A few life updates before we get to the show!

 

We’ve closed on the house in Costa Rica! This is our first investment overseas and I know some of you have an interest in doing the same. In the next few weeks’ I’ll do a Q&A episode so feel free to send in your housing questions over instagram or to okeoma@thehappylawyerproject.com!

 

Additionally, I want to say a big thank you to all of you that have supported the book! They are currently at the printer and in the process of being produced. Self-publishing a book takes A LOT more work than it seems and I’m happy and excited to share more of that information with you. If you have any questions on self-publishing send those over instagram or to okeoma@thehappylawyerproject.com

 

Now onto the episode. There are so many of us who have passions and dreams that are going unfulfilled because we are stuck in dream mode due to our limiting beliefs. Stuck with a wishbone that we need to turn into a backbone. I’m not someone that believes everyone needs to leave their day job to follow their passion or find themselves nor am I someone that believes that every passion needs to be monetized. I am someone who believes that everyone should have the courage to take action on their passions.

 

Today I chat with Alex Davis, who is the founder of Davis Legal Media. We dive into how the small decisions that she made along her path to trust her curiosity, double down on her strengths, and take uncomfortable action led her to where she is today. You’ll discover the difference between when to plan and when to take a leap of faith. Hope you enjoy!

 

What you’ll learn:

 

  • Alex’s career in law
  • What spurred on Alex’s transition into entrepreneurship
  • 3 steps to developing a business plan based off of your passion
  • Tips to building a business with confidence
  • Exercises to discovering your passion
  • High level tips for lawyers marketing online
  • Reasons to start blogging

Best Advice for Finding Happiness

 

“Sometimes we forget that we have choices.”

“When we finally let go of control and just accept, no it’s okay to experiment, it’s okay to try something different, it’s okay to take a different path, that can really increase our happiness.”

“We are the authors of the life that we are living.”
