Life isn’t perfect. Things get in the way. Issues arise. Problems come up. Don’t let that dissuade you from following your dreams. 

As a trial attorney in Baltimore, Joe Volta focuses his practice on complex product liability litigation.  Additionally, he works with clients to handle a variety of cases that include general business concerns, auto and motorcycle negligence, wrongful death, truck accidents, and premises liability. 

On this week’s episode, Maria sits down with Joe at the MTMP Conference in Las Vegas. They discuss when it’s time to start your own firm, struggling with addiction, and showing vulnerability on social platforms. 

Key takeaways

  • Take the leap and start your own firm. Sometimes the best way to move forward is to take big chances. Joe turned down a great opportunity in order to take a risk and follow his passion. There may be a long road ahead, but his hard work has paid off. 
  • Addiction can be overcome. Don’t be afraid to seek help. A lot of people are dealing with similar circumstances. A good support system can turn your life around. 
  • Be vulnerable with your followers. People can tell when you’re not being honest with them. The best way to build an online following is to share the good as well as the bad. Let people learn from your past experiences.
