High Touch Service in No-Touch Times with Elaine Lou Cartas

I’m so excited for you to hear this episode with Andrea Sager. Andrea has a small law firm and helps small online business owners legally protect their businesses.

Andrea and I have been friends for a long time. I’m an affiliate partner for her program, The Contract Vault, because having the right legal protection in your business is so important and so often overlooked.  

I can’t wait for you to dig into this episode where we talked about how you can legally protect your business as well as your affiliate programs.


If you have any fear or nervousness around the legal aspects of your business, or aren’t sure what you need to protect your business, dive in to listen to us talk about:
