I come from a large family. I’ve got four siblings. I’ve also got lots of first, second, third and so on cousins.
It amazes me when I think how well almost everyone in my family has done for themselves. No one is rich or rolling in dough, but I think just about every of my siblings and cousins has taken on a professional career or started a business of their own.
What made me think of this is that while all of us pretty much do different things from one another two of my cousins became lawyers. I just discovered that both are listed in the American Lawyer Referral lawyer directory. Pretty cool huh?
I’m not going to list their names since I try to keep my maiden name private and uh their last names are the same as one of my current names so I’m not listing it here. I am happy for them that they were listed though. Hopefully they’ll get some new clients out of their listings.
Funny that there’s only two lawyers, one doctor and one nurse (me) in the family. The rest are chemists, biologists, geologists and so on. Mostly scientists of one type or another and a few artists mixed in here and there to keep it interesting.
How has your extended family faired?
