Jun 26, 2018

Many of you have expressed a desire to leave the 9-5 grind in order to chase a passion or adventure or to simply live a more fulfilled life. On today’s show I chat with a travel happy lawyer who did just that. Anjali Nowakowski is a former litigator, writer, editor, who is pursuing her travel dreams while running her own solo practice. We chat about what it’s like to travel full time, how to set up a virtual law firm, and dive into making decisions based on your own core values.


What you’ll learn:


  • About Anjali’s journey
  • What drove Anjali to her big transition into a more nomadic lifestyle
  • Things to consider before you make a transition
  • How to plan for a 6-month roadtrip across the US
  • How to start a virtual law firm
  • How to manage geographic limitations as a virtual lawyer
  • What a day in the life of Anjali looks like
  • Anjali’s decision making process
  • The importance of putting yourself first & making decisions based on your beliefs

Best Advice for Finding Happiness


“Taking the time to think about what will make you happy.”


“Get away from people trying to tell you what you need to do.”


“Following through is not that difficult, it’s just getting to a spot where you realize that other people's opinions of your life aren’t the way that you should be living your life.”
