Lifestyle Lawyer

Author: Lee Holcomb

Book Description: A timely and important book that challenges the way we think about the practice of law. The book lays out the recent disruption of the traditional legal industry while challenging attorneys to think about what it truly means to be a happy and successful lawyer. Technology could be the door opener that allows attorneys to change the legal landscape and create new, more fulfilling ways to practice law in the 21st century.

What inspired you to write your book?

“Just like many female attorneys, my traditional legal career was turned upside down when I was faced with juggling children and my husband’s career. When technology presented new options for attorneys seeking a more flexible work-life balance, I discovered a new legal career that matched my personal and career goals and allowed me to stay-in the practice of law. This experience combined with the recent disruption of the traditional legal industry inspired me to write this book to help educate female attorney’s on how they can change their mindset about their careers and what it means to be successful.”

The PleaseNotes Guided Journal
The PleaseNotes Guided Journal

Founder: Cheryl Sutherland

Company Description: These guided affirmation journals, notebooks, stationary, and decorative items are made to help people tap into their passions, drive, and purpose.

What inspired you to start your company?

“I had reached a point in my life where I knew I had to do something different. I had more to give, and if I continued doing what I was doing, I would just be terribly unhappy. I quit my job and created space for an idea to pop in. I spent time journaling, working with affirmations, and reading. After a couple weeks, I realized the thing that really lit me up was the process of self-exploration and personal development. I wanted a way to consistently remind myself of the person I re-discovered thorough this process, and that’s how PleaseNotes was born.”
