What others say
about us

In a field obsessed with prestige, Bridgette and Vivek teach you to ask instead: How will this fuel me? Following their life model professionally has encouraged me to open doors I didn’t know existed. More importantly, though, it’s oriented me towards hope and cheer in an often grueling profession

I can’t imagine how stale my legal life would be without Bridgette and Vivek. Every lesson is filled with warmth, resilience, gratitude, humor, reflection, community, and growth. Bridgette and Vivek are unconditional allies for everyone they work with and they leave a lasting impact.

It was an excellent opportunity to examine my values and strengths and think critically about how I can plan a career that aligns with them.

With Bridgette and Vivek’s support, I was able to pivot away from what I was told I should want in a legal career to what alights my fire, gives me joy, and aligns with my values. The visualization exercise in particular helped me see that a fulfilling career was just one aspect to a happy, meaningful life
