On Using Apex Habits to Change your Life and Career with Marco Brown


On today’s show I have the amazing opportunity to chat with Marco Brown, managing partner of his own firm Brown Law and one of the top recognized divorce lawyers in the US. Like many of us, Marco struggled in the law during his first few years and lost motivation and joy. We chat about how he used the idea of apex habits to focus on developing habits that changed his life, how he identified his own habits, and how they impacted his health, wealth, and happiness. Enjoy!


What you’ll learn: 


  • Marco’s journey in the law
  • Things to expect when starting out as a solo practitioner
  • How to find your law niche
  • How to discover your Apex habits
  • Beginning steps of rediscovering your happy




  1. How do you manage overwhelm?
  2. What boundary have you set to prioritize your own happiness?
  3. A mindset shift that changed your life?
  4. Name a book that has inspired your journey.
  5. What do you think separates lawyers who are happy to lawyers who struggle to find happiness in life with a law degree?
