Freelancers and Coaches, this one is for you. There has been enormous growth in freelancing, coaching, and small business creation during the past decade. As a freelancer or coach, you are setting personal and professional goals and taking giant, sometimes risky steps to achieve them. We applaud you! We also want to make sure that you are protecting yourself. We are going to ramble off a list of questions that we ask our freelancing and coaching clients. These questions often illuminate places where you might be held personally liable---and we don’t want that to happen.
Have you created an official business to protect yourself from personal liability?
If you have created a business, do you know when and how to pay your taxes?
Do you pay self-employment taxes?
Are their misleading claims on your social media, website, and/or marketing materials?
Do you own the rights to the name of your business?
Do you own the rights to the products you create?
Are you using client contracts?
Are your client contracts legally enforceable?
Do your contracts support or harm your business interests?
Do you have a procedure for terminating clients?
Do you have insurance? We aren’t talking about health insurance (although this is equally as important).
