What is the greatest success you’ve had since joining LWP?
I accept the challenge to name my greatest success since joining LWP and believe it is having become a member of an organization of like-minded estate planning attorneys. Organization is a word, I would describe LWP as a family.
What is your favorite LWP tool?
I use the design templates each time I work with a client. These templates insure that I am discussing all of the issues with my clients.
Being a member of LWP has given me the opportunity to learn and fine tune my skills as an estate planning attorney. LWP membership has helped me understand the value I bring to my clients. My understanding of the value we as the LWP community hold and share daily has increased my self-confidence.
I share in each of my workshops that I attend national conferences throughout the year. These conferences provide educational material and networking opportunities, where I meet outstanding attorneys from throughout the United States. I also attend the recurring educational webinars provided by LWP members while I am in my office.
Being a part of LWP has allowed me to create a practice that lets me create the life I want. I'm a solo attorney in Anchorage, Alaska who is grateful every day to go to work, knowing that I have the whole LWP community behind me. I tell my workshop attendees, I'm a solo attorney, but it never feels like that in my office, because I can match a face to the people's names on the list serve and I know that the LWP community is only a phone call, email, plane ride, or a retreat away.
Share something about yourself that most people don’t know about you.
I have a weighted hula hoop and arm hoops from Canyon Hoops in Portland, Oregon. Hula hooping is a great sport.
What is your favorite book and how did it impact your life?
I'd have to say the book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young; the Bible; Miracles Happen, by Mary Kay Ash; and 90 Days on the Path to Success, Building Health, Wealth, and Abundance by Lora Newman, M.S. I'm continually learning how to live my life and including God in it. These books and people, Lora Newman, are helping me have a more fulfilled life.
