On this encore episode of the Passive Income Attorney podcast, Seth is joined by financial coach and big law attorney Rho Thomas as they discuss how student debt and the golden handcuffs can become anchors that not only weigh you down financially, but also prevent you from exploring your passions for fear of debt repayment. Rho, who scratched and clawed her way out of massive student debt, helps other lawyers make intentional lifestyle and money decisions to regain control of their time, build wealth, and live with freedom and choice, as she believes that true wealth is having control of your time. Enjoy!

“Make sure that you are paying attention and being intentional with your life because it’s easy to get caught up living life on autopilot. Take some time to think about the life you actually want to live, then make a plan to get there.”


Here’s a breakdown of what to expect in this episode:

  • A look into the practice of being a trademark lawyer before and during the pandemic.
  • Strategies to find balance between work, play, family, and yourself.
  • How having a financial coach can help you start making changes to pay off debt.
