In this episode, I’m talking to Shahrina Ankhi-Krol, an attorney specializing in the pet industry. She talks about common issues that she sees pet businesses make and why it’s so important to legally protect you and your business. Having the correct business entity and insurance set up really tells the world that you care about what you’re doing and the customers that you’re serving.

After attending hundreds of networking events including pet expos, Shahrina had a business lunch gone-wrong that inspired her to create a location-based networking app. She told me all about how the app works and we both share some in-person networking advice.

Please note that the conversation shared in this episode is intended to convey general information only is not considered legal advice.
