Spanx, Banks, Thanks

You may have read recently that Sarah Blakely is the youngest self made female billionaire in the USA. What has only just come to light is that she might instead have become a lawyer, like her father.

Story, via the ABA, here, and the full Forbes article here.

Heartwarming on a Friday afternoon? Certainly. But there is more to it. Realising that you are not really suited to a profession is an important thing to learn, the quicker the better. Going into the Law just because it can pay well can lead to stress and unhappiness (and nobody yet became a billionaire by setting up a law firm).

And there is life outside the Law.
