Lessons in resilience from an Olympian-turned-lawyer
According to Hayder Shkara, world championship sporting rings and courtrooms actually have a lot more in common than one might think.
The former Olympian-turned-principal of Justice Family Lawyers joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show. He shares the story of his career in taekwondo and how his experience as a professional athlete forced him to develop resilience to failure.
Hayder explains what gave him the confidence to open up his own boutique practice six months after he competed in the Olympics, why he considers law to be a suitable alternate career for athletes, and provides advice for anyone wanting to start their own firm.
