Is your business protected against a potential legal onslaught?

When I asked Eliot to come on the show, I was half expecting to hear a bunch of boring stuff about what to do when you find yourself in a ‘legal pickle’.

It was a pleasant surprise to hear the tone of the conversation that formed the fundamental basis of the entire episode was more or less, Eliot telling us how we can inevitably avoid ending up talking to him.

As Eliot jokes a number of times throughout the episode, “Do this, so you don’t have to pay some lawyer loads of money they don’t need”.

The conversation

I approached this conversation with the angle of really trying to figure out what we, as business owners need to have in place from a legal perspective in our business.

I left with a strategy on how to be a better, smarter, more organised and less exposed business owner.

We covered things that I certainly didn’t expect to discuss.

Things like:

  • how to employ staff correctly,
  • how to let staff go correctly,
  • how to establish contracts,
  • how to remunerate staff correctly, etc.

Are you a business owner?

If you’re in business, you must listen to this podcast. It’s amazing on every level.

In my eyes, Eliot certainly doesn’t fit the stereotype of a lawyer. He’s a great communicator and a funny story teller, who’ll keep you smiling the whole way through.

I hope you enjoy this episode and once again, PLEASE leave us a review at iTunes | Stitcher | Soundcloud, or YouTube.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
