What would you say is the most important marketing piece of your business?
As a service-based entrepreneur, YOU (of course!) are the most important thing, but where does your business live?
Chances are good that your business lives on the internet. Or more specifically on a website. Your website is your storefront, where people can go to learn more about you.

Depending on what your website is about - the Federal Gov’t may also have an opportunity to come say hello (and not in the hey, what's up way....)
Most countries have such laws, and the Canada and the EU have some pretty extensive requirements. If you have a website collecting emails, make sure you have this in place!
YES, YOU REALLY DO NEED ONE.
Know what else you need? Disclaimers! Yes, if you are a coach, service-provider, selling products, basically if you have an online business dealing with the public, you need disclaimers on your website to protect your business.
