Use Written Assignments To Protect Your Personal Assets From Your Online and Social Media Business Liabilities!

 

On Monday I discussed the importance of including your social media accounts in your estate and business succession plans (watch here).

On Tuesday I shared a concept called the “corporate veil” and why you never want to commingle your personal and business assets and liabilities (watch here).

On Wednesday, attorney Joey Vitale and I answered your questions about the above on our weekly live video show (watch here).

Today I share a device called a written assignment of rights that may allow you to easily transfer your individual ownership interests into the name of your business.

As always, check with a qualified lawyer in your state should you have any questions. Also feel free to stay connected with me right here at the Streaming.Lawyer blog and also on Twitter @MitchJackson 😉

Who Holds Title to Your Social Media and Digital Accounts?

If you’re doing business online, then I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you’re making this BIG mistake…

Hopefully, you’re doing business online as a corporation or LLC. That’s a good thing.

But let me ask you this question: Are 100% of your business assets in the name of your corporation or LLC?

Is the title to each of your SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS and DIGITAL PLATFORMS in the name of your company or, in your individual name?

Because you NEVER want to commingle personal assets with your business, this can be a HUGE problem. In less than three minutes I show you exactly what you need to do.

For a good article about piercing the corporate veil, read, “Piercing the Corporate Veil: When LLCs and Corporations May be at Risk”

“The Secrets To Marketing and Automating Your Law Practice: A Lawyers Guide To Creating Systems, Getting Clients, and Becoming A Legal Rainmaker.”

I’m honored to have written Chapter 12, “13 Ways Lawyers Can Repurpose Content on Social Media” in this new book by David M. Britton, CEO of PracticePanther. It’s titled, “The Secrets To Marketing & Automating Your Law Practice: A Lawyers Guide To Creating Systems, Getting Clients, & Becoming A Legal Rainmaker.”

While every chapter provides massive real-world value, my two favorites are by contributing friends and experts, Nicole Abboud of AbboudMedia (“Branding Bootcamp 101”) and Nick Rishwain of Experts.com (“Multi-Platform Publishing & Scheduling”).

Real Online Business Stories: Jennifer Quinn and Mitch Jackson


In The Beginning

Lisa and I first met live video professional, Jennifer Quinn aka JennyQ, in New York at Periscope Summit 2015. I was in the Big Apple to speak on a panel and to share legal tips with online business owners trying to figure out what this new livestreaming animal called Periscope was all about. JennyQ was there to network and build her business.

After the event, JennyQ and I continued to stay connected. We commented on each other’s blog posts, supported each other’s Periscopes by sharing and hearting them up, and retweeted each other’s tweets.
