On this week’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer Podcast, we speak with Pamela DeNeuve, Founder of Pamela DeNeuve, Lawyer & Law Firm Peak Performance Strategist. Although Pamela is not a lawyer herself, she’s spent more than 38,000 hours helping lawyers become better business owners. She specializes in working with attorneys who are experiencing challenges or transitioning their careers, teaching them to fire their inner child and step, as adults, into leadership.

Pamela says, “When someone comes to work with me, the first thing I want to know is what makes them tick. I want to know what coping skills they have, what have they overcome, and what kind of basic operating principle they have developed. And I’ll tell you, when we find out what their basic operating principle is, what they overcame, and how they won or how they lost, we find it’s exactly in their law practice today.”

We chat about Pamela’s journey as a personal coach, as well as:

  • Why anxiety and trauma are common among legal professionals

  • Why female lawyers often take on more than they should for clients

  • How trauma can put a cap on your entrepreneurial vision

  • The effects of societal racism on mental and emotional health

  • And more
