As I continued to perform Google searches about paralegals and surf the net, I came across Vicki Voisin, The Paralegal Mentor. I quickly learned that Vicki is a leader in the paralegal profession. She has many years of experience, roots with NALA, and she is a published author. Her newsletter is called Strategies for Paralegals Seeking Excellence. I signed up and continued to explore her background. Vicki works in a small town law office, but somehow she had managed to transform her paralegal career into something bigger than “just the J.O.B.”
I learned that Vicki hosts The Paralegal Mentor Monthly Mastermind conference calls for paralegals on various topics of interest. Did I mention the calls are F.R.E.E? Did I mention the calls are held in the evening so you do not have to miss work? Did I mention there are great guest speakers with Q&A opportunities to interact with the speakers?
As I began participating in the monthly calls I began to connect with other paralegals who were striving for excellence in their profession. As the date neared for me to take the NALA certification exam, I received a postcard from Vicki wishing me luck. How in the world did she find time for that?!!
I believe that postcard was what triggered my desire to learn from Vicki’s professional experience. I wanted to follow her more closely. Maybe if I started doing some of the things Vicki — and other successful paralegals — are doing, then maybe some of that success would rub off on me, inspire me and motivate me. I guess I’m talking about the Law of Attraction. Surround yourself with what you want to become, and you will get there quicker.
