Guest post:: Jessica T. Olmon formed Vero Law after seeing an opportunity to create a new kind of law firm: one where business attorneys make major contributions to their clients’ growth and where clients rely on their attorneys as trusted advisors. Jessica is passionate about spending time with her daughter, international travel to exotic locations, golf, and yoga.
Here, she talks about the impetus for starting Course Corrected, a 10-week course which is dedicated to teaching how to get the lifestyle and profit you want, which she is so excited to bring to The Founding Moms!
Do you ever feel like you know you can achieve so much more?
I was overworked at a big law firm and honestly completely miserable. For 4 years.
I just couldn’t bring myself to leave, even though I always thought there was something more for me in life. When I had my daughter, I took a good look at my life and my career, and I thought to myself, “Is this what I’m going to teach my baby? That you have to grind it out just to make a living in life?” And the answer was NO.
I quit my job when my daughter was 6 months old. It was the absolute scariest thing I had ever done up to that point. Everyone thought I had lost my mind. Although I knew I was a great lawyer, I had no idea how to get business or how to run a law firm.
So I did what we all do, and I just began.
I started Vero Law Group in the basement of my house and focused the firm on helping entrepreneurs build successful businesses. In the first six months of work, I made $12,000. I was distraught and so stressed about money. And it wasn’t like I was sitting around: I was hustling to get clients, taking care of my daughter part-time and working most nights on the business.
That reality – only $12,000 in six months – led me to search for an answer. I knew there must be a way for me to build a successful business, I just needed to find out how.
Five years later, we’ve had over 400 clients and are one of the top business law firms in Los Angeles. In the process, I have truly become a different person in business and in life.
How to get the lifestyle and profit YOU want.
By creating a successful business and also by working with hundreds of entrepreneurs, I was inspired to create a course for professional service providers. I truly believe that each and every one of us has a gift to express while we’re here.
Somehow, some way, this gift is part of our purpose in life. For entrepreneurs, our gift is usually related to the work we’re doing, but I came to see that we can only truly help others when we ourselves have success.
So I created Course Corrected, which is a 10-week course to help a service provider take their business from a “job” to an actual functioning company. What does that mean? It means creating a company that serves you with the lifestyle you want and the profit to support it. It’s the answer I needed when I started my company – it’s the answer to how.
In the course, we focus on three areas: mindset (how you have to change your thinking to reach a new level of success), business strategy (becoming a businessperson) and legal (understanding how the law affects your business).
We also have a guarantee that we offer all clients:
We add more value to your business than you pay us. If you fully participate in the course, and you don’t think that’s true for any reason, we will refund the cost of your investment.
