1) Business Formation: this will cover how to set up a legally compliant business and what factors to consider when deciding which entity type is best for them -- sole proprietorship, LLC or corporation?
2) Business Contracts: this will cover why contracts are important and the essential business contracts every small business owner, especially those in the online space, need such as Privacy Policies, Terms and Conditions etc.
3) Intellectual Property: how to protect and scale your brand and content through Trademarks and Copyrights.
