EPISODE 53 | The Must Dos To Legally Protect Your Business
Do you have a little voice nagging at you, wondering if you’re doing the right thing? Wondering if you’re covered should something legal come up? You probably know how to legally cover yourself for your in person clients and working in clinic, but what about online? What about working with clients from other countries?
One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your business, is to make sure you’re covered legally. You need to have the proper legalities in place to not only protect yourself, but to protect your business, content, and clients too. This is CEO stuff (and you ARE a CEO by the way!) So grab a piece of paper and take notes, because you’re going to want to come back to this episode a few times as your business grows and evolves.
I invited Sam Vander Wielen, LLC to have this conversation because it is her mission in life to help empower female entrepreneurs to grow and protect their businesses. She dives into the nitty gritty of what it means to be legally legit and what steps you need to take to get your business on that same level.
Sam walks us through the important legal items you should set up immediately upon beginning a business. We talk about why certain legal items are so important, how they can help your business, when you should look at getting a copyright, and what to do if someone is stealing your content. Here is what Sam covers in this episode.
