Growing up, when I heard the phrase: “Life isn’t fair”, my twelve-year-old self would become rather perplexed, and I would ask myself, “Why?”
“Why can’t life be fair?” “Why can’t we make life what we want it to be?”
I understand that life isn’t always easy or fair, but I could never just accept that phrase in a way to be resigned to it; like it was an answer to the way everything is turning out. As if to say, when facing our circumstances and the things we wish were different…. “Well, there is nothing I can do, life isn’t fair.”
Without knowing it, this belief about "fairness" would lead me to the career I love in law and business.
My very first entrepreneurial venture was when I was just sixteen years old, and I had decided to learn how to do magic tricks just for fun. Well, after practicing, I became rather good at it. My mother was my practice audience. After a while, she suggested I perform magic shows at children’s birthday parties. At first I thought it was a crazy idea, but in time it started to grow on me. So, in shop class, I printed my very first set of business cards and began doing magic shows at children’s parties. It was fun and rather lucrative especially at sixteen. Without knowing it, this first venture, was a blueprint of how I would successfully re-invent my professional life many a times.
Now, I want to share that blueprint and knowledge with you.
There is something we can usually do to change our circumstances.
My journey has taken me through classrooms as a high school English teacher, on the border of Mexico in Texas, in the biggest drug corridor of the US, to pursuing a career as a practicing lawyer in the areas of business law, bankruptcy law, and personal injury law for over twenty years. To now, a business coach and attorney, motivational speaker, legal and business content speaker, and podcaster.
Through merging my experience as a teacher with working what I like to call “people” law, I’ve learned how to meet people as they are, where they are….face to face with the challenges and struggles they are experiencing.
Whether it was helping people form their business dreams, providing hope for those facing bankruptcy, or fighting for the frustrated who were not being heard by an opposing party, I have the honorable role of helping my clients through their difficult times.
I take those “unfair moments”, and turn them into times of triumph and change and strive for personal peace along the way.
I work with bright and passionate entrepreneurs with the burning desire to create something big. I have the opportunity to assist and guide them on their journeys through creating their vision, putting it into practice, and protecting their work.
I guide and coach entrepreneurs to jump over the mental or physical hurdles in their way, and I teach and educate on how to draft the legal documents they need to avoid them.
For the last 20 years, I have helped people achieve what they want - regardless of their circumstances.
I have built a network around me that supports this vision and the vision of my clients. As a lawyer and legal guide for entrepreneurs I am able to truly help people.
Through the law, I have the power and share it with you to protect yourself from those that would steal your hard work, try to gum you up with red-tape, or penalize you for the unknowns.
I help people all over the country, from Texas, Illinois, Tennessee, Ohio, and of course New England.
I do this work because I have a crazy passion to have you be in the work you want to be in, doing what you want to be doing. I do this work so you can sleep at night, knowing your hard work is seen, heard, and safe.
I DO THIS WORK SO YOU CAN GO BIGGER IN YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS.
I would love to support you on your journey to greatness.
