On today’s Performance Mindset podcast, Amy interviews her friend Bill Umansky. Bill has been running a criminal and personal injury practice in Orlando since 1997. His team consists of 25-30 employees, including virtual assistants who are full-time and criminal trial lawyers. Bill no longer practices law and has taken on the role of leadership at the firm, motivating, leading, and rainmaking cases.

Amy and Bill have a lively conversation, covering everything from Bill’s passion for food and cooking to approaching everything with moderation. Bill shares his first impression of Amy when they met years ago, staying fit as he gets older, and he explains why growth and scalability as an entrepreneur don’t always mean going bigger. Amy and Bill wrap up their conversation with a discussion on work-life balance, accountability, and why playing poker is a lot like life.
