Legal shouldn’t be the “next step”… It should be your first one.
To protect you from anything that *could* happen.
→ Accidentally using a program name that’s trademarked
→ Scope-creep on projects
→ Clients that don’t pay on time (or at all!)
→ Competitors stealing your content (or worse– your programs!)
I DON’T WANT TO SCARE YOU. I WANT TO PREPARE YOU.
Business isn’t all $10k months, and sold out launches.
It can get messy – unless you cover your a$$ets, and get legally legit.
I’m Amy! Founder of Artful Contracts
My mission is to make the legal aspects of online business more accessible to everyone so you can build your business with confidence knowing you can handle whatever business comes your way.
I became a lawyer because I wanted to help people ⚖️
At the end of college, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do yet, but I knew I wanted to be in a position to change things for the better. I thought getting a law degree would give me the leverage to do that. But after law school, I ended up in a small local law firm working with real estate developers and other local small businesses.
I quickly realized that the traditional legal model worked well for established business owners, but so many more businesses were falling through the cracks.
Right now, the law is not designed to be accessible.
Our legal system is slow to evolve and slow to change, which means many lawyers are out of touch with modern business owners. The only way to access legal knowledge is to walk into a fancy, intimidating lobby, make a sit-down, in-person appointment with a grey-haired man who won’t take your plans seriously, and drain your wallet trying to explain your online business to someone who refuses to use email… 🤦♀️
Many people, especially women, would rather avoid that whole process entirely, which leaves them open to huge legal risks. In my entire time at that law firm, I only worked with one female business owner. Every other client was male, white, and over 50.
I decided to change that and meet online business owners like you where you're at by lowering the barrier to entry - providing legal education in your environment, making it easy to actually figure out what you need, and making it inexpensive to protect your businesses so you can grow with confidence.
Since then, I’ve helped my clients & students:
- Stop someone else from stealing and selling his program and 3 other business owner’s programs just by using my Cease & Desist template
- Impress their clients with professional and detailed contracts - and say “Yes” when the client asks for an NDA last-minute
- Avoid nightmare clients - because if they won’t sign a contract, they probably weren’t planning on respecting your boundaries (or paying)
- Transition to online practice with confidence knowing their marketing & website are up to snuff
- Protect their personal assets from the risks of doing business by forming an LLC and running it the right way
More about me:
🦞 I was born and raised in New England, say wicked way too often, and love chowdah and lobstah rolls (r's are optional here)
🌊 I'm a lake girl who lives by the ocean - my uncle called me blonde fish when I was little because I was constantly in the water
😻 I spend about 20% of every workday trying to type around a cat because apparently, my desk is the only comfortable place to sleep
👯♀️ I've had the same best friend since we were 13. We lived together for one year after college and realized we were better friends than roommates 😅
💕 I have two adorable nephews who I love with all my heart. The youngest was born on my birthday. Best birthday present ever 😍
🎿 I was born with skis on my feet. JK but we are a huge skiing family and I learned about it as soon as I could walk. My brother is continuing the tradition with his boys
🤓 I was raised by Trekkies and can tell you more than you'd ever need to know about the history of the United Federation of Planets
🎶 I sang in an a cappella group in college. And I went to Cornell. So I'm basically Andy from the Office. Yes, my life was Pitch Perfect.
⚖️ I went to law school because I wanted to change the world for the better (true story) and then quit my law firm job because the traditional legal system leaves too many people behind
