I second this! Although if you’re looking for someplace warm, that’s not it.

Depends on what you want to do. Napa/ San Fran, Sedona, Santa Fe (probably would get boring after 3 to 4 days), glamping someplace with good hiking. What are your interests and what do you want to get out of the vacation?

Any business development advice for a minority female partner-level transactional lawyer? I have strong resume, incredible deal sheet, worked at the best firms. Existing firm clients say I'm the best counsel they ever had. But developing new clients (my own clients) is a hurdle. Seems like potential clients (mostly all white men) won't give me a chance at a deal. If they'd send me just one deal, I could win them over, but can't get my foot in the door. Advice?

After 15+ years of building our email list, we’ve just started using SMS marketing. We’re collecting emails and phone numbers and I’m wrapping my head around how to balance sends between the two formats. Text is rather immediate and personal but our email are blasts to larger segments. Should I still email my SMS subscribers at the same rate or pivot their promotions to text predominantly? Got any resources or case studies I can dive into?
