MUST Know Legal Tips for Online Entrepreneurs w/ Jim Hart

Do you have your legal systems in order? Is it the part of your business that you put off? I totally get it. 

Today we’re diving into the legal side of running an online business, with lawyer and Accelerator member Jim Hart. 

I asked him to join me because it’s been a while since we talked about anything legal here on the podcast. I know it can be boring, but it is SO important, and if there’s anyone who can teach us about the law without making it boring, it’s Jim. 

Jim is the founder of Hawthorn Law. He is an Online Business Lawyer, Entrepreneur, YouTuber, and diehard Cleveland sports fan who has escaped the cold of Ohio to live under the Blue Skies of North Carolina.  Jim is a devoted husband and father of three young kids who loves to camp, hike, run, and make YouTube videos that help online entrepreneurs get their legal house in order so that they can focus on building amazing businesses.

Jim is super approachable, super smart, and I’m so excited to sit down with him for this episode.
