“What do you want to be or do when you grow up?” This is a common question that people ask the youth. Most kids answer specific careers such as doctors, entrepreneurs, chefs, etc., but some look at the bigger picture and want to create a bigger impact on the world.
From an early age, Rex Afrasiabi already knew his purpose in life which is to help people while continuously learning and growing from everything around him.
As the principal and the founder of M A Legal, which helps its clients in their business and personal lives through their various legal services as well as consultations, Rex is more than able to fulfill his purpose in life.
Before Rex started his firm, he had another job as a general manager for an international fashion company. He found the role to be challenging, rewarding, and enjoyable. Yet it wasn’t what he was looking for.
According to Rex, the position didn’t complement his purpose, cause, and beliefs which are what drives him to get up and work each day.
“Pursuing my ‘why’ led me to start my law firm over a decade ago. The practice of law for me is perfect to satisfy my ‘why.’ I am entrusted by my clients each day and I help them in business and life,” he shared.
Rex opted to start M A Legal, his own brand because, in modern-day social media, he knows that personal branding is more important than ever.
“Not only does it help differentiate me from my competition but it also helps highlight myself to the world and highlights my unique skills, life, and experiences, and above all it provides social proof,” he said.
Inspired By Life Experiences
“I believe there is no greater inspiration than our life journey and what we have been through, and learnt along the way, and often the difficult times are when we learn the most” Rex said.
Rex grew up in a war-torn country with regular bombings occurred at night. He later migrated to Australia even though he didn’t know how to speak English.
Yet despite all these challenges, Rex knew he had a purpose in life and he wasn’t going to let anything stop him from doing what he’s meant to do.
“Focus on your passion, learn and become the best at what you are. Do the right thing and never compromise your morals or reputation. By being one of the best and credible in your chosen field, profits will follow,” he said.
