As a licensed professional , you likely have a good understanding of the term “golden handcuffs”. After years of schooling and probably packing around significant student loan debt, you lack the passion for your daily work. However, embracing some risk can be the key to unlocking those handcuffs. It is through discomfort that we often discover tremendous personal growth and opportunities awaiting us on the other side.

In the debut episode of Private Practices in Maine, Michael Malloy, the host and founder of The Malloy Firm in Auburn, Maine, sets the stage by sharing his personal journey, his motivations for pursuing a legal career, and his ultimate goals for the show. Tailored specifically for people like you—those exceptional professionals who dare to step outside their comfort zones and embrace new opportunities—the podcast aims to inspire and empower, leaving you with a renewed sense of purpose.

 Michael shares:

  • His father was a police officer and independent insurance agent, which exposed Michael at an early age to what it means to go above and beyond for clients in a professional setting. Later, he was able to use his interest in business economics and professional service to go to law school and develop his career as an attorney.
  • This podcast is for professionals willing to step out of their comfort zones and take a chance. Michael wants you to find the courage to build the life that you want and deserve.
  • Creating a cloud-based business enabled Michael to keep his practice running without missing a beat when COVID hit. Other law firms were figuring out how to forward phone systems and teach their attorneys how to use word processors. Michael already had those systems in place and could continue operating uninterrupted.

If you’re feeling like a square peg in a round hole–as Michael once did–this podcast is here to help you find your courage and your tribe.
