Thank you to the wonderful students and professors at Southwestern Law School for inviting me to speak on Technology, #Law and #Entrepreneurship.


Speaking to students is one of the most gratifying and also stimulating activities that I have the pleasure of participating in.  There is not a single time where I have left a speaking engagement without learning an invaluable lesson myself!


This talk I tried to loosely structure around what I consider the four pillars of #entrepreneurship:


1) Build your story build your brand; you are your own best advertising, no one is going to do a better job marketing you than you will.

2) Try to look 5-10 years in the future, don't chase current trends by the time you catch them they will not be trending anymore.

3) Give back, be the #Eleemosynary Entrepreneur.  No business success will bring you as much joy as helping others;

4) Never Give up, in the immortal words of Rocky Balboa "it's not how hard you hit, its how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward!"


Thanks again #SouthWestern #Lawschool
