We had the good fortune of connecting with Rayman Khan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rayman, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
I look at it this way: Withholding the value that only you can provide is a selfish act. And simply showing up is a generous one. What you do in your business or practice is rooted in generosity. You have a key that can unlock something for someone, somewhere. Without you, that door will remain closed to them. When you give up, you’re not just giving up on yourself, you’re giving up on those who need the value only you can provide. That’s why its a selfish act… and if you’re anything like myself, you too probably rather be generous and find it within yourself to keep going. Mindset is so powerful.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
in|flow law group is a virtual law firm for creative entrepreneurs. We “clear the fog” as they sail towards their goals, and we do so in an approachable and accessible manner. We are innovative and focused on disrupting the traditional practice of law. Hourly billing? No way. Boxy suits? Nah, not us. Fancy boardrooms or offices? Nah, we spend our money more consciously. We’re probably the only law firm you may know that has a core value such as “trust our dopeness” (or any core values at all!). Let’s face it – the traditional practice of law is intimidating and, well, unaffordable for a majority of clients. This is why there is an unfortunate 70% of people who need but lack access to an attorney. So we set out to change that. My favorite part of what we do? We started an innovative and unprecedented legal subscription program called the “Creators’ Legal Tribe.” Unlimited scheduled calls and document reviews, exclusive benefits and access to our member network. All for $79 a month. It’s a gamechanger for our clients, and it brings us the most joy to implement! We also have a fun and engaging instagram community… give us a follow if you’re into business/legal education and tips!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
This is my favorite thing to do. Here’s a full day’s itinerary: Morning- Little Italy. Start with Sandpiper lattes (amazing hazelnut lattes) from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and then walk down the street to Devil’s Dozen for the BEST glazed donuts ever. We walk around India Street before heading to Ocean Beach. We grab Acai Bowls from Tiki Port on cable street, and then bring them to eat at the dog beach and watch dogs run around and enjoy themselves. For the afternoon, we head to Point Loma for the Cabrillo Monument, but really we just head down to the tide pools and interact with the local marine life. To quench our inevitable thirst, we’ll head into Liberty Station and grab a beer from either Stone Brewing, Moniker General, or the Liberty Public Market (or all 3). For dinner we’ll head into South Park to grab a drink from the infamous Kindred bar, and then eat a rich meal from Curryosity on Juniper (I mean, what’s better than waffle fries covered in masala sauce?). Dessert? Say no more fam, we’ll head up to North Park for a scoop or a mini cone flight from Hammonds Homemade Ice Cream. Who’s down?
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
When I was traveling on Semester at Sea, an undergraduate study abroad program where you sail around the world on a ship, I met an attorney. His name was Rehan Hasan, and he was advising the international entrepreneurs who were participating in the “Unreasonable At Sea” program on the same ship. Rehan was more than just an attorney with a charming demeanor… he looked like me. He was a brown south asian dude who was disrupting the legal field his own way. That struck a chord in me… an older brown dude who was a cool attorney?! I didn’t have many role models growing up, but when I got to know Rehan on that ship, I finally had one. When I got off that ship, I immediately started studying for the LSAT and then applied for law school. The funny thing? I knew Rehan for like 2 weeks… I doubt he knows the impact he had on my life, but I will be sure to share this with him on LinkedIn when it’s published haha.
