I want to take this opportunity to wish my friends and clients HAPPY HOLIDAYS and all the best for the years to come. As most businesses wind down this time of year, so does the legal world, or at least my world, so I am able to take this time to reflect a little on the past year.
What a great experience it has been to start my own firm. Thank you all for your enthusiasm, support, cheering, etc. Without you I would have never been able to take this giant step, which has been extremely rewarding.
For the past 18 years I have helped others start their own businesses. I sit with clients for hours sometimes, making plans for how they can create their own destiny, follow their dreams, control their futures and become truly satisfied with their chosen path. Finally, I took some of my own advice (and some advice from others; thank you!) and dove in head first to the second phase of my legal career.
So as 2011 comes to a close, I can share the following with you:
It is rewarding to create your own future.
If you work hard and love what you do the rest comes easy, and you will be successful.
If you help others at the same time; the rewards are exponential.
Thank you for the opportunity to allow me to be a part of your life and you a part of mine, and may 2012 be even better for all of us!
