Welcome to the The Shingle Life! I’m so excited to finally launch my newest passion project. Starting my law firm a couple of years ago was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. The passion was there and some resources were there, however, starting a new business has a HUGE learning curve. One think I learned very quickly is that being a small business owner is a very lonely road. I was lucky to have a couple of people to call on every now and then, but for the most part, a lot of what I did was trial and error. Some things worked and some things didn’t.
But during this process, something happened: friends and colleagues started to contact me to help then set up their new business. I walked them through the actual steps, gave them general advice about running their business and warned them about common pitfalls.
After doing this a few times and talking to a couple of friends who had started their own business, I realized two things: (1) I really enjoyed helping others start off on the right foot and (2) there is a need for an honest and open dialogue for the difficulties in starting a new business as well as place for new entrepreneurs to get advice and information about starting and growing a successful business.
So, I decided to start a podcast! It’s my hope to provide you with tips, strategy, and guidance on how to run, grow and MAINTAIN a successful business.
My goal is to post a new episode every two weeks. I hope you’ll tune in and listen. I also want to hear about your experiences and what systems have worked for you.
In this FIRST EPISODE, I talk about what lead me to start my own law firm and why I decided to start this podcast. Enjoy!
