What was your first job? Server at Steak ‘n Shake. I was truly horrible.
What was your professional aha moment? To truly be good at your job and do great work for your clients, you must be confident in your own knowledge and abilities.
What did you learn the hard way? It is a much better use of your time and talents to focus on your strengths and leveraging the things you are already good at, rather than to try to turn something at which you are mediocre into a strength.
What’s your most treasured possession? My Missouri Bar card. It’s funny how much time, effort and money that small plastic card represents.
What app gets you through the day? Podcasts. An eclectic mix of law, true crime, “Bachelor” franchise and celebrity podcasts.
