Is it time to rethink success? Maybe you dream of buying a big house or you want to travel all over the world. Maybe you want to work fewer hours each week or you want to spend more time with your family. Lawyers have so many aspirations but for some reason, we tend to think that there is only one way to achieve those dreams – work ridiculously hard for many years and then eventually, acquire everything you want. Well, it’s time to get creative and smart with how we make our money and how we craft our dream lives.

If that’s what you want, then it’s time to opt out.

Joining me on the show today to explain what opting out means is attorney, entrepreneur, law professor, and LinkedIn Learning educator, Dana Robinson. Dana shares his proposal for a new way of achieving success and wealth which rely on three income pillars:

  • Establishing a side gig
  • Owning a business
  • Investing in real estate
