I have a rule when it comes to my career: every six months I reassess my top priorities, write them down and commit to them. At the start of my career, the focus was on salary and becoming a partner. Five years after qualifying, I began to re-examine what I wanted to do.
That’s where Peerpoint came in. I read about someone on the panel who is an artist and uses Peerpoint to supplement his artistic work. It really struck a chord with me, so I joined. Having more control gave me the chance to re-visit my childhood dreams: boxing and stage acting. A bigger one though was my interest in business. Peerpoint allowed me to explore that, to the point where I’ve launched my second social impact startup, 30 Minute Chat
Peerpoint hasn’t just enabled me this opportunity, it’s been the perfect partner every step of the way. The team worked very hard to find assignments that match my own criteria to the point where, when I first joined, I received three offers all in line with what I was looking for. That’s what surprised me the most: many of their clients are actively looking for lawyers at an earlier stage in their career, like me.
