The Paralegal Profession: 5 Must-Have Qualities for Success

I especially like the most important quality:

“Exceptional reading and writing skills are necessary in the field of law. It is top priority for a paralegal to do their job accurately and communicate clearly. Ninety percent of your day may consist of proofreading court documents, reviewing medical records, and writing pleadings that are filed with the court. The tiniest mistake on a document, or a mistake in document review could cost a client their case, anger a judge, or have your boss screaming at you.”

Being an entrepreneur and CEO of my own company, I can truly understand the pressures that come along with the job. It takes a certain type of person to have the leadership and determination to steer away from the traditional path of working for someone else for the rest of your life, so they can live out their own dreams.

Not only do you need to have the utmost determination, passion and focus but you also need to be able to take the good with the bad. And in business, things can turn bad very quickly!

ImageIntellectual property, often known as IP, allows people to own their creativity and innovation in the same way that they can own physical property. The owner of IP can control and be rewarded for its use, and this encourages further innovation and creativity.
The ever increasing level of piracy and counterfeiting costs U.S. businesses substantial revenue annually.
