Season 2, Episode 16
Let’s Talk About Legal (& Other) Stuff!
It’s time for another controversial topic: legal, accounting, and insurance realities of running a business. Most entrepreneurs are afraid to share their experiences because they are not experts—and may have made some embarrassing mistakes. However, our businesses cannot grow and prosper without each of these pieces in place.
DISCLAIMER: I am by no means an expert on any of these topics. I only share from my own experiences. Any recommendations I make in this episode should NOT be taken as legal, accounting, or insurance advice. The content of this episode is intended to make listeners think about these topics and do more research on their own to figure out what’s right for their businesses.
