Ep #123: How to Be Your Own Best Advocate

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How to Be Your Own Best Advocate

The topic of self-advocacy is one that’s especially important for women lawyers to consider. It’s a challenge that comes up often for my clients who are incredible advocates for everyone else in their lives but struggle to advocate for themselves. 


Whether it’s setting boundaries, charging your full rate, or anything else, the truth is you are a professionally trained advocate. You advocate for your clients, your children if you have them, and you may even be advocating for people you don’t know well. Now, it’s time to use those skills to begin harnessing your innermost powerful advocate.


Whether you’ve never practiced self-advocacy, want to refine this skill, or are only thinking about it for the first time today, this episode has got you covered. I’m showing you how you may be talking yourself out of self-advocacy, the cost of doing so, and an exercise that will help you get to know yourself better so you can begin stepping into self-advocacy.



I have created a group coaching program dedicated to supporting women lawyers, just like you, in your practice and your personal life. I’m going to help you create an even greater impact in your own life, and the lives of those around you. For more information, click here!
