WHAT WILL THE AUDIENCE LEARN?
- Our audience will learn to identify the necessary business law items they need as a solid foundation upon which to build their company.
Many business owners and entrepreneurs become so heavily focused on creating their products, goods, or services that they lose sight of the “business law basics”, such as having the necessary agreements, contracts, and business entity formation documents in place as a foundation upon which to build their company’s brand, customer base, and corporate culture.
While it may be tempting to skip these business law steps or to use knock-off online templates and cookie-cutter programs for legal documents, doing so can result in vague, incomplete documents, incorrectly filed entities, and a weak foundation which can potentially leave your business more susceptible to litigation and long-term legal woes.
On tonight’s episode of Employment Law Today, my guest, corporate attorney and business advisor Mitchell Beinhaker, Esq., and I will discuss some of the necessary business law items that you, the business owner/entrepreneur, and/or employer ought to complete as you start or grow your business.

Eric introduces his guest, corporate attorney and business advisor Mitchell Beinhaker. He runs a legal and consulting practice, Beinhaker Law LLC. Mitchell has a background experience with corporate governance, commercial transitions, real estate and estate planning. He also has a podcast called “The Accidental Entrepreneur.” Mitchell says that when he was in law school, he was very interested in estate and business planning. He was also fascinated by tax planning. Mitchell’s father was in the life insurance business and he grew up around his office. In his career, he has worked for different insurance companies like Nationwide. He used to travel around the country and speak to agents, brokers and clients about how to use financial products in the planning process like trust, charitable and business planning. Over the years his transactional business has grown in drafting agreements of different kinds. Eric and Micth talk about an issue where there may be a lack of formal documentation in situations like family owned businesses. It's important to have things documented no matter what. Mitch mentions important agreements depending on the kind of business as well as the method whether electronic, clicked licensing, physical signatures, etc.
Eric and Mitch share a thought that if you're a business and you are hiring employees, looking for vendors and doing a variety of things, it's possible to have some issues and litigation. Mitch makes a point that you can't run your business without proper documentation expecting to avoid certain problems. We are not always going to be neat and perfect. He mentions things you can prevent by having agreements that are drafted. Even if your proprietary information is safe, you can keep in mind about protecting your customers, employees, and records. Mitch discusses a second common mistake he sees business owners may be missing in “business law basics.” He mentions being a big fan of planning. A lot of business owners don't always put things in writing and plan ahead. He says that successful business owners are always reworking their business ideas and it doesn't have to be a ton of writing. It could be one page focusing on company, employees, marketing, and coverage (insurance, cybersecurity). Mitchell also answers a question from the Facebook livestream about whether there is a downside to setting up your business as a legal entity.
Mitch talks about co-authoring a book called Ten Ways to Get Sued by Anyone and Everyone. He goes into how our memory works like with traumatic events. He relates this to his advice on putting things into writing as we don't remember things the same ways as when they occurred and take things in differently. If two people disagree with something, they are both sure what the agreement was, but their memory of it can be different. It's important to put these habits into practice and it shouldn’t be uncomfortable because it's to make sure issues are resolved more smoothly compared to when there are no written agreements and records. Eric and Mitch point out that it’s standard business.
Coming back from the final break, Mitch talks about what makes his work different from other attorneys and advisors. He says that he wants to make sure he is accessible and easy to work with. For small business wonders and younger businesses, he says that there is a section on his website that allows them to purchase basic documents for half of what he normally charges. You fill out a google form and that information merges with the documents which he reviews and sends them back to you with more instructions. At least in this case, an attorney reviewed them compared to getting a document randomly online. Mitch allows himself to get to know a business or clients better. Because of these basics put into practice, it can make their relationship better and allows him to better help them. He also mentions other services he offers.

00:08:51.420 --> 00:08:59.280 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: yeah definitely is your business law, of course, as you mentioned, but an employment law for shorts yeah and i've seen a situation where I represent the employer.
00:08:59.700 --> 00:09:08.520 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: and looking to see where are the let's say the performance evaluations, where the progressive discipline morning, where are the witness statements about.
00:09:08.940 --> 00:09:17.130 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: insights that occurred that can be taken out of context and so it's also verbal and memory and discussions that were done over the phone or in person, so.
00:09:18.030 --> 00:09:24.810 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: I to kind of you know, I noticed that I think it said they think well you know we're like a family or a small business and they don't realize that.
00:09:25.050 --> 00:09:28.710 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Even if you are in business you're sitting down everything documented.
00:09:29.100 --> 00:09:30.720 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Of course, and people say things out of.
00:09:30.720 --> 00:09:41.640 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: context in the workplace, all the time, you know you there's probably probably more claims of harassment or that are not in even intended.
00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:43.500 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know the person who.
00:09:43.620 --> 00:09:51.510 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: was doing the harassing overstepped the line and didn't realize what they were doing or didn't mean it that way, whatever it's kind of irrelevant, but it becomes an issue.
00:09:52.020 --> 00:10:02.700 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know when there's no documentation, or they fire somebody and they said well this person wasn't doing their job they have no way to prove it so yeah I think that when it comes to putting things in writing in the employment situation and very important.
