Today's Permission Slip:

Each episode I give you a permission slip - a reminder to give yourself permission to run your business and live your dream life on your own terms.

In today’s episode, Braden shared the importance that comes with setting up an LLC for your business from the beginning, the difference in all of the businesses entities out there, and which one is best for you and your business.

 

I give myself permission to do a mini audit and see if there is any legal housekeeping you need to do to make sure your business is set up legally.

 

So today, I want you to spend a little time doing a mini audit of your business, to see if there is any legal housekeeping you need to do.

And remember, there are some legal documents you can DIY, and some that need to be outsourced to a professional to ensure your business is set up legally.

Don’t discount the fact that having a LLC by your name makes you look like a more legit business owner.
