This week I sat down with Charlotte's own Annemarie Pantazis. This interview is particulary special to me, not only because Annemarie has been a great friend and mentor to me, but because she is the perfect example of someone that made the difficult decisions everyday to put their future self first.
Long before she was an acclaimed workers' compensation attorney, at the tender age of seventeen she was cutting her teeth in a small law firm in her hometown. It was then that she decided that she was going to own her own law firm. Although she encountered hardships and failures along the way, she never lost sight of that goal.
Not only did she make good on that promise to herself, she's compiled a laundry list of impressive accolades along the way including: Captaining the rugby team at Willian & Mary, published Editorial Staff member of the Wake Forest University Law Review, Charlotte Business Journal's Top 40 Under 40, lecturing nationally on the Affordable Care Act, as well as authoring numerous publications including the aptly named Amazon Best Seller Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Influential Women in Business. (Annemarie is giving away five copies this week, listen to the episode for details.)
Outside her day job as one of the premier workers' compensation attorneys in the state, Annemarie is a treasure to the Charlotte community, regularly mentoring young professionals, sponsoring community events, and being a great cheerleader for the city of Charlotte.
Some of my favorite highlights of the episode include:
This interview was a lot of fun for me, and it's one of the most value packed episodes I've ever recorded. I'll see you back here next week where we'll be getting the skinny from Yelp's highest-rated food service in Charlotte, and one of the most genuine and funny people you'll ever meet, Vic "The Chili Man" Werany.
