We had the good fortune of connecting with Carree Nahama and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Carree, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
3 part test:
1. Is what you are doing helping someone or for the greater good? If yes, go to #2. If no, stop.
2. Are you able to keep going and still be healthy? If yes, go to #3. If no, stop.
3. Will you learn a lesson at the end and will that help you grow as a person? If yes, keep going! If no, stop.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
In running a boutique law firm,* I am able to be very accessible to my clients. I truly believe in customer service, in all areas of things we engage in out in the world, and I feel passionate about making true human connections. The way to do this is to really talk to and listen to people seeking your services. Have empathy. This connection cannot be made on social media platforms or on a phone call. The best way to engage with people is in person. And, it is in this connection that all of our special qualities, quirks and personality comes out. There is no other person in this whole world exactly like YOU. I try very hard to make a unique connection to each of my clients and in doing so, I am able to tell their stories and struggles.
*Boutique law firms tend to offer more specialized services, highly experienced staff, and have a shorter client list
