Corinne Heggie: Empowering Women to be Successful in Law with Balance

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Corinne Heggie discuss:

  • Advocating for yourself from early in your career.
  • Finding success without losing the balance in your life.
  • Fitting business development into your day-to-day activities.
  • Turning the friendzone into business success.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn to ask for what you want. “No” is just “no right now” not “no forever.”
  • Ultimately, nobody cares as much about your success and career trajectory as you.
  • There is no barrier to entry. You enter where you are, where you feel comfortable, and where you feel authentic, because that’s where you’re going to be able to do your best work and connect with people.
  • Having your own clients is a complete game changer, both if you are a solo practitioner and if you are a big law firm.


“If you have your own clients, you have a little bit more flexibility with how your day is gonna look.” —  Corinne Heggie