00:10:03.930 --> 00:10:08.040 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Absolutely, I think, in both of our definitely is very important do that.

00:10:43.680 --> 00:10:54.210 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: areas in terms of contracts and finance and transactions is the planning so it's kind of interesting I tend to I always thought thought employment low level overview fascinating field.

00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:32.310 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: dispute between two parties that tried to document it themselves that a very poor job of it and you're trying to make a case out of something that's a mess.
00:11:32.790 --> 00:11:38.970 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: yeah those are not you know those are ones that cost a lot of money and have a lot of fight involved with them and aren't.

00:11:44.340 --> 00:11:49.860 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Absolutely absolutely you know it's funny you bring me to a question if you're wondering my and they said, what is our next question and what should be.
00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:59.700 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: What are the most common mistakes, you lose one of them is now, but what are the most common mistakes that you see in business owners when it comes to protecting the business law basics of their company.
00:11:59.940 --> 00:12:02.340 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: and in what ways can these mistakes be problematic.
00:12:02.910 --> 00:12:19.290 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right right well, I mean when it comes to documenting so there's a couple of basic agreements that probably most business owners have should have Okay, if you are a solo printer you have an llc maybe you're the only Member you probably don't need an operating agreement.
00:12:19.650 --> 00:12:22.770 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Only you and I could probably make an argument why you do need an operating agreement, because there are.
00:12:23.520 --> 00:12:30.270 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Rules that right, but you probably could get away with it for a while, without spending 2500 or 30 $500 getting an operating agreement.
00:12:31.110 --> 00:12:40.560 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If you don't have partners if you have a partner, you have to have an agreement, because at the end of the day, it's that document that sets the rules up for how you run the business who's responsible for what, so.
00:12:41.220 --> 00:12:47.100 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Then you have to have agreements that you do business with right, so you have to have a customer agreements.
00:12:47.370 --> 00:12:55.500 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You have to have vendor agreements now, some of them are in certain businesses it's more difficult to use written signed contract, some people have.
00:12:55.860 --> 00:13:05.070 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: click licensing when they you know enroll on your website and some of them are more obviously you're not going to sign a contract every time you make a purchase in a grocery store right so so if i'm.
00:13:05.400 --> 00:13:14.880 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right so it's a little it's a little bit of a different scenario, but if you're in some sort of a business where you have a transaction that is more that needs to be more documented.
00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:24.210 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: or or is required by law and if you're in home improvement right has to be in writing there's certain statute of frauds that require writings so.
00:13:24.840 --> 00:13:33.630 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You have to kind of get your documents in order and and, very often, and I think you and I talked about this offline when we were planning to show.
00:13:34.770 --> 00:13:39.120 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: People either go to a do it yourself website like I mentioned them zoom rod.
00:13:39.630 --> 00:13:42.120 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Legal zoom rocket lawyer right where you.
00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:43.980 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: know I gotta deal with it, you do to.
00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:49.290 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: get these agreements and, ironically don't usually save that much money.
00:13:50.130 --> 00:14:00.480 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: No, I had something somebody recently get an llc set up and rot and I think was legals number one of the to charge them to get a tax ID number and I tried to explain to them that those are free.
00:14:00.870 --> 00:14:02.370 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: From the federal government couldn't.
00:14:02.370 --> 00:14:03.030 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: believe so.
00:14:03.480 --> 00:14:11.610 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: yeah so it's really not they're not saving a lot of money and they're potentially causing a lot of problems, so the biggest part of agreements it's pretty obvious if you're drafting your own agreement.
00:14:11.880 --> 00:14:13.830 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: What are your attention of the parties so.
00:14:13.830 --> 00:14:19.530 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You and I could go back and forth if we're late people and kind of write out what our agreements, going to be now.
00:14:19.710 --> 00:14:26.730 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: People don't always differentiate between the llc and themselves we don't define terms and they're just throwing words out there yeah.
00:14:26.970 --> 00:14:27.840 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Okay, so that's better.
00:14:28.980 --> 00:14:35.730 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: yeah and they say you're like well what's the venture what's the partnership, what does this mean what does that mean because that's what the litigation is made of right.
00:14:36.000 --> 00:14:36.210 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: That.
00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:48.090 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: When people are trying to understand terms there's ambiguities judges have to make decisions, the other side of it is very often left out, which is the What if we don't agree on something What if we dispute something.
00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:54.180 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: What if we're one person doesn't do their job follows part of the agreement, what what's the resolution.
00:14:54.630 --> 00:15:04.620 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: To those disputes and that's usually where these agreements fall apart, they don't have the other side of the agreement, because you and I both know that that's really another reason you need the agreement.
00:15:04.890 --> 00:15:08.040 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If everything works out and everybody's happy we don't need anything in writing.
00:15:09.480 --> 00:15:15.570 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Leave that out yeah exactly so you I get involved in a situation or you get involved in a situation and the first.
