Jessica Kinny on the Mindset for Taking Leaps of Faith and Running Your Own Legal Practice
Do you feel unhappy in your current role but unsure if the situation is fixable or not? This week’s guest on Beyond Billables has been in exactly that same situation and shares her insights on how to navigate uncertain waters.

Jessica works with start-ups, high net worth individuals, SMEs, ASX-listed companies and not-for-profit organisations. She’s an experienced commercial litigator and business lawyer, and a recognised aged care and retirement law specialist.
