There don’t seem to be many online resources geared specifically toward lawyers who are interested in pursuing financial independence or increasing life satisfaction, but here are a few that I’ve come across: Biglaw Investor and Thoughts of an Anonymous Lawyer. I also recently came across a podcast and blog with a catchy title, Lessons from a Quitter, by a former lawyer-turned-entrepreneur.
