You’ve been working so hard, moving through life one day at a time, building a brand that you’re really proud of for your business, and yourself. You’ve put in a lot of work, and money, and you’re seeing it pay off. And then… you meet someone and you think it’s time to get married. Do you ask for a prenup, or are you prepared to pay out a portion of your hard earned money if by some chance, things just don’t work out? Is it negative to think of protecting yourself from future harm if you’re with the love of your life? Most people avoid this conversation at all costs because the outcome typically is an argument and hurt feelings.

Malik’s practice is in Alexandria, Virginia, and he’ll share ways that you can work around this complicated, but critical topic.
