There are Three Things That Will Ruin Your Life Fast: Bad Sex, Bad Shellfish, and Bad Clients. (Especially if they never signed a contract). 

You probably haven't been worried about stuffy formalities like contracts, because, I mean, THIS IS 2018 AND EVERYONE IS COOL ON THE INTERNET. But sending off a Paypal invoice isn't enough when:

  • Your client wants a refund—after you've already put in 40 hours worth of work
  • Your client just stops paying your invoices and goes MIA 
  • Your client keeps asking you to do things outside the scope
  • They argue that you agreed to do X, Y or Z; you don't remember it that way
  • You want to terminate a client relationship midway through—but have no idea how
  • Something goes wrong...and then they claim you owe them money in lost time & profits
  • A client gets upset and decides to file a legal claim against your business <insert panic here> 

And What About Customers Enrolling in Your Online Course? Buying Your Program? Downloading Your eBook? Purchasing Your Digital Product? 

You've probably considered creating a digital product, workshop, program, course, eBook, or downloadable something (very good choice), in which case you still need to have an ironclad contract in place. (Plus a Privacy Policy, which is actually the law in the United States.) But you're clearly not going to send every customer on the Internet an agreement like the one you might send a client. So how do you protect yourself?

  • What do you do if they download everything and then immediately request a refund? 
  • What if someone takes your advice and then gets themselves into trouble—and wants to blame you?
  • What if they take your materials and copy them—and then start sharing them, using them as "inspiration," selling them under a different name, or on the actual internet black market for half the price, which is absolutely a thing?  

And What About All of the Other Legal Must-Have That You Need to Run an Online Business By Law?  

  • Can you just name your business or your product anything you want? (Hint: that's definitely a big, fat no).
  • Are you accidentally "commingling funds" by mixing your business money and your personal money? (You will get CRUSHED.)
  • Do you need to formally register your business with the state or the country, orrrrr.....? 
  • Should I be saving for taxes, and, like, how much? (The answer: depends on one very important thing).
  • What things are considered business expenses, anyway and how do I write these off? (Psst, your home office counts.)
  • What if I want to hire someone? Do I need an agreement for them? (YES, YOU DO.) 
  • What if I team up with someone to co-run an event, or co-create a workshop, or co-offer a service? (A well-thought-out contract is a must.)
