Adam Kol: Tax Lawyer Turned Couples Financial Counselor

In Episode 031 of The Former Lawyer Podcast, I’m sharing my conversation with Adam Kol. Adam practiced tax law before leaving to become a couples financial counselor. In this conversation, Adam shares about: The way that the expectations of others drove him to law school; Quitting his tax lawyer job at Deloitte to spend a year as an animal activist supported by his savings; Working at a non-profit as a lawyer supporting initiatives to combat homelessness; Why he started coaching people as a side hustle; How his life got out of balance and how he identified what needed to change; How getting laid off spurred him to focus on his coaching practice full-time; Stumbling into the niche of couples financial counseling; Seeing his clients’ lives change when they are able to communicate about money and problem-solve regarding their money together; Dealing with loved ones’ disappointment and anger about leaving his legal career; His advice on how to start a conversation about money for lawyers who have a partner and are wanting to make a career change; and much more!  Show Notes: Free on-demand 5-Day Career Clarity Bootcamp—g formerlawyer.com/bootcamp Former Lawyer Fundamentals—g formerlawyer.com/fundamentals Connect with Adam on his website, LinkedIn, Instagram, or listen to his podcast, The Equal Partners Podcast
