In my monthly series, CEO Corner, we ask local business leaders to share their advice in a short & sweet Q&A.

This month, we’re spotlighting Manotti Jenkins, who leads his own law firm operating in DC and Chicago. Manotti is a former partner in major U.S. corporate law firms and was a first-chair litigator and trial attorney in those firms.

Proudest accomplishment: Becoming a father to 4 beautiful daughters.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received: Just try your best to be nice to people.

Favorite time management technique: Multitasking.

Biggest mistake you’ve ever made and what you learned from it: Squandering money when I made lots of it; I learned to think forward and invest for the future.

How you stay motivated: Try to keep God first and recognize that everything will be fine if I do my part.

How you find balance in your life: Seize opportunities to just relax and spend time doing mindless stuff.
