This podcast was created to empower women lawyers just like you to create a life and practice you love.

A Must Listen!
This podcast tackles the questions I’m constantly facing. Paula Price provides actionable advice that has greatly impacted me and my practice. I quit my big law job to launch my own boutique immigration practice and this podcast helps me manage things and get out of my own way. This is a must listen for anyone balancing life and law!
Excellent podcast for women lawyers
I stumbled on this podcast via Audible while on parental leave and I couldn’t be happier about it. Working in big law, now with three kiddos, is not for the faint of heart, and this podcast is just what I am needing to restore myself and prepare for my return to practice after my leave. Each episode is right on point with a thought-provoking lesson and practical tips I can apply to my practice and life. The podcast is also optimistic about a woman’s ability to create and maintain a joyful law practice, which is a welcomed change from the usual doom and gloom that I often hear about being a woman and mom in the practice.
This is a great podcast to really help you focus on yourself and ground you on days when things haven’t been going so well.
