I am so excited to welcome to the podcast, my friend and personal business lawyer, Nina Marinaro. She is a New York private lawyer and former lobbyist who left her high-power political career to pursue a path more aligned with her soul. She quit her job in 2018 to travel the world and met so many struggling entrepreneurs along the way. She realized there was a big gap between traditional business owners, her business colleagues, and the online business space. That led her to found the Contract Guru in 2019, which is a digital contract template shop and educational resource to help online business owners gracefully step into the shoes of CEO. Her contracts are what we recommend to all of our Boss Mastermind students, and you guys are getting a super cool sneak peek of what they learn!

Growing up, Nina felt like she was the exception to every rule. She felt like those rules were meant to be bent or circumvented. She has lived her life that way. She thought she would go the traditional way to become a lawyer, but she also wanted to collaborate and network with other people. She became a lobbyist and ended up working with her best friend. She kept feeling like there had to be more to it than that. Instagram was starting to take off and others were building their businesses on there. That’s when she quit her job to travel and clear her head. She feels like it was the best thing she did! She met a lot of online entrepreneurs on her travels, which gave her the courage to start her business. Seeing their struggles, she decided to be a lawyer for those types of people.

  • What the importance of having a contract is (5:35)
  • The #1 most important thing Nina recommends to do if you’re just starting out (7:00)

  • Why you need to make sure your contract is clear, has what you need, and that you understand what is on it (24:20)
  • The differences between LLC and Sole Proprietor, and how you need to at least purchase a contract template to protect yourself (28:45)
