Is it time to tend your garden?

Is it time to tend your garden?

Have you ever heard the term “overwinter”? I hadn’t.  It’s a gardening term I was not familiar with until recently when in a group chat, a WILL Member used this term. “What’s overwintering?” I asked. As a few of the gardeners chimed in. Overwintering is “a wonderful...

The future you want comes from what you create today

The future you want comes from what you create today

Look around your home or apartment. Remember the day you moved in? The bare walls? The flat white paint job? Everything you have right now you created yesterday. Your present is a reflection of the time, energy and decisions you made in the past. If you want to create...

Jenny’s Story [+ Invitation to Special Astrological Event]

Jenny’s Story [+ Invitation to Special Astrological Event]

In the fall of 2017, I offered WILL for the first time after the pilot group. I held a webinar and four people registered. I’ll admit that my heart sank when only two women showed up. Then it plunged further when one person dropped off. Only one remained. That person...

What we can do with $30/year. {NOT a Black Friday offer}

What we can do with $30/year. {NOT a Black Friday offer}

I bumped into a friend at the farmers market last weekend.  While we stood in line to stock up for Thanksgiving, he asked about my business.  As last week honored Women's Entrepreneurship Day, I shared how much I love being an entrepreneur, and had an epiphany that I...

I felt his pain…

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...

One thing you CAN do with a law degree…

One thing you CAN do with a law degree…

I shot this video the morning after learning of the Biden-Harris victory.  I stayed up way too late, cheering for our new President, Vice President-elect and watching SNL. I want to talk about our Madam Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for a moment. One of the...

No Feeling Is Final

No Feeling Is Final

This week on our WILL Community Call we talked about the only thing we can control… Ourselves. I’m not going to lie, on Tuesday my back was in spam (perhaps because I was holding my breath?). I took to bed with a heating pad, butter pecan ice cream and rewatched one...

Bring Your Best Self to the World

Bring Your Best Self to the World

I recorded a short video for you about two things I want to share with you as we approach this election. The first is why I do WILL. The second is what I hear from women lawyers as to why they do WILL. First, the reason I do WILL is that I feel truly called to do...

Hit The Road

Hit The Road

This week I was supposed to travel for a retreat with my mentor. Instead, she held it virtually from her apartment in Paris and I decided hit the road and use the time for a get-away.  So I rented a cottage by the sea and Zoomed in from Montauk.   When waffling...

How does big law make you feel?

How does big law make you feel?

Recently a WILL member said this… "Law firms train associates to feel small.  But rather than let them have the power and control, I NOW KNOW, that in fact, I am in control here." It took her awhile to arrive at this realization.  It’s hard to believe you are in...

The Harvard Business Review and I want you to take a vacation

The Harvard Business Review and I want you to take a vacation

I spoke with Sarah this week.  She lives in Seattle. One of the things she said she wanted was to take a vacation. "When’s the last time you took one?" I asked. She paused, eyes looking up and to the right... (thinking, thinking, thinking). "I can’t remember." Does...
