As design professionals, we have a high earning potential, but it’s impossible to realize that level of profitability without taking some risks. To protect your business and your mental health, a layered approach to legal protection keeps you safe and able to do your best work. Braden talks attorney with us in a non-attorney way.

In this episode we learn:

  • for maximum legal protection, it’s best to seek a layered solution
  • initial layers of protection include insurance and contracts
  • after the initial layers of protection are in place, assess your personal risk aversion to decide if you need further protection
  • to indemnify another party is to compensate that party for losses that that party has incurred or will incur as related to a specified incident
  • alternative dispute resolution is a means to solving a dispute outside of court



Charge More.

That was a big one. I way undercharged for my first two years. I doubled pretty much all my prices one week. My client load, and workload, decreased by about 25%, but my revenue increased by about 50%. This gave me more money to hire some help and more time to market my business.
