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

That’s why in today’s episode, we’re talking with online business attorney Paige Griffith, and diving into foundational legal steps to start making money with your passion project online.

Paige is the owner of a virtual law firm working with online businesses and wedding industry professionals. She is a certified Juris Doctor barred in the state of Montana and holds a double B.A. in Economics and Political Science.
