Shout out to the awesomeness of Lisa Fraley, the lawyer who spoke to our group. She’s the only person I’ve ever heard talk about legal paperwork in a way that felt spirit connected. So helpful to alleviating my mega-resistance around participating in the legal aspects of business. Now I’m so much more confident about the whole topic and process.  It no longer feels like a looming monster I can’t quite see or comprehend.

- Serena Davidson

Photographer & Personal (R)evolution Guide

Something truly magical happens when Lisa is on stage – her excitement about the law is so contagious! I’ve seen her webinars over the years, but I was able to catch her at a live event and wow! I felt everyone in the room getting excited, raising their hands and feeling caught up in the energy of how we can protect ourselves legally as healers and spiritual entrepreneurs.

I also really benefitted from knowing how each agreement is tied to a chakra to create empowerment around the law – instead of being dry and boring! Catch her in person or have her at your next event. Her energy is incredible!

- Nicole Strychaz

Owner of The Awakened Professional, Professional Writer & Editor

I love Lisa’s stage presence and how she aligned “legalese” to the 7 chakras. Lisa makes it so straightforward and easy to understand. Every heart-centered entrepreneur needs to know Lisa and experience her amazingly centered presentations.

- Pamela Lynch

Inspirational Book Whisper & Founder of Aiesha Publishing Company

Legal issues scare me but Lisa turned legalese into legal-ease! The way she aligned the 7 main legal aspects for a business owner with the 7 chakras helps me now understand what exactly I need to do as a biz owner.

Looking for a legal expert to speak at your event?
Need a lawyer to share legal tips on your next podcast episode or webinar?

You’re in luck, my friend.

I’ve spoken on dozens of stages large and small, appearing before a crowd of 1,000 to giving a keynote speech at a room-packed event. I’ve led intimate workshops, corporate lunch-and-learns, and given hundreds of interviews for webinars, podcasts and bonus calls.

Each talk turns legalese into legal ease while teaching how to get legally covered
in a way that’s accessible, approachable, and affordable – and full of Legal Love™.

Please choose from the following topics, but know that my talk will be tailored to the needs of each audience:

Many entrepreneurs hold back and play small because they don’t feel safe and secure enough to step up and play big. What if I told you that there are 7 easy legal steps that help you go from feeling stuck and scared to confident and empowered as a business owner?

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • 7 easy legal steps that most entrepreneurs need as their business grows – and when to take each one
  • How each step aligns with one of the 7 chakras – the energy centers of the body – and why that’s important to making money
  • What legal steps to take now (and what can wait) so you don’t have to worry about doing something wrong, getting in trouble, or missing key steps

After this talk, you’ll no longer worry about being sued or losing your business because you’ll know how to keep your income, content and brand safe.

When you’re just starting out, you need to know how to spend your money wisely and what legal steps are most important to take first. This talk tells you how.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • The 3 most important legal steps for a brand new business owner
  • What policies need to be in writing to protect your income
  • How to prioritize what legal steps to take now so you don’t waste time or money on things you don’t need right away

If you’re not sure where to start as a new business owner or wondering if you’re doing everything right to make your business legit, you’ll get clarity about where to begin and what to do next.

Think you have to spend thousands of dollars to get good legal protection? Not true! Learn how to maximize your money and spend your resources wisely when you’re on a shoestring budget.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • How to bootstrap your legal protection and save thousands
  • What legal steps you can do yourself – and when you really should work with a lawyer
  • How to know if that generic, cut-and-paste legal document you got from an online service is leaving you with holes the size of swiss cheese

You’ll learn how to spend your money wisely, and which legal steps are the best investment for your hard-earned dollars when you’re on a limited budget.

Whether you’re launching your first website or you’re a seasoned pro, EVERY online entrepreneur needs certain legal steps to protect website content and online course materials  – no matter your income bracket.  

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • How to protect your website content from copycats and swipers
  • Why having sales terms with key legal language gives you the upper hand if someone swipes your stuff
  • What steps to take to strengthen boundaries around your website content, course content and original work

From covering your buns on your website to creating sales terms that work across continents, you’ll learn the legal low-down for online entrepreneurs.

You know that eating whole foods and more leafy greens is like preventative health care for the body. Well, I like to say that getting legally covered is like preventative care for your business.

When you learn how to get your legal ducks in a row, you can avoid confusion and headaches that keep you awake at night wondering if you’re leaving yourself and your practice exposed.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • The 5 words you can’t say if you’re not a licensed practitioner (no matter what state you are located in!)
  • How to be clear on your website and in your programs about what you do – and don’t do – so clients don’t get confused and come after you
  • What you absolutely need to get in writing BEFORE you start working with clients

You’ll walk away with a checklist of steps to put in place to protect yourself and your biz.

Intellectual property protections are some of the highest rights you can have as a business owner. Yet, they can feel confusing and overwhelming if you don’t know what they are or when you really need them.

If you have a business name, logo or tagline or you want to protect the brand that you’ve worked so hard to build, it’s important to understand how Copyrights and Trademarks can protect your work.

In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • How to know if you should trademark your biz name, tagline, program name or logo.
  • What to Copyright and what to Trademark.
  • Why having intellectual property raises the financial value of your business.

Knowing when to claim your rights and file your marks allows you to honor your work and protect your brand.

Want to cover specific topics that you you don’t see above? You can ask general questions and get legal tips in a full 60-minute Q&A session with your audience.

Here’s how it works: You and your tribe will submit questions in advance which will be compiled by topic. Please note that the questions will be answered as time permits and that general information will be shared – in a way that allows everyone on the call to benefit from the answers.

Should you wish to have a custom talk about a topic other than one listed above, please contact us at speaking@lisafraley.com.
