Power Lunch

Networking is key to any successful career, and marketing seems to be the new watch word for law firms. I tend to prefer less traditional ways like sharing my quilts. This week, however, I found myself doing it the old-fashioned way. I had lunch at the 191 Club.

If you, too, were out having a power lunch at the 191 Club, you may have spotted Steve Labovitz of McKenna Long and me having a joyful lunch. We had so much catching up to do.  Aside from being a University of Pittsburgh alum which is where my daughter is in school, Steve makes it his business to know everything happening on the local government scene. That is invaluable for a person like me who specializes in local government mediations. On the way out, we ran into Connie Stokes, DeKalb County Commissioner and unsuccessful candidate for Congress, and Michael Coleman  of Epstein Becker and Green and former City Attorney of Atlanta.

Networking and client development does not have to be a chore. It can actually be fun. Spend a few minutes each day re-connecting with people. The work will be there when you return.
