Any legal professional can draft documents faster by using the features I teach, because they were created to make formatting easier.
The night in the office I never want to relive.
It was 9:30 at night, I was still sitting at my desk in the office. An hour commute away from home, and I couldn’t leave until a lengthy and painful document was edited and sent to a law firm. I had been working on this document for over three hours, and three sections, would not line up. No matter what I did, the text jumped all over the page, fonts and headings changed and the more I fussed… the more frustrated I became. Eventually leading to tears of exhaustion, and the compulsive feeling of wanting to throw my computer out the window.
I vowed in that moment that I wasn’t going to the be victim of my own work product ever again. The next day I signed up for a course, I purchased every pocket guide I could and I started practicing on the documents I created every day.
Then I noticed, after a week my frustration levels improved. I had more time to do the part of the work I loved, and spent less and less time fighting with the software. I could leave the office and take lunch without stressing out over the pile of documents I had to prepare, and even started showing other employees quick tricks and tips.
Before long, word spread and I started teaching Microsoft Word courses for lawyers. A few years later, I was a recruited to be a Practice Management Advisor for the Chicago Bar Association, teaching in house and for legal associations all over the country.
Every time I teach, the reward for me is the AH-HA! moment or gasp I hear when an audience member has a breakthrough. Heads nodding and laughter as I rename some of my favorite features are what I live for.
Now, my training courses are available in an online program: Wizardry in Microsoft Word. Which includes everything from a basic feature overview to advanced tools like using Styles, Tables and Design features.
No matter your skill level, I promise you will walk away with something new. Then, you’ll be the person in your office who can show co-workers a trick or two!
