Here’s a picture I took last month at Hanging Lake – that beautiful travertine lake in Glenwood Canyon.  Just a reminder to get outside and enjoy the natural beauty of Colorado (but don’t forget the sunscreen). OK, it’s July – the 8th of July in fact – and how is your summer going?  Is it quieter than usual? […]

What’s on your buffet tray?  In the last installment of this series, Amy Symons and Julie Davis urged us to “face the music and make a plan.”  The two solos explained how they have put together documentation systems for their own and for their mutual benefit in the event one has to step in for […]

First, we start with the dancing alone (OK, I really wanted to get some get some tap dancing footage in here, and YouTube didn’t disappoint).  When I last saw Savion Glover in Boulder, he was tapping to classical music.  Here’s a fairly old clip, but it’s classic Savion. I love watching this guy tap.  Yep, […]

What is inertia anyway? I’m writing a series on this cheery topic so that we can continue the conversation about the important questions raised in the “Death of a Solo, Death of a Practice” CLE I presented in February.  I told a couple jokes about death and dying at the CLE … and got some […]

by Barb Cashman on February 4, 2013

Attention all women-owned law firm types and women attorneys: We will be meeting once again at the Denver Tea Room at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 to reprise our very enjoyable tea we had there last year.  OK, we’re two days premature for Women’s History Month (March) – but that doesn’t stop us!  This is […]

This is the final installment of our hero’s journey, and I’m combining the three Rs of the journey: Reward, Road Back, and Return with Elixir. This sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?  I think we should cue The Lord of the Rings’ “Return of the King” for this occasion. The end – or is it just […]

Whoa, we’re still in the cave, and now it’s ogre time! Or not. But this is no cake walk; in fact, the definition of ordeal is “a difficult or painful experience, especially one that severely tests character or endurance.” Sounds pretty mythic in proportion, no? Let’s get started – this is about taking “networking” to […]

Don’t these titles seem to be getting more dramatic sounding as we proceed through the Hero’s Journey? Indeed – in this portion of our journey (yes, remember it’s “how a solo attorney can venture into the wide world of Facebook, overcome fear and obstacles, gain useful insight and skills and emerge triumphant” – just in […]

In the last post we crossed the threshold, which means we have finally committed to “the journey.”  Now we face certain obstacles, remember Homer’s “Odyssey”– or maybe you’re thinking of the more current rendition of it,  “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” So – away we go!  Let’s look at some of our “tests” first.  Unlike […]
