|Want True FREEDOM in Your Life and Business?
It All Begins with a Solid Foundation of Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax Systems… Yes, “That Stuff!”Can you relate to any of the following?
Growing rapidly and know you need to get the right systems in place to smooth out so very many things, but you are not sure exactly where to start, so you just keep figuring it out as you go and are realizing you’ve started to make expensive mistakes (or you will soon).
You know you need a proper business structure for tax and liability purposes, ironclad, yet totally heart-centered legal agreements for clients, partners and vendors, and a bookkeeping system to optimize taxes, but you don’t know what to look for, which parts you can do yourself, or who to hire.
Clients paying late… or not at all, or even arguing over your invoices.
Living payroll-to-payroll with your bills and expenses – where a month or two of slow revenue can have a serious impact on the well-being of your business (and your life) – even if you are bringing in good money!
Earning 6-7 figures or more, but still have this nagging sense that it’s not enough – plus, you worry you aren’t investing your money where you should be, or putting the right protections in place.
Feeling like you’re probably paying more in taxes than you should be (or want to be), but you don’t know what to do about it.
A vague sense of unease that there are things you should be doing to protect your business and relationships (i.e. contracts, insurance, legal structure, intellectual property protection) – but you aren’t sure what they are, or where to begin.
Frustrating conflict in the form of misunderstandings, customer complaints, boundary violations, or other similar disappointments.
You wish there were some way to put the right systems in place – without having to read dozens of books, or hire expensive “experts” to do it for you.I get it, because I’ve been there…
In my first several years as a business owner, if you looked at my life from the outside, it appeared that I was thriving and excelling, big time.
I was a serious player, having built my own law practice to over a million a year in revenue in just three years, and then entering the big leagues of the online business industry with millions more in sales, a bestselling book and the TV appearances to go along with it.
Behind the scenes though, I had my eyes squeezed shut to the things I didn’t want to see or deal with – the Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax (or LIFT) parts of my own life and business.
In some areas, I simply didn’t know what I didn’t know. In other ways, I was naive…
I thought I was “too small”
I trusted the wrong advisors
I didn’t want to spend the money
“It’s fine,” I thought. “Nothing bad will happen.”
What I didn’t want to admit (to myself or others) is that I was completely in the dark when it came to these parts of my business. I just felt really bad at all of it.
It was confusing. And hard. And NOT what I was good at.
So I just brushed it under the rug, and kept focusing on what I DID know – how to get seen, get clients and get paid.
Because it seemed like that’s what mattered.
And the lesser-seen parts – the financial meetings, categorizing expenses for tax purposes, record-keeping, and protecting and reviewing of my numbers – just seemed, frankly, boring and unnecessary.
I mean, none of that stuff applied to my lil’ ole business, right? At least that’s what one part of my mind certainly thought.
Maybe you can relate?
But, here’s the real truth…
No matter how much (or how little) money you make in your business, if you don’t have a solid Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax (LIFT) foundation, then all the work you are doing in the world is built on a house of cards – one issue away from disaster.
For me it took going all the way to bankruptcy to wake up and see what I had been missing.
(By the way, this would have been completely avoidable, IF I would have known what I had to learn the hard way – what I’m about to share with you here…)
Coming out the other side of that experience, I created an entirely new relationship with the Legal, Insurance, Financial and Tax areas of my businesses.
I restructured my life and businesses with my eyes wide open – and this time as my impact and income have grown, I have been able to sustain the growth.
Now, I not only have more FREEDOM than ever before… to travel, work from anywhere, and enjoy a lot of time with my family… I also have the peace of mind (the ultimate internal emotional freedom, which is far more valuable than any external freedom ever could be) of knowing that the work I am doing will continue to thrive for the long-term.
I’ve built businesses and income I can count on – and that (more than anything else) has moved me out of the scarcity thinking and fear that I had before – even when I was making great money!
Please don’t wait to learn these lessons the hard way, like I did!
I want to help you LIFT your business, with a solid foundation… so you too can enjoy the kind of clarity, freedom, lifestyle, income & impact you’ve always wanted.

“LIFT Your Life & Business”
The LIFT Foundation System & Toolkit will help you get educated about what you don’t know, what you can do yourself, and when to turn to a trusted advisor for help.

In the “LIFT Your Life & Business” Strategy Session, you’ll go beyond what you learn in the program, to take your life and business to the next level.
First you’ll complete a clarity questionnaire that will allow your Creative Business Lawyer® to get to know you – while supporting you to get to know yourself on a deeper level as well. Then, during the 1:1 Strategy Session, you’ll go through a thorough inquiry process to help you clarify where your business could be more efficient, effective, and ultimately enjoyable for you and your stakeholders (including team members, customers, clients and vendors).

BONUS GIFT #3
Walk-Through of My Personal Tax Returns
with Expert CPA Steve Spanola
Do you review your tax returns carefully before you sign them? Or do you feel overwhelmed just looking at them, so you just sign them quickly and hope that everything was done right? For years, I blindly trusted my CPA… that is, until I was audited by the IRS. If I had known what to look for sooner, I could easily have spotted the big red flags that were staring me in the face, and avoided a very drawn-out and difficult situation.
I want to help you avoid making the same mistakes, which is why I’m revealing my actual tax returns in this video presentation. I’ve enlisted the help of one of the top CPAs in the country, Steve Spanola, to walk you through exactly what you should be looking for to avoid overpaying on taxes (or worse, getting audited!) – whether you’re filling yourself, or working with a professional CPA.
