    Greetings everyone!

    I am submitting this post to introduce myself to the rest of the Flying Solo community at the suggestion of our gracious FS Concierge (thanks Jayne!).

    I have recently set up my own law firm, Winthrop Mason | Business Lawyers & Migration Agents, which specialises in helping people with business, finance and investment related matters.

    My law firm’s website is still work-in-progress but I would appreciate some feedback on it from the FS community (http://www.winthropmason.com.au).

    During the past 14 years, I had been working initially as a Solicitor in national law firms and then subsequently as a Corporate Lawyer for a number of large financial institutions in Brisbane and Sydney. More recently, however, I felt that the time has finally come for me to strike out on my own.

    I always knew that it was going to be a huge challenge transitioning from having a safe, high-salaried job to running my own boutique legal practice, but having started this journey, I really can’t imagine why I did not do this sooner.

    I love the feeling of being 100% in control of my financial destiny, and of being solely accountable for both my successes and my failures. Sure the working hours are longer – much, much longer – but, you know what, I wouldn’t have things any other way!

    Kind Regards,

    Carl Desacola, Lawyer & Registered Migration Agent (MARN 1461661)

    Welcome to Flying Solo, Carl!

    This quote of yours really resonated with me:

    It’s a great attitude and one that will see you go far as a soloist!

    I look forward to seeing more of your contributions about the place.

    Love your work,

    Sam
