Beginning A New Chapter

Yeah, I know — radio silence lately.

As many of you know, I have worked for many years in the legal community — in fact, my first job was in 1968 — for you trivia folks, that was the year before Woodstock.  Our world was shaped a great deal different then.  There was the war in Vietnam; protests all over the country and violence shown at Kent State where innocent students were gunned down by the National Guard.  It was a tumultuous time.  But in business, our beacon was straight in front of us — the client.  Everything began and ended with the client.  They were the sole reason we were there and we were crystal-clear on what our purpose was.  People for the most part were honest.  We performed the work — they paid the bills.

Fast forward to today, May of 2017.  Today in the legal world (and I suspect we are not the only field in which this is true) — a higher purpose has come into focus — and one that clearly drives the train.  It’s not about the client anymore — it’s all about the money.  I have always been proud of my profession, but not-so-much anymore.  The greed of a few in corporate offices far away have eclipsed our purposes, hobbled our talent, and have clearly left the client behind.

So, with that being said, I now speak to you from a retired standpoint — and I’m good with that.  I’m looking forward to new beginnings … fresh new thoughts … and great ideas for my books to come.

For our friends in Israel, let me apologize in advance for our President <sigh>.

For everyone else — until we meet again …

Shalom  … Peace be with you.

  1. Congratulations to you on your retirement. Time to sit back and relax and do some of the things you never had time to do. Sounds like you will do more writing and I am sure you will enjoy that. All the best is yet to come.
    Love, Judy
