A Bizarre Take on the Spitzer Story

Several days ago, I suggested some career lessons we can learn from Eliot Spitzer so I couldn’t resist linking to this latest post by career “guru” Penelepe Trunk (I put the “guru” in quotations because she evokes both strong praise and equally strong criticism from her readers.) Penelope suggests that there are some good career lessons we can all learn from Spitzer’s call girl. Her choice of subject matter is truly bizarre; but I think she makes some good points that are relevant to lawyers (1. invest in yourself 2. know what you are selling and 3. if you do more than one thing–which is true for most lawyers–look for the synergies, e.g. practice bankruptcy and finance, M&A and general corporate, etc. )
