Can you share a bit about yourself?
I am a former lawyer turned life & career coach for lawyers who want to leave the law to start their own businesses or otherwise pursue their passions. I am based in Taipei, Taiwan, where I also work as a paid travel blogger. After I committed to finding my purpose in life post-law-burnout, I realized that my calling was to teach others how they could do the same. That is how Attorney on a Journey was born.
What is Attorney on a Journey?
My coaching business focuses on helping attorneys find career clarity, pivot into alternative legal positions, or even break out on their own. My main goal is to help people from all walks of life to find their dream careers and lifestyles.
Why did you want to incorporate in the US?
Because I am based out of Taiwan (and sometimes other parts of the world as a digital nomad), it was difficult to sign contracts with US attorneys, use top-of-the-line technology for payments (such as Stripe), or take advantage of various tax benefits for US incorporations. I knew that if I wanted to reach the legal profession in the US, appear professional, and be legally protected, I needed to make a strategic change.
How did Firstbase help?
Firstbase first provided me with an expert to talk to. Although I am a U.S. citizen, I am based overseas and needed to understand the complications and benefits of incorporating into the U.S. Firstbase gave me EVERYTHING I needed and did EVERYTHING for me.
I had access to tax experts, lawyers, and best of all, a one-stop shop where I could reference all of my documents related to my LLC. I am a lawyer myself and found Firstbase to be the easiest, most painless way to start a business.
The perks just keep getting better. Firstbase continually offers me deals and promotions with their partners, as well as access to the startup scene and new ideas to grow and scale my business.
Why did you decide to use Firstbase in particular?
As a lawyer, I know the nuances and time that is required to start a business. Firstbase is an innovative solution that bypasses all the lengthy paperwork, high attorney fees, and stress normally associated with incorporating. They are leading the way for entrepreneurs and increasing access to business people all over the world.
As a lawyer, I see that tech companies like Firstbase are leading the way and giving lawyers a run for their money by adapting to the times and revolutionizing the legal industry.
What was your experience like?
After consulting with Firstbase's experts, it literally took me five minutes to set up a company.The support I received throughout the process was phenomenal. I received almost instant answers to my questions and all of the legal documents were seamlessly uploaded and made available for me.
