Enneagram 7, type A as they come (hello Lawyer)... I live for my fam & friends, traveling, and coffee. Also love bubble baths, a glass of wine, and am always in leggings.
ONCE UPON A TIME
I knew pretty quickly that law firm life wasn’t for me. I had always been a big traveler, craved adventure, and wanted life outside 4 walls. I knew I was different but just didn’t know why (sound familiar?).
The only thing I REALLY knew in my core was that I wanted the FLEXIBILITY & FREEDOM to work from anywhere, including a coffee shop, the beach, or Thailand.
Finally, back in 2012, I learned that there were people doing this! I knew immediately in my heart that this was my future. I had no idea how to get it but just knowing there were people like me out there was such a huge step.
I spent the next few years building online businesses, consulting, and traveling. I traveled to over 20 countries, saw the sunset in Santorini, had lunch in Petra, went caving in Vietnam, rode a gondola in Venice, and ate baklava in Istanbul. All while working from my laptop.
The more coaches and entrepreneurs I met, the more legal help I saw they needed (and were asking for). I also saw what happened when they didn't get the legal help... it wasn't pretty. I saw too many friends get burned and knew there was another way!
Whether it was needing a contract, having to deal with a refund issue, wanting to protect their new online course, or realizing they needed policies on their website - I was getting lots of questions. I was introduced to coaching and saw how many people were doing such amazing things but without the legal protection they needed (#scary).
I knew I could make an impact through helping online entrepreneurs build their businesses on a solid legal foundation...and
