Many of you do not know Dan Schwartz, a Connecticut attorney and publisher of the Connecticut Work Regulation Blog site.
I know Dan as a close friend, possessing 1st fulfilled him in Montreal 13 yrs in the past. I have gotten to know his caring loved ones, and him, mine, by way of Fb.
So it gave me goosebumps (I get emotional, simply) when I browse what Dan shared on LinkedIn this morning.
“At times it’s difficult to pinpoint when sure existence occasions have a major influence on your job.
For me, one of the most significant of them is actually simple to location.
It was thirteen yrs in the past this week that I commenced a website on employment regulation. A handful of months prior, I had fulfilled Kevin O’Keefe at a young lawyers conference for the ABA in, of all spots, Montreal.
I labored with his then-skeleton crew at LexBlog, Inc. and it’s all historical past from there.
So why has some thing as modest as a website had this sort of an influence?
Heaps of motives: The doorways it has opened to meeting some others. The continuous aim on keeping pertinent. The influence it has had on my composing.
And so significantly additional. So, here’s to thirteen yrs!”
I keep on to ask lawyers to get out the magic wand out when considering of blogging. Why? Running a blog can be a existence shifting function.
You can stand for the consumers you’d like to stand for on the sort of issues you’d like to operate on. You can shell out your children’s college tuition at the faculty of their option. You are going to be invited to journey to good spots with your wife or husband to speak – and it’ll be all compensated for.
And like Dan claims it’s just good to have the possibility to meet some others, to keep pertinent in your field and to enhance your capabilities.
Running a blog. Type of astounding the influence it can have on a lawyer’s job.
My team and are honored to participate in a modest part in aiding these lawyers.
