286: Work That’s Not Work

Listen to the interview here:


Scott Aaronson started a free sample website business while in college. Soon it became profitable enough to allow him to travel the world and pursue his passion for law. He became a lawyer and started yet another business that helps people remove legal matters from public records. Scott tells his story and shares the lessons he learned along the way on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show.

About Scott:

I am now 30 years old, a graduate from the University of Toledo College of Law and undergraduate of Western Michigan University.  I grew up in a Northern Detroit Suburb.
In law school a buddy and I started a series of websites that promote free samples on the internet (SampleADay.com is the US version of the site).  The idea for starting the website was to make a bit of extra money to finance traveling around the world.  By the time I graduated from law school, our websites made both of us enough money to be a full time job. At this time I decided to pursue my passion of law on my own.  Eventually we hired people to handle most of the daily tasks of running a website.
My law practice focused on criminal defense related matters.  Specifically, I focused on helping people clear their records.  I found that helping people get a court order was really only the first step in making sure the convictions went away.  Often times their convictions still lingered around on public records websites.  To prevent this, I created http://backgroundcheckremoval.com .  A website designed specifically to assist people in making sure once their convictions were expunged, it would come off their public records as well.
Since opening my firm I have been named by The National Trial Lawyers as Top 40 under 40 and Top 100 overall in the state of Michigan.  I have been profiled by Cranes Business Magazine and ranked “Superb” by AVVO, the highest designation possible.  I have also been consistently named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers, a designation given only to the top 2.5% of practicing attorneys.
