Are you an online business owner completely overwhelmed by trying to figure out:

What contracts do I need? How do I get them?

Do I need an LLC? How do I form one?

How do I make sure clients pay-and pay on time?

How do I protect my content?

Am I missing something? Is my business compliant with all laws?

And…how much is this going to cost me?

I get it!

Legal can seem intimidating and overwhelming. For some, it’s also up there on the excitement chart with a trip to the dentist.

Getting a business logo or a sleek new website? Much more of a fun spend than contracts for your business.

However, without the right legal foundation, everything else is just window dressing, and you’re setting yourself up to fail.

Think of it like building a house. You pour the concrete before you choose your paint colors, right?

Same goes for legal and your business. You need a solid foundation, which is the right corporate structure (e.g. LLC). You need contracts, which guide the entire relationship with your client, dictating everything from what you're doing, to how, what and when you'll get paid. Think of contracts like the roof and the studs.

But that’s not all. You need to protect everything in your house, right? You don’t want someone coming along and stealing your stuff.

Same goes for your business. Contracts and copyright protect your intellectual property, whether you have a group program, online services, a course, or are just sharing great (info-packed) freebies.

And don’t forget insurance in the event of a disaster. Just like you'd protect your home with homeowner's insurance, you need to insure your business, too.

In other words, legal affects literally every facet of your business. You can’t succeed without it. And trying to do it yourself is about as effective as trying to build a house yourself. You don't have the right tools, knowledge or experience. And it's going to cost you big time:

  • Forced refunds because you used a free contract that didn't have a refund policy
  • Clients ghosting on payments because the contract from your coach wasn't drafted specifically for online business
  • Total rebrand because you chose the wrong name

...and so much more.
And not to scare you, but small business cases can cost $50k+ just to litigate. Trust me, you don't want to get sued.

🏠 Let's build the right business foundation now. 🏠

Back Pocket Legal™ is your all-in-one legal solution.

Everything you need to start, run, and scale a legally protected business.

You’ll get the contracts you need now—plus the contracts you’ll need as you scale your business — and the video tutorials that come with each contract, so you can knock each out in less than 30 minutes.

As quickly as possible (we’re all about getting you what you need efficiently, without fluff), I’ll teach you the basics of incorporating your business, business insurance, trademarks, copyright, and what to do when things go wrong.

You’ll finish BPL confident you’ve not only protected your business and your content via killer contracts, but you know what you need to do if things go south with your clients and you know how to stay compliant with all laws.

Plus, you’ll have ongoing support from me in the form of biweekly live sessions. You’ll get all of your questions answered, I’ll walk through legal issues I’ve seen over the past 2 weeks so you can learn what kind of issues your peers are encountering and how to handle them, and so much more.

Meet Mairin

Hi! I’m Mairin Van Shura, a virtual lawyer and entrepreneur. If you’re like me, you’re a little obsessed with your business and would do anything to protect it.

Unfortunately, I’ve seen so many well-intentioned business owners suffer from not having the right contracts or legal know-how:
  • Clients ghosting on installment payments
  • Clients requesting refunds on non-refundable services, programs, and online courses
  • Clients demanding 24/7 access to coaches and OSPs
  • Repeated requests for postponements or cancellations of meetings from flaky clients
  • Clients cancelling services early with no notice
  • Clients taking forever to approve revisions, causing major delays, or wanting revision after revision they haven’t paid for

Let’s protect your business

I'm In!

Mairin Van Shura

We'll help you build a better business.

Did you know that getting legal can help you build better relationships with your clients, make more money, and improve work/life balance?

Legal isn't just doom and gloom and worst case scenario protection.

The right contracts, which you'll get in BPL:

  • Eliminate scope creep
  • Protect against early cancellations
  • Enforce your boundaries=protect your time and energy
  • Free up time so you can take on more clients
  • Protect your payments so you're not wasting time chasing money owed
  • Allow you to offer new and different services and products
  • Give you confidence and credibility to charge more and take on higher ticket clients
  • Help you fight Imposter Syndrome because you're treating your business just like you know the 6/7/8 figure business owner you're aspiring to be would.

Bottom line:
Getting legal gives you peace of mind and confidence knowing you've build the right business foundation and have the tools and knowledge to protect it.

BPL pays for itself very quickly.

🔥 5 bite-sized legal modules

Contracts are the most important documents in your business, hands down. But there's so much more to running a sound business than just contracts. BPL will teach you everything else you need to know in easily digestible modules covering:

  • Pros and cons of each business structure and how to set yours up
  • What you need to know about business insurance
  • Trademark and copyright basics, and how to protect your brand and your content
  • How to launch a new program or service legally
  • How to run giveaways and challenges
  • Social media best practices
  • What to do when things go wrong

💥 Biweekly live Q&A

Regular access to a lawyer not billing you by the hour! You’ll get answers to your legal questions, as well as answers to the questions I’m asked most frequently, and short trainings on relevant topics as they come up.

Bonus? Watch on-the-go from our BPL app! You’ll be able to access all live trainings on the BPL app, plus get legal and business tips, tricks, and hacks on your phone.

If you’re like me, you have at least a handful of courses you’ve bought with the best intentions and never finished. Maybe there are a few you didn’t even start 😬🙈 They’re just sitting on your electronic shelf, silently judging you for wasting money.

BPL is different. Even if you decide to skim the modules, you’ll still get a ton of value from the program. You’ll not only get all the contracts you need, you’ll get regular support from me. And you’ll also get the priceless peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve finally crossed legal off your to-do list, and you’re ready to level up and take the next step in your business.

