HEIDI A. BOEHLEFELD

Managing Partner, Renner Otto

HEIDI'S STORY

Heidi Boehlefeld is a managing partner at Renner Otto, an intellectual property law firm in Cleveland, Ohio. She left a successful role at a corporation and joined the firm to enjoy more flexibility with her young children.

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR:

“Learning to think like an owner… rather than an employee.” This gave Heidi the chance to exercise big picture thinking and strategic planning.

THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE SHE EVER RECEIVED

Maya Angelou once said “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

AND THE WORST...

She received this gem when she was six months pregnant and striving to succeed in a predominantly male environment, “try to blend in and don’t call attention to yourself.”

AND WHAT SHE LEARNED ALONG THE PATH TO SUCCESS

Don’t try to re-invent the wheel. Take advantage of the expertise and experience of others to the extent they are willing to share and/or that you can afford. It will most likely save you time and money and help you avoid missteps and setbacks.
