To The Readers of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

Napoleon Hill, an author of personal success literature, once said, “Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.” With a new year comes a new opportunity to make positive changes in your life and career. Think about the steps you want to take in 2013 to take charge of your career. Are you looking to network, enhance your skills and build your knowledge, or get involved in a group of like-minded professionals?
