Episode 76

Series: Well-Being in Legal

Episode Description:
Today, well-being should be at the top of every legal marketer's mind; however, prioritizing one's mental health often falls to the back burner. As a follow up to the recent Legal Marketing Mental Wellness survey conducted by fSquared Marketing, in partnership with the LMA, this LMA Podcast episode will focus on some of the reasons behind stress and mental well-being issues that were identified in the survey. Lynn Foley and Trish Lilley will share their experience and tips so legal marketers can lessen stress before it begins. They’ll also discuss why so many respondents (72%) felt that Legal Marketing is far more stressful than marketing in other industries.
