If you’re in the Success Phase of business – your business is stable, you’re making consistent revenue you and others depend on (from $50,000 to low six-figures) and you’ve built a team – this episode is for you.
Learn some expensive mistakes you could be making in your business, whether you’re a done-for-you service provider, a coach, or a course creator.
And even if you’re still in the earlier Launch Phase or Solopreneur Phase, or in a later phase of building your business, you’ll want to tune in to make sure you’ve taken care of your legal basics, or get an idea of potential problems that lie ahead.
In this episode, we’ll cover:
- Why it’s important to distinguish between independent contractors doing ongoing work for your business and those who just handle a one-time project
- How misclassifying a worker can be one of the most expensive mistakes you make
- Why it’s absolutely essential to use a written agreement when you’re collaborating with another business or individual
- The one trademark you need to register once you reach the Success Phase
