  • “You need to have a lawyer who understands you and understands what your risk tolerance is so then they can help interpret the laws in a way that you can understand how much risk you're taking. So for me, that's like the most important part and why, DIYing it or using templates that you get from other people doesn't work because every person does their business differently.” 3:19
