SONIA: Hi, Damien. I’m happy to be here.
DAMIEN: It’s a pleasure to have you with us today. Today we are discussing the Success Round Table for Lawyers. Sonia how did you get started in Time for Life, L.L.C?
SONIA: Well it’s been quite a ride. I can tell you I practiced law for the past 6 years, and I actually owned my own law firm for the past two and during that time I always felt like I was missing something and that I should be working and helping people in a different manner. And during that time I was owning my own firm, I networked about 3 times a week, and it was basically through word of mouth and specific alliances that I got my clients, and just being out there and networking with so many attorneys on a constant basis I noted that there are specific issues we have to deal with on a regular basis and don’t really have the skills to help us. And those issues are client’s business development and client attraction and retention.
