Turning a natural talent into a career sounds like a no-brainer. Think again, says Liz Brown. As a partner and commercial litigator in an international law firm, she was “doing what I had been trained to do for 15 years.
I was at the top of my game. But I was miserable . . . and that’s no way to live.”
Liz Brown is a nationally recognized expert on career choice and reinvention, the author of the Amazon best-seller, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the JD You Have, and an Assistant Professor of Business Law at Bentley.
She has practiced law in San Francisco, London, and Boston, advising senior executives at Fortune 500 companies on legal strategies and managing multi-million dollar cases as a litigation partner from beginning to end.
