“Brilliant, and long overdue!
As a small business owner, it has taken me decades of hands-on experience of legal disasters to learn a few basic first aid skills.
Fortunately, Georgia Thomas has written The Small Business Legal Toolkit, which will eliminate a lot of stress, prevent a lot of heartache, and help you to exhale. (We generally hold our breath when we face a bump.)
The point is to have enough of a buffer and some basic information to have good foundations from the beginning. So many newbies don’t know what to get their heads around first.
And that’s where Georgia and her life saving book come in. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I wish I had this Toolkit then.
Georgia covers Business Names, Business Structures, Product Liability, Intellectual Property and Contracts, and of course so much more.
Seriously, it’s exactly what every new and established business owner needs on their journey – a guide to the best tips and informational heads-ups that could save you pain, time and money.”
Angela Vithoulkas – Independent Councillor, City of Sydney – Multi Award Winning Business Owner – Founder Small Business Matters Party
“With this handy book, Georgia Thomas neatly and succinctly sets out key strategies to get your business on track – and to know what questions to ask and when to ask them.
Her style is conversational and informative, and the content ranges from what business structures might suit you to hints on marketing, protecting your intellectual property and avoiding common pitfalls, as well as ensuring you look after your primary asset – yourself.
The ideas Thomas outlines, and options she suggests, will set you on the right path to finding out what you need to know for your specific circumstances. She helps you examine your business with a strategic eye to create a successful future.”
Pauline Wright – President of the NSW Law Society, 2017
“As if getting customers isn’t hard enough, we now have all kinds of legalities to consider as small business owners. It’s so complicated and confusing, and sometimes a little scary.
When someone as smart and passionate as Georgia Thomas decides it’s time to write a book to help small business owners with their legal issues, I sit up and take notice.
This is the book I wish I had many years ago, it would have saved me so much money, so much time and so much angst. Buy it, read it from cover to cover and be proactive in protecting yourself, and you’ll avoid making many of the mistakes I’ve made over the past 30 years.
The Small Business Legal Toolkit is a real credit to you, Georgia Thomas.”
Andrew Griffiths, International Bestselling Author, Entrepreneurial Futurist and Global Speaker.
“Finally! A small business book that demystifies the legalities of running a business in plain English.
This is the book I wish someone had given me years ago. Easy to read. No preaching, just chock full of good advice, solid information and most of all – useful!
Presented in short, sharply observed, bite-sized pieces, The Small Business Legal Toolkit is the perfect reference book to dip into as required. Or you can sit down with it to ensure your business is as protected as you want it to be.
To put it simply, if you run a small business you can’t afford not to get a copy of this book and put its suggestions into practise.”

“Starting a new business is one of the most exciting things you can do. It’s such a rush running around getting everything ready for the big day.
However in all the excitement it‘s very easy to miss the basic foundations and important elements in a business.
In her latest small business book, The Small Business Legal Toolkit, Georgia spells out the legal issues you will face setting up and running a business for the first four years. She expertly unpacks each area of a small business in a way us non-legal eagles can understand.
It will save you thousands of dollars and many sleepless nights as you learn about your legal obligations and important issues to look out for.
My only complaint is she waited so long to write this for the business community. I sure could have done with this book 30 years ago!
I’ll be making this available to all our members at the Chambers Of Commerce in Tasmania and through the Tasmanian Enterprise Centers.
It’s a great investment in the success of your small business.”
Nathan Kelly – President, Central Coast Chamber of Commerce & Industry
