Growing an Authentic Practice & Life

Hi, I’m Dhawal (pronunciation: 🔉). I’m a Canadian living in Texas.

I write about how lawyers and other knowledge workers (accountants, consultants, and other professional service providers) can build authentic practices in their career and lead a life they love.

I lead growth at Renno & Co, one of the fastest growing law firms in the web3 space in North America. I work in the decentralized world of blockchain, NFTs, metaverses and technology. I founded Build Your Book to help lawyers and law firms from around the world to create meaningful change in how they build an authentic, balanced, and thriving practice.

I am mostly interested in answering 4 Big Questions about affecting societal change, personal change, relationship abundance and creating better narratives for the future.
