Ep 10: Lawyer v Choices

Ep 10.jpeg

Sarah Holloway, co-founder of Matcha Maiden

As Sartre once observed, “we are our choices”.  We can face many difficult decisions throughout our career in law, such as whether to enter a new area of practice, undertake further study or change jobs.

Nat and Jenn discuss how to make difficult career decisions including the benefits of values-based decision making, differentiating internal and external motivators and addressing cognitive biases. They explore their very different approaches to decision making – evidence based practice versus gut instinct! 

Jenn chats with Sarah Holloway, former commercial lawyer turned entrepreneur, about the courageous decisions that led her from the law to co-found wellness business Matcha Maiden.
