Keeping it short and sweet this month. It’s all about attitude. *Rezooming your legal profession starts with your belief that you can. Nothing else matters.

Well, this guest lecture may actually surprise you as no one is going to sell you a high-priced web site or bedazzle you with fancy Search Engine Optimization (SEO) ‘tricks’. Why? Because you can create a good website on your own […]
I have spoken at length over the past 4 years about Rezoomers seeking mentors. This month I am speaking to those who would be mentors. You know who you are. You may be a successful Rezoomer or a colleague of a Rezoomer who sees them struggling and can offer to help. Often your help will […]
