Sep 4, 2018

We all know that lawyers are great at persevering but what happens when it’s time to call it quits? There are times when we struggle with whether to stop a small project and times we grapple with whether or not it’s time to make a big career change. This episode will hopeful help you through those daunting times. On today’s show I chat with Goli Kalkhoran, a former lawyer turned entrepreneur and host of "Lessons from a Quitter". Goli shares lessons that she’s learned from her interviewees and we explore tips and strategies for knowing the difference between struggling with accomplishing something worth accomplishing and when it’s time to say enough is enough. Enjoy!


What you’ll learn:

  • How Goli got into the law and why she got out of it
  • What Goli’s transition out of the law looked like
  • Strategies for figuring out whether to persevere or pivot
  • The importance of listening to your own intuition
  • Keys to scheduling goals for your new endeavors
  • When to be introspective and when to seek outside advice
  • Tools to foster happiness in your life

Best Advice for Finding Happiness


“Agency, if you have made that choice and where you want to be, you can find happiness in that.”


“Once you are more intentional about what you are doing...that’s what leads to happier lawyers.”
