Mike pens a monthly career advice column in Corporate Counsel magazine.

Check out his most recent columns in Corporate Counsel (law.com). He discusses what really matters when it comes to titles. He gets touchy-feely pontificating about the value of time.

If you have any topic ideas you would like to see addressed in a future column, please send ideas and suggestions to [email protected].
