At the beginning of our open house this spring, our attorney Ashley gave a powerful speech about finding a larger purpose through your work. “When you find your passion, it no longer feels like a job or career. It becomes a lifestyle and part of your identity,” she shared. Her message hit home for all of us because it’s exactly how we feel at The Button Law Firm. In your life, and especially in your work, you get to choose the track you want to take. Some people are the punch in, punch out type, while others take pride in what they do. For folks in the latter category, their job is a lifestyle. You know these people, or maybe you are one of them. You go home and read books that help you get better at what you do. You wake up early to review your seminar notes before hopping on the treadmill. You go out of your way to help a client on the weekend. You go all-in for your job, not because you have to but because you want to. When you love what you do, it becomes part of your life. When you do what you love, it doesn’t feel like work. It helps to have a team full of people who share this mentality. Being surrounded by people who share your passion fuels you. Sure, we all get tired, and we all have off days. But when you’re living your passion, you see the upside even on the hardest days. The Button Law Firm is made up of folks like this: people who believe their purpose in life is more than just a 9-to-5. Each person has taken ownership of their life. We didn’t end up here by accident; we came here because we believe in what we’re doing for our clients, community, and people. We believe in what we do and why we do it. Our team members wear The Button Law Firm on their sleeves. IT’S A LIFESTYLE

At the end of the day, when our entire team approaches work this way, it makes hard times easier and good times more enjoyable. And it’s not just us who feel it; it extends to our clients and our co- counsel attorneys. You want to work with and be represented by a team like that.

Here is Ashley’s powerful takeaway on the subject.

“Finding your passion is just the first step. Finding the place that supports your passion, puts systems in place to support that passion, and feels the same way you do about it is the hard part. That was the journey I was on for a long time — finding the right home so that my passion never felt like ‘work.’ “Fortunately, two years ago, I found that here at The Button Law Firm. I can wholeheartedly say that every minute I spend doing what we do is another minute spent doing things the right way. Our whole team has this mentality. That isn’t to say we spend every waking moment practicing law, because we do not. We each have our lives, families, pets, and hobbies. Rather, when we wake up on Monday morning to show up, we aren’t showing up for work. We are just showing up for life. This is not a job — this is just who we are.”
