Hey hey! I’m Nicole.
I’m a wife, mama, attorney, and small business owner. I help online entrepreneurs like you protect their businesses with my easy to use attorney-drafted legal templates so that they can grow them confidently.
After 4 ½ years at a big law firm working 12-14 hour days, I became a mama. I knew that if I wanted to be present while my daughter grew up I needed to make some big changes. So, I took a leap of faith and started my own firm, Nicole Cheri Oden Law. I spent the next 2 years learning how to actively create a work-life balance and helping other women do the same while also running my law practice.
After receiving countless questions from other online entrepreneurs who were just so overwhelmed with legal, I pivoted in my coaching to offer legal templates to take the expense and overwhelm out of the process for them.
Most days you can find me chasing my sassy 5-year-old daughter around, living my best life in leggings, and blogging about all things legal and work-life balance. I’m a big time Disney fanatic and love our Jack Russell Terrier, Cooper, to pieces.
I truly believe that heart-centered female entrepreneurs are a force to be reckoned with. And I am so thankful that I am able to pursue my passion while helping other entrepreneurs do the same with the confidence of knowing how to protect their websites and businesses.
