The legal side of business

The legal side of business

Welcome to a special episode in celebration of International Women’s Day. This episode is proudly sponsored by Sarah Henney from HenneyCFO.

Transitioning back to work after parental leave is hard.  

As Sarah Gee watched her return to work date creep closer, she began to feel an internal struggle between wanting to spend precious time with her son and needing to maintain her standing in the workplace. 

Sarah was on the verge of throwing away 15 years of training and hard work as a business and commercial lawyer before deciding to forge a career on her own terms. She launched her business Curium Legal in 2020.

In just four months of trading, Sarah replaced and exceeded her full time wage. Being able to set her own fees combined with the lower overheads of working from home, has meant that more local business owners can afford to engage Sarah for their legal services.

Sarah shares with us her business journey and talks about some common legal blunders business owners face when dealing with trademark, ecommerce policies, partnerships and collaborations. She also explains why so many senior women are leaving the industry and why it's important we fix this.

Meet my friend Sarah from Curium Legal.
