Attorney and Entrepreneur Valerie Del Grosso shares how she has created a life and business that is more fulfilling since shifting her focus from achievement to alignment.

“I had to get over my own BS and start calling myself out and taking totally different action, in large part, by relying on business coaches and other people who could hold the vision for me and help me take the steps to get toward it.”

-Valerie Del Grosso


Valerie Del Grosso is in our mastermind this year. She’s an incredible woman who has created two amazing businesses and yet like many times throughout her life, she’s found herself feeling unfulfilled.

Today we’re talking to Valerie about what happens when we’re focused on achievement instead of alignment. This is the real truth about what happens for those of us who are super driven to go to the next level. We forget about our heart and what it is we actually want and what brings us joy in the process.

Valerie talks about the importance of getting comfortable having frank conversations with yourself and looking at the reflection in the mirror. This has allowed her to accept and identify harsh truths, and then move on from them.


  • How the need for instant gratification or immediate feedback can cause us to question our work and our path
  • Where achievement differs from alignment
  • How Valerie got out of her own way
  • Why you need to be willing to accept help to reach your goals
  • How to make the shift from hard work and achievement to ease and joy
  • You can recalibrate to find that thing that is going to bring you joy along the journey instead of waiting for it until you reach your end goal or retirement.


Valerie Del Grosso isn’t your typical stuffy lawyer – she refuses to “over-lawyer” a problem or drag it out to earn fees. Easy to understand (and implement) legal solutions that create value are her signature.

Valerie is also a dedicated entrepreneur and knows personally the heart and soul required to build a business that loves you back. She has been practicing law for twelve years and owns her own practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she regularly serves clients ranging from tiny businesses to household names.

Valerie has gone toe-to-toe with “fancy” and super-experienced attorneys (sometimes whole teams) and can be found in court at least weekly seeing how different approaches pan out when the chips are down. That is, Valerie is willing to stand up for her work in court, not just hide behind a desk dishing out theoretical advice.

In her personal life, Valerie is married to a total dreamboat, though you may never meet him and will wonder if he truly exists. They have a cute new baby, too! She has traveled to about 20 countries and recently took up Olympic lifting as a hobby.
