Ep 033: Your Legal Checklist with Bobby Klinck

By Bobby Klinck | YOG Podcast

Jul 03

Today, I’m going to do things a little differently. Instead of having a special guest expert on the podcast, this episode will begin a series of shows where I’ll be addressing the legal issues that online entrepreneurs face. Now, I know I can’t teach you everything about the law, but I also know I can’t give you great lessons if I’m only doing my usual five-minute legal lessons at the end of other shows. So these next few episodes will give you more in-depth looks at the things you need to know to protect yourself legally.

To kick things off, I’m giving you a roadmap of sorts that covers the six major legal issues I see online entrepreneurs struggle with in their businesses. Think of this episode as a checklist of the big picture issues that, in my view, every single online entrepreneur needs to be aware of and take action on to ensure they’ve got themselves—and their businesses—covered.
