Come join entrepreneurs who eat problems for breakfast. At a Bootstrappers Breakfast® we have serious conversations about growing a business based on internal cashflow and organic profit: this is for founders who are actively bootstrapping a startup.

The other attendees will all be in startups. It will be a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with peers.

We have a featured attendee, Cheryl Lynn Nelson who will offer lessons learned from bootstrapping a legal document service for 18 year olds and their parents.

Cheryl Lynn Nelson: Bootstrapping a legal document workbook for 18 year olds

Cheryl Lynn Nelson is a certified paralegal, income tax advisor, Notary Public and a parent. She has worked in the estate planning, trust administration and probate area of law for over 11 years. Plan-18's evolution was a result of Cheryl's experiences at the law office, at the tax office, and after her son Jonathan turned 18 years of age.

As an estate planning paralegal, Cheryl knew that a parents' rights, re his or her child's medical decisions, changed once a child turned 18 years of age. She also knew that most parents of an 18 year old were completely unaware that his or her rights changed as a parent. Further, there weren't any resources available to help parents navigate these changes unless a parent perhaps had prior knowledge from his or her own estate planning attorney.

Thus, Plan-18 ( ) was born.

Cheryl will share lessons learned about bootstrapping, the evolution from idea to execution of that idea, and balancing the demands of a day job with a startup.

We meet in the back area, so space is limited — Please RSVP.
