Useful Advice for Everyone

The topics that this podcast covers are so relevant to everyone- not just lawyers. I like the mood and tone of Megan's podcasts, it's a great way to gently ease into the start of my day. I really enjoy listening; as a graphic designer and entrepreneur I've found that some of the episodes had me thinking out of the box on how these topics apply to my trade. Highly recommend.

A great resource!

If you’re a lawyer, this is a great podcast , no matter where you’re licensed. Megan covers topics relevant to her California practice, but raise good points for all lawyers. It regularly gives me heartburn and anxiety (ZOMG I'M GONNA LOSE MY LICENSE FOR SNEEZING WRONG), but it forces me to get better and faster and more accurate at things for my clients.
