On today’s show, Sarah talks with Nicolle Neulist, a former lawyer who went from lawyer, to information security consultant and analyst, to writing about horse-racing. 

In this conversation, Nicolle shares about:

  • Realizing during law school that law was not a good fit;
  • Leaving the law after less than a year as a lawyer;
  • Internally dancing a jig when being laid off during the 2009 contraction of the legal industry;
  • Being willing to accept having law school debt forever in exchange for not hating your job;
  • The mindset most lawyers have about how their career should go that holds them back from considering other options;
  • Why you need to learn to listen to yourself when it comes to your job and career;
  • and much more!
