Last week, I finally pulled the trigger; I put in my notice with the law firm that I’ve been working for over the past four years.
Starting October 1st, I am going all-in, full-time, on my startup: a legal software company.
Although I’ve been part time at the firm since 2011, I’ve still put a lot of my heart into that company. I’ve been everything from the Salesforce girl, criminal paralegal, courthouse runner, bankruptcy legal assistant, salesperson, blogger and happy hour planner. I’ve spent my early adult years with those guys, learning and growing each day, so it’s hard to believe that in just two weeks, I’ll be completely on my own. But wow, what an awesome feeling to know that I will be working 120% on my own startup.
I know that it’s going to be a complete roller-coaster: climbing slowly to the top, fearful of the drop, but knowing that as I’m falling to the ground, momentum will shoot me back up again. Extreme highs and lows… but I’m ready to pour myself into it.
