You snap at your spouse because of the stress, and you can barely remember who you are outside of the law. You want to make a career change, but your student loans and bank account have other plans. You're not alone, friend. Welcome to Wealthyesque! We are a community of lawyers who believe that true wealth is having control of our time. We're striving to live our lives in the way truly wealthy people do, and I want to help you do the same. I'm Rho Thomas, and as a busy wife, mom, and Biglaw associate, I know these common lawyer struggles all too well. I'm sharing what I've learned in working to overcome my struggles with you. This podcast explores how to achieve true wealth through lifestyle freedom. Although having money certainly helps, I've learned that mindset also plays into the equation. That's why each week, I'm sharing insights on mindset shifts and strategies you can use to achieve some of the control in your life you're seeking now and money tips and strategies to help you achieve financial independence, which gives you the ultimate freedom. We’ll talk about things like learning how to say “no,” making time for yourself, setting boundaries at work, managing your student loans, how to build wealth, and more.
