My guest today is Autumn Witt Boyd of the Legal Roadmap® Podcast where she teaches business owners how to protect their rights and stay out of legal hot water.

I’m so excited to have Autumn on the show today because ever since I heard her on the Being Boss Podcast back in 2016, I’ve been listening to her show and recommending it to my community because I think it’s so important to be knowledgeable and empowered when it comes to the legal and financial aspects of our businesses.

So if you’ve ever worried that you don’t know what you don’t know when it comes to the legal aspects of your business, you’re not gonna wanna miss this episode!

Today we’re talking about:

  • How Autumn transitioned from a traditional law firm to starting a virtual law firm specializing in copywriting, trademarks and contracts
  • How Autumns husband helped push her to start her own business
  • Some challenges Autumn faced when she first started out
  • Why Autumn started a podcast to help market her services
  • Why it’s so important to have a contract in place with your clients
  • Some key items to include in your contract
  • The three searches you should be doing when you pick your business name
  • Strategies and tactics Autumn has used to grow her business
  • The importance of relationship building
  • How Autumn started to leverage digital products in her business
  • Resources for doing it yourself.
  • Autumn’s advice for someone who is struggling to move forward in their side hustle
  • The one belief Autumn had to change about herself to get where she is today.

My favorite quotes from Autumn:

  • “If you are a service provider who works 1:1 especially at a higher level or on bigger projects, don’t forget that it really is a people business and that is what will bring better clients to you”
  • “The more you can talk to people the more you will learn what people actually need to know, what questions they are asking, what they need help with”