Still on the fence? Back Pocket Legal™ is for you if…

– You’re brand new to online business and don’t have a clue where to start.

You have no idea who drafted your current client contracts and whether they actually say what you think they say.

– You: “What’s a Privacy Policy? I need legal stuff for my website or I could be fined?!”

You’re ready to launch a course, mastermind, VIP Day, workshop or paid intensive, and had no idea you needed a contract for each until you saw this page.

– You scaled rapidly and didn’t have time to build the right foundation. You know your free contracts aren’t protecting you, and you’re ready to hire a contractor.

You’re ready to charge high ticket. You know your prospective clients expect everything, including the contract you’ll have them sign, to be professional and high quality. You know your cobbled together via Google contracts won’t cut it.

– Legal gives you nightmares. You worry you’re doing something wrong and are going to get in trouble. You want to feel confident that you’ve protected your business as much as possible, and understand what you need to do if things go wrong.

Yes, this is for me!

Still have questions? Check out these FAQs:

Great question. Once you purchase, you’ll be emailed your Kajabi login information. This will give you access for an entire year to all of the contracts in Kajabi!

In Module 1, you’ll have an intro video which will walk you through the program and what contracts you need by business type. It will also answer our most frequently asked questions about the contracts. You’ll also have a PDF checklist, which will tell you exactly what documents you need for your business and why, so don’t worry about taking notes during the video! Also, all modules are clearly laid out by business type so you’ll know exactly where to go and what to download.

We want to give you time to customize your contracts so that any questions that may come up (which you can post right into Kajabi so we’ll see them) can be tackled on Day 1 of the Live Zoom sessions!

If you can’t complete your contracts in the week between the time the cart closes and the Zoom classes start, that’s okay! You’ll have access for an entire year to download the contracts, which is also a great thing because then you’ll have access to contracts you don’t need now (like an Independent Contractor agreement, for example), but might need down the road.

Yep! Mairin and all of our masterclass experts are all based in different countries. This is truly a global program! All of our legal contracts are globally applicable. Our webpage policies are compliant with US data privacy laws, the GDPR, Canadian data privacy laws, Australian data privacy laws, etc. Corporate structures will vary from country to country so some of the information introduced in the Zoom classes may not be directly applicable if you’re not in the United States, but the concepts as far as limited liability and choosing corporate structures to protect your personal assets will be. Our tax masterclass will be geared more towards the US tax system, but will present knowledge useful for any business owner. Tech/systems, online courses, and mindset are of course also globally applicable. 😉

Yes. Your contracts will be in Word format. You’ll be able to download them directly from your Kajabi account. Every section you need to customize will be highlighted, and you’ll be provided with instructions in the templates themselves, and via video tutorial for each contract. Once the contracts are completed, they can be uploaded into your electronic system.

Absolutely. Just because you don’t work with clients one-on-one doesn’t mean you don’t need to protect your business legally. In fact, the nature of your type of business actually introduces unique legal nuances (like intellectual property). You still need contracts, just a different type than if you were working with clients directly. With this program, you’ll learn exactly what contracts you need and why, and can download and customize them and have them ready for your website by the end of the program.

Every fortnight, Mairin will go live on Zoom. You can ask questions during the sessions, and you’ll also have the opportunity to send us questions in advance. You’ll get email reminders and reminders on the app ahead of live sessions. All sessions will be recorded and available to you in your membership site.

Material to be covered in live sessions varies, but in addition to answering your questions, Mairin will offer training in such things as launching best practices (e.g. for example, making sure your IG giveaway is compliant with all IG regs, etc.), answering FAQ, and discussing legal mistakes Mairin has seen that week. When it comes to legal, you often don’ know what you don’t know, so reviewing where other business owners are going wrong can be hugely helpful.

We wanted to give business owners who already have contracts, or business owners who can’t yet make the full investment in BPL, access to our BPL modules and biweekly lives. Through the BPL modules, you’ll learn everything you need to know to start, run, and grow a legal business. Our biweekly lives provide ongoing support and additional training.

Back Pocket Legal Lite is essentially Back Pocket Legal, without access to our contracts. If you decide to invest in BPL down the road, as a member of Back Pocket Legal Lite, you’ll get a discount on your enrollment.

We enroll members in Back Pocket Legal Lite on a 3 month, rolling admission basis. Once you sign up, you’ll be emailed your log-in information which will give you access to our BPL modules. You’ll also get information about our lives, and access to our archives of past lives.

After 3 months, you’ll have the option to renew for another 3 months.

No. Mairin is an attorney, but taking this program does not in any way create an attorney-client relationship between you and her or you and Solivagant Legal and we can’t offer personalized legal advice. This program will give you the tools and knowledge you need to customize your contracts yourself (and that’s why we are able to offer this program at this cost versus something easily 5 times as expensive), but Mairin cannot customize them for you.

The best time to get your contracts in place? Before you get your first client. You don’t need to be making a certain amount of money before it’s appropriate to protect yourself, your business, and ensure you get paid! In fact, new business owners often get taken advantage of (ahem, scope creep) because they don’t have a contract clearly outlining the services they’re providing, their boundaries as to when and how they’re available to clients, and payment terms (especially in the event of late or default payments) when they get their first client.

You-and your prospective clients-will start taking you and your business more seriously once you’ve created that solid business foundation and started showing up as the business owner you aspire to be.

If you’re worried about the financial investment, we don’t want anyone to not protect their business because of finances. We have payment plans that give you the flexibility of multiple payments versus lump sum, so check them out!
