An interview with Patrice Perkins, Founder Lifestyle Zen
I worked full time through law school, and was already employed at my almost-dream job. I was perfectly happy at the job, but also had an entrepreneurial spirit that began to tug at me. I’ve always had an interest and passion for everything creative, so that’s who I connect with the most, and who tends to be in my network. Most of the creative entrepreneurs that I knew lacked an attorney for their business. Having an undergraduate degree in economics (and being a bit of a nerd), I fully recognized the full potential, and the significant role that “creative” play in our society. On the same token, there was still this “starving artist” mentality and very old-school perspective that artists and creative people make money by doing. I recognized that the changing digital landscape creates new opportunities for artists to earn passive income. I wanted to serve the community of creative entrepreneurs, by creating a boutique law firm just for them. I developed my business plan and launched a blog to get my brand out there while working. Once I was ready, I took the giant step into full-time self-employment, working to protect the dreams, brands and work of my clients.
