001: Escaping the Golden Handcuffs

Jun 2, 2023

If you’re a licensed professional, you probably understand better than most what it means to feel trapped by the golden handcuffs of working for someone else. You went to school for years and probably took out student loans to get where you are, but you don’t love what you do every day.

Being willing to take some risks can help you unlock those handcuffs. The discomfort is often where we find the most growth and opportunity.

In this inaugural episode of Private Practices in Maine, host and founder of The Malloy Firm in Auburn, Maine, Michael Malloy, outlines his background, why he became an attorney, and what he wants you to take away from the show.

This podcast is designed for you–the rare professional willing to get out there and take a chance.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • An introduction to Michael Malloy, the host of the podcast and a business lawyer in Auburn, Maine
  • His philosophy about attorney-client relationships and how intimate those relationships can be
  • His background as the child of a police officer/insurance agent and a labor and delivery nurse and how he eventually settled in Maine as an attorney
  • What he learned as he made connections in his community and where that led his legal career
  • Why he started his own practice in 2016 in his backyard and discovered his ideal clients
  • Michael’s experience during the pandemic as a cloud-based business and why it was the best thing that ever happened to his business
  • His goal for the podcast and what you can expect from it
