She had a rocky start, but now two years in, she makes more than double her past income working for a firm. Kim talks to Kelsey about how she started as a freelancer and what advice she has for other professionals that are tired of not living the lives they want. A fascinating conversation about what being a freelancing lawyer looks like in the 21st century.
