36; Attorney, Barrow & Grimm, PC; Co-Founder and General Counsel, Marshall Brewing Company; Tulsa
Adam’s inspiration for specializing in business law came after watching his mother begin, grow and manage a successful small business. Family also inspired his second career as the vice president of Marshall Brewing Company, which also takes advantage of his legal opinions.
“Some people live to work and others work to live,” Adam says. “Both orientations can produce successful careers, but I prefer the latter. A diligent work ethic, while valuable, can only get you so far. Satisfaction and happiness with your life and career should be the ultimate goal. In reality, satisfaction and happiness will ebb and flow from time to time; however, if you honestly enjoy waking up and doing whatever it is you call work, chances are you are following a career and life path that is right for you.”
