Welcome back. Today, we’re taking a little bit of a detour to talk about entrepreneurship. Or, maybe it’s not such a detour, given the number of lawyers who end up creating solo practices or small firms, or who leave the law entirely to start new businesses!

If you are looking to start your own business or create a side hustle, tune in! 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why everyone should think of themselves as an entrepreneur, even if they have a steady paycheck
  • Why every BigLaw lawyer should read The 4-Hour Workweek
  • Lee and Alison discuss their paths to entrepreneurship
  • Why it might be a terrible idea to build a business around what you love to do
  • Strategies for getting your business or side hustle off the ground
  • How technology can make it easier to start a new business
  • Books that we found helpful on the entrepreneurial path
  • When it makes sense to work with a business or life coach
  • Resources for raising funding for your new endeavor
  • Why community matters if you want to be an entrepreneur (and how to build your community)
