The annual Tri-Cities Women in Business Conference typically takes place in January, but has been postponed to later in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We asked past ATHENA Award recipients for their favorite inspirational quotes, podcasts, books, and more to help motivate you through 2021.
Words of Wisdom
I not only love this quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg but I try my best to live by it: "I tell law students… if you are going to be a lawyer and just practice your profession, you have a skill—very much like a plumber. But if you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself… something that makes life a little better for people less fortunate than you."
I love reading business books, especially the ones geared towards running a law practice, but my all-time favorite is The E-myth Attorney since it explains how to create effective structures in one’s law office.

My favorite podcast now is Crushing Chaos in Law Firms. Allison Williams, who is an attorney with her own very successful law firm, goes deep into explaining the psychology of why certain things should be done certain ways in your law office. She is pretty cool, and I think every attorney should listen to her podcast.

I am looking forward to all my future travels and camping trips!
