Life & Law Podcast

Tired of the mental exhaustion from trying to stay on top of everything, just barely squeezing life in? Want to get to the next level of your legal career without losing yourself in the process? Worried that balance isn't really possible as a lawyer? The problem is that you're likely doubling down on what you've been doing, which creates diminishing returns that will eventually burn you out. If you want success in both law and life, then it's time to start thinking and doing differently. Which is what this podcast is all about. Join Heather Moulder, former AmLaw 100 partner turned lawyer leadership and business coach for practical, no-nonsense advice on how become a happily successful lawyer. Because success without happiness isn't success at all. Tune in each week for Heather's wisdom and thought-provoking perspective (from over 18 years in private practice) on current topics such as: attorney wellbeing, stress management, mindfulness, law practice management, leadership development, emotional intelligence, client development, attorney promotion, legal marketing, and (of course) work life balance.
