Hey! I’m Michelle. I’m a millennial mom, wife, entrepreneur, second-year law student, and the voice behind By Legal Design.
When I became a mom, I had just got married and completed my first year of law school. I was actually studying for finals and planning the wedding at the same time (talk about stressed).
A few months after my daughter was born, I dealt with a ton of internal struggles about whether to continue to pursue my dreams or put them on hold and solely focus on motherhood.
So after a failed attempt at returning to law school, I told myself that it wasn’t the right time to be in school and instead did the stay-at-home-mom thing for about a year and a half.
As much as I loved being able to spend so much time with my daughter, I hated feeling like being a mom had become my only identity.
But then I had to ask myself: Why has society made women feel like we have to choose between having a career and having a family? What if I want to have both?
So that’s what I decided to do.
Fast-forward to today: I’m a second-year law student, blogger, and mompreneur. I’m spending half of my days at home chasing a toddler around while building a money-making blog and helping other moms do the same. As for the other half, I’m in class working towards my dream of becoming a lawyer with my own practice.
We spend so much time away from our families building other peoples’ dreams. What would it look like if you could take that time and invest it back into your own business and your own dreams?
I fully intend to design my own life on my own terms and I want you to believe that you can, too.
I created By Legal Design for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to make money blogging, build a business from home, and design a life they love.
