Sometimes we deeply desire more freedom. But at the same time we also fear it, because we’re not sure what to do with it once we have it. In the same way, we often self-sabotage and stand in our own way because the consequences of success are also scary. 


In this episode of the “Do the Impossible” podcast, trial lawyer Brian Glass discusses the growth and expansion of his practice, including his struggle with delegating tasks and overcoming founder's guilt. He seeks coaching on how to delegate without interfering or criticizing, and compares his profession to coaching, enjoying the challenge of these roles. Today, I coach him on how to get out of his own way, optimize his business, and how to trust the process of where his business is going.
