I believe you can do anything with your law degree.

Yep. I do.

That doesn’t mean you should go to law school with the intent to never practice law. Good god, please don’t.

But I do believe if you’ve endured the slog of law school and come out with a JD, you’ve acquired a unique skill set that will allow you to do almost anything.

That includes having a career that’s more than just a job.

Whether you want to stay within the legal profession or not, I want you to discover what meaningful work is. And then start doing it.

I’m Annie Little, and I’m here to help you find your career calling.

As it turns out, being a lawyer is not my calling. So you can imagine my devastation when I realized just three years into practicing law that I couldn’t continue on my intended career path without jeopardizing my physical and mental health. I had reached my goal of becoming what most would call a successful attorney, but I had failed in finding work that was meaningful to me.

As miserable as I was, it wasn’t enough for me to entertain the possibility I was on the wrong career path. I had six-figure law school debt and a mortgage.

Oh, and no idea WTF I’d do if I weren’t a lawyer.

Instead of asking myself the tough questions and digging in to find the answers, I looked for ways to take my mind off my job. Exercising. Traveling. Drinking. Pinterest pinning. Your run-of-the-mill numbing activities.

I was ready to admit my career needed a major overhaul only after I became pregnant. Not only because my health had suffered (oh hi, two agonizing years of infertility), but because I couldn’t imagine my daughter knowing me as an attorney.

I didn’t want her to know me as an attorney.

I didn’t want to teach her it’s okay to trade her happiness for a career she hates just because she’s good at it or earns a hefty salary or doesn’t know what else to do. I wanted her to know she gets to decide what success looks like for her, and that it shouldn’t come at the price of her happiness.

I want the same for you, too.

Today, I have two careers. One feels effortless compared to being a lawyer. The other is the most difficult job I’ve ever had (spoiler alert: being a mom is HARD). And they both bring me more joy and meaning every day than I experienced in my entire legal career.

Yet in those gut-wrenching years of not knowing how or if I would ever find my calling, I never once considered being an entrepreneur/lawyer coach or a work-at-home mama. I was incapable of seeing anything beyond the shit in which I was mired — unwilling to address the limiting beliefs I had about what my life was supposed to be like.

But once the pain of continuing to work as a lawyer surpassed my fear of changing careers, I dove head-first into finding my calling. I read every book and blog about attorney career changes. I hired a life coach for a year-long program. I learned to let go of what was expected of me.

I figured out what success felt like for me.

Through my customized coaching programs, I help lawyers like you do the same. We work together to identify what’s holding you back, reconnect with what makes you tick and guide you toward a more meaningful career and life.

What makes my approach different? It’s not a one-size-fits-all game with me. No formulas, lock-step systems or quick-fixes here. (If that’s what you’re looking for, you don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.)

But if you’re looking for a program that meets you where you are, takes into consideration the unique pressures of being an attorney and works with you to create a balanced career-life strategy, we should talk.
