Are the Terms 'Law Firm Partner' and 'Entrepreneur' Oxymorons?
Steve Nipper, the IP lawyer behind Invent IP, directs readers to this interesting (if a bit dated) post from the Lazy Way to Succeed Blog entitled "Top Ten Signs That You're Made to Be An Entrepreneur." Though the post is humorous, it contains plenty of spot-on observations such as: You are anti-authoritarian; you have the uncanny ability to get others to do all the work; you are always seeing economic opportunity in everything; you would happily invest your home's equity and life savings in a startup; and you don't see lack of money, knowledge or experience as barriers.
With the exception of getting others to do work, I don't see much in these characteristics of an entrepreneur that resembles a traditional law firm partner. Do you?
