I was going over my various blogs and I thought I would visit my first one – this one. It has been a couple years since I started this blog to serve as my outlet while I moved from a law firm job, to taking the bar exam in another state, and, essentially starting my legal career over again.
I haven’t posted on here in months. I may not post here again in months. I may post next week. I may never post again. Who knows.

The first few months are probably going to be tough. The middle months can be amazing. When you really start cooking it is a great feeling. Then you realize you got to keep feeding the beast.
I’ve made more money than I ever did at a law firm. I have freedom. I save what I want for retirement. I call all of the shots. I am a Minnesota estate planning and probate attorney. Nobody tells me what to do. I pick my clients. I work my ass off if I want to and take vacation if I want to. I love it. I am happy.
Getting new clients is always tough, but they are there. Be bold. Take a chance. If you can stomach the risk, do it. Do it right and don’t look back.
I will leave you with this:
