Are you finally ready to launch your business yet you have no idea about what you need legally or where to get it?

Are you “stressed” thinking about all the Internet trolls out there and have fear of launching
your products and services out of fear of being hacked?

Have you started your business and you’ve been pretty successful on the marketing and money
side but KNOW that you have some legal “stuff” you need to take care of but you’re not sure exactly what?

We’ve all been there.

As an attorney, business coach and entrepreneur myself, I see thousands of people who are ready
to finally ditch that full-time job for full-time entrepreneurship but often never make it out the gate
because they are afraid the “Legal cuffs” are going to get slapped on them.

OR they aren’t sure of what they need to do or what questions to ask a lawyer so they just keep
​​​​​​​operating in fear and hoping for the best.

That’s why I’ve created:

This is a free legal workshop series where I go into depth on the specific things you need in order to make your business legal fit to face any storm WHILE still being extremely profitable!

Yep. It can be done and I’m going to show you how.

Each class is based on a specific topic so choose the one that’s of interest to you or be a ROCKSTAR and take them all! More knowledge is better than none right?

IF you have want to finally understand everything you need to know before you start or maybe you’ve just had burning questions and you haven’t made an appointment with a lawyer yet, come join me and get the BEST entrepreneur-specific legal education of your life…without going to law school.

AND without all that confusing legal language (blah blah furthermore, extenuating circumstances, blah blah).

They say 'the more you tell, the more you sell' which is true... but only if people actually
read what you write. People read text that's punchy, interesting and help

Now I know how confusing legal can be. It may not be your specialty or even your interest.

However, if you want to make money, do what you love and avoid a disaster that could shut
down your business, you need to know all you can about it.

The law runs our lives and it’s my mission to ensure that you can live yours…

Don’t wait until the law finds you…be proactive and let’s get you out there
without sacrificing your safety or sanity!

I can’t wait to see you in class.

Much Love & Empowerment,

Jo-Ná

The trust part was big because I don't have a lot of extra time and wanted to hire someone who could make getting my legal house in order as stress-free as possible. Jo-Ná did all of the above and  more. Jo-Ná has a positive, encouraging and supportive attitude, which makes all of the difference in the world.

Fortunately, I met her before launching my high-end mastermind. She thinks three steps ahead and goes above and beyond for her clients. I am so happy to have her on my team.”

Jo-Ná has been an essential member of my team in helping me build my career as an Interior Designer.  We met at Woman’s Entrepreneur Breakfast that I co-hosted, and since that day she has been not only the legal support that I needed, but also in guiding
​​​​​​​me to take the best step forward in all the decisions I have to make for my business and brand.  She is fast to respond and always gives me the best answers and actions to move forward. Thank you Jo-Ná!

I came to Jo-Ná because i discovered that some people had stolen my Committed Impulse online course and were selling it on their websites. But I found great comfort in how Jo-Ná and her team immediately went to work to take down the websites that were illegally selling my content. I felt that  she  really listened to me, and was passionate to get my problem resolved. I highly recommend working with Jo-Ná. I would work with her again with no hesitation.

We needed to uplevel the legal foundation of our business and re-do outdated student agreements. Jo-Ná and her team have been phenomenal to work with - the process was seamless, and every question or customization we brought forward was met with kindness and professionalism. I can't tell you how good it feels to know Jo-Ná has our back, creating a safe legal container for us to do our best work. Thank you!”

Hiring Jo-Ná and going pro with my legal matters has created a feeling of calm that’s worth more than money can buy.”
