Episode #40: Wendi Weiner – The Writing Guru, Lawyer Turned Award-Winning Writer

Wendi Weiner, The Writing Guru, Attorney, Career Branding Expert, and Resume Writer joins the show to share how she transitioned from a decade-long law career to her own writing business. Wendi and I connected over social media and I was super intrigued by her background. It takes a ton of courage to start your own business – and even more to leave behind a law career when you do it. Wendi is one of the most genuine, intelligent, helpful, and kind people you’ll ever hear from and truly opened up about her ups and downs in this interview. This episode covers everything from the importance of personal branding to how running the NYC Marathon changed Wendi’s life. Here’s a small sample of what you will hear in this episode:

  • How being bullied as a child gave Wendi thick skin
  • Why she chose writing and entrepreneurship over law
  • How a background in law can translate to the business world
  • Tips to improve your resume and LinkedIn profile
  • How to grow your Instagram following and engagement through storytelling
  • The pros and cons of working from home
  • How riding Peloton can help you stay creative
  • Wendi’s favorite U2 song