00:15:15.570 --> 00:15:21.540 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: thing to do as well, show me what the agreement says, does it call for arbitration or mediation, or what is it call for.
00:15:21.750 --> 00:15:24.090 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And they go well, we don't have we have some text.
00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:25.470 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: messages and an email.
00:15:25.800 --> 00:15:27.090 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Well that's going to help you.
00:15:27.360 --> 00:15:33.390 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: So that is a huge deficit when it comes to these agreements, how do you resolve disputes with your customers.
00:15:33.750 --> 00:15:38.580 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And ultimately, avoid litigation which you and I both know can be very costly and can break.
00:15:38.880 --> 00:15:40.860 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: and destroy some businesses right.
00:15:42.330 --> 00:15:48.810 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: To set it up almost like a prenuptial agreement for businesses where you're setting up the rules if we were to get divorced.
00:15:49.140 --> 00:15:50.400 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If we're going to break up.
00:15:50.790 --> 00:16:02.310 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I don't want to have to go to you Eric or another attorney to file a petition action in court right to get a judge to to basically dissolve the business they're not going to decide, you get half and the other they're going to dissolve the business.
00:16:02.310 --> 00:16:04.800 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Ultimately addition action and.
00:16:04.950 --> 00:16:16.320 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Just spend a lot of money right and it's just detrimental to the business that's not the point so if you're going in and you're starting a business you're excited about it put it in writing do it when you remember everything and you're all in agreement.
00:16:16.650 --> 00:16:18.630 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You both have counsel, of course.
00:16:18.900 --> 00:16:28.650 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Make your terms are defined it's clear to read it has certain kind of provisions that you and I both know general provisions that are left out, and it has a dispute mechanism, maybe you've.
00:16:28.830 --> 00:16:30.060 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: tried amicable be settled.
00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:44.520 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: amicably settlement, then you go to non binding mediation and then maybe you go to arbitration or maybe you don't or whatever, but that is the the biggest part that's missing when it comes to the mistakes that business owners make i'll get into some more than as we talk, but.
00:16:45.030 --> 00:16:52.530 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Absolutely, and including for choice TV, where do you live to get a dispute in court, you know we've got more to say on this we actually have to take our first commercial break.

00:19:58.380 --> 00:20:06.990 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Go back to this question, I think it's a great question are talking about a first off this again is music to my ears if I say to hear that people kind of echoing you're.
00:20:07.860 --> 00:20:21.570 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: sharing it from their respective maybe that's just the Attorney and me, for all these years that that see is because I see clients who make the mistakes that you're talking about like a see once they come to me, and they didn't have an alternative dispute resolution clause.
00:20:23.160 --> 00:20:32.430 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: In place so or they don't they say this certain state we're a dispute will be litigated if those before so So while we work in Florida i'm in Florida.
00:20:32.910 --> 00:20:41.850 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Florida here in New York, but you want to litigate in Florida, and the person you're saying I can't afford you know to write the Florida and stay there for two minutes.
00:20:42.900 --> 00:20:43.140 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: So.
00:20:45.510 --> 00:20:53.670 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: yeah so you know I think really good point there, of course, another point you mean that the overarching theme, about the need to have contracts in places like it's a good point that.
00:20:54.210 --> 00:21:01.710 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: When everything ready to go perfectly smooth and rights and fine, then the contract might not really be relevant if everyone always have meetings with.
00:21:04.740 --> 00:21:09.960 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: The way they see it's like it's kind of like analogy or metaphor for will have you know, having health insurance, if you have.
00:21:10.740 --> 00:21:17.010 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: anybody, but if you'd never get sick a day in the life and they get injured ever break go to the doctor.
00:21:17.700 --> 00:21:31.740 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Right exactly was just it was perfect, but the chances of That being the case, just living your day to day life is rare and something if you have insurance plan you know, most of our time, I think, getting surgery or a broken arm.
00:21:31.860 --> 00:21:42.660 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Correct you know cheaper than having to do it just on a particular, so I think that if somebody is I think that's an analogy, I would say that there's you don't make a mistake, you know you have a contract in place and now you're.
00:21:42.660 --> 00:21:44.670 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: litigating what could be resolved.
00:21:45.990 --> 00:21:53.550 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: yeah I think they were analogy is a very good one, there, there is no question that if you're a business owner and you're out there and you're active.
00:21:53.580 --> 00:21:59.280 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: you're looking for business and you're you're you're hiring employees and you're dealing with vendors and you got customers coming through the door.
00:21:59.610 --> 00:22:08.280 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: it's just a matter of time that you have a misunderstanding or dispute or a disgruntled employee or you know somebody files an email claim or whatever it happens to be.
00:22:08.970 --> 00:22:19.830 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: it's not a question of if it's just a question of when you know i've had clients get into the real estate business they're like I don't have any problems with my tenants, and we don't need to do evictions I go alright well just give it some time and sure enough.
00:22:19.860 --> 00:22:26.670 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: down the road six months, four months later, they call me I got a problem we got to evict a tenant, then you know it happens so you can't.
