I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving. My firm has a lot to be thankful for this season. Since opening my own firm very gradually with zero clients in 2008, and experience with estate planning but no experience with running my own business, I have experienced tremendous growth. Here are some work-related things I’m very thankful for:
– My current and former clients. Without you, my dream of opening my own firm wouldn’t have been possible. I sincerely thank all of you for putting your trust in me.
– My trusted advisors. I appreciate deeply the faith you put in me when referring a client to me, and I strive to do a fantastic job for those clients. I also appreciate your willingness to take the time from your busy schedule to answer a question when I call.
– My support staff. This includes my awesome paralegal, Kristina, my incredibly flexible babysitter, Marion, and my wonderful husband.
– Technology. I couldn’t have opened the practice of my dreams without the internet. With the power of technology, I am able to easily market my practice, successfully maintain a part-time practice, communicate with clients more easily and efficiently, and be more productive.
I can’t believe where my firm is at today, and I couldn’t be more pleased to have chosen a line of work that allows me to both pursue my professional passions while also spending a great deal of time with my children. I hope you all have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, as well.
