Did you look around one day and realize you were in Big Law for the wrong reasons? Like many young associates, Chelsea found herself in BigLaw because she thought it was what she "should” do with her law degree. Then she hit a breaking point. Today Chelsea shares her story of leaving BigLaw and how she’s living life on her own terms. She shares the habits she cultivates to keep her motivated and the importance of ruthless prioritization when chasing your dreams.

  • The 3 habits that Chelsea uses to stay on track
  • Simple adjustments you can make to your mindset today


Best Advice for Finding Happiness:


If you can start translating your professional skill set into the intentional planning of your life outside of work - I guarantee amazing things will start to happen. Your time becomes your own again. You can start to craft a vision of where you are headed that you love. You can stop dreading Sunday nights if you know you are moving towards something truly meaningful for yourself and the vision of your life. I promise.
