In Episode 59 of Lawyerpreneur, I talked with Norman Bacal and M.C. Sungaila in what felt very much like an extraordinary after-dinner conversation. We discussed the importance of teaching the business of law practice to the next generation of lawyers, and how they teamed up to write a series of articles for The American Lawyer on that topic. We talked about the current climate of lawyers changing firms, which is something that I’ve done within the last six months.
But my favorite part of our conversation was about failure. It’s something that is both stressful and inevitable. And both Norman Bacal and M.C. Sungaila shared insights about finding success on the far side of their failures.
For more from Norman Bacal, check out his TedX talk, “Become the Person You Can’t Imagine.” You can also read his most recent book, Take Charge: The Skills That Drive Professional Success.
M.C. Sungaila also has a series of inspirational books that you won’t want to miss. And be sure to listen Episode 16 of Lawyerpreneur in which M.C. and I talk about developing your business and your reputation.
