DESTINATION LEGAL IS HERE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER...
and your passion-based business more PROTECTED & PROFESSIONAL.
Are you unsure of what contracts you need, how to protect your copyright, or even how to make sure your website is actually legally compliant? As an attorney for coaches and online business owners, I understand the legal jargon and have spent years reviewing and creating contracts, protecting brands and websites for awesome entrepreneurs just like you.
It does not have to be a huge pain or break the bank to legally protect your business!
But I know that many (many) attorneys can be mongo expensive and intimidating to work with, which is why I decided to come on over and help you here.
As an online business owner myself, I know the special requirements needed to tackle this great big world wide web.
HERE ARE THE WAYS I CAN HELP YOU:
You are totally confused by the legal side of building your online business.
You don't know what you need to protect your business and your income.
But now you do.
With me on your team, you are totally clear on how and what you need to protect yourself. With contracts and website policies, you know that strong legal foundation is now in place.
You are unsure if any of the legal stuff you have in place is actually protecting your business.
Now that you have rock solid contracts in working with your clients and team, you feel totally empowered as that savvy CEO. And that fantastic brand name? You can be confident in spreading it far and wide now that it’s a registered trademark - it’s YOURS baby!
You are scared of being sued.
You are scared of your content being stolen.
Whew. Time to breathe. Now that every piece of your biz is legally protected with the right contracts, website policies, disclaimers, and IP protection, you can sleep better at night and get back to doing what you do best - rocking it in your business!
Hey hey! I'm Sarah, lawyer and online business owner. After a few years at a law firm and career jumps along the way, I ended up falling in love with online business and the freedom (hello, travel!) that it provided me. I started a few of my own, but through it all, everyone I knew was asking me for legal help and when I saw how much that information was needed.
Entrepreneurship has enough pitfalls without stressing constantly about the legal side. I am here to help you!
I created Destination Legal to support coaches and online entrepreneurs in getting to the point where they are protecting (and excited about) their thriving business.
I knew pretty quickly that law firm life wasn’t for me. I had always been a big traveler, craved adventure, and wanted life outside 4 walls. I knew I was different but just didn’t know why. (sound familiar?)
The only thing I REALLY knew in my core was that I wanted the FLEXIBILITY & FREEDOM to work from anywhere, including a coffee shop, the beach, or Thailand. Finally, back in 2012, I learned that there were people doing this! I knew immediately in my heart that this was my future. I had no idea how to get it but just knowing there were people like me out there was such a huge step.
THREE MONTHS LATER I LEFT MY 9-5.
I spent the next few years building online businesses, consulting, and traveling. I traveled to over 20 countries, saw the sunset in Santorini, had lunch in Petra, went caving in Vietnam, rode a gondola in Venice, and ate baklava in Istanbul. All while working from my laptop.
The more coaches and entrepreneurs I met, the more legal help I saw they needed (and were asking for). I also saw what happened when they didn't get the legal help... it wasn't pretty. What came easily to me thanks to years of education, time, and money, was a huge struggle for others. I wanted to help ease their mind and build their business in a smart way. I saw too many friends get burned and knew there was another way! Whether it was needing a contract, having to deal with a refund issue, wanting to protect their new online course, or realizing they needed policies on their website - I was getting lots of questions. I was introduced to coaching and saw how many people were doing such amazing things but without the legal protection they need (#scary).
I knew I could make an impact through helping online entrepreneurs build their businesses on a solid legal foundation...and
