Protecting your ass(ets) without legal confusion

an intimate membership community for artists, makers, and creatives on all things legal

When looking at a legal document, do you…

  • read about a paragraph before your eyes glaze over
  • ask a question on social media only to end up even more confused by the conflicting information and opinions
  • feel worried that you don’t know what questions to ask in order to protect yourself and your work
  • have a sinking feeling that it’s not in your best interest to sign the document but can’t properly communicate why
  • feel frustrated when you’re handed a one-sided contract, but wonder if it’s the best deal you can get
  • all of the above, perhaps?

Confusing legal jargon has a tendency to scare even the best of us.

Rather watch? I get it press play!

What if you could…

  • Freely share your art and creative work with the world knowing it’s fully protected.
  • Confidently sign a contract knowing it’s in your best interest today and tomorrow.
  • Rest easy knowing you have access to an experienced legal expert who can guide you.
  • Seize dream opportunities, without scrambling to get your legal ducks in a row.

Real creatives, real action

Overwhelmed is an understatement about how I felt about the legal side of my business. But since joining the artist’s Courtyard, I’m feeling excited that it’s all manageable. The input of this friendly community and the guidance, confidence, and knowledge of Kiffanie keeps me coming back.

I was a little intimidated when I looked at the Register Your Copyright course in the artist’s Courtyard. But by the end, it was an awesome and empowering experience. Kiffanie’s lessons are really well-executed baby steps that made everything seem doable.  She even shares invaluable information like, “don’t fill in anything here or it will cost you.” I now have the knowledge and the confidence to complete this essential step to being a professional artist!

Having a clear, well-laid out contract has actually gained business for me. The first time I used my revised contract was for a basic social media marketing contract. My client was so impressed she added three additional services (including re-doing her website). Two thumbs up for the artist’s Courtyard course that helped me create it!

No hoops to jump through, no worksheets to submit, no screenshots of how you participated. You just need to let me know and I’ll refund you, without any fuss.
