The article actually comes from Particletree. Interestingly, it advocates jumping in, gritting your teeth, and being ready to flop on your face. Kind-of a wake up call for some aspiring entrepreneurs out there.
How might this concept apply to lawyers, especially young ones, who want to start their own law firm? What kind of lessons might you learn by jumping in now?
In my opinion, many of the things that Particletree discusses about startup ventures apply to firms as well, especially when you’re thinking of striking out alone. You will learn that a lot of work is involved. You will learn that you didn’t have enough money saved up. You might not be able to make ends meet.
However, in the end, you will learn. Isn’t that what life is all about? Aren’t we supposed to grow, learn, and become better people? Maybe you can do this by starting your own firm. You might not get rich, but can you put a price on life experiences?
