Attorney Yona Gregory, owner of The Law Office of Yona Gregory, spoke to the Business Department's Entrepreneurship class about what it takes to start a business. She told the students about her career moves and how and why she decided to open her own business. Having worked in various retail businesses in the past and then starting her own restaurant at one point helped her learn about ownership and sales and helped her make her decision to go into law and to start her own legal practice. Attorney Gregory also explained the process a new business goes through when starting up and how it included figuring out finances, deciding on a billing process that led to having flat-fee offerings, finding others to join her practice, and getting the word out. She said that her goals included helping her clients through the legal process and being available when they needed her, including through online services. She also answered questions, such as the advantages and disadvantages of owning a business, what she enjoyed about her work, and what the hours were like. Students later commented that she was very informative, and they thoroughly enjoyed having her speak to them.
