I’m obsessed…

I’m obsessed…

Like millions of others, I’m obsessed with Ted Lasso.(Spoilers ahead so if you haven’t finished Season 2, you’ve been duly warned!) I’m a little ashamed to admit how many times I’ve watched Season 1. Okay, at least four.  Some choice episodes may have been consumed...

It was robbing me of my life force

I got to meet Jenny for the first time last month. I was in California for work, friends, family and fun.  I was also taking some time just for me. On August 1st, we had a meet up at an outdoor café for WILL members and alumni. It was AMAZING to meet people in person,...

Three WILL success stories

Three WILL success stories

How your lawyer brain can help propel you forward

How your lawyer brain can help propel you forward

As a lawyer, you are probably well trained in “either/or” thinking.   You may think things like… ...I either make big law money, or I’ll earn nothing. ...I’m either a lawyer, or I don’t know what else I am. ...I either suck it up, or I’m a loser. I recently came...

There has NEVER been a better time

There has NEVER been a better time

There has never been a better time to leave (big) law! Seriously. As you know, some firms are requesting, or requiring people to come back into the office.  Many people I speak with do not want to go. Instead of going back into the office, where would you like to go?...

What are you investing in?

What are you investing in?

A WILL member I’ll call Samantha has been working with us for just a couple of months.  She gave her notice last week. She spent nine years practicing law, and nothing was changing. That is, except for her mental and physical health, and not for the better. She does...

What we can learn from the Law of Gestation

What we can learn from the Law of Gestation

Sometimes, I speak to women who want to be in another job right now. The suffering, compounded anxiety and exhaustion is no joke. They are depleted and they are done. If that feels familiar, you could probably be in another legal job pretty quickly, or take a leave of...
