Sweet but Fearless Podcast

Sep 12, 2022

In this episode, we talk with Laura Terrell, an executive coach with more than 25 years of experience as a legal and business insider. Prior to coaching, she was a Special Assistant to the President at the White House, a senior level appointee at the U.S. Department of Justice, an equity partner in two large global law firms, and in-house counsel at a publicly traded company.

Too often, we fail to be our own advocate. Advocating for the recognition and compensation we deserve gives us the power to determine the direction of our career goals and achievements.

Laura's discussion on how we should learn to manage our career like a business and leverage our skills is an invaluable tool to accelerate our success and satisfaction with our work life.
