Ann Lawrence is a partner at DLA Piper, one of the world’s largest law firms. Over the course of her career, she noticed how few women became partners, so she tapped her entrepreneurial side and set out to make a difference, for the law field and beyond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“When I was in law school, we were told that the reason there weren’t very many female partners was because fewer women had gone to law school … but when I realized that wasn’t the case, I knew I had to do something,” Lawrence says. “It’s not just that women are opting out, but also that they’re running into the glass ceiling.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So Lawrence and a group of friends launched Pink51, a company whose mission was to promote businesses that were either 50 percent owned by women, or whose executives or boards were at least 20 percent female. Pink51’s website listed these companies in one place so that consumers could more easily find them and purchase their products and services.
The number of businesses that joined grew to the thousands, and Lawrence and her friends quickly realized that the site required full-time attention. Ultimately, Lawrence chose to wind the business down to focus on her law practice, but the endeavor was invaluable. “It was a necessary learning experience that has made me a better lawyer and strategist,” Lawrence says. “I love seeing how many women are becoming advocates for each other.” #SpendLifeLiving

Just 3 years ago, after an injury, trade and disappointing season, Nick Foles considered retiring from the NFL. And on Sunday, he led the @philadelphiaeagles to their first-ever Super Bowl victory — and was named #SuperBowl52 MVP. With this historic win under his belt, Nick is proof that overcoming obstacles is possible — and necessary to achieving great success.

Kinh DeMaree was working at Facebook as an engineering recruiter when the company went public. After the IPO, she decided to sell her stock so she could start a new adventure: a year of travel and business networking that would take her around the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She spent most of her time in the Middle East and Asia, mixing personal travel with mentoring and connecting with tech entrepreneurs. She volunteered with the State Department’s TechWomen program, and joined 500 Startups’ Geeks on a Plane tour of up-and-coming tech cities. Though she paid for the trips on her own, Kinh considers her money well spent — it was like getting an informal MBA! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After her year was up, she returned home to start the next chapter: consulting with companies as a tech recruiter and career coach. She looks back on her time off as life-changing. “Freedom isn’t just about having enough money or being financially secure,” she says. “It’s also about giving yourself the option to live life on your own terms.” #SpendLifeLiving
