How Gina is following her true calling…

Some WILL members have shown me that their “WILL work” is about more than finding a new job. It’s about becoming. Becoming your true self, shedding societal expectations of who you are supposed to be and what you are supposed to do.It can lead to stripping away the...

The three words everyone longs to hear

The three words everyone longs to hear

What are the three words everyone longs to hear? "I love you." AND "You are right." This is human nature. Jen Sincero speaks about this in her new book, Badass Habits.  It got me wondering… Is this a reason why leaving (big) law is so hard?  On some level, are you...

From grief to intentions – setting the new year in motion

Is it time to tend your garden?

Is it time to tend your garden?

I felt his pain…

Recently, we got a puppy and met up with a couple who got one from the same litter.  As we chatted, with masks on, I got this feeling that the woman might be a lawyer.   The conversation turned to what we did for work and I shared about WILL.  The wife got a funny...
