096: How to Legally Protect Your Business (Without Hefty Lawyers Fees) — with Bobby Klinck

If you’ve ever scrolled to the bottom of a website, you’ve probably seen three links: Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, and Disclaimer. Whether or not you’ve actually clicked these links is a different question—but if you have a website, they’re the baseline for protecting yourself and your business.

I know legal stuff can seem intimidating—and lawyers are expensive—which is why I invited today’s guest on the show.

Bobby Klinck is a lawyer and online entrepreneur who helps other online entrepreneurs get their legal protection in place quickly, easily, and affordably. Unlike typical lawyers, Bobby’s whiteboard is filled with notes on platform building, inbound marketing, and sales funnels. His unique mix of expertise makes him the perfect person to teach legal to entrepreneurs and bloggers in the online space.

Bobby graduated from Harvard Law School and worked at prestigious law firms before transforming from a traditional career path into one of his own. On top of making legal stuff less daunting, Bobby knows a thing or two about building a business on your own terms … and he’s sharing it all with us today.

I can’t wait for you to hear his amazing insights in today’s episode!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • How to break out of a traditional working structure and become an expert resource provider on your own terms

  • Simple tips to help you spot potential legal issues in the day-to-day operations of your business

  • How the spirit of radical giving accelerated the success of his online business and earned him an invite to teach in one of Amy Porterfield’s courses

  • Basic legal protections all online entrepreneurs, bloggers, and influencers should have in place on their website and when making brand deals

  • When to get an agreement in writing—and what exactly counts as “in writing”
