Episode 16: Protecting Yourself AND Your Business With Layne Lyons

Contracts! Trademarks! Intellectual property, oh my! Nicholle talks with trademark and business lawyer Layne Lyons on this week’s episode of Becoming PowHERhouse. They dive into what these terms mean, in an easy-to-understand way, and why you need them to protect your business. Layne herself created an online business with a partner, without a written agreement, and ended up getting burned, losing out on the content she helped create AND potential income. From this experience she jumped into how she can better protect herself and her biz, which turned into helping other women business owners do the same!

In this conversation, Nicholle & Layne discuss:

  • What you need to protect your business
  • The risk of losing your hard-earned following and brand recognition
  • Being proactive and setting yourself up for success
  • Learning how you you can confidently create and protect your brand
