INTRODUCTION

The law is a noble and important profession, and being a lawyer creates awesome responsibility and opportunity. In law school, you transform from an unknowing novice to a sharply trained member of a highly-esteemed, long-standing profession. After the grueling law school years, it would be nice to think your education is over. It’s not! To stay at the top of your game and to enjoy your work, this profession requires a lifelong commitment to learning and growing! This program is designed for attorneys who are ready to elevate to their next professional level up, which might include:

  • defining a niche,
  • standing out in a new firm,
  • positioning for partner,
  • learning to be a rainmaker,
  • running for political office,
  • recovering from a career setback,
  • changing firms, or
  • starting a new firm or law related business.

Times of elevation can be among the most trying, tricky, and triumphant moments of your career.  You can do this alone, of course. Or, as you do for your clients, you can hire an expert to guide you, and make the processes simpler and more fun!

This program provides you with the support of a guide and a champion who is specially skilled and invested with you in seeing through your goals. And, this program gives you a structure to commit and carve out dedicated time to focus your efforts.  A supportive structure is vitally important to reaching your goals and elevating to where you desire to go, because as you know, your legal career and current commitments will consume absolutely all of your time and then some. Another year can easily pass where you have not outlined your goals or made significant progress toward your higher vision for yourself. You deserve better!

Being a lawyer is a vocation, a calling. This program will ensure you find and carve out your niche and be clear on the work you are meant to do with your legal training and advocacy skills. You work hard. And you deserve the reward of reveling in the knowledge that your work matters! This program is designed to give you that feeling of fulfillment from the inside out. And when you develop that inner sense of being on your highest path, the magic begins to unfold.  The resources you need synchronistically find their way to you.

PROGRAM LEADERSHIP

Gina Marotta brings a trifecta of wisdom and experience to this program to serve as the highly qualified expert and career coach guiding your next elevation upwards in your legal career.

She knows the life of a lawyer.
Gina holds 10 years experience in the legal industry, where she worked along side the most highly-respected individuals in the profession. Gina built her reputation early which laid the foundation for her success. In law school, she utilized her exceptional skills as a legal writer to launch a brief writing business.  As graduation approached, Gina didn’t need to interview for a job. Based on her reputation and work to date, she was offered a position at a top notch criminal defense firm, which was exactly where she wanted to be. During her years as a practicing attorney, Gina worked on Chicago’s highest profile cases ranging from political corruption to murder and everything in between.

She is skilled in business.
Gina has 15+ years experience in business as an entrepreneur and in organizational leadership. After leaving the legal profession, Gina was hired as the Managing Director to the national nonprofit organization Step Up Women’s Network. There, she reported directly to the CEO and was responsible for all aspects of Chicago operations and business development. Wearing many hats, Gina engaged in strategic planning, management, program development, marketing, branding, budgeting, and fundraising. Gina was also the voice of the organization in Chicago. Her grit and can do attitude launched the organization off the ground in Chicago from its inception. She was most well known during her time at Step Up for networking and engaging the right talent for key roles, which caused the organization to flourish under her leadership.

She is gifted in seeing and bringing out inner genius.
Gina’s most magical gift is spotting genius and bringing out people’s best ideas and highest potential. She does this in developing successful teams, working one on one with clients, and at random places and spaces as opportunities present themselves. Gina also has a keen sense for detecting the innermost blocks that hold people back, and then checking her toolbelt of practical and magical empowerment tools to overcome the blocks. She is a lifetime student of self-empowerment, mindfulness, and spiritual practices that help us create our most desired results in work and life. Just sit with her once in talking about a professional issue, and I dare you to leave without a major life-altering insight!

ENROLLMENT PROCESS

The first step is to email Gina and schedule a 30 minute consultation call. During this call you will discuss:

  • What are your present pain points professionally – what is not working or feeling out of alignment?
  • What do you know about what you desire for the next stage of your career?
  • How are you hoping Gina can help you?

You also will have the opportunity to ask Gina any questions about the program, her style, etc. Following the call, Gina will send you a customized recommendation that includes options for duration of engagement, pace, number of sessions, and pricing. Then, you’ll have a second meeting to discuss the options and choose what is best for you.
