It started with a dream. One day you were fantasizing about a business, a service or a website you wish existed, and the next you found herself in a dizzying sea of color palettes and typography. Perhaps Googling “SEO” and trying to wiggle into the minds of your target audience. Before long, the site launched, your brand was born, it was beautiful and you were in business. Except that was only the beginning of the delicious excitement and hair-yanking overwhelm that your new brain-child was to bring to your life.
It’s all a bit maddening, right?
If you can relate–if ever your online business has you tossing and turning into the witching hours, staring at the ceiling fan, layering a series of mental sticky notes about yet another ten things you’ve got to do the next day, read on. I can’t make all of your entrepreneurial dreams come true, but I’m about to help you get the legal part covered.
Because, while being your own boss is fabulous, life’s too short to not have peace of mind.
For one, a lack of legal protection is never a good look…
Whether you’ve got a side-hustle fashion blog, a mom-centric podcast or a soap and candle shop, you need to protect yourself. There are laws in place that you might be violating without ever having known it. And, after the whiplash-inducing year we’ve all had, who needs that kind of unnecessary nightmare? Not me, not you, not anyone.
OK, so I admit that I didn’t grasp the seriousness of this until recently. Which means that, if you haven’t either, you’re about to feel better about yourself.
I’m the daughter of an attorney. I worked in my dad’s law office during my high school and early college days–answering phones, eavesdropping on depositions, filing motions at the courthouse, being witness to last wills and testaments. In other words, I knew better than to not ensure proper legal protection over my website. I’ve witnessed the most competent, law-abiding, well-meaning people stumble into the office lobby as though their nightmares had become them–stricken with panic over having been sued. It was not exactly a desirable look.
But, in my defense, I’m also the quintessential creative type. Give me 10 minutes and I’ll dole out 50 voluminous story ideas and themes. But give me an hour to tend to the stuffy details and I’ll have created a jagged, eclectic maze of weirdness. I have a flare for tumbling down rabbit holes of inspiration and intrigue. I have a passion for making things more beautiful and heartfelt and zingy–whether it be a headline or a story concept. Which is also to say that something like a plain-spoken legal contract or disclaimer is not exactly my forte.
But I’m also a hard worker, and I’m serious about my success. Just as much as I live for creative immersion, I love the buzzy energy of getting things done-efficiently, safely, resolutely.
Enter Amira’s legal bundles. I’d for sure be akin to Alice wandering helplessly about Wonderland without them. She’s a hot-shot attorney who found a gaping hole in the digital world of influence and sales: brilliant, creative people and their promising online businesses weren’t properly protected from legal threats. And they didn’t even know it!
So, what did Amira do? Why, savvy as she is, she built a mega-magical domain of easy-to-follow, fill-in-the-blanks legal templates for anyone who aims to make serious money online. It’s such a brilliant business model, I can’t even tell you. In fact, I might have to call upon her for a future entrepreneur-geared feature story (shhh! don’t tell her I said that just yet; I’ve got to assemble my fancy pitch first). Her legal bundles are so useful and needed and fool-proof, you can almost hear the angels singing.
But, wait; this is more than a self-serving review…
OK, but listen. I know what you might be thinking (because I think it dozens of times a day). But, before you grow suspicious that I’m only pushing her product for personal gain, let me share a few details about me. I’m a journalist by profession who writes for women-geared media sources like O, the Oprah Magazine, POPSUGAR and Marie Claire. Massive brands trust me to interview eminent experts and research weighty topics and craft essays and stories in representation of them. I take that role extraordinarily seriously.
Which means I don’t toss out product recommendations or advice without haven’t devoted myself to exploring the unseen details. Trying to squeeze money out of someone for mere personal gain is not my scene. My goal is that every reader receives something valuable as a result of my expertise–whether devouring a piece that offers insight into freeing themselves from a heart-wrenching, toxic relationship or being smacked with a delicious book round-up that’ll spark their soul. In essence, I care. Like a lot. I want all of my readers to feel empowered, healthy, smart and successful.
I’m also the creator and editor of this conscious, spunky lifestyle and personal development media brand, The Wonder Report, I’m in the midst of releasing a 97-page digital workbook, the 21-day Radical Life Renovation, and deep in the caverns of authoring a book for a major publishing house. Oh, yeah, and a mom to a magical, rambunctious, smarty-pants toddler who shouts orders at me from sunrise to sundown. So, yeah, I’m next-level busy. I always have too many tabs open.
Which is also to say that the last thing I need is to worry that my website is missing a proper private policy. I’m totally cool with an actual attorney doing that discombobulating work for me–allowing me to then fill in the holes with my sunny, overzealous fare.
Anyway. Let me arrive a the point. I’m not here to waste your time. I do what I do because I want everyone who connects with my words to feel emboldened and strong, and to have their own back. Because in this life and in this world, if you don’t, no one else across ocean and sky ever will.
Trust me; your online business needs legal protection…
So, grow your business, you world-changer. Stretch out your wingspan and make your greatness known. Shout your products and services and specials. Unpack the latest and greatest in your professional repertoire. Wow the masses with your genius and heart. Give them what they want. Deep down, you know what you’re capable of. But, before you step all the way out, save your own ass.
Here’s the link to get the goods. If you purchase, I’ll get a commission, which is lovely because I poured so much of my untethered weirdness into building this word-baby for you. And, if you snag the legal bundle (which you totally should), it’ll allow me to continue curating more empowering, solution-centric ideas, inspirations and news for your brain, your soul and your style. Oh, and for your money-making aspirations, too. Never shame in that.
So, cheers to your newly-protected online business (and every dizzying entrepreneurial vision you’ve got dancing about your head)!
