Important Lessons as a Business Owner

Text: Want to know one of the most important lessons I've learned as a business owner?

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned as a business owner (lawyer, coach, and educator) is this:

In order to truly empower others, you must first empower yourself.

Sometimes that means taking a stand.

Or saying things others are afraid to say.

Or saying NO to that which does not serve you.

And it always means saying YES to what is truly meant to be in your life – people, opportunities, events, and more.

And, because it always bear repeating: I am proud to partner with BIPOC and LGBTQI+ owned & allied entrepreneurs to help them create, run, protect, and scale their businesses with confidence and grace. As a coach and as an attorney!

Too many business owners (and employees) try to serve everyone.

Here’s the truth: you can’t be everything to everyone. Once you understand this, you can truly show up as you’re meant to be, and help those you want to help.

As an attorney and empowerment coach, I have the unique opportunity to help individuals build the lives they really want. I do this in lots of ways:

  • As a business coach, helping you figure out what kind of business you want and help you build it and create it from the legal side
  • As a career coach, helping you find that job you truly love and don’t have to settle for (yuck).
  • Helping you transition your business or firm to a new system or structure, or a niche that you’ve been wanting to focus on but never seem to find the time to work through.

Whatever it is, I show up as you need me to show up, but the focus of everything I do is you empowering you – and asking the hard questions, giving you the grace and permission and support you need to listen to your intuition about what’s right for you.

If you need help with your business, your job, your contracts, your people – I’m your girl. Let’s chat!


P.S. Today, I met my new business BFF! She’s everything I hoped she’d be. Thank you, Caitlyn MacMaster for showing up today, and for giving our time the love and laughs it deserved. I can’t wait to collaborate with you!

About Sheila: An attorney, a social worker and an educator, she’s unlike any other person you’ve ever met. She thrives on a challenge, loves to solve puzzles and fix things and definitely loves helping make other people’s lives better – stronger – more efficient – happier. She tells terribly corny jokes, but maybe, just maybe, if you’re nice to her, and even laugh at her jokes, you’ll get something specially baked, just for you. Yep. For real.
* I have two goals each day: (1) to make a stranger laugh and (2) to be a better person each day than I was the day before. I meet these goals. Every. Single. Day.
