The interview with Inspirery starts off with the attorney crediting his success to forming a trusting relationship with all his clients as compared to other lawyers who have a cut and dry approach. He gets to know his clients by going to social events and while on the job. He states that he is multifaceted and that he earns his money from doing multiple duties such as consulting and working for various companies. He recounts that all of this helped him in creating his own business in the long run. Goldstein does not see money as a true sign of success as he mentions that planning for the future is equally as important. The attorney reflects that he had doubt on the journey, which he believes is normal but that he trusted himself and saw each opportunity as a way to improve. He remembers that his first client came from referral and that unfortunately many starting out don’t realize how great that can be. The lawyer believes that marketing can be an effective tool for acquiring business but to stay away from any negative attention as it can have an impact on anyone’s career. He lists that his perspective is his greatest strength and that he loves working with the Fountain House Organization helping others. He shares that when recruiting new individuals that he looks for experience over personality and recommends the novel called “Made to Stick” that has helped him a lot in his career.
