How to Legally Start Your Business with Antonio Glenn
"Getting sued isn't great pillow talk" — words from our guest today. I don't know about you but I'd have to agree, lol. Imagine your business is going well and all of a sudden there's an issue that causes you to be sued. You're still operating as a sole proprietor so you have zero liability protection. How do you think that conversation will go with your spouse when you realize all of your personal assets are now at risk? No bueno!  One thing I'd hate to see is a person's whole livelihood crumble because of a legality in the structure of their business. So in this episode, I dive into the nitty gritty of starting a business and being legally setup for success with my good friend Antonio Glenn. He's an attorney with a heart for entrepreneurs and is dropping gems left and right that will help answer many questions you may have to get legally setup. Things like: what business entity should you have what tax classification you may be able to file under step by step process of legally establishing your business when you should consider switching the type of entity your business is and more... If you've been wondering about this and you're ready to make the move from hobby to pro on the legal side of things, click play to listen and make sure you have a notepad and pen handy to jot some notes. Seriously, Antonio generously shared so much! If you loved this episode, I’d love to connect with you on Instagram!

Should You Start a Business Right Now in the Midst of COVID-19?
Did you have your hopes set on starting your business in 2020 but plans were put on hold due to a global-pandemic-apocalypse-world-ending disease? Yeah, honey, you're probably not the only one. Here's the thing, entrepreneurship is kinda one of those things where you just dive in. Some people jump with no backup plan, others have a year's worth of savings, and then there are those who continue to work their job while building their dream business. No matter where you fit on the scale, you're doing just fine. But perhaps you aren't even on that scale. You're sitting on the sidelines unconsciously psyching yourself out wondering if you should even start. In this episode, I share 4 tips that I believe will help you gain clarity of whether you should take the leap and start your business... and yes, in the middle of a global pandemic.

From 9:5 School Teacher to Full Time Entrepreneur with Stephanie Powell
Do you work a full time job and maybe realized that you aren't truly satisfied? Aren't walking in your purpose? Maybe not living into your fullest potential? You are not alone. In this episode, I chat with Stephanie Powell, a fellow brand strategist about her journey to entrepreneurship from a pension secured 13 year career that she had already built. She shares the internal battle she had to take the leap, one key thing that she would implement sooner if she had to do it over again and how huge her support system was in the process. Entrepreneurship is not always glitz and glam but if you prepare yourself for the ebb and flow, you'll have so much more fun along the way.

How to Get the Support Your Heart Craves as an Entrepreneur
When jumping into something new, it's easy to think those around us are going to be all in too until you realize maybe they're not. A part of becoming an adult means acknowledging not everyone in your life is meant to travel every single path you journey... with you. The hardest part about that realization is when it pertains to those you call your 'ride or die' friends and family members. Truth is, when we encounter these forks in the road, it's an opportunity to broaden our circle and allow people who will take us to that next level to come in and support as they are equipped to. You don't always have to let people go (although sometimes that's completely necessary) but when you realize that what got you here won't take you there, as a purpose driven person you start to open up and make the changes necessary for your next level.

Struggling to Find Your Brand Words? 3 Tips to Nail It
Voice is the impression or tone your readers get when they take in your captions, blogs, and content. There’s nothing worse than showing up on social media, in your newsletters, and even on your website sounding just as granola as everyone else who does what you do. Finding your brand voice means having an opinion, and that’s okay! So how do you stand out?? Truth? BE YOURSELF. That’s it. It’s easier said than done, but in this episode you will learn the exact process I use to create a foundation of HOW I want to communicate with my ideal audience. If you complete this exercise, you’ll have a better idea of how your business stands out among the sea of sameness, too. Best part is, when you grow your team, you’ll have a ready-to-go sound bite listing for them to reference as they help communicate your brand, even as you begin to choose visual elements that represent your brand style — such as your logos, fonts, colors, photography, and more.

Success Leaves Clues: Model Success with Evan Carmichael
Entrepreneurship doesn’t have to be so hard. Sure, there will be things that arise that you’ve likely never encountered before and you’ll have to figure out how to get through it. That’s about as normal as it gets– in life and business. The way you make it through and get to the other side and alleviate some of that overwhelm or anxiety is to look at those who have gone before you and paved the way. Success leaves clues. You just need to look up from your hustle every now and then to see what’s going on. In this episode, you will be listening to a conversation originally published in The Rewrite Summit, an online series of interviews I hosted where I asked entrepreneurs from all backgrounds and levels of success what their journeys to success had been like. Check out my chat with Evan Carmichael, an entrepreneur that truly believes in entrepreneurs as he shares what helped him build and then sell his very first biotech software company at the age of 19! Whatever you want to do is possible, friend. You just need to look up and see how you can make it more efficient and reach your goals faster.