00:22:26.910 --> 00:22:38.430 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Just like health insurance right you can't run your business without proper documentation expecting to avoid the problems that every other business in America has it just the nature of doing business right it's the nature of.
00:22:38.430 --> 00:22:43.860 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: People it's the nature of the way your mind works our minds tend to favor each other but we're not.
00:22:44.160 --> 00:22:49.350 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Like perfect machines that file things very neatly in our heads and we just pull it out anytime.
00:22:49.590 --> 00:23:01.830 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Well, like a big box with sticky notes and everything stuck two different things you're sure that you were here on this day and you and I met and we talked about this, and maybe we were both wrong yeah you know there's been studies and all this stuff so and which is a.
00:23:01.890 --> 00:23:14.370 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: big problem in the employment law situation, because if you don't have things documented there misunderstood you have one person says this the other person said he said this, the other person's you know honestly they're like I don't remember saying that.
00:23:14.580 --> 00:23:17.400 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And this is why I heard them say that, but they didn't say it like this.
00:23:17.910 --> 00:23:25.800 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right well, he said she said and becomes a very big problem, so I tried to get business owners, even on the employment side as they start to hire people right.
00:23:26.310 --> 00:23:27.360 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right to.
00:23:27.630 --> 00:23:36.690 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know, to document things to you know, maybe you don't have to worry about an employee's stealing your proprietary information because maybe you don't really have proprietary information.
00:23:36.900 --> 00:23:41.430 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And they they really can't prevent them from ever having a job if they leave your company.
00:23:41.730 --> 00:23:44.670 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: So it can prevent them from stealing your customers.
00:23:44.910 --> 00:23:53.520 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: stealing your employees taking your books and records, so you got to have them, you know sign a basic agreement so at least when something like that happens, and they go to you.
00:23:53.760 --> 00:23:59.580 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: After I drafted that agreement, you have something to say hey you send them a cease and desist and you can go to court with it.
00:24:00.420 --> 00:24:10.290 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: yeah sometimes it's too, they do it after the fact, and it becomes a problem, I mean maybe not for the other employees, but for the one took all the customers, good luck, you know.
00:24:10.710 --> 00:24:17.880 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Right right a habit you that happened with two former client businesses, you know one I drafted a contract, for they have that, as your.
00:24:18.300 --> 00:24:32.580 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Non solicitation close right don't push my clients my customers employees and you know, with all the proper writing that I put in there for them so that, when they actually did have to sue somebody did quit and did take their clients and steal some intellectual property as well.
00:24:34.080 --> 00:24:41.040 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: we're able to you know, to really read and gets the question down, which is another client that came to their own documents and they did not want to.
00:24:42.030 --> 00:24:51.810 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: revise them, he said, well that's not a problem gets out later I heard you do xyz for me, so I took care of X, Y Z is Labor law department Labor issue right and then sure enough.
00:24:52.140 --> 00:24:59.910 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Employee left to their their clients with them, but they had only a very bare bones basic reference to they don't take my clients.
00:25:00.300 --> 00:25:09.270 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: From the template offline offline didn't have the right definition with clients on the scope The turnaround time, so it really wasn't a forcible and there's not much we can do that it so.
00:25:09.660 --> 00:25:17.100 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: And I if I really hear a lot about this, I can't i'm hearing you say, one of the most common mistakes, you see it's just the lack of failure documented formal contracts and.
00:25:17.640 --> 00:25:24.960 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Right and i'm wondering, maybe like a second most common mistake that you've seen, perhaps with business owners when it comes to the business basics missing.
00:25:25.350 --> 00:25:37.440 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Oh yeah there's no question about it and i'm a big fan of planning, so a lot of business owners, they don't plan things out they're not strategic about it and they don't put it in writing, obviously the seam is putting things in writing all over the place, with.
00:25:37.440 --> 00:25:39.390 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: This discussion, but yeah.
00:25:39.660 --> 00:25:49.530 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: But they so the successful business owners that i've that i've worked for that i've interviewed on my podcast that I know and follow online or whatever.
00:25:49.830 --> 00:25:55.920 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They are constantly reworking their business ideas and they don't do it, you know in their head.
00:25:56.340 --> 00:26:02.130 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And it doesn't have to be a 40 page document with charts and graphs and everything like that it could be a one page, you know.
00:26:02.790 --> 00:26:10.080 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If you have ever seen the lean canvas it's like a one page to page thing we're in boxes, where you just at least start out, you know, focusing on.
00:26:10.500 --> 00:26:17.790 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Your company and product, the employees the marketing and the financial side right, so you can start with those four things and.
00:26:18.450 --> 00:26:31.830 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I constantly find business owners that are in trouble financially the businesses in trouble, whatever it is, and the first thing you say to them well, what does your business plan, say, and they look at me like well what would it, what do I need that for i'm not raising money i'm.
00:26:32.010 --> 00:26:33.570 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Not a franchise I didn't have.
00:26:33.840 --> 00:26:45.390 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: A business plan and it's a very, very, very common mistake and and it it it sometimes very often the difference between success and failure because they don't even know what's wrong with the business.
