The other day I was being interviewed as a legal guest expert on a bonus call for a #rockstar coach (oooh! I love doing bonus calls – I did 6 last week alone!)
The #rockstar coach had invited me on the call to help her tribe know what legal steps to take and in what order, as their business grows. When we opened the line for live Q&A, a gal shared that she was just starting her coaching practice.
She asked: “If I have limited funds, what is most important for me to do FIRST to legally protect myself?”
Such a great question. Each situation is slightly different based on how long you have been in business, your unique background and goals for the future, for sure, so I needed more info.
“Do you have a website?”
She said yes. (By the way, you don’t HAVE to have a website to start coaching. When I first started my Legal Coaching side of my practice back in 2012, I didn’t have a Legal Coaching website for 9 months – can you believe it? I just had my Health Coaching website at the time…and my legal business took off, mostly by word of mouth.)
Because she had a website, there is one legal document that you’ll want to have in place to give you a base layer of protection right from the start – no matter what kind of business you have. I told her:
“If you have a website, your Website Disclaimer is your first legal step.”
Why? Your website is the face of your business to the world. It plays an important part in showcasing your brand, your credibility and your personality.
The last thing you want is someone just browsing your site, checking things out, reading a blog post or two and then getting confused about who you are or what you do.
:: If you’re a Health Coach, you don’t want them thinking you are a medical doctor.
:: If you’re a Business Coach, you don’t want them to think you’re their financial advisor.
:: If you’re a Spiritual Healer, you don’t want them to think you’re giving psychological advice.
See what I mean?
You want your website visitors to know that you’re just providing education and information through your site, that they can’t just take what they read and apply it to their lives willy-nilly, and that they can’t rely on what you say and, if something goes wrong, come after you.
If you have a website, your first legal step is to have a really strong and thorough Website Disclaimer that creates CLARITY about what you do (and don’t do) in your business to limit your liability.
Clarity is key to keeping you safe and protected as a business owner. (In fact, it’s one of 7 key “guiding principles” I’ll be talking about in my upcoming book.)
