The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
On Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 8:00 p.m. EST, Vicki Voisin, The Paralegal Mentor, and mastermind behind The Paralegal Mentor Mastermind Series, will present an hour-long live teleconference “Doing It All!” with me as her guest. I was really excited to be invited, not only because I can do this from my house in my bathrobe, but because I’m a big fan of Vicki’s work, especially her expertise in the areas of ethics and time management. We plan to discuss a variety of issues relating to the paralegal profession. I just talked to Vicki via telephone this afternoon and enjoyed the conversation so much that I couldn’t help but think how great it would have been to know her when I first started out in this field. She’s definitely someone that I’d meet for coffee (and pick her brain) on a regular basis.
Vicki and I plan to discuss:
- How we integrate work with outside interests. (I remember I used to have outside interests.)
- How we manage to balance our personal and professional lives. (This is the part where *I* pick Vicki’s brain.)
- How we use social networking sites to increase our knowledge and build our professional connections. (I would have killed for these resources back “in the day” when everyone would have laughed at a concept like the Internet.)
- The importance of giving back to the paralegal profession. (Many wonderful people have guided, supported and mentored me, so I feel lucky if I can do that for someone else.)
I hope you can join us for some fun. I promise that neither Vicki nor I take ourselves too seriously, and are at heart, paralegal educators who enjoy teaching and learning (all of the time). You can sign up for this presentation whether you attend the live class or not. If you’re not available at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, register for the call and then listen to a recording at a time convenient for you.
