Today’s interview features someone who has managed to break the glass celling both in her 25-year career as a Deputy Public Defender and her stint as an Amazon seller and Shopify store owner.
Elena Saris’ loaded resume lists her impressive career trajectory as a Criminal Defense Attorney, former Stand-Up Comic, and 7-figure e-commerce seller. It’s surprising to know that this regular speaker and guest at conferences and TV shows still has much time for hobbies outside her decorated career as a lawyer and online entrepreneur. She reads a lot, enjoys traveling, and even has a geriatric movie club where she just taught two 98-year olds how to use Zoom!

-how for her, online entrepreneurship was a side-hustle at first because she still had her law practice
-what she thinks is the hardest part about transitioning to making money online from a secure 9-5
-the mindset shift you’re required to have to really succeed as an online entrepreneur
-her new online e-commerce course launching in October 2020
