Nathan and I have recently hired a lawyer for our business. Personally, I'm kind-of impressed with myself for having gone through the process and come out the other side successful. I've never met with a lawyer in my life, much less hired one. I wanted to share my experience with you to help you as you interview and hire lawyers for your small (or large) business.
One of the things that will really help get a new business off to a good start is a business plan. If you’re like me, you’ve never heard of this before, but don’t worry, they’re not too hard.
I feel the same way right now about lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, manufacturers, business owners, and the Small Business Administration – THEY ARE SO GREAT! The difference is that this time I was the one who was worried they'd be mean, not other people, but maybe that just makes it a double bonus to prove myself wrong.
We had 14 hard-hitting questions, and as excited as I was to find out what Nathan was thinking, I also had some butterflies in my tummy when we started.
So, first off, I have a big, awesome announcement to make for this post: We officially have a name!!
I know pretty much NOTHING when it comes to starting or running a business. As I’ve been learning just how much is involved in starting a business, I’ve begun to have a few “AAAHHHH” feelings as the mountain of work I have to do comes into focus more and more.
