Summary: Lawyers are not stuck in their career and often find great success as entrepreneurs, using their skills and talents to develop their own companies.
 
Open the door to a new opportunity as an attorney and become an entrepreneur. Learn how in this article.

Training in the legal field is all that a lot of people need to gain the confidence to explore even better opportunities that arise. More and more lawyers are becoming entrepreneurs, using their legal knowledge to balance a new and competitive market where their individuality stands out. Lawyers are expected to mold into the firm and blend in with the other attorneys, but some lawyers just don’t fit in.
   
Angela Haines covers this issue in her article on Forbes, “Changing Hats: Lawyers Turn Entrepreneurs.” Quite often lawyers feel like they have to stick with their career since they went through the hard work to get there. However, there are options that arise that some lawyers are finding is a better fit.

Former securities lawyer Ali Wing started out in her transformation to a new career by criticizing a client’s revenue model. Luckily for her, she had experience in marketing before turning to the legal field and also had a strong footing in business with a combined business law degree from Northwestern. She then moved away from law after working for Gunderson Dettmer to marketing for Gazoontite. This position inspired her to explore the baby market for older parents. She launched her own company, Grantedgle, to a target audience of parents looking for customized and smarter, organic products for their babies. Her company has grown to support a 40 person corporate staff and 120 employees working in the field to support their products being sold online and from 15 retail outlets.
