In 2010, the United States was three years into one of the worst recessions in history. Rachel Schaffer Lawson was among thousands of students who graduated at that time, wondering what awaited them - if anything at all - in the workforce.
The results were dismal: Very few places were hiring and those that were happened to not be in the field of law. After sending countless resumes and attending numerous informational meetings, Rachel was at her wits end.
There was a saying that had always stuck with Rachel throughout difficult times: "If the fear of doing something is why you are not doing it, that is not a good enough reason." With that in mind, she leapt into the unknown realm of entrepreneurship and launched Schaffer Law Firm PLLC March 1, 2011.
Rachel remembers that first year as a business owner as the scariest, while at the same time, the most exciting year of her life. Within the first six months, the business was profitable, virtually unheard of, then and now. Five years in, business has grown 25 percent each year and has expanded to serve clients in the hospitality and nonprofit industries. And of course we would never forget about our fellow entrepreneurs.
