When all you have is the calling - helping people is enough. Hillary Walsh, owner of New Frontier Immigration Law, began her immigration law firm with few resources. In the early days, she pretended to be her own receptionist and would drive over three hours to avoid a twenty-dollar filing fee. Four years later her firm has grown to over 90 employees and she helps hundreds of families through the immigration process.
Today, we discuss how she learned the ropes of immigration law while in Korea - before the remote work revolution. We go over the tools and policies she uses to maintain culture with a fully remote team. We also get into how women can align work with menstrual cycles to unlock their superpowers and be more productive in the process.
