised!)

On Super Soul Sunday Amy Schumer and Oprah talked about Amy's new movie "I Feel Pretty". Critics be damned... I want to go see it! The message is... Change your thoughts then your > feelings > actions> RESULTS change as well. Here's how I can help you get through...

Pull Back the Curtain

Recently I took a podcasting class at the Made in NY Media Center in Brooklyn, an incubator that focuses on storytelling across every medium. I often ask my clients (and myself) to pay attention to our internal stories. What story AM I telling myself? What other story...

Last night I met Elizabeth Gilbert…

When I saw Elizabeth Gilbert was speaking in NJ… I went online and discovered “VIP Meet and Greet” tickets available, and for only $40 more! Heck, yeah! Liz Gilbert is high on the list of people I admire. Her core message resonates for me and thousands of others. It...
