Does any of this sound familiar?...
Spinning your wheels trying to figure out all the moving parts to building your own business. You've tried looking up all the steps to running your own business, and you still don't know if you did it right. You get so overwhelmed + confused that you stay put.
Frustrated by the lack of info on online business. You tried talking to an attorney, expert, or accountant about your online business, but they didn't really understand what you do or how you do it.
Intimidated by legal. You tried to chat with a lawyer, but not only do they not get what you do (and cost $$$$$), but they're scary and don't take you seriously. Besides, is legal language even English?
You don't know what you don't know. You worry you don't have the right 'legal pieces' in place, but you don't even know what pieces you're supposed to have. You don't really have time to spin your wheels searching online for answers that don't apply to you.
You're afraid to put out the stuff you really want to, because you're afraid it might get you in trouble. You water down your business because you're playing it safe and small.
You don't know how to protect yourself or your business online. You're afraid someone might steal your work, not pay you, or push your business's boundaries. You're worried that if + when it happens, you won't know what to do about it or be able to protect yourself.
Did you nod your head at any of those?! Perfect. You're in the right place.

Hi! I'm Sam, an attorney-turned-entrepreneur who empowers women with DIY legal templates and information so they can confidently grow online empires.
I was a corporate attorney for nearly 5 years before I left the law in 2016 to start my own online health coaching business and dove into entrepreneurship head first.
I fell in love with online business: marketing, content creation, social media, design, coaching, and so much more.
And I met amazing women entrepreneurs who really needed some relevant + clear legal info to run their own online businesses. What I at first thought was just a side project grew into my full-blown passion.
So in 2017, I launched Sam Vander Wielen LLC and offered coaches and service-based entrepreneurs DIY legal templates, like contracts and website policies, to run their biz.
I've empowered 100s and 100s of women with my DIY legal templates. But my clients want more than just a done-for-you product. They want to know this stuff + want to boldly step into the CEO role in their business.
And CEOs know a thing or two about legal. They don't just pass it off on someone else.
So Fearlessly Legal™ was born to empower you with the legal info + education you need to run your own online business.
But in true Sam-style, I don't just stop there. I loaded Fearlessly Legal™ with email marketing, affiliate, branding and messaging tips, too.
Here are a few reasons why I created Fearlessly Legal™ for you:
Fearlessly Legal™ is such a valuable resource for your business that it's helped dozens of women like you already. I'm confident you'll LOVE Fearlessly Legal™. But if for some reason you don't, I'll happily provide you a refund if requested within 30 days of your purchase + you provide feedback about what didn't work for you and what we could do improve the course for future students.
Even as someone who's done the "basics" in my business, there is so much valuable information I can use today and as my business grows. I'm so glad I have this resource to keep coming back to.

Before taking Fearlessly Legal, I had no idea what I was doing. I was intimidated of the idea of creating a business for myself, didn't even know what a business entity was, and felt overwhelmed and discouraged about the whole legality of creating a business that felt like my own...Sam's video modules are easy to understand and she provides a video of herself talking through them, so you really feel like you're getting a "top notch" online learning experience! Any time I have a question, Sam always answered so quickly; I never understood how she was always able to do that! Fearlessly Legal is so extensive and covered numerous topics that I wasn't even aware of. I love that I have access to this program for life and I foresee myself using this for a very long time!
I no longer feel overwhelmed after Fearlessly Legal and I finally believe in myself and my ability to do this. I couldn't have done it without Sam!

If you're an entrepreneur that's feeling overwhelmed by your legal to-do list and you need some legal clarity, this program is a must. Sam is so knowledgeable and makes the information digestible and accessible, you'll feel less stressed and have much more clarity when you're done. You should definitely snag this program!

My worries were eased after taking Fearlessly Legal and diving into the Picking a Business Entity Type, Trademark 101, and Copyright 101 modules. These lessons helped to inform my next steps to ensure my business and content are protected in the legal sense or as Sam would say, to get "legally legit!"
Sam's meticulous breakdown of each legal term, process, and explanation of how each applies to the act of running a business was extremely helpful! Her candor and humor made the content easy to understand, which I very much appreciated as legal jargon is not something I am well versed in. I would tell any of my friends with a business to sign up for Fearlessly Legal because it will not only save them time by providing a wealth of clear and concise knowledge...but it will also save them tons of money in the process.

I met Sam through Instagram, and ever since she has always posted the best tips and info! Fearlessly Legal is amazing... not only for business owners, and coaches, but it's truly helpful for a blogger who's trying to monetize her blog.
What I really loved about this course is that not only did Sam have a slide show for every topic but she also had video of her explaining each topic and each module. I also loved the set up of the course! It was easy to navigate and work through, and...she has a list of worksheets so we're able to truly start applying what we learned into our blog, business, or coaching programs.
I highly recommend this for anyone who is as lost as I was when I wanted to figure out how to protect myself. I have learned so much from Sam and this course.

Who is Fearlessly Legal™ for?
Beginners AND seasoned businesses. If you're starting your own business, or have been up and running for a while, then this course has valuable legal info you need, no matter where you are now.

Conscientious entrepreneurs. You want to know how businesses are run, and you know legal is a huge part of that.
CEO-ready women. You don't want to just pass it off to someone else to know how to protect your business. You run your empire day-to-day, and you're ready to step into the CEO role with some legal info in hand.
Who is Fearlessly Legal™ NOT for?
Entrepreneurs looking for personalized legal advice. This course isn't for people looking for legal advice or who need to hire an attorney. Sam isn't your attorney and won't be able to provide you with personal or business legal advice if you join the course.
People who aren't interested in learning legal info and implementing some steps themselves. If you're looking for someone to handle all the legal steps and backend stuff without you being involved, you're looking for your own attorney, not this course.
I thank my lucky stars each day that I'm here, serving you, and doing this work.
I can't even put into words how different I am as a human being because of how fulfilled I feel in the work I do each day.
I'm no longer living a life I want to run away from.
I invite you to join my community and fearlessly build a business that lights your soul on fire, too.
I can't wait to help you get fearlessly legal <3
