Hi. I’m Mike. I recently quit the practice of law to live an unscripted life. I actually read Unscripted after I quit law, nodding my head in agreement to every passage. Nothing says living a scripted life than practicing law. It’s the epitome of scripted. Law school is where dreams go to die. I have money saved up, but I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do yet. I have ideas of possibly using my legal background to create a business that utilizes my experience. In the old days of affiliate marketing, early 2000s, while practicing, I played around (didn’t take it seriously) and made around $600/mo for about 3 years. It opened my eyes to possibilities to online businesses, yet it was more event than process oriented (I think I just got lucky). For now, I’m going to lurk a bit to learn as much as I can, and take things a step at a time.

Welcome Mike, glad to have you! Question... did you escape law AND the student loans associated with the degree?

Actually, no, I’m still paying off the student loan. The propaganda from law schools (and family) was that a legal career was a sure bet towards prosperity and security. All BS. This was before it could have been easily researched on the internet. It hasn’t stopped the avalanche of people enrolled today. It makes no sense that people would still go.
