How to run a successful side business while practicing law was one of the topics women lawyers learned about during the 2020 Florida Association for Women Lawyers Virtual Conference held on Nov. 13. The event brought together attorneys to share how to put a law degree to work in non-traditional ways to diversity income while keeping a day job. Updating law treatises, doing adjunct professor work, investing in low tax deeds, becoming a hard money lender and other non-stock market investment options were also discussed. Melanie Griffin, founder of Spread Your Sunshine and president-elect of the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers, was one of the presenters. Griffin shared “Effective Strategies to Begin Your Passion Project, Side Hustle or New Small Business.” Check out:
