The Lawyer Coach is Back to Blogging

After a long hiatus this lawyer coach is returning to her blog!  Some of you may be wondering what happened?  Why the long break?  The answer is simple.   I never developed the vital habit of writing short blog posts.  The time commitment was considerable.  With a busy coaching practice and limited time available I placed my priority on my clients and let the blogging go. 

When I started this blog in December 2006 I was wrapping up my work as the Marketing Director at a large Canadian litigation firm and launching my lawyer coaching practice.  I was busy right from the start but in the spring of 2008 I initiated my BASE CAMP Business Development Training Program for associates and got even busier.  In addition to my one-on-one coaching clients I now was working with large groups of associates as well.   With all my time spent in boardrooms and on the phone meeting with clients there was little time left for other pursuits!

As the months passed I found I missed the blog.  I enjoy writing and exchanging ideas with other bloggers and a large community of readers.  This New Year’s I determined to get back to blogging.  I will focus on posting shorter entries more frequently.  There sure is a lot to blog about!  Since I stopped writing in August 2008 the legal market has transformed.  I look forward to sharing my ideas and top strategies about how to maximise the opportunities in this challenging economic environment.  If you have any topics or questions you would like me to address in my blog just send me an email or a comment.

It’s good to be back!
