Establish an LLC (limited liability company) or a Corporation

Establish an LLC (limited liability company) or a Corporation

If you start a sole proprietorship or a partnership, you could be held personally liable for almost anything related to the business; that means you will be responsible for paying any business-related debts you incur and you could be sued by your clients, employees, etc.

If you start an LLC, you'll have some degree of liability protection. These business structures allow your business to be treated as if it were an individual of its own. The business itself can take out a loan, incurred debt, and be the target of costly lawsuits - reducing your personal exposure to these financial risks.

Never Take Out Personal Loans

New business owners are tempted to fund the business themselves, even if they don't have the savings to cover those expenses. They take out personal loans, max out their credit cards, or incur debt in other ways to get the money they need.

A few minor expenses here and there won't hurt you, but for the most part, you should never take out personal loans. Instead, work with investors, tap into your savings, or rely on your business credit to take out loans in the business's name.

Focus On Independent Saving Strategies

  • Budgeting and frugality: Be smart with your budgeting and try to remain as frugal as possible.
  • An emergency fund: Set aside at least enough money to cover a few months of personal expenses.

Diversify Your Income Streams

Try to diversify your income streams, both inside the business and on a personal level.

  • Within the business, that could mean selling multiple different types of products and services, monetizing your content or applications in different ways, or even targeting different audiences.
  • The same principle applies to you as an individual. You can diversify your income streams by investing in dividend-paying stocks, investing in real estate, starting independent blogs or websites, or even picking up side gigs.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
