Legal 1.0 for Small Businesses with Kristen Herwitz

  • The Hivery Mill Valley 38 Miller Avenue #20 Mill Valley, CA 94941 (map)

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery. This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community.


Are you starting a business and worrying about legal mistakes you don't even know you're making? Have you already built a business or is your new venture gaining momentum, and yet you haven't taken the time to get appropriate legal protections in place? Do you feel overwhelmed about figuring out what your legal needs are and which ones to tackle first?

If you don't know exactly what you need or you're a little scared to find out what you've been missing, you're not alone. We'll explore some common (and expensive!) legal pitfalls, and you'll find out how to avoid them with a little planning. Then we'll dive into the legal strategies you should be using to protect yourself and the brand, content, products, and business you're pouring your heart and soul into creating. You'll discover some of your legal blindspots, and you'll leave knowing the next step towards taking care of your business and protecting what you create.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
