Legal-EASE for Entrepreneurs: Empowering Creatives About the Legal Aspects of Running a Business
About This Show
Legal-EASE for Entrepreneurs is the only podcast dedicated to educating and empowering creatives and small business owners to tackle the legal aspects of their business. Starting a new business can be a daunting task. The last thing most entrepreneurs want to worry about is the legal aspects of their business. And that's why I'm here - to ease the legal struggles you face in your business.
I spent 6 years in BigLaw and working for a Fortune 500 company, learning the ins and outs of drafting contracts, tax planning and intellectual property law.
My goal is to share my knowledge with everyday entrepreneurs, because I know what it's like to build a business from the ground up.
We'll cover all legal aspects of running your business, from legalizing your website, what entity to choose, which contracts you need for your business, how to protect your intellectual property, how to protect yourself from lawsuits and common legal mishaps!

Ep. 21 - Ruby Melton of Black Girl With A Camara and Mint Conference
This week's episode is VERY special. Today's guest is Ruby Melton, founder of Ruby Ella Photography, Brown Girl With A Camera, Brown Guys With A Camera and the creator of the Mint Conference. I also have some very exciting news - I booked my first gig as a speaker! Two months ago, someone tagged on one of my posts the Instagram page of Ruby Ella Photo. I looked her up and her she is a photographer who has gorgeous photos. So of course, I started following her. One day she posted about the Mint Conference coming up in D.C. so I checked it out and saw that the conference was still in its planning stages and accepting speaker applications. Even though legal wasn’t mentioned as one of the categories they were seeking, I figured, if it's a conference about how to start a photography business, then I'm sure they would like to know about the legal aspects of starting a business. I submitted my application and last week I received an invitation! The conference is in Washington, D.C. and will be held on September 15-16, 2017. Ruby and I discuss how she built Brown Girl and Brown Guys with A Camera from meet-ups around the country to now hosting portfolio building experiences around the world, managing three business AND working a full-time job (which she only recently quit three weeks ago). And finally, we talk about the upcoming Mint Conference which includes amazing speakers, 12 different portfolio building experiences and a panel that will be discussing the important of diversity in the media. If you’re either just starting out or have been in business for a while – this conference if for you. Check out artsteele.co/podcast for more details and links. Enjoy!
