Description

Join us for an enlightening conversation on technology, transformation, and the world of writing with lawyer, mediator, and career coach  Wendy S. Meadows. We learn almost in real-time during the recording that Wendy has become an Amazon top-selling author with her book, "Sparkle and Grit." We discuss not only her book but the potential tech tools in a lawyer’s writing journey as we explore Wendy's personal experience in the realms of creativity, distraction-free work, and maintaining motivation in publishing. Also, this podcast is a must-listen for anyone looking to escape the endless cycle of monotony, overcome self-doubt, and embrace a life of sparkle and grit.

Wendy shares her top three tech tools that played a pivotal role in creating her transformative book, "Sparkle and Grit." She explains how the technology she employed in writing differed from her legal work. Furthermore, we discuss the mysteries behind maintaining motivation and staying on track during the challenging writing and publishing journey. During the conversation, Wendy's passion and authenticity shine through as she empowers listeners to start their journeys toward a balanced and vibrant life.

As a bonus, we discuss how your Tech-Savvy Lawyer helped her (and could help you) make well-informed computer choices.

Enjoy!

  • Note1: This podcast was scheduled one day off the normal publication schedule so that we could time it with Wendy's book release.
  • Note2: My apologies for the recording from my mic.  Apparently, the mics got "switched" just before we went live with the recording.
