Why You Should Never Miss a Company Holiday Party or Invitation to Your Boss’s Home

"They're usually in their mid-30s and they are highly regarded and very skilled former associates or partners of midsized-to-large law firms who were essentially driven out because they couldn't work out a meaningful part-time arrangement. 'I was a star,' they tell me, 'and now I'm being viewed as a problem.' Eventually, they realize that they aren't problems; they're still stars. So I work with them to reorganize their practices so they can work their own hours."
"One of the reasons I withdrew from my partnership to work on a contract basis is that I was really tired of whiny clients. Whenever a former client would phone with a new problem, I'd automatically think to myself,' Oh God, now what's the matter?' I should have been happy clients were calling me. That's the name of the game. But I prefer it when I don't have to deal with them."
"I noticed in the first couple of days back at work that I had to rediscover my thinking and analytical processes and I was grateful that because of the temporary assignment my skills didn't get rusty. After a couple of months without a job, I also got bored. Unemployment wasn't fun anymore. The contract position got my mind off my nervousness."
