Course Description


Now more than ever people are flocking to the internet via social media or online review sites to voice their concerns or opinions about situations that displease them.  Indeed this can be a good thing, especially when shady businesses or unscrupulous business people are legitimately being called out. However, what happens when the consumer advocates who are trying to warn others go too far by employing a poor choice of words or allowing their emotions to get the best of them? Let's just say that the repercussions can include unnecessary frustration, heartache, and astronomical legal bills.


This short course discusses a real life situation where a couple bashed their wedding photographer online and elsewhere over a $125 fee and ended up with a $1 Million jury award against them. 

In addition to providing you with a real life example of a not so pleasant situation that could happen to anyone, you will ALSO RECEIVE four (4) TIPS to help prevent the same thing from happening to you.


Anyone using the internet! If you are on the internet and are inclined to voice your opinion or otherwise might rant or write a review about a situation that you feel is unjust, you can't afford to miss this! 

Course Completion Certificates Available Upon Request.

AS FEATURED IN:I left the fourth grade all those years ago believing that when I grew up I wanted to be an educator. When I first started college I still wanted to be a educator. I love to teach! However, by chance, my career path changed over time and my career path turned towards the legal field. My formal education is coupled with many years of experience in the private practice legal field working on matters ranging from criminal law to tort litigation and business litigation to the broad spectrum of duties that is associated with being an Executive Director and In-House Counsel for a long standing popular, yet controversial, interactive online forum - hence the media attention.Based upon my 18+ years of experience in the business and internet law world, and seeing a real need for education regarding internet use and repercussions from the same, I am motivated to turn my attention back towards teaching by sharing my knowledge with others via formal speaking engagements and online courses for teens and adults/businesses alike.  A little proactive education could go a long way towards saving frustration and heartache in the future.Remember, "Fighting Fair on the Internet" is a real talent.Follow me on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
