Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys.

Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.

You may be pleasantly surprised by people. I'm a proponent of visibility in the workplace. It may give strength to someone else that you don't realize may be struggling with coming out too. Plus, it's now a part of pop culture to be LGBT; and workplaces are leading the charge with diversity and inclusion initiatives. I leverage this aspect of myself in the workplace and upper management and partners frequently reach out to me to provide me with opportunities for higher visibility in the office strictly because of that aspect of myself.

Anyone ever experience being on a project where your supervisor or lead just tells you they don’t like your work and to just fix it without providing any reasoning or how to fix it?

I have ADHD and anxiety already and this is just heightening it all and I’m paranoid I’ll get fired at any moment…
