Welcome to "The Thriving Lawyers Podcast, brought to you by ReelTime Creative Learning Experiences and the Thriving Lawyers Collective!
Join us each week for candid, but ultimately inspiring conversation with lawyers from around the U.S. and Canada (and maybe points beyond) who have found ways to truly thrive in the practice of law.
We may even discuss a movie or two, on our never-ending quest for inspiration, motivation, and practical solutions. (That is how Reel Time got started, after all!)
Thriving... In the Aftermath of a Crisis, THREE TIMES! | Part 1
Join Chris Osborn for a lively and inspiring interview with Winter Wheeler, a wonderful, winsome, and winning litigator from Atlanta, who picked a paralyzing pandemic period to pivot her practice to all mediation and strike out on her own. You'll hear how she drew upon past experiences when life had thrown her some major curveballs (such as navigating Hurricane Katrina while at law school in New Orleans!) to once again persevere and prosper in spite of a perplexing predicament. Pooped parents will also appreciate her pronouncements on maintaining proper perspective about your performance.
