This podcast was created to empower women lawyers just like you to create a life and practice you love. As an advocate, you spend your days in service to others, fighting their battles and putting their needs first. But at the end of the day, you can be left feeling tired, overwhelmed, and like you’re missing out on something more. While you’ve mastered the skills of forecasting risks, solving problems, and working hard, those skills may not be helping you create the life and practice you want: one that brings you more joy. This podcast is your time away from the daily hustle to focus on taking care of you: seeing where you’re stuck, figuring out what you truly want and learning skills that will help you define and create success on your own terms.
Tune in every week and join Paula Price, litigator turned certified executive coach, as she shares practical tools you can use to define and create success on your own terms. If you’re over the overwhelm, done with putting out fires and ready to stop letting perfectionism hold you back from going after what you really want, this podcast is for you.

You may be in a position where you have the career, title, material comforts, partner, and children—or any number of things you always dreamed of having.

131: Set Boundaries and Reclaim Your Time
This week’s content is based on a workshop I recently ran with my mastermind group about time and boundaries. We often talk about creating work-life balance and identifying the boundaries that we need to set up between those two worlds. However, it’s not uncommon to feel out of control when it comes to prioritizing and protecting what’s most important to us.
Listen in this week as I invite you to question who owns your time. I’m guiding you through a time audit process that will reveal so much to you about what you’re making time for and whether it belongs on your calendar, how time and boundaries relate to each other, what it means to consider the pacing of your career, and how to exercise your decisions with confidence.

128: How to Channel Your Inner Mentor
We get all sorts of inputs from the society we live in about how we should be living our lives.

Discover how to channel your inner mentor. Hear why we aren’t practiced at tapping into the quiet whispers of wisdom we already have within us, the limits to looking outside of ourselves for the right answer, and an exercise that will help you get to know yourself better and hear the advice your inner mentor has to offer.

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.
