You'll hear what’s working well right now and also find out what he’s working to improve.

Behind the Scenes with Rachel Rodgers

Rachel Rodgers with Pamela Wilson

Obtaining a law degree used to mean earning the ability to write your own ticket to a high-paying, long-lasting career.

Things are different now. Many simple legal needs can be taken care of inexpensively online. Some of the reliable income streams lawyers counted on for years have dried up completely.

Rachel Rodgers has resolved this issue in her own career by devoting herself to teaching online business owners best practices for managing their intellectual property, smart product creation techniques, how to set up a business to be successful from Day 1, and more.

In this Authority Behind the Scenes session, we learn how she does it.
