Last night, Lainey Lui (gossip columnist, tv host) spoke at the Young Women in Law Charity Gala and shared some helpful pointers.
Lainey encouraged us to always feel hungry and to strive for more. She never characterizes herself as successful. The hunger to be more and do more fuels her and makes her a go-getter.
Lainey noted that strong communication skills are critical to success, especially communicating well with people outside the legal industry. She recommended that we write clearly and remove unnecessary legal jargon from our communications.
Lastly, Lainey told us to never be idle.
As the famous saying goes “idle hands are the devil’s workshop”.
