In this episode, Alay and Stacie discuss:
- Ongoing education as a business development tactic.
- Being involved in the community to build your book of business.
- Mindsets that prevent lawyers from participating in their organizations.
- The relationship between serving and leading.
- It is not just enough to be a member in an organization, you need to show up, be active, and participate.
- Speaking is a way to give you visibility and credibility quickly.
- Don’t allow your own introversion to hold you back on speaking – there are tricks to help yourself get up there, authentically, and perform.
- What gets one person ready for an event may not be what gets someone else ready. Do what works for you and don’t hold yourself back from going for them.
