Congratulations to us! Lawyers Mutual Consulting & Services is celebrating three years in business. Exactly half of our time in business has been working during a pandemic.
When I started talking about “evolve and thrive”, I meant that as a call to action for my clients. Little did I know that I was about to start a great journey of evolving and thriving myself.
For starters, I had never worked remotely. As an extrovert, I love daily collaboration and I thrive on being around people. My work life and social life constantly blur as my circle of friends largely includes professional friends. Creating small circles of connection, staying home 24/7, and working from upstairs, I found myself evolving, but I certainly wasn’t thriving.
But eventually, winter ended, and the vaccines arrived. I began to venture out for a few lunches and coffees outside.
And all the while, every project seemed new and daunting. In a new business it takes a while to find your clients, to figure out what they want, and to determine how to best provide them with that service. At the 18-month mark, I was really beginning to feel I was getting there. And then I had to re-evaluate everything.
I’m so thankful for the friends and mentors who helped me through the process. Special thanks to other consultants who would answer my questions at any time of day or night. (I loved it when one friend said, “I have a standing date to watch ‘The Batchelor’ with my daughter so I’ll call you as soon as we’re finished viewing and dishing!”)
I understand evolving and thriving in a whole new way. And I’m still committed to help my clients get there.
Thank you for being a part of this journey. I promise you, if you are reading this, you have contributed to my ongoing growth and success. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
