In this week’s rainmaking recommendation from expert and trainer, Jaimie Field, she talks about “failure to implement” syndrome – read on to find out what that means, and how to solve it. I’ll add my two cents as well – when you’re struggling because you have all the information you need to make changes, but you’re just.not.making.them, what you need to do is find your “why.” That is the thing that’s going to get…
Just getting it in under the wire – I wanted to take the opportunity to mark the occasion of Zen & the Art of Legal Networking’s 11th Anniversary. Eleven is a lot of years to be writing – I started this blog when I was only four years into my career with the ILN, when I was still finding my way in the legal industry, and it helped me to gain confidence, meet talented, smart…
We may have had a mild winter (most of us) so far, but let’s be honest, 2020 has been a bit of a slog so far, am I right?

It’s always been about them, but every year there…
None of us are perfect networkers/relationship builders. Yes, it seems to come more easily to some than to others, but it’s not an exact science. For the most part, it’s an ever-adapting process that we’re constantly refining based on our current goals and our target’s needs. But there are a couple of areas that we tend to go astray with building relationships, and that’s where we’re going to focus today.…
Continuing with the theme of International Networking Week is a post from rainmaking trainer and expert, Jaimie Field, who’s bringing you ten best networking practices for networking events. *** Apparently, according to my friend and colleague, Lindsay Griffiths, the Executive Director of the International Lawyers Network, it’s International Networking Week. I had no idea that there even was such a thing until last year.  It is to celebrate how networking helps business…