00:26:45.720 --> 00:26:46.770 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Were struggling.
00:26:46.920 --> 00:26:56.010 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And and that's that's a very common mistake that can be fixed pretty easily you know we don't have to go and pull down some Harvard Business law Business School plan.
00:26:56.460 --> 00:27:04.500 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right, you can do some basics and it's a working document anyway, you got to change it, you got to use it go back to it, what works what doesn't work, just like any marketing thing you do just.
00:27:04.770 --> 00:27:07.920 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You tested, you know, maybe, and you know you and I both know the.

00:28:58.560 --> 00:29:05.640 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: taking time to be part of the process taking time to write a business plan you know it's like sort of is basically getting everything set up getting you know the.
00:29:05.910 --> 00:29:11.760 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: map out back in the old days are ways perhaps plugging in a destination and making sure you know your car is all set and.
00:29:12.120 --> 00:29:18.600 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Gas in the tank before you just jump in and drive say okay we're going to stay on track and just hit the gas and flooded, you know.
00:29:18.990 --> 00:29:32.220 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: So I think that's a really good point I think those are two and if you may be mentioned there's arguably three common mistakes that their business owners make, and the reason they're problematic because it leads possible misunderstandings litigation and so forth, so.
00:29:32.550 --> 00:29:32.820 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: You know.
00:29:32.910 --> 00:29:34.860 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: really good to have that part of our discussion.
00:29:35.700 --> 00:29:45.180 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: yeah absolutely you know it kind of like these between be a similar sort of flip side of the coin that question like we're talking about some of the business law.
00:29:45.600 --> 00:29:55.080 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Mistakes people are missing the basics are missing, and so I know you mentioned my contract, I agree with you are a key business or basic and haven't you know, had time in.
00:29:55.530 --> 00:30:04.620 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Your possession of the company, so what are some key what are some other key business basics that you believe a company needs to have in place in order to thrive and prosper.
00:30:05.910 --> 00:30:06.990 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: On the legal side, or just.
00:30:07.350 --> 00:30:15.180 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: In general, I would say, legal, but also business for respective business wise like maybe started with legal and say we talked about.
00:30:15.660 --> 00:30:16.650 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: So yeah.
00:30:17.460 --> 00:30:23.160 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They should be set up, and I see there was a question that came in from lance who is actually a friend of mine, it was all my.
00:30:23.670 --> 00:30:25.500 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Friends, yes, sir.
00:30:25.590 --> 00:30:26.010 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: and
00:30:26.100 --> 00:30:37.620 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know about setting up your businesses and entity it's really not a very good idea to operate as a sole proprietor especially nowadays with you know the litigious society and risks and things like that so.
00:30:38.430 --> 00:30:47.610 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know, even if you're a solo printer and you set up an llc online, and you can do it for you know 230 bucks to file it in the State of New Jersey and you don't need an operating room at least you have some protection.
00:30:47.850 --> 00:30:54.330 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: to know there's there's a there's a wall and a dichotomy between you as a person, and the business as a separate entity.
00:30:54.660 --> 00:31:00.510 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Also, probably a little bit better from a tax planning standpoint keep track of expenses lodges hard to deduct.
00:31:00.780 --> 00:31:07.200 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: As a sole proprietor so lance asked the question, is there a downside to sending me business legal entity know there's the opposite.
00:31:07.590 --> 00:31:16.560 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: there's a downside to not setting up your business, so I have met some people who kind of started out with a friend in business, and it was more of a hobby and they were I don't know baking something or making something or.
00:31:16.560 --> 00:31:21.600 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: crafts and you know they got to the point where it became a real business and they had to start operating so.
00:31:21.930 --> 00:31:31.650 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: At that point, you got to form an llc and you do have to have a separate tax ID number you gotta set up a new bank again new books and records and follow the formalities of actually having a business, if you.
00:31:31.830 --> 00:31:43.740 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right basically set up an llc and use it as your personal bank account pay all your expenses out of there you probably don't have a lot of legal protection, either so don't make sure you separate the two of those but a big part of that is, if you.
00:31:45.930 --> 00:31:49.440 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If you're setting up an entity and you're not following the rules.
00:31:50.010 --> 00:32:05.760 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: um you can what's the word, you can you can really put yourself in a vulnerable position from a liability standpoint, so one of the other things that I try and get business owners to do it's kind of legal and kind of risk and now you know, risk management.
00:32:06.120 --> 00:32:10.740 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: is to get insurance like people don't think about that unless.
00:32:10.740 --> 00:32:26.310 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: they buy a car or you know you need a basic business owners policy, and you know you and I are not insurance agents are up in the in the business and I had a lot of this stuff for clients, but i'm i'm not a licensed agent you're not licensed agent, so I preface with those comments, but.
00:32:26.370 --> 00:32:26.610 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: sure.
00:32:26.640 --> 00:32:37.140 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You get a basic business owners policy, you know if you own your building or whatever you make sure your contents are covered, you make sure you have proper riders in place you maybe you have employment practices liability.
