What are the three most important lessons you have learned building your business?
Lesson one is to learn when to turn work “off” and your personal life “on,” because when you own your own business, there is always something that needs to be done. Lesson two is to treat all clients like a million-dollar deal because you never know when one small job will lead to something really big. Lesson three is to train every employee to be their best because your business will only be as good as your weakest employee.

On those impossible days, what motivates you to keep going?
Clients who share how we have helped them get into their dream home or successfully navigate the family court system, knowing we made a difference in their lives, motivates me to keep doing what I do.

Do you have a motivational quote?
“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson

How long have you been in business?
I have practiced law for 25 years and have been a sole practitioner for 12 years.

What advice would you give to your children about running a successful business?
Running a successful business takes heart and soul, so follow your passion. Look around to see a need that isn’t being met, and learn how to fill that need, or fill it in a different way than someone else is doing it. Be ready to work hard and believe in yourself as much as I believe in you.
