There’s only so much hustling (while still feeling behind) that a lawyer can take before burning yourself out. Right?
You’re beyond busy – chaotic (even a little bit insane) might be a better description.
The pressure to deliver an immediate response makes you anxious about making costly mistakes. And so you can’t ever turn work off.
You want to lean into your own voice, speak up and be heard. . . yet you don’t always trust your instincts and often grind over (then second-guess) decisions.
Somewhere along the way, you lost the spark that made you want to become a lawyer in the first place. Perhaps it has something to do with your inability to say “no” to anyone (other than yourself).
“Perfect for any lawyer who wants to get to the next level without losing yourself in the process.”

Hey there, I’m Heather.
Recovering lawyer, executive coach and master of making the complex suuuuper simple.
Lover of queso and dark chocolate (I know, weird combo) + all things Texas Longhorns who’s driven to help lawyers reignite the spark that made them want to become a lawyer in the first place.
Although I enjoyed practicing law and built a profitable ($2.5MM+) book of business that made for a comfy lifestyle, something happened that changed me and my professional mission forever. . . I got cancer. Thankfully, I beat the odds. But it led me in an unexpected direction.
I now combine my unique legal + business development wisdom with my coaching skills to help lawyers succeed in BOTH life and law so that they can achieve more while doing less, and free up time for things that don’t involve lawyering (you know. . . family, friends, hobbies and some quiet moments for absolutely nothing).
Get the full story about me here, where you’ll also learn the inside scoop on how I feel about the unwritten rule (all lawyers are programmed to believe) that you should put your clients above all else. [Spoiler alert: I don’t agree].
