Earlier this year, Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Erica Vick was named one of the Nashville Business Journal’s 2019 Women of Influence recipients. This year’s list included 44 Middle Tennessee women who are making a difference in the community.

Throughout the year, the publication has profiled each of the 44 women. As part of Erica’s profile, she answered the following questions:

  1. What is the most common mistake women make in business, and how would you overcome it?
  2. What is your biggest pet peeve in the workplace?
  3. What is the worst advice you were ever given, and what did it teach you?
  4. What is the best book you’ve read recently?
  5. What impact has Nashville’s growth had on you and/or your company?
  6. What was your first job?
  7. What is a must-have college course for business leaders?
  8. What has been your hardest lesson learned?
  9. What is a surprising thing women still deal with in the workplace?

Erica’s responses can be found in the article, “Women of Influence: Erica Vick; Bass, Berry & Sims PLC,” published on October 3, 2019, by the Nashville Business Journal.
