Executive Q&A


How do you continue to grow and develop as a business leader? 

Nicole Donoian-Pody Esq., Partner, Charny Karpousis Altieri & Donoian, P.A.

“Lawyers are not typically trained to lead a business. When Karen [Karpousis], Michelle [Altieri] and I acquired the firm I was nervous as there were so many things I did not know about running a business. To educate myself, I sought advice from other business owners that I knew and respected. I learned quickly you have to be able to handle, amongst other things, personnel issues, financial issues, strategic planning all while practicing law. Four years later, I continue to grow and develop by talking with my business partners, calling other business leaders for advice and reading books and articles that offer tips for successfully running a business.”
