I joined a Private Mastermind group this year.
That’s because I wanted an opportunity to be around like-minded entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs who are:
One more thing: The leader of our group is one of the top PR people in the world. And he’s one heck of an entrepreneur in his own right. So there’s that. Anyway…
One of our members is a business attorney.
In one of our group discussions, she mentioned that she was in the process of putting together a “10 Commandments For Entrepreneurs” type of post.
It sounded like it would be a cool post-especially since it was going to be centered around the legalities that every entrepreneur, small business owner, and franchise business owners have to deal with.
If you’re smart, you’ll take the time to learn all you can about the legalities involved in small business ownership.
On one hand, I don’t expect you to spend hours at the library reading legal journals and some of those other thick items that “must not be removed from the premises.”
But I do expect you to know enough to make sure you’re covered in the event that something related to your business goes south.
Of course hiring a competent business attorney early on would be a fine start.
Are you feeling me?
Entrepreneurs: The 10 Commandments Of All Things Legal
My feeling, when it comes to all things legal, is that business laws are important…but boring.
In other words, even though all entrepreneurs have to deal with business legalities, the topic itself is not very exciting. (Unless you’re a lawyer.)
In any event, it IS important to know what you need to do before you start a business, as well as when you’re running it.
That’s why it’s crucial for you to read Ruth Carter‘s post.
Is it a heart-pounding read? Kind of not.
Is it boring? Not at all.
Is it a good read?
Why the heck do you think I’m sharing it with you?
