Legal Life Lesson: NEVER, EVER stop learning.

Introduction: What Should You Take Away?

It’s simple. The take away is NEVER, EVER stop learning. As a business owner, it’s easy to think we are experts in our field and that we have reached the pinnacle of our success or learning abilities. But NOTHING could be further from the truth. I have four (4) degrees and I continuously set aside time each week to learn something new about either business or law. It’s refreshing and it keeps me on the cutting edge of what’s going on in my field. As a matter of fact, one of KLP’s corporate values is “continuous education” and that is why we have started to offer training classes for business organizations and groups.

My Story [based on my Firm or other business owners’ stories]

I have served on several non-profit boards. It is AMAZING how many non-profit boards (and corporate boards) do not understand that there is a LEGAL responsibility imposed on every Board member, non-profit or not, under the law. That’s why I prepared an audio powerpoint presentation to help start the discussion and guide board members about their legal responsibilities. It can be viewed at and provides a helpful start to training in this area. KLP does offer in person classes and training that can be found under our “Business Legal POWER Session & Training” section on our website at There are also other audio powerpoint presentations on a variety of business and legal topics on our slideshare account you should take a look at to empower yourself and your organization.

Example of how KLP lives up to its corporate value of “continuous education”:

**The “Legal Life Lessons” Series was started by Attorney Kendrick in 2012 as a way to showcase real life legal situations that either she has experienced or those within her networks have experienced. The goal is to move away from boring, white paper style discussions about the law and focus on creating comfortable conversations about real experiences in the life of Georgia business owners.**
