Having a small firm or solo practice means that you have to take extra steps to make sure you have proper work life balance. However, in such practices, your options are limited when an emergency or a critical new matter comes up during a planned vacation or break. Scott talks about how a new matter arose during his vacation that required him to leave his family to travel back to NY to handle the matter. The hosts discuss the importance of understanding that some situations cannot be controlled for and your personal life needs to adjust to the realities of the practice. Running your own law practice is not for the faint of heart – it will challenge your time, energy and persona life. That being said, it is important to schedule vacation and time off in order not to resent your practice and in order to avoid burn-out. The key is to be organized and try your best to free up your schedule at least twice a year for some time off
