Go-to stress buster: “I love to listen to music. So, if I am experiencing a stressful situation or need to regain focus, I turn on some music.”
What do you wish someone had told you when you were first starting out in business? “Be a risk taker. You can become obsessed with what ifs and minutiae, and become paralyzed from moving forward. It is only when you are willing to take risks, do something out of your comfort zone and think outside of the box that success truly follows. Lawyers tend to be viewed as risk-averse, but to be successful in business, you need to embrace calculated risk.”
