FAQ

Are you sure this course isn’t filled with “lawyer talk”?

We at If I Made spent hours and hours interviewing smart lawyers and the like and then more hours and hours condensing and translating their years of education and expertise into something simple, concise, accurate, and approachable… (Yeah we really took one for the team on this one.) We promise you—we’ve kept the lawyer took to a minimum and included a glossary or any legal lingo that might trip you up.

How do I know if this course is right for me?

Whether you’re skipping or stumbling through the door doesn’t change a thing. Whether you’re just starting a new business or you’ve been at it a while and know you still need to get your sh*t together, if you want to run a serious business and set yourself up for success, then this course is for you.

What makes this course different from any other
legal info I can Google?

The bulk of our information comes from a lawyer who has specialized in legal work for creative entrepreneurs for years. We distilled it, stirred in the knowledge of tax and insurance specialists, translated all of that to simple language, and had more lawyers review it to make sure our advice was bullets. Then we had a bunch of creatives review it to make sure they could understand it all. (And they could! Yay!) It’s explained using
real world examples of photographers, event planners, florists, designers, and artists,
and understands the nuances of the mind of creatives as well as the intricacies of
creative businesses.

How good are these contract templates you’re selling?

All of our contracts are written by an attorney who specializes in working with creative entrepreneurs. They have been tried and tested and include all the industry-specific bases you need covered. Once you buy a contract—it’s yours to keep forever.
It won’t expire.

CAN THIS LEGAL COURSE REALLY HELP ME RUN MY SPECIFIC KIND OF BUSINESS?

Here’s the thing—businesses are like houses. Before you can start customizing the details, you have to lay the foundation. The foundation is most of what you need for your business too. Think of it as a pyramid with all the stuff in this course being a big, wide base, and the specialized advice making up just the top 10% or so.

How do I know if this course is right for me?

Will I need to hire an attorney to help me complete the course?

Probably not, but maybe. You may be able to take care of everything on your own. But we’ll let you know if and when you need a real attorney—and if you do we’ll teach you how to find a good one AND how to minimize your time with them.

How much does this stuff really matter?

We know you don’t have time or money to waste (and that this stuff isn’t anyone’s favorite to-do). But it really does matter. Like, a lot. To keep your business on solid ground you need to sort LEGAL, TAXES, FINANCES, INSURANCE. Each of these depends on the other, and together they keep your business safe and healthy. Getting this stuff right can save you a LOT of money even if nothing “bad” ever happens and even more if something “bad” does happen.

I’m not from the United States. Will this course still help me?

The contracts are definitely relevant for you! Our contract templates can be used in any country. The chapters covering contracts, insurance, copyright, trademark and licensing will also be relevant to most business owners. Topics such as business registration and taxes are super specific to each country, however. For this reason we’ve written specifically for US businesses when addressing these areas.

OK I’m in. What do I need to get started?

Nothing! It’s all here. We said you could legitimize your business in just 5 days with this course. And we meant it. We’ll hold your hand and take you step-by-step through the entire process.

How long will it take me to do this course?

Well, you could read through the material in a cursory manner in several hours. But to really work through the content and take action, you might want a couple of days. The beauty of it is you can work through at your own pace. The biggest pressure to make it to the end is just how long you want to wait to Get Your Sh*t Together!
