#150: Self-Care Activities & Ideas For Any Lawyer

3/26/2024
Do the demands of work, life and business make you feel distracted, unfocused and like you're always jumping from one thing to another (not really getting much done and always behind)? You know that at least part of the answer is to devote more time to your own wellbeing yet struggle to fit proper self-care activities into your day-to-day (things are always so busy). Today's episode was made specifically for you. Listen to find out how to start fitting simple, quick self-care activities into your daily life - no matter how chaotic or overwhelming work (and life) feel. We will cover: (1) Ways to fit simple self-care activities into ordinary activities (you’re already doing). (2) How to carve out guilt-free bites of time for quick self-care that renews and reenergizes. (3) How to cultivate a habit of self-care through flexible routines you can do when short on time. *** GET THE ESSENTIAL SELF-CARE TOOLKIT Take this even further by grabbing your copy of the Essential Self-Care Toolkit to: --> Uncover your biggest areas of self-care need. --> Identify how to maximize your results. --> Create flexible self-care AM & PM routines (like the ones discussed in today's episode).

#149: You Need More Peer Support

3/19/2024
One of the top complaints I hear from attorneys is how isolated they feel. They lack support, and mostly frame that in terms of firm/management support. But when you dig deeper, we usually find that the support they lack (and need most) is peer support. Join me for a conversation with guest Rachel Clar around why attorney peer support is so crucial for: --> Your pocket book (she shares a stat that might just blow your mind). --> Building the law practice you really want (not the law practice others think you should have). --> Attorney wellbeing and mental health. *** RATE, REVIEW & FOLLOW --> "Lawyers need this podcast." --> "Heather hits every relevant topic, giving practical advice in an easy to digest manner." --> "Love hearing Heather and her guest’s perspectives on topics that attorneys often shy away from." If you're nodding your head, please consider rating and reviewing the show. Your review/rating will help me support more people (just like you) succeed in BOTH law and life.

#148: The Proper Balance Between Billable vs. Nonbillable Hours

3/12/2024
Ever struggle with how to properly balance between billable vs. nonbillable hours? You need to bill as much as possible so that you can meet your requirements and collect enough. But you can't NOT do nonbillable work (for a variety of reasons). How do you determine where to focus your nonbillable time? When does it make most sense to prioritize nonbillable work over billable work (and does that ever make sense)? And what IS the best percentage balance between billable vs. nonbillable hours? The answers to all of these questions (and more) are inside of today's episode. *** READY TO GET TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF YOUR LEGAL PRACTICE/CAREER... WITHOUT LOSING YOU IN THE PROCESS?

#147: How To Effectively Manage Young Attorneys

3/5/2024
Do you ever struggle with how to skillfully manage young attorneys? This is something I hear about often (it's a real struggle for most of my partner and senior counsel clients). And it's honestly nothing new. We know that older generations tend to struggle to relate to - and then most effectively lead - younger generations (which is a big reason why leadership coaches like me exist). But is it getting even harder - as most senior attorneys believe? Are Millennial and Gen Z lawyers so different that it's an even bigger struggle? And if so, what can be done about it? No matter where you are in your career, today's discussion with guest Ben Cooper is a must-listen because we get into: --> The very real differences in how younger generations have grown up that impacts how they show up in the workforce. --> The mental shift for managing young attorneys more effectively. --> Practical strategies for how to skillfully manage young attorneys (and retain them). --> Tips for young attorneys who want to succeed in the legal profession. --> Parenting tips + strategies to best prepare young people for the working world. *** RATE, REVIEW & FOLLOW --> "Lawyers need this podcast." --> "Heather hits every relevant topic, giving practical advice in an easy to digest manner." --> "Love hearing Heather and her guest’s perspectives on topics that attorneys often shy away from." If any of the above sounds like you, please consider rating and reviewing the show. Your review/rating will help me support more people (just like you) succeed in BOTH law and life.

#144: Letting Go Of Control

2/13/2024
How often do you wish you had more control... Over your time, your business, your life? If you're like most attorneys, you probably think (or even say) something to that effect daily. What if I told you that this isn't really what you want? Because control is based in fear (and also, is a lot of work).
