A personal message from Kimberly…
I don’t know about you, but every time I speak with a lawyer it always makes me want to triple check that I’ve dotted all my T’s and crossed my I’s...or is it the other way around? I get real weird around, lawyers usually. Ever since I was bought out from my first e-commerce company, going through three months of negotiations and legal jargon with a fine tooth comb, I wish legal trouble on no man or woman.
That’s why it was imperative that I bring attorney Andrea Sager on The Princess and the B. Because, so often as creative entrepreneurs, as artists in the world of business, we forget to cross the T’s and dot the I’s of trademarks, content protection, and the legalities of running a business.
While, yes, it pays to be in your genius zone, working on your art, making your connections, and signing those clients, having your contracts be in order, and your business be rockin’ you’ve got to at least be fluent in the art of business and not just the art of your art and your gifts.
