Which laws should you follow in the virtual world?

by | Jan 17, 2022 | DIY Legal Master Classes

I was talking with a client, John, not too long ago. (Not his real name for confidentiality reasons, natch).

John told me that when COVID hit, he left his job in corporate America and decided it was finally time to focus on his coaching business.

John got his health coaching certification years ago, but until now his coaching business has been only a side hustle.

When his other income vaporized, he realized that he could make a full-time income with a 100%-online business.

He could work with clients solely through Zoom or phone from anywhere – and also spend more time living with his girlfriend in a different state and snuggling up on the couch together eating popcorn and watching “Yellowstone”.

He wanted to finally fulfill his dream of helping others all over the world, live half-time with his girlfriend AND make a solid income.

But he was confused…

John had listened to my podcast enough to know that he DID want to register his business to make it “official”…but he didn’t know where to register it or which laws to follow.

John is not alone in asking…. I get this question all.the.time.

There are a few things you need to know and a few steps to take when it comes to which laws apply.

There are 4 main steps for knowing whose laws to follow in the virtual online space.

The first step is getting clear about your business address.

Sounds easy, right? It’s not always so simple – like for John who wants to split his time between his house and his girlfriend’s place. What should his biz address be?

Here’s what my client Laura Belgray said about getting clear about the legal parts of biz in the online space:



Getting clear about which laws to follow helps you feel more confident as you see clients all over the world and expand your biz from your kitchen table – or, in John’s case, from his girlfriend’s couch before he snuggles up with her, chomps on popcorn and watches Kevin Costner and his cowboys riding horses across the “Yellowstone Dutton Ranch” in gorgeous Bozeman, Montana.

Here’s to safely having a virtual business…and knowing which laws to follow!
