  • Allison - you got my attention this time. While not an attorney, but work with a number of attorneys, I got thinking about things they don't carry but should. #1 - Enough business cards when they go out to seminars or events. #2 - Their name badge (the magnetic one I had made up for them) when they go speak, attend an event; #3 - A smile - no matter how bad their day is going; #4 - Enough cash to offer to pay the tip or parking fee; #5 - The vision to identify a potential client or a possible referral source.

  3. 3. Smart phone – Droid Razr MaxxI’m on the go a lot, so I’m often checking my calendar, emails and socialmedia from my smartphone – not to mention taking client calls. Andalthough it might not be the best camera out there, it still is a camera inmy pocket, and it takes pretty good photos – like this one.
  4. 4. CuriosityThere’s always something new tolearn and do!
  5. 5. An Open MindI like to be open to whateversurprises might come my way,and try not to approachthings with a preconceivednotion of what they might –or “should” be.I also don’t believe in “bestpractices” and try not toblindly accept conventionalwisdom.