00:32:37.170 --> 00:32:40.620 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If you have employees, you know, because it will be too late.
00:32:40.650 --> 00:32:53.520 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If something happens later on their cyber security coverage, because people can ask your computer things that you don't think about that happen and boom you don't have any coverage, so you can't and sometimes when you're just starting in your small they're not very expensive.
00:32:53.880 --> 00:32:59.160 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Some of these policies have cyber security riders and I don't know if they have a lie riders, but if you only have one or two.
00:32:59.160 --> 00:33:02.310 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Employees you probably can sneak your way by but you'll tell them no.
00:33:02.640 --> 00:33:03.120 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: and
00:33:04.050 --> 00:33:10.920 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You put that basic stuff in place for 1500 dollars a month, whatever to know just like you said, if something were to happen, it will wipe you out.
00:33:13.170 --> 00:33:20.370 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know so that's probably another thing and a piece of advice that I would give people when it comes to getting set up and started, you know don't overlook those things.
00:33:21.360 --> 00:33:26.550 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Absolutely 100% with you there I mentioned last, thank you for raising that question is really good one that.
00:33:27.180 --> 00:33:32.130 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: I must have missed that in the chat, but I see it now, you know, and of course to piggyback on what Mitch was saying.
00:33:32.370 --> 00:33:40.050 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: There are different types of entities that one can set up, based upon the businesses goals and, for example, if you're looking to raise seed money and maybe get investors.
00:33:40.410 --> 00:33:53.580 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: melon export becoming a C corp or maybe an llc with the Multi tiered membership units, there are llc or s corpse or C corpse and I find that attorneys and accountants also will weigh in on which might be most advantageous tax wise.
00:33:53.760 --> 00:33:54.780 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: But the initial point.
00:33:55.020 --> 00:34:07.770 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Right and to myrtle which is point the llc one thing we're an inker llc you are protecting yourself from our ability, of course, if you're a professional for your dentist or a doctor or a lawyer, have to be careful because you can stop us from my practice.
00:34:08.070 --> 00:34:09.600 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: But if you have a vendor dispute.
00:34:09.810 --> 00:34:15.810 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Right or espn or intellectual property at your llc owns you don't want to be independent individually liable so that's an.
00:34:16.710 --> 00:34:23.520 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Excellent point and, if I can add another point to this, which is like you know Mitch, and I were talking before for those tuning and now about.
00:34:23.880 --> 00:34:31.320 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: There are legal liability issues like you know minimizing risk, but also some from sort of enhancing our businesses value.
00:34:31.920 --> 00:34:38.010 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: I see a lot of minority owned businesses where they're looking for certain grants that women owned business minority owned businesses.
00:34:38.610 --> 00:34:45.600 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: And a lot of times they will look to see that you know if you're applying for that type of grant that you have all your ducks in a row in terms of a front.

00:38:37.680 --> 00:38:45.090 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I feel we're talking about risk and the basics and stuff and I mentioned to you during the break that i'm co authoring a book it's called.
00:38:46.170 --> 00:38:51.270 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: 10 ways to get sued by anyone and everyone and it's it's not ways to get sued it's obviously ways to avoid.
00:38:51.630 --> 00:38:53.790 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Getting sued, but we did it we did a sidebar.
00:38:54.450 --> 00:39:01.950 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: section of the book and I talked to a memory expert about you know how your mind works and why it is that we.
00:39:02.220 --> 00:39:12.060 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: That we don't you know remember things, and there are tricks to remembering you know certain things like people's names and places, and you know things like that, but it's very common they've done these.
00:39:12.420 --> 00:39:18.810 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: African what they call them these different kinds of brain studies in I think they're called flashbulb studies or something.
00:39:18.810 --> 00:39:19.230 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Where.
00:39:19.410 --> 00:39:29.550 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You experience these traumatic events you know 911 the challenger blew up and they and they question people about these traumatic events which you would think would.
00:39:29.820 --> 00:39:33.960 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: would be more memorable right because we remember all those events as opposed to other things.
00:39:34.350 --> 00:39:41.370 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: people's memories of where they were who they are, with what they were doing at the time, not even close to accurate their weeks off.
00:39:41.790 --> 00:39:49.200 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They they're sure that you know 911 I was with you at a coffee shop and up uptown and you tell me know, I was in Chicago on business and that.
00:39:49.560 --> 00:39:54.780 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And and there's a lot of discrepancies, so one of the problems with not putting things in writing it's not that like.
00:39:55.110 --> 00:40:05.970 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know, while someone's going to take advantage of you, if it's not writing that may be true, but the other person is assuming that everyone has good intentions, which I think that's a relatively good place to start.
00:40:06.240 --> 00:40:21.540 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Thinking our people are generally good it's just that we don't remember things the same we experience things differently, we take them in differently, we we file them in our brain differently, and when it comes out that we're disagreeing on something we're both sure.
00:40:22.110 --> 00:40:33.870 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right, the agreement was and it's always different and it's probably somewhere in between, but then you as the lawyer, as the litigator and maybe a judge ultimately has to sort these things out.
