Law school teaches you to think like
an attorney. They don't tell you that this is only half of the pie.
Lawyers don't learn about effective communication skills, business
skills, how to establish rapport with clients and staff, or how to gain
respect and agreement from juries. The attorneys who are successful are
those who either already were blessed with these skills or the ones who
learned them through great time and expense. Attorney and Life Coach

Damien. I’m happy to be here.
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?
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.
