Michael Hagele began his legal practice because through his experience he found that a smaller or a sole proprietary practice gave way to providing quality and cost-effective legal services. He finds that tenacity is vital to success. Hagele enjoys the challenge of working through the problem, assessing any new information coming in that will lead to success down the road. Hagele has pushed himself to succeed since his days working at a car wash in Chicago during the winter months. The experience pushed him to take charge of his own future, as well as find purpose in his life.
For Hagele, clients come first as their life or business can easily depend on him being able to do his job successfully. As such, his day starts with what matters most to his clients, which means giving counsel on general or intellectual property issues.
Hagele’s day spans from taking care of his clients to speaking with his overseas investment partners as they strategize and assess the project’s progress. He uses everything at his disposal to achieve his goals even as he takes a break from his day to enjoy the views that nature offers or taking a bike ride. This enables Hagele to reach his creative peak, as he states that it’s not unusual for him to find solutions to his clients’ issues while he is outside and enjoying nature.
As an entrepreneur, Hagele uses social media tools because it’s an important factor towards growing a business in today’s age. Being an entrepreneur doesn’t come without its challenges as he has come to the conclusion that it’s important to find people that are just as invested as you in the success of the company.
At the end of the day, once it’s all said and done, Hagele highly recommends reading a book by Ron Chernow: “Alexander Hamilton,” which covers the birth of the U.S. and at the same time, the book is highly entertaining.
