But It Wasn't Easy!

Despite being a trained lawyer and CPA, and despite all these outward signs of success, I struggled to get my business up and running. Just like you, I had to learn what business entity to set up, what contracts to have in place, how to market my business, and how to scale it to the next level (shocker: they don’t teach you this stuff in law school!) And I had to figure all of this out on a shoestring budget without a financial safety net. Sound familiar?! It was stressful, and I made a lot of expensive mistakes along the way. The good news is, I am going to teach you everything I know so you can avoid making the same mistakes I did and fast track your own success.

That's Why I Developed FLAME

FLAME is a business methodology I developed that stands for the 5 Pillars of Business Success: Finance, Legal, Accounting, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship. I developed FLAME because, as a business attorney, I was used to entrepreneurs asking me for help with their Legal Pillar. And what I soon discovered was that you can’t really help with the Legal Pillar without addressing the other Pillars – the Financial, Accounting, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship Pillars. For example, how is your business being funded? What is your marketing plan? Are you running ads on Instagram and Facebook? Do you have insurance? Do you have a succession or estate plan? Have you set up a legal entity, and how is it being taxed? To really help business owners, I needed to help with all 5 Pillars – not just Legal! And the FLAME methodology was born, and I am so excited to share it with you!
The FLAME Membership was designed to solve a problem millions of business owners face: How do I get my legal questions answered without spending a fortune on attorneys? I get it, folks…this stuff is confusing, and the rabbit hole that is Google doesn’t help much either. That’s why direct access to me is part of your FLAME Membership. I will personally answer your questions in our Private Facebook Group, to the extent I can, and point you in the direction of a lawyer when appropriate. Believe me, folks – this perk of membership alone could save you thousands of dollars in legal fees!

You'll also get immediate access to legal and business templates for your business and tutorials on how to use them. You'll get bi-weekly live training with me. And you'll be part of a positive, inclusive community of like-minded entrepreneurs cheering you on every step of the way!
