How to finally feel the confidence & peace of mind you dream about in your businessGet Legally Lit
To all the entrepreneurs who have straight up avoided, Googled, or tried to cut & paste/ DIY the legal side of your business and still don't understand if you're actually legally secure or not...
How much longer will you be able to stay lost and confused about the legal before it comes back to bite you?
Imagine you've been working on that big project in your business, and you've invested your blood, sweat, tears and a significant chunk of your company revenue into this expansion that will elevate your company to the next level.
You took care of everything: the marketing deck, sales pitch, market projections, customer service and your team.
The only problem: You skipped the legal stuff because you didn't know what exactly it is you should be doing to make sure you're doing things "legally".
Well, the big day arrives and your launch goes off without a hitch.
You're so confident in your business model and you're starting to make a huge difference in your industry! Congrats!
But a little while down the line, a letter arrives in the mail that tells you to cease and desist operations because your operation is infringing on the rights of a pre-existing venture.
After the first feelings of shock and disbelief, the painful reality sets in.
You now have to pay a lawyer's office to explain to you that you're now legally obligated to make a huge pivot in your business to account for this legal mishap.
The lawyer tells you that if you had taken a few key steps before you got started, there would have been no problem.
Not only does that mistake cost you lawyers fees and the stress of dealing with a legal "issue", but it also leaves you right back where you started: feeling victimized and overwhelmed with all of the legal things you "should" be doing to protect your business.
IT'S TIME TO FEEL EMPOWERED ABOUT YOUR LEGAL
without all the overwhelm, confusion, wasted time, money and stress.
The good news is that you're closer than ever to finally being able to navigate all of the legal steps and strategies that are an integral part of running a business.
A LEGAL EDUCATION & EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM FOR ENTREPRENEURS
who are messy action takers, masters of their industry, and are ready to understand and empower their business with the legal strategies and skills of successful businesses so they can create legacy companies that are legally structured for value maximization, liability protection, and legal compliance.
Hardworking entrepreneurs like you have gained incredible confidence in navigating the legal landscape of business to the point that they are now negotiating for what they want and making deals, standing firm in their legal boundaries when challenged, and starting businesses grounded in a solid legal structure so they can live out their soul's purpose.
This helped to empower me with understanding the law as it relates to my business so that I can ensure my legal foundations are solid which keeps me focused on doing what I do best.
I learned how to negotiate contracts and how to bring my own contracts and requests to the table to do business with others.
Enhancing my legal and business knowledge helped me to step up my game and be a major player and have conversations that not only did I follow along with but could initiate as well.
Halfway through I was asking deeper questions, applying shifts to my practice, and by the end I not only could say it, but I totally experienced being legally lit!
I can speak with legal ease, took a seat at the legal table, and am excited to do even more.

HI! I'M VANESSA.
I'm your Soul Attorney and legal mentor, Vanessa Locicero.
When I started my entrepreneurial journey back when I was a chef who wanted to open my own restaurant, it took me years to get started (and in a different profession no less) because I let the fear and overwhelm surrounding the legal stuff involved in running a business hold me back.
No matter how many hours I spent on Google, talking to coaches, or courses I took, I still didn't have the 30,000 foot view about all of these important and scary legal things that I knew I needed to know about in order to feel safe and secure in my business.
So, I decided to go to law school and learn it all myself. I felt like I was getting a present from Santa with every new legal strategy I learned about.
Once I gained all that knowledge about the legal landscape of doing business and became a full time practicing lawyer running my own law firm, I could see that there was no one out there breaking down the barriers so that every day people starting and running their own businesses could understand this stuff too.
I've invested in coaches and mentors to help me understand all of the other sides of building a business, and implemented all of the strategies I learned to build a solid legal foundation for my empire to grow on. I saw no one was teaching the legal stuff, so I created Legally Lit.
So often we're taught to just wait to deal with legal until a problem arises, when we should actually be focussing more on what you can to to protect yourself from the legal problems in the first place.
Now, I help entrepreneurs feel empowered and confident navigating the legal stuff by showing them that they don't need to wait to get sued to take care of their legal.
With a little bit of education, empowerment and mentorship, we can all get Legally Lit.
