Jenny: I’m a corporate lawyer which means I help clients with starting, organising, buying and selling businesses and companies
Jackie: Guess that means you’re pretty busy keeping up-to-date with things – any time for reading biz books?
Jenny: Not a lot! But I’ve been reading Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg recently. She has some interesting insights for women in business
Also Mothers Work, which has some great tips for working mums, particularly “get a grip on guilt”!
Jackie: guilt, is that something u find difficult Jenny?
Jenny: There’s always that nagging worry that working mums have that we’re not being good enough mums or not doing a good job (or both!)
Jackie: What keeps u awake at night with excitement re your biz
Jenny: Working with start ups – it’s really rewarding to help set up a business and then see them through to investment and sale
Jackie: Do u have something u’d like to promote with us?
Jenny: Every small business should make time for a legal health-check once in a while, even if they don’t use a lawyer for it
Look at your key assets, contracts and relationships to check everything is in order and spot issues before they arise
