Immediate assurance: At the end of the program you will have a contract that you can use and you will know what each of the clauses do for you and what they mean.
Peace of mind and Protection: Your contract will be tailored to you and your business and will address your particular needs. (Most general business lawyers charge between $250-$500 per hour! And, that is without giving you any contract; it is just to talk to you!)
"Using contracts in my business was the last thing I wanted to do. I dreaded it and was dragging my feet, thinking it would be a difficult, long drawn out process. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that it was quick, easy and much simpler than ever I imagined. Gene's expertise and clear understanding of my needs as a business coach and marketer made the process a breeze."
After this webinar you now know that you can't I just download it off the web. And you know that a misplaced comma is all it takes to have a judge not enforce your agreement.
I have seen this happen – clients usually come to me when it is too late; when a client is trying to back out of an agreement and the court would not enforce it, or worse, their agreement had them traveling across country at their expense to vindicate their claims. In some instances, they got sued or their clients walked away after receiving thousands of dollars’ worth of coaching without paying for it!
"When I began using Gene as my lawyer, he showed me places in my contracts where I was leaving myself open to huge risk - ouch! I quickly realized how valuable it is to any business to have contracts in place that are tailored to my business needs. Gene is a great resource to have draft my contracts and to review those presented to me to sign. The value of his legal services far outweighs the cost and he is easy and fun to deal with."
Don’t let this happen to you. I have a solution that is exactly what you need to protect yourself and your family (that’s right – they may pay the price if you don’t get paid).
I have studied the businesses of coaches and I know what needs to go in that contract of yours because I am familiar with the problems that arise during the coaching process. I know what the clients will say in an effort to avoid paying you and even what they might try to say to put you at an unfair advantage or bully you into letting them off the hook.
This offering is an inside look into exactly what the language in your contracts means – not to you or to a client – but to a Judge or an Arbitrator. And I will show you how to create obligations you might not have thought of that will help you in dealing with your clients should they decide your time and services (which they have already taken) is not worth it to them to pay you for.
"If you're a coach or consultant you need a legal contract between you and your clients and really should hire an attorney to help you. If you have already have a contract that you THINK is good enough you STILL need an attorney to make sure you're protected. Gene is the attorney you need. I did not have Gene look at my original contracts for an upcoming program. A problem arose with a client that could have cost me a lot of time, money and aggravation because my contracts did not fully protect me. Gene was able to resolve my problem beyond my expectations and was an amazing resource to educating me. Along the way he showed me where my contracts could be tightened and I plan to have him as my lawyer in the future!"

Here is how it will work. Once you have signed up, I will email you an outline of a coaching client services agreement that we will go over each week in the online class and you will see how it should be modified or adjusted.
The calls will be recorded and sent out after each session so if you missed it, you can go back and review it, or you can go over it again and again. It is yours.
After the three week sessions, you will have one week to email me your proposed contract for review and I will send you back my comments on it.
"I am just starting my business as a relationship coach. I saw Gene present at a Barb Wade event in Denver in October and I bought "The Four Basic Legal Agreements" and I have to say the coaching services agreement really saved me when it was time to line up my first client. What really was key was the fact that it was not just a template, rather I got a whole hour with Gene to make the coaching services agreement fit within the program that I am offering. I love working with Gene as my lawyer; and you will too."

"As they say, CYOA, cover your own assets! I thought I was all set with an agreement that was a collection of all the agreements I signed in the past. I felt secure and comfortable with my contracts. I had over 13 years as a Broker and had the basic knowledge of "playing Attorney" in that industry. I could not have been more wrong. I connected with Gene at an event. I decided to have him review and revise my contract. WOW!!! The added legal jargon has taken my sense of security through the roof. The added protection of my business and other crazy legal ease in the document are beyond what I imagined. Needless to say Gene is my Legal Guru and my attorney on call for ALL my legal needs. Gene provides personalized service and truly cares about what I do and how I do it. He is brilliant and a MUST HAVE on your team. Don't be fooled by thinking you are too new or have a if then attitude. Gene is the best piece of "insurance" you can buy."
