hey there


Tell me if this sounds familiar…

You’ve got a talent people will pay you for. You’re fired up about it. You’re ready to go. And just as you’re about to accept your first payment (Cha-Ching!), you panic!

“Am I doing this legally?” you wonder.

“Do I need to be doing something more official for Pam here to pay me?”

“LLC? Federal Tax ID? Do I need all these just to get started?”

Look, I know, all the legal steps to small business and mumbo-jumbo can slow us down. 

If you don’t know the right next step to take, and don’t have a professional you trust to help you out, it’s easy to get stuck.

Meet Paige Griffith

Paige is the owner of a virtual law firm working with online businesses and wedding industry professionals.
