Would you apply to 18 law schools? Attorney Katherine Myers Wilson did. She applied to 18, was accepted by 15, rejected by 3, which included the one she really wanted to attend...the one her friend was accepted to. Attorney Myers has had a long career in the legal industry including working with the South Carolina Supreme Court and is no stranger to fighting for the rights of others in and out of the courtroom. She has transitioned from working with lawyers to launching her own business, Myers Law Firm. In this interview with J Haleem, Attorney Myers gets candid about her entrepreneurship journey, building her own table, and the importance of leaving a living legacy.
