Who is Startup, Legally for?
Online entrepreneurs, side hustles, startups, and any business within the first couple years that has not hired an attorney. It is designed to get you by until you can afford an attorney. The information in Startup, Legally teaches you how to protect your business in its early stages and how to handle the paperwork involved in starting a business.

In other words, this course is designed to save you the time of scouring the internet and give you the peace of mind that you are on the right track legally. We are not your attorney but we will give you good information and to help you make your own decisions that are best for your business!
Who is it NOT for?
Startups that are looking to raise capital from investors that may be subject to SEC regulations. Anyone that can afford thousands for a lawyer to make sure you are planning correctly should strongly consider it.
