LegalZoom Founder Brian Liu never expected to start his own business. Even when a fortune-teller told him he was destined to be an entrepreneur, Liu laughed the idea away. He expected to be a doctor at the time, though he eventually went to law school instead. Either way, he expected to work a traditional job.
