Joe Brocato: Happiness and Authentic Relationships

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Joe Brocato discuss:

  • Pursuing your passions, belief in yourself, and having a determination to succeed. 
  • Living authentically with balance in your work and passions.
  • Conveying confidence.
  • The three pillars of relationships.


Key Takeaways:

  • If you want to have a great book of business, you need to be a great lawyer first.
  • Be who you are and have confidence in your ability and your desire to help your clients.
  • You can be nice and be friends without needing to make a networking connection with everyone. Make a friend, but don’t feel obligated to sit with someone for longer than you want.
  • Bring your authentic self into relationships. When you are that way, you are also able to set authentic goals – which makes you more likely to achieve it, and more likely to enjoy the process.


“If you come into the relationship confident and upbeat, in a sincere way, because you truly are authentically happy, I think it really helps. It helps in your business development efforts.” —  Joe Brocato
