I’m getting back into the swing of things over here after being in Spain the last few weeks.
I love traveling SO much….AND I love being home. Anyone else feel that way?!
I’m going to be honest with you – as always. Normally I share a reader submitted question here on Sam’s Sidebar, my weekly legal Q&A.
But this week I created my own question out of many, many questions I get in my inbox and DMs daily — can legally protecting your business actually do anything to help you grow it?!
It’s a legitimate and good question. And in just a few short days from now, I’m about to open the doors to a brand-new live legal training you can attend for FREE… followed by a truly insane sale on the Ultimate Bundle™️.
So I thought this was worth a chat 🙂 Let’s dive in!👇
The Question // We get asked all the time,
Can legally protecting my business actually grow it? 🌱
The Answer //
Over the past 6 years, I’ve heard from thousands of customers who share how once they got legal protection in place — whether it was an LLC, a legit contract, or knowing what they were legally allowed to talk about — they felt so confident and free to start talking about their business more.
You can put 2 & 2 together to guess what happens when you talk about your business more on social media 😜
Here’s what I see happen most often when you don’t have legal protection:
You’re thinking about putting out a new offer.
You don’t have legal protection yet — but you don’t know if you should spend money on legal until your business is a little more….established.
So you “launch” your program, but you do so quietly because you know it’s a little risky legally.
Since you launch it so quietly and are afraid to truly invite people in — not that many people join and you end up where you started.
^ This is the cycle I help coaches and service-providers get out of.
2| TRUST + PROFESSIONALISM
Once you legally protect your business, it’s incredible how you show up differently. Even if your business isn’t the big-success it’s going to be in the future (!!), it’s important to start acting like you’re heading in that direction.
Once I stopped acting like the business (& CEO) I was today and started acting like the one I was headed towards, my business skyrocketed within months.
You’ve got to legally protect the business you’re building — not necessarily exactly what you have today.
I think it’s sort of like dressing for the job you want, not the one you have. It’s like you start acting like a big, professional business – and then that’s how the world will see you.
I also know that having legit contracts and looking like you have your ish together is more attractive and safe for future-clients of yours. They’ll be more willing to work with someone who looks legit.
3| RECOUP 💰
Ultimate Bundle™️ member, Mya, shared on my Ultimate Bundle member roundtable podcast episode (that comes out 1/23!!) that she was able to recoup tens of thousands of dollars in 2022 alone, just because of having her legal ducks in a row thanks to the Ultimate Bundle™️.
If a client doesn’t pay your invoice or issues a chargeback threat to their bank/credit card (what happened to Mya and is 100% normal and to be expected in online business), you have to have already had your legal stuff in order when the client/customer purchased. Otherwise, the complaining customer will always win.
