The Business of Doing Business Podcast: An Online Business & Entrepreneurship Podcast

*sound of my lawyer heels hitting the pavement*

I remember running around Dallas in 2017 like it was yesterday.

From one exciting client meeting to the next, to in-person seminars and networking events (after networking event, after networking event…) that was the start of my entrepreneurial journey; the single, bold decision to strike out on my own and begin serving business owners when I started my startup & intellectual property law firm in Dallas, TX. I decided then that I would commit to developing products & services that support entrepreneurs in legally protecting their brands & businesses, so they can avoid learning lessons the hard (and expensive) way.

(I totally loved the cosmopolitan feel of the city, but, if you’re wondering, at times, I couldn’t help but feel that downtown life is a bit over-romanticized, lol.)

My POV during a quick afternoon smoothie break in the outdoor courtyard of my uptown Dallas office — Yup, I was a ‘big city’ lawyer who rocked jeans on a Tuesday. You can probably guess I’ve never been your typical attorney 😜

Throwing it back to my 2015 U.S. Patent & Trademark Office visit in D.C.! I couldn’t help but snap a pic when I came across this little café called Trademark hehe. This may or may not be a photo of the last public sighting of me in a grey suit 🌚

Working with clients globally

The best part was that the world of internet & digital marketing was in full swing, which meant I was able to connect + work with clients all over the world.

It also meant I could fully market, sell, and deliver services 100% remotely! Total game changer — especially when I became a mom in 2019.

As early as 2014 (years before launching my private practice) I remember operating in a *super* traditional legal industry, while starting to identify unique opportunities as the world of business shifted to digital and the use of social media & user-friendly online tools became accessible to virtually everyone.

What a normal, on-the-go workday looked like for me circa 2018 — iced coffee & my own secure internet connection, please & thank you. 🤓

I was witnessing (in real time) the barriers to entry coming down and more people, especially women, entering the world of entrepreneurship & brand building. It’ll always be one of the things I’m most grateful to be a part of!

And it’s been a FUN ride, to say the least.

In the time since, I’ve served more than 400 clients, hosted 50+ live trainings, sold 2000+ digital products, and I’m not slowing down any time soon. 😍

I’ve crafted my career and built my business brick by brick over the years, probably like you are right now.
