Do you have your legal ducks in a row for your nomadic lifestyle? As an online entrepreneur, freelancer, or even an employee living a nomad life, you need to know about the legal concerns that come along with being a digital nomad.

In this episode, my guest is Layne Lyons JD, U.S. lawyer, business protector for women entrepreneurs, and creator of The Legal UMBRELLA Method™. Layne explains legal issues you need to know about including trademarking, domicile, tourist visas, and other laws you should be aware of when traveling in foreign countries.

She gives valuable insight into the best practices for establishing your domicile and how this correlates to your contracts with clients. You’ll also learn about how to protect your trademark and certain cases where you might need a trademark (even if you don’t think you do)!
