Can’t make it live? Replays provided to those who register.


Have you ever thought…?

  • What type of entity is best to create and meet my long term goals?
  • What’s better – a social enterprise, BCorp or profit-for purpose company?
  • What legal documents do I need to protect my business and where do I get them? (can I just copy and paste from someone else?)
  • How do I know if my online presence is protected?
  • I have no idea where to find the key legislation to make my business ethical and impactful?

Then this Live Sessions with Master Mentors is for you!


We’ve made it easy for you to start building your impact business.

Have you ever been able to get a lawyer and an impact-driven business coach in the same room AND ask them everything you need to think about from a legal perspective when scaling your business?

Probably not.

And that is why we are putting on this Live Sessions with Master Mentors Phil and Patricia to fast-track your business success.

In this training, you will:
