I recently officially registered The Personal Growth Channel LLC as an LLC (Limited Liability Company). If any of you have been in business for very long, you know that eventually, you have to get your employee identification number (EIN), pay your taxes, and jump through all those legal hoops that most entrepreneurs don't want to mess with or you will be limited on how far you can take the business, and it can catch up to you with significant penalties.
Just in case you were thinking of creating your own business, I have to say that services like zenbusiness are pretty painless.
They have a complete checklist that is pretty comprehensive, and they do most of the paperwork for you. If you have ever thought that you should be doing this with your business, you should. It took me less than an hour to get through everything.
