Taking a few simple steps upfront to protect your business or project can save time and money down the road.

FINALLY, CLEAR ANSWERS FOR LEGAL AND BUSINESS QUESTIONS WRITTEN BY LAWYERS AND DESIGNED FOR CREATIVES
After 10 years of advising creators and entrepreneurs, we’ve kept hearing about the same unsolved issue from our clients...
Creatives want to learn the legal and business rules they need to grow and protect their businesses. BUT they don’t have the resources to purchase 10 different books, read 100 different conflicting blog posts written by non-lawyers, and then spend $1,000 hiring an expensive lawyer to summarize them all before they’re understandable and usable.
That’s why we‘ve created our Resource Library. These checklists, best practice guides, and videos are made specifically for creative entrepreneurs who want the right strategies -- laid out in the right order -- to legally protect and thoughtfully grow their businesses.
We realized there needs to be an affordable and accurate place to find best practice guides written by lawyers but designed to be implemented by creators.
We are supporting the Library with ongoing updates -- which means you get new, actionable content for as long as you remain a member.
You can directly suggest new additions for the topics we’ll add. YOU as members, dictate what is added to the library based on what YOU need the most.
