Who We Are
"It doesn't really matter if my business succeeds" ...
said none of our clients, ever.
You probably don't want to spend your days researching legal issues -- what interview questions can I ask prospective employees? How do I stop someone from ripping off my branding? Are there laws about how I offer gift cards? How do I train my staff for this big event?
Anybody can give you information (some people can even give you "good" information!), but it comes with a price. Because our business model is to "team up" with you and your other advisors, that information is included in your monthly fee, and you're not nickel-and-dimed to get it -- want business updates? Got it. Want employment law tips? Got it. Want reminders of your filing deadlines and when you need to do stuff? Got it. Want lots of free content that you can use to help you better make your business decisions, or at least know what questions to ask of your team? Got it.
