Attorney Raven Willis’ caught my attention. They were great free nuggets of advice and very relevant to my current phase. Transitioning to a multi-vertical business is hard work. It’s hard on nearly every level when doing it sort of Richard Branson-ish like - less the billions. Willis’ Linkedin post on severability provoked a re-evaluation of my thought process. And it prompted me to contact her.
“Is that why you went into law?”
She replied that it wasn’t. It was her cut and dry legalistic view that got her into law. “My mother told me that I had a definite sense of right and wrong. There are no gray areas for me. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I wanted to further my education. I really didn’t know what my advanced degree would be. It seemed like MBAs were a dime a dozen. Law school took time but it seemed to fit my best attributes. So, in 2005, while my husband worked on his PhD, I started law school.”
