Professional Prosperity For Lawyers: Find The Perfect Job And Create Your Ideal Career
 
Product Description:

Lawyers, You Can Revitalize Your Career Starting Today.


Whether you are in law school or a senior partner at an Am Law 100 firm, this book can help you revitalize your career to find the perfect job and create your ideal career.

Benjamin Barton, a law professor at the University of Tennessee, in his recent book on the legal profession, stated that only “44 percent of BigLaw lawyers report satisfaction with their careers.” According to a 2014 Gallup poll, only 32.4% of professionals in the United States were engaged with their jobs. And over 15% were actively disengaged.

There is a disconnect between lawyer’s passions and their work. Some lawyers detest their jobs. Others tolerate their work for the paycheck. Either way, these lawyers are detached and dissatisfied with their jobs. They desire something deeper and more meaningful in their work and career.

This book can help you revitalize your career and achieve success, prosperity, and personal fulfillment. Success, prosperity, and personal fulfillment as you, and only you, define those terms.


The Professional Prosperity For Lawyers System


Through the career revitalization system in this book, you will use your strengths to achieve goals reflecting your personal vision of an ideal career. You will explore jobs aligned with who you are and create a career path you have only dreamed of pursuing.

Your career revitalization is based on two central premises.

First, lawyers must view their career as a business. Whether you are a lawyer at the largest law firm in the world or are a sole practitioner, you are a business. Your career should be run like a business.

Second, run your business as an entrepreneur if you want to be successful, prosperous, and personally fulfilled.

If you want to control your future and realize your dreams of a perfect job and ideal career, the career revitalization process provides the framework. Use the framework, follow the process, and take the actions. You will get your perfect job and create your ideal career. A career giving you the freedom to do the work you what you want to do. When you want to do it. And, with the people you want to do it with.

Imagine getting up in the morning looking forward to your day. Being rested and full of energy. Controlling your schedule. Working on projects that interest and excite you. Collaborating with people you like and respect. Taking time off to spend with family and friends. Having time for leisure activities or working on projects outside your job.

This career revitalization system is grounded in the practices, processes and actions of many lawyers who are successful, prosperous and personally fulfilled. You will live your dreams by implementing the career revitalization process.


Why I Can Help You Revitalize Your Career


I had a successful legal career, developed a book of business over $3.5 million, was an equity partner at two Am Law 100 firms, was an in-house counsel at a publicly traded investment bank, went from in-house counsel to a law firm partner and left the law on several occasions.

I know how to achieve success, prosperity and personal fulfillment.

Most importantly, I know how you can achieve success, prosperity and personal fulfillment, and I have a strong desire to help you discover the path to your ideal career and life.

I also endured decades of boredom and stress as a practicing lawyer. I disliked much of my work and was frequently disengagement from it. Substance abuse, bouts of depression, divorce and financial issues are part of my career story. And, consideration of suicide on more than one occasion. I could not enjoy the fruits of my career “success” story.

I am now on a mission. A mission to help you create an epic career of success, prosperity and personal fulfillment.

Now is the time to take action. Start today!

The Street-Smart Paralegal's Guide to: Getting a Job With a Lawyer or Law Firm

The Street-Smart Paralegal s Guide to: Getting a Job With a Lawyer or Law Firm
 
Product Description:
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’RE A PARALEGAL!
NOW WHAT?

Paralegal programs are great to teach you the basics – how to write, how to analyze, different areas of law, etc., but they limit your exposure to what happens next. Sure, a career advisor will spend 1-2 days explaining how to format your resume, how to draft a cover letter and how you can go to them to critique it and get help with your job search.

But think about it – you were just in a class with at least 20-30 other aspiring paralegals that learned the same things you did.

After all, the structure of the paralegal program has to be consistent for all of its students, from the courses they offer to the career advice they give at the end.

Plus, once you’ve completed the program, you’re no longer classmates. For the most part, you’re all competing for the same law firm jobs - along with past program graduates who may also be hunting for a job.

Most job-hunting guides have the same problem. Because they are intended as a general, how-to guide on finding a job, the majority give you a one-size-fits-all approach that may or may not work for you.

The way to get an edge is to make yourself stand out. But how?

Introducing The Street-Smart Paralegal’s Guide to: Getting a Job with a Lawyer or Law Firm
Instead of the usual job search advice, this guide gives you a step-by-step system to find the paralegal job of your dreams!

Discover how to:

1. Easily create a plan of action;

2. Explore different areas of law;

3. Find lawyers and law firms you’d like to work for;

4. Network effectively to make connections;

5. Ace the interview;

6. Properly follow up after the interview;

7. Choose from multiple job offers; and,

8. Ensure you made the right choice.

Written by a paralegal that’s been in the trenches and experienced the highs and lows of the job search since 2002, The Street-Smart Paralegal’s Guide to: Getting a Job with a Lawyer or Law Firm will help you avoid that dead-end job and create a career that’s as unique as you are!
