"PSA for those of you who find yourself chronically writing off time when billing your clients. I developed this bad habit back when I was a law student in my first summer law firm job. And 15 years later, I'm still doing it! Here's something I've found tremendously helpful: examining (and changing) my "money mindset". This course developed by Paula Price helped me realize that a poor money mindset might be part of the problem. It was a bit of a shock to realize that no one had ever actually told me that I was too slow or taking too long to complete tasks - it was just a story that I had learned to tell myself, and it became ingrained over the years. I highly recommend the course! It's not just for lawyers who write off too much time - it's for those who hesitate to raise rates or ask for a raise, or procrastinate on billing, or just generally feel uncomfortable with the financial side of being a lawyer. A great way to get your CPD credits." - In Demand Contract Lawyer
"I consulted Paula at a time of professional upheaval. After working tirelessly for years, I had made a number of sacrifices to get to a senior position in Big Law. Yet, after rising in the ranks of a major international law firm, I was incredibly unhappy. Paula helped me unpack the reasons for this unhappiness using a value-based approach. She also allowed me to discover the path forward by asking questions that allowed me to make the best decision for me, in light of current circumstances. Paula is a compassionate advisor and it was invaluable to have her input as I made tough decisions that would have a long-lasting impact on my career. She is not only delightful but an incredible resource. I would recommend her in the highest possible terms." - Founder of Successful Solo Practice
