Questions: What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Answer: What propelled me to venture out on my own was the pandemic. The whole world was affected by the changes and we definitely had to get used to the changes. I had recently started working for a boutique tax firm in November 2019. When the layoffs started, since I was the last one in, I was one of the first ones out just 4 months later (March 2020). I opened the doors of Fleurinord Law PLLC in October 2020. I had seen what some people go through when a loved one passes away and how the probate process can be painstaking and laborious in the midst of grief. I do not want my clients to have to experience that. I want to be able to help them put things in place to protect their family so that they can grieve without the added stress of having to go through the probate process.
Questions: What three pieces of advice would you give to budding entrepreneurs?
Answer: The first piece of advice I would give is that everyone is not your target market. It may take some time to figure out exactly who you want to work with. Being your own boss gives you the chance to maintain your peace. The second piece of advice I would give is to be willing to pay people to do the things that you don’t want to do, or don’t have the time to do. This will free you up to bring in new business and do the actual work. The last piece of advice I would give is to be open-minded about new opportunities & don’t let fear block you from exploring different business ventures.