00:40:34.470 --> 00:40:41.490 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Based on all this testimony you know certifications that you're sure of this, and and you know that's what cases are made up, I mean you get.
00:40:41.940 --> 00:40:50.250 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know you take a deposition from somebody you don't get to court to eight nine months later they're definitely gonna say something that contradicts the deposition it's just human nature right.
00:40:50.310 --> 00:41:06.030 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: There so it's very easy to trip people up when it comes to that stuff so it's so important to have things to you know to to put things in place and operate your business in a certain way and and follow you know standard protocols that you do you onboard an employee.
00:41:06.300 --> 00:41:07.620 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: The same way, every time they.
00:41:07.620 --> 00:41:10.260 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: sign a nondisclosure they sign the non non.
00:41:10.290 --> 00:41:12.060 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: compete or not so so whenever it is.
00:41:12.360 --> 00:41:21.390 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They they signed the handbook and and they they learn what the rules are so they can't complain about it later on, you deal with a customer and i've had people say Oh, you know i'm so uncomfortable.
00:41:22.440 --> 00:41:28.560 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know I get to do with a customer what i'm going to without a contract in front of them I said, well, first of all, if you look at it that way, then you never going to do it right.
00:41:28.860 --> 00:41:29.520 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: right but.
00:41:29.580 --> 00:41:31.470 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You have to make it comfortable enough.
00:41:32.010 --> 00:41:38.100 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: for you to say okay now, this is the portion of our discussion where we get to the business specifics.
00:41:38.430 --> 00:41:45.690 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: This was my contract, you know take it you're an attorney to review it or you can sign it and take it back you have three days to look at it depends on the industry.
00:41:46.170 --> 00:41:53.850 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right, these are the provisions right, just like you and I do retainer agreements attorney it's not ethical for an attorney to do work and not have it in writing.
00:41:54.120 --> 00:41:58.230 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: i'm not saying that attorneys always sign retainers, but they should.
00:41:58.590 --> 00:41:58.890 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: yeah.
00:41:58.950 --> 00:42:02.640 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And now, with the sign, you can send them a retainer they can sign it on the computer whatever.
00:42:02.790 --> 00:42:03.090 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: So.
00:42:03.120 --> 00:42:10.500 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Sure it's very important to set those practices in place, so you are comfortable with doing it and becomes almost wrote it becomes standard.
00:42:10.770 --> 00:42:20.520 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You don't like it so steps i'm sure you come into situations where there's a problem with an employee stealing or whatever, and the first thing you say as well you know, can I take a look at their non solicit and they're like.
00:42:20.970 --> 00:42:22.590 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I know we signed one of those.
00:42:23.460 --> 00:42:28.680 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: are digging through their files looking well here, it is, and you go inside well but that's the one that we.

00:42:33.750 --> 00:42:43.350 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know if there's a lot of that there's a lot of that going on, and you know it just becomes very important for you to kind of put those practices let's call them habits in place.
00:42:43.890 --> 00:42:50.850 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: To do the things that make it easier to run your business, then you have to be all caught up with oh I gotta call Eric I gotta call Mitch I gotta do this and I got.

00:49:14.370 --> 00:49:27.570 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: strategies and unique approaches that that you take them find a lot of takes and providing business or services for your client business owners like i'm always you know do differentiate itself from other business law attorneys and advisors out there.
00:49:27.840 --> 00:49:28.470 sure.
00:49:30.330 --> 00:49:38.250 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I mean beyond like experience right because i've crafted thousands of contracts, so when i'm looking at an agreement, I obviously have a different eye to it.
00:49:38.550 --> 00:49:48.090 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And someone either has three to five years experience or just a lay person trying to do it on their own so there's things that i'm looking for and agreements that make you as a litigator your life easier.
00:49:48.510 --> 00:49:52.890 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: If something were to happen, right so that's important but, more importantly, when I when I when I.
00:49:53.130 --> 00:50:05.910 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: When I got on my own I started the firm, I wanted to make sure, and I think it's very important for attorneys to be accessible to their to their clients and easy to work with in today's digital age, if you will, right.
00:50:06.030 --> 00:50:07.470 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: So I am so so.
00:50:07.560 --> 00:50:11.640 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: sure I do you know custom work I do very complex work for people.
00:50:12.210 --> 00:50:27.480 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Sometimes it's flat fee sometimes it's hourly a try to manage it as best I can for people, but for the small business owner and for the the younger bid the newer business i've done a couple things one is we built out a section of our website that allows business owners.
00:50:27.540 --> 00:50:27.990 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: or.
00:50:28.230 --> 00:50:34.890 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You know even young couples that need like a basic will to go in and to purchase basic documents as opposed to.
00:50:35.490 --> 00:50:47.370 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And you know even cost you more but it costs you less than having me do custom work for you, you don't want to go to legal zoom you want a lawyer, to give you advice you go to the website you order a basic operating agreement you order basic least whatever it is.
00:50:47.670 --> 00:50:59.730 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: You will you'll purchase it for maybe half of what I normally charge you fill out a Google form, I think it's Google we use you fill out a form online the information merges with my documents I review them.
