What are some good professional goals to set in your first five years of practice? For context, commercial lit associate at boutique firm, so lots of opportunity for hands on experience. Just want some ideas of what I should be thinking about and aiming for. Thanks!

I'm more following along for advice because this was a great question. But what you want out of the practice even longer term than that? Do the partners around you seem like they enjoy life or are they overworked alcoholics with an affair? What do you want to be at their age? In a boutique firm are you looking to get more client interface/ develop a book of business? Commercial Lit, looking to get really good at a specific aspect of litigation? Do you want to try and specialize or learn any areas of knowledge adjacent to commercial lit, like e-discovery with a more boutique feel?

135k base and I would like to buy a Porsche. I have 20k in student loans and no other debt. Go for it? I'm not even into cars but every time I’m dashing through the Target parking lot and see one, it’s like love at first sight😍. That is my only justification 😂

What celebrities have you run into while travelling for work? Me? Sat next to Erin Burnett on a NJ flight and literally bumped into Plaxico Burress at a NY bar.

Wow. This morning on a quarterly regional all hands an Accenture Managing Director (and leader) had the group stop for a full minute for thoughts and prayers for the president in the first lady in the wake of their coronavirus diagnosis. Not sharing my feelings... Just leaving this there.

It seems morally wrong that consultants are paid more the PhD biochemists, physicists, engineers and social workers. Why is compensation so disconnected from actual value creation in our society?

This is going to sound crazy - has anyone ever encounter another person showing up for the job on day one? 😕 I really don’t think this is the guy we interviewed on Zoom (for an IT position). I’ve kept it to myself so far. We are now on day three. Don’t know what I should do.

What won't you tell me that I should know? Keep in mind I'm one of the only partners on here who actually cares to ask a question like this, so appreciate keeping constructive / not lighting me up!
