Highlights from the Episode
The story of how Lin & Jennifer connected, plus the origin of the name “RoamHowl”
Lin's first career was broadcasting -- she even wrote a letter to a local television station at age 11 saying she could "help them out" and asking for a job.
Lin's motto - “no excuses, no regrets!”
"Years from now, when I look back at my life. If I have a regret or I’m making excuses, then I will have disappointed myself." ~Lin Eleoff
How Lin had no desire to work for a big law firm with small kids at home -- she wanted to start own practice but saw what her colleagues in private practice were going through and realized she didn’t want to run the office — she just wanted to practice law.
The "gaping hole" she saw in the market where online entrepreneurs didn’t really know how to protect themselves in terms of "internet law," intellectual property, contracts, privacy, etc.
Lin's DIY Legal Toolkit as an answer to the following observations:
"People are 1) afraid to hire a lawyer, and 2) think they don’t need to." ~Lin Eleoff
Lin's passion for supporting women in building their online businesses from scratch and answering their inner 6-year-old who has big dreams of changing the world.
Deep insight into Lin's coaching process - take away everything except the facts — separate from the drama and emotion - and then from there you can decide what to do.
How challenges in life and work can be looked at as “AFGOs” - another freaking growth opportunity.
The power of groups and masterminds.
How Lin uses online marketing to find her dream clients clients.
"I get up in the morning and literally I skip to work — which is just a few feet down the hall on the right. It’s great!” ~Lin Eleoff
Lin's coach training with Martha Beck and how that led her to "...figure out a new way to be a lawyer.”
Chris Ducker's advice to embrace everything you've done up to this point of becoming an entrepreneur and the repercussions of hiding those parts of ourselves, and not living our authentic truth.
Lin's Gutsy Rule Book for how she rewrote the rules we THINK are our rules, but are not — audit, rewrite and live by them.
Learning more from failures than successes.
The biggest piece of advice she wishes she'd had earlier in her entrepreneurial journey and Lin’s definition of success — hint — it’s not about money or possessions
"I could never have charted this path. I could never have predicted it, but here I am and I just love what I’m doing." ~Lin Eleoff
