In August 2016, losing a close friend left me devastated and I was ready to quit my solo practice and go back to working for BigLaw.
In June 2016, my business had finally started to turn around so I decided to start a podcast to share my journey. And by August 2016, I had recorded a couple of episodes, told a few friends, lined up guests and dropped $2k on a website and brand strategies.
When tragedy struck in 2016, I wanted to pack the whole thing up and move on, but I had already invested time and hard-earned money into this podcast, I figured, I’d just release the episodes – which I did in December 2016.
I had no intention of recording additional episodes and didn’t think anyone would listen. However, I wanted to finish what I started, so I released the episodes. Quitting my firm was still on my mind, so in January 2017, I sent out over 30 resumes – nothing come of them so I kept on with the podcast.
After releasing the podcast, I received so much support and feedback from friends and family (and random people!), it kept me going.
In this episode, I talk about how my podcast helped me find my voice, increase revenue in my business, allowed me to fulfill my mission of providing accessible legal services, and discover a community of black female entrepreneurs who have inspired me to keep going.
I was encouraged to release this episode because of my experience this past weekend at Brown Girls Love Power Day and Oprah’s acceptance speech at the 2018 Golden Globes Award.
Find out how my encounter with Oprah convinced me to leave my job and how finding my voice through my podcast has reignited my passion for the law and helping black women and other solopreneurs.
