151: Heather Pearce Campbell: How To Legally Protect Your Online Business

Coaches, consultants, speakers and online entrepreneurs, this episode is for you! As an attorney and legal coach, Heather Pearce Campbell is The Legal Website Warrior. She is fiercely committed to protecting world-changing entrepreneurs and small businesses. She advises her clients on a variety of issues that confront modern businesses, including cybersecurity and protecting their online content, services and intellectual property, implementing proper contracts to protect their work and relationships with clients, and asset and risk management.

Discover the real reason you want to have a proper business structure in place, why you want to avoid using sample templates for your contracts and agreements, and the importance of effective licensing language to protect yourself and your content.

Do you want to be able to work from anywhere? Heather also shares how she set up her business for freedom, so that she could, by choice, work from home once her children were born.

She is a lifelong entrepreneur, a mom to a 5-year old tornado and a newborn, and wife to a biochemist. In her words, she hoards information, paper, and books while secretly dreaming of becoming a minimalist, and relishes an occasional rare night with her hubby when the kiddos are miraculously asleep and she can soak up HGTV without guilt.
