1. When did you first realize that you wanted to write a book, and why did you choose the topic of financial planning for lawyers?
By way of background, I sold my practice and left the firm at the end of 2009 in order to devote myself to a full-time career as a professional speaker, author, and attorney business coach. As a practicing attorney, I spoke and wrote extensively in my area of expertise and absolutely loved speaking and writing. However, I had not yet written a book. Because my practice area was estates and elder law, I learned a great deal about the financial planning process. I wanted to capture the knowledge while still fresh in my mind and thus chose that particular topic. Significant research was of course required.
