Who do you admire and look up to the most? Who inspires you to be great? Do you know anyone who has achieved what you’re striving for and can help you? If not, go out there and find someone. These amazing individuals are usually called mentors or sponsors. You may think that you don’t have access to one or don’t know of anyone who can help you achieve your dreams, but are you sure? Could it be that you haven’t put in the effort to find one? Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone who can guide you in achieving your goals. Make that call, send that e-mail, ask a mutual friend to make that connection. The worst someone can say is no. Remember that no one achieves success by themselves. Having a mentor or sponsor can also help in learning about the realities of a particular profession or business, and what it really takes to achieve your goals.
I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from one of the fiercest and most hardworking attorneys I know (shoutout to @thejennarator17 ). I’d probably have mini-heart attacks throughout my work day without her. Thanks Jenna ❤ Take the time to think hard about what it is that you want and who can help you achieve it. #legalpearlsofjoy