00:50:59.850 --> 00:51:00.810 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: I send them to you.
00:51:01.140 --> 00:51:06.960 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Within a few days with signing instructions there's additional charge, if you want me to execute documents notarized and whatever but.
00:51:06.990 --> 00:51:07.170 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: You.
00:51:07.350 --> 00:51:20.640 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: know when you can do that yourself, but at least you know you had an attorney review them put them together we've automated the process significantly we keep adding pieces to it, so this is an estate planning section there's a business business law sections and there's a.
00:51:21.870 --> 00:51:26.550 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Growing commercial real estate section I think right now the only there's only one or two documents on there, but.
00:51:27.600 --> 00:51:40.320 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: That was the first part of it, the other part of it is, I have a program where I put small business owners on retainer where they get you know, for the most part, unlimited emails.
00:51:40.560 --> 00:51:41.400 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: A certain amount.
00:51:41.490 --> 00:51:47.940 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: of phone call time or meeting time each month and then discounts for business work and estate planning.
00:51:48.150 --> 00:51:49.860 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Where they also get an online vault.
00:51:50.130 --> 00:51:58.950 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Secure available to them and packages start as low as 699 a month ago, up to, I think, just about 4000 a month and for.
00:51:58.980 --> 00:52:10.590 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: new businesses, I started meant for six months at $99 a month, so it allows me to do is to really know their business, the biggest problem with working with lawyers, as you know as well, is that.
00:52:10.830 --> 00:52:19.590 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They come to us on an ad hoc basis we don't really do a good job, because we have four they spend a lot of money, while you're trying to figure out everything they've done in the past, and all the.
00:52:19.590 --> 00:52:23.370 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: properties, they have and what their handbook says and is this the current handbook.
00:52:23.520 --> 00:52:26.160 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: And do they have the did the person sign off on the handbook or where's.
00:52:26.490 --> 00:52:30.450 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: The Non solicit agreement that sign and you're running around their office spending hours and hours and hours.
00:52:30.720 --> 00:52:31.740 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: getting into.
00:52:31.860 --> 00:52:34.260 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: The classical client if you're their regular.
00:52:35.340 --> 00:52:36.000 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: attorney.
00:52:36.240 --> 00:52:39.570 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: you're going to have a copies of those documents in the cloud available to you.
00:52:39.810 --> 00:52:43.170 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: to know what to do as soon as there's something in the business owners that are on that.
00:52:43.170 --> 00:52:50.040 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: program with me and I send their more commonly 1499 a month to 2499 a month that's probably the sweet spot for.
00:52:50.070 --> 00:52:51.000 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Most of the customers.
00:52:51.450 --> 00:52:59.640 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: When they send me an email and say I have this problem, because you know my landlord is moving somebody in the strip mall that competes with me and it says in my lease.
00:52:59.880 --> 00:53:04.080 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: That they couldn't do that I don't have to then sit down with them and figure all this out.
00:53:04.140 --> 00:53:05.280 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: I already have this stuff.
00:53:05.670 --> 00:53:08.280 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And i'm not in immediately and they get a lot for their money.
00:53:08.460 --> 00:53:10.260 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: And it's a much better relationship.
00:53:11.490 --> 00:53:17.190 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: For the for me to service them so that's another way that I I don't see a lot of attorneys doing that and I think.
00:53:17.250 --> 00:53:18.180 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: At least on the.
00:53:18.480 --> 00:53:22.710 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: My side of the world where you're you're almost like a fractional general counsel.
00:53:23.310 --> 00:53:25.650 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: which I think is the word we use on the website.
00:53:25.950 --> 00:53:31.410 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: For the business owner they can't afford to go out and hire a full time general counsel to be on their staff.
00:53:31.830 --> 00:53:34.470 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Right benefits and things like that you know.
00:53:34.500 --> 00:53:46.470 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: They can buy some of my time on a regular basis, and let me learn their business and know the business, then I look through their business and and say you don't have an employee handbook well you, and then I referred to Eric Eric puts the handbook.
00:53:46.470 --> 00:53:46.950 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: together.
00:53:47.070 --> 00:53:48.000 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: And we know it's done.

00:53:51.900 --> 00:53:52.620 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: That they don't even.
00:53:52.650 --> 00:53:59.160 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Think about the you know, protecting their intellectual property, maybe they're you know in some sort of a creative business and they don't.
00:53:59.250 --> 00:54:01.950 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: know so it's too late, that they find somebody posted.
00:54:02.220 --> 00:54:13.380 Mitch - Beinhaker Law, LLC: Their stuff online to do something with it, I don't have any agreement that protects the work that they did so that's a big way that I like to work with business owners on those types of programs, I really don't like to just do an ad hoc.
00:54:15.090 --> 00:54:26.400 Eric Sarver, Esq - Employment Law Today: Absolutely, but I know that what you're saying there you know it's interesting because i'm just pulling up your your slide with your logo, so I can get ready for when the show ends later bear with me one second.
