We all have a picture in our head when we hear the word “Superwoman.” Maybe you’re thinking of Gal Galdot punching through walls. Maybe you’re thinking of that friend you have who successfully works full time, raises all four of her children, has a sparkling-clean house, and somehow manages to bake her own bread every week. This week, I was monitoring LexBlog’s social media during ILTACON, and I ran across a conference session that…
What do you think of when you think of “mindfulness“? It’s kind of a millennial buzzword nowadays. I’m guessing you’re picturing something along the lines of relaxing by the pool, sipping a glass of wine after a long work day, or doing yoga while watching the sun rise. But what about mindfulness at work? You might be thinking what I thought when I first heard this phrase: “I’m pretty sure work, by definition, is not…
Seeing the big picture is something I’ve been learning to do over the past few months. As I’ve discussed on my blog previously, I’m not naturally a big picture person – I love details, Post It notes with daily tasks neatly checked off, and throwing away a fully-completed checklist on Friday afternoon. Marketing is one of those areas of business where you very clearly need big picture creativity and attention to the smallest details at…
I’ve been at LexBlog for about 10 months now, which is weird to think. I think in my post-graduation haughtiness last June, I thought I would have a firm grip on marketing communications by now, wherever I ended up. Truthfully (and all that pride aside), I still learn new things every single day, and sometimes I still have no idea what the heck I am doing. I am still learning how to say “I don’t…
Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the outstanding achievements of women around the globe through the centuries. Yesterday, I talked to my wonderful mentor, Jennifer Ransom, and we reflected on the incredible sense of community that women create within the business world. We help, nurture, and inspire one another without prompting. We support and build each other up to new heights for the sake of seeing the other shine. In my short…
As Kylie Jenner once brilliantly stated, “I think this year is really about, like, the year of realizing stuff.” I have two things to say about that. First, I’m sorry I just quoted Kylie Jenner, but it will all make sense soon. Second, this is surprisingly applicable to my first month of 2019. As I mentioned in my last post, we’re working on a lot of exciting marketing goals this year at LexBlog, and…
Happy New Year to you! Here’s to another year of working hard and learning new things. With this new year upon us, it seemed fitting to talk a bit about some marketing goals we’re working to accomplish in 2019 here at LexBlog. This year, we’re working with a goal of making LexBlog known as a global network of legal publishers. Since our move towards creating a news source for expert insights and commentary on the…
In today’s workforce, having a LinkedIn profile is indispensable. The culmination of social media as an important source for news and entertainment has shifted even into job searching and recruiting. According to an annual report by Jobvite, 87% of recruiters utilize LinkedIn to find potential job candidates. You should not only be on LinkedIn, you should have a full profile – complete with every honor you’ve received, every volunteer position you’ve held, and every…
I haven’t blogged in awhile. My work at LexBlog has kept me busy – working with expanding Legal Tech Founders at Legal Geek in London last month, writing content for a new microsite, working with recruiting users for state bars. All of this really boils down to how I use communications. I wanted to write about that word today – communications. I think there are a lot of misconceptions around the gravity of what that…
If you were new to the legal industry, what would you expect a legal technology conference to be like? Probably drab, long, with lots of attendees in dark suits roaming the hotel corridors. That’s definitely what I thought when I joined LexBlog in July and heard I would be traveling to conferences with my team. From what I’ve heard, there are lots of legal conferences like this, and from what I heard prior to last…
