Karen Harris Named to Chicago Business Journal’s Women of Influence
Karen Harris, a partner in the Firm’s Health Care Practice, has been named to Chicago Business Journal’s 2018 Women of Influence. The Chicago Business Journal profiled a piece on each of this year’s 37 women. Karen’s profile discusses her career as a lawyer and her personal hobbies.
When asked what advice Karen would give to herself 10 years ago, Karen offered some insightful thoughts about the fear of failure.
“Don’t let fear rule your life! For a long time, I was so afraid that I wouldn’t do something perfectly that either I didn’t do it at all or I wasted so much energy being anxious while I tried to do it that it was much harder than it needed to be,” said Karen. “It took me a long time to realize that making a mistake isn’t the same thing as failing. Failing is being too afraid to try, a mistake is just learning as you go.”
