😬 Avoid this “uh-oh!”

True story: Molly, a dermatologist, absolutely loved her in-person practice.

She was the go-to guru for psoriasis, having cracked the code with a magical mix of self-care routines, creams, and dietary tips that transformed her patients’ dry skin into radiant confidence boosters.🧴

Her patients were so thrilled with their results that they started nudging her to hop onto TikTok and share her wisdom with the world.

Molly finally gave in, thinking, “Why not?” and boom—her TikTok following skyrocketed!

Suddenly, she was getting DMs from people all over the world asking for advice.

Riding this wave of excitement, Molly expanded to Instagram and YouTube to connect with more fans.

Then came the plot twist.🥨

One day, she received an email from a state medical board.

They were investigating her for practicing dermatology without a license on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube.

The board had officially opened an investigation.

Uh-oh.

🤦 Major facepalm moment.

Molly was flabbergasted.

She hadn’t really thought about the legal pitfalls before jumping into the TikTok universe headfirst. And now she was in a bind.

Are you dreaming of reaching a bigger audience too, but prefer to avoid the whole investigation thing?
