I love transition stories and Christina's is a doozy. Christina is an author and family mediator, but just a year ago she was an associate on partner track at her BigLaw firm. On today's show, Christina shares her journey of deciding to step of the partner track and into her own mediation practice.  In the last year, she's built a business that not only serves her clients but also serves her goals and values.


What you'll learn:

  • What led Christina to quit her job
  • How Christina planned her exit from her firm
  • Why it’s important to question assumptions about what work will look like for you
  • The tools and tips Christina used to design her mediation practice to serve her clients and herself
  • What Christina would have done differently when leaving her firm
  • How her husband supported her through this journey


Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

It is really important to give thought to your preferences and goals without pre-judging what is possible. Once you know what you want to achieve, you can design the roadmap for accomplishing your big goals!
