DEMANDING CLIENTS. NOT ENOUGH SUPPORT. MANAGEMENT HEADACHES. THE NEED TO BUILD YOUR OWN BOOK.
There are a million reasons why you feel as if you’ve lost your motivation as a lawyer… HOW DO YOU REGAIN IT?
Hey there, I’m Heather Moulder
From the outside looking in you’re a success. So, why do you so often find yourself thinking…
this can’t be all there is.
- Feeling like there’s never enough time to get everything done (you’re barely squeezing life in).
- Questioning whether you’re accomplishing much given your hair-on-fire-everything-is-an-emergency pace.
- Spending most of your time on things that aren’t all that important to you (and very little time on your actual priorities).
- Doubting whether what you want is even possible.
- Wondering what’s left to try (you’ve tried every productivity hack and time management trick in the book – clearly they aren’t enough).
Did you know that 74% of surveyed attorneys say the profession has had a negative impact on their mental health and 50% feel a decreased sense of accomplishment?
Statistics further show that over 60% feel overwhelmed, fatigued, and/or exhausted – with more than half reporting feeling stressed and/or anxious most of the time.
Nope, you are not alone.
The good news is you don’t have to live – or practice – this way.
After transforming from burned out to balanced, and then building a $2.5MM+ practice of my own (while navigating my way through 2 kids, the 2008 financial crisis & breast cancer), I realized I had created a customizable framework for balanced success as a lawyer.
And I’m on a mission to share it with you.
Recovering lawyer turned lawyer leadership & business coach (who practiced law for 18+ years).
According to my clients, I’m an insightful and compassionate (yet no-BS) coach AND advisor who is good at simplifying what feels complicated and helping you find the answers you are looking for. So that you can build the legal career and life you really want.
I traded in my $2.5MM practice to help lawyers build their ideal practice around the life they actually want (and quit the hustle-and-grind-paper-only-success lifestyle forever).
Although I enjoyed practicing law & built a business that provided a comfortable living, I was led in an unexpected direction after battling an aggressive breast cancer. It’s what ultimately led me here.
I’m here to help you accomplish the things you want as a lawyer AND person while staying true to yourself. And part of how I do that is through the Life & Law Podcast (because I am just one person and can’t work with everyone – nor does everyone want to work with a coach!).
My mission is simple. To help you:
- achieve more of what you want (while doing less),
- reignite the spark that made you choose the law in the first place, and
- make life and law fun again.
After practicing law for more than 18 years and building a thriving book of business from scratch, here’s what I know:
1. Being a lawyer isn’t what makes you who you are.
Yes, you chose to be an attorney for a reason. There was purpose (dare I say passion) behind it. And that’s important.
But it’s not all you are. You’re MORE than that. [I say this because too many lawyers seem to lose themselves over time].
The good news is that when you tap back into the things that make you uniquely you (such as your values and strengths), you can leverage them. And that makes life and law so much easier (and FUN). It also makes you more successful because you’ll be a better leader, communicator and lawyer too.
Win – Win – Win.
2. You MUST put yourself first if you want to be your best.
We lawyers are programmed to believe that we MUST put our clients above all else. Including ourselves.
But it’s a lie – and it’s killing us. [There’s a reason lawyers are more stressed, anxious, depressed and suicidal than the average person.]
The good news is that it’s not either/or. . . either take good care of yourself OR provide great service to your clients. By prioritizing your wellbeing, you’ll BE better (not just feel better). And that means that you’ll be a better parent, spouse, friend, colleague and (yes) lawyer.
Yet another win – win.
The Life & Law Podcast is going to show you how to take better care of YOU and reconnect to the spark that made you want to be a lawyer in the first place. So that you can achieve much more while doing less.
