    Wendeen Eolis was the ideal consultant to help me explore my personal motivation and refine my goals. She knows lawyers and knows exactly how to help them achieve a “next act” in their careers. In just a few days I got invaluable advice on how to pivot to where I want to be, and lots of not-so-obvious tips on effective networking. Her extensive vetting expertise was crucial in helping me create an authentic forward leaning profile consistent with my goals. Also, Wendeen is personally fascinating!
