Do you interview guests on live video or podcasts? Are you using a pre-interview Agreement?

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 😉

Your Social Media Platforms and Piercing The Corporate Veil

Are your social media and other digital platforms part of your business? If so, are they in your name or in the name of your business?

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.
