Every field has particulars to understand.
In photography it is lenses, in art brushes, in fashion fabrics and the list goes on. Once you understand it, things flow, but without an understanding it can feel overwhelming and difficult.
As a creative building a business from your passion, you need a breadth of understanding of a lot of different fields. The law can feel like the most important and yet most difficult thing to wrap your head around. Let's face it, most of us do not understand most terms in a legal contract, but as business owners we now need to.

In this masterclass Jo will share:
- Key essential terms to include in your Terms & Conditions
- The meaning of the most common legal terms

- Common legal pitfalls to avoid
- Trademarks and Copyrights
