You guys, I am so excited about this episode. Ali Assareh is an M&A attorney at Clorox, and let’s just think about the image right there. An M&A lawyer at a Fortune 500 company. I don’t know about you but I picture this buttoned-up person, stern, keeps their head down, all about the rules, deadlines, perfection, no typos. But Ali is not like that. He writes about mentorship, grief, and in this episode, he talks about couples therapy. One of my favorite quotes from this episode: What if people loved you more as a result of knowing about that one thing you want to keep from them? We have so much fear about being the human being behind the lawyer title because we believe that they are going to judge us. But what if they loved us more for it? That is the possibility that Ali and I are all about, and we talk about how that makes us fit to practice.
