Does anyone have ex-legal plans once you’ve got a few years of biglaw under your belt? I’m 2 years in and feeling very lost (unsure of long-term goals, unfulfilled by corporate law, and generally wishing I had more of a personal life/better health). Would love to hear what others are considering on the flip side!

Read the book called lifestyle investor. I am using this high cash salary to buy cash flowing assets. I want to stay in big law long enough to accumulate assets that will spit out enough money that I don’t need this kind of job. I just did my first real estate deal and get checks in the mail every month and it has changed my entire perception on law and life.

How? DM me if you want to talk and exchange plans. Considering this seriously.

I do not, but I'm more than 2 decades in, and am "small law" (6 person firm). My favorite story from a former colleague was their efforts/success in going into the artisan distilling business.

Might start a real estate agency or at least become an agent

How do lactation consultant’s work via insurance? How do you work with them? Virtual or in person? My insurance provided a list of consultants who apparently live close by. After looking up everyone, they all have located elsewhere and/or only do virtual consultations. I was expecting an in-person service.
