Determination. Conscientiousness. Creativity.

What three pieces of advice would you give to someone who wants to launch their own business?

1.  Determine resources for you--people/businesses in similar circumstances so you can ask for help when you need it. 

2. Take an opportunity each week to set aside time to "think big picture" and continue to push yourself forward by setting goals. 
3. Get out there and make friends in the community by being active volunteering and networking. 

Who has been your greatest inspiration? Or what book has inspired you the most? Or what is your favorite book?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg #goals

I met her in the fall of 2014 after she spoke at U of M Law, and I have a picture of us together framed in my office. Her career in supporting equality and seeking justice has always inspired me. I try to emulate her drive and resilience in my law practice.
