Five years ago I took a huge risk–I left a comfortable job at a mid-size law firm in Kansas City. Since then, I started and sold a law firm marketing company, grown Venture Legal into a sustainable law firm, and started Contract Canvas (a digital contract platform for freelancers). My wife and I also welcomed two daughters into the world.
It’s been a rollercoaster. The highs are very high. The lows are very low.
But there’s one constant: more often than not, I wake up excited for what I’m about to do that day.
I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I’ve certainly learned a lot about entrepreneurship (and life in general) in these five years. So without further ado, here are 37 things I’ve learned since becoming my own boss.
It’s impossible to capture everything I learned in the last five years into just one blog post. But this is a good start.
